  1. Macross Translations, and more

    Only read this today--thanks for that Miyatake interview! I'm really envious of all those info that Japanese readers get from their mecha designers based on interviews like this.
  2. I thought it was a mecha show? Though I only saw the first episode and didn't continue as I felt it was not my type of mecha show.
  3. Macross Books

    It's unfortunate I don't have the budget for this one yet. Could you estimate a ratio of Macross vs non-Macross designs?
  4. Bandai DX VF-31

    Wow so they do keep count of your cancellations. For me I think I only cancelled once or twice from them.
  5. Hi-Metal R

    So my authorization for the VT-1 expired, and thankfully the money I'd been out of was restored to my debit card account. Right now entertaining thoughts of just cancelling the order and putting the money into mutual funds (the PSE is trending downward)... But then again we don't know if we're getting a VF1D (which is what I really want), so maybe I'll keep this order to give me my orange valk fix.
  6. Nendo for Yang Wen-li is up for pre-order: https://hlj.com/product/gsc90580 I say the Galactic Empire (Reinhard) still wins. I would have called it a tie if they included a console for Yang to sit on.

    I actually liked Pailsen Files because I saw it first before the TV series haha. I never really finished the TV series as I get bored after a few episodes, but I like the Scopedogs as they are a unique design. I didn't know Pailsen Files was bad vs other iterations but I guess ignorance is bliss. I also liked Mellowlink. Maybe they should reboot Votoms series and make it not-boring.
  8. Oh, too bad I guess. If I really wanted to I could get it from US stores cheaper then. But then now I'm still not in the mood to spend haha. So Present Hachi is in agreement with Past Hachi for financial mood reasons. But damn, if there was only a Filthy Rich Hachi... I wish
  9. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    After 6 days, I think assembly is mostly done (except maybe stickers and other additional stuff to make it photo- and display-friendly). I only went to work for 2 days this week, so I guess it could have been done in 4 days if there was no interruption due to work. Over-all I admire this kit, and I would not have been so frustrated at first if I didn't have to 'rush' through it. As a consequence I made mistakes but I don't mind as I really wanted to finish this ASAP to ease my backlog of unbuilt kits. Hopefully I can start the next kit to build tomorrow or Sunday.

  11. So HLJ has an Eaglemoss Battlestar Viper II for pre-order but it seems to be more expensive. Is it really the same as this one? Or is it the same but it's imported and they're just reselling it with a bigger markup? https://hlj.com/product/egmbgsuk001
  12. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Next up: Scopedog Berkoff, I'm into green paint schemes today haha. That said, the amount of parts is discouraging me. I was hoping I can finish this in 2 days but I highly doubt it since I'm a slowpoke.
  13. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Build in progress. The green turned out much darker than it should be. I guess I would have to use a real camera instead of a tablet when posing the finished product.
  14. Bandai DX VF-31

    Can't the government just collect that tax via customs? If I were a seller I wouldn't bother about it or just stop shipping to AUS. What penalties would they impose on the seller anyway?
