  1. I'm looking for a Jetfire backpack armour. Please let me know if anyone has one for sale.
  2. No problem. I was just wondering what happened.
  3. I saw the thread a while ago and the proofs. But what happened to this project?
  4. He probably thought the Valk came with the armour. Link
  5. Hook me up with one of those sheets. It looks great.
  6. Put me down for a set. Looks great!
  7. Has anyone taken a 1/60 (VF-1A Max or Hikaru specifically) and modified it so that it could accept fast packs? Any DIY links out there?
  8. Woohoo! I'm from Canada too! Well sometimes you get lucky and sometimes you don't with shipping. I bought stuff in the past that gets to me in 2 days, other times over 2 weeks. As for customs I got nailed once. They wanted to charge me $50 for a Jetfire I bought. I protested it and got lucky that I didn't have to pay...but I also waited 1 month to get that dam thing. Luckily nothing ever got lost.
  9. That looks sooooooo good! Great job!

    1/60 GBP

    Just the armour...I have the 1J already.
  11. I work in an automotive facility that uses injection molding and blow molding. The basic reason you can't recast parts with higher quality plastics is because you need high temperature and pressure to inject the plastic. As was said previously you need special equipment to do this. As for why the bootlegs are so cheap, it all comes down to quality. The quality of the toy and the quality of the molds they are using. Better quality is obviously more expensive. If you want a super accurate part then you would get a CNC cut steel mold. But for all we know the bootleg companies could be using poor quality aluminum molds which are a hell of a lot cheaper but do not produce as good a part. There are also other issues such as production volumes, overhead, design and development, etc. that all affect piece price.

    Rohby's JM recast

    Yeah, I replied to that post but I haven't heard anything in a while. I'll just keep waiting.

    Rohby's JM recast

    I just got one of Rohby's JM recasts and it is truly amazing! The recast quality is fantastic and it is actually very sturdy for a recast. I am very impressed. Now all I need are the decals for it. Is anyone going to be working on these anytime soon?

    1/48 BR "blue camo"

    That is AMAZING! Great work!
  16. I'll need a set of decals too. Just bought a recast JM from Rohby. Let me know if you need $ up front (to whoever is going to make these).
  17. Hey guys, thanks for the quick replies. I didn't mean the 20th Anniversary Prime...I have that already. I meant the G1 reissue but I think Myriad covered it. So material and quality are the same right?
  18. What are the differences between these two? I'm not talking about the box, accesories or price. The toy itself, is it basically the same? Same amount of plastic and metal? Same quality? Please let me know. Thanks.
  19. $200 for a MIB 1/55 GBP-1S...I think that was a pretty good deal though.
  20. I just saw these and they look pretty cool. Does anyone here own them? How big are they? Are they cheap crap or are they worth getting? I assume they are made of plastic (no metal)? Any details that you guys can give would be great. Thanks.
