I've been putting this off to long, its was supposed to be posted weeks ago!! but instead i blogged about cards :P So a few weeks ago i bought this awesome die-cast Shogun Vehicles UFO Grendizer
. But it was not totally complete as far as i could find it was supposed to come with 4 projectiles 2 disks and 2 spear thingies.. but my toy misses the disks and the spear didnt fit in the left wing where the disks are supposed to go. So i tried to customize it and it worked!
Well my old trusty screwdriver sucked didn't help at all
My pocket knife however did help right away
These are the things i did keep, which is 2 springs for the shooting mechanism, and the obvious parts that make it look good
While there weren't that many obstacles in there, the main thing that was in the way was a pin like thing or something, bottom line is that i remove it and saved the 3 parts taped together in the box.
Having removed those parts made a bit of space open in the left wing
And now it does fit to an extent.
Sure it doesn't fire but i did it so it would look good
And that's it for Grendizer, it looks way better this way and i can always put those parts back when i need to
And now for the Die-Cast i did not add to the last blog
This is as far as i could find a Chinese Transformer that was made as a result of the popularity of several pre-Transformer series and toy lines in Japan most notable Diaclone. Its nice and heavy and it has 4 forms, 2 of which are worthless to me because its missing the parts. I like the gun mode the most but it still looks 2nd rate. give me the G1 Megatron any day!.
The next thing i ordered from the guy was a Die-cast Varidreen (or Vartilift for the European release name) which is the second main vehicle from Himitsu Sentai Goranger
the first series of the Sentai franchise. To me this is more valuable then any Megazord or Sentai mecha and i do really hope he can find it for me.
