you guys with the Masei helmets, they make a blue bubble shaped visor that looks more like the animation. you have to shave the inside edge of the visor a little, but I think it really brings the extra out of it. I copied someone on MW who did it, but it's a nice thing, and posted a long time ago, so I'll repost it

That does look excellent! I saw they had different color visors but didn't realize they had this different shape too. Damn, I just might have to...

On another note, just got some more Diaclone and aw hell! What in the world have I gotten myself into?

For anyone else wanting to know, these bubble shields are "vintage" style shields, easily found on ebay. You will have to shave the inside of your helmet to make them fit. Specifically the area near your cheek, the bubble is just slightly too big to put it back on. I'm pretty sure someone here did a write up a while ago.

Ah, I thought you meant in your previous post that you need to shave part of the clear shield, not the helmet. That’s a dealbreaker for me because I’m not shaving anything off the helmet. Looks awesome though.

So, if you’ve read other comments on it, some people aren’t happy with a few things about it. To me, it came out better than expected and it’s hard to compare with it’s looks since it looks so good so based on that I’d say it feels slightly less good than it looks. The only complaint that I’m not even complaining about on mine is it has very tight shoulders but I know that is an easy fix. Transformation and articulation are all really good.

Before the chaos ensues, I just got these grails today both weathered, both new/unused.  Never thought I'd find the SSP weathered with such a limited run.

The 0D's came out of their boxes a few days ago. I've had the 0S/Reactive Armor for a while in boxes. Man! I'm super happy with it! If I had known it would blow me away this much it would have been un-boxed a long time ago.

Nah, still the 3.75” scale figures.  So, it’s just the standard Jedi robes that come with most figures.

There is a technique of wetting the robes to get them to sit more naturally.  

But this was just a case of me folding and primping it to get it to look “right.”

Yeah they look better in person.  The pics I’ve seen of Ripley on Toyark, which people were complaining about, don’t look like the one I have.

I’m looking forward to doing some YF-19 poses.

Received my newest private warehouse shipment from HLJ, at this point I've got 14 Figuarts Stormtrooper figures from the various releases, but I think I like these newest ANH versions best.

@sqidd That custom DX DYRL VF-1S looks pretty cool.

 

 

AFC 1/100 volume 57 is a British Navy Phantom FG Mk 1 British Phantom 892 Squadron 1977.  Good thing I don’t collect F-4 variants.  Hachette are releasing a lot of them.

My kid loves the novelty Hot Wheels.  Looks like I’m buying Hot Wheels for 2 people now.

Yeah, F-4s are a skip for me. Never been a big fan of those. 
Haha, I gave my kids a bunch of my hot wheels from when I was a kid and when I find the rest, I’ll give them those too. I also let them open any extras I find out of the new ones I’ve bought over the years.

Do you even know how many Hot Wheels you have?

Man I wish I kept all my toys from when I was a kid. My grandmother spoiled me to death. I probably had everything.

No idea. Hundreds, thousands, hundreds of thousands? Lol!

Speaking of, these aren’t new but I opened a random box from my storage today and found these:

Always nice to find some goodies I didn’t know I had. The Cobra is the gem of the lot to me and of course it’s great good to find more Audi and P-Cars.

I like that version of @RedComet's custom DX VF-1S far better than the weathered one he'd shown.

I like the weathered ones. But I'm more of a "toon" guy.

Then you're going to love this!:D
