    Well, the kit comes with all 3 heads, A/J/S, and the decals for both Hikaru and Focker. The figure runner themselves are only labeled Pilot Figure and not by name, but if you look at this shot of the visor, those are some big, tall eyes. They definitely look more like Hiraku's than Focker's.

    Runner preview of the sitting pilot figure: https://plamax.exblog.jp/29802407/ It looks like Hikaru's face is molded on in the inside surface of the clear helmet visor

    Don't use the mobile url. If you paste the plain url the forum software will embed it automagically I didn't actually notice the extra ponytail on the 35th Anniversary version, just assumed it was decal/sticker spam

    Vanilla Valkyrie is on display at Shizuoka Hobby Show. No date, no price, still listed as DYRL version.

    Waiting for HLJ to charge me for mine. I am actually contemplating making mine Mirage, but I have so many heavy mod projects already.....

    On the plus side, it's so huge that masking off the emblems should be easy Ended up pre-ordering from amiami. Gonna paint it Max colors :3

    hrm, actually, is this a licensing issue? OG Macross not allowed on the english store? And looking at the math GSC store => 39800 + 2000EMS = 41800 Amiami difference from that is 8820, which would probably cover the EMS shipping anyway?
  12. Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    So I decided to try out the GSC store for their 2,000 yen flat rate EMS shipping, the only problem is I can't find this thing on their english site https://goodsmileshop.com/ja/p/MAX_PLA_JP_00056 The japanese site works, but it doesn't seem to be listed on the english one. Halp?

    If that includes ALL THE THINGS (both Strike and Super Gerwalk as well as plain Valk legs) then it's fine by me.

    Well, I'm not really sure if the minimum factory prices are comparable to a large mechanical kit. If you start looking at their bigger stuff, the Pacific Rim kits were in the 7,000-8,000 yen range, and they're taller than the average Bandai MG. So it's 3-4 times the price of a minium factory figure, but boatloads more plastic. Then you have the 1/12 Panzer IV, which is 490mm long, 220mm high and 3.2kg packaged weight but still only ~16,000 yen. Plastic-wise the VF-1 probably has at the minimum double of what the Panzer does. If we're placing bets on price I'd says 25,000-35,000 yen for just the fighter release. 40,000-50,000 yen for Super/Strike Gerwalk. After that add the EMS/FedEx/DHL only shipping due to massive size and obligatory customs charges that larger packages have a harder time escaping. Definitely still under one thousand dollary-dos, but still hard to explain to your partner
