Has anyone seen a Ko of the Takara Masterpiece Enemy? I've been looking to pick up the little guy
It's a fantastic toy, with a black magic transformation. It's definitely worth it.
@Scaleface ... white/burgundy starscream and the pink seeker? Prequels to the chms name? Or were they strictly kotoys releases?
I always just lumped em' into the chmsko releases.
You may have to just do what I did. I kept my eyes on various auctions, and including S&H I was able to get the set for £55 ($75 US approx). It may sound like a lot, but compared to what the set retails for , it was well worth it.
BTW I only got the set for Stripes.
Those two are not CHMS related to my knowledge.
Thanks vvvTheONEvvv and Scaleface for the info
Are those what people call the KOs of the eHobby Starscream Ghost 22 release? I honestly did not know there were KOs of this figure, so this is news to me and I'd love to be able to distinguish them from the original.
Were these hard to ID? i.e., did the KO company tried to replicate the original box and figure? or did the KOs come with a different box that allow people to distinguish them from the true eHobby? .. just trying to find a way to ID these KOs in an easy and painless way.. (unlike the Henkei ghost, that was an absolute pain...)
Hi guys! Any idea where to buy Oversized T30 Springer or Sandstorm? Thanks!
OS T30 Sandstorm has dried up in the past year. I haven't seen one on Ali or Ebay at a reasonable price in some time.
I've never seen a KO of the Springer
Hey everyone, what is in your "toolkit" for fixing up your 3rd party figures? I have heard Premium Vallejo Reducer 62.066 is good for tightening up joints, but I'm looking for something that can loosen them as well. I also need some kind of glue that works well with figures as I have figures like mpm jazz that arrived with both rearview mirrors ratting around in the package that need to be securely fastened. Would gorilla glue do the trick or is there something more practical for figures?
For joint loosening I usualy loosen the screws a bit, while ball joints can be loosened with WD-40.
Gorilla glue holds strong and has a decent amount of flex, but it takes quite a while longer than other superglue to dry, so be careful that whatever you're gluing doesn't shift out of alignment. For stuff like this I usually use loctite super glue, or any number of hobby glues that are formulated to set quickly.
Loosening: I haven't had that issue, but I constantly hear silicone oil is great.
Tightening: Tamiya X22 clear acrylic. More resilient than Pledge Floor polish in my experience and dries in minutes, to boot
Adhesives: I use krazy glue most of the time, but also highly recommend Tamiya ABS cement for ABS plastic. Best bond for ABS I've ever seen, and I've experimented with a lot while building customs
Anyone know what this is? Are there more? and where can I get them??
ooop! possibly solved
Thanks for the IDs!
Ultra Dino Force. There's a series 2 as well. Some combiner sets and deluxe versions.
Ultra Dino Force, some of my absolute favorite study and chunky bots. This is probably the weakest of the five, but they are all fun.
Shame they had to kill these with the crap v2 that are all you can find now. They basically took the v1, muted the colors and glued a bunch of extra crap on them. Don't know if they were trying for a "busier" look to go after Bayverse fans or something, but it's truly pathetic and ruins what was a great line. Not to mention the plastic quality feels a little crappier on the single v2 I was unfortunate to end up with.
I need it.
A bootleg of AUTHENTICS Megatron?! Now I've seen everything.
【Pre-Orders】Toyseasy TEY-JS-01 Xing Tian Type 055 Destroyer
anyone know if there’s a thread for this guy and the other cruiser and battleships they’re making?
