Very, very tough seams on that Battriod kit. The legs and chest are brutal. I'm working on one right now as well. 

I am almost done fixing the seams, some of it will not be 100%, I have to call it a day. I am still undecided about the chest seam. Found a bottle of valejo watere based putty. Might try to fill up the seam if I feel confident enough to not destroy the fine details around that area.

Come on guys. I thought at least this one would be an easy go. But ok, as it is one of my favorite VF-1 designs, somehow it will fit together ;)

The proportion is the best and the details on these kits are really nice. But the seams.... give me nightmare. I think Bandai kits (the newer ones) are much better about seams.

A couple of Mandalorians turned up today: Heavy Infantry and Carbonised Boba (i guess that makes him Soda Fett?).  I think the Hasbro's Black Series have decent masked trooper style likenesses.  It's been a bit hit and miss on the photo-real faces tho

I've always had a lot of respect for you but if this statement was not a joke, I really need to reconsider that.:p

Other than a few moments where they showed G1 designs that we mostly already saw in trailers, the rest of the movie was a big heaping, stinking pile of (explicative deleted).:D

Replied in the appropriate thread.

Those Black Series Mandaloarians are awesome, I don't collect Black Series don't want to get caught up with another line but the Mandalorians were really tempting.  Cool shots and very nice background. :good:

I have not been keeping up with TF releases, is that DotM Soundwave a 3P release or official.  It looks amazing!

Those little guys are pretty good, I was really glad I grabbed the sets from HLJ on ultra-discount when they were running out the stock.  Especially glad they had the VF-9 and VA-3, since I think those are the only mass-market versions of those designs.

Managed to get series 1 off of Mandarake, wish I could find series 2.

EVERY third-party movieverse figure looks amazing, compared to any official option.

Even the straight KOs have more accurate colors, more detailed paint app's, and better prices...

OSKO_repaints.jpg

The OSKOs have better engineering, more articulation, and more electronics...

Bayverse_OSKOs.jpg

Most amazing of all are the original figures, designed from scratch at Movie Masterpiece scale and accurate enough to put any previous versions to shame...

Bayverse_3P.jpg

But what's really amazing is how these enterprising fans keep beating HasTak at their own game, delivering product that's better, cheaper, and often easier to obtain, even.

Find me an official Transformer toy that holds up to this level of scrutiny...

...and can actually, y'know, transformB))

I've also been collecting select 3rd party TF movieverse figures around the same time as I do Macross, and more than once I've been blown away on the ingenuity of the transformations. Yes, many seem to feature endless folding parts & overengineered complexity that makes the  DX Chogokins VF-171 & SV-262 seem very simple in comparison, but they do achieve their end objective of being rather show-accurate in both modes, despite how the transformation process itself were never figured out by the shows' mecha designers.

The one gripe all these while, especially as a Macross collector, was that no one could design a kibble-free underside for the movieverse jets, which is understandably hard since it's another surface to deal with as compared to say, the vehicle-bots since no one really cares about vehicle undersides. However, the recent 3rd party Bumblebee-movie Blitzwing toys have changed that and gives us an F4 Phantom that is essentially kibble-less. I'm so looking forward to receiving that!

Thanks brotha!! My first one is still in great shape as well if you're interested in it. ;)

My first thought when you said you might sell your other one was "Oh please don't do that!" since I now have some HMRs from @Alphahorizon coming as well as a Evolution dark legioss on the way from Mandarake (about a week after I told my wife I wasn't expecting to get any new mechs until the DX 1D).

 

But if it *does* go up as a listing. I'll look at it for sure. And then start the process of rationalization.
