  1. That is really m****d up, Hasegawa !!.
  2. Surprisingly ahead of their usual time, Hasegawa already uploaded pictures of the Kaname's colorful bird.
  3. Awesome box art from Tenjin Hidetaka, as usual !. I'm not into these colorful variants but have to agree they look great. Also, The paint/decal job on the pilot figure looks very detailed. On a side note, I'm actually surprised they 'forced' Hayate to wear a helmet this time. Always criticized the custom no-helmet EX-Gear rigging, as high-Gs pulling without a pressurized oxygen airflow is really hard to digest.
  4. Coming with a Superpacked -31S might go against Hasegawa's genuine double-dipping trend though. But they already went against it with the Dual-Lil'Drakened -31F. I was surprised seeing Messer's bird being issued with the add-ons prior to its barebone form.
  5. Yeeeaaahhh !!!. Finally we get new content (purportedly excluding the livery-optional items) !. Both new items are now available for pre-order @ HLJ already !. https://hlj.com/1-72-scale-vf-31e-siegfried-chuck-use-macross-delta-hsg65849 https://hlj.com/1-72-scale-vf-31f-siegfried-kaname-buccaneer-color-macross-delta-the-movie-hsg65850 Always wondered about the way Chuck bird's radome would be tackled. Liked the outcome. Now we're pending to see Arad's bird... with Superpacks on... maybe?
  6. @Seto Kaiba and @jvmacross, thank you for for the insight and images. No new hardware (except for the RMS-3, if applicable, as I don't recall seeing it mentioned in previous books), but couldn't help notice weapons from earliest to latest generations (except the heavyweight PaCSWS/ACSWS items) are being listed for the VF-11. I'm afraid I'll be putting a lot of burden on my phone's transgoogling app as soon as I get the book.
  7. Have mine collecting dust in the HLJ private warehouse, pending shipment consolidation. Does the book have the weapons loadout section ?. Anything interesting ?
  8. Coincidentally, there was a coffee-time debate at the office about new AA-capable UCAV developments like the Boeing's 'Loyal Wingman' project or the Russian 'Okhotnik-B' prototype (both controlled by a 'mother' aircraft), and everybody ended up agreeing about the human factor (i.e. physical strength/resistance) being a sort of hurdle on further achievements like hyper-maneuverability. The ISC idea quickly came to my mind... bringing back the human pilot to the game instead of pushing for more capable unmanned systems.
  9. Yupp, Overtechnology is always the perfect excuse for every out-of-whack numbers analysis. No complaints about it, though, always liked the 'light as a fighter but hard as a MBT'-alike ideas.
  10. Didn't pay attention to it before, but now noticed the "third" wing pylon always loaded with just a single ejector/rail for an AMM-1 instead of the usual triple rack. It seems they'll be covering the extra hardpoint with weight/space limits. A 'disected' gunpod (or both gunpods) would be great !!!!
  11. Actually, even with the forecasted delays, it would greatly surpass the frequency we get new Macross series, so it's still great news. Just an audient's point of view. Drooling time for me until release !!.... and look who is making an appearance !?!?!?
  12. .... Ghosts.... those elusive Ghosts that never end up being issued....... I'd be up for an order of 9 Ghosts at least (provided the kit box has 3 of those). Probably after the Armored Sigfrieds come out... which will be issued after the Super Sigfrieds... and so on...
  13. Yes, MtR was something worthy of an OVA. I hope they cover the topic on this new book, as well as the competition between the VF-11 and the VF-14 for the main variable fighter. Based on SBC trend to briefly depict the antagonist VF on each VFMF issue (well... on some of them), we might get in contact with a 3D-modeled VF/VA-14 for the first time (I might have missed it before).... just daydreaming a little bit. Additionally, some coverage of the Jenius family role on the testing phase would be greatly appreciated. There's a lot of thread related to the VF-11 to cut for this book. Hopefully, SBC won't 'drop the ball' this time.
