  1. Question for the hive mind.

    Although I've built a great many Gunpla over the years they have for the most part been MG, RG and a very small smattering of HG, as well as some older non-grade kits back in the early 90s.

    However, I have never built a Perfect Grade kit. Now I'm thinking about it.

    While I'm mostly a UC timeline fan there are unfortunately no UC-era PG kits that I really like (I'd love a PG V Gundam, V2 Gundam, RX-79G Ground Type, RX-93, XM1 Crossbone, but alas they don't exist). Existing PG UC-era kits such as the RX-79, MKII, Unicorn, GP-01/GP-01FB, Zeta are just not Mobile Suits designs that I'm attracted to.

    So the only PG Mobile Suits that I like enough  to buy are non-UC era designs, with my favorites being the Exia or the Strike Gundam.

    So for those that have built the Exia or Strike PG kits, which is the better choice in terms of  fun factor, frustration factor, details, gimmicks, long term durability, poseability, long term tightness of joints etc?



  2. To be honest, despite being a Macross mega-fan since 1982, my interest in Macross has waned in the last few years, since the train wreck that was Macross Delta and the lack of any decent new Macross TV series or OVA after Delta.

    Also, despite loving the VF-1 design after having bought nearly every variant of the Takatoku 1/55, Bandai 1/55, Bandai 1/100, Yamato 1/60 v.1, Yamato 1/48 & Yamato 1/60 v.2, I've become deathly bored with the VF-1 and have no interest to buy the Bandai Hi-Metal-R or Bandai 1/48. Burned out on buying the same mecha in the same colours, with only dubious possible minor improvements again and again and again.

    These days, although I keep an eye on Macross, my interests are more airsoft and Gunpla.


  3. For the most part I've always said and wrote day, month, year. Just the way I was taught.

    For example 1st January 2020. Although occasionally when speaking I will say month first, probably because I do deal with a lot of Americans in business. But I'll never put the month first in writing.

    Writing the month first just seems wrong to me.

    Smallest to largest unit.......day, month, year is a logical progression.

    I'd be interested to know if any other countries do it the US way and put the month first? Personally it's something I've only ever encountered from Americans.

    It’ll be interesting to see what Zeb looks like in this line. No rerelease of Kanan?

    It' past January already and those figures are not released,

    Or is that the stupid US, nonsensical, ass-backwards date convention that the rest of the world does not use?

    I just finished that second episode and Filoni is THE GUY that should be running Star Wars, especially after Lucas departs this Earth. He gets it, better than most fans. Filoni explaining Anakin and family made me rethink my appreciation for the prequels.

    Also, KK is bad. Just bad. Her rudely injecting herself into the conversation the way she did and watching Jon Favreau's body language to her said it all.

    If Hasbro and Disney were smarter, they should have had the following figures ready to be revealed for today:

    * Ahsoka Tano - Siege of Mandalore version;

    * Maul

    * 501st Clone Trooper - Ahsoka paint scheme

    * Jesse - ARC trooper version

    * Gar Saxon - Maul-Mando version

    * Bo Katan

    Doesn’t surprise me, but that’s just how it’s been.

    I'd buy all of those at once, especially Jesse, 501st Clone Trooper Ahsoka paint version and Gar Saxon.
