  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. To quote Max himself: Utsukushi!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. All those would great to see. But you know they already did the Monster, right?
  7. 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.
  8. Looking forward to seeing that Q-Rau painted up in TV colors, @sh9000
  9. That Lego NES looks sweet. I'd be tempted to get one as an accessory for my retro game setup. The mechanism inside the TV makes me think that some could design their own game screens after other titles.
  10. From what I’ve seen, the original Hi Metal TV Hikaru 1J was much more likely to yellow than the DYRL 1S and 1A versions, with its really bright white plastic.
  11. Agreed. Whenever a review starts with anything resembling “DO NOT BUY THIS” they lose me. I understand people’s need to vent, but I don’t need to be the recipient.
  12. Glad that some of you were able to get a Roy PO in at HLJ. I missed out on this round. That said, seeing it pop back up on HLJ was how I got my Hikaru VF-1J, so I'd be confident they will fulfill the order. Hopefully I'll be able to secure a Roy eventually.
  13. Yeah, that’s too steep for me at this point. Sorry to hear about your health situation. Hope things continue to improve.
