Destroid Armour Waxer (3/15)

  1. Rrraraahahaghaghagh I broke it I broke it.......my gorgeous amazing Sentinal 1/12 Stick ride armor........ughghhghghg. I was transforming the armor to cycle mode to box up in order to send it, along with all my other toys, and I was really thrilled with myself cause I don't think I'd ever had all the parts just locking into place so perfectly. This was by far the best transformation I'd ever done. And it happened. The {SNAP} that each and every once of dreads so badly when we handle our toys. Just a clean break.....right.....right......HERE: First of all, sorry if this is your pic I stole from google images. The piece that hugs up against the bike feels metal, and the pin that's supposed to swivel the plastic part just sheared clean off. And the plastic is useless without a solid pin going through it. UGH. I feel like puking. This toy was expensive as hell when it came out and now it's like two or three times the price. I made sure to be extra careful with it at all times....I babied that thing....and now this. I suppose if I had a teeny drill small enough to get through the metal I could try to get a new pin in there, but I own no such tools. All I could do was mournfully pack the toy back in its box and wonder if I'll ever be able to come up with a decent fix that doesn't cause even more trouble. And it was all lined up so perfectly too. UUGUUGUHHGHHHH.
  2. I watched the two hour documentary on Anno that aired on NHK. Found it online with subtitles. It was very eye-opening. There's no doubt at all that the guy was gifted and had unbridled talent when he was younger, but these days he just seems like an emperor with no clothes. That "final" Evangelion movie was a big-time let down and nothing to write home about. Unfortunately I think his creativity peaked more than 20 years ago. Oh man. That's a bold statement! I think we're gonna see a LOT of ideas far stupider than this in the coming months, but I do agree that this is just a pathetic idea that just reeks of "cash grab" and his devoted following will be all too happy to fork over their money.
  3. Maybe the wrong thread, but I honestly don't know where to post this... The other day I bought an old SF Japanese manga from 1983 cause I wanted the cover art. Unfortunately, the thing was so musty and smelled of almost 40 years of moldy Japanese closets I got asthma just from handling it. I only wanted the cover so I cut off the front and back and ditched the rest. Sorry....I didn't like doing it, but it was smelly. Anyway, the back cover was a cool surprise; this awesome old ad for Macross toys!! These are obviously the smaller scale toys, but still cool! I love seeing stuff like this...just reminds me of how awesome it was growing up in the 80s.
  4. Can't imagine this soft, mushy turd of a show getting green-lit for a second season. Every moment of this thing was purely odious.
  5. I sent a package to America using EMS today!! It felt glorious!!! I can't wait to get rid of all the crap I've been holding on to for people for the last year and a half!
  6. Clearly Bandai (or God) just doesn't want me to ever have a chance at buying this toy for retail price. How many times are they gonna screw everyone? Why don't they just MAKE ENOUGH to meet demand???
  7. I guess this is as good a place as any to ask.... Warning...this question has probably been answered many times over the years, but I'm gonna ask it again... Anyone ever rig the light up fold booster from the old Yamato release to fit on the Bandai version? I love the detail on the Bandai version, but I also think it would be cool to see the light sequence from the Yamato on the Bandai DX.
  8. Just bought this a few weeks ago. It's not in great shape...the obi is kinda ripped. Worst of all, the insert is not included. The record is in there, but no insert. Still.....I just had to have it.
  9. I love my Hi Metal III Lightning....just love it. But I've never noticed being able to put it on the stand in robot mode. Is that the same piece that clips under the fun in fighter mode, or is that some kind of custom piece to use the stand in battroid mode? I'm not about to attempt anything unless I know for sure! Thanks!

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    I still absolutely love this thing. My only regret is that I broke the rear strut to keep the fold booster on. I bought one from shapways.....super expensive. But....it was the wrong color. Better than nothing I guess. Thing is, I never, ever, ever use the missiles. I strictly deck it out as seen in the OVA/Movie so the only extra weapon I've ever used is the arm cannon. Is there any chance some forum member out there has an extra fold booster strut and wants to trade me for a handful of missiles and attachments or something? I've had this thing two years and never even taken them out of the box, so I doubt I'll miss them. Longshot, I know....but hey...hit me up if it sounds plausible!

    Hi-Metal R

    Well, now that 2019 is just about in the history books, it's official: The Hi Metal R VF4 Lightning III is hands down my toy of the year. Nothing else I bought this year came close. What an amazing little toy; just lovely in both modes. I'm sure you all were dying to know what some stranger thought was the best toy of the year....but now you know. Merry Christmas!
  12. Add me to the YF-19 list. Not even close, hands down number one by a good margin. The other ones I like are of course the classic VF-1, mainly the TV designs, and the VF-4 Lightning III from Flashback 2012.
  13. I drove past it many times when I lived in LA briefly in 2003. You couldn't miss it....HARMONY GOLD in huge gold block letters. I thought "geez, how did those guys afford an office here, they don't DO anything? Didn't they go out of business in the 80s?" I guess they're still around....
