For those waiting, Metroplex is on sale at Target now for about $133 or less if you have RedCard.
It's a regular sale, not red card
I got one this past Sunday
Both online and in store
Well, someone wasn't skipping leg day, now were they?
I love the robot mode (proportions, head sculpt, colors, details) of this, but the alt mode is kinda lame and I don’t enjoy large figures. It'd be cool if Newage did one, though.
My poor wording - I meant it would be even less if you were paying via RedCard.
So I'm wandering around a target in Tennessee looking for figures and I find this guy in a pile of clearance stuff (plushes, barbies,etc) found him for the price of 90$ (104$ after taxes) and so far while messing with him he is really fun, minor complaint is his abb crunch is loose and will start to give out if he's holding his axe with two hands
I got him for Christmas from one of my friends, but one of his antennae is broken off. I could hear it rattling inside the box. I tried some Krazy glue, but it didn't hold. Anyone have an idea for a better fix?
Epoxy. Once that’s bonded it’s going to be stronger than the plastic itself.
Yesterday we did sort of a "grafting" thing where one of my other friends drilled a hole in the antenna, put a thing piece of plastic sprue from a gunpla kit in, then glued it. Haven't checked if it held.
Will putting epoxy on surface that's already had glue on it affect the integrity of the adhesiveness?
If I had to venture a guess, I'd say that as long as the glue is adhered and cured fully, then adding an epoxy over it shouldn't matter.
(unless of course there are opposing chemicals in each that lesson the bond of the epoxy)
I'd go with you're probably fine.
If that previous glue is dried it should be fine.
bit more risky but y ou could try using a plastic welder? i've done it a few times with snapped plastic and it's worked OK
Okay cool. This was the glue we used, which we both use all the time for bot repairs. I had tried this by itself before we did the "gunpla graft" and it didn't hold.
I know it's random, but can somebody show him next to either Power of the Primes or Wei Jiang Predaking? I wanna see how they scale
Also if anybody can show him with his legs extended and collapsed, that'd be great
