  1. Just purchased the reactive armor set from Bolt and did some work to my Yamato VF-0S to get the armor to fit decently for display only. the only thing i really had to do was remove the entire chest plate for the Yammie VF-0. Since the reactive armor chest plate covers it anyways, no point having it if you are using it for display purposes like me. it doesn't click in or stay, but will sit on the cockpit just fine. Arm Armor fits perfectly and backpack slides on decently. Tabs don't click in place. the biggest issue is the legs, the leg fins are too large to fit the leg armor flush so it can hold 3 sides of the leg armor on, but the back piece can only attach at the bottom so there's a visible gap. All in all - looks 90% good enough in my display cabinet!!
  2. Slight mod to Yamato VF-0S removing chest plate to fit the Arcadia Reactive Armor. Leg armor show a visible gap, but otherwise looks 90% decent for display purposes only!
  3. got super lucky and found a Faerie Leader VF-2SS on ebay for $130 shipped. Even at that price, it was tough to swallow some of the QC issues out of the box. Screw covers popping off, right arm is loose, and my left arm complete broke at the elbow joint with little movement. Yay for decent display piece (as are most of my toys in my collection)! Love the size and look of it though, but yea, i can barely touch it
  4. nice find Vlenhoff!!!! now that you are moving, i recommend keeping what you can display and enjoy, even double in different modes. then sell the rest! never been much of a closet collector and love displaying my toys to enjoy, so keep your joy/happiness year round by displaying your collection and don't keep em boxed up in a closet! p.s. then sell me some fastpacks!! haha... j/k

  9. just chiming in to vouch that i did receive my replacement parts about a month ago. everything came except a replacement hose connector piece on the back of the helmet, but i see how that would be hard to replace. Sorry to hear about the others not getting their parts. Keep emailing them!

  13. just got my 2nd helmet in the mail today too. heres my pictorial journey box came in a regular masei helmet box opened and was pleased to see bubble wrap additonal side view of bubble wrap. they also include some foam bits in the corners of the box for extra protection opened drawstring bag and there was extra foam bits protecting the face shield also more foam padding on the back helmet bits one side is perfectly lined up the other not so much overall no damage from shipping! there is one chipped paint on the visor, but it wasnt due to shipping so it must have been a factory issue. no biggie as i can paint it over much better than the first,but still not thrilled about the unaligned arrows.hoping the extra parts come as nicely packed.
  14. wow, that rounded visor makes a huge difference!!! nice job lavinrac!
