Anybody know the story behind these:

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1075119044&ref=list

It looks like TakaraTomy made parts available (mail order? at stores?) to make some sort of change to the Strike Dog Actic Gear toy.

I saw it before and thought I was just somebody selling the AGV18's Strikedog separately.

Oh damn, they did that parachute Justice... Too bad the toy doesn't handle well, it sure is pretty.

Wow.  I guess people are still buying this.  Maybe the QC issues are isolated cases?

Doubt they were isolated cases.

Their original is currently at US$380 right now at amzn-us.  Thought I saw it dipped under $350 or less last week.

I need to update my post with an epic arm failure pic of the 3zero when I have a moment. It's gorgeous and well engineered but they need to pay way better attention to materials. It's relegated to a delicately handled display piece that may still require maintenance.

Scaling is fine

Communication requires a common vocabulary; we have to agree on what words mean.  Either you're confused as to the concept of "scale," or you confused as to the meaning of "fine."

Ah, just as I figured.  You have no concept of "scale."  <_<

Simmer down Tekering. How tall is an Atlas? I assume it's much larger than a Scopedog in the Votoms universe.

I'm using the weight-scale from the Battletech-universe to display the UnSeen mechs.  I even put out the links on it.

You are aware of the Battletech universe, right?

The last pic with the SOC and SDF-1 was just an amalgamated display thing that I thought looks nice enough before I move the items somewhere else in my house.

See, this is what I meant by "a common vocabulary."  In Votoms, the mechs (including their cockpits) are clearly Seen:

I don't even know what "weight-scale" is, but it obviously doesn't apply to the Scopedog.

It turns out we won't be able to communicate after all.  :(

It is definitely much larger than the Scopedog in Votoms.

edit: OT, but here's something that could give you an idea regarding the height: https://youtu.be/OJZnejcp-qo

:sigh:

Not really sure why you're arguing "scale" when you clearly have no idea the reason for my pic in the first place.

It's quite ok to admit to not know about Battletech. Only a few of us here are familiar with it, and we prolly don't even agree on stuff about it.

I tell you what.

Why don't you just post your own Votoms toys/kits instead of trying to argue over the internet?

Much more fun to just post pics and stuff.

Some Deformed Votoms figures displayed at C3AFA HK2018 over at B2Five's Booth. Looks like the toys are doing some kind of cross-over with their Acid Rain line.

Not sure if I'll be interested enough to get them, but they do look nicer than Bandai's upcoming 1/60s.

Anyway, waiting on the Bloodsucker ATs makes my TCs  chase Gnaw around for the time being...

Nice stuff!  Tho their Fyana seems to went amok with the donuts.

Looks and performs alot better than the upcoming Bandai 1/60 gashapons or whatever that'll actually be.

Good that some other companies are still developing stuff for the VOTOMS series.

Hope GSC decides to do Nendoroid ATs and characters to compete with this line...

I spent some time today updating my Yamato 1/12 review.... trying to make it more of a Wiki as well as a review. Got pictures of the boxes up and the contents, etc. I've also started doing something that I hope people will find helpful. I've started putting complete scans of the instruction manuals into the review.

In case anyone was like me and put off getting the wave berserga desert type until the ps version came out, the preorder is up finally. Seriously how much trouble is it to at least add a chair and pilot. So like the other ps versions this has the downform joints a seat and pilot, in this case  sitting Fyana.

Still hoping Arcadia re-start their 1/12 VOTOMS line so I don't have to keep seeing an old Yammie parts-set being ludicrously scalped at 18k-yen and up...

Anyone have an extra agV20? I thought I had one pre-ordered but I was wrong. 

I think Arcadia should do a line of 1/24 action figures and then resurrect the votoms license in that scale. It would jive with their Megazone toys and they could do Macross stuff, maybe patlabor also...

Ooh neat, I was able to track down an AG-v20 but I haven't opened it up yet... come to think of it, I haven't opened my 35Max yet either... not time for Votoms :(

I got my bloodsuckers also, but I ran out of time to assemble the scopedog turbo that was included. It was nice that they included the damage parts and ypsillon. The parts around the sides of the head were a bit loose, so I glued them on.
