I'm not sure how Johnson, Shinobu, etc would work with their canon. Ie weather or not Sentinel's ride armors are reinterpretations or advancements of the original ride armors. Same for the Legioss.

Is there no love for the Legioss Drone? It seems to be completely overlooked now. I think only CMs did a version of it, :unsure:

Ah Good point, Well I hope it's possible - considering the core original series characters pilot the new ride-rmors/legioss. 

Also, It's quite  interesting that the new legioss is almost identical to the original line-art.. While much more of a (profoundly satisfying) departure for the updated rides. - They are Aramaki's master stroke! imho

CM's is the only version out there that I know of and I would love to see Sentinel take a swing at it along with the Dark Legioss.

It's been so long since I've transformed mine to armo fighter mode that I had to go back to @jenius's site to remember how the arms looked as engines:

Only learning about the Drone Legioss now.. gotta say it looks cool! But the sunken head or rather eye sensor, coupled with the claw hands gives me the Inbit vibe..  is it meant to emulate Inbit mecha?

So the drones were taken from the episode where Yellow meets the old flame in the mountain town with the rich jerk boyfriend and then rich jerk bf sends the red/blue/green drones to make sure she gets away right?   Don't remember there being a Dark or "Shadow" variant? But I haven't watched Mospeada or New Gen in a long time...

No, the shadow drones are from the battle for Refless Point; I think it was probably put in to make our "heroes" not go and kill a bunch of human pilots to allow the Refless time to take the Inbit away- I'll grab better pictures in a minute but here were the first ones I found online for them:

About New Mospeada artbook from Neko, do someone has received it from HLJ ?

Do we still have to wait for a long time ?

My order with HLJ still shows open (not fulfilled) so I'm waiting too. I'm sure they've get it in stock soon.

Love my CM's drone. Wish I'd gotten another one.

This arrived today from Amazon JP..

I don't understand Japanese, so am just forming impressions based on the pics. There's 162 glossy pages. First 50 pages talks about the model kits & toys over the years - mostly the model kits. The toy section is only a few pages and from what I can see on this, it's not very comprehensive. They generally cover the brands released over the years but not every variant under the brand. For eg, CM's is only half a page on the ride armors and no mention of their Legioss & Tread. Sentinel's Legioss Zeta is there, the same promo pics for pre-orders, but no sight of the recent Legioss Eta. In fact, now that I'm thumbing through again, the kits & toys section only focuses on the Ride Armor & Legioss, none for the Tread.

The next few pages cover the new Genesis Breaker content. The new black & red Ride Armor is here, same renders as what was previously shown before. And couple of pages of what look to be very early sketches of new Imbit mechas for Breaker & its comparative scale to the Ride Armor.

The rest of the book then goes into the line arts. Unfortunately, I do not have the prior Complete Art Works book (tried to look for it recently, but prices seem crazy in the resale market & even then its out of stock) to compare with to see what is new here. The Drone Legioss line art @akim posted right above me is present.

Thanks for the description, MKT.  Mospeada Complete Art Works is very comprehensive when it comes to line art; I doubt the Entertainment Archive book would feature anything new there.

after mispronouncing Legioss, Mospeada, and Gakken, and then not knowing what intakes are called, I kinda lost patience.

So its sort of like hearing an American mispronounce veld ( correctly pronounced: felt ) and Khaki ( correctly pronounced: carkey )?

No, you’re mispronouncing those actually. There’s no “f” in veld and no “r” in khaki. Can’t just go throwing sounds into words for fun man!  That’s be like “dog” is correctly pronounced “drought”

Doubtful. English has so many regional accents and dialects, no matter whether you accept UK or US phonetics as globally representative. One can say to-mei-to and another can say to-maa-to and all that.

He’s poking fun at US English, but the UK phonetics should be written kaa-key and not car-key.;) The “f” for veldt is not unheard of, just uncommon (unless you’ve been to South Africa).

Z is zed?  That is all.

That’s a funny one. UK and US English used to be more aligned on how to pronounce the letter Z. Today, “proper” UK English uses zed as you point out, which is a derivative of the French and classic Greek and Latin pronunciations.

Some people like to say one way or the other is wrong, but I find it more of a language curiosity, myself.

All languages are amazing.  The inbid got by with a series of garbles akin to Zoidberg

ha ha... words in Afrikaans use "v" as a "f" but then again... alot of the words are strange in Afrikaans

all coming from the roots of a Dutch dialect

Well yes, kaa-key is right. Except I wasnt sure how an american would pronounce that. Carkey gets you close to the correct aa sound unless you over emphasize the r.

Pronouncing  the name of a place utterly differently from the way the locals do, while using the same language, is jarring. Just imagine listening to an audiobook where the narrator keeps saying Tezaaz when he refers to Texas, lol.

No worries. I get where you're coming from. :drinks:

BBTS is saying August which is two months from release so should be soon. I’m just now getting notifications for other Japanese figures released in June that they arrived

I"m still waiting on my Legioss which I pre-ordered back in November.

Not Mospeada, but I'm also waiting for my Ah Megamisama Freeing Skuld bunny figure to arrive at BBTS.  It was allegedly released back in early June at the same time as the Belldandy figure.  I've had my Belldandy figure from AmiAmi for two months now, with not a peep from BBTS as to my pre-order arriving.

I'm also still waiting on my Fate/Grand Order Jeanne Beach version figma, which was released back at the end of May.

I just hope I get them.  I don't dare cancel my pre-orders and order any of them from Japan because the only shipping option is DHL and that would be something like $100 shipping for each right now because of DHL rate increases.  Plus, it isn't like that's really an option with the Legioss anyway.

I had wanted to see what the blue legioss was like in terms of quality before I took the plunge on pre-ordering the red one.  I just hope the pre-order on the red one doesn't sell out before I get to look at the one I've already ordered.
