    How is the HMR VF-2SS? I really like the fighter but don't care about the SAP. Don't know if it's worth buying or not, seems really fiddly.

    I have to agree it's fiddly but not so much like the 1/60 counterpart. It's the best VF-2SS out there so far.



    The world of Pokémon comes to life!

    The first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic face of the global Pokémon brand—one of the world’s most popular, multi-generation entertainment properties and most successful media franchises of all time.

    Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The film also showcases a wide array of beloved Pokémon characters, each with its own unique abilities and personality.

    The story begins when ace private eye Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened. Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu: a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself. Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery. Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.

    “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” also stars Justice Smith (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”) as Tim; Kathryn Newton (“Lady Bird,” TV’s “Big Little Lies”) as Lucy, a junior reporter following her first big story; and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (“Godzilla,” “The Last Samurai”) as Lt. Yoshida.

    Directed by Rob Letterman (“Goosebumps,” “Monsters Vs. Aliens”), the “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” creative filmmaking team includes two-time Oscar nominated director of photography John Mathieson (“The Phantom of the Opera,” “Gladiator”), production designer Nigel Phelps (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Lies”) and Oscar-winning editor Mark Sanger (“Gravity”). Visual effects are by Moving Picture Company (“Wonder Woman”) and Framestore (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”).

    Launched in 1996 to overwhelming response, the Pokémon brand is a global sensation that now encompasses a robust video gaming fandom with over 300 million units sold worldwide; the Pokémon Trading Card Game available in 11 languages with more than 23.6 billion cards shipped; an animated television series in its 21st season that is available in more than 160 countries; and over 20 animated films; as well as books, manga comics, music, toys, merchandise, and apps, including the wildly popular Pokémon GO, that has been downloaded over 850 million times and is enjoyed across the globe by fans of all ages.

    “POKÉMON Detective Pikachu” is set for release on Friday, May 10, 2019.

    The film will be distributed outside of Japan and China by Warner Bros. Pictures, in Japan by Toho Company, Ltd. and by Legendary East in China.

    I'm just going on the bases if the Arcadia VF-1J with the GBP gets reissued on PE Format. 

    We all know that the valk will be dotted up with more tampo graphs and weathered out, there's not much area to darken the GBP since its mostly in blue sans the white areas that can be actually darkened. 

    Am I right on my hypothesis? :pardon:





    Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called “Forky” to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy. Directed by Josh Cooley (“Riley’s First Date?”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Inside Out,” “Up”) and Mark Nielsen (associate producer “Inside Out”), Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” ventures to U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019.

    Woo! According to the Goodsmile website the vf-1 will be released on the 21st of November https://www.goodsmile.info/en/post/4788/Release+Dates+and+Changes+for+November+2018+Products.html


    Two days after I arrive in Japan! ...Sadly I had preordered this monster on CDJapan (well, not too sad cos the price was just too good)

    I'm pretty sure you're going to pickup another one while you're in Japan. ;)

    No problem.  B))

    If you’re looking for brown costume Wolverine for Blue Team, try to find it loose for cheap.  For using Tiger Stripe Wolverine instead, it should still be easy to find.  If I had my spare Rogue, I would have sold it to you but I returned it to TRU a long time ago way before it closed down.  Instead of classic Cyclops maybe go for the Jim Lee Cyclops.  For Psylocke, there are two versions and the one pictured on the right is easier to find.  As for the most recent Archangel, it should work fine for Gold Team.  Here are the three versions and the one in the middle was given metallic wings.

    I’m going to give the edge to sh9000...

    It’s too bad you didn’t get into this a few months earlier.  For some odd reason over the summer my local Walmarts went nuts stocking the previous X-Men releases and there were Cykes and Rogues all over the place.  I’ll poke my head in one I’m not as likely to stop by this week and see if they still have one of them  laying around.

    I’ve never tracked down that black haired Psylocke.  FYI, the common figure here in the states is the purple version, and not the black.  I think the blue on her costume is better than the oddly purple-ish color of the costume on the purple hair one you’ll find in stores.

    Unless you’re looking to recreate the earlier Claremont 70’s/80’s teams, or you’re just a fan of attractive figures, there’s no need to find the Cyke/Phoenix two-pack.  Though the light paint shading on the Cyke figure looks real good.

    If you’re looking to complete the Gold team as well the latest release of Archangel is a must.  His costume wasn’t the shiny metallic of the earlier release figure in the 90’s comics.  That shiny metallic look is a more modern interpretation.

    sh, where did you find the optic blast custom again?  Cyke does not come with a cool effect like that out of the box.

    Thanks guys! I know I'm really too late to join the club so I kind of paying more from what I've missed. Overnight, I caved and bid the cheapest Cyclops and Rogue I could find via eBay. So I think I'm covered now from what's available. Cyclops (Warlock BAF), Rouge (Juggernaut BAF), Archangel, Psylocke (Apocalypse BAF), Bishop (Sauron BAF), and Wolverine (Vintage Line). I'm not sure what Pylocke I would get from BBTS since you guys referring to that the one available here mostly in the US is the purple one? So I'm assuming I will get the purple one from BBTS? I was hoping it's the black haired one since I kinda like the blue costume than the purple one. Though I prefer the purple hair head. ^_^ And this is just from the photos I saw online for some comparisons. I'll probably wait first to see what I will receive from BBTS before deciding if I should get the other one.

    Also, to be honest, I'm not too happy with Psylocke's face so I was browsing around old ML figures and see if I could replace it with something. And I stumbled into X-23's face from the Sauron BAF series. And I kinda like her face than the ones Psylocke currently have. I was wondering though if you guys have it and see if the flesh color matches for both heads and see what it's look like on Psylocke's body. And to see also if the face effect would also fit on it. Thanks in advance if you guys are kind enough to post pics of it.

    And yes, I will also get the Gold Team. So for the upcoming releases, that will include Gambit, Beast (pic posted above by sh9000), Jubilee, and Professor X? Any news also for Jean Grey? As for a villain, I'll probably just get Magneto. Any news if there's going to be a new one based on Jim Lee's run?

    Yeah, that custom optic blast looks cool. Love to get one in the future. :rolleyes:

    Lastly, did anyone here tried on customizing one? I just want to know if anyone tried to remove the arm and if it's an easy process. Thanks again guys... for influencing me! ;)


  7. Ok. So I caved and ordered what X-Men available at BBTS. At this point I’m not sure who to blame for me to go down this path — Mommar or sh9000? :lol:

    Kidding aside, I konw I’m a little bit late in starting it so I’m lurking eBay for Rogue. I’m also reconsidering if I should get the Cyclops and Red Phoenix set. Also, is getting the purple hair Psylocke necessary? Is there any differences besides the hair? And what version would go nicely for the rest of the Blue Team? By the way, I ordered the latter release of Archangel so not sure if that would help with the overall look for the Blue Team since from what I understand from Mommar, he has a dull costume and metallic wings.

    Thanks guys for influencing me! ^_^

    Found them on taobao recently. Sorry not sure if its ok to post links here or not.

    I think it's fine since this is the grey market thread for these.

    I mean, we also have FEXT thread which is also not 'official' but they still post FEXT links. ;)

    Can VF-1S DYRL Max be duplicated by using a VF-1A DYRL Max and swapping out the wings and nose cone with those from a VF-1S DYRL Roy or Hikaru? Or are there additional differences?

    You forgot to mention swapping the head too. Besides those three, I think you're good to do the swapping. ^_^

    Finally got around to finishing up the valkyrie flown by the shortest-tenured skull leader. :rolleyes:


    And with that I'm done with skull leader units forever!

    It's just gorgeous sir. Gorgeous. :wub:

    $150 for a excellent condition Yamato VF-19S Emerald Force. Decent price?

    I think it is. Just so you know, there's a used one in Mandarake for Y25000. Anything that's under 180 is already a bargain. ;)

    I just put mine back into fighter mode.  One of the legs just doesn't wanna line up right, no matter what I do, and I've learned the hard way to NOT FORCE ANYTHING.  With no extra parts on, it looks pretty decent.  But if I try to add the fast packs, the ONE peg that pegs into the leg covers causes the whole plastic wing to stretch really far.  I get uncomfortable looking at it.  So.  No fast packs in fighter mode.  Just makes me too nervous the way the tolerances are tested to the limit.   Regular fighter and battroid are fine, but man....I do NOT like the way the fast packs are designed.  Seems like a really bad idea to leave it in that configuration for any amount of time.   Maybe it's just mine.

    Are you referring to the wing tab that needs to insert on the leg fast packs? If it is, then that wing tab shouldn't be inserted to the leg's fast pack since it's not going to reach the slot and you're just going to stress it.

    This is from Jenius' Anymoon site showing the 'untabbed' tab.


    Let us know if you're referring the same and if I understand correctly. Thanks. :)
