  1. English subtitles this time @sqidd! and OOF on the QC issues. I can feel this guys pain.
  2. I was wondering how you were going to display your Nu Gundam. Thanks for sharing. The Unicorn isn't transformed quite right. I'm sure he's super fiddly though so your call if you want to fix. Amazon seems to have decent enough reference pics for you to look at and compare. https://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Hobby-Unicorn-Gundam-Model/dp/B00O3RUFQ0/ref=asc_df_B00O3RUFQ0/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309830256687&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4349427885989403465&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9032188&hvtargid=pla-439647228466&psc=1
  3. The Exia Devise just showed up in my email from SureThingToys.com $239.99 at Surethingtoys.com https://surethingtoys.com/products/bandai-metal-build-gundam-devise-exia?utm_campaign=emailmarketing_122123452521&utm_medium=email&utm_source=shopify_email
  4. Amazing work you put into that. It's really impressive!
  5. The quality of the Steel Legend Kshatriya was top notch. I hope more companies come out with 1/60 sized metal builds.
  6. Interesting. Maybe they'll have an article in there that takes a deep dive into why they keep releasing the same product over and over and just change the accessories or give it a new paint job. Sometimes both even! How crazy is that!
  7. Shouldn't be a problem. The armor doesn't fit on a VF-1D only.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    What's wrong with the 31AX? This is the second time I've read something about this.. Is there a thread somewhere I'm too lazy to look for myself that I can read up on?
  9. Thank you @takatoys. I wish I had seen these earlier when I was still building it. Instead, I tried Hachette's method of sanding down the landing gear doors and that didn't help all that much. I'll save your video so if/when I have time to take apart my VF-1 and fix this. Also, since I'm lazy, I'm hoping that the Strike Set comes with a new controller that doesn't open/close the landing gear at all and instead gives us a different automated sequence to mess around with. Edit: I was able to see your movie on my phone the first time. Now that I'm trying to save it I can't seem to get to it anymore.
  10. Fantastic work! I wish I had been brave enough to panel line and paint mine. I love how you got your landing gear to work properly. Mine still catches when opening and closing. It’s really annoying.
  11. I went with Luke Light and got a V-Shape bracket and diffuser. It worked pretty well but you'll end up paying more for lighting than the detolf itself. There isn't a whole lot of room in a Detolf to have your figures in dynamic poses but you might be able to to make it work with acrylic risers and flight stands.
  12. Yeah. I don’t see any incentive to buy this if you already have a SoC version. There just isn’t enough here to differentiate it. Perhaps if they weathered it or made a legendary defender version I might consider it but as is it’s a pass for me. I’m happy for anyone in the market for a classic Voltron though. If you hold out long enough you might be able to get any of these (Blirzway, ThreeZero, or SoC) at a sale price. by the way. ThreeZero is also dipping into the Robotech (Harmony Gold licensed) market. I hope these two products aren’t missteps for them because their Robo-Dou line is fantastic.
  13. Interesting. I've been really happy with my Patlabor and Shin Getter Robo-Dou with size, presence, diecast content, tightness of joints and articulation. They all come with a basic stand and limited accessories. Bandai's SoC has been great for number of accessories, a stand or accessory holder either built into a stand or separate and great name plate. They have great attention to detail but metal content and articulation are a bit lacking to me. I'm not that happy with the recent Getter Arc or Getter G as they contain more plastic than metal. Also, while SoC Voltron has been the definitive version of toy thus far, I've been disappointed with how floppy it's legs are due to how much diecast the Blue and Yellow lions have. I don't think you could pose SoC Voltron as well as what I'm seeing from from ThreeZero and have it hold the pose.
  14. There's so many Gundams in the UC universe that I would love a Metal Build version of. Zeta, Double Zeta, Sentinel, Stardust Memory, Alex NT-1. I'd eat all that up with no hesitation. Even GMs , Zakus, and Doms. I think those are the only ones I'd buy multiple variants of since they had legitimate specific purpose variants to begin with. Please, no more obscure manga crap to justify repaints/reiterations of the same mold.
  15. Voltron need's his 'O' face. Some of these ThreeZero poses don't look right without his 'O' Face.`
  16. On a positive note, Bandai is making it easier for me to break my toy collecting addiction so.. thanks Bandai? It wasn't too hard to ignore the last three recent Metal Build releases (Astrea Type-X, Crossbone Full Cloth Ghost, and now Red Astray Dragonlettersalad)
  17. But if we follow Bandai's current release logic, they still have to release 5 variants of Dynames before we see anything new in the 00 series. I'm not willing to hold out that long.
  18. Thank you! I was really looking forward to your thoughts on this! Now that I have it in hand, I think it's fantastic figure with great articulation and light gimmicks, however, I can't seem to get over the colors CCSToys used. It comes off as more orange/red and brown/red than hot rod red/dark red especially when I compare it to the other Shin Getters I have. Is it just me? Am I the only one bothered by it?
  19. Isn't the battery compartment under the right arm and the activation switches under the left arm? I forget since I haven't messed with it in awhile.
