ARMD Deck Swabber

ARMD Deck Swabber (2/15)



  1. Oh, guess you did get it, then, eh? It's been a long time since I last transformed this thing, but I thought I remembered that part of the heat shield staying up on this particular model once snapped in place. Did you try yanking harder as suggested earlier in the thread? But yeah there was a reason I kept it stored with the heat shield deployed. Plus, I kind of like the look of the fighter mode with heat shield deployed (especially on this valk).
  2. Well I definitly see a hand on the inside of Vortex's left leg. Also, Blast Off looks awesome but I'm not crazy about Vortex's coloration. Edit: Got beat on the hand spotting
  3. *Facepalm* We went through this with MP Hot Rod, too Come on, Mike, don't be so anti-social. You know you want that gorgeous piece of red-ish plastic. (I was not a fan of their color choice after seeing him in person) PS The Marshalls in Monroeville has never had much in the way of Generations/RTS so I'm not sure you'll have much luck by Sams Club. I got an MP Skywarp at that TJ Maxx a year ago though
  4. Try the Marshalls (or is it TJ Maxx?) behind Westmoreland mall. They had 3 Perceptors less than a week ago. I've never seen a single Junkion at retail, but managed to get a Wreck-gar and Junkheap at decent prices in the aftermarket (and wouldn't mind getting a few more of either) I'd like a PCC Heavytread, too, while I'm at it. KOToys.com perhaps?
  5. I don't know why everyone needs a reason why the clones "betrayed" the Jedi. There's a reason why Order 66 was simply referred to as Order 66: they had known what it was since early on in their training, when they were given a list of potential "worst case scenario" orders. I can't particularly recall for sure, but I believe it was Rex who said that the clones were serving a greater cause: to serve and defend the Republic. They weren't bred to serve the Jedi. In fact, Order 66 specifies that the Jedi needed to be executed because they are traitors/a threat to the Republic to which they were made to be loyal. There are some clones whose personal loyalties made them hesitate or even refuse to execute their commanders, but not all Jedi were as friendly and respectful toward them as Anakin (see: Krell). Also, some clones (like Dogma in these episodes) are more likely to obey orders without hesitation, over personal loyalties to their Jedi commanders and even fellow clones.
  6. Only until he finds someone selling a $10 transformer that he just has to have for $100
  7. 1/60 YF-21: I wasn't a fan of the design/lineart but got one "just to have one." I actually like the look of the toy's fighter mode, but gerwalk and battroid are still huge mehs. And the transformation makes me cringe anytime I attempt it. Revoltech (transforming) VF-1: I saw some pictures that made it look good (in battroid and gerwalk) and it was on sale cheap...it turned out even worse than people said it was (both the design and the build quality/qc), and makes me wonder why people buy any revoltechs at all
  8. I just got a 0A (mass production), and I lucked out and got the safe(est?) release of the mold for a pretty good deal here on MWF (Thanks, Dreadpyrat) There are parts of it that feel a little looser in fighter mode than I might like, but it is drop dead sexy in all three modes. To me, it's a more realistic and "perfected" representation of the VF-1 design, and is actually my favorite Macross toy I own right now.
  9. There's a fair amount of crappy episodes, but if you want to see some of the best examples (in my opinion) watch: -Season 2, Episode 5 "Landing at Point Rain" (cool battles) -Season 2, Episode 17 "Bounty Hunters" (Seven Samurai homage) -Any episode involving Cad Bane (end of season 1 and beginning of season 2, I think)
  10. There wasn't really any trooper action, but I thought this episode was quite good. Anyone agree?
  11. Is it just me, or did they still not explain why the Tardis exploded at the end of Series 5?
  12. Agree. The first half (or somewhat less) of the episode I reapeatedly asked myself why on earth they thought it was a good idea to focus on Jar Jar/the Gungans. Then Maybe Jar Jar is the mastermind behind all this... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ovO7lmFYCc
  13. Pretty sure he means the difference between the various V2 releases, not V1 vs V2. Here's Jenius's review that contains the details you seek: http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=4599 (scroll down to the "Charm & Collectability" subsection) And this list from the review shows which valk is which version: http://anymoon.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Yamato-V2-Table-1A.jpg
