  1. Not yet, although I am looking forward to seeing how it all works. Just trying to be patient until Starscream's release.
  2. You know, I forgot about the IDEAs vote. I was also hoping that something like Classic Castle or Space would win that vote. When Bionicle won, my interest faded and I haven't been following it at all. I guess we might get lucky if TLG designs some new pieces for their humanoid figures that can then be repurposed in mech sets but I'm not holding my breath for something that substantial. It does seem that Lego is using Creator to revisit Classic designs, and the 3-in-1 branding is a fun call back to those side builds that appeared on older Lego sets. We've had some sci-fi themed sets mixed
  3. The photos look great and are tempting me to get two copies to build the castle with the tower. One thing I hope that this 3-in-1 design avoids is the larger wall pieces from more modern castle sets. It will be cool if this uses smaller brick elements in the walls and turrets like the Classic Lego sets. Edit to add my vote for more Classic Space too. It may be a fool's hope, but I keep thinking that TLG may be holding some nifty surprises in reserve for their anniversary celebration.
  4. Less than an hour, even. There are some interesting potential add ons in the poll that was sent out. I’m hoping they are able to get the logistics working on more than one of them.
  5. Yeah, it's really cool. So far, the series is based on the Grisha Trilogy of YA Fantasy Novels written by Leigh Bardugo. I'm curious to see if Netflix will pull in any of the other related tales. I like how she uses the backdrop of Russian culture and traditions to create her unique setting, which sets it apart from the norm which uses the backdrop of Northwestern European cultures (such as Norse traditions and mythology). Fun fact: Leigh is involved in the adaptation and actually appears on screen as a character.
  6. Yeah. I really like how ThreeZero is invested in this line. Unit 00 is a first day pre-order for me too, and I'm curious to see where ThreeZero will take the line next. I'm also curious about why things went quiet with the Metal Builds. especially given how Bandai released 01 and 02, eschewed 00 for a repaint of 01, and then nothing... The Dynaction Evas are a bit too much for me, but I'm happy that they have an audience.
  7. Personally, I like it when writers and creatives push traditional genre norms and find a non-standard mix that works. It's no easy task, so this teaser gets zero humbugs from me. Honestly, the hybrid 'fairy tale' creatures remind me of those from the network show Grimm that finished its run a few years back. Now Grimm had a completely different mood but I thought it was a lot of fun so I'll give this show a chance based on that proximity. If it really grabs me, I'll have to seek out the source like I did with The Expanse, The Umbrella Academy, and Shadow and Bone.
  8. Yeah. It was fun while it lasted. But who knows, maybe Takara has another Jetfire/Skyfire design in the works? That wouldn't surprise me either.
  9. Huh. I like what Three-Zero is doing, but I'm not collecting their Transformers. Anyway, if all that setup was for this particular Jetfire release, then all I can say is, "Well played."
  10. Yep. Check my post above. I pulled the head from my DX 1J the other day because I was curious about the ball joint itself. IIRC, other members have noted this feature in the other DX VF-1 thread too. Also, @jenius writes about it in his comprehensive review over on anymoon.
  11. It's been some years since I've had any 1/48 Yamato Valks in my collection but Bandai's 1/48 DX uses a ball joint to connect its 1J head to the Valkyrie's neck. The neck piece is then attached to the DX's skeletal sub-structure using a more permanent connection. That means the head will be easy to switch out with the new one included in the DX armour upgrade. Probably not so easy for a Yamato swap, though.
  12. If you don't want to navigate the SV-51 thread, just check out the review that @jenius posted. He does a good job highlighting the differences. Also, his video review of Arcadia's Ivanov release is included within. http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=14588
  13. I'm good. The site was acting flaky when the VIP set finally went up, but I was able to get one. Anyway, I'm waiting for the Ulysses to arrive before I build the Discovery. It should be here tomorrow as long as shipping isn't delayed.
