    Isn't it obvious?...

  1. ^ Long sorrowful sigh... what could've been... I don't mean to disparage the F-22, it's an extremely capable and wonderful looking ASF in its own right... certainly far better looking than its YF-22 prototype; but just look at the sheer beauty that is the YF-23 and imagine what a refined F-23 would be like...
  2. THAT is a fantastic, simple fix, and makes a world of difference to its ability to display with same-scale figures. I'm definitely going to give it a try.
  3. I too was extremely disappointed with 2202, both from a story point of view and its execution; a real shame that they took what was almost universally regarded as the best season/story arc of the old series and turned it into a mostly incoherent mess that miserably failed to live up to the high bar set by 2199 -- it had some interesting concepts and good points, but not enough to offset the bad and the missed opportunities. 2205 could have a chance to reinvigorate the franchise and redeem the mediocrity of 2202; then again...

    Yea, they have their thumbs up their asses on shipping these out. I'd be getting angry by now if I had paid for fast priority shipping, but since I was willing to wait, I'm willing to wait a little longer.

    Macross figures

    If only KC had make this figure adhere to Rick's body proportions at 1/12 scale, instead of Roy's, this would've been near perfect; as it is, it's too lanky.

  7. This movie appears to have only a tenuous and tangential relationship to the its comic book namesake. From the two trailers released thus far, it comes across, to me, as a psychological character study of one man's descent into purposeful madness. As such, it stands alone, grounded and disconnected from the DCU, and gets the benefit of not only being its own thing, but very interesting to boot.
  8. I don't have the Minmay as I didn't care for the outfit that KC chose. KC made Rick ~ 6.5" (16.5 cm) from foot sole to top of helmet when standing at attention; about the same with the hairpiece, for obvious reasons. With this size, at the claimed 1/12 scale, Rick Hunter, the little runt, would stand 78" (6.5 ft, 198.12 cm from head to toe... taller than Roy's 195 cm) instead of the 68.9", 5.74 ft, 175 cm called out in the bio. The toy should've been no taller than 5.75" (14.6 cm) at 1/12, so he is closer to 1/10.5 by height measurement alone. For comparison: Sentinel Stick is ~ 6.2" (15.75 cm), not in Ride Armor; so, boots collapsed. SH Figuarts Yuki Mori is ~ 5.8" (14.7 cm) Figma Motoko Kusanagi is ~ 5.5" (13.9 cm)
  9. Got the KC Rick Hunter 1/12 figure delivered today. He stands quite a bit taller than Sentinel's 1/12 Mospeada figures when you place them next to each other. Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised with the quality and execution of the piece; while it is not on the same level of excellence of a Figma figure, it is quite good is its own right and a fantastic rendition of the character; likely the best we will ever see at this size. Comes with a handgun and rifle, but the outstanding accessory is definitely the helmet. Now I can't wait for Lisa Hayes and any future releases, as I'm all in... Roy, Max, Miriya, and Minmay in Chinese dress at the very least.
  10. Assoalyal-ee-kool-prah-toh kahn kee boong, loopung chona lee pah. This Bounty Hunter is my kind of scum, fearless and inventive. Jabba the Hutt approves.
  11. Or a placeholder until some clever and talented enterprising member of this community comes up with a superior Shapeways replacement.
  12. It would also be a good idea to be adequately sauced before hitting play...
  13. Never underestimate the power of a fat payout dangled in front of a person's face to make one's convictions melt like a Popsicle on the sidewalk in mid August in Arizona.
