Kenner's AT-AT from the 90's Power of the Force line. Actually got myself a MISB sample - which of course it didn't stay for very long :P What surprises me the most is the 20 year old eveready batteries hadn't leaked at all. They were woefully low tho so they went right in the bin.

Not necessarily my most recent purchase, but maybe some members here will be interested in my 16-bit era retrogaming setup:

  • New Style Super NES (modded to restore S-Video and RGB output, plus an LED power indicator)
  • Sega Genesis Model 3 (may switch to one of the good hardware revisions of the Model 2 in the future)
  • PC Engine
  • sd2snes, Mega Everdrive, and Super SD System 3 loaded with every game available for each of these systems
  • Each system connected via HD Retrovision RGB to component cables to a 3x1 component AV switch
  • Sony Trinitron KV-27FS13 CRT TV
  • Original first-party controllers for each system

I bought that version of High and Low for my mother since I already have two LDs of it. That movie blows my mind.

A scale model of the Soviet Tu-16 plane by Trumpeter.

Yes, I have too many expensive nerd hobbies... but I like that.

That's my problem too. I always want the models I make to do something though, so I wargame, which is a whole 'nother time/money sink...feh..

Just checked out the TU-16, very cool, never saw it before. Their answer to the Lancer?

My last product I purchased was this baby......

Image

One of many slot cars in the 1/32nd scale range that I can run on a "digital" slot car system. If anyone is wondering what makes it "digital", here are a couple of more pics of a track I had built some time back....

Image

Image


And the video that got me hooked on it....




Anyway, this was also the reason I wasn't very active on lddb.com when I initially joined a few years back. I was getting bored of LD and needed something new (as well as old) to get my creative juices flowing again. However, space was a problem where I am and I haven't been able to run it for awhile so naturally I needed something to keep me busy again and that's why I'm back with the LD (as well as home theater) hobby once again. :roll:

That is cool - have fun!!!

The space thing, hope you can get it running again soon.

The shells of the higher end ones are almost model like now.

Got an older (early '80s-ish) set in the loft with spare track & bits & bobs but the last time it was out it got to the stage where it took over the spare room & the track ended up extending out into the hall & that was when my dear wife had enough - fair enough as it was taking over a bit. Great fun when it was out, good old analogue though so no lane changing!!!

Cheers

Very nice. I can't wait to get to ZZ Gundam on my current LD watching project..

These are all pre coloured snap kits these days right? No painting required? Not even gluing right?

I built a Gundam Sentinel kit in the early '90s I got for Christmas and I loved it but I could never get that finish super clean even with sprays and tape. Back then the colouring wasn't as advanced? From memory only 2 or 3 colours were done? You still had to spray and use Gundam markers..

Tip; use a thin-tipped black gundam marker to paint the faceplate vents. Makes a big difference.

Come to think of it, why the heck aren't they sculpted holes? They were on the old MG 2.0 RX-78!

Haven't bought anything yet, but looking into building an arcade stick that will be compatible with SNES, Genesis, and PC Engine.

I had a stick way back when from a company called "Innovation" that was compatible with the SNES, Genesis, PC Engine/Turbo Duo and the Neo Geo.

Image

It was surprisingly light, but made with very nice arcade style buttons and stick. Normally the lack of weight would be a deal breaker for me as you want it to keep still when playing fighting games and such, but the solution to that was suction cups on the bottom! So just slap it down on a TV dinner table and you're good to go!

Only issue I had with it was the compatibility with the Neo Geo. The top row of buttons would correspond to the Neo Geo A, B, C buttons, but the middle button on the bottom row corresponded to D. That was a bit of a problem, unless you were playing those Neo games that didn't use the D button.

Finally managed to score this beauty for non-ridicilous price.

Image

Unlike the AT-AT I mentioned earlier, this one's batteries had not only not leaked but were still somehow at almost full charge after 20 years. Nuts!

they are, it just doesn't show up real well in the photo.

i always paint in those vents, as well as other small details. i had merely waited on the face vents on that new ZZ
until i was basically finished with assembly;

yep... bleeding-edge, 21st-century Plastic Model technology here.

for the most part, one can handle one of these with nothing more than a pair of fine hobby nippers,
though it does pay to have at least a few basic colors of paint, -in traditional bottle and brush, or in paint marker form-
in order to bring at least some of the small but vital details out.

oh, and the 1/100 MASTER GRADEs do usually include a scale pilot figure, -often two, sitting and standing-
and they will indeed require a full, traditional paint job.

funny you mention... BANDAI evidently had a recent classic SENTINEL kit reissue,
and my local HOBBY TOWN USA had them all in stock. for $12.00usd, i decided to give the ZETAPLUS C1 a shot.

we're definitely talking Ye Olde Paint and Glue model kit here.
self-adhesive, Sticker-type decals, -and a handful of polycaps, for some of the joints- are the ONLY sops to the modern age of GUNPLA design being offered here;

finally, more recently, yet another, RX-0 GUNDAM UNICORN this time, along with an R2-D2/C-3PO figure kit set for my mom, the serious "Warsie" in the family;

Right, yeah, makes me respect the stuff you would see in Hobby Japan back then even more. I mean it required a real level of skill to make these things look perfect.

I found the box of the kit I had. It cost around AUD$75 in the 90s and was a serious, high end kit to me, I worshipped it and put a lot of love into it, it looked pretty good but never great and I don't know what happened to it, probably stupidly purged at some point in my quest for some kind of otaku perfection, just like my ARII Macross destroid kits I got from Kmart in Australia in the '80s:

Just got the LOTR:Fellowship Complete recordings in a little box set.

Basically, every scrap of score heard in the movie with a booklet of background and notes. So far, the blu-ray audio disc sounds pretty great, revealing details I've never heard before. I swear that in the Shire, the Hobbits play bongos. . . :o
