  1. That's pretty bad. Not sure why the tail is removeable as a gimmick, it's not like there is any additional detail. The guns, launchers and engine don't appear to be painted, just solid block of 3d print. The way the removeable canopy comes off, you'd think for $450, the doors would open properly. Sliding seats.....I'm out if they don't recline and aren't heated. This thing should cost no more than $75 USD. I'm not even sure I'd pay that much considering the gaping seam lines (which aren't even in the right places). The comments baffle me. I can't believe there are people that think this is awesome.
  2. I think you forgot to put the cradle for the boosters on for parts of the video, that's why the boosters/backpack flopped back.
  3. As a student of Japanese swordsmanship, the Kenshin live action films were unwatchable. I really liked the fight scenes in the OVA Trust/Betrayal. Even though it was anime, the physics seemed to be mostly grounded in reality, but the live action films just went straight to the chambara and wire-fu.
  4. The Yamato mold doesn't look that bad next to the DX. If the Yammies elimited stickers and everything came tampo'd, I bet they would still sell....as long as they were cheaper than the Bandai offerings.
  5. I want to do the same, to recreate this scene: I did it in 1/72 scale but I'm not sure if I can find the space to do it in 1/48.
  6. I never even got offered a credit. They've been ignoring my tickets since 2019.
  7. Want: Can't tell if the hatches/missile covers are hinged or fixed.....guessing fixed. I hope Hasegawa fixed the hips on their battroids....oh, and shoulder joints too. Looks like there won't be any legs under the leg armor (makes sense, why bother): But you can tell the feet mount straight into an armor shell. Would have been nice to at least see the the bottom of the legs, again, not something that's really noticeable unless you're looking directly for it or from the bottom view. Overall, looks really good and I want one.
  8. Lol, that is awesome. Yeah, none of the original designs were very discreet if translated to the real world. Something completely forgiven as a child and completely forgotten as an adult when chasing for screen accuracy. Jazz: Prowl: Mirage: The pics could go on forever, but yea, none of these cars are discreet, lol! As a car enthusiast, the R33 is an eye sore, it has nothing to do with transformers at all. Maybe they were going for the LM look: For the folks that are into Fast and Furious or the Bay films, the GT-R in the group pic might be ok, but for automotive enthusiasts, it's pretty hideous, lol!
  9. About bloody time, I almost forgot about this show.
  10. I think the person who modded that R33 should be charged with crimes against humanity. They were going for the JGTC look but failed. If they built that thing from a pile of scraps, fine, but if they did that to a perfectly good R33, there's a special place in hell for them.
  11. I don't know if I've ever said this but your channel is awesome. It's fair and it's informative. Once in a while, something NSFW pops up, and I got the stink eye from the wife, but all in all, good stuff.
  12. Oh, that holographic thing? Yup. I should figure out how to sell things on eBay....local craigslist and FB Marketplace.....not a lot of Macross fans in my area.
  13. Lol, I filled out the survey, told them AJ and HLJ are good for Macross purchases, told them Nippon Yasan stole my money. I know, totally unrelated, but figured it couldn't hurt for them to hear that. Also asked for them to do an SDF1, a 1/48 VF-1A cannon fodder, low vis, also told them I wanted their 1/32 VF-1J prototype.....lol, it was like a list for Santa. Unrealistic but fun
  14. Pretty sure I've asked this before, but are these things still worth anything? I have that box set sitting on my shelf collecting dust....paid almost $400 USD back in the day
  15. I like the G1 Prime though.....that's me trying to stay positive.
  16. Thanks for posting! Lol, I filled out the survey, told them AJ and HLJ are good for macross purchases, told them Nippon Yasan stole my money.

  17. The details you paint are smaller than the grooves of your fingerprints..
  18. Dude, this is epic.....but I can't blame you for trying, hahahahahaha!
  19. I have one of those in my pile, and yeah, I totally agree about the older kits....parts sandwiched in other parts, making painting and seam filling a huge PITA. Yours looks good though.
