    I can't be the only who always attempt (usually successful) to perfect transform it. From G to B: keep the swing bar connected, attach the hip bar to nose, don't lock the chest, disconnect the swing bar and fold it into chest, lock hip bar and chest.
  2. I don't recall any 1/48 with V1 or V2. Only 1/60 have completely different V1, V2, and V2 had sub versions. with improvements.

    https://imgur.com/a/0IgbZjr You can keep the gun strap in fighter mode, if you are willing to extend the gun pod a bit and leave the arms a bit loose. - don't push the arms into the tabs. Fighter mode adapter still attach OK but it will put a bit pressure on the forward gun strap pin. Gun still stay above ground with land gears out.

    The funniest part of the manual is gerwalk step 2 - open the air brake when deploy the leg. Totally not needed unless you are re-enacting the animation.

    For those that still haven't seen enough. https://imgur.com/a/8hR3nmS My copy have no major issue. I found the clicky hinge under the intakes sounded differently between two legs - one is tighter and one is more lose, but not lose enough to cause problem.
  6. https://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/4660/Full+Action+Model+Chamber.html Chamber from Gargantia. Not really related to FMP but the Chamber A.I. reminds of ARX-7/8's Al .

    Can the head drop down and acts as a turret in F and G mode?

    Guys, don't hate on the small shops too much on the added shipping cost. The bonus stand added 33% size to the box, but I think Bandai probably just gave everyone the regular release size data, since the re-issue will be that size with the same UPC code. Those small shop are not going to eat the cost which is not their fault.

    http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOGDS-316817 CD Japan have the missile now. Cost more than NY but cost much less in shipping. Don't forget the little coupon: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/campaign/coupon/18yearend And speaking of NY shipping, I had a SAL package that took almost a month to move inside Japan. Not sure if they slow it because of the postal worker strike in the final destination Canada.
