  1. The custom VE-1 with boosters and gunpod is my favorite as well. Looks mean.
  2. I've ordered from them many times over the last 10 years, but I've had multiple issues with them over the previous year. Same issue as above, but with ModelCollect models instead. Pre-order that was never fulfilled and essentially is now stuck in limbo rather than them canceling it.
  3. Meteor's head looks fine, the entire thing is being blown out of proportion (get it?). I love mine and I have the other 2 on pre-order. I've always preferred Skywarp and Thundercracker, anyway. But seriously, what is wrong with the face? I am the exact opposite and I can't stand the MP-3/11 faces. Are we looking at toy vs cartoon accuracy here?
  4. What about a TV Roy VF-1S?
  5. They still plan on releasing the Tomahawk and Phalanx, right? Haven't they shown prototypes of each at some point?
  6. Is this the "best" Zaku II currently available? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071JND3WB/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A3G3EFRJI0CY8&psc=1 It's the Zaku II C-5 from the Origin series.
  7. Great. I thought it was some kind of auction site but I was mistaken. Thanks for the help.
  8. Is it easy to order stuff from Mandarake as an American? I'm only used to dealing with hlj and the likes.
  9. Something about this shade for Milia really turns me off. It's more of a dark cherry than what is seen on screen - compared to the Hi-Metal R, for example. One could argue that Max/Milia from that line are perhaps too bright/vivid, but it works for me.
  10. Love this. The simplicity of the CF scheme has always made it one of my favs. Is your VF-1S Roy from this page a custom?
  11. Anyone have a good source for the Regult, other than eBay? I'm in the US.
  12. After nearly a decade long hiatus: Hi-Metal R Monster Hi-Metal R Defender Hi-Metal R Spartan Hi-Metal R Glaug Hi-Metal R VF-1A Mass Production Hi-Metal R VF-1J Hikaru Hi-Metal R VF-1J Max Hi-Metal R VF-1J Miria Hi-Metal R VF-1S Roy Arcadia VF-1J Max Premium Format (originally had Miria pre-ordered as well at NY, lost preorder because I was out of town... might re-order) Going a little overboard, yes.
  13. failing that, my favorite image hosting site is imgur.com
  14. The answer to this is that the elites at the top do not care about us. They'll automate everything in order to maximize profits, which will result in an even more destitute populace. I wouldn't be surprised to see universal basic income rolled out in order to keep people docile, at least in the short term. Eventually they will reap what they are sowing, hopefully in my lifetime. Kind of a random place for this post, but I had to get things off my chest. Planes are really neat, though. Thanks for the interesting discussion as always.
  15. This is all well and good (I absolutely hate JJ Abrams.) - but Abrams is going to helm Episode 9, meaning he's either going to bring them back, or replace them with new boxes. The guy just needs to disappear already. As for TLJ, I don't feel strongly either way. I absolutely hated TFA, although I softened my opinion recently when I finally rewatched it. Still not a huge fan. I do like Kylo. Disappointed they didn't try and do much anything new, and instead focused on a rehash of ESB/ROTJ. In terms of ranking, I'd place it above TFA and the prequels, but below all of the OT. I agree with the above posters regarding weapon/armor/ship designs. A step down in every way from the OT thus far. I do like Ren's TIE Fighter, though. Music has been lackluster compared to the prequels/OT no question. It's salt.
  16. My favorite custom VF-1 was a VF-111 Sundowners that someone had done years ago. It looked fantastic.
  17. For anyone wondering, I can confirm that TFSource's MP-36 lacks the barrel plug. Their shipping packaging sucks, though, and my box was far below their so called "collector's grade." Nowhere near, in fact. I think it was bad enough that it caused my Megatron's face to have a slight scuff where the plastic shell pushed down onto the figure, but I can touch that up hopefully. Wouldn't purchase from them again unless absolutely necessary.
  18. Can anyone speak to the ease of removal of the orange barrel plug for MP-36 Megatron? From what I'm reading, tfsource may be easier to remove when compared to BBTS. Anyone able to speak from experience?
  19. Oh you sweet summer child. This guy eats 60+ year old MREs. One of my favorite youtube channels. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2I6Et1JkidnnbWgJFiMeHA
  20. Wow, that howling meteor looks great, definitely will pick that up. Will grab Skywarp and Thundercracker MP-11 just in case they are never made in the other mold. Thanks guys!
  21. I'm not SURE I want the original releases - I just assumed they would be better under the assumption that the mold would have less wear/tear. Which releases are regarded as the best? I'm looking for MP-10 Convoy, MP-13 Soundwave, MP-11 Starscream, and MP-11 Thundercracker. The new Megatron looks killer as well.
