Thanks Pu_rplecow! Saved those pics in my JRP research folder. That piece has a couple minor but nice variations on the original design, and great detailing. Little things like that will help when I get nearer the end and I'm ready to add details to my own!

The bucket? That's so when you make a Char MS you add sugar and water to the paint dust that's piled up in the bucket and make Kool Aid! Goes great with asbestos cupcakes! :D

oO

But seriously, im also curious about that bucket...perhaps if you direct the fumes into the bucket, they wont spread around the entire convention as much?

Im pretty sure the only differences in the model itself is that on the SP version the gold parts of the S-Freedom will be gold plated like the plating on the MG Hyukushiki, and it comes with a stand...could be wrong about the stand thing but 100% on the gold plating thing.

9000Yen saving on the Yamato?!!  That might just be enough for shipping.
[EDIT]:  Pictures @ Hobbysearch.  Looks awesome!

Do you know that Zaku is actually a decepticon all along?  :shock:  :D

So wrong... and yet it still looks better than Star Wars Transformers.

The discount is now listed as "pending".  :(  I e-mailed them to see what is up. Perhaps it was too much to be listed or something.

[EDIT] HLJ now has more nice pics and a good description.

The device that looks like a gun handle is the firing mechanism for the Wavemotion Gun that runs through the center of the ship.

That's the remote control (most likely wireless) for the light, moving turret, and sound of the Yamato.

Cool! I've never seen the show, but have always known the ship designs. Just wondered why it was with the model.

The model looks really awesome.

That's a commemorative hair dryer that comes with the whole thing--as a peace offering to give your spouse after having blown nearly enough money for a PS3 (or twice as much as my truck is worth) on a noisy, articulated, well-lit paperweight.

Oh? It's the remote? That makes more sense. Go with that.

I just noticed that on an image (link below) from the hobby show that the GM (G) Sniper has a lable that says: "No. 100 Countdown" with the Sniper being release #92. I wonder what they have up their sleeves for #100? Probably another RX-78-2! :lol:  :roll:

http://homepage3.nifty.com/horahukin/starthp/subpage13.html


Dude, we all know it's a MG Dendrobium  :razz:

It'd better be something cool, like a zock, jegan, or galbaldy, or maybe something lame like a direct scale-down of The PG RX-78-2, with same exact parts and such, just in 1/100 scale.

Here's something interesting I stumbled across.  I'd need some confirmation from Ako to see if they are who I believe to be "Evolution Hobby" in HK, or just a distributor for them; and even confirmation if they are legit:
http://www.hk-toys.net/

But for those who want to grab a 1/35 scale Zaku II, or those 1/35 scale Zaku II heads, or even the 1/35 scale Ball....

Having built the 1/35 scale Zaku II head, I can say that it was very well engineered and came together very nicely.  Very good casting, with high quality resin.  Thought I'd post this to see if I can get some info.  The website is a bit rudimentary.  But it's a start.  At least a source for 1/35 zeon products... and hopefully we can see some more 1/35 zeon stuff form these guys.
