  1. ^Tochiro, thanks for sharing all these pics. That's quite a gallery of photos. Truly appreciated. Definitely looks like something to check out in person if possible.

    Very interesting. I wonder where this pre-owned stock is coming from.
  3. Only half way through at the moment, but it's been another great listen so far.

    Right on! I'll definitely stop and say hello.

    Jenius, are you going to be at the Super Dimension Convention this year?

    Finally had a chance to unpack my VT-1. The color difference between the molded and painted parts is indeed noticeable, but under natural light and a casual view it's hardly remarkable. Despite the color issue I think it's ultimately a great addition to the collection. Really glad I picked this one up.

    HLJ shipping notification received. One step closer.

    That color difference between the molded plastic and painted parts is really unfortunate. I know there have been other pictures where the difference isn't so noticeable, but it's still disappointing to see it...particularly the divide between the cockpit and the fuselage.

    HLJ payment confirmation. Just waiting for that shipping notification, and then on the way...
  11. Only 30 minutes in, but it's been quite a listen so far... "The SpeakerPODcast Crew is back from Wonder Festival 2018 Summer. In a word, it was MOSPEADASTIC! So many Mospeada toys and kits. And of course, we’re here to talk all about it this episode. Hope you guys like your toys, because we talk about a lot of them! First, though, we need to catch up on all the recent Macross news and announcements – and there’s a lot to discuss!" http://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-111-wonder-festival-2018-summer/

    VT1-Super Ostrich incoming and Nex's VF-2 on the November horizon. If this is it for 2018, there will only have been 4 Hi-Metal R (Macross) releases for the year. Not sure what this means (if anything) for future HMR Macross releases, but I do hope they keep 'em coming...even if it's at a slower pace. Just trying to keep hope alive for that Tomahawk we keep getting teased with.
  13. Nice avatar you got there.

    ^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.

    Patience, patience...all in good time.

    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.

    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.
  18. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
  24. 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.

    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.
