Are you planning the put the Armoured Parts for Alto's 171EX on Luca's RVF-171EX @Shizuka the Cat

Make sure that you save up for your actual wedding too! It's not getting cheap anymore (the last article did read about planning the wedding banquet only is close to 40k USD).

I got it for Luca's RVF-171... since, as far as I am aware, no armored parts were actually ever officially released for Luca's 171.

You are correct, and I can confirm from personal experience that the RVF-171 looks good with supers on.

It doesn't come with the right wings, but the RVF-171 itself comes with separate hardpoint wings (unlike every other -171 except the Maruyama w/ supers box).

Those alien figures look awesome!  Kane with face hugger FTW!  I would love to see Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon in the reaction line.

It's well worth the money. Takes a bit to get in the full configuration mode, but I highly recommend it!

I caved in and bought the Sh Figuarts Far From Home Tech Suit because I’m a sucker for Spider-Man figures and I’m so glad I did.  This is hands-down Bandai’s best attempt at a Spider-Man figure (and so much fricking better than their other three POS’es) and it’s risen to my top three Spider-Man figures ever.  It’s a lot of fun.

The simulator shipment came in two parts which the transport company managed to send one package to another state ffs... Finally got everything yesterday and got it all built up!

Apart from a few minor build and design flaw issues which I was able to sort out easy enough, I couldn't be happier!

How many Valks again in your collection that you sold, @spanner? ^_^ 

Anyways, that's an awesome setup, my friend. How much you charge for each game? :rolleyes:

Man, I wish I had a setup like that, but for flight sims.

I will be making a bracket to secure the throttle to the left side of the seat frame and another bracket to hold the stick. I was told that they will be making a flight sim accessory for this rig which is coming in the next few months. I'll suss it out when they release it and see if it'll work for me. I set this one up primarily for driving as it's what I use it for most but I also fly.

Yes you certainly do! The stick is to the right of the pc and the rudder pedals are on the lower shelf.

Yeah I figured I'd set it up that way as it's how we drive here in Aus and it makes room between the rig and pc table.

Just got and opened another one of these things. Easily one of the best deals in toys today. Such great detail and quality for about the price of a Hasbro action figure.

Sweet! I don’t have the problem you mentioned with any of my stands but sounds like a job for Future (or any other acrylic based polish)

By the way, vol. 34 will be a Tornado. I will most likely pass as I really can’t get too deep into this.

So this happened...694536273_BBTStamashii.thumb.jpg.c6fbd9339ceb94e56a08f278d1a1a045.jpg

Before...143741729_HMRsegment.thumb.jpg.cd034ca42b5e0e9d95c853b52c1fb1ee.jpg

After...1529777997_macrossjam2.thumb.jpg.3471ae1485fb63900ed0f4a7881ce3d5.jpg

I think it cleans it up really well. Plus it allows me to use more of the vertical space in my detolf. I used double extensions on Miria and the VF-2SS, and while it considerable increases their height, it sort of feels kind of wobbly. In any case, for the price, I think clear stands are great, affordable and clean looking. https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/87713

10 bucks per pair @ BBTS. I think all clear is better. I'll keep Max & Miria's colored stands for individual displaying. I wonder if i should keep the smoked ones or not. 

WOW @spanner, that's an awesome set up. One of these days, I'll take a pic of a racing set up I built with a friend some years ago. It's nothing compared to yours, but it works!

I just got the VF-31 Cat yesterday, Black Lions one is on the way soon, so I'm up to four F-14s, an A-6, and F-4, all classic Navy.  I'd love to see them expand into some older designs too, and would happily snap up any A-4s, A-7s, F-8s, even going back to the F4D, F11F, Banshee, Panther, Cougar, or pretty much anything else you could find on a carrier in the 50s-80s.  A Vigilante would be a must buy. ^_^ 

One thing I am curious about though.. has anyone managed to pop the phoenix mounts off the underside of an F-14?  I always preferred look of a clean underside, but I think think every version of these has those belly pylons glued on.

Nice! I stick with clear for my main HMR display too. I would keep the others you have around because stands are always handy. Extending the height is definitely nice, you just have to balance it well and be careful. I had a hell of a time with my setup and took a while before I could get everything placed the way I wanted without knocking something else down. I can say, HMR are very well made...I dropped a few figures several times and some from pretty high up onto hard floors and no issues other than collecting the pieces that fell off.

Nice to see a bunch of us are building up a collection of these things. I'm limiting myself to F-14s and A-10s for now and if I can get some of the new stuff (F-22, F-35) and some Migs/Sus, I'd go for those. If they make F-86s though, I'd be all in.

Yeap @Slave IV, it took me a few hours to get them right, and balanced. That was play time for me! Oh, and i have a few new ideas too! [coming up soon]

Kinda wishing I'd bought a few more of those Tamashii stands when HLJ had them on sale. Mine haven't shown up in the mail yet, let them sit in PW for a while.
