  1. That's definitely one of the other goofy lines. I think it's Cherno Alpha where they brag about how it's pure steel, no alloys at all involved in its construction. You really can't take any specifics of what it tells you too seriously. Plus the Hong Kong Shatterdome alone was said to be capable of handling 30 Jaegers all on its lonesome at peak across 6 bays, so I really doubt they maxed out at 30 active total across the entire Pacific.
  2. I really wouldn't put too much thought into the numbers involved in a series about giant robots where one of the giant robots is introduced by bragging about how it doesn't use any alloys in its construction. Just go off what it shows.
  3. Keep in mind Jaegers were mass produced in large quantities for years upon years. Pacific Rim 1 had 4 remaining in operation, and more were clearly in operation for Uprising including the Drone ones and they clearly were operating more than just the one Shatterdome in Uprising given you see the attacks on the other domes in it. Australia likely had operations to try and get it under control for a while before they gave up and abandoned the continent, and with that base just outside their territory it's not hard to suspect they'd send in Jaegers occasionally.
  4. I actually bought a set a while back explicitly for that purpose. The fit is a bit snug but they definitely do work.
  5. It's honestly kind of surprising there's been no efforts at an ExoSquad revival.
  6. Admittedly, I don't consider someone willingly refusing to do common sense, easy, safe things during a pandemic to avoid being infected and/or infecting others and dying for it to be all that sad either. I ran out of empathy for that sort of person sometime last year.
  7. Turns out it was that he wouldn't get vaccinated. Oops.
  8. That's my sentiment. HLJ prices mean DHL is cheaper and half the advertised speed, let alone real speed. I'd started using them just before Covid hit and kept using them right through it. Absolutely amazing customer service whenever I've had questions or issues, too.
  9. Her TERF nonsense sure ain't "common sense" broham, but that clown world comment tells me all I need to know on that front.
  10. It's interesting. Weird, but interesting. I appreciated the world building and was amused by not-quite-referencing the MMO plotline but not specifically overwriting it either. I'm still not ENTIRELY sure what to think of it, I'll probably have to watch it again to be certain. But it's interesting.
  11. Operation Wingman is an indie game loveletter to Ace Combat that has been on PC for a while and recently got ported to Xbox. Not a terribly high budget creation, but as I understand they did a very good job within the limits of what they could do.
  12. Tamashii Web Exclusives (TWE) are bought from the Premium Bandai website, or P-Bandai. There's a US version of that website now which was what they were trying to show, and most places aren't going to be trying to do proxy orders for the US website, while the Japanese website already sold out and is starting a second run of orders due to the first selling out.
  13. The VF-31AX series does have distinct changes from the VF-31, and the forearm guns are noticeably larger. The wing is noticeably thicker in general too. Those two combined would be why they sit lower.
  14. Correct! Not enough normal air travel for the old ways of getting mail around means they have to pay for space on dedicated flights. Which is why they added, like, a 40% "temporary" surcharge. Which may or may not ever disappear for all anyone knows.
  15. So many cries of taking forever to get items, or month+ waits for tickets to be responded to, etc. I barely used NY to begin with but ever since the horror stories started coming in I don't think I ever could bring myself to again. I'd rather just wait and troll Mandarake post-release rather than throw my money away at NY.
  16. Looking at Aliexpress I'm seeing the KO of the VF-117 missile set much to my surprise, but nothing for the YF-19 and its pylons sadly.
  17. So just to check, having come from the DX Chogokin YF-19 thread, is there anyone with a Shapeways listing for DX Chogokin YF-19 missile pylons? I got my YF-19 today and want to share the arsenal love around my other compatible DX Chogokins (VF-31A, YF-29, Draken III, with other VF-31s to come) and was trying to find more of the pylons themselves since it only comes with 6 plus the 2 reaction missile racks. In specific these parts, the ones that physically attach to the wing and the missiles or missile racks plug into: Checking Xigfrid's shop showed pylons like that but designed to interface with his missiles as opposed to for interfacing with the existing missiles.
  18. Yeah, I know they can fit to both. Just a matter of having enough to go around and be a little ordinance fairy. I'll pop in over there and check.
  19. Yeah, I knew from Jenius's reviews that the hardpoints work. Just a lot more missiles than hardpoints, so I was hoping to find hardpoint pylons that fit the YF-19's weapons, just the part that clips/pegs onto the wing and a missile or rack attaches to, to use more of the weapons across more aircraft rather than the 6 it comes with (and the dedicated reaction missile racks, I guess). I'd actually remembered Xigfrid's shop from before but it looks like he only has hardpoint pylons to fit his specific printed missiles, not generic ones as it were. Unless I've managed to miss something in looking around, which I'll admit could be the case. Uh, I guess to be more clear, these lil' guys in specific:
