  1. Looks like we now know what became of him later in life.

    Everyone’s talking about the flaps, but for me the one area that worries me the most with regards to durability is the hinge right after the hip intakes. Since it’s able to swing both forward and to the side, I’d imagine that the connection point is going to be pretty small. Swinging the hips forward/down was always an area where I had to use a lot of force, regardless of the maker and model, so I just hope it’s strong enough to withstand repeated movements.

    Wow that looks great! Doesn’t even look like a 1/100 in those pics. It has the presence of a bigger scale toy.

    You’re probably more color-intensive than most men are. I know I’m not. I don’t really put much value on whether something is hot pink, warm pink, or whatever else kind of shade or gradient of pink it is. For me, pink is pink. In fact, it was only because of my wife did I realize that all these shades of pink had different names. And to answer your question, yes, I would most likely be fine with any of those color variations you mentioned for Max and Millia. Anyway, my point is it’s hard to say that majority of collectors put as much emphasis on these kinds of details if in the end more people still bought it anyway rather than those who didn’t because of things like the color shade or inaccurate panel lines. There are other more important details to be concerned with.

    I would suspect you're doing something wrong, but maybe if you could share a pic we can determine what's causing your issue.

    I’m not sure about this statement. Even in this board, there aren’t very many who are that particular with those smallest of details. Personally for me, if it looks good, then I’m perfectly fine with it. I am very much open to less screen accuracy if the final result is better looking IMO. A couple of recent examples are the Metal Build line and the Riobot line, who take creative liberties with the source material. Same is true for Fewture (aka ArtStorm). And while my dad was a pilot, I wanted to be a pilot, and I love airplanes, what got me into Macross wasn’t just the jets. It was that these jets transformed into robots. Just seeing the jets is boring, kinda like what happened to me in Delta where 90% of the time they never transformed out of fighter mode.

    They look like they’re dancing to me hahaha. Maybe this is after they made up.

    The bumper goes at the back of the hips. No parts forming. It is perfect transformation.

    My experience with Weijiang TF figures has always been tremendously positive. Their products are always superior to the originals in almost every way. Of course most of the credit still goes to HasTak for comig up with the original designs, but lately I get the idea to just wait for the Weijiang KOs instead of getting the originals...

    Whoa, this means I’ll be having more than 1 HMR VF-4 in the collection if these get released. I honestly didn’t expect them to milk the mold.

    I accidentally ordered 2 at AmiAmi due to the timeouts and delays.
