So far I only snapped one Moderoid kit, and the large injection points are really irritating. With the substancial number of parts of the Deer Stalker, it took forever to clean everthing up even before even glueing things together. I love the range of subjects in the line, but the kits are not cheap, and the engineering should be a bit better.

I didn’t really find them to be much different than the majority of other model companies. Bandai seems to be the only one doing little pin point connections and have spoiled a lot of builders recently.

Did you take any pics of the marks? Not sure what 'injection points' are. Maybe ejector pin marks?

Regardless, that's not the best news, not a deal breaker mind you, but still disappointing to hear.

 

I’m pretty sure he’s referring to how the sprue connects to the individual parts. As I said above they thick compared to Bandai, but pretty much where the rest of the companies are with them

I want the Robocop, so I can practice on metallics. There’s this subtle hints of color like blues and purples giving the movi version that heated titanium look, but in a softer way. I’d like to see if I can do it in small scale without overdoing it’s a challenge to myself.

Haven’t seen the anime for Bang Brave Bang Bravern, but the moderoid looks pretty cool. It’s pretty cheap as well at less than twenty bucks on preorder sales. Looks like this will be just over 4 inches, so that might be why it doesn’t cost as much as most of the recent moderoids. It’s listed as non scaleIMG_2435.jpeg.63defb04dffa1e157ae9df07413d5688.jpegIMG_2436.webp.247d2d7ee742c439d9cc7f0fd416cecd.webpIMG_2437.webp.13152bb2d84cc41325420e0402bcfd96.webp

I just finished the MODEROID Thunderjaw and it's one of my favorite mecha kits.

The kit's quality is great, but getting that paint scheme right was a huge challenge.

 

Looks like you met that challenge head on. Thanks for sharing

Amazing work R! The lack of a little Alloy figure to put this beast into scale is a little letdown. The kit turned out and looks fantastic! I really want to buy one, but so far all by Moderoid kits just collect dust partially snapped (Sterlitzia, Escaflowne, Big-O, and Evangelion 01...) Hope Goodsmile keeps up more kits from Horizion, so many good mecha designs.

Saw this video of the Moderoid booth and noticed this for a split second and couldn't believe my eyes...

Chouriki Robo Galatt wasn't very popular/well-known (designed by Kunio Okawara). The main mech Janbu only got one transforming kit which was limited to 80's tech partsforming ... a modern take on this is so welcomed.

I have two sets coming my way. The plan is one set in lions and the other in combined form obviously, however I've been trying to think of some spare parts I could use for leg covers, particularly on the arms and rears on the legs.
