OMG the pilot doesn’t ride in the head!? I thought I lost the chest gun pictured on the box, but apparently it was never included. Phew! I seem to see the “newtype” variant on auctions more often than the “regulartype”, which has silver armor and dull red underbits—like the NJR, but then the gun and cockpit are black.
OJRs are never cheap, but somehow I lucked out and found this one in a lot for a not obscene price. I wanted it for the slightly lighter-than-NJR shade of wings (either for my chromie, or to paint clear blue in attempt at a recreating the ultra-rare Genesis version), but I think I like them better where they belong.
Another YJ bargain. It’s missing the original rockets, and there was shoulder repair done, but otherwise it’s lookin’ good. Since he’s missing the rockets, I thought I’d see how many other weapons could fit. Turns out a lot of weapons fit, and some even look good!
When I was taking pics of all the possible weapon variations, I also took a few that took advantage of Hammer Rock’s “serving tray”. Somehow I forgot to post most of them, though. The tiny food in pics 1–4 came from a co-worker, and the one in pic 5 is from one of my mom’s Re-Ment sets.
