As for super glue - what kind do I use, and how do I use/apply it? The super strong version?

I guess you could use any super glue really, as long as it doesn't melt/mold the plastic peices together. I'd apply a thin layer on the ball, let it dry and see if it's tight enough then, don't put it in the socket while it's not dry, to be safe.

It'd be cool if they have the 6-eyes gimmick for the 1/144 Harute

Probably not, even if it does, it'll be part-swapping with a new head. 1/144's too small to do this...

Anyway, I LOVE the Harute. Can't wait to get my grubby paws on it...

Personally, I'd recommenda againts using superglue. I've personally had bad experience with them as far as ball joints are concerned. They can stick, problem is that that once you forcibly move them around the cohesion breaks and they become even looser than before. Thats just my experience however. Maybe my superglue just sucks, I'm sure different ones would work differently in practice but its just the experience I have with mine.

My prefered solution is painting the surface of the joint and then wait for it to dry. It makes it a stronger joint in general. I've only used black however, I remember reading that advice once on this thread and it has work wonders for me personally. Painting the inside part of where the joint connects to helps too.

Just dont connect when its still wet, otherwise its impossible to remove. Wait till it dried completely. Just painting with a brush is enough.

Why did they wait this long to make an awesome entry into the Kyrios line?

Kyrios = awesome, Arios = meh (even with GNHW/M), Harute = fantastical.

I'm guessing the cockpit, chest, eyes, arm circles, and maybe even the yellow pieces on the head (hopefully not)


On a side note, if i were to spray the inner frame of the MG Red Frame Astray with topcoat, if some of the topcoat were to go into the joints, would it cause the joints to seize up and not move anymore once its dried?

Wow. Damn, I can't choose between Harute and Zabanya So does Harute definitely stand on its own then? Cause its butt still looks huge but there doesn't seem to be that base any more.

Though, it might be standing because of the support from the two large guns.

The yellow "v-fins" on the head would definitely be molded in color, since they're large visible items afterall.

From previous pics the large grey sliver on the middle of the rifles (on the "blade" ) are definitely stickers, and they'll be using a sticking for the flight module "cockpit" (although unlike the Kyrios and Arios the part is made of glass now, so the sticker goes underneath).
