  1. I thought the concensus was that it was a 50/50 with the shoulders being bung?

    Mine (Shin 0A with Ghost combo) just went through another transformation cycle, and nothing broke yet. Touch wood it would've died on me by now. And i'm not scared of transforming it so i'm applying normal pressure to the shoulders when transforming as if it was a 1/48, and it's tight so i need to apply the adequate pressure. So all good here.

    Had you loosened the screws when you initially got it, or any other special percaution? I mean, I'm not planning to be cruel to the Shin 0A + Ghost if I get it, and it'll spend its days most likely in Fighter mode with brief spans in Gerwalk, but I'd definitely like to know that this thing isn't going to lose its arms on me if I handle/transform it. :blink: Judging by re-reading all the threat, the timing implies that they should have the new arms. The POM thing ended up being a misunderstanding, to the lack of it on the materials listing for it doesn't say anything.

  2. Guys, the 0A giftset has the craptastic shoulders, not the good ones. THe only VF-0 toys with good shoulders are the VF-0S 2nd edition and the VF-0S Ghost set. No 0A has been made with good shoulders yet. Since no 0A has been made with good shoulders it's probably a safe bet that any people ordering 0A colored arms are still getting crappy breakable ones.

    You sure on this? I was planning to grab a VF-0A + Ghost set soon 'cause I'd heard they had the fixed shoulders like the VF-0S + Ghost did. I'd prefer the VF-0A version of the set for the coloration, but if they're still prone to breakage it'd be pointless to get a toy that's inevitably going to break in a critical manner.

  3. That is another thing is that people are afraid to give negative feedback. Some of his positive feedbacks have negative remarks. I gave him a neutral feedback with a S L O W ! notice. So far he has not reciprocated a neutral or negative or positive for that matter.

    I've noticed that since the start of January there's been a trickle of feedback for SV-51's citing the slow shipping and questionable packing materials. I figured it was MWers slowly but surely getting theirs in and not taking any guff, given the comments here and the times matching up. Here's hoping to getting mine soon and intact. :rolleyes:

  4. I've been having the same problem with Jchung as others. SV-51y Nora type purchased/paid for December 3rd, still hasn't arrived. A few days ago he claimed the post office returned it and he'd be mailing a new one the next day. By the sound of everything I've been reading here, that's what he told other people too and he just hasn't shipped the damn thing yet.

    Oh well. Going by his feedback around that time, it would of been hard to have predicted getting hosed like this. Sure as hell will be the last time I buy anything from him.

  5. I'm not sure what a reasonable price for this would be, but I've been wondering if anyone would want to part out just the strike cannon attachment from the FAST Packs that came with the 1/48th scale VF-1J 'Stealth' Valkyrie.

    I just think it'd look nice displayed with 2 of them as a counter to my VF-1J Millia with the micro missile launchers :ph34r:

  6. I posted in the "Wanted" forum but it might also be worth while posting it here...

    I'm looking to get the Strike Cannon (not the entire FAST pack, just the cannon attachment) and possibly single-mount RMS-1 missiles (not the dual rack) for the 1/48th VF-1J "Stealth" Valkyrie.

    Please PM me on this matter if you can help.

  7. Unfortunately this thing is already out of manufacture at the factories according to Yamato by proxy of HLJ.com, so my hopes of purchasing a matching Strike Cannon from there are gone.

    What I'd like to purchase is the 1/48th "Stealth" VF-1J's Strike Cannon and, if possible, the single-mount RMS-1 missiles although those are a lower priority.

    I'm really not sure what a good price on something like this would be, though. Can anyone toss offers my way?

  8. Even with Kira's "gotcha" moment he still showed that he still managed to show a moment of stupidity.  Yeah, he made a point, but it would have been a better point if he just blasted Destiny in half.  Shinn took Kira down once, and was caught surprised this time, which likely won't happen again.  Shinn can adapt, and after the "gotcha" fought Freedom evenly.  Shinn also wasn't in Seed mode until Kira pissed him off again.  Kira will never have as clear a shot at Destiny again.  Shinn knew he made a mistake.  Kira learned nothing from being impaled by Shinn.  Shinn is not going to stop unless he is stuck down hard.

    So IMO Kira gets a wash.  Point for the "gotcha" but point revoked for not following through when he had the chance.

    Shinn's going to continue to be a problem, but from the next episode preview it looks like Rey will take over anyway.  Justice was shown approching Destiny so those two will start their skirmish.

    It still looked like Destiny has a manuverability edge on Freedom, Shinn seemed to be moving a lot more than Freedom.

    The Doms were awesome.  The beam shields were perfect for their attack.  I like the beam/bazooka hybrid too.


    At that range, a shot from the belly gun would of done more then just blow Destiny in half... also, ZAFT's Gundams still have the cockpit in the middle of the abdomen, not the top of the chest, so it's quite likely Kira would of killed Shinn.. not something he was willing to do.

    Kira's intention in that fight was, from my perceptions, to keep Shinn/Destiny busy so that Cagalli could get away. Making it quite clear he's dealing with not only the revived Freedom, but its 'ghost' of a pilot is one hell of a way to make sure that Shinn's attention was on him, and not McBling Gundam.

    While yes, rationally it is better for Kira to have killed Shinn on the spot (and as anti-climactic as it would of been, it'd of been nice to see. Would show that Heine isn't alone in the "Badass ace pilot making stupid n00b mistakes" department) I think it's been shown quite well by now that Kira is not entirely rational and goes to great pains not to kill someone if its avoidable. He made every effort he could to find a way of simply disabling the Destroy unit Stellar was piloting until it became obvious that one, he wouldn't be able to, and two, that Shinn's stupid ass was was too busy going "OMG TEH STELLARZ :D" to notice he was about to get vaporized.. Hell, even with the underpowered (relatively) Strike he was still shooting only to wound while defending the Eternal.

  9. The way I see it, Cagalli was lost. Before, she had to fight to do what was right, but in this case that would mean fighting her own people. How many of you could fight your own countrymen in a war without feeling ANYTHING about it? Cagalli was whiny, yes.. but she was lost and ineffective, and she /knew/ it.

    But, when she returned to Orb and found it under attack, and found out her father had left a will and testament to her.. A means to protect her country when it needed a protector most, she decided to take it. She didn't spin a 180, she just had something to focus on. And, once Jona was out of the way (and arguably even before that, given how well trained the Murasame squads with her apparently are..) she had the ability to defend her homeland the way she wanted to originally.

    Even I found Cagalli to be obnoxious during most of the series, but its been a consistant obnoxiousness due to a set of environmental conditions that have subsided. She's gone from wandering and ineffective to having a specific goal and the means to reach that goal. Going from "How do I get Orb to stop being the EAF's bitch lapdog?" to "I need to get these jackasses OFF my lawn!" tends to help you get your focus back.

  10. The single most hilarious thing that these people have overlooked.. is that their fuss is what made this mod so popular! I sure as hell didn't know about it before everyone started going "omg, titties in GTA!"

    The code was hidden well enough that in the almost-a-year timespan of the PS2 version being out, no one found it. It wasn't until the PC version came out (where they SHOULD of taken the time to clean up the code while they were changing things..) and the scripting files became easily accessable and modifiable that it was found out. From there they used the data they knew and back-tracked in the PS2 and X-Box versions to find the same code.

    The idea of making what is already a Mature rated game 'Adults Only' just because parents are too lazy or stupid to realize what they're buying for Little Timmy, let alone that Little Timmy can find FAR better (and already has, I guarantee..) means of getting himself corrupted (and off..) then badly rendered, polygonal tits in a GTA:SA game.

    But of course, videogames are only for children.. and we can't have our children looking for ways to unlock pr0n in their games on the internet! Why, they might figure out it's easier just to skip the middleman of the game and go straight for the pr0n online. :rolleyes:

  11. Though my comments aren't aimed towards any one particular person who's participated in this thread, but for those who talk about sex being "harmless" - movies, TV, and in this case, video games, only show the fun and enjoyment.  Rarely do they look into the physical and phsycological damage/consequences that can result (VD, pregnancy, millions of "unwanted" babies from said pregnancies being snuffed out via abortion, etc.).


    Relatively speaking, it IS harmless.

    Remember, we're talking about GTA here.

    Given all the rest of the content in the game, having sex with your girlfriend ranks pretty darn low on the list of evils of the world.


    Ironically, the sex minigame is one of the most wholesome activities you do in the game.. Killing crack dealers, blowing the heads clean off of cops, carjacking, turf wars, drive-by's, acting as a damned federal agent on black-ops, working for and against the mafia, the triads, etc.. Even the tamer competiitions (racings, low-rider, etc) could be argued to be gambling or the ever-ambigious 'organized crime' due to competing for cash. =P

    So we have a game full of moral ambiguity and malicious behavior of a most basic, violent level. ...Yet they're worried about you boning your girlfriend while you're fully-clothed for all intents and purposes? Where the hell was the whining to make God of War AO for /its/ sex minigame, tits galore, and violence..?

  12. Impulse's sales were crap

    Do you have any sales figures to back that statement up, or is it just speculation?


    I don't have the sales figures to back it up, no. Every indication I've seen on the matter says that Fuduka himself came out and admitted it during one of his interviews. If he didn't and Impulse's sales didn't suck, I respectfully retract my remark.


    It should also be noticed it wouldn't be his first decision based purely on sales numbers. Dearka defected to the Archangel primarily due to poor sales of Buster's merchandise..

  13. I like how the box says "Mobile Suit Strike Freedom Gundam" as if that's the name of the show. :)


    ...That's where the name of the MS normally goes. All of the most recent generation packaging is that way.

    Just because Shinn's obnoxious and unpopular enough not to get the title card spot on the second two openings doesn't mean Bandai's going "Gundam SEED Destiny? Rofl! It was really Gundam SEED STRIKE-U FREEDOM THE ENTIRE TIME!" all over everything related to the show. Impulse's sales were crap, so they went with the safe bet (Freedom) to be the second half's mascot suit.

  14. So I'm kind of curious about how well does S. Freedom work on earth, where he can't use the DRAGOON system.  Is he just as powerful? 

    If you think it's powerful now, just wait until he goes into seed mode.


    It's likely that the DRAGOON system won't function on Earth (although there's no guarantee they can't use small thrustors to hover or something..) but it's quite likely the DRAGOON weapons themselves can be by directing the barrels in the right directions, like Legend does. Maybe the tips of the funnels can tilt to bring them around? That'd definitely make up for the loss of the Balenas..

    I also wish to state that Strike Freedom is sex in a can. A sexy can. I hope the MSiA looks that sexy, and hopefully the undoubtedly coming MG model will too. :D
