  1. Agreed, that customs declaration is a little too detailed. I've never seen one so specific. Does AE tend to do that?

    @sh9000, that is one great-looking setup. Can I come over and play?
  3. I think it depends on the source material. In the case of DYRL, going to higher resolutions is likely to only exaggerate the out-of-focus shots throughout the movie. For a more modern production like Frontier, if they could re-render at 4K, it could look really nice.
  4. Same here. I’d have been lucky just to get one!

    Bandai did the 1/100 VF-25 around 10 years ago. But they are not known for being very good, and I didn’t know they made an armored version. Knowing @sh9000, it could be some custom work.
  6. Almost like Disney is tired enough with the whole thing that they themselves just want the entire “saga” to be over with, so they don’t have to worry about continuing to mishandle it. I wonder if after this movie they will breathe a collective sigh of relief.

    Pretty sure that’s the original Hi Metal Strike VF-1S, which is more white in color. Some of us are using it as a stand in for a TV version.

    The chess set idea sounds really cool. Though you’re not kidding: the pawns will be expensive on both sides.
  9. This may have been pointed out already, but I’m just noticing that the head lasers on the 1S are positioned differently in battroid and fighter. I guess that means they are individually articulated?
  10. Since these are going to be more appreciated in battroid, where the stand adapter isn’t going to matter, I’d say keep it as close the line art as possible. But it would still be great to have them be able to work with the existing stand adapter. Count me in as someone who’d be up for buying multiple sets, assuming price and color are agreeable.
  11. Bandai Hi Metal 1/100 VF-1S Roy Focker Strike (for those prefer the more TV-oriented colors instead of the HMR version) All original parts included, plus instructions unopened in the bag. Good condition overall, with some minor wear and a few loose joints. I noticed that the “backpack” may have been glued together by a previous owner. Box has some moderate wear, mainly on the top. Feel free to PM for questions or details. Asking $100 $85 shipped to continental US (payment via Paypal friends & family)

    Yeah, I suspected the 1D came with one, but wasn't sure. I actually haven't opened mine yet. And @vlenhoff, you're making me want to go ahead and pick up a Spartan. It's not my favorite destroid, but maybe it would satisfy my desire for a Tomahawk in the short term. I would really love to get a Monster, but realistically don't have the space.

    I think it was just the VF-1J armored and the VT-1. The original Hi Metal (non R) VF-1J and VF-1A models came with one as well.
  14. You’re not the only one.

    True, though Bandai hasn’t included that detail yet for their VF-1S in either Hi Metal or HMR.

    The pilot, the hands, and the fact that the TV versions are usually whiter. Plus if it came with super parts, those would be more green and less blue.

    The Scout was probably not at the top of many people’s lists (mine included), but still very exciting to see it potentially get made. Also seems logical for Bandai, since they can reuse the leg molds from the standard Regult. And count me as another one who would rather see a proper TV Roy instead of a reissue.
  18. I see their photos of the stands holding an HMR VF-1 wth super parts, but I think I’d be a little nervous doing that. Haven’t people had some trouble in the past with similar arms from Tamashii failing?
  19. @UN_MARINE, this is some amazing work! Very impressive. If I had any Joke machines, I would totally want one of these.

    Best color in my opinion would be the light tan from the anime, but at this point, I would take a Tomahawk in just about any color that Bandai decided to release, even that purple-gray that they teased earlier.
  21. Congrats to all who were able to score a Max. Based on pics here, he’s looking great. It will nice once Bandai decides to release Kakizaki and Roy to round out the TV team.
  22. Yeah, same here. I missed the fact they were now available.
  23. Very cool! On the bottom of the right hand page, that appears to be the VF-1SOL-S design from the Super Famicom game. It says "scramble valkyrie" above the image, and the year matches the year the game came out. I recall there being some debate as to whether or not Kawamori was actually responsible for that design.
