  1. MOSPEADA INBIT KIT REVIVAL IV: EAGER?

    Send me a PM and I'll transmit the payment info.
  2. MOSPEADA INBIT KIT REVIVAL IV: EAGER?

    Hey guys! I've got the pre-requisite orders and can now accept payment. I'm updating the shipping information in the first thread. When all the payments are in, I'll begin the silicone surgery.

    Indeed, I think some people grossly underestimate the cost and complexity involved with manufacturing, especially when subcontracting is involved. Just an FYI, know that the toys that you see in big retail stores are loss leaders, so night-and-day difference with highly detailed collector toys. With that said, ET deserves praise for scaling-up their Legioss so far beyond the published stats. In fact, it comes closer than any previous Legioss toy to the anime style sheet size comparison. Based on the size of the pilot in the Gosu cockpit that Ted posted, it's probably still a hair undersized, but close enough.

    Thank you for all the awesome photos, Ted! I'm glad to see that it has markings and those will definitely enhance the appearance once applied. I wonder how it would look next to the Gosu.

    Ted, does it come with sticker markings? Please tell me that it does. Looks very promising size-wise

    Do keep us updated. Can't wait to see good in-hand pics and honest feedback.
  7. MOSPEADA INBIT KIT REVIVAL IV: EAGER?

    For those of you in Asia or South-America: I've noticed a lot of interest from the latter sector, but shipping a single kit can be ridiculously expensive, so here's an idea. Have you considered group-buys to offset high shipping costs? Better yet, for those who love the building/painting process, you can get one or two extra kits, build/paint them, and then sell them for a profit as works of art/collectibles. It's not like there's anyone else muscling-in on the Inbit market, it's yours for the taking.

    There are thrusters in the wrists and heels as you can see in the pic on the left. What I think would have been a nice touch would have been to hinge the ankle armor. This would give the soldier more poseability/wider stance options and also give the fighter multi-axis thrust-vectoring... Like a Valkyrie but better without violating the line-art outright.

    So I had me a little fun with those high-def screen captures... Poor inbits can't catch a break. No wonder they're so crabby!
  10. MOSPEADA INBIT KIT REVIVAL IV: EAGER?

    Ted, I think this would be a great opportunity to mix a fuschia maybe a little deeper than the Char pink, which would be perfect as the main Eager color. Most people paint the Eagers a rusty brown, but your screen grabs clearly show a more vivid color.

    Yeah, in the anime the inbit is contained within an egg, which they simply place into the cockpit. Maybe after the insertion, they turn-on the heater, the egg thing melts and the inbit just floats in that green goo like some sort of inbit jacuzzi.
  12. Hi Man !!!!!! How are you ??? I am very happy for your new project !!!! Please count on me :D

  13. Hello once again! Following on the success of my previous releases, I'd like to propose a re-issue of my 1/48 resin kit BABY CRAB (Mospeada Inbit Eager doppleganger) as my next project. The kit would consist of: -2 Baby crabs: one with legs & beam guns, one space version equipped with flight booster (no beam guns.). Base price $134 CAD -Price: $163 CAD shipped in the US or Canada for 1 set, $302 CAD for 2 sets. -Overseas: $186 CAD shipped for airmail. If you require a shipping method w/tracking, please contact me for specific rates but be warned: the fees are heart attack-inducing! I'd need 10 committed orders to go ahead, with payment due up-front. Who's with me?
  14. Bandai to release Star Wars Model kits

    Along those lines, the center console also changed (got fatter) between ANH and ESB... And the fuzzy dice were taken down.
  15. Bandai to release Star Wars Model kits

    To shed more light on the topic, there were actually several Millenium Falcons used in the shooting of ESB: -The newly-built 32" model, which was used in most of the space scenes. The smaller model, while having different surface details, hull curvature and the addition of headlights compared to its 5' predecessor, by virtue of its smaller size, allowed for more leeway in filming the more dynamic flight sequences the film called for. -The 5' model previously used in ANH, now having "magically" sprouted extra hull boxes and landing gear with no on-screen explanation. This model was used to film the landing/departing sequences on the Cloud City platform (pics below). This is also the model they added landing gear to (which the 32" didn't have.) It may or may not have been used in the "landing claw" sequence of the Star Destroyer. -The full-size mock-up, with all its inconsistencies and newly-added landing lights. -A much smaller (1/144-ish?) model used in the filming of the asteroid monster sequence -A digital model was used for the updated films for the in-flight approach to Cloud City. So in point-of-fact, Bandai could very simply update their existing kit and legitimately claim that it faithfully represents the Falcon as seen in ESB, even if only used in a couple of sequences. To make a single model "accurate" to anything more than specific sequences is physically impossible by virtue of the dissimilarity of the various models and props used. So whether we want to admit it or not, when most people say "accurate" they really just mean accurate to the Falcon as they imagine it in their own mind. Bandai already cheated by incorporating an ESB version cockpit, detailed engine grilles, a landing ramp and landing gear--none of which the 5ft studio model had.
