  1. Bandai Hi-Metal R: Xabungle!

    I don't think I've gotten far enough in xabungle to know what that is.
  2. Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    100% agree, I'd definitely take this over the Prime 1 any day.

    On the plus side, there is some pretty significant remolding there. The intakes, chest, waist, hands, and shoulders are all reshaped. Still too bad they kept the swing out door above the right shoulder... looks so goofy.
  4. Cool, thanks for the link. Looks like lots of cool stuff.
  5. Arcadia SDF-1 Movie version 1/3000 reissue

    Got one, thanks.
  6. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I love me some mech battles, and Zero scratches that itch, but I get the hate for it. First, it dove headfirst into the "sufficiently advanced technology seems like magic" element that was also used to justify the Sailor Moon act of Delta (although there are certainly elements of Plus and Seven that went there also). Remember, there's a bunch of flying rocks and sorcerer stuff in Zero that was initially a big WTF moment for a lot of fans (particularly fans that were never thrilled with Mac7 who thought they were getting a gritty realistic show or fans that still identified more with Robotech). The story also jumps around... I think I actively searched for the episode between 4 and 5 only to realize it didn't exist. Shin Kudo was also like an Isamu Dyson without charisma. I'll give this to Delta, Hayate isn't nearly as unlikable as some of the other male leads in Macross.
  7. Arcadia SDF-1 Movie version 1/3000 reissue

    Does anyone happen to have a clean, fairly high resolution photo of a Yamato 1/3000 SDF-1 assembly kit box they could send me? I'm hoping to find one that is pretty straight on. I can fix color or whatever, just need a clear image that's not blurry. If you got one, please either just post it here or shoot me a PM. Thanks!
  8. Hi-Metal R

    No, I'm on my phone right now but I have some comparison pics of those toys and it's a clearly different gray.
  9. Arcadia 1/60 VF-1J 35th Anniversary

    I gotta say, this scheme has grown on me. I'll buy one.
  10. Hi-Metal R

    That there is an example of viewer engagement; someone asked me to try it in the release schedule post and it made me curious what it would look like.
  11. Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

    Seems like a pretty quiet Wonderfest.

    It's too bad they didn't delete the flip over shoulder piece... They're definitely competing with decade old toys rather than trying to set a new bar.
  13. Hi-Metal R

    Thanks for posting that! I also just updated the article on anymoon for anyone who wants to take a meander through all things VF-1 HMR including the VE-1.
  14. I have listened to 3/4 if the podcast while I edit photos for my site, it's good stuff, definitely recommended listening if you don't mind spoilers.
  15. Hi-Metal R

    Well at least you have hope, I'm fairly certain my second regult set is lost in shipment.... Started a case last week and no word on that either.
  16. Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    Seems like you would need a tripod to display it, I wonder if you can build it with the feet made for standing.
  17. Calibre wings robotech

    So it looks like this has been released? https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/u183940775
  18. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    I missed this earlier... might be a typo on the measurement of the VF-0.... unfortunately I probably won't have another VF-0 toy in battroid mode until the PF comes out to double-check. I know I have the VF-0 listed as 25CM in other places which would still put it a bit smaller than the 31. I'll have the 31 out to double check that measurement when the Kairos is released.
  19. The Transformers Thread Next

    What's new about it?
  20. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    When Calibre releases their tomcat and the rest of mine come in, I'll shoot some pics and check it out pretty thoroughly.
  21. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Can you describe which pins? I plan on updating my review when my others arrive and may want to examine them as a potential durability issue.
  22. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I think the farther we get away from being 16-18 year old boys, the easier it becomes too complain that they don't fit our stereotypes of older manly men.
