Thanks gang! I’m debating adding my minty Matchbox SDF-1 but I really like where it’s currently at.

@nightmareB4macross I got really lucky. There is a super cool dude out of Chile that I met on an FB group. He’s moving to Europe and needed to consolidate much of his collection. I actually picked up VT and VE from him.

Great score!

I am very happy for you.

Looks great again. Thanks for the idea to use Flightpose and the risers.

And to show you my DYRL VF-1SFireSkyJet spec Strike Cannons.:lol:

I just popped these guys out. First draft of a DYRL shelf. Getting a feel for what will and will not fit. I've got M&M Q-Rau's too. They're probably going to have to go on the M&M shelf. I don't see them working here without really jammin stuff in there (which isn't my nature). I feel like the back corners need something though. Or, another option is to put all of these in Battroid and V tem into the back corners. Then put a 1/60 VT and VE where the fighters are now. Yeah, wrong scale. May not be too egregious though with the 1/48's in Battroid and the Fighters in 1/60. I'm going to have to think about that.

Having played with these Yammies and DX's at the same time really shows the difference 20ish years makes. The DX's are just plan beefier in Battroid. Like, "Man, those DX's have been hitting the weights" beefier. IMO the nod goes to the DX's in Battroid. Fighter is a a toss up to slight advantage to the Yamato's.

There may be some @RedComet customs happening to replace those Yammies.:rolleyes:

I got a pretty good deal on those Yammies on Yahoo Auctions. All from the same seller.

That’s great display. Maybe if you ask Mr. Salzo he could cast you a pair of Regult Pods in 1/48 that you could have commission painted in crouching positions to fill the corners. The Regult could not be accommodated in those shelves.

Or set up 1/6 scale figures of Misa, Hikaru, and Minmay.

Nice display @DYRL VF-1S !  Can you post some more of this Hikaru Strike in different modes and different poses? ...  If it’s not to much to ask.  ^_^

I got one of those clip in shields for mine too. The red tabs up near the head were driving me crazy. I hit them with a Sharpie and bingo, bingo (I've been watching too much Gold Rush/ Tony Beets), fixed!

:clapping:

Hahaha! You know it! Gotta love them Chunkies. And glad to report that ToyHax adjusted the decals for the 100 on the stabilizer as well as the "stars" on the calf.

That's awesome man. I'm keeping mine OG so it stays with the vintage feel (or maybe it's just because I don't trust myself with customizing LOL).

With the arrival of the 35th Anniversary valk I think I’m done with the regular 1/60. 

Need a a few shoulders though.  Cleaned and checked some of the valks and gonna need 3 Pairs of white, 1 pair of Brown, and 1 pair for the Ostrich. I don’t remember if some do the sold valks came with extras. I could have sworn I throught I saw a pair when I was unboxing. Anyone have any extras or know where to get some? 
 

Which Valk has this common issue again? For some reason my Hikaru line up 1As and 1S shoulders have issues and a brownie and ostrich. Ostrich not sure if there was a updated version. It’s been a while so I might be out of date on the upgrades. 
 

But yeah dusted. They look small for some reason.

Yamato still not done a few more customs needs to be finished. Plus still waiting on you for a couple of the specials. 

Bandai only collecting one of each since I still have Delta and Premium line to finish. 

Hot toys predominantly occupied at the moment.

That custom VF-1D! :hail:

The weathering and panel-lining take it so many levels above the unmodified 1/60.

I managed to squeeze another shelf into the 1:60 corner...

Your talent of finding another place to add a shelf is as or more impressive than your collection. 

No doubt! :hail:

That VF-1D is amazing, never get tired of seeing it, those Virgin Road 1D's are pure envy! B))

Who built that custom 1D for you @Kicker773
