  1. About 30 secs in your question is answered unless I'm hearing the FN Rep wrong. "One or the other; both will cause a malfunction." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YB_D5RGDfuY
  2. Awesome clone, given legal issues! I haven't attempted any clone builds, yet; I always get sidetracked with what else I could build for the money. Was planning an A2 clone, that went sideways and turned into an "updated" version of what an A2 might be today: flat-top upper with detachable carry handle, A.R.M.s gas block/front folding sight, Rock River Arms A2 free float tube with Magpul furniture gutted to fit around it. Presently at a cross roads on current build; 10.5" pistol or just get the stamp and go SBR in .300 blackout. Patience has never been a virtue of mine.
  3. A quick youtube search would have given you your answer. No, the weapon cannot be double loaded; it would create a double feed if the bolt could even move at all. The magazine well inserts at sharper angle to place the rounds at roughly the same place as the belt would. The whole point behind the M249s is that if belt ammo is expended the LMG is not out of the fight.
  4. Mikumo and therefore Junna is supposed to stand out from others, hence the lead vocalists. As far as her "drowning" out the rest, that is the show and the studio; from what I've seen from concert footage Junna's voice when joined with the others doesn't overpower but instead lends to the overall harmony that makes the groups foundation. As the lead vocalists we are going to be bound to hear her more or seeming to overpower the others as this is the design, rarely are all 5 singing at once. It isn't until we hear the songs that are designed to highlight the others of the group that she tends to melt into the background on CD/show. The only footage I've seen of their DYRL cover, Junna is emotional prior to the song even beginning and when her solo comes she actually falters; didn't detract from the performance in anyway.
  5. Was curious as to whether anyone here has purchased DX-9's "seekers" sets yet and how they might compare scale wise to HMR or the Toynami line. Always wanted Roy or Max to shut Starscream up as a kid, since Jetfire couldn't get it done in the show, I'll go ahead and add Dirge to the list as well! Pics, links that show comparable scale much appreciated if you have them/know of them.
  6. Roid is up for presale on HLJ.com, Sept. release.
  7. 1. Yes the OVA, is there yet another version? By dramatic, I don't mean changes the story but instead adds to it, even the M1 Garands being used in the celebration. 2. Sharon showed signs of awakening before the neurochip, the fire and phone calls in particular, she specifically had to track down Guld's car phone,not to mention Isamu,who wasn't even on base. So even while incomplete she was becoming aware and one way to get an emotion program is to achieve a physical living form. 3. Sorry I didn't mean to imply Sharon had planned out the Mikumo scenario; that was Roid's doing, though Lady M is quite aware of the Protoculture Ruins. Mikumo/Sharon mirroring each other; Mikumo's hair style and facial bone structure is not much different from one of Sharon's preferred images. Both have had the most commanding voice presences of any of the female Idols, ability to project not range. Sharon was created with Song/Music being the basis of her existence, oddly enough in Delta Mikumo says at least twice, "Music is purpose/life". Even if how the mind-control/hypnosis is different both are defeated essentially the same way, our hero just happens to hear "another" voice, helping them break the hold of hypnosis/control. IF Sharon could have escaped, given Myung's last few sentences to Sharon, saying her heart was in the right place but her actions all wrong, I instead see Sharon trying to make amends not repeat history.
  8. Guess I've just missed it, all apparently, still not the Spidey I know, regardless of the reboot. While it makes sense as to Tony building the suit for Peter in the cinematic universe, it takes away from how genuinely smart Peter was. As I've said, I stopped reading the books just before things started getting really askew, to me. Have roughly kept up by browsing or conversations with other fans who are more current over the years. I fondly recall Spiderman, Amazing, Spectacular and Web of; I know I'm no longer the targeted market just haven't adjusted even after all this time, damn nostalgia. Aunt May is indeed looking younger however all but the bottom are qualified given their actual age; I doubt even Miss Tomei's head of hair is still natural without a few strands of wisdom at minimum. Classic Aunt May just rocked it.
  9. I know the general consensus is that Lady M is Minmay due to the photo of her in Frontier and the little tidbit in Delta about Megaroad 1; I know most here don't want a generations show, personally on the fence depending on the how its achieved. Just got my M+ movie version, didn't realize all the little yet dramatic differences in the two, until coming here. Anyway, If Sharon can run an island wide concert, fly the ghost and a Macross class ship, hold a conversation with Myung while captive, the list goes on, all this at roughly the same time. How is it that she couldn't figure out to upload herself elsewhere far, far off, even after the warning of how "self protective" her emotion program was? Patiently awaiting a way to return. Lady M(yung) was very involved in the development of Mikumo, who just happened to essentially do the exact same thing as Sharon only on a much larger scale.
  10. The figure above; I own all the Marvel films, yes, even the crappy VHS Captain America, so while I've seen Civil War, while the cowl and pants seem the same the hoodie is a late add on I believe. I have no further insight into whats going to actually transpire in the film past the trailers already released, different perspective, but that is it. I'm not so sure Tony will take the suit away from Peter and he will then have to rely on the original; I think Peter will realize Tony is tracking him with the suit and ditch it in order to prove himself worthy. Tony is too much Big Brother for Spidey who was traditionally only a reserve member of the Avengers. I think Peter will add the web-gliders with the help of "Death Star" friend, pointless addition, the friend not the webbing. This Cinematic Universe has been great about dropping not so subtle and subtle hints on where its going once there is no more Tony and Original Capt. Since Sony actually owns the rights to Spidey this would allow them their own shoot-offs, should they be desperate enough to go the Spider-Clone/Spider-Island/Spiderverse route.
  11. Is this supposed to be their take or play rather on The Scarlet Spider? Are they really going to open up that box? Isn't this what helped bring Marvel to its knees in the mid 90's; I know I quit reading all the titles just before they started it. Just give us Kraven's Last Hunt already!
  12. Papa McMannis passed on in the second film, just after taking out Peter Fonda's character so not an issue at all. The second film was centered on his origin story and the betrayal that set everything in motion. There are several things that Hollywood and humanity should leave be, unfortunately that is not in our nature.
  13. Both Scripts are finished! Two, I say, one for the 3rd film. The other for the upcoming prequel t.v. season(s). New brothers will be found for the t.v. series; however, other cast members from the films will make appearances, some as those we know, others will take on new roles to help build on their original rolls. The film will have the brothers we all know and love back and picking up where they were left at. Simply befriend Boondock Saints on F.B. and Troy Duffy(creator) has several videos explaining what to expect and where the funding is coming from and its not "crowd" funded.
  14. Yes, the reincarnation of the Hero's was a stretch, but far from a big one in the world of Faerun. In his defense he had a whole other trilogy in mind when WoTC decided to do the Spellplauge and he managed to bring it all about in what is currently the end. I will agree that both Bruenor and Drizzt had way too many enchanted items in the end, though given the enemies they were fighting by that point it was also warranted. Bob, tried his damnest to keep Drizzt and company "real" and not make them chosen's of the Gods, Catti-brie being the only exception, unfortunately when your characters are literally the #1 face of the whole fantasy world, stories must be written so money can continue to pour in. Of course the irony of that being that Drizzt was first supposed to be a "teammate" and not the star and his whole conception was thought up in less than 5 mins; thirty years later he is the most recognized fantasy character of the Realms.
  15. Not sure if anyone here reads any of the "Realms" novels but if you do and have been curious as to why no new ones have been released, well "Bob" R.A. Salvatore has confirmed that Wizards of The Coast has not renewed his contract for any further novels "currently" or any of the writers for that matter. Apparently Wizards is investing big into a Forgotten Realms movie with Warner Bros, this is exciting news for any Realms fan but really exciting for me as a die-hard "Hero's of the Hall" fan. The movie will be much different than Peter Jackson's LOTR, the D&D movie will: Be set in the Forgotten Realms Will NOT have characters teleported from our world Focused on an ensemble group, "taking a Guardians of the Galaxy" tone. That last part in particular is of interest, as having read several Realms novels the only troupe I'm aware of to have that kind of feel consistently while keeping things serious at the same time is the "Hero's of the Hall". Given that all other D&D films have flopped, rightly so I might add, is history doomed to repeat itself? I don't think so if they pick the right material/characters. Besides seeing Drizzt Do'Urden and company on screen I would love to see Paul S. Kemp's assassin's come to life but that whole series would need an R rating to do it real justice. Here's hoping to a movie trailer soon with a set of purple glowing eyes, then a quick sound and flash of an X being slashed through the air by twin scimitars, followed by the roar of a 600 lb panther!
  16. That was the only chink in its armor to me as well; though I don't know what would have shown up on screen in space while still separating themselves from the VF-25's and VF-171's. In D.D.'s paint scheme it would be absolutely sinister. The main weapon needs to shrink some though.
  17. Not to my knowledge; just amazed that Hasegawa made sure to produce all variants of the 25 but never did a 27. They jumped at the SV's from Zero and Delta but to my knowledge there is no "fighter" kit for the 27 anywhere; would love to have at least one in the collection. Not to fond of buying another Bandai kit and leaving it in fighter only, while I love the actual engineering aspect of those kits, I don't want my fighters showing their tale-tell transformations.
  18. He wasn't always the Baddy; he was actually good-guy in at least one movie, Rapid Fire with Brandon Lee. For some reason I can hear him saying "Come get some you scum sucking pukes!" paraphrasing not his actual line, then goes BOOM; just can't bring the mental picture to the forefront. Original Red Dawn; Boom goes the tank!
  19. I wondering that myself.
  20. Since Mikumo is on Roid's, Molder's would be the defacto since Messer was her original escort. Where is CHUCK MUSTANG, dammit?
  21. Just finished up the new to me (2013) release of Harlock Space Pirate; probably the best 3D cgi film I've seen to date, certainly put the newest Appleseed to shame. Far more story driven than action, though it doesn't disappoint when it comes to "battleship" battles! I so want the latest version of the Arcadia now! Harlock's immortality/penence is explained and then given a twist. Sadly no space Wolf's (fighters).
  22. He was busy during the American Revolution; taking and then losing most of Europe at the time, if he was who he says he was. I wouldn't have corrected him!
  23. I see a G36/AR mutant; G36 makes up the receivers and carry handle (on an SBR, really) with AR parts on either end most likely making it D.I.; trying to decide if they meant for the forward assist or the shell deflector and just got confused.
  24. My daughter recently asked me to sit down and watch "The Wind Rises" with her. The first ten minutes were/are a little childish; though that is the exact vibe the film is shooting for at that point. Long story short; this is the story of Jiro Horikoshi and the development of the Mitsubishi A5M and A6M Zero. Found it very intriguing from the historical perspective and getting a view of what Pre-WW2 Japan was like; the average person's view of the government at the time. Sorry but no, "Tora, Tora, Tora!" but there are explosions. Currently switching between late night runs on the Wangan (Midnight Wangan) and Togue in the mountains (Initial D).
  25. Nice! Just finished my HG Sinanju; regretting I just didn't go RG.
