Hi, Everyone!

Apparently, the event showings of The Wrath of Khan director's cut did well enough that an encore date has been set for tomorrow (9/21/17). Go here to find a theater near you:

https://www.fathomevents.com/events/star-trek-ii?date=2017-09-21

So if you missed watching the movie last week on the 10th and 13th, you still have another chance to check it out!

Hi, Everyone!

I hope those who were able to make it to the September 10th showings for Wrath of Khan had a good time.

Before the event showing begins, the audience gets treated several times to on-screen Star Trek trivia. Then comes a barrage of Fathom Events trailers. A Star Trek: Discovery trailer gets shown several times as well. After that, a sit-down interview with William Shatner by Star Trek super-fan and walking-Hollywood-trivia-Wikipedia Scott Mantz which ended up being kind of nice to watch...even though Shatner got some facts wrong.

As for the movie itself...it is SOOO nice to see everything on the big screen again! The picture is as good as it has ever been and the sound is crisp. To see all the characters, the Reliant, and, of course, the Enterprise up there once more reminds you that it's the way they were meant to be experienced.

There are September 13th showings coming up, so if you didn't catch any on the 10th, you still have a chance. Highly recommended!

Hi, Everyone!

Bandai has updated their Star Wars Plastic Model Series Photo Contest 2017 posting on their website to include some general rules.

Here are the rules:

- One picture attached per post. If each post has more than one attached picture, the second and on will not go into consideration.
- Please provide the name(s) of the model kit(s) used in each picture post.
- As a general rule, Bandai asks that pictures only include models from their Star Wars plastic model series. Any pictures that include products other than Bandai's Star Wars plastic models may not go into consideration.
- If you are a minor, please obtain consent from parents before posting pictures.

Once again, Bandai will be running their Star Wars Plastic Model Series Photo Contest 2017 starting 9/1/17 to 11/19/17.

They are asking participants to upload their photos onto Twitter, Facebook, and/or Instagram using the hashtag #STARWARS_MODEL_BANDAI. You can post as many pictures as you want, but please follow the rules above.

Winners will be chosen in December 2017.

Please take note that this is a photo contest and not just a model building contest, so your posted pictures should be as creative and look as good as you can make them in order to stand out. Use of photo editing software and filters are allowed.

Get your Bandai Star Wars models looking great, shoot some beautiful pictures, post what you have on those social media platforms, and good luck!

Hi, Everyone!

This is for any and all Captain Harlock fans out there...

Back in 2012, Hasegawa - under their Creator Works line - released a 1:1500 Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia model kit (kit number CW05) as the ship appeared in the 1979 first Galaxy Express 999 anime film.

Then in 2014, Hasegawa released a 1:1500 Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia Second Ship (Phantom Death Shadow conversion) kit (kit number CW08) as she appeared in the 1978 Space Pirate Captain Harlock anime TV series. This model came with two tiny Cosmo Wing fighter crafts.

Now scheduled for November 2017, Hasegawa will release a 1:1500 Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia Second Ship model kit (kit number 64756) based on how she appeared in the 1977 Space Pirate Captain Harlock manga (Japanese comic) series. This latest version will come with two little Space Wolf SW-190 fighter craft.

For now, Hasegawa hasn't released much to give modelers a peek at what's coming beyond the illustration that will be used for the box and two parts images. Check out the attached album.

Stay tuned for more on this one...

Hi, Everyone!

Aoshima will be re-releasing five classic Genesis Climber MOSPEADA model kits (originally released by Imai back in the 1980s and 1990s and more recently by Aoshima in 2007) in the coming months...

1:72 Legioss AFC-01H Eta (kit number 4905083-054451)
1:72 Legioss AFC-01Z Zeta (kit number 4905083-054437)
1:72 Legioss AFC-01I Iota (kit number 4905083-054444)
Each model features:
- All three modes (Armo-Soldier, Armo-Diver, and Armo-Fighter) are included as separate kits
- Includes decals for custom markings
- Each of the three kits are non-transformable
- October 2017 release
- 2500 Yen each (currently about $23.00 U.S.D.)

1:12 VR-052F/T - Stig Bernard and Ray type (kit number 4905083-054468)
1:12 VR-041H Blowsperior - Yellow Belmont type (kit number 4905083-054475)
Each model features:
- Parts-transformable
- November 2017 release
- 3200 Yen each (currently about $30.00 U.S.D.)

Western audiences will know the Genesis Climber MOSPEADA anime as Robotech: The New Generation, the third saga of the Robotech compilation series.

The motorcycle-to-powered-exoskeleton 1:12 kits, in particular, are pretty cool. I have the Monogram Go Bots Cy-Kill kit (kit number 6202) in my stash which is a re-package of the original Imai 1:12 Blowsperior model (kit number B-1401).

Currently, you can pre-order these kits now from online import retailers such as Hobby Link Japan and Hobby Search.

Stay tuned...

:)
