Ya, it took em long enough to get the really cool and experimental stuff out, ran out of the main armour many many years ago.

Cheers, but they have almost everything nailed down now!! ;)

Very cool.
I love the unusual subjects.
I've been on a hiatus from building. Got four on the shelf. I need to get back at it.
