A Zoid and Stuff

HMM-009 Saber Tiger Schwalz ver.

Best HMM ever! More to come… someday…

Yeah, so I pull this guy out of storage for display in my new place and… dang. Armor flew off just from looking at it, the rubber ammo belt broke clean off, all the joints were suddenly super loose, a good heapin’ helpin’ of ETC… Screw this kit, screw it hard.

    Just ordered a HMM-006 Off eBay, my first Zoid purchase in years. Hopefully it goes as smoothly as this one went.

    @Cody: This is one of the sturdiest AND most flexible HMM kits, so regular Saber shouldn’t give you any trouble.

    I’m hoping they make a Team Tigers (yellow!) one someday.

    Team Tigers, I don’t recall. You sure you don’t mean the Fuzzy Pandas?

    I bought a re-issue of this guy, and was pretty disappointed after building Fuhrer. I know it’s an old kit, but the pegs for the weapons and legs are too small, but I remedied that by wrapping them with some tape. And I needed two extra hands just to get the hydraulic pieces near the core to stay in! DX I’m not finished yet, so I’m hoping that’s all I’ll find. The kit is looking great, though. :)

    @Zoidstar: I don’t know if it’s me being hamhands, or if these things don’t age well or what, but I take back every nice thing I ever said about this kit. It does look really nice, though.

    Anyway, Now Berserk Fuhrer is my BEST HMM EVER.

    Agreed! Fuhrer is THE BEST HMM EVER!!!!

    A bit off-topic, but have you started painting it pink yet??? :P

    @Zoidstar: I need to highlight some tight-fitting pieces that would make painting after doing a test-build (or just a build) really hard. Like the heels. Anyway, I can’t do that until I get access to a scanner again, and I have no idea when or if I’ll ever have a place to do painting. If I ever find myself with more money than sense, I might just “commission” that. :)

    (I also need a single blade assembly from an hmm blade liger. That’s gonna be tough to wrangle)
