  1. The crew is looking good together. (And just barely fit on the Detolf.)
  2. Mine showed up from Amazon JP today as well. I didn't expect it for another week.
  3. Carbotix pre-order up on BBTS @$700. https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/172170 Can't justify that but whoever gets it will have a nice piece.
  4. I'll say that the availability of Bludd and now today's smooth preorder of Barbecue and Breaker are encouraging. Credit to Target and Hasbro for improving things. Hopefully it's the norm going forward.
  5. Up on Amazon Japan: https://www.amazon.co.jp/-/en/dp/B08ZZJZBSQ/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1
  6. The Playmates Classic Lion set is going to be re-released as a Walmart exclusive box set. Preorders here: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Voltron-Legendary-Classic-Comb-Set/861175972 Looks like it may not include all the weapons for the lions that the original release had, but it'd be nice to have the box for storage and it's hard to go wrong at that price.
  7. I did the dye job on my Scott's jammies just this weekend. I'm pleased with the result. Now I don't have red flakes coming off every time I look at it.
  8. At 1/48 (or model railroad O scale) you should be able to find lots of existing figure options to fill out a display. Not that I'm trying to discourage you from cooking up your own.
  9. It's been awhile since I put the film up so I don't have any brand info anymore. I'm looking to get my hands on a UV meter to see what inside vs outside numbers I get. Using Detolf cabinets. Mostly glass.
  10. Yeah, for sure there were some UV issues with my display space that I've since addressed with UV film (and keeping the dang blinds closed). Though these Beagle toys are especially susceptible to it, as the other items in the display cabinet didn't go all yellow like this.
  11. I'm all in on the Sentinel line but I still got a lot of love in my heart for the Beagle/Toynami releases. I like the bigger scale and more anime-accurate style. Like pretty much everyone, my two big disappointments are that they never finished the set of main characters, and -the big one- quality of materials. Mine yellowed really fast and for several years I've been trying different de-yellowing options. I could get the white bits white again but they'd turn back yellow even sitting in a box in the closet. I bleached out some of the blue parts. So I finally decided to just paint them. Normally I want to leave my toys as original as possible but I figured in this case it's not going to get worse. I'm pretty pleased with the results so far. Vallejo Mecha Color green gray is a good match for the main bike. Krylon Fusion on the white bits. I started with Rand's bike because it's got fewer tampo markings. It was actually in worse shape than Scott's. (I didn't think to take any "before" pics.) Looking forward to getting these guys back in the display where they belong.
  12. The top left text appears to say something about "2nd descent" - I'm guessing it is indicating the second earth invasion force. The lower left text says simply "missile pod & cannon", so not much info there.
  13. Hah! I don't like to get too pedantic when it comes to cartoons, but the Japanese katakana characters do make it clear that Legioss is intendended to be pronounced with a hard "G" -> レギオス (le-gi-o-su). A soft "G" would be レジオス. (le-ji-o-su) That's in Japanese. For English speakers, it's pronounced "alf-ah".
  14. I never even took my covers out of the box because I knew I'd lose them immediately.
  15. You can try using some needle-nose pliers to isolate one side of the joint while you rotate the other with your fingers. It's still kind of hectic-feeling and may scratch the paint on the joint, but should help things.
  16. Mine just arrived today as well, sooner than expected. Halfway through transforming, I both love it and hate it for the complexity. I'll probably love it once I have it figured out. I haven't seen it mentioned yet (and I didn't take any pics before transforming), but you can also mount the Imai missle pod under one of the wings in fighter mode. Why you'd want to, I don't know, but it's nice to have the option.
  17. The stand attachment here sure looks like the connecting boom for a Tread...
  18. It's a bit of a balancing act. In case it's not clear (the instructions don't say anything about the stand) you remove the claw and shove the peg into a hole on the bike. It's a tight fit.
  19. Quick shot. Tough to get dynamic poses in armor mode.
  20. One pleasant surprise is I haven't had either of the ankle guards pop off yet. On Stick and Rey they'd fly away if you looked at them funny.
  21. Seems like it's removable. It's not attached in this photo.
