  1. I was able to buy the pegged swingbars from VF5SS on Shapeways and now looking for any spare shoulder replacement parts. I just need one. Please PM if you have any whole parts of halves. Thanks, Bobby
  2. Rare transformable jet watch for the Macross junkie... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1983-Transformers-Takara-Go-Bots-Jet-Watch-BRAND-NEW/173583528633?_trkparms=aid%3D555018%26algo%3DPL.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D8756a7ba152c4dfe905635651c9876a8%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D6%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D323619934296%26itm%3D173583528633&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
  3. so....slightly off topic, but I was at the pet store with my kids just looking around and turned the corner and saw these two birds just chilling in their cage and thought, "Hey, that looks like..." well, you know what I thought.
  4. Same here...it really grew on me as well and I'm very much looking forward to it!
  5. This is probably obvious but just a tip for searching on any of these proxy buyers. You will discover (if you haven't already) that english won't work unless it's a call sign or model number ( for ex. AV-98 ). You can use Wikipedia or anime database since they usually have the Katakana or Kanji spelling for the series at the very beginning of the entry so just copy and paste in search bar of your preferred proxy buyer and "voila!" ...hundreds if not literally thousands of results for acquiring your favorite toy/series/mech/book/etc and...
  6. Indeed. Like they might have modeled it after this shot... In the meantime it's so big it makes for some nice shelf art
  7. A really cool lego build (collaged from brickshelf)...
  8. It's a licensed 12" sofubi Garland produced in 2007 by Marmit (©AIC). It's poseable at the hips, waist, arms, and head, has white pearl metallic and silver metallic paint, matte brown and black paint, finished in a gloss red body with removable head armor. Note: I did a lot of extra detailing (chrome, panel lines, etc.) so it does not come this way. [ [ [ "Operator 7-G...please respond!" ] ] ]
  9. Smooth, fast, and easy transaction with warrhead Thanks!
  10. I've had mine for a few weeks now and after transforming it several times recently noticed tiny paint chipping on the (top) diagonal edges of the white, chest piece The only time that piece is in contact with anything is in bike mode (after you flip the hands around the revealed clasping mechanism to hold the front suspension in place grab hold of the sides of the chest piece). Yamato's use of a magnet here was clever (but flimsy) and Arcadia's is much sturdier in comparison. But Arcadia's chest piece is a painted part that is being used for direct clamping to keep it solid in bike mode so chipping can happen. Just be careful when going in and out of this mode and maybe it won't chip on you.
  11. Hmmm...always wanted to completely dip a toy into a bath of future floor polish

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Thanks for the suggestion and images. I just tried transforming it leaving the head fully extended and completely out of the way to test if this might be the issue, but unfortunately it still gaps on the port side. In direct comparison my VF-31 J, F, & C all are dead on in alignment after a couple transformations. Good news is it's gotten to the point where it doesn't bother me anymore...I am just glad to have the 31A!

    ^ Powder coat does come in crinkle (the grainy texture) but you can also go powdercoat in flat, matte, satin, gloss, semi, heavy gloss, etc. and it is super durable.
