When I was a kid I got a subscription to MRR for my birthday each year. One year, my mother subscribed to Classic Toy Trains instead. Instead of reading interesting articles about planning and building operational railroads with beautiful, realistic scenery, I got to spend that year reading about fuckugly plastic buildings sitting on a flat green table while Lionel trains ran in circles. I never told her her mistake, because I know that she was trying her best, but that was the worst fucking year of my life.

Go shove all 3 rails down your urethra.

N scale has several different couplers available. The first type developed, the Rapido coupler, looks unrealistic but was the standard for a long time. If you buy older equipment, it probably has that. Kadee (today Microtrains) developed a realistic looking knuckle coupler, but because of patent-hoarding they didn't become widespread. In the early 2000s their patent expired and other companies began making similar knuckle couplers, all of which tend to be mutually compatible with each other. Generally, the standard today is these couplers, but some people still roll with Rapidos because of the cost of converting or because they like the extra space between cars for ease of uncoupling.

To uncouple, it depends on the type. For Rapidos, you can press down on one coupler and then push the cars apart. Many people use toothpicks for this. For knuckle couplers, you insert an object in the connection and twist. There are commercially available tools (the Rix Pick), or some people use a skewer or toothpick. For this though, you do have to file down one edge to make it look like a flathead screwdriver. Lastly, some people just use magnetic uncouplers, especially on yard leads. These work much better with knuckle couplers than with Rapidos

There are some guys who knock out a Lionel layout that is legitimately nice and expertly crafted. For some reason there are others which just recreate the store front display. The latter is boring. The former is clumsy. Lionel shit isn't in scale, per-se, and most people don't paint or weather it so...

I don't know, it seems insane to for a business to have this kind of demand for a product and then not give it a wider release than a single event. Even if they change the packaging and leave out the raptor stand thing, it'd be fine at retail pricing.

I dont blame you. theyre great, but theyre also about $30 each for a 3in transformer that turn into useless cubes.
>>
>>7599352
Most Transformers just turn into useless cubes with wheels anyway. I like the uniformity of the cube altmodes, it's interesting seeing them get creative with all the possible transformations they can wring out of a single shape.

Also, $30 is whatever, you gotta expect this kind of stuff when you're supporting smaller companies. The likes of Hasbro and Bandai can afford to charge less because they're making massive runs at once.

I'm a simple man, but I've never regretted any of my Beast Box purchases. I collect a few lines that are a lot more expensive, but brought me far less enjoyment and heaps of disappointment. Its a big part of why I just dived right in and started hunting down every past figure I could get ahold of. The box form is really convenient for storage, display and for creating a uniform aesthetic. Its a design challenge to take a cool animal and translate it into a cube capable robot while bringing some animal specific gimmicks to the table.

On AmiAmi right now they have a pink and blue storage box with some package damage (but probably no product damage) on discount. Or you can get them pristine. Shipping can be a tiny bit obnoxious from there but almost guaranteed to be shipped safely. Maybe toss in a new figure to make the shipping more worthwhile.

I wish they tried to facilitate 1:18th scale cockpits, the 1:38th pilots might be amusing for novelty's sake but i'm not going to populate that scale in my collection just to fit in with these. They should look fine next to 1:18th scale figures though.

Not the best pic and I can try and take more detailed close ups over the weekend, but it's more or less the way they wear pelts from Game of Thrones. The strap (made of leather lacing) goes through two holes in the back of the neck while also being glued in place. It then wraps around her chest and clasps together on her back so it's fully removable. Took me all of a half hour and used stuff you can get at most craft stores for like less then $20 bucks.

Also, the elbow cloths and skirt are pieces stolen from a Toybiz LotR Arwen. I got her Rider set to give my Gwendolyne a white horse but threw the figure in the parts bin. When the 4H first showed off the Ice Elf, it was like they made her just so I had someone to use Arwen's parts for. I've said it a hundred times and I'll say it a hundred more, the old Toybiz LotR figures are almost perfectly sized for the Mythic Legions figures to steal all their stuff. I have a box of stripped naked LotR figures, most I've gotten for dirt cheap, because so much of their soft goods or overlay gear can be popped right onto the legions.
