  1. The facepalming chunky Roy at the bottom really elevates this pic to the next level! Also, is Roy the only American in this pic? What country is Max from?
  2. Daggone, worst pre-order ever, this is the first time I've failed one. Me and the wife had six sites open on two devices, Ami Ami froze, got cartjacked at Amazon.jp, and the other four failed. I literally watched Rakuten instantly go from no order button to sold out between my ~2 second interval refresh clicks. Should have tried Yodobashi, forgot about that one. However, got a small lead on reserving an in-store copy via phone on 1 November... If anyone's interested in my previous (relevant) GIF contribution to this thread, go to my profile and look at my post from June 4, 2019, you won't be disappointed. Was this the first DX since Hikaru's J that had heavy advertising by Bandai? Cant remember if Max A or Hikaru S had that.
  3. Threw some 1/48 GBU-12s on with blu-tack. More pics on the twitter: https://twitter.com/Aimd_SA/status/1211629156217188352
  4. Tail modex, white landing gear, ejection triangle, panel lines(?), anything else on this one? (looks fantastic BTW, great job!!)

    Hi-Metal R

    Holy crap Loli, that looks awesome! Nice job on all those tiny 'no step's. I'm guessing you're leaving the battroid top chestpiece 'unlocked' in order to not scratch something below? If so, good to know if I ever to get around to customizing one myself...

    Hi-Metal R

    Question for everyone: When you envision the VF-4 firing it's forearm guns, do you see it as 1. Megatron style or 2. Iron man style I have to admit, Iron man style is growing on me...
  7. Based on the forward curves of the belly plates, fighter mode might be Chunky. Articulation looks excellent.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Anyone else have this problem with Arad's.... "temple sensors"? They keep popping off during transformation. I've glued these things back on three times now, doesn't seem to work very much.
  10. Glad I'm not the only one who has always thought this. My headcanon is as follows: SDFM TV is what actually went down, with some caveats here and there. UUM-7 pods (which never appeared in the show) may or may not have been around, but if they were, they were certainly space-only. DYRL is an in-universe movie made by hollywood types (using late-production VFs) and as such is full of historical inaccuracies like in-atmo UUM-7 pods. Though, if the UUM-7 pod is space-only, maybe it could get by with short pylons, since the flaps wouldn't need to be extended in space? Yup, they do this frequently, such as the Hi-metal R M&M release with the new, off white accents. I actually liked that one though.
  11. Not sure if you know that the hi-metal R VF-1D comes with a tiny Minmay and a specific left hand to hold her. Not the scale you seem to be going for, but just in case you hadn't heard.
  12. OK guys, here's the first GIF i've ever made, it's not complete as my skills are at their end: "sometimes, it be like that" PartialPlumpAfricanrockpython.webm It didn't come out as good as I thought it would, but oh well. If any GIF wizards feel like they want to help complete it, please use the below images, on the chests of the three and also the gate can have HLJ on it:
  13. OK guys, please forgive the impromptu setup and bad photo skills, but I just had to share this: After all this time, I finally obtained a sort-of holy grail, Alto's Renewal supers! Came across them in a Hiroshima book off for 16,000 yen, the previous owner had done a pretty good panel line job too. 3 Super dudes, plus an armored dude! You will note I'm using my headcanon parts-wearing scheme, which consists of 3 differences: 1. I don't use crotch armor, it's not perfect TF and doesn't even look that good IMHO. Only reason I used it on the armored 25A is due to it being mandatory with the stand adapter. 2. I don't use hip laser armor for supers, it doesn't look like it adds anything, and it looks like it blocks the hip lasers from firing anyway, armored parts ver does not. 3. Most importantly, I use 'Concept art style' collarbone missile pod placement on the shoulders, where I believe it looks best. Especially on armored parts where it looks like the GBP. Now that I have alto's white collarbone skin panels, I can finally do a proper 'Episode 14 special' where Alto wore Mike's blue supers. Never been too interested in any radome valk...
  14. My good sir, it appears we can become great friends after all! I actually lol'd. We're of the same mind here. Sorry, I wasn't trying to say the VF-1 wasn't used by the UNAF. I think of it like the F-4 phantom: Designed for carriers first, then used by all three services with minimal modifications. Cheers! Just wanted to hammer out this quick reply, more to follow.
