  1. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    tekering indicated in the Mospeada thread that he removed the silver paint on the underside of the face shield. It will probably be the first thing I do once I receive mine.
  2. Bandai DX VF-31

    Keeping it rolling Nippon-Yasan Received: wm cheng, Not Yet: no3Ljm, Kinzoku, spacemanoeuvres, funkymonkeyjavajunky, Boobytrap Refunded: Vortech I plan on keeping my PO as long as NY will let me. If it is there I still have hope of it being fulfilled even if it takes months. If they do end up cancelling it then I'll just bite the bullet and pay aftermarket prices for it. There are some valks I'd be willing to let go and not pay that kind of price for. This is not one of them.
  3. Arcadia SDF-1 Movie version 1/3000 reissue

    Yes, there was an article last year where they said it is something they want to do. https://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2017/09/08/arcadia-talks-about-how-it-makes-the-best-macross-and-megazone-23-toys-out-there/#4f591401e974 “Even though we are re-releasing the movie version of the SDF-1 Macross, we do want to do the TV series version as well but that is still undergoing approval from the copyright holder. Personally, I really want to do it.
  4. FEXTHOBBY Macross Line up

    Also just got the 101 and 102F. Seems like a nice combo of the accessories so that I can mix and match to which ever configuration I want.
  5. Bandai DX VF-31

    I ordered and paid for mine on 10/27, about three weeks after most people based on the comments I have seen. For selfish reasons I hope that NY fulfills their orders in some random arbitrary manner and not based on order date. I'll keep hoping that NY will get their stock. If not I'm prepared to pay the aftermarket price for one. This is my favorite VF-31 design and there is no way I won't have one in my collection.

    That was an easy PO. Still up at HLJ and Amiami. Got it from Ami since they at least have a discount.

    Not that most people want to spend time or money modifying their expensive purchases but if the visor really bugs you it should be an easy fix. In all the picture I see the raised part appears to be on the inside, not the outside, of the visor. The light reflections over those lines appear to be smooth with no distortions or shadows. I also do not see any raised lines in the side profile pics. If the lines are truly on the inside then you can hit the visor with some clear blue paint. Each layer should make the lines less and less visible. I suspect this is why the first version looked different. It appears to have a darker/deeper shade of blue as if it had more layers of clear paint on top. If it still isn't to your liking then you could paint over it with an opaque color of your choice.
  8. Bandai DX VF-31

    Same... did Bandai ship them to NY individually... by carrier pigeon?
  9. Hi-Metal R

    Well not the item that would have been at the top of my list. That would have been a destroid or enemy mech. Even a Nexx VF-2SS would have been preferable. I'll still be getting this of course and take solace in the fact that the line is continuing so that hopefully one day I can have a complete line up of SDFM toys.
  10. Soul of Chogokin - part II

    I think it's 'To Be Confirmed'
  11. Arcadia 1/60 VF-1J 35th Anniversary

    Woo hoo! Super excited about this. I really like items that are an easy pass so that I can save money. End of 2017 and the first four months of 2018 have/will hit my wallet hard so this is welcome news. Congrats to those who want it though.
  12. Macross figures

    I hope you're wrong too. I really need some articulated Macross pilots in my life.
  13. The Road to Hasbroverse

    This is wonderful news. While what we get in the future may not be any better than the steaming pile they have been dishing out at least now there is the possibility of an improved product.
  14. Mospeada Riobot 1/12 - Anyone know the release date?

    This item is being discussed in this thread The latest news is that they have been delayed by two months. We'll see if they hold to that or delay them again.
  15. Macross figures

    Thanks for the info. You weren't kidding when you said it wasn't cheap. They are charging $200 + PP fees + domestic shipping in addition to the cost of the kit. Too rich for my blood, especially for a 3000 yen kit. I'll take my chances with YJA and if I don't get one I don't get one.
