  1. Past hour
  2. Arcadia never did any 1/48.
  3. I haven't really been following this thread, is Arcadia done with the 1/48 line now that Bandai is in the game?
  4. Cpl Maximilian Jenius? I never really noticed that before that he was a corporal.....can't think of many Air Force organizations with non-coms as pilots.
  5. I can hear the money draining from my wallet I wonder if these will be popular enough to sell out on PO night. I’ve only been collecting for a couple years so I don’t know what it was like during the original Yamato releases. The Arcadia variants have been easy enough to secure so hopefully it won’t be too bad.
  6. Bandai is so going to do the 1D, and then VT-1 and VE-1 to get all the heads out... At least, that's what I'm hoping.
  7. Just received mine and it looks awesome! Don’t see any cracks or other oddities - haven’t checked the shoulder joints yet but will do that after my conf call. This is my first DX Chogokin and I’m really impressed by the weight of this thing. It was also my first time ordering direct from Japan and have no complaints...product was well packaged and arrived extremely quickly. I didn’t get charged duty either. Two thumbs up for anime-export. edit: I think the panel lines are fine as-is. I was of the same mindset initially that there wasn’t enough detail and that panel lining would be a way to bring out more depth, but...at least in person, the lines seem visible and fine as-is.
  8. After a few days...I make a configuration for my HMR toys. Only have 1 set.
  9. Looks a little busy from top perspective but I quite like the panel lining on the chest to offset just the plain white, more for max than for hikaru since he has that nice red. How would I go about doing so? A gundam marker? I know you have to apply top coat or something for gunpla but feel scared to do so on this toy.
  10. Today
  11. Thank you @MKT! Great photos I like the grittiness of shots.
  12. I have to say, this is looking like a much more robust design than I was expecting. I'm actually a bit impressed.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    It's an impressive piece, with a lot of little details, but man if it isn't the most unwieldy hunk of plastic in the Macross product line. I messed with the set a little, but didn't apply the whole thing, using the VF-31E I had laying about. Orange not quite a match, but it wasn't too bad. All I did was mount the arm cannons and giant cannon pack to see how they looked, and it kind of worked to keep most of the plane streamlined. I think my least favorite part is the flippy/spinny/sliding boxes of missiles on the booster packs though. I don't know what good they expected that little black stub piece to do, but it's absolutely ineffective on mine at holding the pods aligned, and they just sag in fighter mode. Also think the little beak-like covers over the big cannons are pretty useless, since they don't really seem to work well in any position but snapped closed. I did get two sets so I have one to customize, but I might try and find a spare set of regular super packs to do the same with, so I can mix and match the components.
  14. Amazing work. Based on the end of the video I assume we'll be seeing a Tread transformation video soon. Thanks for sharing and keep up the great work, Carl
  15. I just hope they skip the regular release, and go straight to PF like with the VE-1 (and at the same price point). I've been wanting a second VT-1 for years, and a PF version will definitely pop in a display. Of course, then we just wait for Bandai to release the 1/48 version, which I hope they actually get around to.
  16. Looking gorgeous! I am glad I am getting two of this. Maybe it is due to WB, all the photo I have seen so far seems to indicate that Max is much more on the white side compared to the 1J. Even the youtube review video make it looks that when the two are seen side by side. Weird. Glad to hear from your in-person impression. It looks much better this way.
  17. True. RIP sir. Thanks for the great memories.
  18. I see - that's sounds a bit like the Columbus Day over here then.
  19. Ah at first didn’t see difference in joints but now see the grooves missing on top of max’s Left shoulder hinge joint. Meaning the grooves are on the bottom?
  20. Can't find a thread dedicated to the 30th anniversary version, so posting here. If anyone is looking for one, a good seller is listing one with a nice price: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Arcadia-Macross-1-60-VF-1J-Valkyrie-30th-Anniversary-color-version/153647811914?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908131621%26meid%3Dc643c0ba50d9449fb5f130866854e52d%26pid%3D100678%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D11%26sd%3D153647811914%26itm%3D153647811914%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2481888&_trksid=p2481888.c100678.m3607&_trkparms=pageci%3A1da035ff-de1c-11e9-acd9-74dbd1802544|parentrq%3A5edfe62916d0a86015c1f165ffa0a285|iid%3A1 I have had good service from this seller. The 30th anniversary version look really crips and nice if you like he color scheme.
  21. What is that destroid Cheyenne? A kit? A custom build?

    FEXTHOBBY Macross Line up

    Sci-Fi 03 re-issues just sold out on Fext Hobby's site.
  23. It means they're going to cancel the orders on you and actually blacklist you from ordering again. You sure your CC is paid up?? JK I find that many of these companies wait to charge you until the product is processed for shipment. So, for example, I ordered Max direct from AJ. I have a pending charge and suspect that I won't see it hit until it's processed for shipment. Nothing to worry about on the AJ side. I haven't ordered from 1999 but know that HobbySearch is reputable.
  24. National holidays don't mean much here, unless you're a civil servant. I received postal deliveries this morning; a courier brought my Amazon package this afternoon; I even had university classes to teach today.
  25. Has anyone who ordered the new super fighter from HLJ had it shipped yet? I can add it to my cart but they want like 300 for shipping, last time with the gerwalk it was like 80 or 90. I sent them a message but have not heard back, just wondering if anyone else is having an issue.
