Jenius, I just watched a bunch of your video reviews, including the Beagle / Toynami Masterpiece Ride Armor.  Is that red cloth issue on your Beagle Stick also present in the Toynami Scott?

 

Great reviews, thank you!

Hope it's ok to answer this. I believe both Beagle Stick & Toynami Scott releases have the same cloth issues.

Yep, nailed it. Both the Beagle Stick and Toynami MPC Scott figures have the same problematic cloth. It wasn't fixed until Beagle did the Ray figure (and subsequently Toynami did their MPC Rand).

I avoided problems by trying to never ever touch my MPC Scott :)

Hey Happy New Year first of all. Still Jan 2019 lol

I have been quiet awhile as been working on other scales and other franchise projects.

Anyway been playing with the Riobot Mospeada lately.

I know when these figures came out I mentione, what's the possibility about Aftermarket 1/12 scale Inbit Shock troopers, however that was shot down due to costs as an aftermarket idea.

 

How about this though.

Utilising either the Matchbox Scout ( wrong design anyway) or Shocktrooper as the base body to convert into a close to accurate 1/12 Inbit Scout?

Kit comprising:-

New toes, maybe shins, Forearms and of course key part the Crab head (with eye) kit with/without weapons?

I know not totally 100% accurate but unless someone tackles it from the ground up. Doing ad hoc maybe the next best step?

Now not sure how feasible or possible it is, however if we don't spitball ideas we'll never know. I couldn't see anyone else thrown this idea before, so guess I am in thebfiring line lol

Is it feasible as a 3d print project? 

Photo just to show size differences. FYI not my photo either.

Oh don't know about Matchbox being super available. Have a gaggle of Both and happy to sacrifice a few for 1/12 Scouts.

 

Didn't know about the Breetai though. Only recall the one a few years back custom made.

I think it's the same person and I think it has evolved into an action figure. Check out the Macross Action Figures thread and you can see lots of interesting projects he's attempting. 

Edit - Also if you're talking about just a project for you to take on rather than a commercial type project, it certainly sounds like it could be pretty fun.

Give it a try and let us know how it works out.

 

In my personal experience, kit bashing makes sense if there is a specific part that you are looking to use on something different, or if there is a frame that you are going to remove parts from and replace with your own parts. In the case of the Matchbox Invid, it's pretty much all shell pieces that are screwed together. Since it looks like you're talking about replacing something like 3/4 of the shell pieces, I suspect it makes more sense just to do a new one from scratch.

Something like a Kotobukiya frame with custom parts attached to it might be a good starting point.

Huh, removing the blasters would get this Gurab really close to an Eager.

With all due respect, I don't think either of you remember what an Invid Eager looks like:

Iigaa-Invid-Scout-Light-Aerospace-Mecha-

Basically, nothing whatsoever like any Matchbox toy.  <_<

Oh I know this is the correct image.

As I stated the Matchbox Scout looks nothing like this. However for decades we have used it as the Inbit Eager with our 1/18 lines.

^ this is what I was referring to.  My matchbox scouts are really just smaller molds of the same trooper carapice without the attatchment slots for the shooters.  True, they are not anime accurate.

As a kid I wanted Robotech New Gen mecha...mainly Invids more than anything! Gakken had the Alpha's covered!  I got (and still have) two purples and a pink.  I always wanted Matchbox to do the Enforcer and the Royal Command Battaloid (Corg's). Imagine how cool and huge those would have been in 80's toy form! :D

Enforcers would be another perfect 1/12 option as only a wee bigger than the Sentinels for that 7ft look.

I think you meant the soldiers. Weren't the Enforcers big ones, same as the Inbit Garmo/Gamo?

I think that Sentinel is using the same basic figure design as 1000Toys does for all of their 1/12 stuff (if someone knows otherwise, please correct me). Considering the variants that have been put out, modifying that basic design to fit Blame!, Biomega, G.I. Joe, and assorted Kamen Rider-style characters, it doesn't seem like a stretch to use it for a few different color variants of the soldiers/Protect Inbit, too. It just depends if they believe there's a market to justify the new add-on pieces.

Actually, it depends on who you ask...  :huh:

I think we'd better just stick to Japanese nomenclature.  This is known as the Invid Malar:

And yes, now that Sentinel has produced two fantastic 1:12 Mospeada figures -- and will be producing at least two more -- I'm sure it's the perfect time for a new Moscato resin kit (since the Southern Cross projects are indefinitely on hold).

I tried offering that a few years ago. Response was meh. Maybe with the Sentinel figures out now, people would be more receptive.

Now would be the best time Cap I would have thought.

Yes. I'm hoping for a civvie figures too. Coz it's hard to plan and make a custom one. It's so time consuming. That's why I'm waiting patiently. ^_^

I saw this on Failbook earlier. Scale unknown.

...There's also this 

Which I guarantee will be better  from both a scuplting and casting perspective. I remember just a few years ago some people came to me with Wonderfest kits they paid through the nose to get, and the castings looked like stuff that should have gone in the trash... But magic Wonderfest sticker, so totally worth it.

Hello! I've tried searching the entire thread and searched for similar images via google but couldn't confirm that way: I'm searching for more info on the MOSPEADA VR-052F on this photo. It didn't look like the Gakken 1/8. Can someone please confirm if it's one of the Imai/Aoshima model kits and if so, which particular scale. I can't read the Japanese text either and perhaps a translation would help narrow it down. Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can offer.
