HAHAHA I knew a few wouldn't be overly happy with Rick being fixed to Riobot. Admiral Hunter Lives hahahaha

Anyway had a chat with the guy and apparently the Neck piece is on thingverse.

As said Opens up for other brands of heads to put onto the bodies.  

I'm still looking for an appropriate pair of heads for the Colonel (one in helmet and full head) so can finish off No 13.

I spent over $1300 on Blueberry Crabs -- just to ensure they'd get produced, mind you -- and multiple Kings as well, but I got stalled trying to source appropriately strong joints to articulate the Kings (I want action figures, not static models!), and... other projects have since occupied my attention.  8)

Oh, I much prefer the Helper Crab.  Those ball-joints solve all sorts of problems.  :wub:

This one's from @duckmodelkits in Chile.

Hopefully that issue gets resolved as I too would like to see you Gosu build.

And the helper crab build if you acquired any.

Hello,

I have read all the reviews and challenges to the Sentinel's 1:12 Mospeada Riders.

I own two of them but have not taken them out of their packaging yet.  Very disappointed about the manufacturer's QC as it relates to the  plastic link/bracket that everyone complains about.  Sounds like it cracks by just looking at it.  

I want to make sure I am not missing anything..but has there been any tested solutions to this issue?  ...anyone fabricated a better bracket? ...3D replacement,  anything?

Read plenty of theories and potential solutions on this forum on how best to fix this but no comments on anyone following through with it.

  Thanks in advance...the Yellow looks great but I can't justify buying it if their are no fixes..

Oki

There are two areas that seem to be breaking:

The first is the pivot point for the side covers

The second is the twist point for the gauntlets.

While it's not a fix, I believe both breaks can be avoided the same way. As one of the first steps of transformation, disconnect the ball joint from the front shock at the pivot point. This then allows you to remove the front gauntlets entirely and get them into the proper armor mode configuration. Transform the toy as you normally would then reapply the gauntlets. Do not reattach the ball joint, just shove it behind the figure's armpit. This will make it look attached without causing any stress on the toy (as shown in that picture above) and gives you greater range of movement. If yours is already broken, this is no help. If you're scared to transform yours because of breaks, this should be a good way to avoid them.

Probably not the best place to post, this, but it is a Mospeada thread! Anyways, do you guys remember this "Shareware" game that back out in the 80s?

It can be played at the following link:

  • azrael changed the title to Mospeada

Someone’s about 2 and 1/2 months too late for an April Fool’s joke.

Edit:  Do you need one of us to start a new Mospeada thread in the Anime or Science Fiction section, so you can combine it back with this old/merged thread?

No love for Southern Cross?

:p

You know, I haven't seen Southern Cross since it aired as part of Robotech in 1985, so I have no love or hate for the show as I don't remember much of anything about. The mecha look uninteresting though. 

Also, why is there a Mospeada thread here? :huh:

Southern Cross is a lot better in its original from then in Robotech.  I'm sure how much better is a matter of debate.  We should have a pool on how long this topic stays here.  :p

- It will stay with the Macross Toy threads until HG files a cease and desist.

- It will be moved once Sentinel meets a release date on time. :ph34r:

- It will be moved out once larger scale Houquet and Shinobu (sp?) ride armors are released.

This looks amazing, your Ride-Armor is so well detailed. For years I have considered trying this with the old model kits and now I feel inspired by your Custom to give a try as well. Hope you do Yellow's Ride Armor too! B))

Oh man- that means my timing will probably coincide with a bunch of other things I've ordered finally getting shipped as well. I keep telling my wife I didn't order this stuff all at the same time.

Also, I think I need to build another shelf to make more room.

Really excited for this release. I've gone back & forth so many times on getting either a CM's or Evolution Toy's Legioss just to have one in the collection. I can't imagine being in the shoes of others here in the collecting game far longer than I have, having gone through the various Legioss toy releases over the years and being disappointed each time..

Agreed, I remember picking the aoshima release and thinking to myself, the sculpt looks good enough, but man it was built with crappy materials and probably the lowest factory of the bunch built it. Then I got the CMS and thought well it's made out of solid materials, but man the engineering and sculpt on it is wack! 

Maybe this time we finally have the best of both worlds. Maybe.

Being a Legioss fan has been tough going (though I'm still fond of the old Gakken 1/35 toys). I've been let down so many times now, I'm trying not to get excited about this release. 

Those Aoshima releases were such a burn. The Toynami MPCs were good looking toys, just poorly built. Involving Aoshima with a few design tweaks seemed like a great way to salvage it... instead they made it worse! Ugh.

Can’t wait to see everyone’s reviews, comments, and pics.

Really hope the shoulders and hips have solid joints.

So, does this mean we can expect the red Zeta before the end of the year?

I want the Houquet ride armor first.

I wouldn’t mind it first too, but I suspect Houquet’s Legioss will come first for the following reasons:

* It’s just a head swap, a new gun, and a change in paint.

* We’ve already seen a fully painted prototype of the Zeta.

* The most recent pics we saw of the Bartley ride armor are still unpainted prototypes.

There’s a fairly solid chance we’ll see the green Legioss before they finish the new ride armor.
