    Just got both Rey and Stig from BBTS. Haven’t transformed mine as I am dreading it after reading and watching the reviews online. But the figure and bike are very impressive. The level of detail is astounding. The ankle guards do pop of super easy so I’m thinking about applying a very small dot of crazy glue on the ball joint to increase the tension.
  2. Full Metal Panic! Action Figures

    To Kuma and for those that already have the metal build Laevatain, is it worth getting the v2 version or are you happy with the v1? I never liked the way that the v1 held that big cannon with its current articulation, which I believe may be fixed with v2. Just wondering what everyone's feeling out there.

    Thought I'd pipe in to say that I'm also waiting for my NY order to come in. Order #494335

    Scales well with the SOC Bossborot and Aphrodite A
  5. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Does anyone know of any online retailer that might still have the MB Astraea for preorder? Missed the P.O. window then didn’t jump on BBTS early enough.... <sad face>

    Got mine yesterday and opened it last night. Absolutely love it! The joints on my copy are super-tight, which is a plus for me. The only downside is the decrease in durability due to all the plastic moving panels. While it’s an engineering marvel in of itself, the moving panels won’t be as durable as your typical flat gokin surface area. Definitely a figure you don’t want to be ham-handed with. My two asks for Bandai in the future: articulated fingers and brighter paint on the eyes. Posted this on robotjapan board

    I have the Sentinel version and I love it. I also have the original GX-13 and while it's not as poseable as Sentinel's, the size and detailof its individual components make up for it. With Sentinel's Dancouga, the canons are articulated so you can point them down to shoulder level, vs Bandai's which doesn't articulate.

    Thanks! I was hoping for more poseability

    Does anyone know what improvements the v2 Dancouga Soc offers?

    OMG, I can't believe I got one! Got the confirmation email from amiami. My luck has finally turned
  11. The Third Party Gundam Thread

    Great review eggy99! Question about the figure: is the power cable optional? I don't intend to use the light up feature so I was hoping that you can do without the cable.
  12. Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    Not way excited about the updates in the F91's design either. The rails on the sides of the torso that allow the VSBR's to swing forward seem almost non-existent on the metal build, and the angled out chest grill needs to be flattened out as per the original design. The scary thing is that if they choose to go with the 1/100 scale that the metal build has been using, then this guy is going to be real small.

    Ah, so it's just a plain old missile. Darn, was hoping for a more exotic alien weapon Warrhead, i don't have the Kei version but I'm sure it has the same amount. I misspoke - I meant that there's a lack of locked positions, such as the wings not locking (or lack of detentes) in place nor the shoulder pads have a locked position when in gerwalk mode. I can only speak for the gerwalk version since I haven't transformed it into flyer nor tank, but the parts seem to only be held mostly by tension. Not a huge deal. The joints are tight enough, but there's a high likelihood of bumping something out of place when you handle the figure.
