  1. I want, but will wait and see if they do a PF version.
  2. Been considering getting rid of the 2 HMR destroids and looking for a Yamato Tomahawk. I will buy this.
  3. You nailed the problems with the characters better than I could, kudos. In the anime, Jet knew about Spike's past, which was a big part of his understanding of Spike (but is mysterious to us the viewer and is slowly revealed throughout the series). In Netflix's version, we know too much too soon. And to blame us Gen X'ers for its demise...just look at the Rotten Tomatoes scores. It simply isn't very good or well liked.
  4. The series is fun, but nuts. A good ride, I'm glad Netflix stuck with it.

    So we are finally getting the Tomahawk??? I'm divesting of most of my HMR, but will keep destroids and Zentran mecha. Hopefully we see Phalanx, Q-Rau and N-Ger in the near future.
  6. I'd give it 3/10. The space CG was pretty well done as was the planet settings. Jet was accurate but kinda oddly cartoony-acted. The whole thing is kinda that way. I didn't like how the facial hair was done, it looked fake. The kid bit was dumb and totally unnecessary. Spike talks too much. Cho got some of him right, but Spike's a man of few words in the original show. The backstory was fine. Did they make up the name "Fearless" just for this or was it in the manga? Vicious is all wrong. He's like a Dick Tracy or Tim Burton Batman villain. He's not brooding, just an petulant child with daddy issues. Gone is his military background on Titan, and all the complexity of the character. Faye is just all wrong. All the enigma of Faye for most of the series is completely missing, as is her suave bravado. Instead she's just...an American teenager in a 20-something body. I take issue with the NEED to change her character. She was a good character in the anime. She's not in this show. Julia...was she a singer prior to this? She was mysterious by design in the anime...and she's not mysterious in this show. IMO the whole show should have been a lot darker and less cartoony. More like season 1 of Altered Carbon.
  7. Rebuild 1.11 and 2.22 were really good, I liked them a lot. Rewatched both a few days ago. 3.33 started getting a little nuts and 3.0+1.0 IMO got totally whack. I actually rewatched 3.33 last night, I know 14 years passed, but it just didn't feel like Eva to me. Even Misato in the goggles just felt weird. How did they (NERV and WILLE) have the manpower (or machine power) to construct everything they did in it? The Lillith CG was (again IMO) just bad. Like 20 years ago college student bad. Unfinished and amateurish. And the souls being represented by full sized Evas just...huh?
  8. Yawn. I just want the other 2 VF-1A supers in HMR. I don't have PO for the VF-1D or GBP-1S, will see how available those are around release time.
  9. I still have to do 109 (I also have a couple fix issues to get from HLJ), but my test fit is similar. Especially under the aft main battery like yours. Part of the issue may be the bulkhead before the fighter bay. When I'm done with the wiring I'll try my best to deal with the gap. Does anyone have an idea what kind of paint to get to touch up some of the blue parts? I have a couple stress marks on bits hanging off the tower.
  10. Full kit up for sale. http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=224446564590&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111
  11. I will end up trimming the anchor after much testing. I still need to do 109 and fix a couple previous issues. Has anyone else gotten a binders for the manuals? I'm disappointed they only hold 15 books. Plenty of empty space remaining. I'd rather they hold 20-25.
  12. Would much rather have figures to scale.
  13. Would be cool if they did a re-cut of the season 1 in linear order prior to releasing season 2. Anyone who wasn't familiar with the story or characters was completely lost watching it the original way.
