    Here goes. DropMeFiles – free one-click file sharing service As to the wiring, the wires just goes through the gun turret window and that's it. The shafts I use to mount the Falcon are not hollow, so the wires are attached to the back side of the shafts so that they are hidden when seen from...

    Bandai release schedule

    I get the idea, but I would like to disagree. Bandai not only challenges your modelling skills, but also your standard of pursuit. Bandai forces you to improve and expand your modeling skills by invalidating old modelling skills like "assembling ill-fitted parts," if that is, you have the will...

    Bandai 1/72 PG Millennium Falcon (also the Revell Germany rebox)

    Re: Bandai 1/72 Millennium Falcon Not just the hull, but all those greeblies in the pits, at the minimum, although, the main problem isn't there, but in whether or not Bandai would think they could recoup the cost of making all the tools (especially the costly dies) for an ESB version. My very...

    Bandai 1/72 PG Millennium Falcon (also the Revell Germany rebox)

    Re: Bandai 1/72 Millennium Falcon Having the "capability" to physically produce a model is one thing, whether or not such model is feasible as a commercial kit is totally another. Putting aside the enormous amount of work it would take to make the parts for the ESB mod of the 5 foot miniature...

    2001 Discovery from Moebius

    Close-ups of the sphere, of the latest prototype. Didn't look too thick or deep at all. https://twitter.com/Q0vClE9db3MO80Q/status/1023395117997031424

    Bandai release schedule

    I am not sure if the Falcon displayed next to it was intended to show the boxed set. At least, there were no captions indicating that. It was about 30x30cm. It was pretty detailed inside the hangar, but it didn't look like a conceptual product in any way. Just a display stage for the Blockade...

    2001 Discovery from Moebius

    Updates on Kaiyodo's Discovery 1, that I saw on display at Wonder Festival today, including the estimated price and time frame. I am not sure if my photos are doing justice to this model, but what is making the looks of this thing so special is that they are using hand-refined 3D printed...

    Bandai release schedule

    I went to the Wonder Festival today, where the Blockade Runner was on display. I shall share some photos. Here is the B-Wing, and there was also a Darth Vader with his helmet off. Another item that was on display that caught my interest was Kaiyodo's Discovery 1. This is completely...

    Bandai release schedule

    I fully agree, but it is also true that it is in our nature that we sometimes find difficulty in embracing new tools that enable newcomers to easily surpass what we were only able to achieve through toil and suffering. Such tool poses a threat to an established sense of superiority and...

    Bandai release schedule

    Hardcore fans tend to forget (or take lightly) that Starwars is not a cult movie but a global blockbuster. The films are made possible upon an immense mass of casual cinema goers. Likewise, Bandai is not a company sustained by those hardcore people, but by the casual mass. And it is those...

    Bandai 1/72 PG Millennium Falcon (also the Revell Germany rebox)

    Re: Bandai 1/72 Millennium Falcon There might be a slight misunderstanding. Bandai makes it clear in the box as well as their website that the standard version contains "stickers." Deceiving people into buying the standard version by making them imagine that the kit contains decals and...

    Bandai 1/72 PG Millennium Falcon (also the Revell Germany rebox)

    Re: Bandai 1/72 Millennium Falcon I wrote on that before. From a marketing perspective, the standard version is not illogical in any way. On the contrary, it is a pure tactical marketing device than a 'product' so to say...
