No; I used my time to point out that quality is subjective.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

Try and this special are objectively bad, you are entitled to your opinion, though. Not my fault they only produce bad products in these past few years "You keep using that word; I do not think it means what you think it means." Let's begin with defining objectivity: "Generally, objectivity means t...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

So, I watched Island Wars this morning (my time) and here are some of my thoughts: I'm glad they got the harem antics out of the way right at the beginning; I don't mind them overall, but it's not one of my favorite aspects of TRY. That said, I loved that we got expressive characters again; Build Fi...

Need help with a 1/144 Epyon project idea

So...I want a more articulated Epyon kit to pose with my HGAC Zero, and since Bandai is letting me down in that regard, I think the thing to do is say, "Forget it! I'll make my own HGAC Epyon! With blackjack, and hookers! In fact, forget the blackjack and hookers!" *Clears throat* The issue is, I do...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

I have to admit, that Hi-Nu Vrabe is Amazing; Exia-ceeding all of my expectations in its design. I think that is another kit I might have to pick up.

Curse you, HGBF Line! How dare you make it so easy to purchase your kits!

Re: The Official Kamen Rider Thread

Start your Engine! And Ride the Kamen Driver! ...Wait. So, it's been about the same amount of time between the start of Drive and now that I have Gaim last year, and I think I have a fairly reasoned early opinion on it. In short: I like it, but it feels much more like Double or OOO as compared to Ga...

Re: The Official Kamen Rider Thread

So...Gaim. Gaim, Gaim, Gaim...I am torn a little. On one hand, it's good; really good. The end fight of Gaim 46 is one of the best fight scenes in Rider I've seen since the Rider War, and that's just one off the top of my head. The characters, though; that's the other hand. I love a lot of the devel...

Re: The Official Kamen Rider Thread

So, without spoiling anything about this week's Gaim...does anyone else remember when the show was about a big dork who tried to use his superpowers to make deliveries and rode his motorcycle off a cliff, complete with Looney Tunes effects? Anyone?

So, what would make a fantastic Real Grade?

So, a short story before I get into the "meat" of the topic; when I got the HGAC Wing Zero, I picked up the 1/144 Wing Zero Custom (or EW Ver; whatever it's called now >_>) as a bit of a companion piece. While I do think it's a good kit for the time, I wondered how a HG Wing Zero Custom would be. Ho...

Re: Few QuesGBC Universe Booster

The Booster itself has a rotatable peg; one end, the more cylindrical one is for the HG (Build) Strike torso. The other is a more of a rectangular peg/tab combo; that may work for the RG. As for the leg parts, they are designed specifically for the HG, and wouldn't work. Now, as for the second part;...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk IV

You know, if it's going to be a while before there's any prospect of a new anime, this might be a good time for us to create a bunch of fan-made Gunpla Battle customs. :-) -- Mark I would, but the cost is rather prohibitive at present. As such, my Nu Wing Zero must remain on paper for now. I might ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk IV

So, this is something I debated starting an entire thread on, but since it's closely related to Build Fighters, I'm going to ask this here: Has anyone designed and/or made a custom Gunpla with the idea of it being useful in Gunpla Battle? ...Because I did. >_> I actually came up with two ideas, one ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk IV

The only Gundam kit that is no longer part of my collection is an old 1/144 NG Ashatron from X; it was destroyed as a causality of an argument between one of my siblings and myself.

Re: Power Rangers Skips a Season

I haven't seen Go-Busters but have seen most of Kyoryuger, but I wonder...might the former end up being something akin to an Alien Rangers situation? That would be nice, if only to get the Busters in the show, if nothing else. Personally, I think we're more likely to see the Morphin Brace reworked ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk IV

840km/hr * 1000m/km / 60min/hr = 1.4 * 10^4 m/min. Then divide that by 60s/min -> 240m/s <_< I would forget the simple math. *Redoes the calculations* I got a velocity of 233.3 m/s, which is fairly close to what you had; with a final velocity of 245.96 m/s on the second run-through. However, when I...

Re: Power Rangers Skips a Season

That fact also worries me; as a general trend I think several of us have noticed. As for my opinion on the news of a season skip; I can see why the decision was made to skip Go-Busters, since Kyoryuger has a heavy focus on action in the suit footage and, at least as far as I know, has seem to have o...
