  1. Very cool, Fifbeat! Congrats on seeing your collection to completion after all this time. I had a small army of the Orgroids, an Olson, Nikick, Ovelon Gazzette, and SDF-1 back in the day. The Ovelon and SDF-1 were the boxed KO's which Glane posted previously (the silver/white box versions), and I think I remember picking them up at a mall department store circa 1985. The SDF-1 had yellow booms with blue arms, and it was always an object of some lament for me that not only could you not put the booms on in the correct orientation in cruiser mode, but that they were the wrong color to boot
  2. These are super cool, really enjoyed seeing them. The cartoon sequences are hilarious and I really dig the SD "lineart"

    1/55's revisited

    Are there (m)any differences in the foam trays and inserts between the Takatoku/Matsushiro/Bandai valk releases? For instance, was the tray altered for the snub-nosed valks, or was it continued as originally sculpted for the Takatokus?
  4. Just watched your Remastered OP and really loved it. Wonderful artwork and animation, and the use of cover versions of the original songs performed by your friends is just awesome. 10/10 Thank you for your efforts, and for sharing them with us!
  5. Great stuff as always, JVM. Thanks for taking the time to document and share all of these booklets! I love and adore all of the wonderful Toshio Suzuki artwork which adorned many of the IMAI and ARII boxes. I used to collect the ARII 1/100 kit line, and it's interesting to note that what is labeled as a VF-1C head in the lineart in booklet #0 is what ARII actually molded and supplied in their early VF-1D fighter mode and two-mode kits, and bears a strong resemblance to Kawamori's pre-production VF-1D head. Not so surprising, that, but it is somewhat interesting to see it labeled as a "C"
  6. Disclaimer: I don't own a Sentinel Legioss, so this may not apply due to possible peculiarities in its transformation. From my ownership of the Toynami Legioii I learned to basically transform everything else (bicep/forearm collapse, tailfins, etc) prior to stowing the hands. When everything else is already in place it only became necessary to pose the fingers such that they could fit into the hand cavity in the forearm and be able to close the arm cover without resistance. Never had a broken hand on any of the Toynamis while following that procedure, even though those hands were notorious for
  7. No Way Dude! Face the Music was most excellent and I enjoyed it very much. I went in with low expectations but an open mind, and what I found was an unexpectedly funny film with great feel-good ambience, which recalls why I loved the original. No, it's probably not as good as the original, but if you find yourself making up reasons to be upset about a freaking Bill & Ted movie I suspect that you may have missed the point. It's all about irreverent, goofy fun. Don't try to look any deeper than that. Highlights for me were how awesomely Keanu and Alex played their d*ckwad future-us's (&
  8. WRT a Sentinal Tread, I think a partsforming boom coupled with a fold down panel that integrates into the gap at the back of the Legioss' calves could result in a pretty secure connection. Make the calve lock panel do double duty as part of the Tread's cockpit transformation. I'd love to see a functional origami connection boom, but agree that it's not very likely considering the space available in the Tread's undercarriage.
  9. Still have this if anybody is interested -- I'd guess there's probably not a lot of vintage interest around MW these days, but it is a neat piece of a bygone era.
  10. Hey Noel, the 1/60 Nikicks are only two-mode, so just Battroid/Gerwalk. The 1/40s are three mode though. @Convectuoso I do love me some bean gun action too.
  11. This is a vintage Takatoku/Matsushiro KO of the 1/60 Gerwalk Nikick from Orguss. It's a very cool piece with unusual packaging and is the last remnant of my former Takatoku collection. Box shows wear commensurate with age but the toy is in good, complete condition. Includes gun, missiles and hands. Paypal accepted, and I am on the SSL. $45.00 Shipped in the lower 48, Continental US.
  12. When I had my MPC Alphas I treated them very gingerly, knowing that they were fragile and not especially well built. I had a couple of the glued pieces on one or two of them come loose, but fortunately never broke anything. When I sold them (I had one of each of the original releases), the buyer of my green Legioss reported that one of the shoulders had arrived broken... the shoulder actually broke all by itself while in its packaging, double-boxed and heavily bubble wrapped, during shipment. The original construction materials just weren't very good, and became even less good as time went on.
