I wonder what's holding up the release of the IMS A-Toll. We've been looking at the same kit for such a long long time...

The good news from Volks is that they are starting to ship the Terror Mirage. Received a shipment notice email from Volks yesterday saying the kit has been shipped.


singlemedia, I do think the Knight Flags book is worth it at $75, which was the price I paid for years ago. It's got lots of content, but sadly the text are in Japan as you'd expect. The material used for printing has a nice feel to it. It's definitely a nice book to have if you plan on painting some MH kits.

Is that the IMS Neptune?

That V Siren looks fantastic! I think that is the first time I've seen it with a non baby-blue artwork look. Any more pictures?

So apparently there's a third party 1/100 Phantom figure:

Looks interesting.  For the price I might be a guinea pig and see how the quality is on it.

I would recommend you avoid that, unless you enjoy melted detail:

Thanks for the link, I was having a hard time finding detailed photos.

Honestly, that's about what I expected.  For the price and for it being a third party I wasn't expecting amazing detail or anything, just a neat little desk decoration to remind me that I don't have room for a spraybooth to finish any of my FSS kits.

Huh, so is Akira Tani sculpting a Gothicmade? I remember those MH heads were his as well.

New FSS volume shipping next month.

Meanwhile, going on three years and non-theater release of GothicMade.

Nagano is weird.

As expected, ANN screwed up again.  The release date for volume 13 being in June was misinformation.

No one knows when it will come out, hell at this point it may be in the same purgatory as Eva 4.0.
