Nothing against your pic, Kuma.  

But my hatred for that hot pink pilot still burns with the heat of a thousand suns.

I didn't work a single minute in the factory that produced it so nada to do with me. Feel free to let me know what you think of my photography and Reviews though.

Never had an issue with any of the pics you post here on the board, Kuma. :good:

I just get a Pavlovian rage response whenever I see the hot pink pilot. :pardon:

I really don't know what Sentinel was thinking picking that color for Houquet.

Yea, it's definitely different. It doesn't irk me like that but I understand where you're coming from. Did you purchase it? Just wondering if it's more of a picture thing or in-hand as well.

Just because of the company I'm sure nothing will be improved and reviewing this will be just as much of a pain as Eta but now I'm stuck because I've gotta get Iota and go through it a third time later as well. Fun Fun.

I only own Stiq's ride, but my beef with the pilot fig was its extreme fragility, which made it very frustrating to handle.  I don't get as steamed about the paint jobs, or lack thereof, of the pilot figs, as I'm in it for that gorgeous Legioss and feel that's where the bulk of the budget should go. However, for the asking price, it'd be nice if Sentinel made the pilots a little sturdier and gave them full and accurate paint jobs as part of a complete same-quality package across the board. They really stand out next to their mecha for their rather monochromatic looks, almost as if they were an after-market addition rather than part of the original package.

And your photos are always top notch, Kuma. It's a shame you have to plaster a watermark across them, but I get it.  What a shame that some people have no scruples.😒

I don't really care about unpainted pilots because i love what Sentinel did with Legioss. And i painted my Stig's figure by myself. Waiting for Zeta to paint both Yellow and Houqet. My shipment more than 150 days on the road and now i'm scary how plastic can react to cold winter waiting for clearance for such a long time.

Why you still buying them, @Kuma Style if you don't like these toys?

I held off on getting the blue Eta (since I already have two copies of the Toynami. . . . I know :rolleyes:).

But the Zeta’s all-red scheme, slightly different gun, and all the positive reviews made me take the plunge.

The pink is definitely that bad in-hand (Toynami on the left, Sentinel on the right):

. . . which is why I had to paint the figure (and bike too):

I agree wholeheartedly with all of this although SO FAR the Hourqet hasn't seemed nearly as wobbly. We'll see how it handles come review time.

And I appreciate that and agree. I hate the way the watermarks look (I make sure to save the photos unmarked as well,) but man folks gave zero bleeps when it came to improper use and I've noticed it's calmed down tenfold since doing this.

Because I'm a collector and their display presence greatly outweighs my dismay towards handling them.

Good to hear. Be nice if there comes a day when people have enough respect and courtesy to enjoy the art rather than attempting to claim it as their own.  Better for us all.

Totally valid. Got a lot of toys that are a PITA to handle, but there's something about them that's awesome that makes you want to have them regardless.

Concur; brilliant job @Mog. She should have come like that.

Well, still wondering about Jupiter Base uniform even though it will be a fan art.
I mean I managed to thought up first liberation uniforms due to uniforms from old soldiers, but not much for JB other than Houqet/Rook armor (assuming if she didn't give a new paint or originally intended to be like Stig, except from Jupiter).
