  2. So you're saying your valkyries are currently living in a bigger home than you?
  3. Cool shot. And me too on all those characters.
  4. No battle-damaged parts. Didn't know there was a battle-damaged Tekkaman figure out there.
  5. Bought a Tekkaman Blade figure from some maker I've never heard of before. I it's a pretty nice figure, if a bit on the pricier side.
  6. Saw this Tekkaman Blade figure for preorder months ago from some manufacturer I've never heard of. Took a chance on it and I'm glad I did. Huge and well-built and quite a lot of diecast. I'm talking almost Hot Toys Iron Man level of diecast content. He's as big as a 1/48 DX VF-1. Only one gripe: who the hell designed the battery compartments? It's incredibly hard to get the batteries in, and god help you if you want to remove them. Truly a Sisyphean ordeal.
  7. Someone asked ages ago why there's a guitar pick in my pictures of disassembled valkyries. That's why. Fantastic shots BTW @MKT
  8. It's smaller than the 1/60 version.
  9. For those who don't want a gunpod on their Angel Birds: have you tried removing it?
  10. I was also on the fence about this release due to the aforementioned reasons. But it was decided for me because I have a standing favor with my friend in Japan to always order 2 of every 1/48 TWE and I neglected to mention I wasn't sure I wanted this one. Whoops.
  11. Three reissues if you count the Hi Metal Regret VF-1J. Skipping all three so I guess that's more money for my next trip. Same here!
  12. Yes it has more markings printed on than previous iterations of the 29. It's on par with the rest of the Delta line marking-wise.
  13. I think he meant that the current YF-19 started development at Yamato before they went under, and the work was passed on to Arcadia. But yes it is a 100% new mold from the original 2006 Yamato YF-19.
  14. I was wondering what figure that was (later posts answered it).
  15. Yep. Surprised no one has complained about the 0S colors being "wrong" since it also looks different without all the texturing and weather effects from the anime CGI
  16. Nothing like taking a sleek fighter and slapping a bunch of crap on it until it looks like a flying brick. Not that I necessarily dislike the armor packs, but yeah it looks more like something that belongs in the Gundam universe with its slower turn-based combat system.
  17. Ohhh don't know why I never tried that. Buckling is definitely an issue once you're at the 100+ valk mark. I'm going to put all those discarded Amazon boxes to use. Thanks for the tip!
  18. I prefer to have the actual toy in hand to make a worthwhile evaluation of the color and anything else.
