  1. Pretty much my thoughts. Would have been nice to grab one at HLJ. Looks like they are showing "discontinued" now.
  2. Wow, just watched Empire Strikes Back last night with my family. I’m showing the movies to my son for the first time. We were talking about how James Earl Jones got no voice credit in the original release.
  3. Just snagged a Roy off of Amazon. I figure that may be about the best option for now. Looks like Buyee was going to run a little higher with handling fees, etc. I will probably pass on the 1D, but it's really cool to see Bandai making it.
  4. Complete set of empty Skull squadron boxes from the Bandai Hi-Metal VF 1/100 line, including Hikaru, Max, Kakizaki, and Roy. No toys or parts are included. Both Max and Kakizaki include instructions; Roy and Hikaru do not. Does not include the outer sleeve that holds them all together. Original plastic inserts are included. Condition is reasonably good. Appropriately, it appears that Max is probably in the best shape, and Kakizaki is in the worst shape. Asking $15 plus shipping. Please PM me with your zip code for a quote.
  5. Looking for an original Hi-Metal (not HMR) 1/100 VF-1J Hikaru. I'm not very particular on condition, though would prefer to avoid yellowing as much as possible. Loose (without packaging) is OK. PM me with what you've got and how much.
  6. Yep, so much Macross potential remaining in this line. Bandai seems to be putting all their Macross focus into DX these days. This has been a bit of a tight year for me financially, so I'm glad for the break in that sense, but would really like to get my hands on some new HM-R!
  7. I was in my 20s when 7 was released, and would agree that yes, it does fit with that early '90s visual style. I think it's safe to say that every Macross series is to some extent a product of its times, and the trends of some decades age better than others. I just finished another watch-through of 7, and while the animation looks good (albeit frequently repetitive) I don't think the colorful style has aged as well as some other series like SDFM and Zero. The other thing I noticed about 7's animation is that they didn't do such a great job of making Fire Bomber look realistic while in conc
  8. Bought this off AliExpress, and realized it wasn’t going to work for my needs. I believe this is essentially a replica of what came included with the Arcadia 30th Anniversary VF-1J. My understanding is that this will theoretically work with 1/60 VF-1, VF-19, VF-25, VF-29. Asking $5 plus shipping via Paypal F&F
  9. To quote Max himself: Utsukushi!
  10. Get yourself a few sets of the Hi Metal VF-1 super parts from about 10 years ago, and you’re covered, assuming you don’t mind that the arm parts are movie style. I’m pretty sure that’s what they used in that photo.
  11. Those were fun to hear! Lion is probably my favorite song from Frontier, though I think the big band style is better suited to the original Macross theme.
  12. All those would great to see. But you know they already did the Monster, right?
  13. I don’t own a Messer, but believe the white plastic is unique to that version. Other HMR VF-1S head lasers are gray. The original Hi Metal 1S is closer, but still off white, and also sculpted differently. If Bandai had decided to give us a true TV version VF-1S in HMR, that white color would have been perfect.
  14. Looking forward to seeing that Q-Rau painted up in TV colors, @sh9000
