  1. I figured out why bandai's super parts design hold the gunpod at such a wonky angle. They made the gunpod extra thicc first, without thinking about super parts fighter mode with the landing gear out. If they had given the DX "normal" arm units with a straight gunpod mount, the extra large DX gunpod would impact the ground, and the super valkyrie would be unable to sit on its landing gear. Keep in mind, I'm not defending bandai here at all. It was a dumb decision that I disagree with. Just another tiny nitpick that prevents me from declaring the DX the "ultimate" VF-1 toy over the Yamc
  2. Man, I've been absolutely giddy for the past 24 hours. Filoni and Favreau have given us the best star wars Christmas present we could have possibly gotten this year. Makes me hopeful we will eventually get disney to split the timelines in something similar to this: (since they will probably never actually decanonize the ST) EU timeline, Filoni timeline, and Kennedy timeline, all with equal canon status, with George's 6 movies being the core of all three. Do it already, disney! It'll let you print more money!
  3. I'm a lucky guy, surprise early xmas present from my japanese father-in-law! 26 boxes of hatchette, with more on the way. Shame I can't really dig into these for a few months due to space / moving...
  4. I'm a simple man, I see valks customised after USN / USMC squadrons and I upvote. Great work! Can I ask what your old man did in the RAG?
  5. Re: Bandai's tail modex fiasco. It's times like these I'm glad I only collect SDF TV and not DYRL...
  6. Hold up, is calibre wings now free of HG's vile tentacles and partnering with Big West?? If not, can't Big West stop them from selling Macross Zero merch? Interesting, they put a GU-11 on what looks like the centerline. (tankbusting, I guess?) Still wish these things had proper AIM-9 / 54 paint schemes.
  7. 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?
  8. 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 w
  9. Threw some 1/48 GBU-12s on with blu-tack. More pics on the twitter: https://twitter.com/Aimd_SA/status/1211629156217188352
  10. Tail modex, white landing gear, ejection triangle, panel lines(?), anything else on this one? (looks fantastic BTW, great job!!)

    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...

    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...
  13. Based on the forward curves of the belly plates, fighter mode might be Chunky. Articulation looks excellent.

    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.
