My new toy.. 1/6 scale replica Dragon's Lair.

One of my favorite arcade games from the 80's. I still remember the first time I saw and played it when I was a little kid. No one had ever seen anything like it.....

Awesome! Is that an exact arcade port?

Make sure your numbers are sequential. The smallest box is just the base and the electronics so it doesn't matter what group that came from. The bottom two should be 'XX-2' and 'XX-3'. If not you may have some fit issues like I did.

I took a bunch of pictures of my 1/1200 SDF-1. You can find them all here. Let me know if the link doesn't work.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/15yqUQqbHpNP4e6v121I3TjZRFq3IdBvq?usp=sharing

Basically, the item arrived damaged with the right shoulder boom snapped in half during shipping which is unfortunate. On top of that the item was shipped in three separate boxes that should be a set. Unfortunately mine came from different sets and I couldn't properly put it together. The right leg and the left arm won't plug into the main body. Even if I didn't have a broken piece, this fit issue alone would have prevented me from enjoying the item fully as I can't assemble it. The AC plug that lights the item is in the right leg, but I couldn't plug it in enough to light up the rest of the statue. 

 

Anyways, from head to toe, the SDF-1 stands at about 25 inches to the top of the antenna and about 34 inches to the very top of the shoulder booms. The base adds 5 inches more in height for a total of 39 inches. I have placed picture in my Google Drive folder for anyone to take a look at that might be interested.

 

I purchased this at BigBadToyStore and they have been gracious enough to accept a refund and pay for return shipping as they don't have any additional units to replace mine. That being said, I still really like this piece and I might just try again and buy direct from Kids Logic. I'm currently asking them what their return/replacement policy is in case I run into problems again.

I also bought this set from BBTS, and mine came intact.  I really like the the model, BUT....

Mine have similar issues, even though the set is correct: XX-1 and XX-3.  XX-2 is a different set, but it is the base.  I could not fully connect the two arms and the right leg to the body. 

I could not test the audio, because I don't have the AC cable.

It seems like Kids Logic is lacking QC department.   So disappointed.  For the price of the model, Kids Logic could do much better. 

I emailed BBTS. and waiting for response.

Have you tried attaching the small cannons to the shoulders? I think the arms might light up if those are connected ( maybe closes the circuit). Not sure what’s going on with your left leg though. It seems like it’s connected.

I snagged Monsterarts Nargacuga for $63 shipped off Hot Topics black Friday sale, of all places. I was waiting on stock at BBTS for retail price, this works :). My Rathalos is on the way too, and I'm in for Zinogre when orders open, love me some Monster Hunter.

Yes, I plugged in the cannons and they still did work.  I think if they sanded down the joints a bit, they would work.  The parts which light up, the joints fitted perfectly,  I am very disappointed.  I hope Sideshow would do something like this.  The QC would be much better.

Agreed. Extremely disappointing. We're zero for two on here so far. I really want this product to succeed and it's really unfortunate to see these QC issues.

Found a Yamato 1:48 VF-1A Angel Birds from Mandarake quite cheap purely for display in fighter mode. Looks to be in pretty clean condition with nothing broken and without any yellowing at all. Though the sticker sheet is missing.. might use a couple kite logos from the DX VF-1J but I won't have the Angel Birds signage for the legs unless I find a cheap Hasegawa 1:48 kit and use the decals from it?

Handling this toy it feels so old school!

So I was requested to throw some pictures in this thread (mostly of the DX Chogokin Max VF-1S) but since I had other new items on display, and/or not yet put away in storage I figured I'd do some group shots. Forgive the "blah" nature of the photos, making my toys look cool through pictures isn't really one of my strengths :lol:.

Thanks Noel!

That is the MB Destiny Soul Red (I haven't even removed the slip cover lol).

The AutoArt is a metallic red Lexus LC500.

And yeeepp Max has seen some action, I love it!

Completely worth the wait though, thing is hefty, and amazing. Even has good articulation.

20201204_145356.thumb.jpg.7f0c783cc43440c650f8fa148b957a00.jpg

 

I went with surface too. Maybe that was a mistake. They wanted $30 more for shipping that took two weeks though. Whatever that was.

I just had something finally get confirmed as lost coming surface recently. I'm not very confident right now.

I'm looking really forward to the Gurren Lagann!

Marvel Legends Gamerverse Iron Man.  My Toybox Hall of Armor sets are coming in later and I’m looking forward to putting my comic Tony Stark and Iron Man figures inside.

Not only does it have the drills, wings, and throwing shades. It also gives you 3 different faceplates for different expressions, a bunch of hands, and even replacement parts for the chest and head to hide attachment points when you're not using them.

I recently watched Kuma's review. He was all but gushing, which says a LOT! Looking so forward to it! I absolutely love the design and it appears like the toy quality is fantastic on top of that. And also........the right size!!!! I'm so sick of 6-8" Super Robots!

I don't know if you're into the Mazinger stuff but CCS Toys (same company that did the Gurren Lagann) just started a PO for the Shin Mazinger Zero. And it looks REALLY nice. It's 12" to the top of the Scrander so the right size too. There aren't very many Mazinger Zero figures out there. All I know of is the SRC (too small and goofy sculpt) and the Heavy Metal (massive at 17" and 11lb - not very detailed - no Scrander). The CCS should be the new standard. If it is I'll be selling my Heavy Metal.

What are "kite logos"? I'm assuming it's more than just logos shaped like a kite (diamond shape).

This just arrived today.    Gift from the Mrs.  So I could only get a quick picture before she squirreled it away for Xmas. 

I like the box, has a flap that opens to reveal the contents,  plus it DOES come with all the accessories that the individual Voltron 84 lions had.

Oh man...those Nintendo Game Watches were such a key part of my childhood memories. Ironically, my family just dusted off the Wii and I introduced Super Mario Bros to them. Kids love it and now want to play it all the time.
