    Re: Plamobot's build thread (with occasional WIP)

    Yeah, it was a really fun build. Big solid model, and the rubber pads included for the feet make posing it a bit easier. The only quirks are that the LED in the eyes seems a bit weak, and there's a nub on the back edge of the sword blade. Bah!

    Not to worried about the sword. I have a Metal one to replace the plastic one from the kit. But thanks, nice to know they kept the rubber feet. The Strike has those as well.

    Re: Plamobot's build thread (with occasional WIP)

    I wonder how the metal one stacks up. The plastic one included in the kit has a surprising amount of detail, including the "waves" on the blade from the (in-universe) metal being forged. I know there's a real-world term for that, as applies to Japanese swords, but I don't know what it is.

    Re: Plamobot's build thread (with occasional WIP)

    I will get you a side by side picture. It looks great and it has the wave things of which the name I can't remember right now. (smacks self in the head for forgetting). The only problem I have with it is the quality control of the people who put it together. You can see the glue seeping out at the hilt, nothing I can't fix, and will. But other than that it is a nice looking sword.
    The big difference is I can sharpen it and make it functional.

    The plastic one's point is sharp enough!

    Is the metal one the same one I've seen on eBay for around 20 bucks?

    Re: Plamobot's build thread (with occasional WIP)

    Yup, it is that one. I want to find another scabbard so I can have a double sword, but I might have to make it myself can't find one to save my life.

    I think you're talking about the hamon (Pronounce hamone)

    Great job on the kits!
