  1. TOYS FAQ - The New Noobie questions thread

    I'd suggest keeping them inside honestly, especially if we're talking upwards of $1000 of stuff. Insulation would at least help prevent temperature swings though, even in the winter if sun hits where you're storing them it'll heat up inside.
  2. WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    I'm still hoping they release supers for the 31A with an alternate pod or two. Sure I can model my own, but Bandai does good work.

    Looking forwards to the results.

    The less temperature variation, the better. Also, it's better to not go through daily warm/cool cycles if possible.

    Here's some pics of how it attaches: Peg on the VF-31. Hole on the weapons pod.

    Dare I ask how close you are to getting the 3D printed part models ready?
  7. So, which is better overall? Arcadia YF-19 or Bandai VF-19 Advance

    I've got the Arcadia, and it's a nice anime-accurate example of the YF-19, transformation is only mildly infuriating, and it looks all kinds of sexy in fighter mode. Compared to the Yamato one, it's got a lot of improvements (ankles aside...), and the Bandai while awesome isn't accurate to Macross Plus. Now if Bandai releases a YF-19, I will be on top of that. The only real frustrations I've had with my Arcadia 19 are the fast packs and the ankles.

    It's just on a split peg, comes off quite easily. I'll take some pictures later tonight when I'm back home.

    You're in the wrong place if you're talking about responsible spending, here we tempt and enable.
  10. So, which is better overall? Arcadia YF-19 or Bandai VF-19 Advance

    It's been there for a while, might still be there as of Dec. Also it's the third one I've seen on sale over there for similar prices. Right now seems to be a good time to buy used, I guess everyone is selling to afford all the new stuff.
  11. Arcadia 1/60 Super VF-1J Max & Millia Release

    I've been tempted to fix them. A drop of glue and some sanding does wonders, or if they stick out any they can actually be shaved down. The ones that are pitted inside suck since you need spare plastic of the same shade to putty.
  12. So, which is better overall? Arcadia YF-19 or Bandai VF-19 Advance

    Let me enable you for a sec, someone's selling his Arcadia 19 for $265 on the for sale/trade subforum. Which is the lowest I think I've seen one since I snagged mine on sale from HLJ for ¥22,960.

    Honestly, it's more about placement of the gates than anything else. Aside from that just having a good sharp blade does the trick.
  14. WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    All the test parts have finished production, now just waiting for them to ship out. I did not buy a full set, as I'm still checking what materials ought to be used. [edit] And right as I post this, I get shipping notification. Hopefully will have the parts in hand by early next week.
  15. Bandai DX VF-31

    Museum wax is your friend. Grab a container, put something on there that's fairly sturdy, and wax it to the surface it's sitting on.
