  1. I'm in for one. For the in-scale fighter are we talking about the Legioss/Tread combo? Three of those I guess could also be considered 6 aircraft so I wasn't sure. Thanks, Carl
  2. Is this the image you are looking at? If so the head-fin appears to be completely blocked by the front landing gear, so I'm not sure how you can tell if the fin is dragging or not. If there is another image you are referring to, could you post it or a link? Thanks, Carl
  3. Ok.... just got an email from Shawn. Looks like these were the same project. This post should tell you who my source was and fills in the gap between 2007 and 2009. Carl P.S. Does this mean I should take those PDF files down? Not really intending to open an old wound.
  4. The source I got these PDF files from is NOT Roger Harkavy. Going back and checking my email, my first contact with Roger was in May 2009. The files I just posted were files I obtained in 2007, which is well before I was aware of what Roger was working on. I suppose that it is possible that the "friend" referred to by my source was Roger (I honestly don't know) but I have a collection of line art that I've received directly from Roger in 2009 and 2010 that I believe has very little overlap with these 3 pdf files. I went through that first looking for the image Akim posted and I didn't see it there. I'll check again. There is obviously a few details from 2007 to 2010 that I've forgotten myself but at least at the time I made the above post I was thinking these were separate projects. Carl
  5. WOW!!!! I don't remember seeing this before. Great find Akim!!! What!!! That is from me!? I guess after years of collecting Mospeada stuff I was bound to forget something. Let me do some digging and see if I can find where this came from. That's it!!! I knew I had read someplace that went into more detail. As for "why Imai wanted it" I think I got that from here: http://www.starshipmodeler.com/mecha/ls_mos.htm This appears to be speculation so shouldn't be stated as fact. And good news... digging through my Mospeada files I found the image Akim posted. Its in one of 3 PDF files I paid $5 for back in 2007. Here they are: http://wwwmwww.com/Mospeada/New/mospe001.PDF http://wwwmwww.com/Mospeada/New/mospe002.PDF http://wwwmwww.com/Mospeada/New/mospe003.PDF The image Akim posted is page 21 of the mospe002.PDF file. Digging though my emails, I see where I asked the source of these files this question: And the response started off with this: The specific details behind the book and why it was "shut down" he asked me to keep "under wraps" so I don't think I should say too much more. But these 3 PDF files are apparently just a sample of the pictures being collected for this book. Again this was back in 2007, and this source I believe found me through MacrossWorld. I think he's a forum member here but I don't know his forum ID (I probably did at the time but it is not in the email and I don't remember it) so I cannot check if he's still active or not. If he is and wants to share more details he's certainly welcome to. It is also interesting to note that those two images appear to be essentially traced from the images seen on page 13 and page 20 and then added to. Carl
  6. I believe the missile pod between the arms is removable. Can any one confirm? Are there any pictures of it in fighter mode with this removed? My understanding of the history of this addition is that Imai added it to their initial Legioss model to cover an unsightly hole between the arms in their model. I remember reading the details someplace long ago but cannot seem to find the exact link now. Its mentioned in passing here: http://www.starshipmodeler.com/mecha/ls_mos.htm and here: http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=10263 But I recall a link that went into more detail. If anyone else knows the where this is discussed please share. I know its never seen in the show and I'm 99% sure its not seen in any of the line art either. Anyways, I hope it is removable and not necessary to hold the arms in position in fighter mode. Granted this is a re-design, but this addition is something I always though hurt the generally look of the Legioss. Carl
  7. I design twisty puzzles, puzzle rings, and a some packing puzzles. I've also written for Game & Puzzle Design. Here is my lastest twisty puzzle. Its the Double Circle Real 6×6×6, which is effectively a 2×2×2, inside of a 4×4×4, all inside of a 6×6×6 with all 216 cubies solvable. I got my own K40 laser cutter up and running to cut out the acrylic tiles for me. WOW5 and WASP are two of my puzzle ring designs. Hex-Pave is one of my packing puzzles. Carl
  8. Nice GIF!! That makes me wonder if anyone has tried to make a GIF of the full transformation from bike to armor mode. If so I'd love to see it. Carl
  9. Thanks!!! Carl
  10. Has anyone been able to download the LDD instructions? When I click that link I just get the message "Error (404) We can't find the page you're looking for." Not sure if its a problem at my end or the other end. Carl
  11. I recognize the drop ship and the APC in the above picture. What is the mech? I don't recall seeing that in Aliens. Carl
  12. I'm pretty sure this Legioss was designed with a future Tread planned. Note the stand they are using, it makes use of the Tread's connecting boom. So they already have that part molded. While I agree that its eventual release may depend on how well the Legioss sells, I tend to think that if they make one Tread that they will make all three. At that point the expensive molds have already been made, it is trivial just to pour a different colored plastic into them. Carl
  13. Agreed... it looks like they loaded their 3D model upside down before applying the super-deformed transformation.
  14. Hey... you guys making fun of my ride armor? Carl
