    The plastic comes colored and will look fine out of the box so painting is optional. Some panel lining and a top coat will make it look a lot better for a minimal money and time investment.

    I looked at a few videos of a top coat and its pretty glossy, I'm not sure I want to go that route.

    Looking for inspiration with more of my chunky bois.

    I don't plan on biting off more than I can chew, but I can definitely afford to take my time.

    Most people go with matte for topcoat. Not shiny at all.

    now, i'm not saying you should buy a Jesta Cannon before you've even started on the others, but

    you should buy a Jesta Cannon next

    Ok, so saw this in the Big Bad Toy Store sale and figured I could ask here. What the heck is this? Is it a model or something else?

    Robot Spirits is an action figure line. That specific product looks like it's just a Neo Zeong that can fit a Sinanju (not included) and a bunch of display stands for posing the Unicorn (also not included)

    yeah robot spirits or robot damashii are high end action figures

    Betsuni
  • HefflingHeffling No Pic EverRegistered User regular
    Yeah, the Robot Spirits stuff are action figures in the 1/144 scale, like high grade or real grade Gundam. The reason this is so much less than the $400 Neo Zeong is because it's actually only about a third of the model, with just the Torso and Arms. The HG kit has the waist, boosters, and 4 additional arms that make up the backpack.

    If a movement doesn't have someone that can sit down opposite those in a position of power and strike a deal, how can that movement achieve success?

  • BetsuniBetsuni Insert Disk 4 and Press Any Key to Continue Registered User regular
    Ahhh gotcha ok. Thanks! I thought it was odd that a model would not include the other parts to make it complete.

    Think my wife has some of those action figures but I didn't remember the name.

    You're not derailing. We've got at least one collector of the Mobile Suit In Action (MSIA) action figures in the thread. We all love giant robot toys here.

    Cool. Well I found out that the figures my wife had were not the MISA figures. So at least I know now.

    The plastic comes colored and will look fine out of the box so painting is optional. Some panel lining and a top coat will make it look a lot better for a minimal money and time investment.

    What you want in a topcoat is something that is very matte, because one thing military equipment does not try to do is be shiny, and thus easier to see and shoot. Products like Dullcote are popular for this.

    This could go into the Transformers thread, but I think it fits better here.

    Holy FUCK does the new Jetfire toy need one hell of a panel lining session. Siege is all about tons of surface detail and grebeling, and with an all-white model it really doesn't look great.

    This just... screams for the panel line marker.

    When you decide to put a project on hold cause you are on the water slide step and want to build stuff. So you start a new project that also comes with water slides...

    The friend that Carl helped hook up with Shadow Fox is going to Japan in December.

    As such, he's offered to run by the Kotobukiya store.

    I might get my Gojulas at a reasonable price!

    Is that the Ozma Custom? Because I bought that kit last month and it just arrived. I'm in the same boat, I'm putting waterslides on my RG Sazabi.

    Yeah its Ozma's Armored Messiah Valkyrie. Got it last night and built the base to get those bulky runners out of the way and just finished the cockpit.

    it's more fun this way! also helps to have an action base while you armor it up

    you're in luck, the RG Nu is out pretty soon

    here's a cool trailer! (makes sense that they already have all these 3d models for their kits so why not animate them)



    and a 20 minute hands on with the actual kit

    Oh, I should ask my friend to get the one with twin funnel racks on its back when he goes to Japan.

    Sorry, one winged angels just aren't my thing. :)

    Also - because EVERYONE is talking about it and because the OG Gundam isn't available for streaming anywhere, I'm watching Evangelion. Currently through episode 6.

    i have the strong impression that Angel #4 might be one of the easiest gunpla models ever.

    I like the under construction action base. Totally stealing that if I do an inner frame first build.

    well shit, i jinxed myself and broke the sazabi's adapter piece for action base

    might see if i can salvage it with epoxy, worst case i'll have to drill a hole for regular pegs into the kit
