    ^Not cool dude. I get that you're frustrated with MyKombini, but I don't think these types of comments are relevant or appropriate here. I didn't down vote you, but I think you should consider editing your post.
  2. Hi-Metal R

    Patience, patience...all in good time.
  3. Hi-Metal R

    It's always those non-Macross releases that throw me off. It'd really be interesting to know how many each of these releases were produced and/or sold.
  4. Hi-Metal R

    So, we've got the VT-1 scheduled for an August release (from an April 2nd pre-order), but nothing beyond that at the moment. I wonder if we're going to get an announcement this month? In the later half of 2017, we had the Defender released in August, the VF-1S (35th Anniversary - Messer) in September, the VF-2SS in November, and the Regult Missile set in December.
  5. SpeakerPodcast is back! *And congratulations to Creative Sphere on the English Translation job for Passionate Wakure. Keep up the great work guys!

    No issue with my Hikaru VF-1A leg armor. Sorry you guys are having to deal with this, and I hope if you're reporting it back to the vendor it's in turn being brought to the attention of the manufacturer. I think this line has had quite a good run with quality assurance, and here's hoping they can keep it up for the duration.
  7. Hi-Metal R

    I'm going to have to re-check mine tonight to confirm there's no issue, but I didn't notice anything when it arrived.
  8. Hi-Metal R

    Hikaru's Super VF-1A has arrived. No issues to report, although I just realized I need to pick up more stands.
  9. Hi-Metal R

    Received a shipping notification from HLJ at 10:30 PM (PDT) last night for Hikaru's VF-1A Super. On the way!
  10. Hi-Metal R

    One week to go! My last HMR purchase was Max's VF-1J (November 2016), so I'm really looking forward to this one, and with the VT-1 coming out in August...I've got no complaints this year.
  11. Sounded like you guys were having a lot of fun this episode (or maybe it's something in the Tokyo spring air). A lot more conversational, but really enjoyed listening in on this one. Thanks for all the details about the Noriyoshi Ohrai exhibit as well. Clearly had an impact on all of you.
  12. Hi-Metal R

    Bandai's website currently shows a list price for the VT-1 as 9,720¥, so HLJ's 9,000¥ is a bit of a discount (10%)...although nothing like the other vendor discounts. Looking back, Bandai listed the upcoming VF-1A Hikaru Super as 9,504¥. HLJ's listed retail is 8,800 (a discount of 7.04%) and they're actually selling it for 8,360¥ (a discount of 12.04%). So, I don't think HLJ is really off their own mark, just when compared to other retailers. Ultimately just happy I was able to secure a pre-order. Here's looking to the future, and hoping the Tomahawk is announced before the end of the year! That's the one I've really been looking forward to. *sorry. This was in response to amptor's "9000 yen at hlj lol" comment.
  13. Hi-Metal R

    Thank you! I've never been able to find them right when they go up at HLJ. What's your secret?
  14. The change of the Official Fan Club name is telling indeed, although I guess it really is no great surprise. The Delta is dead, long live the Walkure. As mentioned, it will be interesting to see how the Delta series and Passionate Walkure are perceived by future fans, without the concerts and ancillary events & materials (as something new to anticipate/experience). Time will tell... Thanks to Renato for the explanation of Honne, Tatemae, and Hadaka no Tsukiai. Also, always great to hear Karice's point of view as someone who clearly appreciates Anime but is not as steeped in Macross miscellany.
  15. Hi-Metal R

    Very true, although I haven't had any issues with past orders (thankfully). Here's hoping this one goes as smoothly.
  16. Hi-Metal R

    Most excellent news! Definitely looking forward to this release.
  17. Just finished listening to the most recent SpeakerPodcast. Thanks for all the additional concert details. Curious as to why the creators/producers of the show wouldn't continue with Delta instead of creating a new series, especially considering the popularity of Walkure? Seems like there's an opportunity to continue the series at this point, although some may be looking forward to something new/different. Perhaps, as you guys indicate in the Podcast, Wakure's idol fans don't necessarily cross over to Delta (which is peculiar). It will definitely be interesting to see where Macross goes from here, especially because of Walkure's popularity. Thanks again, and as always...looking forward to future Podcasts.
  18. Hi-Metal R

    Yeah, that's all it was. It was last year this same time that the Defender was announced.
  19. Hi-Metal R

    I was really hoping for an new HM-R announcement today (3/16). So it goes...patience, patience, patience.
  20. Hi-Metal R

    Here's hoping we get a new HM-R Macross announcement this month.
  21. Thanks for all the detailed information Tochiro! I'll be sure to keep a closer eye on the twitter feed and listening for upcoming events in future Podcasts. I think I'm most interested in getting a chance to see DYRL in a theater one day. Very jealous of GiantRobo's 35mm screening sometime back. Had a chance to finish up the Podcast tonight, and hearing about everyone's experiences from different sections of the arena, of the separate shows, and their favorite songs was great. Thanks for getting everyone together to share their thoughts. Also, glad to hear that GiantRobo is coming around: Kaname's always been the best.
  22. About half way through the Podcast, and it sounds like the concerts were a blast: May'n, the floating/moving see-through stage, pen-lights galore! When you have a moment, and if available/possible, what other upcoming Macross and/or Macross related events are currently scheduled that a fan should keep an eye out for? Also, is anyone out there currently keeping a calendar of Macross-related events that they'd be willing to share? Thanks in advance!
  23. ^You guys are on a roll this month. Just finished listening to Episode 101 the other day and now this one's ready and waiting. Thanks so much for the time and effort put forth on all of these. Truly appreciated!!!
  24. ^Ditto. Thanks for sharing all of the photos from Wonder Festival. A lot of great items.
  25. Hi-Metal R

    Although there was nothing indicating it would happen, I was really hoping there'd be an announcement this week for the next HMR Macross release. Oh well. Here's hoping March holds some good things for us.
