Maybe I'm used to seeing it from a low perspective, but it looks off somehow...

It most certainly is off proportionally... To the point that I would say that the old 1/5000 ARII tv version is nicer than this! Funny, toy companies manage to get the look and proportions of the MacroSS very nicely while having to make it transform, whereas Hasegawa lawn-darts in its attempt to make the same design with a single mode.

You had one job, Hasegawa. ONE!!! :angry:

Maybe one of our members needs to drive by Hasegawa's headquarters building and look for an "under new management" sign? - MT

Agreed, I have the Yellow Submarine 1/4000 resin kit and I feel it looks better than the pics provided of the Hasegawa version. The Arms & legs really make it look odd.

Indeed. As a quick exercise, I stretched the main leg portion a little & thinned the "thighs" a bit.

I think it makes a big difference. I feel these same adjustments would make the cruiser look better as well.

Update - side by side comparison.

It does look better, as best as I can tell. I would love to see it in the TV version now. - MT

I made resin copies of the Valkyries from the TV version. I plan to do the same with the destroids that come with the eventual TV Storm Attacker. Then it'll be Hello Daedalus Attack!

Is it a Tenjin image, if it is at least we stand a chance at a good A4 sized print in an art book.

Sure is! You can just make it out in the pictures at the bottom of the box image.

I just did. :wub:

And in two months time, they will announce the TV version too? ^_^

They should include an effects part for the electricity between the bow guns.

True. -_-

But you can buy this if you want to. ;)

I have been thinking about how best to make this for ages, I think the pose the Tenjin has portrayed is perfect.

Will there be an option to lower the main cannon like in the box art?

Or will we have to do some creative surgery?

The box art was SO cool I used it as an example in my Graphic Communications class! Without putting in a Jacob's Ladder circuit on that model, maybe some tinted fishing line going partly across in segments or a clear piece with the effect painted on might work to re-create that. - MT

Thanks. I have the nu Gundam mg and the parts effects look a bit small compared to the sdf bow guns though. The fin funnels ate only about 2 inches long I think. The sdf I think is a bit longer.

The effect parts are on a sheet I suppose you could cut out the size for the sdf. However the parts are cookie cutter pre cut on the sheet for the fin funnels so it might not look so good.

A plate on top and a plate of effects parts like the nu Gundam has a nice 3d effect. But only looks good from top or bottom side shots. You'd have to at another plate for front because the Gundam parts are hollow from the front. I like the street fighter mini sd figures. They have the lighting go up the figure and that could look nice on the sdf like charging up.

Sorry I'm new here.

Someone just gave me this as a present and will like to know if that are any manuals for it in English.

No sadly due to the licensing issues with Big West and Harmony Gold they are only ever made with Japanese instructions.

No worries though there are many people here who will gladly translate bits for you or just plain old advise you on colours etc.

Another thing that has helped me from time to time is Google's translation app. Just snap a photo of the text and you can translate it to English.

Sure, it still suffers from being a Google translation; but it's usually enough to give you the gist of the little notations, when you can't figure it out from the picture.

if you can get over the occasional Yoda speak then you'll be fine.

That said translating Japanese word by word give you much the same so at least Google trys.
