  1. Man, you remove all the screws from a toy and it just falls apart. How cheap! (Ready to apply @Anasazi37's excellent decals)

    And an integrated heat shield! Parts-swapping is lame!
  3. So did anyone who entered the Amiami lotto for the Max YF-29 PO ever hear anything back?

    Cool. It's a downgrade from the Arcadia version, but I'll still get one. Knowing Bandai's history of releases, we'll get a Shin VF-0A and Nora Sv-51 after this. Then they'll skip the 0D and Ivanov.
  5. Yeah I might have to follow your lead and repaint her to a more proper red.
  6. I haven't bought from LP due to me being a cheapskate who refuses to pay above MSRP for anything, but reading everyone's comments gives me a serious NY vibe about them. Excellent summary of the problems with the 31AX. It really is a step backwards in many ways from the VF-31. It's the reason why I've declined to get more than one of each, despite my long standing habit of buying multiples of many valks. It's just not worth the substantial price hike over the old 31. Thankfully the current weakness of the yen is making these a good deal less expensive.
  7. It's a combination of Flory's wash, dry brushing, and mechanical pencil. I had to go a little heavier than I did on the YF-29 because of Bandai's incredibly cheap tampo printing which rubbed off in a couple of areas while I was handling it, forcing me to cover up some fixed areas. Was able to zip through that part in a single afternoon at least. Yeah I like the very unique head unit on the YF-25. It's very different from other valkyries. The RVF-25 has a similarly unique design that's a departure from the usual mono-eye or visor look (not that there's anything wrong with those!).
  8. I see she's on the workbench. Gonna fix her up?
  9. I'm disappointed that we never got a Megumi nendoroid.
  10. They were dug out of storage recently along with my destroids. They probably did originally come in a similarly beaten box though.
  11. This is all @505thAirborne's fault. After fixing up the DX 1D I had an orange valk itch, so I fixed up the old YF-25. Nothing special, just the usual quick and dirty fixes. Starting point Finished
  12. Technically non-scale but it's around 1/144 scale, maybe 1/170? Not a big toy but it's very poseable. The missile hatches open and the cockpit can be opened to reveal Klan sitting inside.
  13. Found my other Tomahawk and a couple of Defenders! Guess I'll only need to order one Tomahawk from Arcadia to make a squadron.
  14. 45000 yen for the bundle is not a bad price at the current rates. Because of the favorable exchange rates I went ahead and ordered a few high yen items that I've been wanting but was on the fence about. Now's the time!
  15. Star Trek V is enjoyably bad. Into Darkness and The Motionless Picture are the only two Trek movies I can't rewatch. TMP because it's so damn boring and ID for just being so incredibly stupid and bad, but not in the "so bad it's good" way that The Final Frontier is. I never liked the Kelvin cast. Pine-Kirk is an entitled and arrogant SOB but without the actual awesomeness that made Kirk great. Quinto-Spock is a goddamn lunatic. Ethan Pecs is a much better Spock (so far at least). Anyway, I'm liking SNW so far. I think it's the best live action Trek show since DS9 (which isn't a particularly high bar). I'm glad to see that the whiny & pedantic self-appointed arbiters of "real Trek" who treat TOS as some kind of holy writ appear to be in the minority regarding SNW.
  16. That looks way better than the HMR version!
  17. What kind of fixes did Arcadia make?
  18. Considering they charge above MSRP for everything, you don't think they could afford to buy shipping boxes.
  19. It's a feature, not a bug! Ill-fitting wing tabs just means its even easier to transform from fighter to battroid! No more having to spend hours pulling out overly tight tabs!
