Wow, I'm thoroughly blown away by the detail and movement of this figure. It's truly a work of art. What colors did you use for your build? the colors look great on it.

Hey thank you @Jasonc, that figure is probably the one with the highest parts number that I will ever design. The arms+hands and the chin in particular have unique articulation designs that can't be used in other models. All that makes this figure very special to me.

I have chosen the colors according to Bandai "non-scale" prototype that used Olive Drab for the main body

dark green : Tamiya TS-28 Olive Drab 2
dark red (main body) : Tamiya TS-33 Dull Red
bright red : Tamiya TS-85 Bright Mica Red

yellow accents: Revell Enamel 12 Yellow Gloss
metallic accents: Revell Enamel 97 Green Metallic

Along with all the other stuff you make, this is a definite want. I'll just have to buy part by part. At least it'll give me time to work on each piece as I get them. Also, thanks for the reply in paints. I have most of those paints already, so I'll start off with this very slowly.

I'm sure it is. I'll probably go down the list as my paychecks come in. question though,,, what do you suggest I start on first? should I start on arms, legs, or a specific body piece that needs to be done first? Also, do you have a list of screws and extra parts that are needed? Sorry, I know that's a lot of questions.

Screws: only M1.7 x 6mm 

1mm diameter pins, average length 6mm, max length 18mm

three metal screw + bolts size 3mm x 20mm

2 metal bars diameter 1.8mm x 65mm

No extra part needed except if you want to light up te laser canon, but I don't think that's worth the effort. 

The Vajra is built in humanoid form from the bottom to the top, so you should begin that way if you want to reduce disassembling and extra manipulations. As explained on page 1, all the parts are sold without margin except for the head, chin and Carap part1.

My favorite and best engeenered parts are the head and chin, you should try them first to "feel" how complex this figure is. But expensive. On a second thought there are also the front legs (hands in humanoid form) and the laser Canon which are great models too IMO.

I recently bought a few vehicles to go with the SV-262 or future Arcadia Sv-51. They were sold as 1/50, but they really look like 1/60 to me. 

Anyway since I got This one I couldn't resist to pose it with the Vajra.

That is soooo good Xigfrid!  Both poses are incredibly menacing.  I still can't believe you managed to get this thing made so well, and to have it be so articulated too.  Well done!

Thanks everyone! I really can't understand why this figure has never been released, no complex transformation mechanisms, a little big, a tad bigger than the Oversized Optimus Prime MPP10, so it shouldn't be too expensive to produce in small quantity such as 1-2 thousands.

Sometime I really think something is off /weird with me: I tend to prefer the "Bad guys" over the main characters, if they have an intelligent/kind background and that they are not just born mad. And if they turn good at the end, that's even better.

In Frontier for instance, I will prefer Brera and its enigmatic VF-27 anytime over Alto and its VF-25F, even I prefer the Vajras that save SDF-Frontier from the Galaxy gun blast over the VF-171.

Same for Delta where I prefer Rogue/Bogue complex character over Hayate (that just want to dance and protect his girl... really??), and recently after reading the Macross Delta manga spinoff, I like more Keith.

(Russian accent) Dosvadania to dose Russian veekles! That came out great Xigfrid! Its cool to see people make models that aren't available commercially. Great finish and execution over all! - MT
