ARMD Deck Swabber

ARMD Deck Swabber (2/15)



  1. Interesting, so I'm not the only one with a broken landing gear door, which broke off on the left leg. It's possible that I might have applied too much pressure, in an attempt to open it? Other than the broken hinge, it's an impressive KO of Arcadia's VF-1J. I had considered acquiring the red version, but I really don't need the Fast Pack accessories. Has anyone had issues with folding up the backpack, when transforming the VF-1J into battroid mode? I didn't want to break the hinge on mine, so I reluctantly left it on a 90 degree angle.
  2. So, with great reluctance, I am selling off most of my Macross collection: - Yamato VF-11B 1/72 scale toy only (broken right hip joint) $84.99 (Buy It Now) https://www.ebay.com/itm/164602176792 - Yamato VF-19S (missing pilot) $324.99 auction https://www.ebay.com/itm/165048930050 - Yamato YF-19 toy and accessories only (black 25th Anniversary edition) $194.99 auction https://www.ebay.com/itm/154593319215 - Arcadia YF-19 (first edition) (auction) - sold! https://www.ebay.com/itm/165036541538---------------------------------------I can't believe it sold for $170, and with 18 watchers, what were they really watching I wonder? - Bandai VF-1S (Chunky Monkey KO version) $32.99 (Buy It Now) https://www.ebay.com/itm/154578757789 And, I'm selling off some classic boxed G1 Transformers (KO): - G1 Optimus Prime $64.99 (auction) https://www.ebay.com/itm/154593627363 - G1 Protectobot gift set $134.99 (auction) https://www.ebay.com/itm/154593631148 I have lots of other minor Macross and Transformer related items up for sale, as well as female Microman action figures. Payment is Paypal only, and as I'm in Canada, I'll do my best to ensure that the items are packed well...even more so if you buy two or more items. And yes, I do combine shipping costs, so you'll save on that. If there's anything I've forgotten to mention, please let me know. Thanks.
  3. It's good to see a custom decal sheet being made for them. Do you have a website, or a link to other 1/60 scale Macross decal sheets available? Thanks!
  4. ...or just fix the wings permanently with glue so that they won't move anymore. Might not be an ideal solution, but at least, they won't sag when adding the missiles, or flying it around the room.
  5. I clicked on the link but there's nothing showing in terms of viewing the file of the parts in question on the website. If you have a working link to the POM material, I would take those instead. Filing parts to fit, doesn't faze me as I've worked on many Gundam kits.
  6. Speaking of customizing, I bought a used Yamato YF-19 and repainted it into a VF-19A. Almost done, need to fix the broken shoulder joint, and apply a matte clear coat to a few parts...and then I'm done. I guess I should post some pics on the board.
  7. It does indeed, thanks for posting the link!
  8. Yes, I was referring to the Arcadia version, with those metallic swing bars. I've taken it out of the box and played with the wings a bit. Not really comfortable with its design, especially when mounted missiles are involved.
  9. I wonder if someone made a 3D print for the shoulder missile pods on Shapeways? Speaking of 3D printing, there was a post a few years back of another member who made a component in place of the swing bars, so that the wings could swing back, similar to what the Yamato versions did. I just bought a used Arcadia YF-19 from Mandrake and so I'm hoping to make the same upgrade to remove those swing bars, if they have the same 'floppy wing' issue.
  10. I've never seen this upgrade kit before, but...$280 for this? I wouldn't mind getting my hands on the upper shoulder missile launcher pods. Those look really cool! What exactly is the name of this kit?
  11. Hmm...I like this. Maybe I should not sell off my black YF-19 and repaint it to this color scheme! Well, I'll need to see what the robot mode looks like too. Another YF-19 release? Ah no! I just bought a used one off Mandrake. Well, at least, I got a good deal for it. But with these re-releases and repaints, why haven't they given us the VF-19A? That's a definite must-have in my collection!
  12. Okay, so I've had these for a while, but now that I've bought an Arcadia YF-19 (it was a really tough decision), which means I can't keep these Yamato YF-19's as there's no room to display them. So, reluctantly, I have to sell them off. So for the YF-19, 3rd release (2009), I got this loose from a fellow collector. I applied decals to it and kept it on display. I'm sure the previous owner had transformed it (who wouldn't?) It comes with the instruction booklet, pilot figure, gun pod, shield, and a set of the air intake covers. Asking $165 The black 25th Anniversary YF-19 has been transformed a couple of times by myself, and it's quite the bad bot! Comes with a few accessories: couple of display stand adapters, set of air intake covers, gun pod, shield, and a set of plain black wing canards. Asking $165 Shipping within Canada and to the United States is $23, for each of them. For both of them, shipping will be $35 Payment is Paypal only.
  13. I had bought this pristine condition Yamato YF-19 in the hopes of customizing it into the VF-19A, but I was able to buy a loose one from a member here, and repainted it into a VF-19A (still have to address some minor repairs and paint touch-ups) Anyway, I've kept it in the box, just like the previous owner, but now I really don't need it anymore, so I'm putting it up for sale so that this YF-19 can find a new home. Comes complete with all accessories. Instruction booklet and decal sheet are still sealed in the plastic bag. Please check out the photos for more details. Payment is Paypal only. Send payment as gift. Asking SOLD , and shipping within Canada and to the United States is $35.00, for a total of SOLD.
  14. I've heard of these arm issues with the Yamato YF-19, but I never thought that I would be an unlucky recipient of this structural design flaw. I had repainted my YF-19 into a VF-19A, and I had one shoulder joint just fall apart when I pulled down the sleeve. I thought the other arm was immune, but that one had a fine crack. After I had reattached the good arm, the crack broke off and now I had to glue the broken part. I wonder if the latter releases have the same issues as well, such as the black 25th Anniversary release?
