I'm a RTFM kinda guy. ;)

But if memory serves me correctly, there's one scary as hell step where you separate the crotch guard from the rest of the bike.  I forget if you try to separate it from the top or from the bottom.  But that's the one step I remember being difficult and worrisome.

It also helps that a lot of parts are ball-and-socket joints that you can pop back into place. 

Actually, popping off the front suspension struts from their connection socket does open up some posing options for the forearm armors.

Could you show how you have the stands holding the ride armor from behind? I am not feeling confident in the stand and mine kept trying to drunk dive.

It's a bit of a balancing act.

In case it's not clear (the instructions don't say anything about the stand) you remove the claw and shove the peg into a hole on the bike. It's a tight fit.

you know what's strange? i've never seen Yellow use the blades ever in the cartoon.

 

Because that would have been the last episode. All bad guys dead. Day won.

Yellow didnt use them because his missiles were so destructive; he didn't need them. But Lancer used them in the (badname) Invasion comic.

Using classical "pull it out of your butt" logic:  I will assume that they were ineffective against Inbit armor; just as most of the ride armor weapons were.  Aim for the eye with a dagger is way risky.

i kept rewatching my vhs tapes and thought i missed the episode.

In MOSPEADA: The VR-41h is still in use for special forces; but for general use was replaced by the VR-52.

I see many of you have received your Yellow orders.  Thought I better check on mine.  I placed my order with BigBadToyStore back in April and I've not seen any shipping notice or anything.  I logged into my account there and see it listed as a pre-order with "Estimated Arrival: December 2019".  Has anyone with an order from BBTS received theirs yet?  Trying to determine if I should be worried or not.  I'm guessing no as I think most of the ones posted were shipments direct from Japan but thought I should verify.  If that is the case, any educated guesses as to when BBTS will start making shipments?

You shouldn't be worried at all, BBTS probably won't get theirs for a few weeks. They need to import from Japan, then ship out... And they don't use EMS to import.

Yeah BBTS is solid and rarely has problems but with that they are usually the last major e-retailer to get their stock. I use them often unless I’m impatient which then I cancel my order and go elsewhere

Spotted this model for 3D printing thought it was interesting.

The Legioss isn't great... but it's a damn sight better than that ride armor.  :unsure:

Let the retrofitting commence!  :aggressive:

1226390077_repaintedhelmet.thumb.jpg.9bd0b478056c21d3a4fd059363135c32.jpg

First I needed to repaint that visor, to conceal those ugly lines inscribed on the interior.  I didn't have any clear green on hand, so I just sprayed clear blue over a metallic gold base...  Different paint, same result.  ^_^

retrofitting.thumb.jpg.b09158cccc675714e986ab88f268b1f5.jpg

Then I started to replace components on the cowling with more familiar Mospeada elements (like the amber windscreen, taken from the vintage model kit).  The micro-missile covers were removed, sanded flat, repainted, and then reattached to the front.

Substantial disassembly will be required before further progress can be made.

BBTS does not get receive import releases until three to four weeks after the overseas release.  I've told plenty of other people unless it's a domestic release you will have to wait if you've pre-ordered from BBTS.  You won't hear anything about it until January.

That's messed up! I figured a week to two behind at most.

Would it have been too much for Sentinel to make the fabric lighter?

Currently in the middle of printing out the "pilot" or driver figure with my newest "toy", an AnyCubic i3 Mega printer.

Then I gotta print out the cycle.

I also bought MaxLab's (the stl file creator's) Legioss model so that will come at some point too.

UPDATE: I created the following topic to track files that we might find online that others on these forums might be interested in.  If you know of some or perhaps some that you'd like to share maybe you can add them to:

Well I did the return/replace with AmazonJapan and it's been surprisingly easy.  They've already shipped the new one and I print out some labels and drop the old thing back off at DHL by January 1st.  Pretty simple.

They are finally offering prepaid labels?? Last thing I had to exchange was MP-44 and had to fight them to be able to ship it USPS because DHL wanted $200+ to send it back.

Actually, I'm not sure if this is prepaid.  I'd better go take a look.

Well the label is weird but it does have the Bill To listed as Amazon in Japan.
