    Mr. Ral / @turtleant will be happy : the MS-09R-35 Dom R35!
    a2c6sphw6g6h.jpg
    It has knee-claws and elbow-claws! Knee-claws I can understand (knee in the nuts and squish the squishy bits) but elbow claws?
    gdrzfcf4p9z8.jpg
    The right arm has the shield in spiky-punchy position. Note that the lightblue on the spiky-shield-bit is one big sticker.
    The left arm has the shield in shooty-gun-position.
    f3kshsnrgxwb.jpg
    I do think that the gun will still hit a bit of the shield, but who am I to question Mr. Ral?

    This thing has plenty of thrusters. Even 2 boob thrusters!
    The rear middle thrusters can also be placed in a lower position.

    Good things about the kit :
    - Great colour scheme
    - Fun build
    - Shields that can be configured in 3 positions (classic/shooty/spiky-punch)
    - Impressively chunky
    - Moveable monoeye which is behind a clear visor

    Lesser good things about the kit :
    - Big sticker on the shields
    - Not a lot of articulation; the head can barely turn, the torso can barely turn; the shields block a lot of arm articulation
    - This boy must suffer from chafed ankles, because it is almost impossible to pose this guy without the legs touching
    - The leg thrusters are a bit too moveable; when posing the kit you will be moving those thrusters involuntary

    It does strike an amazing figure on the shelf :biggrin:
    I can heartily :+1: this kit!

    He's a little back-heavy, so I see an action base in my future. Still, it was a great kit and a fun build. 9.5/10 would definitely recommend.

    Everything is turning up Athenor!

    The re-arranging of my lego sets (see the Lego thread) has given me a ton of shelf room back. Originally my perfect grades were going to go where the city is now, but I think I like this layout better.

    And as a benefit, I can actually show my Perfect Grades together!

    Slapping some of the expansion pack stuff on. The 'reactive armor' doesn't seem as big as it did on the NG 1/100, but it's still p.good!

    A cool detail on the 1st Form wrist armor; it has the Barbatos power symbols on it. I always thought the 4th Form was the canonical "factory reset" version as it appeared in the Calamity War, but now I'm not sure, maybe that wrist is an indicator that it used to look very different...

    I think 4th is supposed to be it’s till out form, but given the nature of the CW it’s feasible that Barbatos might have had modifications as the war progressed; maybe the wrist armor is something like that, since it seems designed to have that light shield on it, and that’s the load out from when the unit was lost?

    Update! There's also a Barbatos symbol on the wrench mace, which definitely shouldn't be there. :P

    Oh brilliant

    The original Gundam has been on Funimation for a few months now.

    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?

    Ah, that would make a lot more sense than replacing the big guns with ball mounted machine guns or something similar.

    This was not worth the time it took me to get this pose to work.

    Edit: And not two minutes later and it came toppling down. Nothing broken, just a piece on the hand came loose and thus the bazooka hit the floor. A couple bits snapped out of place. I now know where glue should go in the future.

    Damn, I'd love to get that kit for a couple of reasons.

    First, I need more stuff in 1/72 scale. I always keep an eye out for kickass things at that scale because that's what Zoids are theoretically at.

    Second, my dad was in the Air Force in Vietnam, and worked as a mechanic on the fuel tanks of F4's and such. There was always art of them around my house growing up.

    Third, much of my early childhood was spent trying to play Chuck Yeager's Air Combat. When I could get past the copy protection, using a book we got from the Air Force museum in Dayton. My favorite jet to fly was the F4, thanks to the wild tail stabilizers and wing shapes.

    I know I have a 1/200 Yamato until I get the room to put it together it will continue to sit in the box
    But I looked around a couple of months ago to see what else was that scale Trumpeter makes a lot of battleships the titanic and the USS hornet and there is a whole other company that makes resin [as well as a real wood decking the various ships} to bring them up to another level
    This is a pic of the Titanic to give a sense of the scale
