    I honestly wasn't as impressed with Goafoghgar and Genesic, but I'm the first one to admit that I have the Mac Gokin GGGG and there's probably a heavy bias

    That is glorious! And thanks for sharing the pics and info. I'm kinda glad it's not out because I'd have to pay whatever the asking price is.

    So I took apart my X-boosts charge shot so I could add an LED to it, it worked very well! But now I have different problem, which color should I use?

    You guys decide for me!

    White LED

    Pink LED

    [​IMG]

    I realize they are very similar, (especially to the camera) but I think you can tell that the base color of the LED bleeds through on both, white being more brilliant and sparkling, and pink being more saturated and vibrant

    I just can't decide, thanks for your help!

    I would go for the white LED. Gives a nice gradient effect.

    Sponge - They both look the same color-wise from those pics, but the white looks brighter so I say go with that.

    My Sen-ti-nel Re:Edit RedxGold and Black Muteking are officially en route. Extremely excited.

    Bought their metallic version Getter years ago fron HLJ. Love it but yea it terrifying transforming it cause it super fragile and I have to tighten the screws every time. Do have a slight regret not picking up their GaoFaiGar, Goldion and Gurren Lagaan but then Kind of glad I didnt because I figured I could get a lot more stuff with the money for them.

    White it is!

    Looking forward to the red and gold review! :thumb 

    Oh man their Gurren Lagaan is on my "if only/one day" list, but yeah, price has always been the mitigating factor for me as well, I just wish there were more video reviews of their stuff, so I could at least live vicariously through others :lol

    Looks great brother Sponge!

    Looks like RedxGold and Black Muteking come tomorrow and just paid the Mazinkaiser invoice now. Looks like another year where Sen-ti-nel gets the MVP.

    It's MFs like you and brother sponge that make this thread great.

    I miss SoulinkChu, though.

    Can't wait for pics and testimonials from the both of ya! :D 

    Yep yep!!!!


    Re: this thread, I'ma be blunt, I love this sub forum because it's generally way more laid back than the more specific forums (eg macross world, robot Japan, ect...) and Facebook groups, which seem to nitpick the F*** out of everything, especially if it's an updated design, ya know like how TFW is with transformers 90% of the time :lol 

    Not to say we don't nitpick or have complaints here, but generally if there's a complaint that doesn't open a discussion, it's left at that, none of the thread bombing from a few outspoken people who get livid at the thought of a toy not living up to their insane "vision" of how it should be, and how it should also cost only 50$ That I see in so many places

    IDK maybe I'm the crazy for accepting shit as it is, not "demanding" more for less, and instead just enjoying what we get, but for me, life's to short to constantly be bent out of shape over toys, and after all, toys were made to be enjoyed :)

    Super Robots are my "first love" and my highest priority when it comes to collecting, so I really do enjoy stuff like Robot Japan because it's nice to have that sort of deeper discussion, but this particular thread has some good members on it and I definitely dig it.

    Completely understandable, I still lurk at a bunch of different forums including robot Japan, and only really consistently post in like 4 threads here at TFW, cause old habits n all that, been a lurker most of my online life, and this whole interacting thing is only a couple of years old for me lol

    But who knows? Stuff is always changing, and engaging with more forums is certainly not something outside the realm of possibility for me, just right now I'm content with the chill atmosphere we usually have going on round here :)

    You don't owe anyone any kind of explanation for what you do online and where. Everyone's experiences are their own and we all have our own ways of enjoying it.

    -----------

    Sentinel's take on Mazinkaiser really makes me want to see what they can do with Mazinger.
