Oh wow! That’s killer!
I painted the cockpit and I’m very happy with my decision. It really felt like something was missing before I did this! Word of warning: whatever plastic this is doesn’t hold paint as well as some other plastics, although it worked well with the gold, the dark silver I tried at first did not adhere well.
Nice; if I get this guy, I want to paint the canopy metallic red. I don't care if it's movie-accurate; the solid grey cockpit doesn't do it for me.
Might need a thin layer of primer first to hold the dark silver?
More pictures please!
How much bigger is Dragoon compared to FT Quietus!?
I think that's a good idea, that's what I'm going to use when I get mine. Then a gloss layer, possibly a flat finish as a last step, depending on how it photos!
Would probably have been a good idea. I would have had to do that if the gold hadn't decided to stay for some reason. I am happy with the look right now so I'm gonna leave it, although I did transform him back to bot mode last night (it's way more fun to go to bot mode, less fun to go to jet mode) and remembered how the canopy stores under the head, which might lead to paint scratching, so a clear coat is probably in order at some point.
Their shipping costs the same as some figures (to me at least)
(Around 60 usd)
This is the week of Megatrons! Just got in ivimee’s chibi megatron!
AHHH ITS FINALLY IN STOCK
better get this mf by saturday cuz i paid for 2 day shippin, i think
(ordered on the extremely late tfsource btw)
Mine got delivered Friday! But to my former address not sure what happened cuz I had that updated with ShowZ
Ah I hate it when that happens! I’ve had a package or two go to my parent’s house in the past. Luckily they only live a 45min subway ride away but it’s still annoying.
Now it's getting returned to sender...tried calling the post office but they said they can't use the tracking numbers provided
UPDATE: Apparently the post office can't use the shipping info provided by ShowZ and all I can do now is wait for it to be sent back to the sender and request the resend it to me. Nice.
Shit dude I'm sorry. Usually calling them (and being on hold for an hour) solves most problems.
They claim the tracking info useless in their system. One guy implied I was making up the number I had cuz he had never heard anything like it before haha. Ah well, maybe ShowZ will be able to do something about it. As long as I get it eventually I'll be happy
Try emailing Showz. They sometimes get tracking from usps or fedex that they don’t give to you unless you ask.
I've sent them several messages haha. If they respond soon, maybe there is still hope! Thanks for the input
