    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Oh wow, so when transforming starting from fighter we should lift and slide the wing up before attempting to pull the wing tabs out from the leg, which would make the process a whole lot easier? If this is the case, I wish I had known. I thought I was going to break the toy the first time transforming. Lol I had to get creative and make use of fishing lines.
  2. How are the 29 toys compared to the 31? I saw the reddish 29 is coming out again. Is it a new mold or rerelease?
  3. Proportions are odd, but I'm definitely in! I don't think the nosecone on the Bandai version slides back like on the Yamato version. That would help a lot in Battroid mode.
  4. VF-1 (TV Max is probably my favorite), no doubt. It's just too iconic. Looks great in all modes. Very simple, yet elegant. Well balanced as a toy. Best transforming mecha imho. I feel the same way about the VF-0S. It's slightly more stylized and, for me, it has the best head design. If it weren't for Bandai's DX rendition of the VF-1, I'd probably like the VF-0S a tiny bit more. It just looks meaner. Lol Finally, the YF-19 is very impressive. The transformation is very cool and the kibble is kept to a minimum.
  5. The more I handle the DX VF-1, the more I appreciate the simple, but effective, improvements Bandai has made to make this toy more enjoyable when compared to the OG Yamcadias (which is still really good). This toy is so beautiful in all modes and nothing is overcomplicated. Sure the DX VF-31 is more impressive to many people, but the VF-1 keeps everything simple, which I love. I have zero complaints about the DX VF-1. Some people appear slightly disappointed that this rendition of the VF-1 is more of an evolution than a revolution. I honestly don't know what more Bandai could have done to improve it without compromising the essence of the VF-1's simplicity. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Improvements that add to the experience of handling the toy are welcomed though.
  6. I finally have my own TV Max! Super happy with it. ^^ It does take up a lot of room so I might just stop with the DX line if I can secure a 1S. Lol
  7. The dog is coming with me. Lol That's my buddy
  8. Thanks for the tips everyone. Unfortunately I don't have a hitch on my crv or else a small uhaul would be a perfect solution. Maybe I can look into how much it is to install one. The only thing is I'm planning to sell the CRV almost immediately once I get to final destination since I'll need AWD for the winter.. or else I would not mind investing in a hitch if it is a costly transaction. Maybe I can go to a bike shop and have them break down my two bikes and ship them. Then I'll just have the Macross toy boxes and my dog. Lol @Slave IV I plan on selling/giving away everything I have before I move (I rent so no access to a storage place after I move).
  9. I may be making a long move soon (15 hour drive). I am leaving everything behind except for my Macross and Gundam toys (with it's boxes and all), my 2 road bikes, and my dog. I have a CRV and I think of the best way to transport these things. I think it will take up too much space where my dog won't be comfortable so I'm thinking about shipping my toys, but for some reason I fear the toys might arrive broken. Has anyone had any experience moving their Macross toys? How was the shipping experience for a larger amount of toys? Anyone with better suggestions please feel free to chime in.
  10. Could it also be bad air circulation / heat? Some people have left their Valks in boxes and discover years later they've yellowed.
  11. Holy crap that looks awesome. Must resist...
  12. Where did you order from? I might grab a set if still available.

    Hi-Metal R

    HMR YF-21 please Bandai
  14. I think the Hikaru's 1S color scheme edges out the Roy color scheme just by a tiny tiny bit.. But I still prefer to have a Roy 1S for my collection and just get the 1J for Hikaru. To be more minimal, for the VF-1s I try to keep it to one valk per character that I like. Vermillion Squadron plus Roy
