  1. Hi, please see my PM

  2. DERP: pressed quote button on wrong post and wasn't paying attention, LOL
  3. I'm a collector of B2Five's Acid Rain and Votoms stuff. It might not be line accurate, but B2Five toys are some of my favorite toys to play with: they're well built, very poseable, fun to transform (for the transforming ones), and they're just made really smart (integrated holding spots for extra weapons, etc.) . I'm really looking forward to these! They're not as photogenic, but if you ever played with starcom or MASK toys or exosquad as a kid, it totally brings back all those feels

    Thank you for the heads up! I ordered one! Now I just need Chuck's armor and cannon fodder's armor so I can put them and Arad together in one ridiculous display of CG gun dumpage
  5. @Rogueload Pleasure doing business! Glad you got your bird!
  6. Bump: pics finally posted: I sure don't know how to use t3h interw3bz!
  7. Hi there, I can't seem to find a good hi-res pic of this. Ideally, if you could put it next to a normal VF-25 gun mount, I'd appreciate it: i came into possession of a spare VF-25G rifle and want to convert one of my VF-25A's via 3D print but I'd like to know roughly where to start in terms of design.
  8. I keep forgetting to take pictures, so I'm posting this during the day partly to force myself to post pics tonight . Both fighters come with boxes and fixed pose hands (minus one for VF-31A no. 2 since it was used for the articulated right hand repair). VF-31A no. 1 Condition B First candidate, mildly used VF-31A displayed in fighter mode. I transformed it once to address the cockpit gap and to check for other damage. It was purchased used from YJA. There is some small discoloration at the front of the canards where they were damaged probably from someone who didn't know to pull them out before rotating when going to gerwalk. I have put them in 120F water and tried to gently rebend them to shape followed by some blended Copic marker to fade out the stress marks. Asking $425 shipped to CONUS OBO. Image showing canard damage: VF-31A no. 2 Condition C $OLD Second candidate, another used VF-31A that convinced me never to order from Surugaya ever again. It came to me missing the intake covers, the whole friggin articulated right hand, and one knife. It also came with very damaged canards, so I ended up trying to repair by gentle sanding similar to how you would work out a chip in a knife. This one has some paint scuffed off on the right shoulder that is visible in battroid mode. There's some unevenness in the matte finish under one wing typical of this valk. Also, the crotch plate metal connection bar appears to have been taken out at some point, for what purpose I have no idea- I have reinserted it, but it is alot easier to pull out now than a minty fresh valk- you can see the plastic worn slightly more than it should be (edges not as sharp) if you look at it in fighter mode. I purchased a VF-31J right hand, removed the white cover plate, and carefully sanded down the grey cover plate from one of the fixed posed hands to replace it along with puttying up the gaps using an orumayu mold (IMHO it is very hard to distinguish from the original hand now). $SOLD Showing off the fighter: Shoulder Scuff and canard damage: In terms of trades I'm open to offers, worst I can say is no. I'm a fan of, you guessed it, 1/60 macross.
  9. I'm guessing this one is a long shot... anyone have a vf-31 with armor or fastpack's permanently attached and don't need the intake covers?
  10. IMHO the VF-4 displays great next to the VF-0A and VF-31A as they all have realistic, military looking paint jobs.

    Question for those of you who have had the armor on your VF-31S for a while... have you noticed any special fatigue? Particularly wondering about anyone brave enough to keep it in battroid mode
  12. I know the camera angle is contributing a lot to this, but I get the feeling that the fighter mode is a creepy creeper old man in a trench coat getting ready to flash me. It's just... the paneling looks like its trying to hide something instead of being very integrated, if that makes sense. Again, hoping its just the angle and/or transformation error/proto tolerances.
