    My daughter has been looking out for these kits. I might grab one as well since I have a bunch of 30min stuff. My only gripe is the thighs are all flesh-colored. I would like some armor that extended up there as well or to paint those parts to match the clothes.

    Huh, I didn't realize they had released a "body" option set already.
    I was bugged that the stock release had the standard "petite" form-factor that all mecha-musume figures seem to have.

    As an uncle to a smart niece with a craft habit, I totally agree.

    While it's still unfinished (backlogged because.. argh), this is why the Weapon Girl that came with the MJH RG Astray Upgrade set, has all the skintoned bits in the torso painted red.

    Cute is fine, but I don't like the lewd loli look.

    Make it look like Enuka Okuma and she's perfect.

    Reminds me of Tigris from the old Busou Shinki line.

    I saw one of the new body add-ons has clothing on the thighs but the most revealing torso. I might have to give her to modest parts and I will make my own with the leftovers. But I do want to see who I can add with the robot limbs. Seems one of the neck joints lets you put their heads on the bodies mech bodies as well.

    I noticed in the review the hair set comes in a case. It makes sense why they are so expensive. You are getting them all. I would like some of the spare heads, but I really don't want to buy a case.

    From what I saw, you can buy spare faces in a set: 4 different faces with 3 expressions each (total of 12 faces) for ~3500yen
    Or get just one face (3 expressions) for ~900yen.

    Hair looks like it comes in a set of 4 different styles for ~2200yen.


    I honestly would like some blank faces, so that I could decal or paint in the eye-style that I want.

    I'll keep an eye out then. I like options. I hope the line does well so we keep seeing new stuff come out.


    I am working out my build list for the test of the summer since I am painting outside. I would like to do some research into using my paint boot and proper ventilation.

    I grabbed a volks Vlockers Cosmo and finally got all my paint to do my FSS KOG.

    I am thinking this winter I will finally do my pg Unicorn since I don't plan on painting it due to all the moving parts. My daughter thinks I should get the LEDs so I might check out the daban lights. I'll likely leave it in glow mode since I have a coated MG version for Unicorn mode.

    If I finish my custom Metro Plex and it is still warm out I may pick another to paint.

    Sounds like a plan for modest powered armor.... and a salon.

    I love this thread. Who knew a Transformers forum could house Bovine pics, P-Bandai rants, mecha girls and now a Gunpla Builder's contest champ all in one place. Great job Anubis!

    We like to keep things fun in here.
    With regards to the cows, glad you like the pictures.

    MS-54X-F2 Nemo loves her fans.
    Whether it's the ones named aftered Mobile Suits, my Moobile Sweeties, or the ones I'm hands on with, I always say "I built that!" so it's a loophole to the crafting rule of this thread.

    Here's one that doesn't get a lot of attention in this thread since he's one of my Moobile Bull Son types, MBS-17X-F2 Crowe. Though technically he's my G3: third generation bull, solid gray model. ... he likes to give hugs.

    haha I agree the cows are the best part!

    ——-

    I managed to finish applying all the decals yesterday on Sandrock. This had way more decals than I expected :lol  Today is flat coat and I need to paint some details I missed on the head :mad:

    i just missed out on the AUG. release of this sweetie. i LOVE her little face♥
    she disappeared in a flash, so i'll have to find a way to ensure that i can secure one when BANDAI surely runs off another printing.

    unless, someone can possibly point me out to a first-run copy out there that is available at or near-retail?

    Looks like she's still slated as a Preorder/September release for a lot of US stores like BBTS, USA-GS, and Galactic Toys.

    Are any of you applying a dull coat on top of stickers? I didn’t use any on zgok cause they stand out too much.

    Also, this kit is pretty good. I think some of the segments on the limbs are a little sus but they have stayed on so far.

    No it's just a rule of Bandai: if it's out in Japan now it'll be in the US by next month.

    she's getting an official domestic U.S. release?!?
    perhaps i stand a perfectly decent chance of picking her up after all!!

    (i strongly suspect a product such as her's is hardly the sort that is at all likely to instantly sell-out any time soon in the Western market)

    at any rate;

    Absolutely. Decals, stickers, anything with a visible edge that shouldn't be. A matte topcoat can make even the smallest decals look painted on.

    So...when will you airbrush one of Halden's cows?

    I've yet to really try this, I'm worried that with stickers the dullcote will fog them up and I've never had the chance to try this experiment. Waterslides I'll use dullcote on absolutely no problem.
