I can't wait to see the final product for Zinnia.
Hot damn, I love the way those glow.
I ordered the GitD green for Zinnia. Love how it looks. Do you have any plans to make a red one? I would love that!
I got my Azalea!
Pros- Ridiculously poseable, and the foot stand means even action poses are easy. I've never had a figure so good at doing what I want!
Both car-mode and spaceship-mode are cool. Cool enough that despite the above I'd still be tempted to leave her in one of those two a fair amount of the time.
All accessories clipping on somewhere in every mode, even multiple options so she can hold 'em while having hands free, a big plus as I don't like keeping track of loose bits.
Comic has good art, though it's basically a variant of IDW Arcee's story. 'Psyaxus' rather than Jhiaxus, and such. Still, interesting enough that I think I'd read a longer comic set in this universe with these characters.
Cons- Azalea doesn't come across as quite as badass as IDW Arcee in the comic. Story's basically her medical treatment rather than her in action (rather than Arcee's 'kill him a bunch' therapy, Azalea is picturing doing so in her head while she's badly wounded. Badly wounded when he blew himself up to avoid her, but still).
Who came up with this transformation? Even watching videos it took me some doing to get it right. Still, got it eventually ^^ And I'm sure it'll be easier now that I know the tricks.
Cool. I love her a lot and MP Bee (taking too many shots of the two; LOL).
I still get stuck on the head tuck (can't seem to get that right and need to constantly need to fiddle around). Everything else is pretty straight forward and not difficult.
I have Zinnia still on the way (according to Post, it should arrive Monday) and I preordered the other 2 fembots.
Awesome!!!!! are you guys also going to make an IDW screaming Arcee head? I also saw the new Hex head in your Facebook, will you make a helmet for V1 Hex? and last question, do you have any add-on kits for M3/Menasor?
No plans for IDW Arcee head right now.
The new head will be for Hex V1 to make it look more like the V2 head.
I think GI Eddie has you covered for the M3 stuff.
is it going to be a whole head or the helmet? helmet would be much cooler.
The head I'm fairly good at. Getting the arms and legs to slot right on the sides is where I'm tripping up, getting the hands in the legs and keeping them there.
Is that blue or green?
oh man, yes! any chance of the chest panels and guns? dont need to be chrome
It's blue. I just hope they can get red working. That's one I really want.
More info about the aster blades can be found here:
Love the figure, but I am experiencing one problem.
After watching a couple of videos, I decided to transform the azalea for the first time. During the rotation of the region with her head, there's a small area you spin. After I did it for the first time, it got really loose. After inspecting, it appears that the screw sort of becomes undone depending on how you rotate it. I was wondering if anyone else had this issue. I was able to fix it by tightening the screw, but I'm scared to transform it as you need to rotate that region every time. Maybe I'm doing it wrong?
Sounds like you've got a problem, as mine spins just fine without loosening and the screw remains in place with the back piece. Maybe a dab of glue into the screw itself will help? Got to be very careful how you do it, though, as you don't want to glue the parts themselves together, just the screw to the back piece. Other than that, you might have to get in touch with where you bought it or MMC themselves for a replacement as it shouldn't be doing that.
Thanks, I might give the glue a try. It's not devastating but hopefully that does the trick.
I got an extra head for my pink Azalea several day ago. So I may try to repaint it to an IDW Spotlight head. Anyone know what paint scheme should I use? By the way I think Tamiya skyblue will be OK for her lips.
i used model masters silver for the face, gloss yellow for the eyes, and then tamiya clear blue for the lips
Available now on shapeways: https://www.shapeways.com/model/3007090/aster-blades-sword-coupler.html?li=aeTabs
A Sword Coupler to link two Aster Blades together and should work with any of the current MMC Fembot Swords.
should be a pre-order bonus for anyone getting the swords!
So… I just got my first Azalea mould (the pink one). Haven't attempted the transformation yet, but even before that:
Is there a trick to keeping the neck pegged in?
The slightest arm movement and it disconnects. If feels almost like there is something in the torso keeping it from seating completely…
Great poseability, but man she is fid-dee-lee…
