I’m hoping those joints are made of metal or some durable POM(?) plastic.

More important though, I really hope that whole shoulder assembly can hold a pose and not get floppy over time.

Well the Evolution Toys Legioss has a similar shoulder joint, it's metal and ratcheted, and despite ET's not so great build quality it holds poses and so far no breakages.

I guess if Sentinel chooses the right materials and the joint has the right tolerances, it should be fine.

Like I said, “minor” concern. ;)

More pressing, I do hope they can:

1). Improve the gap behind the bomber cockpit (and probably come up with a way to integrate in the Armo-Soldier chestplate with it too).

2). Minimize the gaps between the two main boosters and the central array (and likewise, minimize the gap between the thighs and center fuselage in bomber mode);

3). Incorporate the shoulder missile hatches that CM’s has;

4).  Have the Legioss lock in place securely and have the overall fighter combo look good; and

5).  Find a way to attach the Gatling gun in bomber and in fighter combo mode.

I wonder how many design liberties Sentinel will take with the Tread. Their Legioss is nice, but not 100% accurate.

Well, it's a relatively "simple" transformation process, not too many ways for the Tread's arms and legs to transform.

The proverbial devil will be in the features, accessories, Legioss connection mechanisms, added articulation, and little details they'll work in.

As many liberties as it takes to make it cool.

Their Legioss is not based off of the original animation lineart.  In terms of the alternative artwork it is based off of it's accurate.

Can you guys recommend me a few asian etailers that you would recommend for best price to get the Riobot Bike and Jet.  I will only likely get the Red Zeta and Fuke (red Bike) eventually when they go up for preorder or after release in 2020 or 2021.

And have you seen the insane aftermarket prices on Amazon.jp?  You can't get an Evolution Toy Zeta for under ¥200,000!  :shok:

the red one is so nice to look at.  its ok to handle too.  i'm gonna go out on a limb and say they are a tiny bit underrated by those here.  i had an extra red one and kinda regret selling it (at very small profit) last year.  anyway excited to see and handle the sentinel version.  hopefully its a great toy.  the evolution toys ones have a nice sculpt and more shelf presence than any other legioss.  when i post them to IG they seem to do well in getting likes.  lol  i'm really looking forward to the new transformation changes on the sentinel though.

Considering selling the dark ET Legioss.

Sellers on Yahoo! Japan Auctions can't move the Dark Legioss for even half of their retail price...  There's just no demand for 'em.  :unsure:

With sentinel teasing a much better, albeit much smaller, product, it's no wonder. I love the Dark Legioss design and would love to army build, but I will definitely wait for Sentinel.

One of the reason i am actually considering the Riobot Zeta is the small size.  Same with wanting the Fuke Bike armor.  The size works great for me.  I also just got Riobot's Iron Giant and he is a true gem that can be displayed anywhere or brought anywhere really.

If the Blue Sentinel is good quality, even just for the batroid mode, i will save up for the Red Zeta one.  My first Alpha was the green one when i was a child, and later on got the Toynami green one, but i am really like the red and details on the Sentinel Zeta one,  and thinking i will go red this time.  Wont be able to afford a second one with the super high price these go for... so gonna save it for Red Bike and Jet.

I think the much smaller scale also lends itself better to owning more than just one while simultaneously making the Tread a possibility. So yeah, I'm happy on pretty much all fronts and bummed I own four ET Legioss toys that are already worth half what I paid for them. It's just like the CM's Legioss toys all over again.

Hi everyone,

I share this I did:

They are the monitor screen of the Mospeada riobot.

I leave the file in .ai format, 10x10cm document size CMYK. Ready to print on sticker paper.

PS: I had to simplify several parts, because the screen is too small.
I did some tests with my epson printer and it works pretty well.

Enjoy it!
Thank you

Thanks for sharing your work, Perxion!  :hi:

Is there a reason you spelled "fuel" with 2 L's?

Oops, sorry for that
It is easy to edit the file. Just delete the last "L"

However, it is not read when printed. :D

Thank you Pineapple Eater for reporting it.

Holy smokes! You guys weren't kidding. The Legioss/Tread is HUGE! I definitely don't need two of these. I take back everything I said about the Evolution Legioss being too small.

Time to get the 1/10 Ride Armors on a YetiStand. I made some adapters. Now to fiddle with them a bit.

Give it time, you'll eventually want the Red & Green Alpha's plus Betas. B))

Quality issues aside, the MPC Alpha and Beta still look good together :wub:.  Every now and then I look at my toy shelf and sigh winsomely as I gaze upon them.

Must......resist:rofl:

I'm actually getting to a good point of forced regulation. I don't have much room left to display stuff the way I like to display it. I've slowed way down and even sold a few things that don't excite me a lot. I think I'm "safe" until I get a bigger house. Which won't be for at least 3-4yrs. Then all bets are off.;)

Right now I'm only on the look out for a few things:

-Yamato 1/48 Stealth S&S parts x2

-Yamato 1/48 Low Vis x1

-A good Chunky Monkey VF-1S Roy with Supers. Maybe x2.

-DX YF-19 Full Set for a reasonable price.

 

Anxiously awaiting:

DX Roy

DX 21

Nice display. I'm completely out of room and I have way too much to display. I need a bigger house so I can get another display case.

Curious to see your adapters for the ride armors on the alpha. Surprised they're aren't any already from @ChaoticYeti. 

I need some alpha stands for my ride armors

Nice work! Are you selling those adapters? These work on the sentinel ride armors?
