Skull Leader's Lackey (5/15)



  1. I did not know this, thanks. I used to collect the 1:18 Ferrari F1 cars mainly during the MS years but I was never that impressed with Hot Wheels. Then one year all of a sudden (it seemed) the prices tripled with no discernible increase in quality. That's when I stopped buying them.
  2. In fighter mode it would look daft with the tornado gums too high anyway... And in gerwalk you can do this... Still, all personal preference I guess.
  3. The guns on the Isamu 29 aren't a problem. Just fold the head laser forward if you want the full range of forward motion. It's a great Valk, Isamu + 29 = can't go wrong.
  4. I'd hope so given the price difference, but these are just a bit of fun really so I don't mind. Being a bit cheaper than Takara/Hasbro (and a lot cheaper than valks!) they are more fun to pick up and mess with as any breakages aren't a big deal. So I ordered more lol. Thanks abbadon and Gakken
  5. Thanks for taking the time to do this build thread, will follow with interest.
  6. Hey Yeti. No idea on the 29, is there a way of telling? It was sold as used but the one I got wasn't the one pictured as the hands and knife Baggie was still sealed. Joints are all good. Loving the masterpiece cars, especially at KO prices
  7. Very pleased to finally get this at a reasonable price. May have gone a bit crazy with Transformers...
  8. I've been having a go at this and must admit to be thoroughly enjoying getting back into modelling and painting. Here's a few pics of the work so far ( already posted these in the what's lying in your workbench, so apologies for the spamming) DeAgostini Studio Scale Millennium Falcon WIP This is the official forum http://forum.buildmillenniumfalcon.com/forums/forum/build-the-millennium-falcon-model/ There's good work going on there, with lots of clever people adding LEDs etc. These days of course we now have the option of replacement parts via shapeways too.
  9. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu dude. Awesome collection and display. I need a bigger house.
  10. So I've been collecting the DeAgostini studio scale Millennium Falcon kit and I thought I'd show what I've done so far. The thing is going to be massive, it's based on the 32" model created for Empire. So far we've been putting together the cockpit and some frame and hull panel pieces. This is what it's supposed to look like when following the instructions. I decided I wasn't happy with that, so I made a few modifications... I may redo the seats, but overall I'm much happier than I was with it. The main difference aside from the painting/weathering is that I brought the door at the rear forward as it was too far back IMO. Can't wait for all the other bits to arrive, it's going to be a long two years! It's been a while since I did any model making/painting so it's nice to get back into it. Hope you like.
  11. That's a bit harsh considering the YF-19 ankles, VF-1S bits falling off etc etc. Granted the 171CF was a bit of a problem, but none of the other Bandai Valks have had too many issues, certainly not consistent issues. The main problem most seem to have with any Bandai valk is that they usually don't make enough of them! Getting something as fundamental as the basic colour wrong on a hero Valk is pretty shocking in this day and age, and at this price point it is for many like me a deal breaker. I really wanted to buy this but with so many new releases coming, something had to give.
  12. Jeezus that's dark. Too dark. Stupid dark. I'm happy for all you guys that like it, but I'm glad I cancelled. Shame.
