    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I’d think the scale would also be off, with the 1/60 missiles looking too small on the 1/48. I’m probably in for a set, even though it works out to around $3 per missile piece. Being TWE, I expect that initial prices at NY shouldnt be any higher than MSRP, right?

    Yeah the Regult missile set has really skyrocketed. Really glad I bought one at release, but I’m also hesitant to open them now.

    HMR VF-4 is available again at NY: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/26613-hi-metal-r-vf-4-lightning-iii.html Price has gone up considerably though.

    ¥6354 ends up being ¥5883 if you're not in Japan, since the 8% tax is excluded.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Nice M&M. Hasn’t the price on the Yamato versions come down quite a bit since the Arcadia re-releases?
  6. ScrambledValkyrie

    I still like my 1/48 Collection. How about you?

    @nightmareB4macross, that’s an amazing collection with some impressive custom work! Thanks for sharing.

    I think when you're ordering in the volume that @sh9000 typically does, every little bit makes a difference.

    Hi-Metal R

    Thanks. Figured it out -- it looks like it was already in my cart and wouldn't allow 2. I'm too sleepy to be doing this...

    I'm getting an error trying to add to cart at HLJ.

    Hi-Metal R

    I'm guessing NY will still come in as the cheapest, once they list it?
  11. ScrambledValkyrie

    Hi-Metal R

    Yep, just got one from there myself. Plus their website has no issues.

    In that first battroid photo, I think it's just the angle that makes it look missing. The other light is just barely peeking out from behind the head.

    That's retail? So most places would likely have their PO price set below 7K, I'd think. I believe the non-super VF-1A and VF-1J from 2 years ago came in well below 7K.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Good point. One set will be enough for me since I will likely only get the 1J and the Focker 1S.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I think you might be right but hope you’re wrong. The question is: if they release a movie version Roy next, do I go ahead and get it, not knowing if they’re going to ever do a TV version?
  16. ScrambledValkyrie

    Hi-Metal R

    Ah, I didn’t realize that Roy also had the larger gunpod handle. Good to know.
  17. ScrambledValkyrie

    Hi-Metal R

    No clue about the Japanese, but if I had to guess, it’s that they’ve redesigned the optional larger hand to actually hold the gun pod handle instead of molding the handle into the hand. At any rate, that looks like the standard HMR GU-11 handle on top that fits into the integrated hand, and the one below looks like the optional handle only available (so far) with the GBP VF-1J.

    FEXTHOBBY Macross Line up

    Those orange-colored parts would probably look great on the upcoming VF-1D. Any one know if Fext Hobby was planning to make new sets compatible with the 2-seaters?
  19. ScrambledValkyrie

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    So based on the photo, does this mean we are not getting red-tipped TV reaction missiles?
  20. ScrambledValkyrie

    Hi-Metal R

    Those two are also the last and first valks that we see Hikaru pilot. Kind of poetic.
  21. ScrambledValkyrie

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I’m hopeful that the 1J will turn out great, and that a Roy 1S will not be far behind.
  22. ScrambledValkyrie

    Hi-Metal R

    Finally checked in after a couple of days of being busy, and you know, Thanksgiving, and... Wow, they are actually doing the 1D! While I'm really excited, I honestly wouldn't have thought we would get this one for quite some time. The PO date is now added to my calendar. And @sh9000, those destroids all look great on those displays.

    Cool custom Roy pilot. I keep meaning to do one of those. Is that F15 supposed to be 1/100?
  24. ScrambledValkyrie

    Hi-Metal R

    That’s awesome — and hilarious! Well done, @sh9000. I hadn’t seen that before.
  25. ScrambledValkyrie

    1/48+fp's, 1/60+fp's, 1/72, 1/2k, 1/3k,1/100 and now 1/144

    I’m looking forward to that day!
