    Heads up, there is apparently some bullshit going on with a fake webstore.
    Important notice:

    We’ve received multiple reports of a fraudulent website that has appeared over the last week that is using our name and logo on their web pages in conjunction with prices far below MSRP. We have seen stores like this before that appear as middlemen for fraudsters, functioning through the following methods:
    You check out on their site, getting an extremely good deal on an item that seems too good to be true.
    The site stores YOUR payment information in their database, which likely comprises multiple sites.
    The site then uses a previous customer’s information to buy the kit you just ordered from a legitimate webstore—in this case, ours—using the billing and shipping address provided to them at checkout. (This way you still get your kit, although it comes from us, not the other store. This is why they’re using our logo: to minimize suspicion and buy time to continue building their database of payment methods.)
    This creates a cycle of fraudulent purchases that are disputed repeatedly, meaning that we lose our product and anyone who doesn’t dispute the fraudulent charges loses their money.
    To clarify through an example, this store sells a PG GP01, a $210 kit, for $68. If you buy that kit, that store knows you are expecting to receive it and they have to get it to you even though they don't actually have it. The store takes your information you enter during checkout and proceeds in 1 of 2 ways: they either use your payment information to buy from us, or they use another of their customer's information to do so. In the event they use yours, you will see a $210 transaction in addition to the $68 one that you expected and you will report it as fraud. Otherwise, another customer will see a $210 transaction that they didn't authorize at all, and they'll also report that as fraud. Either way, the business keeps your original payment to them and we lose our product entirely in addition to fraud settlement fees.

    We want to make it abundantly clear that any domain that is not “GundamPlanet.com” or “Figurise.com” does not operate in affiliation with us in any way. We also want to make it clear that you can rest assured that all of your payment information is 100% secure when you make a purchase from our site. Every transaction uses Braintree's encryption services so nothing is visible to any human during the transaction process.

    Please make sure to avoid suspicious-looking sites, especially ones that seem to appear out of nowhere with a full inventory, and let us know when you see anyone using our name, logo, or graphics without authorization. You can also check business addresses and phone numbers to see if it seems like a legitimate establishment. We appreciate your understanding with this madness!

    1 more update cause I really wanted to get the torso in a displayable state.

    If you didn't guess from the waist it's pretty obvious now that I am building the MG Barbatos.

    Backside. I left off the parts the silver pistons connect to cause I am undecided between just gunmetal or a 2 tone color using the same gold on the ahab reactors on the half the pistons go in.

    The MG Wing Zero Custom Ver. KA is looking good. The bird mode is awesomely goofy looking.

    Really looking forward to this one.

    recognised it right away since this is what I am working on too haha

    I'm contemplating going back and doing some painting once I've put it together, since it seems real easy to take the armour plates off for airbrushing!

    So, uh, yeah. I normally lurk this thread, and everywhere else here, but I just got some models in from Flame Toys, won them in a giveaway, woo! I've built a couple of the motorized Zoids, a couple of Wing Zeros, and a couple cars in the past, but I haven't built any kind of model in, at least, two decades. I hope these will turn out good.

    Here are the models, putting them in a spoiler just in case:

    oooh, good set! Have fun with that! I pass on the Flame Toys stuff because I already own toys of all that, but there are some really impressive ones. Like, check out Drift. I kinda regret passing on him, in fact.

    Yeah, I went through a few HG IBO kits. Barbatos Lupus was ok. But honestly, Gusion was my favorite. I’d love to see what could be done with RG.

    Built the RG Evangelion. It was a fun build. Nice change of pace from Gundam. But not really planning on going back for more.

    I think RG kits are where it’s at for me. Starting on the FA Unicorn... so far, I have the feet.

    In my opinion, the Wing Zero Custom's wings were a cool idea that fit well with the over-the-top style that series went for. But they never looked as good outside of the animation, which cheats a fair bit to make them more life-like. When you really focus on them, even this upcoming kit's wings seem noticeably less 'future robot' and more 'plastic toy' than the rest of it does.

    It's still an awesome kit. There's just something about the design of the wings that always seemed a bit underwhelming to me.

    I won't lie - I am REALLY afraid of doing the RG Crossbones because of how smol it is. I just don't know if I can do that!

    I'm still waiting for my P-Bandai orders to come in. I asked my local store to get me the PG Unicorn LED kits (and ideally a Banshee Norn), but I haven't heard anything about that will end up. And yes, I'm all about those lighting solutions. :D

    RG Crossbone doesn't have a skeleton like the other RGs do. But it still has a bunch of small parts!

  • TNTrooperTNTrooper Registered User regular
    RG Crossbone is a 1/144 MG like the Nu Gundam. It's a good kit.
