>ANIME Ginn is a easy and fun figure to play around with, and tempted to get more with the cheaper prices I see it go for on Mandarake

Haven't had the chance to take pics in a while, but I'm also enjoying the Ginn! My one criticism would be the difficulty to get it standing due to the backpack, but that's the design of the MS. And you gotta get a second one to outfit it with the ZAFT weapon set parts, haha.

>>10240074
I highly recommend the Zaku II Kai (0080 model)! I'm a bit biased as it's one of my favorite models, but the RD is excellent with a superb spread of accessories with multiple display options. Does have hip joints that are tad too stiff, but they get smoother if you work 'em back and forth a bit. Also, pretty much all the MSV Zakus are rad as heck, but unfortunately they're web exclusives that are pretty pricey now. GMs are superb too! Can't really go wrong with any of the various models.

>>10240557
>>10241248
I preordered it but both of you are absolutely correct, it's gonna be a bear to display and will likely spend most of its time boxed up or collecting dust. My reasoning to preorder though, is that this is probably the only opportunity to get it and if came to regret passing on it after release, the aftermarket prices will likely be prohibitive. Shipping costs alone are gonna be astronomical for aftermarket GN Arms. On US P-Bandai, I'm paying 10 bucks for shipping (combined with 4 other items that ship the same month too) and you just can't beat that! That's what I tell myself to distract from the pricetag anyways, haha.

I suppose I have 7 months to figure it out. I recently moved and have some space to get some display shelves. Billys from Ikea have wide enough shelves for me to put the figure in longways, but they're only 11 inches deep so I don't how much I could get out of the GN arms other than a side profile.
>>
>>10241612
They fucked up the Aerial. You're better off buying the Robot Spirits instead. At least that one can do the Bit gimmick

>>10241587
It probably does ok business just from foot traffic at Target and comic book stores. Remember these are designed to be cheap and accessible like Marvel Legends. And a few of them (e.g. Ez8, Sazabi) do manage to punch above their weight in the price range.

Someone should've warned me the HMR Roundfacer has a spring loaded chest piece gimmick, because I'm having a hard time curbing my enthusiasm over how it keeps misaligning itself.
It's a cool way to implement a deformation effect into the toy's articulation though.

Well that's not going to help me with the fact I ordered several of them!
By the end of it all I'll have at least 3 of the 40th anniversary version (and only at least 3 because the 4th is in a limbo where I can't tell for sure if the seller had a clerical error and reported nonexistent inventory, they were quick to respond they were looking into it when I asked but I haven't heard any new developments so far and I'm not a fan of badgering people incessantly as if I'm somehow the most important customer in the room)

unsure whether to look into preordering Sentinel's new Gurren Lagann- now with 45% more anime accuracy and 100% more gattai gimmickry- or keep looking for one of the older ones

your thoughts/advice, Sirs?

I'm pretty firm on believing that gundam universe is a good idea. If some kid is watching something on youtube or whatever, being able to walk into a target or whatever and buy a big, sturdy representation of their favorite robot for 20 bucks is great. But christ, I just wish they weren't so bad. I've gotten at least one from every wave, and they're all just full of unforced errors.

Been thinking about dipping my toe into some Macross DX Chogokins. Was looking at the Max YF-29 and the retail release of the Hayate VF-31AX next month. I’ve heard the whole line is a mixed bag of QC, but what sort of stuff am I getting into?

Trying to find a Scopedog for a reasonable price that isn't a model kit feels like a shit shoot. Are the old Takara Actic Gear figures worth checking out?
>>
>>10244289
The 31AX's fit and finish for the arms has historically been off by a bit leading to arms that don't quite seem to tab in right which ends up sucking massive dick when up until that point the 31 sculpt was perhaps the most well engineered DX Valk sculpt in Bandai's catalog with excellent fit and finish all around. The YF-29 tends to develop loose joints but that's a quirk of the Frontier line in general, the Delta toys are rock solid in comparison, even the Kairos Plus is still rugged as fuck joint wise.

Past that, there's still the Bandai QC silliness that comes with the scale of production they operate at. But if you can live with it... well, even then you have to endure scalper hell for any of the figures not in production. But the VF-1 Valkyrie is definitely one of the highlights of the DX lineup. The non-AX 31 family is also quite good but at this point every single one of them and/or the accessory parts sets for them becomes a scalper hell scenario; there's the 31J with Fold Projector release that's probably the most affordable of the Siegfrieds but you'll have to live knowing that the Super Parts for the 31J are a pretty penny themselves nowadays.

The 31AX Hayate re-release might prove to be worth keeping an eye on though. At the absolute worst it has the most support for accessory options, as it got both Super and Armored parts released for it, in addition to the Super Ghost set. It just remains to be seen if the arm fit situation in fighter mode gets any better.
>>
>>10244341
Threezero is making a 6in one
>>
>>10244386
Yeah, I had eyes on all those super packs for the VF-31AX, Zettai Live speaks to my soul, and being able to get the base 31AX for MSRP now sans special stand makes getting all the add-ons seem like a much better deal. As for the Durandal getting loose joints, I’m a bit of a fiend for Metal Robot Spirits, so as long as it doesn’t get loose any faster than they do I’ll be fine (and worst comes to worst there’s always the Valk mode being a display option). Still holding out hope for a VF-22 or Gamlin’s VF-17, those are my top two Valk designs, just a shame they’re a bit too niche to ever be done justice these days.
>>
>>10244402
It's just the way the 29 is constructed, it's very "diecast ball joint floppiness" if you get what I mean. The renewal VF25 sculpt, being derived from the 29's engineering, inherits those issues as well, and by the time of the 29 Max and the 25 Worldwide Anniversary the mold for those toys seems to really be getting ragged or something, or maybe Bandai's contracted manufacturing plant at the time got sloppy with their output.

As for me, I'm in the private hell of holding out for a modern take on the VF-11. The Thunderbolt just speaks to me, it's just this utilitarian no frills grunt of a machine and I love it.

I'd rather they ditch the transformation gimmick for a more solid figure if they do. They won't though, since it gives them an excuse to jack up the price.
>>
>>10247927
I find it unacceptable that they refused to include the activated GUND system parts for the price they're charging. No doubt they'll announce an "awakening ver" later this year on Pbandai with all the bells and whistles included.

>>10248370
MRDs are smaller, cheaper and usually sculpted in a direction towards anime or lineart accuracy.
I think the GFF line approach is to look more realistic and emphasize the machine aspect of the designs.
MB is stylized redesigns and nowadays just seems like they've gone the chinese plamo builder route of "how much shit can we slap on this mecha?"
>>
>>10248652
Unless it's an Ebikawa design in which case it's reasonably on point with lineart.

Youre not wrong. I collect MBs and red frame is the prime victim of this. Dragonic and this, especially this, are the worst. I love RFK but they butchered the tactical arms with that insanely shitty handle.
>>
>>10248660
>>10248661
The MB line started with Ebikawa's designs which makes me think that's the reason why the MBs based on his work are more reserved and in continuity than the others.
I don't know if Junichi Akutsu or Okawara give any direction when it comes to the SEED MBs. But Ebikawa is very much involved, the MB line is like his Ver.Ka.
>>
>>10245707
You're mean
>>
>>10248685
It could also be that there's natural overlap on Ebikawa's style and the MB line's love for exposed metal elements, while other designs would be reworked to better emphasize those elements. Or something.

Half of a bracket for holding the sheath of a monomolecular cutter for a 1/60 Alter AlMecha M9 Gernsback. For some reason back when they sculpted out the figure a decade or so ago they thought that the bracket clip thing should be two halves that peg together, and not a hinged part like what the Metal Builds would go with later on.

Worst case scenario I'm going to go find the cheapest used equivalent on ebay and cannibalize the parts. I'm pretty sure the ancient decrepit original release Arbalest figure in that same line has the same set of brackets and that thing was rendered obsolete by a later revised reissue.

Is it just me or is the GM Cold Districts type really hard to find secondhand? I never ever see them for sale on AmiAmi or Mandarake and on Ebay they have relatively high prices.
I've got the vanilla GM, GM Cannon, Light Armor, Command, Type C, and most recently Ground, but I'd really like a Cold Districts to round out my "unique grunts".

The figures are good, the stands suck ass though. For how often the Arbalest and such are jumping around they have awful stands that couldn't possibly do an aerial pose.

I've never watched a single episode of Dunbine but I'm completely in love with the Sirbine design. I can't think of any other mecha that I love without any context of the source material.
Is this going to be hard to get? Is it the kind of thing that sells out instantly on AmiAmi or will it be a P-Bandai release that US buyers have some time to get their hands on?

I've not had a Gundam Chogokin, just the Gipsy Danger.

Paint apps and decals everywhere, looks really nice as a display piece, just doesn't feel like it's quite as sturdy.

What are those cords that connect to the Guns for? I can't imagine they're power cords since the arms they use in FMP are just scaled up conventional weapons.
>>
>>10252838
Unclear, at least for me, the one guy who read the books rather than watch the anime.
It's most likely a power cable, the 57mm Bofors gun shown with the cable jutting out of it? Mechanically identical to the very same Bofors 57mm in the real world, or so I've heard. That'd make it an electronically fired autocannon, so instead of some firing pin smacking into a primer setting off an explosive reaction and all that you instead have an electrical zap that does the work.

And so my guess is that the cable is to provide that zap.
If it isn't that, then it's probably for fire control data linking. The 76mm sniper cannon in the past has been portrayed with a cable shoved into it, but hell that could be the same case of electronically fired action.

The weapon systems in FMP can get a little crazy though, since while they ape the aesthetic of infantry weapons they actually tend to derive from the combat vehicle arms industry, like the aforementioned Bofors battle 'rifle'

Why didn't they just label this and the crossbone under the A.N.I.M.E line? It's basically what they are.

So they can release a slightly different deco as Ver A.N.I.M.E, duh.

Yeah it has these neat hands to let you do the beam spin from the movie.
I don't even think the Metal Build has these.
>>
>>10253262
They didn't feel equivalent to ANIME figures at all in terms of engineering or sculpt. I think this was an attempt at a cheaper subline with less focus on accuracy like old RDs used to be but both figures bombed.

>I don't even think the Metal Build has these.
MB doesnt ever come with effect parts outside of the full package SF/Destiny

It is out of scale of the anime line. It needs to be at least a head shorter than very other OYW suits. This thing is like bigger than RD gundam

A shame because The figure is great though. It certainly is the best thing on the market for F91 considering how horrible HGUC is and lack of decent range movement with the MG 2.0. the 1.0 is like better looking HG in term of style, but it isn't the proper F91 look

My only regret is not picking up a second VF-1D as a diorama spare and donor for another flight suit Hikaru.

But I really
REALLY
need to reign this compulsion in at some point. Like, I already have the 2nd 1S to play as TV Hikaru's Skull 1 complete with TV super parts.

Maybe I'm biased but I feel the 1.0 RD F91 is a much more premium figure despite the lower price. Better size, accessories, and more sculpting and paint details
>>
>>10256253
Agreed, I vastly prefer the 1.0.

Not mine, but I'm looking forward to my own case full of Angelbirds.
Apparently this bad boy can fit 6 of them, all in their own shipper boxes!

I agree with the other Anons, I like the first F91 RD better than the Evolution, the first one feels much closer to the Okawara lineart, the evolution has these weird changes I do not like, specifically the thick, stubby upper legs and the stretched out lower legs. The head and shoulders on the evolution seem too big, too.

I wish they would have made a Heavygun RD. It is my favorite GM, and Bandai avoids making models and toys of it like the fucking plague.
>>
>>10256253
I meant on the market now

I have the old one too, it is also great. The only problem with my is the plastic they used at the time have this weird time discolor time to time and my was rather bad.

Considering the old RD is out of print you pretty much have to pay ass price for it second hand the new one is the obly choice for cheap

And by 1.0 I meant the MG

>Heavygun
I mean, they did make a RE/100 of it recently. But generally I agree, they don't make enough Heavygun content. I feel the same way about my baby, the Vigna Zirah. The RE/100 of it was a big disappointment IMO.
>>
>>10257083
>I mean, they did make a RE/100 of it recently.
No they didn't. I would have been all over that if they made a RE/100 kit of it. The only kit of the Heavygun that exists is the original kit made back in 1991, which is what I will have to settle for I guess.

I don't get why the RD Aerial doesn't use the HG's gimmick it's a lot more efficient.

Also it's quite a shame that none of the Aerial's toys have been able to make the shield work without a backing piece like this, especially considering it's the main gimmick.
It really highlights the difference between experienced mechanical/toy designers like Ebikawa or Katoki from JNTHED who is coming from a less functional artistic background.
>>
>>10262074
It really doesn't need that backplate at all considering Lfrith works just fine without one.

what other stuff could have came instead with the mystery box? also I cant figure out if its more correct to have the katana sheathed edge up or down

as far as I knwo, you could get either the blue sowrd you got, the rifle I got (which has a black paint job) or another eyepatch (lol) but for the left eye

This one is really a cool Main character/hero Mecha.

I wish it was a little smaller but for others I guess this is a plus
>>
>>10262170
Katana are worn edge up, traditionally. A cavalry sword like the tachi would be worn edge down.
>>
>>10262838
Or, to be more specific, they're forged with the expectation that you wear on the left side, that they're mounted such that the smith's inscription would face out and away, and that consequently for a traditional uchigatana/striking sword worn in the usual fashion of tucked through the obi, blade up is the norm.
Something to do with optimizing for ease of draw on foot I think, if you do the motions irl the curve ends up being in a very natural place to work alongside your arms' natural articulation. That said, for a giant robot I'd just say do whatever looks coolest to you.
>>
>>10262074
Bandai's gunpla engineers are the best in the business so I'm sure they could have made the combining shield gimmick work they wanted. They probably found that doing so sacrificed too much in the way of stability that a simple back piece was a cleaner solution.
