So it looks like the end of the beam rifle swaps out with the alternate gun.

Mine hasn't hit BBTS yet so I can't confirm. Has anyone tried removing the end of their Eta rifle?

Yup, the end is removable.

The message talks about a special event beginning on 7/31 and indicates that beginning with the event preorder will go up "in the store and online", so it looks like July 31 is likely the day.

If Evolution Toys managed to paint their figures & Ride-Armors then I think Sentinel could give it a try.

The Zeta's head-fin seem to drag on the ground in Fighter mode.. :wacko:

There's a picture of it sitting on the landing gear straight forward and it doesn't appear to be an issue.

Luckily we don't have to deal with Bandai-levels of insane preorder madness on these suckers. 

Until you just said that!:rofl:

Don’t put that kind of evil on us, sqidd! :acute:

I wonder if the headfin can be tilted back in fighter mode for the Zeta.  Seems kinda un-aerodynamic to be pointing forward.

but..but..the yf-19 / yf-29 / vf-31 all have forward pointing wings so my concern isn't the aerodynamics.

However, worried about getting stress marks / breaks on that fin jutting out O_O

I've never been a fan of the Zeta, but I gotta admit...Riobot really nailed it with the fire engine red that they went with.  There are a few inconsistencies with the color that I hope they fix or are just lighting.  Mainly, on the wings, here....

And on the head, here....

That's always been a peeve of mine, not to mention, it's been my experience that these color discrepancies only get worse with age with these toys, especially if they're on display or out a lot, like mine are.  I don't think it's enough to keep me from preordering one, though.  These things are amazing.

Some people actually like that, like "Gunpla color separation"

Really?  That's a thing?  Man.  I had no idea.  I know it's just a toy, but my imagination runs away with me whenever I look at or handle these toys and that always took away from that.  It reminded me that it was a toy, as stupid and childish as that sounds.  Ah, well.  Like I said, won't stop me from getting it.  My inner geek will just have to ignore it.

Yep- it flips back in battloid so you can do so in fighter; if previous legioss toys are any indication, it should also come to about the same height and thus have ground clearance with the landing gear down.

You and me both.

Unintentionally, I seem to have a red-blue theme going with my displays.

Just pay  somebody to paint it for ya. The Pilot figs have a nice rough texture so you don't really even need a primer to paint em up.

Akim,
HLJ ships to Europe, but if you have any problems, I'll happily ship to you once I get mine (you've been a great help in the past)

With all the custom modifications made to that vintage Imai kit (metal parts, LED headlights, sideview mirrors), you'd think he would modify the figure so it could at least sit on the bike...  :unsure:

They look like erasers.

Or some kid is going to mistake it for some pieces of bubblegum and pop it in their mouth.

 

Gosh, I hope that's just a mis-transformation and that the head fin can be tilted the other way. That looks really awkward and silly.

Is this the image you are looking at?

06157456-1-1024x683.jpg.64d439558f0454fffbb39868194e854a.jpg

If so the head-fin appears to be completely blocked by the front landing gear, so I'm not sure how you can tell if the fin is dragging or not.  If there is another image you are referring to, could you post it or a link?

Thanks, Carl
