And I had to try it as well. The body base is really old type and bigger  than usual. I'll have to try again after swapping the base body.

Nice! You’re going to customize the figure and replace it with a smaller body type? Can’t wait to see it. Also, you already painted the stripe into black. Are you going for 001 or 011? ^_^

Figure body - yes.

Black Stripe - No that was photoshop :D. I'm testing an option with static vinyl sheet thou

Hey Kyekye. If it’s possible. Before you change the body type, can you post a pic of the two figures together? I’m planning on getting a stand-alone Rick figure down the line. Thanks! ^_^

You pushed me a step closer to getting one. I hope someone makes good figures in scale with this one day.

As far as I remember, they're going to release an articulated 1/6 scale of Rick Hunter down the line separately. Probably Max as well after his speaker gets released.

I meant DYRL figures after seeing that one in the cockpit.

Oh. The Popbox Hikaru DYRL figure. Yeah, I hope some company will make a better one soon. I find mine too tall with the rest of my 1/6th scale figure. But I really like the helmet and the suit. And got it on bargain too from Robotech Store before. ;)

Does the cockpit display have volume control or make any sounds along with the lights?

Not directly and no sounds directly either.... sounds are via Bluetooth speaker functionality so the only thing you get when switching on the cockpit is a beep to let you know it works, the lights and also the video on the small display in the centre.

i thought that initially they were going to allow an SD card to be inserted for custom video footage to be displayed on the monitor.

Kyekye, any way I can get a print of those h.ichijo stickers?

:)

Sorry. I just saw the post.

if you have a inkjet printer, you can get a water-slide decal paper and print this one.

make sure print resolution is 300dpi image width is around 16cm

Are you going to redo the controls and HDD to match the DYRL standard?

That will end up an expensive custom job. And I don't think someone will risk on dissassembling a $1500+ collectible to change the controls, right? ;)

Did the owners of the VF cockpit get any notification for the 1/6 Hikaru you were supposed to get with your purchase?

Haven't seen any other news on the 1/6 figs....hope thye are stil coming out.

Yeah. I'm hoping they do. I kinda like the 'Rick' 1/6 figure that they've shown prior.

3day weekend. great time to do some mod on my old 1/6 Popbox movie Ichijo figure. This time I'll make him sit in the cockpit :D

So I took it a part and saw what make him taller than regular 1/6 figure. This was the culprit.

Replaced his base body with Hot Toys Asian body. Converted his neck and hands/feet to work with new body standards.

Now he is properly scaled

the statue weight around 44kg total, 28kg body, 18kg speaker..

all made from polyresin, except the canopy ..i was shocked by the canopy ...when i touch it... 

seriously kidslogic? 

my only complain is just one, the canopy was made cheap like plastic bottle, i will never buy anymore from kidslogic x Golden harmony ..they are disgusting..(bottle plastic canopy for 1230$)

but hey... when you light it up... well crap....

goood gimmick indeed! well... im cool..with it..

but that canopy.. still make me mad...xD

despite all..yes its the best macross statue right now... much worth it than prime1 or SDF kidslogic...

i noticed that kids logic will send you hikaru 1/6 action figure seperately... on october.. due to production issues..

 

ok..lah 8.8/10

10/10 if not for that shitty canopy and golden harmony

Actually I'm glad they used the light weight material for canopy. I can leave the canopy open without additional support if I want to.

Anyways, Here is my fitting test with movie pilot.

Hey Kyekye. Love what you did with your DYRL Hikaru figure. Was it hard on dismantling the costume? And any chance you have a pic of before and after so we can see how big the difference on the figure height afterwards? Thanks!

Good job by the way! :good:

about 2cm from strange ankle extension + another 1cm from torso overall.  so he became 3cm shorter.

I don't have 2 sets of figures, so I can't give to before and after comparison shot in single image :D

Prime 1 Studio Robotech statues are a let down. I can't believe that's the best they can do for Macross / Robotech.

 

That DYRL figure looks really good in the cockpit. I might have to find one of those and do the modification.
