Subject: Fantastic RType Model
If you were playing games in the late 80s, you remember RType.  It was one of the best shooters out there, with unique design and solid gameplay throughout.

I spotted this on Yahoo Japan recently:

How awesome is that?  It totally looks like the ship in the game:

The model was released this month at the WonderFestival in Tokyo.  While this is all kinds of intense awesome, I could never justify paying 28,000円 for this:

I bet they sold even fewer of those than Apple did iphones! (or iphone tanks)

Yeah, same here; looks cool, but not 28000yen (and yet to be ruined by my bad painting job) cool.

Edit: But that freebie R9 'Black version' that came with R-Type Tactics still looks cool in front of the TV:

Of course, we're comparing 28000yen to free, so it looks kinda bad after your pic.

That is so awesome!!

Have I asked you yet how the game is?  As a Nectaris fan, would I love it?

Nothing's Nectaris... Well, Nectaris is Nectaris.. But nothing else is. I'm drifting.

Anyhow, I've yet to really get into an in-depth trying of R-Type Tactics. Too busy with Valkyria Chronicles and RPGs (been playing the Dragon Quests in order, and am up to IV). Sorry to not be of much help there :/
