I dunno if people have seen these images yet, in magazines or something? But HLJ posted some A Toll images - shows the photo etch parts for the neck, and the decal sheet.

I would get the kit, if I had the money to waste. It just looks tremendously... fun. Tedious to build also, perhaps... but it still looks like quite the diverting project. True that much detail would be covered in the end, but you'd still know it's there, and that's part of the fun of these type of ...

Re: Need More Pictures of The Schpeltor

You got an original of the Silicon Tribe Schpeltor w/ Buster for $78??? Are you the luckiest person on earth or what? Well, I looked through all the stuff I have on my HD... I've saved a LOT of pics from a LOT of sites. But it seems like no one else has built one of these. I built one many years ago...

Yup, I got one of those Wave Bang Dolls from HLJ a couple months ago. Although Sheizzel doesn't like it much, I have a good deal of fondess for it. :) Definitely solidly sculpted, no slacking on the detail. Lots of metal parts for important things like the tails. Nice large shield, unlike WSC. It ce...

must be scratch build then. Prior to FAC 2004, I don't recall Volks, WSC, Kaiyodo, or those smaller shops made a Groon. That is correct. It is scratchbuilt. When that Boowray color changes to blue, I totally forgot about the fact that it is a boowray. This is the very first time I've seen a blue bo...

The Clouds Schatze/Speed Mirage name issue always confuses me, but isn't that flying pose kit (from WSC) usually referred to as 'Speed Mirage'? And the standing pose WSC kit is called Clouds Schatze. I may be confused though... As for the Maglow... it doesn't look like the Volks (which you can see l...

If you check the scans, you'll see a small inset photo which shows which optional parts come with the kit. Seems to include an extra shoulder veil, and 2 of the old syle swords, and what seems to be an extra optional set of shoulder armor. No sign of the original A Toll BS veil though, so it looks l...

This is not the first time we've seen semi-transparent plastic on a FSS plastic kit. 1/144 LED used this plastic. :roll: I am not versed in Semi-transparent plastic. I have seen it in resin. And knowing IP is a cheaper ver. of Resin, I imagine it can be done. But is this the first time that you guys...

Speaking of the A Toll... I really like what he did with it. Great colors, great craftsmanship. It always amazes me that this fellow can do new kits so... speedily... and yet still keep up such a nice level of quality. I imagine the WSC A Toll would look a lot nicer if painted up like this. Yep, the...

Yay!

Looks like the URL for the gallery changed, that's why my old bookmark didn't work.

Isn't the A Toll new as well?

While i see your point, resins, no matter what form they take, are still pretty hard to come by, not to mention you don't get quite the amount you do with even a plastic ffs kit. This might not be the issue for people like me or you, but when your trying to appeal to new fans this is quite importan...

Hmm... I've ordered a ton of kits from Hobbyfan. Both FSS and some figures. I've had good experience with them. Usually get replies to e-mail pretty fast, and I've never been ignored. Shipping times are fast, but that's because I live about 60 miles away from them. Quality of kits is generally good,...
