  1. Okay, had a weekend with the 1/60 YF-19. Transformed it a few times, no issues (as in stressed plastic). Although the connection between the nose fusalage does worry me a bit. But not too shabby all around. Just wish it wasn't 200 bucks...
  2. The finacee informed me that the box arrived today, so I'll be able to vote soon. The crooked gunpod and landing gear might irk me a bit, but overall I really won't mind too much (especially since there are fixes for those). What will bug me is if any of the breakage occurs. Which will resort in me having to repack and return to BBTS. I think why the YF-19 is getting loads of crap was the price. Okay, the original 1/48 VF-1's may have had problems, but look at the price? $130-145 bucks. Still no chump change (some parts on my car costed that much), but a little easier on the wallet then 200 bucks. I'm hoping all is well when I open mine up.
  3. Got the news that mine is coming in today, YAY! Hopefully no issues. Anyway, I've been seeing a lot of b1tching about the problem, but what about correcting it? Perhaps there should be a "how-to" to correct any Yamato flaws (like a little glue here, etc). Graham, thoughts?
  4. I finally got around to watching the first two discs, not too bad so far.
  5. Still patiently waiting for my YF-19 (BBTS still has not shipped mine yet). Hoepfully I will not experiance any of the same problems you fellas are. Although I find this thread very informative.
  6. Wow. Wish I checked this thread before I placed my order. In any case I don't anticipate transforming the YF-19 multiple times, so I should be good?
  7. Hmmm... If you do not intend to play with it too much, I say okay. Otherwise forget it and hope that their QC improves with the Lancer one.
  8. I was able to return my busted arm Alpha last week and got a new one yesterday. While nothing has falled off (yet) the legs will not come all the way out and the arms when in figher mode, do not connect with the legs very well. F Toynami. What the hell kinda QC does that company have????
  9. So, I got my blue Alpha last week, and I was the victum of bad QC by Toynami. 3 strikes for that company (I'll explain more shorty...) Anyway, back to the Alpha... Yes, my missile hatch on the right should fell off and to add insult to injury, it appears that Toynami glued the swivle joint on the upper right arm. When I tried to turn ir, the arm snapped off! ... I was a wee bit ticked. I'm gonna try to see if I can return it for a new one, wish me luck! Anyway, back to Toynami. 1st Strike - MPC VF-1S, the head lasers were super loose. I had to use tack putty to be able to hold them into place. 2nd Stirke - MPC Miriya Armor set, no gun pod notch on the forearm armor, I had to resort to making my own. 3rd Strike - The MPC Alpha see above. Now, I'm torn on if I even want to get the Beta when it comes out. I'm sure they'll do a crappy QC job. And I cancelled my order for the Voltron lions they are coming out with. God know how crappy those will turn out. And on a final note... I was putting away my MPC's to make room for some other stuff. My girlfriend assisted me (by her request) and as she was transforming my VF-1S, she broke one of the head lasers (although a little model glue fixed that) then when she was disassembling the armor for VF-1J Max, she broke one of the pegs for the RMS missile! that would be a bit harder to fix.
  10. Well, I finally convinced myself to pick up an Alpha (despite the fact that now I own a G35 Coupe and the payments are killer, lol). Anyway, the only reason I pick ed it up was that when it is combined with the Beta, the fighter looks so damn cool! Is a Beta coming out any time soon?
  11. My inventory: 4 - 1/48 (Strike VF-1S Roy and Hikaru, Super VF-1A Max, VF-1A Low Viz) 4 - 1/60 (VF-1D, VF-1S Roy, VF-1A Cannon Fodder, Q-Rau Miria) 2 - 1/72 (FAST pack VF-11B, FAST pack YF-21) Also, there will be one more added to the list shortly... the VF-1J GBP 1/60.

    Alright BBTS and TMP, when's it coming here... May's almost over y'know.
  13. I dunno about the rest of you, but generally, I like the design (upper legs/hips look a bit bizarre). Also wish Yamato would go would print the skulls on, too. 1/100 scale? Isn't that gonna be small? Also, the most vital question: WHEN THE F^$% IS BANDAI GONNA GET MACROSS ZERO TO THE US?!!
  14. Actually, that does not mean it is a limited edition. Miria 639 is her desiginated name in DYRL because the Zentradi were all clones, so I suppose the "639" is a serial number. thanks...actually...I was trying to be funny...guess there was only crickets after that joke... thanks ladies and germs, Ill be here all week...new material every night!! WOKA WOKA! My mistake. To my defense I posted that early in the morning.
