  1. Who dares wake me from my slumber?
  2. Oh hey, i was the guy who designed the red bioroid and sled for MAAS as well as the Not-Cybertronian Seekers. I received exactly $0 for my efforts. Spencer ran off with all the cash and was never heard from again. I heard he legit went to work in the arse end of the world as a lighthouse keeper.
  3. Console/dash of that ship is smack on identical (except of HUD, but that is also situational/context specific and still very close to the 'original') to what we first saw, and I am incredibly impressed but not surprised at that attention to detail. That was a fun episode. I did a screen cap if ppl are interested - but spoilers blah blah, honestly - why are you on this thread if you haven't seen it yet?
  4. Pure filler, boring episode that added nothing at all, sad to say. Just scenes of him wandering, pondering through a quiet ship.
  5. Yeah looks like the head unit, forgive the 10 sec PS job.
  6. Once it airs, fair game. If you want to avoid spoilers, I dunno... maybe avoid threads relating to said things? Its a different thing when someone posts publically or posts in an unrelated thread or Facebook post. I'm tired of serving the lowest common denominator. Just be a a big boy/girl and stay away from that part of the forum. I have spoken.
  7. Unless there's some sort of miracle, doesn't look like the kickstarter is going to make it Less than 48 hours to go and its barely at a third of the way there. You'd think the Adam Savage video would have brought some interest.
  8. Hey everyone! I'm back after a looooong hiatus from MW. I did a search for this guy's Kickstarter and didn't find anything, so I thought I'd provide a link as I think these toys are super cool and might be of interest to a lot of you here. I've been following this guy for years and finally his Kickstarter went live, but with only 5 days left, doesn't look like he'll hit the goal - which would be a real shame cause this guy's enthusiasm, talent and design deserve to be recognised!!! Check it out and support if it interests you! Figs are 1/35 scale with a lot of customization available + who doesn't like piloted mecha, right? EDIT: Here's the link, duuur: Tecco Toys' AGE OF MECHA Kickstarter
  9. Thank you for the advice! Does mandarake check contents or photograph for you to check the item? Sorry to derail the thread - still can wait for new picks of the 21. I hope they can get more of the bell bottom look going and overall massage the proportions/ stance. It deserves it!
  10. Where does one acquire a Bandai YF-19 these days, I'm years out of the loop. I needs me one in prep for this bad mamajamma.
  11. Psssshhh, I think you mean the Hi-Metal version matches this one - since I made it years before the Hi-Metal release. You'll find the variants here too; https://www.shapeways.com/shops/rpg?section=Macross+VF%2FYF+Upgrades&s=0
  12. Looks great man Glad you're continuing work on the old bird !!!
  13. If you knew the storyline, it wouldn't be very interesting to see. Clearly its going to be a lone wolf & cub-ish, clint eastwood spaghetti western-ish, star wars flavoured man against the world remnants of the empire and all the scum suckers trying to make a quick buck in-between. I love it so far, music, cinematography, show-don't tell attitude and world building.
  14. Thank you! I'll have to dig up the render, or I could just post the shapeways sites - I did end up making more variations when the master file book came out. Here is the page where you can see all the alternate designs; https://www.shapeways.com/shops/RPG?section=Macross+VF%2FYF+Upgrades&s=0 They print good and i test fitted them all successfully - they also come with 2 new face plates now; And the old original desing; https://www.shapeways.com/product/6NVH992MQ/vf-4c-g-k-old-custom-head-unit?optionId=41029965 If there is enough interest, I can go nack into the files and tweak them so they print as one piece or as few as possible to bring the price down marginally - alternatively, I could take orders to do a small run on a Form2 resin printer I have access to. My Shapeways site is largely abandoned these days.
  15. Mmmmmmmdjessss... yes!! Maybe I'll sell me some more VF-4 head units so I can finally eat and buy some petrol.
  16. You can see a few more details and decals here;
  17. As a designer of a couple of 3rd part TFs myself and a few other toys, I don't know any other fellow designers who have charged by the hour - in my experience it is an agreed upon total. How chunks of $$$ that get to you and by what stage is per the initial agreement. As you work with a client more, it gets easier and less negotiation.
  18. This one is hardly line accurate either. Almost all of the official line art is drawn at a low perspective to give an impression of large size - and between that and the animation; there are plenty of liberties taken in the line art, official art and box art to animation. And also, it is drawn repeatedly in the same way because it is a very un-dynamic design and can hardly strike a pose without some serious anime magic. Just my casual arm-chair-designer thoughts.
  19. Surely you can get brass rods at your local hobby store? If not ebay? They're cheap as. Pics on your build please!
  20. Sorry i don't frequent these forums much any more - sorry for the late reply - which Rau are you talking about? The 1/60 yamato or the 1/144 (?) bandai kit?
  21. That's a really silly way to go about it. If everyone gets on that bandwagon, it won't get funded and no one will get them. Clearly that particular retailer went for the retailer retailer incentive, so they're supporting in the hope it'll get made. Correct. Each tetra has in addition to the null rays, another weapon or option that is specific to them - energy blades, impact cannons and in not-TC's case, a set of rockets. The coneheads do not have the energy blade option, but a missile launcher in addition to the impact cannons. Just check out the images. Of course they are all interchangeable and also, not pictured - each weapon can be arm mounted OR hand held as a blaster. As advised above!
