So yesterday I pulled the Riobot Legioss off the shelf (was in soldier/battroid mode) and decided to get it to go into fighter mode.
OMG it was a big hot mess of 'how in the heck do I move this to be over there' and 'there to here'.
Couldn't remember what position/slot the legs needed to be in for a tight compact fighter mode (I guessed wrong)
Now it is back in fighter mode, one side is a little bit droopier than the other(wings). The slightest touch and the arms disengage from their little slots.

I enjoy the sculpt, but I sure wish they could dial back the transformation complexity a bit.
Or just make the toy larger, as the pieces are so damn small. That could help a little when trying to figure out what goes where. This thing should not be 1/48 scale, in my opinion.
Wonder if anything will be improved on the next version.

they should have made it large enough to fit both the Riobot  Ride armour and the figure as the Pilot :D

That kid logic statue is an even bigger abomination than the megahouse ride-armors!!

Obviously made by an American team with zero style or originality.

Their sdf-1 is quite respectable...shame that tried to get "creative" when it came to mospeada. 

100% F A I L

 

(out of curiosity) could you elaborate to what makes it a 100% fail in your books?

This is about the scale I'd like it...  :)

That axe from the dream sequence Episode where they were fantasy characters, or just completely out of nowhere? Arm looks a little small too.  To be fair the builder clearly is skilled esp. with painting.

Oh Perhaps as a die-hard Mospeada fan since 1986 I happen to be particularly sensitive to Aramaki genius-level design being reinterpreted in a somehow americanized g.i. joe fashion...it just pushes all the wrong buttons for me.

  -Not that i demand the classic Mospeada designs only by any stretch: Aramaki's recent "re-imagining" of the ride-armors melts my face off everytime i see the riobots on my shelf! The design genius borders on the supernatural!

They represent a deeply satisfying example of a departure from the originals..imho

Final rub?  Kid-logic made a expensive mistake..I would have purchased at least one in a hot minute had they simply used the Imai or Gakken sculpt as a basis for their outing.  - just my 2 cents

Hello Friends, come and check out my new YouTube video MOSPEADA OPENING REMASTERED (Full HD) 

It premieres in 9 hours. It will help me a lot if you share and like my video. 

I really hope you enjoy it. 

Take care. 

 

Just watched your Remastered OP and really loved it. Wonderful artwork and animation, and the use of cover versions of the original songs performed by your friends is just awesome. 10/10

Thank you for your efforts, and for sharing them with us!

thats really cool! and I appreciate the effort that went into it.
my only comment (coming from a professional 3D animator standpoint) some of your animations need tightening up and a bit more snap to them.
otherwise AWESOME and well done :D

This is a problem with most CGI in anime these days.

I think a lot of fundamentals of animation have been lost in the transition to cheap CGI.

The main thing I think has been lost is the use of acceleration curves. Basically, the animation/movement of models should be defined by a curve. The curve shouldn't be linear, because linear movement is boring. It should be at least a second order polynomial. That gives you the "snap", I think, either when decelerating to a stop or accelerating off the screen.

Any updates on the Sentinel Zeta release? The Eta was on time, so I'm curious if we are still on track for January.

They haven't posted anything so I think it still January. I'm relying what's being posted at AmazonJP coz they always update it when there's any schedule changes.

Hello guys,
I leave you a photo with my first modeling job.
From 1 to 4 I was incorporating different tools, colors and also learning.
Which of these 4 seems best to you? Please let me know

Thank you!

They all look good—like they've been prepared for different environments (forest, desert, etc).

However, if forced to pick one, I'd go with 3 with no further modification.

Incidentally, 4 is the weakest, because it feels rather flat without panel lining or weathering added to it.

I've always preferred the matte look, so I'd say 2 for me.

Come on Sentinel, they are very slow!

I’d like a red closer to the shade on that sign in the front.

But as long as it ain’t that hot pink, we’ll be good.

Any word if Sentinel is still on schedule to release the Zeta this January?

Their website still says January 2021. Amazon estimates January 30. Amiami's date is January as well.

Finally got my Riobot Legioss after 6 months waithing and i love it. Awesome figure with cool features and, idk, soul.

Congrats, Enphily! This is a toy that was soooo long in the waiting, but well worth it for all that it accomplishes, especially when compared to the many toys/models that preceded it. I think most of us are now waiting to see if they do a Tread. Clues on the Legioss point to yes, even if no formal announcement has been made.
