  1. Lol, those balloon hands still get me, hahahaha!
  2. Reminds me of our top heavy G-Wagons, which have a tendency to roll over a lot, lol! http://www.army-armee.forces.gc.ca/assets/ARMY_Internet/images/pages/vehicles/g-wagon-02.jpg
  3. Ok, I was also thinking that too, they chose white on screen because it was too difficult to portray aluminum.....and also thought about the space shuttle and other real world space craft being white.
  4. That looks amazing, pretty sweet Eagle. I haven't mastered metallic paints out of my airbrush, and still struggle with it quite a bit.
  5. I just discovered a subtle way to make the GBP look less short and fat by just extending the knees and feet to give it a bit more height. I dunno, maybe it's just me, but it gives the unit a bit more presence.
  6. Thanks! Were there any real world fighter craft back in the 80s that were painted white like that for combat operations? I wonder why they went with white in the anime, was it just more visible on screen, easier to animate, or because white ink was on sale?
  7. I am really surprised stuff is coming out of NY. They still owe me strike packs from 2019.
  8. What's the consensus, worth watching in theatre? I hear the visuals are incredible, but are they enough to get me off my lazy butt and into a theatre. I'm familiar with the background story, watched the 84 version numerous times, will it just piss me off when they cut it off and make me wait for part 2? Thinking about just skipping it in theatres and watching them both back to back when part 2 is available to stream.
  9. I know this would have been unlikely (this is a clear demonstration of how I don't understand the film industry), but would have been cool if they filmed two versions simultaneously, an actual English version and a Japanese version with Japanese speaking actors (lots of talented non Japanese who ca. Speak Japanese fluently). One cut films the English version, stop, swap out actors for he same scene in Japanese. Lol, yeah, I know, probably a logistical nightmare. Dubbed movies have always been a distraction for me, takes me right out of the film.
  10. OK, I don't remember much of Mac F and don't know a thing about Mac D, but the repaint looks way better than the original paint scheme.
  11. Think there will be a Japanese language dub available for North American Netflix? Would be interesting. Observation: Spike seems to smile more in the anime. I could be wrong.
  12. Oh, that sounds lame. Looks like a lot of sellers simply won't ship to Canada, but once in a blue moon, someone pops up.
  13. Lol, when I saw this thread, I thought there was a glitch in the Matrix:
  14. When shopping on amazon Japan, don't forget the sticker price includes domestic tax, which gets taken off at check out! Always worth throwing it into the cart and calculate shipping and duty to see what the total damage might be.
  15. I ended using CA glue to reattach the peg back to the shoulder, but I don't even want to touch my 1/72 much (yeah, I know, I went too gray on the paint).
  16. I built a plain 1S and after posing it a few times, the shoulder broke and the hip broke. For my next battroid, I'm just going to build, pose once and leave it alone on the shelf. For multiple poses, I guess I'll just stick to my toys
  17. Please have stronger hips and shoulders!! PLEASE!
  18. I'm in. It looks good, going to turn off my brain and not overthink it. This will probably irk some people when I say this, but I would also like to see the original Toy Story given a refresher. They do it with games sometimes....no harm in having the original version and an updated version.
  19. Looks like a screenshot from the film, wow! Hope you don't mind, I posted your touched up photos to IG and FB, with credit to you.
