    That’s lame. But I will still totally repaint a $20 figure. 3D print/scratch building a bolter should be fairly easy. And if they’ve designed the bolter already, they’ll likely include it with another release. 
    If the first round sells well, I’m sure McFarlane will give us a Space Wolf.

    My Bandai is set to arrive today, and I’m probably just going to put it up for sale.

    Just get the two pack with the painted and unpainted one mentioned above, comes with a bolt rifle

    Why wouldn't the articulation come close?  It's already not that great on the Bandai one.

    Disagree, I feel the articulation is very good on the Bandai, and the Mcfarlane ones seem to be more the in range of the traditional action figure, but we'll know for certain about six months from now. 

  3. The price point may make this a no brainer, and they do look very nice, but I doubt they'll come close to the articulation of the Bandai.  They're also likely to get a wider range of figures out faster, so I'll definitely be picking up a Dark Angel or Deathwing terminator.


  4. Like others have said, it is a little lacking on detail, it is essentially a brand new Primaris Space Marine in Armor right off the assembly line.  No purity seals or battle damage, and just the knife and Bolter.  That said I think the Articulation is awesome, you can get him into just about any pose you've seen on a miniature.  If this is the only one produced, then I'm glad I got him, if they ever come out with a Dark Angel space marine, or better yet Deathwing Terminator, I think he's going to another home. 

  5. Can't wait to see what it looks like! Sucks about the dent, but unless you display the box....  like you said, as long as the item is intact.  I just got a Fed Ex shipping notice, so that was 5 days after the initial shipping notice.  Should be here by thurs.

    Overall I didn't do to bad. Not killer pricing though. $299.24/ unit shipped. Worth it for both. Not "Wow, what a great deal!" though.

    It's those Yamato 1/48 boxes, they're massive.  I'm pretty sure they automatically bump the package into the next price category. 

  7. For Sale:  Arcadia 2013 issue DYRL VF-1S.  This is the version that includes the clear plastic storage stand and decals as well as stickers. 

    The box is in very good condition with mild shelf wear as shown.

    Model is in excellent condition with no known defects.

    Includes all original accessories including option parts. 

    $160 plus actual shipping, if paying for goods and services via Paypal please add 3% to total price.  I'm mentioned on the strait shooters list, and my ebay profile levzloi has perfect feedback over 15 years.



  8. I know that some people are upset that the Star Wars fans on here aren't waiting patiently to find out if it will be good or not.  I think they could pull off a good product if they have proper direction, vision, and most of all sound writing and good stories.  Unfortunately, I think what we're seeing with the white board is writing/design by committee.  What we're most likely to end up with is inoffensive, unimaginative, with plenty of virtue signaling.  Disney's wildest dream is to turn Star Wars into the Marvel franchise pumping out fun entertaining and ultimately forgettable movies on a quarterly basis.  That Star Wars will not even closely resemble the original trilogy in tone, direction, and quality.  But it will make money hand over fist.

    Sounds like a case of get-home-it is.  The pilot was being pressured (internally or externally) to get the aircraft home.  This is the cause of a lot of crashes.  Racing the weather, passengers being demanding, even just general pilot fatigue.  I studied a number of crashes where that was basically the cited cause.  Heck even with JFK-Jr, though in that case there were numerous factors (distraction from passengers, flying IFR when he was only VFR rated, limited time in the aircraft, flying into a notoriously hard to get into airport, and vestibular spoofing due to lack of Visual input).  I will wait for the NTSB report.

    Definitely agree, could be more going on, including material failure, but until the investigation is complete, that’s my guess.

    So then would you call that incompetence of the pilot? Reports seem to read that they just circled the area just letting the fog get denser and denser changing from low altitude to higher getting further up into the clouds thinking they were following the freeway until they smacked into a hill. But also, shouldn't of there been some kind of radar or device to help or something? He frequently used his private helicopter for travels It just seems odd that this would happen in such a way. Also sad that it seems they were going to a basketball game and another parent and fellow team member of his daughter were there as well.

    I wouldn’t say incompetence, but very poor decision making, that was an expensive, nice and very capable helicopter, and they seemed to be trying to make an off airport landing in poor conditions.  Maybe the pilot felt pressure, maybe he was over confident, but those were not conditions I would personally fly in without an instrument flight plan unless somebody’s life was on the line.

    With a plane, it can still function with a single engine or if all failed still have a chance to glide to safety. With a helicopter, you're basically on a cage that's free falling and I also think much harder to control (when sh*t happens).

    Helicopters can autorotate, ie glide, I fly both helicopters and airplanes, and I feel far more comfortable in a single engine helicopter that I can autorotate into someone’s backyard, than a single engine airplane that requires an open field to land in an emergency.  Just my two cents.  

    At any rate (without any special knowledge of the incident outside the news) this seems to be a case of IIMC and CFIT.  The pilot most likely flew into the clouds, lost visual reference, and then flew a perfectly good aircraft into the ground.  Tragic and stupid.

    No. More details please..

    At the end of Ben's internal conversation with his memory of Han, Ben say's "Dad..."  Han replies "I know.."

    That's actually one of my favorite moments in the movie, despite a ton of reservations I have about the movie as a whole, I think they really hit the right note in that scene.  Anyway I guess I was caught up in the emotion and missed it the first 2 times.  Made me LOL this time, I think I annoyed some of the other movie goers with the timing.
