ARMD Deck Swabber

ARMD Deck Swabber (2/15)



  1. I have the 1/60 Yamato version, and was just wondering how this bandai offering held up? I am a fan of Klan, and would like to display her with my other MF things, but I am curious as to the approximate scale/overall feel of the toy. If anyone can shed some light I woudl appreciate it. Pictures with the 1/72 models and the 1/60 toys would be favorite. Thanks!

    SCOOP thread!

    not sure if it has been said, but saw a pre order at HLJ for a 1/72 armored up Klan: http://www.hlj.com/product/MEG71243
  3. I POed the normal version, but I'll probably cave on the other one as well. I love me some monsters! P.S. Thanks for the new avatar image!
  4. damn I'm gonna have to get both... if its yamato size then its a 1/100. a 1/60 monster would be like an end table... sigh my wallet hates me.
  5. I can attest to this as well. I was so excited to pick up my first Frontier toy at BotCon this year, a brand new VF-25G. that excitement lasted till I actually got it out of the box. Floppy, Super parts fall off when you look at them, clunky, not at all posable... You gotta love a sniper that has to fire his gun from the hip.... I switched to the models. They are amazing. Look 100% better just out of the box with stickers. Very posable, and as long as you are not trying to toss them around the room pretty darn sturdy too. I have very few bad things to say about the models. They cost a lot less too. Personally I have no problem paying the price for an import toy...If it is worth it. I have lots of Yamato valks...yeah yeah I know some of those had issues as well, but even with those issues I still felt the price was justified. The MF toys, not at all.
  6. If you truely mean decals and not stickers I probably have a whole alto decal sheet I can send you. I use stickers, mainly because the stickers take long enough to apply, I shudder at decals. I'm pretty annoyed there are only decals for the ghosts with Luca, and have not quite got up the gumption to attempt them yet. I know the fighters would look better painted and decaled, but I am pretty impressed how they look right out of the box with stickers, and a few judicious uses of a gundam marker or two. Anyway drop me a pm and I will see I f I can hook you up. I am at work and cannot be 100% certain I can find the decal set at home until I get there this afternoon
  7. Mine looks EXACTLY like that... In my dreams Man this really makes me wish I had the time, energy, patience and talent (not necesarily in that order) to do something like that. I'm lucky to get my models built at all, much less put that much effort into it. Thanks for sharing.
  8. I was not going to get this guy, but this thread sold it. Ordered mine from overdrive, hopefully will see it soon.
  9. Basically looking for the PVC klan figure in her flightsuit. It can be open, just as long as the figure has the helmet and isn't missing any paint. Thanks
  10. My michael's crotch lock is so stupidly weak that if I want to display him in Bat mode I have to use some of those clear rubber bands you get on some toys now to hold it. very frustrating for a brand new toy that has been transformed gently a staggering 2 times. My Michael had so many issues I have now gone to the models, which apart from the eensy little stickers for the fast packs, really are pretty darn good. I do not mind paying upwards of 200 dollars for a toy, but if I do it should have A LOT less issues than my Michael does. Unless I see they have significantely improved I will just buy models. They have issues too, but I can deal with issues on something that costs what they do, and since you are building it yourself, only you are to blame for the quality control. My armored Ozma model and Armored alto Model cost around 85 dollars shipped off ebay each, so I basically get 2 for the price of one problematic DX. I truely WISH the DX line was great, I was so excited to get my shiney new Michael, only to find he was not worth anywhere near what I paid for him, and I thought I had gotten a good deal on the price since I picked him up at Botcon and did not end up having to pay shipping. Still was way to darn much money.
  11. Bleah, Oh well. I know what you mean with the models, as of now I have my Michael (w his superparts), Luca (with his superparts), armored ozma, and armored Alto all still in thier boxes... Have completed Super pack Ozma, and Super Pack Alto so far. Its not that its that difficult or even all that time consumig to buld, but it does get repetative, and those darn stickers/decals, my god some of the 'lil white stickers for the armor packs are insane! Looks Like I will just have to keep plugging away at them, perhaps they will toss out the 27 in time to break it up a bit
  12. I actually went from the 1/60 dx to the 1/72 model kits, simply because of all the problems I had with my 25-G. The models look good, and since I do not "play" with them they have proven fairly sturdy. That being siad, wow I am getting tired of building the same model and putting on all those Eensy stickers. I have started to look at the 1/100s as a solution to building a million models. My goal would be to have a normal fighter, super fighter, armored ozma and alto, and then battrods of all of them. I can't see me being able to put that many models together before I get blah on the whole thing. I have now considered 1/100 normal fighters, with the other types being models. That would save me money over the Dx, and the time of building 4 or more fighters. Right now they only have alto, ozma, and michael correct? I am really liking the Vf-19! I really hope they expand on the mac 7 valks. I would love to have a Vf-17 and all the rest of the mecha from that series. Anyway after the long ramble, what I am getting at, if displayed in fighter only mode, do the 1/100s look good/stay together on a display stand? Thanks!
  13. dumb question, but why are they gold? What does PE stand for anyway? They look great but a bit shiney...
