    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Not sure if I paid by PayPal but definitely no emails and no tracking number I can find on the site, guess I'll just hope for the best.

    Is there any way to track the shipping from them? I never got an email but it says shipped on their website.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    There is a bubble in the plastic lid, it looks like the issues with the head lasers come from being placed inside the box with the laser up. They probably figured slapping the lid on top would just press the laser down into the right position and this wasn't always the case.

    MOSPEADA

    It's beautiful but since it doesn't transform, why put the big door under the shoulder sensor? It's never there in the line art and that's a particularly big door. It feels like a sentimental nod to Gakken... Being a toy guy, I do like that.

    New Macross TV Series in 2018

    Maybe we'll get some heroic Chuck moments to warrant a DX release. New mission packs for the main fighters seem like an obvious low investment upgrade. How about some 31A moments and variations? If they explore the past there's that other SV also.

    On the plus side, new Delta movie means more chance to milk excellent Delta toys...
  7. When vendors seem over priced, you make then an offer you think is more reasonable and show them cash.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    What makes the 1/55 durable is it's simplicity. It has very limited articulation and basic transformation mechanisms in a large enough platform.

    1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

    Seemed inevitable. Actually seems like these are selling. I'm genuinely surprised. I don't have the space for 1/48 toys!

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Still no shipping notice from CDJapan either... but at this rate it's all but assured it will arrive on the same day as my in-laws so I'm going to have to wait a while before I get to play with my shiny new toy

    Whats next for Arcadia?

    I feel kind of obligated to do it for my site but I've often wondered the same thing. At least this one is a step up from the 30th anniversario. My only thought is that BW strong arms producers into this. Like, it's in the contract that says they have to produce commemorative paint schemes because I can't figure out a reason why they would ever do this ahead of something like a VF-1D reissue.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    It's about the same size as a VF-31 toy and those are phenomenal. This has a less crazy paint scheme so less chipping concerns. I would say, most indications are that this thing will handle transformation like a champ.

    MOSPEADA

    My biggest beef with the arms in fighter mode is that the shoulder doesn't sit flush with the chest section in front of it. Given the reshaped shoulder, the Dark Legioss may be an even graver offender.

    Whats next for Arcadia?

    It's a factor of how much someone is willing to spend for an exclusive license. For smaller niches, it may work out that they seem exclusive because the few companies involved would like as little competition as possible.
  17. They would look better in front of a Toynami MPC VF-1... 'cause, ya know, comparatively....

    Broken VF-19 Advance

    Is that a bunch of grease or residue in there of some sort? I think I've heard people complains about cracks in that region before.

    I thought the official release date was 9/22?

    MOSPEADA

    Domestic US shipping is a lot easier to do, it can all be done online. International stuff seems to require time in the post office... Maybe it's gotten better since the last time I tried.

    The reissue has already been delayed one month according to CDJapan.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    The SD VF-1 toy is a purchased mold from another third party though right? . From what I understand, they did tighten up some tolerances, but I feel like all they've really done from scratch so far are their little Minmay dancing figures and such.
  23. I haven't been following Transformers lately. Was this the G1 re-release that has been hitting Walmarts?

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Likely no, but the only products we have from them so far aren't much to go by.
  25. Wow, I thought Robotech's The Shadow Chronicles had awful women character designs...
