:tflaugh to SSTG's shenanigans. I guess Prime just had to scratch that Itchy trigger finger.

 

 

 

 

and Goki, that rules, even if PM Prime will probably die due to limited articulation :P

Mirrors- Your photoshop skills are enviable. Actually, I'm a graphic design student, so I kind of need them. Do you mind if I use a brain siphoning device to forceably extract them? I'm sure your brain won't mind much.

 

On a similar note, in an earlier thread I posted this:

Since that's no longer original, here are some other random pics I took of my friends Soul of Chogokin figures while I was in Japan (by the way, these figures are INCREDIBLE-ly expensive).

Zambot-3 (gigantic robot designed by the guy who also made the original Gundam, Tomino Yoshiyuki, alias "Kill 'em all Tomino")

Combattler V, made of five flying robots which resemble five flying parts of a giant robot. He also has a powerful electric buzzsaw yoyo attack, the activation of which requires a stout screaming of "CHOUDENJI YO-YOOOOOO!"

Most people should recognize this guy. If you haven't, suffice it to say that he caused just about everyone who watches Japanese Animation to scratch their head or get severely irritated at least once.

But Combattler V is supposed to separate into five vehicles, not robots... although the vehicles would resemble components of the Combattler V robot.

 

Here's a photo of me singing the Combattler V theme song at Karaoke!

I have Combattler V in black and I've always wanted the red and blue one. Just great! I love Zambot though. Want that guy in my collection badly. sigh... Like all the rest of that Soul of Chogokin series.

Buddykiller: Err... that's not a fansub (why would fansubbers sub anime in Japanese text??) -- that's the actual proper Karaoke clip for the song. That photo was taken in a Karaoke box "restaurant" (they're legally classified as restaurants). Fansubbers do do karaoke clips, but they always have Romanised Japanese so that people who can't read Japanese script can still sing along. Some fansubbers will include both Romanised and proper Japanese script, but I don't see too many that do Japanese script only. (-_-)

well if you can speak japanese i guess theres really no need for fansubbing. i was just wondering because it looked EXCEPTIONALY well. i thought there where words on top of the script and well it'd be hard to see the translation at the top of the screen with the screen being that bright and the camera being that far away. it's actually really common for your higher quality fansubbing groups to actually do all 3. i noticed the other day how nice it really is when i was watching flame of recca (which i just found out was on dvd). i found myself missing it quite a bit.

 

this reminds me, i need to catch up with Sorezore no Tsubasa

Yes, vehicles, sorry. One of them is a thinly disguised flying pair of legs.

Funny you should say. I spent some time in Japan this summer, and my friend's mom took me to a karaoke place (it was pretty awkward), where I surprised her big time by karaoke-ing that very same song, and there was no romanji either. I have it on a CD, and since I had listened to it and (loudly) sang along enough times I basically know all the words (even though I don't really know what I'm saying). I was able to do this with a couple other songs too (especially the Getter Robo opening).

 

And here's my proof.

    • MIP Monday goes micro with a look at the 2023 5 Surprise Toy Mini Brands Series 3 Transformers Cyberverse Sky Turbine Optimus Prime. I thought this would be just the cardboard box reproduced at a microscale, but there are actually two tiny plastic figurines inside the box. The 5 Surprise people went all out with this officially licensed copy of the entire package that you can see alone and compared with the original full size edition below. - Read the Full News Story
    • I completely expected Metalhawk to be a retool of Cyclonus. What I didn't expect was that it was going to be G1 Metalhawk and not IDW Metalhawk. IDW Metalhawk's jet mode looks an awful lot like G1 Cyclonus' jet mode. Other than changing things like the chest and whatnot, they really only needed to change how the arms turned into the wings. I imagined that they'd have the arms stick out straight from the jet body and then the forearms would turn so that the wings on them would be used for the jet's wings. The wings would be bigger than the ones on Cyclonus' forearms of course. I never thought that Armada Starscream would be used. While the jet mode bears a passing resemblance to G1 Metalhawk's jet mode, nothing else lines up for robot mode. The sides of the chest kind of look like IDW Metalhawk though but only vaguely. At that point, so does T30 deluxe IDW stealth bomber Megatron's chest. I didn't think Metalhawk would be made from Jhiaxus either. Nothing really lined up between the two at all. It's something people were thinking though. They might as well have used Siege or Earthrise Starscream for him at either of those points. Hell, T30 Brainstorm would've been better to use as a base than either Armada Starscream or Jhiaxus. Shame we never did get a reuse of that mold. I have all four versions of TR Brainstorm but I still can't bring myself to get rid of T30 Brainstorm. It's just a really good mold. I always laugh at the actual length of the Headmaster's arms. If they were straightened out instead of molded with a 90 degree bend in them then the arms would go down lower than the knees. Those are some really long arms but you don't notice them since they're just molded and painted on the insides of the head flaps. I'm happy that we're finally getting a new Twincast and all but I really wish he had a vehicle mode. I stopped caring about them having object modes since I picked up Classics Megatron and was reminded by how dumb it was the whole time. You don't realize it as a kid in the 80's though as that shit was cool. But then I'm holding a gun in my hand and well, that's it. You can't woosh it. You can't swoosh it. You can roll it along. Just nothing. It stays in YOUR hand and YOU pull the trigger. Wow. It's even worse when it's a boombox, camera or tape recorder. I'd much rather have my submarine mode Sixshot, leader class space cruiser Shockwave with all the add-ons or space barge Soundwave any day. At least Perceptor has his tank mode thing. Soundwave and Blaster should always have something similar from now on. Maybe make them have a secret combinable alt mode between Reflector and Soundwave and Perceptor and Blaster. I kind of made one with Percy and Blaster but it's missing something. Like that one upgrade kit on Ebay for Perceptor but it costs like $50 and I don't have time for that. I'm sure I can come up with something for Reflector and Walmart Soundwave but I have three of each color (five total colors) of Siege Reflector so I come up with combos for them instead of combos of them with Soundwave.
