  1. No Houquet? That's who they should've STARTED with!
  2. M&M cockpits @ 1:07... and here I thought I was thru with cockpits. Gotta think hard about this one.
  3. Ok I can see that lol. No, that's my little Aldi Bauhn power bank I've had for years. You need an external USB enabled power source for the lighting effects.
  4. Non-existent. There are no sound modules, speakers, or any type of onboard audio to be found here. But if LED's are your thing then this should definitely suffice.
  5. Word to the wise; this is a display piece, and you'd better be gentle as all get out, or risk breaking your almost $500.00 collectible... just saying. Points of EXTREME concern: The canopy is attached with a thin piece of plastic that may be prone to warping over time. It does not appear to be removable. That may be a feature that will debut with the VF-1S. The tension/resistance on that canopy hinge is practically nil. You feel just the slightest bit of grip, but not enough to hold anything in place. You have 2 options for display afaik; canopy fully opened, or completely closed. Also my canopy is very gappy. Don't really know how to fix this, but it's not to bothersome to me. And now the stand/base... I absolutely don't like what they went with here. The stickers are garrish, and the stability is questionable at best. Be careful when posing this thing also. I suggest you don't choose too aggressive an angle on the adjustable connector; unless you want to send this thing tumbling God forbid! This is polystone construction, and will look like a hot mess if you break it. Other than the above rant, I love this thing! I really do!
  6. Here's some pics I just took of this cockpit w/Rick/Hikaru...
  7. Still waiting for Roy to arrive, but I can guarantee you one thing...based on the pics I've seen of Roy standing next to Hikaru, ain't no way in Hades that figure will fit in the 1J cockpit I've got! I'll put it to the test when he arrives though none the less. I could be wrong, but it appears that they may have taken the foot pedals out of the final design, and maybe by doing so it allowed for the figure to fit properly within the cockpit. I detected no obstructions with the feet at all.
  8. I just got my 1/12 VF-1J cockpit yesterday, and can verify that the KC Rick Hunter figure fits like a champ with NO modding of parts! All I did was remove the tan backpack and VOILA! I'm talking even with the helmet on he looks made to order for this cockpit! If you own this figure, then you definitely don't need the static statue. Will take some pics and post tomorrow if time permits me. Also, a word of caution... The cockpit is held on to the base with 2 neodymium magnets that hold ok I guess. But be careful cause the attachment points can be tricky.
