    Cantonese.  First 7:30 was introduction about the anime.  The the designer (and owner?) of POSE+ transformed the unit.  His points:

    He had some ideas that he couldn't implement on the ES Gokin Baikanfu due to SD scale, now he can.

    Baikanfu size is set for the price limit, then the rest scaled with it.

    Both smaller unit do 180 on the knee joints so they can swing forward as hip joints of the larger unit.

    Tips on combining - make sure the legs of the big unit facing forward, not angled.  Make sure the coaxial joints of the smaller and bigger units line up.

    Posable hands are hard to perfect.  Recommend using fixed pose hand for holding sword if long term display.

  2. Base on the video review:

    New one have a flat coating, old one is much more shinny.  The red difference between painted and plastic red part is more obvious on the new one.

    New cockpit glass is more transparent, still have a light purple hue on it.

    New one have replaceable head fin and come with two fins.  The new fin is a bit longer and pointier.

    New one have much stronger wing engine joint.

    New one have a better landing gears lock.  (Already used in other YF-29 releases)

    Stronger hip ball joint (but not clicky like the 31), tightened by 3 screws instead of 1.

    Wrist forward joint is stronger.

    Cheat swing bars have clicky part for better B mode locking.

    Head cannons are hard plastic.

  3. Finally got mine.  Any tips on how to loosen the super tight shoulder joint?

    And I got assembly error on the hip bar.  The error don't affect anything other than keep the leg from perfectly pointing forward in soldier mode.   I tried removing that screw but the part still stay tightly together.  Have any one disassembled this thing?



  4. Before anyone get too excited, search "hachette collection tomcat" on ebay and look at the price..

    From what I can tell, their business model for these large model are subscription service, and they mail a set of pieces to you every week or every month.  It may take 50+ sets to complete the model.  Some initial sets will be sold in magazine rack in e.g. 7-11 in Japan at low price to entice customers.

    @CF18Hold up... is that a picture of your collection... AT  WORK? I think I know who's desk I'm going to raid on my last day before I quit or get laid off!


    What kind of stand are you using to prop up your VF-31E and J in that picture?

    Yes, at work.


    Stand came from the gray market thread:

    With armor, it can still stand on the legs if the ground is not too slippery.  The elbows can hold the weights only at certain angles.  The add-on clip on the back don't seems to be useful - it will just fly off if the big cannon's weight applies on it.

    Haven't try to transform it yet.
