  1. Good for dry dirt and nothing else.
  2. This doesn't match anything I have, except for maybe the one Zillion statue, so it would probably have to be relatively inexpensive for me to get this one... which is not going to happen.
  3. I was assuming 1/15 or 1/18, based on... well, not much of anything, I suppose.
  4. The old toys of this did include those, which was the only way to get the weapon. I honestly did like those too (I've thought the sidecar look to be pretty cool, ever since my old Revell model of the GI Joe RAM when I was a kid), and I hope that the Tri-Charger not only actually gets released this time (unlike when CMs teased it), but does well enough to justify a couple more items in the line. I'm not a fan of the look of the wheels on the side either, but functionally they're needed there for the third mode (thus the "Tri" in the name).
  5. Congrats, and great find! I lucked into finding the full set of all of them for around $60 a couple years ago, all NIB, and have to say I love them decorating my display shelves. The Hargun is front and center in my display, because, like you said, it's the only mass-produced one, and a nice contrast to the others. Still haven't gotten around to building any of my resin kits of the rarer ones, though.
  6. Thank you for posting this. I hadn't seen any of this before. Does anyone know if there is any confirmation that the Toynami accessories are different (i.e. less included) than the B2Five ones? I seem to remember Japanese listings including accessories that were not explicitly shown in the BBTS pre-order, but may be misremembering.
  7. Thank you. I was completely blanking on the company. Sadly, I actually disliked the Megahouse ones. It's funny with partsforming... I actively disliked it with MegaHouse, but others where this is like 1 piece of partforming don't bother me so much.
  8. Agreed! If you can swing getting two of each, you'll be happier keeping one in each mode. They're engineered really nicely, and gorgeous to look at (they very much fit my personal tastes, style-wise), but these are similar to Arcadia products, in that there is solid engineering, they're decently entertaining to transform, but they're not "toys" and WILL have some weak spot break eventually. My one hope for the new Toynami 1/28th ride armors (having a brain lapse and forgetting the actual manufacturer) is that they're designed more to be toys, where you can absentmindedly transform them repeatedly and not worry about anything breaking. I wish Yamato had tackled these like they did the Motoslaves.
  9. Preorder up on BBTS https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/184788
  10. Thank you. Just deciding if I should wait for a BBTS preorder, since the last ones were $199 on there (with essentially free shipping, considering how much I keep in my Pile of Loot) and I don't mind waiting a little, as long as I get it.
  11. For those who have preordered from HLJ, any ideas on shipping costs to the USA? I haven't ordered from them in years, and don't remember. Thanks.
  12. The one book (I believe) that I'm still waiting on. Thank you for the info!
  13. This is really great work. Nice job so far! What are you using for references for it? I've been toying with the idea of doing this myself, in SolidWorks, but there are barely any concept art pics for this (which might be one it didn't look too consistent frame to frame in the animation).
  14. While I do have a sport reserved for one in my display case... I have to assume that Sentinel is more likely to milk the existing mold for a couple Dark (Shadow) toys first, before investing in a 100% new item.
  15. I use the Comixology or Kindle app on my phone (Note 10+), but that's usually too small for me for some comics, so they I plug my phone into my 13" Huion tablet and read on that.
  16. A few questions for anyone who might be more in the know than I am: 1) Has anyone heard any updates on the Arcadia Hargun? Seems quiet from them on that front, since pre-Covid. 2) I came across the military coloring Garland on HLJ, supposedly a preorder due now, but don't recall seeing anything anywhere else, ever. Does anyone know if this is anything other than HLJ jumping the gun? https://www.hlj.com/1-24-scale-megazone-23-die-cast-model-garland-autonomous-army-color-ver-acamrk821566 3) Does anyone have any leads for buying an Arcadia Proto-Garland for a reasonable price? Another one of those items I thought I pre-ordered, but then somehow missed. The usual sources seem to be sold out or asking excessive amounts... but I haven't seen Arcadia doing re-releases.
  17. I read everything on Kindle (or Comixology). While you can convert the PDFs to Kindle's format, you don't have the guided view. It gets annoying having to zoom in to read text on your phone or tablet). That is literally the only reason I didn't buy this bundle. Other than that, it seems like a great deal, and I'd love to read the Blade Runner stuff, the Sherlock stuff (and even the latter RT stuff, enjoying it for the weirdness that it is and not thinking of it with its relation to the source material).
  18. There's not a ton to it, from what I recall. I have it, though I'd have to dig it out. It's a cool little book, and I think it had some decent concept art in it that I liked, but unless you're a completionist (like me) then I don't think you're missing much not having it. I lucked into a copy for fairly cheap online a couple years back, so it was worth it, but I wouldn't recommend settling until you find a good deal.
  19. Seriously tempted to order from HLJ, but once I add in over $100 in shipping it's hitting a pain point for me, since this is really going to be a standalone piece.
  20. I agree that, first blush, it doesn't look like what Arcadia showed in its prototype. Honestly, I'd love to have both. This is one of those designs that I wasn't tremendously impressed by when I first watched Megazone all those many years ago, but it has steadily moved up over the years to one that I love and REALLY want to add to my collection (as opposed to the non-transforming figs of this on my shelf).
