hmm.

thought this thread is for taking pics of your posing skills with your own toys.

didn't know compositing official product's promo pics is equivalent to that...

 

:confused:

 

Neither do I but they do look neat at least.

I can re-do it once you have the second version of the pic!  :good:

Ok...the new pic is much clearer and makes the overall pic look much better IMO....

....I'm not going to argue or defend the merits of the sculpt.....as Kyle Reese said of the Terminator......

That looks good.  Here's one more posing pic for today.  I'll probably do more HMR and DX poses starting tomorrow.

Excellent. But I recollect that Hikaru was in the forefront of this picture/drawing. Kakyzaky should be the semi/Gerwalk in the distance.
 

Nice teaser of what’s to come.

Correct!  If you take a look, Hikaru is now taking up Kakizaki's original position in Gerwalk mode in this homage to Bandai's 1985 Hi-Metal 1/55 boxart... :drinks:

:shok:WOW!  This HMR Monster is incredible.  :wub:Truly this has to be their best piece from the HMR releases.  I can't believe even the soles of the feet are articulated.  Check out this crazy pose!  Even all the little red lights are articulated.  The detail is astounding in person (to me at least).  So glad I decided to spring for this one.  

BTW, which episode shows the Monster in battle action?  I remember an ep where it comes out and crushes the deck dramatically, but I can't seem to find it.  That makes no sense tho.  In Ep5 they show it being hauled around by loading straps easily enough, and the ship has artificial gravity that can be modified on a whim, why would it be turned up high enough to crush the deck?  I presume it's to keep it from toppling off or away upon firing, but... they couldn't have used magnets or something?  Lol, anyway...

And the Arcadia GBP is no less amazing.  The quality of the Arcadia KO that I first bought (before I knew it was a knock off in my defense) is no match for this.  Everything is so crisp, clean, and tight.  Although, I'm not looking forward to having to apply decals.  :rolleyes:

I'm constantly amazed at how well toy engineers have been able to bring these to life from a freakin cartoon from the 80's, not to mention are STILL making them better and better!  I'm truly thankful to have found this forum and these toys.  Thank you!  :hail:

And I really like this view of the exhaust ports for some reason.  The gold is such a nice touch!

Congrats! Those are two of the top 10 (maybe even 5) Macross pieces ever made imo.

LOL....Maybe I can take the blast effects from your Kakizaki diorama and compose them into the shot.....have a decent pic of it?

This is the only picture I could find at the moment. Will see if I can dig out the parts and take some pics for you.image.thumb.jpeg.ecb4ff24de2d4a6f5a0f0f2fb5214846.jpeg

It’s based on an old Macross pic that I still have on my phone.

Yeah...I knew it was either in one of the old school anime mags or the Perfect Memory book....was in the latter...

This pose will probably be the next that I take a pic of when the sun comes out.
