  1. speaking of tbeast.....this just got updated with new photos of final product of the tbeast sideswipe and it looks pretty epic. https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/DFeqOWRnaK85DgzNEGCMdw
  2. *sigh* gonna need that roy, misa, and minmei qipao version. i sigh because i want it but I know these (and for that matter SH figuarts and the like) figures might be good but objectively speaking you can get a lot more toy for the money elsewhere in toy collecting, but none will scratch the same itch. now that these will exist....the itch must be scratched.
  3. to be honest the floating head neck thing doesn't look too bad. its got a more toon presence than willis...not sure if that is a positive thing for me but it is for some people. its got a more reasonable scaled alt mode than willis, and a touch better overall in vehicle mode. i'm not going to replace willis because willis pretty damn good still and $120 could better be spent elsewhere in this hobby (IMO), but if we get a redeco as a toy hound or detritus (love g1 repaints) I may pick it up. i don't feel like i'm missing much i guess is the whole thing here. haha.
  4. looks like they corrected her height. lol completely new mold/different body/frame whatever its called. gotta get it. either this or the episode 1 outfit is the one i would have preferred first.
  5. kinda nice. wonder how close to the photo it looks. i thought about springing for the sh figuarts one but its a lot of $ for one figure, a throne and some background statues (the imperial guards are not articulated so far as i can tell). if one were to get this, and two ~$15 black series imperial guards you could be all set on the emperor...although those cloth robes on the imperial guards don't look as nice as the static figs on the SHF.
  6. so i am weak after seeing the recent photos... and since i already have the first 2 and amazon jp still has stock....i've decided i'm gonna complete the trio and then also get fuke. thanks guys! haha. now i got to make myself be OK with JUST the blue legioss (and tled if they go for it). bandai makes it easy to not buy additional stuff after beign lucky enough to snag a DXC VF-1J because well preorders with them suck and i don't like aftermarket prices on dx chogokins. sentinel is going to require more self control. lol
  7. i bet its mp-44 minus the trailer and all the other extra parts etc...redeco'd as per usual black prime/nemesis prime for a more reasonable price (say ~$200). if its a truly new mold like scourge from RiD, i'd be surprised and a little dismayed they are doing even more non G1 stuff (despite how that design looks like it could be from g1). fans hobby better get rid of that stock quick (they are having black friday sale with black g2 prime discounted heavily btw. haha)
  8. i doubt the stands come off the same "trees" (aka made in the same molds) that the parts for the actual toy are. There is no reason to do that unless you want them to be the same material or their inclusion is "free" (well some extra machining in the molds) from a mold size standpoint. yes, there are material issue with most clear plastics but those are easily solved during the design phase if you know the application the stand is designed for (not the case for most action stands from bandai for instance as they are generically for things of a certain size)....or you can just make it stout as hell and not worry. i don't mind the connection point being colored plastic as sometimes the connectin points are sometimes tiny and they need to transmit the load to the armature....but IMO there is no excuse from a materials standpoint for the bulk of the armatures to not be clear. i mean i have some yeti stands that will probably work (they are obviusly cut out of thick solid acrylic and not molded to shape so i'm not using this as an argument in the "it can be done" part of this post) , assuming he makes some adaptors.....but i only have 3 yeti stands in my entire collection...they are pricey and obviously not included with the toy. lol.
  9. its great that it comes with a stand...but why can't companies make the stands clear? black plastic only looks good if your background is black or your display cabinet is black/dark. FFS companies...clear stands already works for everyone, and every background, and every display cabinet...so we can pretend the thign is actually in the air instead of on some black plastic armature.
  10. well thats not happening for me, but it looks like a lot of thought and consideration and love were put into this design. kinda doubt it'll be better overall than a dx chogokin vf-1...although i'm biased since the Vf-1 is still my #1 mech of all time. Also, I wish these were the size of Evolution toys legioss, and not the toynami/aoshima ones but i guess i can be thankful it as it might have cost a whole lot more at the evolution toys 1/32 scale (which btw is just slightly taller than a 1/60 vf-1 in soldier/battroid mode...though a lot bulkier). still, hope this will be "best legioss ever!"...which it has the chance of being despite my personal preference for the overall proprotions and scultping of evolution toys' legioss' soldier mode.. also, thanks to all who answered on the currency feedback on amazon jp. i went with yen and taking the gamble that the rate will be more favorable when the card gets charted 7 months from now. lol. also i agree...if it were NY...i always use yen becomes their conversion rate is not friendly at all! haha.
  11. as soon as i saw the photos in my social media feed i knew that resistance was futile. amazon.jp PO placed! (btw do most here order in yen or usd?) he legioss is that design that draws me in again and again. yes it has a big head and its a little too squat for me, but GODDAMN it looks good...especially the fighter mode. The downward sloping wings look good actually, although its a little too much i think....also not sure how that would look with the tlead attached if they make it. wonder if it can go one "click" up to even? can anyone photoshop that head smaller? i know its a niche market but i hope somebody will make a smaller head for this guy
  12. that terrified zentran is iconic though! it'd be cool to get any zentradi done well, maybe the 3 spies? haha..not at the current price point though. i also like the macross city mayor guy . in terms of what i'd actually really get (since it might get made)....rick in his orange firest episode suit would be great. max, mirrya, ben, claudia,...gloval, breetai, exedore. tahts already a very big collection compared to whats been previously announced or release din any other line and i'd be happy to have those. also i kinda wish they'd make the boxes smaller...like sh figuarts does for their star wars figures etc. rick's box si pretty big for whats included, same for minmay.
  13. i'll probably get it, but KC if you're listening...roy fokker was way more tanned...also the face sculpts look a bit off. the default face is too stern/angry. also he's bit too tall.
