    Just put a piece of tape over the tip or anything else to create a barrier between the tip and any paint and you should be fine.

    But there used to be a stand called the YetiStand, designed, made and sold by a poster here. He stopped making them a few years ago but the basic design has been copied and is now offered as the ArchiStand. Premium Collectibles Display Stands

    These are the best stands you can currently get for Valk display. Very configurable, look fantastic and hold your figures extremely well.

    Seems that they're completely out of the actual stand bases and whatnot, though.

    The x on the chest. Isn't that from the cartoon with 2 guys (blond, dark hair) and 1 girl in planes go into robot? Guy and girl in shin, dark guy in chest? Has an ova movie with the girl being in coma iirc with flashbacks etc.

    I didn’t look at stock but these are made in small batches so you need to get them quick. But they seem to restock often as well so just check back or send them a message. I think they are just another small group of fans doing this out of the need from our small community.

    GoShogun? That’s one of the more popular super robots I don’t have much memory of growing up. I know I have a little figure of it but it was less cool of a design compared to my others and I don’t think I ever saw the anime.

    She definitely struck a nerve with a fanbase. Every time I'd search for Might Gaine, I'd see some obscure figurine or kit of her. It's rare for any of the human characters in Brave, even the main characters, to get dedicated merch.

    I wouldn’t be too picky about the minor dents and dings on the DX 1j & GBP box @Lord of Lard as that is one of the most desirable DX Full Sets that you can get (the DX 19 Full Set is the another option if you have the extra funds, but be aware of the possibility of the antennae being snapped in half when you do get it and super tight leg joints).

    @fschuler - The weight of the DX 1j & GBP set peanuts in comparison to the HMR Monster. With all that die cast in the feet on the HMR Monster, that can literally do some damage to an unsuspecting intruder’s noggin if you fully go full force in that direction and take a quite a beating. The DX 1j & GBP will not survive at all as it all meant to fall apart anyways (bulky as hell).

    How is the mobility of the armored DX? I am actually pretty impressed by how well the Arcadia still moves with all that shit stuck to it.

    The DX 1j & GBP’s mobility is like any other DX that is out there as of right now. I honestly like the Yamacadia version slightly more than the HMR version

    The DX VF-1J is pretty hefty with the GPB set on. For the most part, the articulation isn't too badly affected, but I'd worry about the ball joints loosening up over time if you have it anything other than a standing straight up pose.

    Congrats, @Lord of Lard! It's a great set and really stands out on a shelf, and not just because of its chonk. The VF-1J itself is also pretty damn great.

    Kiki is water based from what I heard and you can wash it off if you’re not satisfied.

    Wotafa uses Liquidtex (possible spelling error) from what he mentioned in one of his past reviews.

    Clear nail polish works but you’re going to put a shit load of it before it works out. Hell with that.. Use Locktite and fuse it permanently so you don’t have to screw around with it anymore. :ev:
