Now, that thing needs to have a real speaker built in.

I'd prefer if they just made it out of styrofoam, and sold it for about $5.. I don't see how they'll ever get the thing to stand up straight if it's made out of any kind of good plastic. :P

Even then though, unless this thing does come with a speaker and a built-in mp3 player, I don't think there's anything that could justify it costing over $10. Does it even have any moving parts?

Or.. maybe if they made it into a nerf-ish type gun, and the actual projectile portion is made of foam, and shoots across the room? :lol:

Cus he has a very busy job and also 2 young kids now, both under 3 years old IIRC and kids of that age tend to drain all your time and energy......LOL!

For those of you complaining about Speaker Pod Gamma, nobody is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to buy it ya know!

It really IS a niche product for the die-hard completist Macross 7 fan, but you gotta give kudos to Yamato for even making it.

For some reason, I thought we operated under the "if they made it, then I need it" mode. Sure the first 1/60 VF-25 line almost convinced me otherwise but the v.2s set me in back in the same path!

Someone head to the Bandai booth and check for that VF-171!!! I need it!

*rehooks Yoshinol intravenous feed*

ahhh!

OK. Let's just have those words be the only thing on this website from now on. Trimmin' the fat, baby. :P

Right.... But I thought, you know, if he's actually here, and going to WF... then... :wacko:

Way to go Yamato!!!

Would there be any possibility to have attachement struts made to attach this in the top-side of fighter mode. I know it's a non canon request, but it sure would be cool.

BTW, is the actual speaker projectile removable and does it reveal the speaker???

I still vote for a spring loaded foam tip. ^_^ Even better if it includes a tiny button cell sound chip doohickey that plays Planet Dance on impact. :lol:

I do wonder if this came about because some people just weren't satisfied with the fold booster...

Gimmicks, price range? What are these strange alien concepts you refer to?

It will sit there looking pretty and cost a lot, that's all you need to know.......LOL.

And you will be grateful........Mwahahahaha!

I still need to pickup the sound boosters before thinking about this puppy. But a very cool offering nonetheless.

Looks like it's all molded out of one piece... could actually be a fairly cheap item. They should just include it with a reissue or something and bump the reissue's price up just a tiny bit.

Please Yamato, make it this a snap-fit, pre-painted (or molded in correct color) kit!
