    You know, it's times like this when I wish I knew how to read Japanese. I'm guessing many of you guys just get these for the artwork?

    Cool news about the PlayStation mini. As the first disk-based console to take this approach, I think it paves the way for more. I wonder if load times will be shorter since games will surely be on solid state form? I was thinking back to my PS1 library, (which isn’t that extensive) and think that Gran Turismo should be on there as well as one of the Twisted Metal games. But I guess (like with Konami) it depends on who’s willing to license for it.

    Yeah, I think someone mentioned it a couple of pages back. It will be interesting to see how much their pre-owned selection develops. As far as a HMR VF-1J from Macross the First, I’d think that @sh9000 would have that on his custom list somewhere. I believe there was a magazine that had stickers you could use?

    Just to further clarify… I opened one of my VT-1s, and the right heel is indeed not swinging back far enough. The left side is fine. I checked 2 of my VF-1A CFs, and they both have the issue, though one only slightly. I also checked my VF-1J Milia and one of my VF-1J Hikarus, and the feet on both of those swing fully back as they should.

    Question about the Yamato 1/60 series.

    I'd be willing to bet you could find a few people on here to take them off your hands at reasonable prices, especially if they're the "V2" later editions.

    Yeah, maybe 2019 will be a banner year for HMR!

    Seems like the Saturn was home to several good shooters (and 2D games in general) especially when you consider the ones only released in Japan. I never had a Saturn. I focused on the PlayStation (and somewhat the N64) during that time.

    Review of the 1/100 OWL One from @jenius is up on YouTube:

    Gaiares is a fantastic game, just incredibly difficult, at least for me. Then again, I'm not super skilled at shooters. I think my brother finished it back in the day, but I've never been able to get very far. (@jenius, did you ever complete Gaiares?) I just discovered Musha Aleste this year, and it's amazing. Haven't gotten past stage 2, but also haven't put that much time into it. Compile definitely knows (or knew) that they're doing. Super Aleste (Space Megaforce) is probably my favorite shooter of all time. I've beaten it countless times since 1992. I got a Famicom copy of Gun Nac, and am looking forward to trying that out. I never got into the Gradius series at all, and don't own any of them, unless you count Life Force (Salamander), which is pretty cool but I haven't played it lately. I'd say Konami's best shooter is Axelay. I picked up Thunder Force 3 a while back, and it's pretty impressive as well. I've got the Macross 2036 PC Engine game. I haven't played it a lot, and it seems like it's just OK. I'm currently trying to finish Macross Scrambled Valkyrie on the Super Famicom. Incredible game, even apart from the Macross tie-in. I am having to play it on easy mode, though. As I said, I'm not that excellent with shooter games.

    Hmm. I never played the original Ninja Warriors -- on the SNES, was it? Maybe I need to check it out. Edit: So... with current prices, I likely won't be checking it out anytime soon. Seems it's become a pricy one.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Very nice selections there! Especially the VF-1D. Good move on the 30th Anniv versions. Did you just get all 4 of those recently?

    At least the Kakizaki got made as a prototype, while we've seen no such evidence of a VF-1D, to my knowledge. While I don't think that the DX would cannibalize HMR per se, I wonder if the 1/48 launch has consumed a lot of development and marketing bandwidth lately.

    @no3Ljm, do you know if it's a full album or just a single?

    Looking at their site, there are photos of what look like all-gray prototypes and then this photo which looks like a finished painted version with several details:

    Holy huge Optimus! Had no idea this existed. And I thought DX9's Gabriel was big. What is that, 4 different scales now that the MP-10 design can be had in?
