How much does this model weigh in reality?

It is vastly top heavy compared to the standard riptide... Those goddamn leg joints.

Because I got a tau supremcy armor. It's heavy. I got a yvahra but it's weight seems a bit off compared to the resin of the supremcy armor, but it otherwise seems real. It's an idea I had to check authenticity because I'm pretty ocd about collecting and it would give me peace of mind.

The Y'vahra is only half the size of a KX139 and the Y'vahra is made up of plastic and resin parts. Not good to compare the two. I can weigh mine tonight if you want a definite answer.

That would be awesome. :)Just to quiet the nagging thoughts I am currently having. Chances are it's what you said about part resin and part plastic which make sense here and explain a few things, but it's always good to check

Ok, KX139 comes in at 0.96kgs about 2.1lbs and Y'vahra weighs 0.13kgs (0.28lbs). It's like comparing peas with oranges. Lol. :smile:

Thank you so much. What load out was your supremcy armour? I only have 2 triaxis ion cannons, the pulse ordnance multidriver, and the heavy Railgun options.

I weighed him with the 2 ion cannons and pulse ordinance multi driver using a Thermomix as the scales. :D
