  1. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    Metal Build AoZ MS would be a dream come true.

  3. Arcadia 1/60 VF-1J 35th Anniversary

    It's not the greatest scheme but I kinda like it. I'll buy it.
  4. MAZINGER Z INFINITY: in theatres January 2018

    Same here Noel, but I watched the movie and I liked it. Hadn't seen anything Mazinger Z related in 30 years, since I was ten. The movie was ok, not the end of all be but not the worst movie either. It might help that I'm not a harcore fan. Loved the MB the moment I saw it. It's a great modern representation IMO. I have a preorder with AmiAmi so I'm very excited with this release.

    Will do the Gundam marker trick to my Beagle Stick.
  6. soy nuevo. que me compro?

    Si estás en Argentina hay que estar preparado a pagar 50% de impuesto en aduana, eso como advertencia para cuando te decidas a comprar. Pero no es muy complicado, solo hay que cumplir con algunos requisitos, hay que tener Clave Fiscal para hacer a traves de la pagina de AFIP la declaración jurada para pagar el impuesto de importación y retirar en Aduana. Bandai Hi Metal R, que son 1/100 son una gran opción ya que disponés de mechas enemigas y Destroids y de a poco empiezan a salir mas VF-1 y el VF-2SS De Arcadia/Yamato tenes la línea más completa en escala 1/60 de series como Macross Zero, Macross (serie original), Macross Plus, Macross 7 De Bandai tenes también la linea DX con valks principalmente de Macross Frontier y Macross Delta, también excelentes figuras y su escala es 1/60.
  7. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Yes, I checked and my PO is from October 1st. It's one of my most anticipated releases of 2018.
  8. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    I'm waiting for the Metal Build Mazinger Z Infinity. Can't remember how many months have past since I preordedred it at AmiAmi.
  9. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Resisted too long getting mechs from Macross Delta!!! This is the beginning:
  10. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Cool customs!!! I agree it's better to have Misa on the back instead of Minmay
  11. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Fair enough There's a chance X-transbots releases their version or Takara steps into the game.
  12. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    How about Sovereign, Fans Toys Galvatron. It's a great MP Galvatron, (I don't care too much about space cannon mode) It's been out for a year and I still keep taking it from the shelf.
  13. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    I need VF-1A Angelbirds, VF-X and VF-1J, then my VF-1 collection will be complete
  14. Why do you collect MISB?

    I free all off my toys, but I keep the boxes.
  15. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Max VF-1J added to the collection, finally!!!!

    You're welcome!!! I've tried to give a honest opinion about this toy as a fan. Given it's asking price, and since it does not have the finish, construction and materials as a premium Bandai DX or a Yamato/Arcadia VF, this toy is definitely for the hardcore collector.

    I've recently seen the ET VF-2SS go for as low as U$S80. So patience does pay off.

    A friend of mine has the VF-2SS and comparing them, the Legioss feels much better. It is a similar plastic as the one used with the CM's Leguoss but it's thin. Adding thickness to the structure of the pieces would mean more heft but also more sturdiness. It has locking tabs but sometimes they become untabbed. Looking at Jenius review, it is evident his Legioss has a front fuselage with a floppy connection to the rest of the body in fighter mode. Mine is pretty solid. This Legioss is headed in the right direction, but it still has a lot of room for improvement. It gets a passing mark from me because of my bias towards this design. But Evolution Toys should deliver a much better product for the asking price. I can't wait for this toy to hit the bargain bins (given it's a transformable toy made by ET it's very likely) because I'm a sucker for Mospeada and the Legioss, so I had to have it now.

    Thank you Noel!!! I'm happy with it but my wallet hates me. It's a decent toy, much better than the VF-2SS. It photoghraphs well, it looks good, and the articulation is better than previous Legioss toys (although the feet would benefit from ankles that could tilt from side to side). The plastic used and the price of this figure are the Achilles heel.

    Yes, yellowing is my main concern, I also want to give this bird an even finish (some painted panels have different finish). Thanks for reminding me about the canopy!!!!

    Started stickering my Legioss because it looks plain without any markings. I'm considering doing a flat coat (but have to test the reaction of the stickers with the coat first). Had no time to take proper pics so here are some cellphone ones:
  22. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    I'll pass, although I still don't have a regular one. Waiting for a reissue.
