  1. I want to want this, but i dont want to pay for it. Anyone else find the GBP turns you off a bit cause its so unposable (in previous incarnations)?? Maybe I'm alone in that. If i had the $350 or $400 to get the whole set i might do it.. Why am I Even posting this? It looks cool, honestly. I'm just getting cheap.
  2. Ah yea see my memory is filling in things not there! Trying to subconsciously make excuses for Bandai I guess
  3. Sheesh so complicated. It's been uh.. only a month.. since I rewatched the first 8 eps.. Hikaru has no un spacy helmet in the opening scenes, that weird thing around his head with goggles instead.. Then he gets in the VF-1D and amazingly there's a nice helmet in there the color of his future uniform... I suspect the toy just comes with one Hikaru figure so that's why the helmet. He DOES get back in the fan racer, with Minmei after the VF-1Debacle... WITH helmet, And the space fold happens and he has the helmet when they get caught in the lost part of the SDF-1.. so I guess I w
  4. Why is Hikaru Wearing his UN Spacy Helmet in the Fan Racer?!?!?!
  5. OMG Second that! I got an item in on my HLJ private warehouse yesterday, and the shipping options were all over $22.. on a $35 kit. Not HLJ's fault but this pandemic hurts.
  6. Are These new ones going to be relatively inexpensive? I aspire to someday build one of Capt. Americas kits, but I have done only one resin kit so far. and while happy with the results resin is still very challenging. Also I would not want to 'play' with resin for fear I would flake the paint off by looking at it sideways.
  7. Thats gorgeous! however for my project I need a smaller figure if that is as how it looks in the photo. The legs look way too long and to result in a very stylized version of the Bartley/Hoquet... to match and sit right next to my Yellow/Blowsperior I need a smaller, more human proportion fig. I an contemplating the bandai gundam fumina hoshino kit, but I am waiting for someone to get back to me about its exact height. Don't want to get it only to find it too tall ane end up building a weird 'waifu' kit (to each there own but im not into it. esp considering those are sposed to be high school
  8. The fun ones is I have the Bartley in 1/15 too and I have no idea what kind of figure to source for it!
  9. Not sure if this should go here or the plastic model posts, since it's Mospeada and not Macross.. Will happily move if it's the wrong spot. So I'm doing this thing with a 1/15 aoshima Yellow ride armor kit. I got one of those Star wars non-scale Finn figures to be a donor body. Because it's body was roughly 1/15th even though it had a giant head. Doing some work with epoxy putty to create proper shoulders and upper leg armor. That whole squarish middle place between the arms is going to be hidden, so it's not especially pretty. Progress coming along..
  10. Could KIND of go decently with 1/24 ort 1/25 model cars.
  11. Someone call for me?
  12. It's backward in the line art
  13. I get mails from Amazon Japan about my order from time to time. I can use it as a way to mark the passing of time.. daughter starts high school.. daughter goes to college.. etc.
  14. Good point. and whats worse is I have 2 of them and forgot!
  15. I'm waiting for this too. It's also got a different head than the TV VF-1A (and i like the movie version better) Regarding that photo. I was just thinking the other day one really cool thing they Have not done in any VF-1 toy yet is to make the nosecone rock forward so you'd have the dynamic 'crotch thrust' hahah
  16. Now that you mentioned it I am going to have to paint my beagle stick figure cuz he yellowed like crazy just the white plastic though. I took him apart took pictures of the whole disassembly and put the pieces in numbered bags I had forgot I'd have to paint that until this conversation
  17. I airbrush a lot, but no way am i repainting a $200-250 toy
  18. Repost of a screencap i posted in August:... No way the armor and Legioss are the same color.. at least in that scene of that episode (16)
  19. If it's not Day-glo, highlighter pink, I'll be happy
  20. The shoulders are tight. The wing still falls off. Everything feels a little tighter than my Blue Eta, I don't know if that's intentional or just cause the new ones only been transformed once.
  21. On the bright side. I posed her to put in the cockpit and not a single limb fell off!!
  22. SECOND! (People always post FIRST right?) here are the pics that answer the questions I cared about. You can have the antenna going backwards. She really is fluorescent pink
  23. OMFG Out for delivery FedEx.. Could still get delayed til Monday (weather, bored driver), but I'm feeling like a kid on Christmas
  24. I really hope so too, but it seems strange they'd do it 'wrong' in all the pics. If this wasn't a $250 toy I'd feel a lot better about lengthening the slot myself. As it is I probably wouldn't. Anyone else have to do work on their Sentinel Legioss Eta yet? 2 days ago I finally superglued (VERY CAREFULLY) the back flap of the wing on because it had fallen off. looks like when they glued it there was paint on the spot they glued, so that was bound to come off eventually. Gluing over paint is generally a no-go (I don't post them cause mostly Gundam but I do a lot of model kits) I was VER
  25. I'm really hoping they did something between the prototypes and now so that the head 'antenna' can go backwards in Aircraft mode instead of forward. that looks weird, and doesnt match the lineart, IMHO.
