  1. It's nice to have an "All things video games" thread, but recently it seems to be about "video game news" than anything else, so I propose starting a discussion on the stuff we all grew up with and get nostalgic pangs for every so often now. I'll start by explaining that I had hardly played any video games for probably over a decade until I bought a PSP when Macross Ace Frontier came out. MAF was fun and everything, but it was the old school emulators that got me hooked again. Back in the day I had a Super NES and Gameboy, and I believed they were the greatest things on the planet. Going t
  2. Back in the pre-Hasegawa days, this was the best kit you're going to find of a 1/72 VF-1 Valkyrie. And now, thanks to Hasegawa, you can find these for a steal. Seriously, if you're paying more than ¥3500 for this now, you're getting ripped off. Only decals are the kites, skulls, and other miscellaneous markings. Everything else painted.
  3. Hey, help! I recently got one of mid-sized Mospeada Legioss toys - the one with metal toes - but it's missing its right removable wing, and the back cover that's shaped like folded wings. Does anyone have those parts to spare? Either in red or another color? It's a nice little toy, so I'm trying to restore it. I've got various 80s bits & parts to trade as well. Here's the birdie:

    Matchbox Glaug

    Unaltered version of earlier post, my annual first-snow-day toy photo: my Playmates edition of the Matchbox Robotech Glaug.

  5. From the album: My Macross Collection

    "Botoru Battalion" Nosjadeul Ger, which is a color variation of the toy that Matchbox did to represent the Quaedluun Rau. But their other "Quadrano Battalion" colorway was the SDFM colorway for the male armors. Confusing, but it's a nice toy if you can pick it up for $20 or less. And by 'toy', I do mean 'toy': colorful, imaginative, sturdy, but not a collector model concerned with slavish attention to its source material. The box photos don't do the toy justice, unfortunately. I'd have probably bought one in the 80s if the prototype model didn't look so shabby and the box art (in this in

    A little Photoshop fun with my Playmates/Matchbox Glaug, after a snowy day...

    A "Holy Grail" question finally achieved! GBP-1S set fitted up to a Bandai reissue VF-1J. Seems to fit fine.

    Takatoku VF-1S

    From the album: My Macross Collection

    Something of a 'holy grail' piece for me. Worn box and a bit aged, missing the missiles. But used decals perfect for scanning, clean body in excellent shape, and all paperwork. Just a little work needed.

  10. This kit didn't go together very smoothly - despite starting to lay down paint still on the sprue! For starters, the kit is molded in dark blue, and any light colours on top of that required multiple coats. I ended up losing some of the finer details due to that. The upper arms are extremely fiddly. I ended up having to permanently glue the upper arms, as the pieces kept popping apart when the elbow joint was rotated! Some of the other joints are stiff, but that might be due to the aforementioned paint problem. I ended up using super glue to affix the thrusters on the back of the legs an
  11. Could someone please kindly provide me with a good scan of the decal sheets from Takatoku's 1/55 Max VF-1J? I recently picked up one I'm restoring, and it only has the 'factory applied' decals. I'm trying to determine what I need to replicate myself, and what I can repurpose from other Yamato & Bandai decal sheets I have around. Thanks!
  12. So, how does this look as a possibility? Anyone interested in a custom head based on this, cast in resin? This is just a very basic dryfit on a Bandai reissue DYRL 1/55 VF-1A. The head actually comes from this plastic SD-series kit: Thoughts, anyone? While it's SD, I think it has the style of interpretation seen in the other superchunk 1/55 heads. It would look right at home on those big square shoulders...

    SD Valk Head Dryfit 1

    From the album: Custom DYRL 1A 1/55 Head Project

    A closer shot of the dryfit of Bandai SD Super Max VF-1A SD kit's head to reissue Hikaru Bandai 1/55 DYRL VF-1A (which I obtained minus its original head, fitted with an old Jetfire head instead), to check scale & style. Looks in-scale, and the big SD-style eye doesn't look out of place on the big, blocky 1/55 body design.
