I have returned from the ports of the mysterious orient with my holds stuffed to the bulwarks with spices and silks!

My big sighting on this trip East was the line of Ultraman ships in 1/72 (a bit small for 40k unless you convert to hide scale-specific details) filled with classic retro designs that won't be too familiar to most players.

Besides the aforementioned Ultraman MAT Gyro

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CY42BVQ/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_9?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A17WMGLSHNJ2LC



There are a few more out:

Ultraman Jet VTOL 1/72

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002J8T372/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_6



A big brother

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BKRQWK8/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_8



Ultraman MAT Arrow

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07BKRQWK8/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_8



And smaller "Mecha Collection" version, probably 3"-4" maybe Titanicus terrain?

https://www.amazon.com/Bandai-Hobby-Ultraman-Mecha-Collection/dp/B017JT76TC/ref=pd_sbs_21_1

There's actually a good sized Mecha Collection

https://www.amazon.com/s?url=search-alias%3Dtoys-and-games&field-keywords=ultraman+mecha+collection

If anyone is looking for smaller vehicles including planes, subs and drills.

And finally there's the Star Wars Mecha Collection, I picked up two Star Destroyers to use for BFG after some conversion.

Joy Toy has put out a bunch of new preorders for October through December. Aside from a slew of new infantry squads and individuals (all quite cool looking, too), they are releasing a new mech, the Zeus Machine Armor



as well as three fully articulated and wearable exo-skeletons that come with operators.





I suspect the exo-skeletons may be of interest to some on here for conversions.

1/4000 SDF-1 Macross Fortress Warship (The Movie Ver.)



A converters paradise at a very reasonable price. Could be used to make any number of larger type aircraft for 40k, especially stand-ins for Tau flyers.

Lil Draken + Missile Pod



They're approximately 13.5cm long, no idea on the width. But definitely useful for people who want to use them for conversions. You also get two per pack, so they're pretty cheap to get a hold of. The missile pods (seen below) can be opened up to find a group of missiles, which could also be used for conversions.

Ahhh thank you for this! And even if you don't like the constructed style, for the individual panels alone you have an immense amount of workable material for making your own conversions.

So long as we're poking around HLJ...

1/72 Nazi walker thing



https://hlj.com/product/RCT47002/Sci

And artillery



https://hlj.com/product/RCT47006/Sci

And a combo

1/72 is small but you might get something the size of a rhino or Chimera...

The whole 'Fist of War' a nazis 1947 sort of thing is here:

https://hlj.com/product/max01038/Sci

1/72 Mecha hauler. Too small for 40k but maybe with a new cockpit it can fit into the Adepus Mech or as an IG tank hauler.

I need one now for my space fleets

Some recent 1/60 Arm Slaves from the Full Metal Panic! series have been produced by Bandai. Really great looking mecha, close in size to a Riptide battlesuit.

They have a more subdued aesthetic than most Gundam mecha, spare the Laevatein. I could see some sweet tau conversions or even Knights, who knows.

The Savages aren't from Bandai. They're Good Smile Company. They're also plastic models, don't need painting or gluing, and are 1/60 scale though. They also have a green variant coming out in January.

Unfortunately, after looking at this picture of that Death Star model in hand (intended as a scale shot, I'm sure), all I can see now is a Death Star painted like a Pokeball.
