Since someone with lots of authority in Bandai is being an A-Hole and not moving forward with releasing the SRC MAzinger Weapons Set Ver.2, I decided to make my own set. Here is a picture of the prototypes:
I'm also working on modifications to the Jet Scrander, and also finished a new, more proportionate head for the SRC Great Mazinger.
I still have hopes of Bandai getting of their a$$ and releasing the official set, but until then these will do just fine... ;D

- nice, very nice. where that Jet Pilder comes from? it looks really good, almost official if i do say so. - how did you do that drill missle compartment? - so your modifying the Jet Scrander? - a new head for Great Mazinger, which one do you mean? the one that you show us or is this a new entire head?
crossing fingers you do the Great Booster for GM, he needs it XD
I'm thinking if you wanted a Great Booster for your SRC Great Mazinger if you could find a loose one from the SOC version it would look pretty nice with a few mods. The SRC Mazingers are a bit on the stylized side so a bigger than normal Great Booster would fit in with that design edict.

Thanks bro! I used Alumilite molds and resin, and Tamiya paints. However, as hard as I tried, I could not match the dark blue metallic paint 100% with the SRC's. It would either turn too dark or to light. Oh well, is not like I have a toy factory full of sophisticated toy building machines anyway... ;D
I haven't started with the casting of the Great Mazinger head version 2 yet. But it is on top of my to do list.
Falconhood: hey Magengar. You should have been at the Toy Show today! I got an almost complete 24" Raideen for just $50. it had the AXE fist that I needed, and i have the red piece it was missing, just needed the fist, but I'll keep both mine and this complete one

Falconhood: Maybe I'll paint one black with gold trimming.

magengar: Great score on that Raideen, Falc! Post pics of it in the jumbo section!

Falconhood: IF i can find a big-enough space to take pics, haha.

soul: where can I still buy the Fewture Grendizer 83cm jumbo?
Jun 24, 2014 1:26:32 GMT -5
magengar: That's a tough one, Soul. You might wanna activate a search rover on eBay for it, by Name as you described it... try searching for it as "Fewture Grendizer" (without quotes). Good Luck!

magengar: Falconhood..... you can just snap a rough photo of your Raideen outside in your backyard.

Falconhood: it's too hot to go outside!
Jun 26, 2014 15:37:04 GMT -5
Falconhood: it's cool enough to go outside to take the pic...but it's dark. haha. The Raideen is nothing different, it's lacking some stickers that Mine old one has.

magengar: I love all this heat and humidity, especially at night. The best time to relax outside is just before dawn.

magengar: Also, news-flash: I'm on "vacation" until 5pm July 8th! YAY! My workplace shut down for the week. I didn't ask for any vacation, but I sure do need time off to rest. I haven't vacationed in 3 years!

boma83: does anyone here has action stone super robot series? how tall it is? compare it to figure that has the same size
Jun 30, 2014 3:31:53 GMT -5
Gold: Boma, I think the action stone figures are about 6-7 inches tall?

boma83: ah ok thanks gold.

magengar: Wow, Lejam, you and your friends did a terrific job on that 25th floor space, in that video! Has that space become occupied since the art project, or is the floor still vacant? Wish I could live there!
