    Nice job there but that's more work than I'm willing to put in for a Kakizaki figure. :lol:

    The stands that come with CM figures are garbage. I've been replacing them.

    What? CM made a Sivil figure?! Is that a custom? If not, I need one!

    That's Ishtar.

    There was never a Sivil in the Macross CMs.


  2. As much as I like the new GFFMC Zaku-II, however, it just doesn't really quite rock the double-bazooka look like the Kampfer does to my eyes...


    I do hope Bandai makes a GFFMC Kampfer soon to correct such deficiency...



  3. Ok, thanks.

    I should've mentioned not using any stands and just having it stationary using its own landing gears.

    I don't like Bandai's rinky-dink stands, as it seems to just sometimes just hide the problem.

    oh, fwiw and iirc, it was in Jenius'  written review instead of his yt-review where he mentioned along the potential for the arms to sag or get misaligned due to the simple pegs that Bandai didn't improve on since the Hikaru-1J.

    You seemed to allude/believe that there was a reason beyond animation errors regarding the need for Hikaru's heat shield on his Strike -1S to be red.....

    The final and only scenes in DYRL involving Hikaru's Strike -1S involved no other VF-1...thus there was no reason to "differentiate the hero".....it was purely an animation error that was apparently not worth correcting prior to theatrical release...

    Ironically, this was tied into a Bandai marketing stunt when the Bandai Strike VF-1S was released...I am sure you know what I am referring to....

    Oh and to add fuel to the fire regarding the "color morphing" on VF-1's....the early "sneak peak" of DYRL featured a scene of the Roy Strike -1S with no yellow chest stripe...that eventually was "color" corrected before the same exact scene appeared on the actual theatrical release...so I suppose maybe they were on a time crunch by the time they animated the "final battle" with Hikaru's Strike -1S....:unknw:


    There was no animation error with Hikaru's valk.

    There were only two animation errors in DYRL (Max-1A's red/blue heatshield and Roy-1S yellow heat-shield), and both were already corrected by the time the DYRL Remastered-version was released.

    As for the "red-to-black-and-back-again", it'll just be some intentional shadow/shade effect the animators were doing. Like the glare effect when he did his alpha-strike.


    As such, any body here have had their Strike-FP Hikaru in valk-mode and notice any issues (sagging or whatever...) ?

    I'm still reluctant to put mine on Strike-FP valk-mode coz of Jenius' findings in his review.



  5. speaking of Chirico, am trying to appreciate this tiny and rather rinkydink 1/28 b2five edition by trying to replicate the old encyclopedia art cover...




    oh, and Vanilla's afro is always awesome...


  6. As previously announced by various import-shops (hlj, ami, etc) a week or so ago, DHL (and possibly FedEX) is adding new surcharges on top of their usual shipping-fees for most of the regular import-shops. 

    So DHL shipping-fees is currently alot more expensive now than it used to be to ship items out of Japan.

    It will depend on individual import-shops on how much extra charges to apply on your imports.

    Interestingly however, Amzn-japan's dhl-shipping is not affected (yet)...




  7. It'll be nice if Arcadia pivots a bit from traditional re-issue practices and sneaks in some new goodies like DYRL hands/fists as well their standard Option Parts with this upcoming Armored VF-1J, errr, reissue.

    They'll prolly get to tease and encourage the current owners to re-buy the set again...

    Yeah that's the one i have (Arcadia first release). The box itself has the white googles on it. 
    Thinking about it i remember being dissapointed because the vf-1j had a loose backpack hook right out of the box. I kind of wonder if i did get screwed.


    Unfortunately, as Jenius mentioned, it is looking like you have gotten a swapped regular Hikky-1J in your Arcadia-box instead.


  9. Just now, Sandman said:

    That is strange since it was bought new and not used.

    Very strange, indeed.

    Unless you're talking about just the Hikky-1J standalone or Fast-Pack edition.  Those did not come with gray-goggles.

    Then again, those are old Yammies, too. 

    Afaik, Arcadia has not released a standalone or even Fast-Pack Hikky-1J. 

    They've only released the Armored Hikky-1J GPB set.

    Wha?? Mine doesn't. I know the yamato did.

    Hmm. That's weird.

    Can't remember if Jenius/Anymoon had a video-review of it, but here's the RPA unboxing and review of the original Arcadia release...

    How do gun pods go from fighter to hands? Magnets? Magic?

    In space, prolly just eject and grab via manipulator-controls.   No air in space to offer resistance.

    In earth atmospheric conditions, anime magic like below...

    Damn no PF. Have the orginal arcadia release but will probably buy this if it is grey google. Wish it was pf too to justify getting another.

    Arcadia while you are at lets see a pf of the yf-19 so it can have tampooed intake warnings like it should have had from the beginning.

    Wait, what?

    Arcadia's original release has the grey-goggles...

    How can Bandai not do it?

    They made Messer's, Hayate's and Mirage's. 

    Bandai loves to milk mold and suck us dry for extras. :D
