Skull Leader's Lackey (5/15)



  1. Mine did the exact same thing.
  2. Figmas are technically "non-scale" but they're roughly in the 1:12 size range (so around 5-6" tall). Sharon here is just shy of 2.5" tall.
  3. I do! phillips hue bulbs. They make me feel like I live in the future.
  4. I dunno, I feel like my Alexa is just a few rogue upgrades from locking my doors and cooking me in the night with my thermostat.

    It is, i've got a shapeways store if you'd like one. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/quin-s-bin
  6. Hi folks, don't know how much of an interest there'd be in here but I thought i'd post it up anyway just in case - I recently finished up a 3D modeling project to make a Sharon Apple Virturoid that would be in scale with Bandai's figuarts figures (Sheryl Nome, Freyja, etc...), since I figured they'd never make one themselves (after all, she's "just a box"). It's a fun little display piece that can sit with figuarts figures or be a part of a Macross Plus display. If anyone wants one I've got it up on my Shapeways store. (If this is the wrong place to put this I'll move it, wasn't sure if the scratchbuild or sales section was more appropriate since I'm not selling any of these directly. I'm not looking to make mad $$ on these things, just wanted to share the fruits of my labors ) Shapeways store: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/quin-s-bin Phots by the incomparable Ian Reid - http://hardreturn.net

    Macross figures

    I got really excited when Bandai started announcing they were doing Figuarts of Macross singers, but I knew in my heart of hearts that they'd never do my favorite one... ... So I made her myself! Figuarts/Figma scaled Sharon Apple. It was a fun project to remind myself how to use Maya. The shapeways quality of even the basic prints was also surprisingly good (she looks quite grainy in closeups but it's much less noticeable in person).
  8. Yeah, it was a nuisiance. I'm glad they didn't bother with those hinges on the 31. Thanks!
  9. Got mine today. The transformation (granted, I've watched videos so I'm not going in blind) doesn't seem as bad as videos and such seem to imply, although going to Gerwalk is definitely more of a pain than going to battroid. I think it looks better with the wings in normal fighter position when in Gerwalk, frankly. Also, this thing is like 80% legs. It's literally just the nose of the jet with arms hanging off when in Gerwalk. Crazy!
  10. Hi folks. I've got a DX YF-30 up on ebay right now for anyone who's interested at (I'd like to think) a non-horrific scalperiffic price. Some minor damage - one of the fold out hinges cracked when unclipping the arms, so I wouldn't recommend using them anymore (they're totally unnecessary, anyway), but otherwise it's in great condition. http://www.ebay.com/itm/192144082724
  11. I highly doubt that, since it's still widely available. Or maybe you're just making fun of me . All I know is that I PO'd (and paid for) this thing seven months ago and the retailer keeps insisting it's not actually out yet. Sadly I can't read chinese or maybe FMT's weibo account would shed some light on things; http://weibo.com/u/5310763972
  12. When I inquired with the vendor I had PO'd this from (Toyercity), they replied that it hasn't actually been mass released yet and that fansmaketoys recalled/stopped most shipments to try and fix a lot of the problems with the first batch that went out. I don't know if that's actually true or not seeing as there seem to be quite a lot on ebay - maybe that's stores just trying to dump their first batch releases, who knows?
  13. Long shot, because I don't know why you would under normal circumstances, but has anyone opened up the lower leg to get at the spring mechanism? It appears that on one of my 19's legs, the spring was put in backwards because the filler panel (the thin one, that goes up the midle when you extend the upper part of the leg panel) just droops down into the leg when I pull out the foot. There are two screws present that I've removed but it doesn't seem to free up anything and It looks like the rest of the screws are hidden behind covers. EDIT: To clarify, I'm talking about this narrow panel here (sorry to steal your pic, Actar) There's zero spring tension on it at all, the long part of the spring is just flopping loose inside the leg.
  14. Yes. Unfortunately, no Theoretically, sure. Unfortunately, beyond just the shoulder triangles there are other, structural parts of the CF VF-171 that are also made of the faulty plastic, like in the chest hinges and in the knees, and these parts are covered by screw covers, glue, and rivets, making swapping those parts likely a nightmarish experience. You'd honestly be better off just keeping the Alto or whatever stock and enjoying it as-is.
