    I here ya on that, but forget the price, for me it's more a question of just finding them!! Been checking YAJ, Mandarake and even eBay for a while now and nothing. It's sods law, finally when I can afford something I can't find it anymore!! lol

    Just had my Guyver 2 vinyl 1:1 head come in to go with the Guyver 1 I had. Wish I could afford the Prime1 stuff but had to put the money elsewhere.

    Thanks a lot dude! Your stuff is incredible. I've limited myself to action figures for now, never done busts or statues, but I do like 1:6 scale stuff. Looking forward to the Guyver I & III, they will look good with the 1:6 Gigantics! As far a BFC/BFW, I have more in the attic I want to add, but only have room to add one more to this display. Out of Murakami, Guyot, Aptom, NEO Zx-Tole, Imakarum, Pluqsthal & Evil Aptom, which one should I choose?? I'm also still desperately after a BFW Zerbebuth and Barcus, but could never find them!!

    Page 38 [Until you hear from me, can you write it up for me] [Would it be alright to stay in the room for now] [Why don't we go buy things for you] Auntie looks so happy [She didn't come here to play you know] Uncle said. [Well, having this kind of atmosphere might still be the best] While muttering she turned to Noriko. [It may be a little pushy, the opportunity will be gone if the other party realized this. You cannot simply do this alone.... you have to refrain from acting rashly, and you must absolutely not think of yourself as a sacrifice. Do you understand.] Noriko nodded. [I promise] And so, she swore to her brother in her heart. (I will definitely catch the culprit. - and come back together with you) On the first of May after Golden Week, Noriko transferred to Narusawa High School, and so the second semester has begun.

    It's good to see someone who is willing to start off Gundam with the Original series instead of starting off on Wing Gundam. I'd definitely recommend watching the original series. If it is too daunting for you, you can watch the 3 compilation movies instead. It compresses the whole series into 3 separate movies. As for the alternate universe, you can watch them freely as they are not related to the Universal Century. G Gundam happens to be my favorite Gundam and it's a must watch if you like martial arts. A little bit of info as well, G Gundam was directed by Yasuhiro Imagawa who is famous for directing Giant Robot Series like Giant Robo, Getter Robo Armageddon and Tetsujin28 to name a few, so you will notice some themes that are consistent with Super Robot Series. G Gundam also happens to be the first Gunpla I built. Can't believe it has been 20 years already since. I'm still sore that the English port of G Gundam mutilated the series naming convention. Build Figthers seems to be missing from that list though.

    Just stick with the Universal Century continuity. And definitely start with the original series.

    I wasn't about to pay the $500-$700+ for them. Luckily another member had someone who had made recast of Balcus, Aptom and the tank which looked better than the originals. So I was able to get a set for a lot less $$$.

    I wish there was an elfin recast of Balcus. I would love it, but no chance of me affording him and aptom since i had children. I got the bulk of my collection before they came along, i hope to finish it one day!

    Awesome stuff my man! If Guyver was my only series I'd get more, but with other stuff it becomes impossible to get everything. So what do we think? Guyot or Imakuram? I've narrowed it down to 2!

    Sweet collection dude!! I got the guyver1 bust and enzyme2 model. Can't have the bust until my birthday, lol! All I need now is a guyver0 for my display. And aptom version2. I pre ordered guyver3 bust too. Keep on collecting and keep us posted on wonfest!

    Well, I've finally caught up with the anime and it seems that they are going into the Cal Mira Arc. That much is obvious seeing L'arc in the opening credits. But with the limited number of episodes left, (assuming this is a 26 episode season), I wonder how much they will cram into these last few episodes. Another thing that draws me to the anime is that it explains some of the stuff that I glossed over in the Light Novel.

    One thing why I liked this series better than Overlord is that the Light Novel is finished (I think). While Overlord, we're still stuck on volume 13 waiting for the next volume to come out. I've started binge watching the anime and saw that they cut out a lot of stuff. Not critical stuff, but just some stuff giving more details to specific events. So far I'm up to episode 14 and it's still interesting despite having read beyond the story arc already. While there are subtle similarities between Overlord and Shield Hero, one that distinguishes them from each other is that Momoga has dumb luck on his side, while Naofumi has the will and right sense in making decisions. I just hope that this doesn't turn out to be a harem.

    Not to sound like a prude or anything, but I contributed to almost 90% of the content in the late wiki, even laid out the foundations of it yet you don't see me complain about it being lost. I should be the one most upset about it being gone seeing how much time and energy I put into it. But well, that's life. If you can't get past something so trivial as that, it'll be very hard to do so in the real world. To be fair with Jess, she did try all sorts of things to salvage all the content. However, the damage was too severe for it to have any use. If you're going to ask me to do it again, I am willing, but unfortunately, I no longer have the time or energy for those sort of things. I'm not getting any younger you know.....

    I dunno man. I think there might be a lack of understanding when it comes to how manga is actually created. Takaya may well have had somebody else writing the story, or drawing the names for him, but when such a person isn't credited, it makes it all the more easier to replace them without drawing attention. If the series has been cancelled, his publisher would very likely announce the fact. If he is lacking some kind of creative direction regarding the story narrative, his assigned editor would help him with that. We know he was advertising for an assistant, but such adverts are 99% of the time for assistance in drawing backgrounds, clothes etc. I think, whatever the reason is, it's more than likely a personal one that has really snuffed out his desire to continue the story right now. I'm usually quite despondent when it comes to this thread, but his publishers obviously want to see it resume, and if there's any way they can help him along regarding creative assistance be it art or narrative, you can be sure they are doing what they can. I'm hopeful he'll back, but he obviously has other bigger fish to fry right now I guess....

    One aspect I would love to see in a Guyver video game is customization. Because why the hell not? Choosing colors, how the sonic globes or vents are placed, shape of the eyes, elbow blades, etc.

    This (Platinum are crazy talented) or a a Dynasty Warriors/Musou Guyver title. They have made some excellent bloody/gory anime titles thus far ( Berserk, Fist of the North Star) that it would be pretty brilliant.

    lightsaber yes, jedi.... really depends on the jedi. sith most definitely. the only thing a guyver has in his favor is the regen factor. i believe, that a guyver would be immune to the mind trick powers of force wielders, based on the fact that the guyver 0 was freed from the uranus telepathic control when bonded to his unit. the reflexes of both sith and jedi are heightened depending on your training, and control of the force, while a guyver reflexes are heightened automatically to some extent at at base level. as an example, take sho shooting a bullet out of mid air that was fired, from what... like 6 feet? before it hit Tetsuro's head. sure its not the manga, but it follows the manga closely, and if memory serves, Tayuka (god i hope im spelling his name right) had a lot of say on the series. so depending on the jedi, they may be able to avoid the guyvers abilities. that said, a crafty guyver *cough* G3 *cough* would be able to maneuver an opponent to where he could use a pressure cannon or even sonic buster, at a point in the fight where it would catch a Force wielder off guard. and lets be honest... if droids and clones can kill jedi... a guyver should too.

    Hi everyone so today I got some good/bad news. Illuminati Manga, Happyscans! and Hokuto no Gun have all teamed up to start translating Blue Hole. Needless to say they are doing a dame better job then I ever could and they are putting it up for everyone to read. With this little revelation there's little point in me translating the series anymore myself. I've gone to the trouble of trying to contact Illuminati Manga to see if they plan on translating Blue World in the future also, since that would make any attempts to translate that series redundant also. Here's a ling to the current two chapters they have done, enjoy all. https://mangarock.com/manga/mrs-serie-200021622/chapter/mrs-chapter-200021629 But don't let you think that just because of this I'm throwing in the towel on my translating gig. It's a fun little hobby that given me something to do and I'm gonna keep it up... but not so much with manga. Since I've been translating from French, turns out there's a number of French comics I really want to read that were never translated to English. To top it off they all can be bought on kindle the whole process is going to be 100x easier. Though I will keep the Dinosapian series in mind also. Here's a few of the things I've got my eye on.

    Pretty well, I've been to a couple of beaches around England that and collected a few pieces. I also hunt for more exotic stuff in shops and the webs. If your interested I've posted pictures of them on my blog on this site. Which reminds me I have to post about a few new pieces I've got.
