    Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

    I honestly think Arcadia is going to go for color seperation akin to RG kits. I see most on hinged areas for strength yes, but in other areas it doesnt look like its slaved to function.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Thanks man. That makes me feel a lot better.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I grabbed a second one at NY in case my first at CDjapan got cancelled for some reason. Never bought from CDjapan before, so I'm not sure if they oversell and cancel.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    My VF-1 master file shows them as actual cannons, shell firing.

    It also has barrels molded into the cannons alongside the intakes. This thing rocks.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Man, even the head guns have indents to simulate actual barrels. I have never seen that on a VF-1 Toy. A page has turned. Arcadia's dominance in the VF-1 line was important and long lasting but it is now over.

    AND....then I see the ugly font used for the "pilot name" and "vermillion leader" It looks that way on a lot of real world fighters though. Of course, I will buy it. I agree also with Mommar on the VF-1S. As far as the pre-order goes, I just accept that I will pay a $20-$40 mark up on the release date as I have never made a pre order window in my life with DX toys. For anyone new, the team on hear is not joking when they say "30 seconds". I have learned though that the fear of not getting one if you miss the pre order is irrational. They are always there on the release date with a mark up of about 10 -15% which I can live with. I do still like the experience of trying to get a pre order and I try it every time anyway. It has the excitement of Christmas morning.

    It also does not have that ugly obvious hook on the backpack that looks horrible in Arcadias Gerwalk. That thing is a huge eye sore. I know Gerwalk isnt popular but for me Gerwalk is what makes macross. That hybrid look really defines and is unique to macross fans.

    The proportions on this make the yamato look skinny, you can really see it in the ratio from the upper and lower leg widths. The only thing i see that could kill this is of bandai does diecast in the hips, if that happens, this thing wil be a floppy mess in about 6 months. If they are ratcheted, I am selling all of my 1/60 vf-1's.

    FEXTHOBBY Macross Line up

    Don't forget. Roy was such a badass that he flew into space without a booster while still carrying Hikaru's escape pod underneath him. A total boss. This will be a great one to have.

    Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    My source states that the Booster Combo will be released and will done with the VF-0A first followed by the VF-0S. Premium finishes of that version are unlikely at this point and it serves as the end point of the 0A/0S print line.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    I am buying one just because of this video, our community is so awesome.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    $300 for a great toy that will end up with loose hips that ruin the toy 2-4 years later or sooner based on transformation rate. I really wish Bandai would make the VF-31 hips standard across all of their 1/60 DX line. It is the single reason I will pass on what could be a great toy. Outside of the VF-31, the Bandai DX Macross line is like a shooting a star....looks great for a moment in time....then it falls apart. I love this line of Bandai which is why I have such a strong opinion on the hips and durability as a whole with paint chipping and joints. And....yes, I will likely still buy one.

    Hi-Metal R

    Roy is such a badass that he didn't even need the booster to fly into space in Episode 2, he even did it carrying Hikaru's fuselage. When Roy decides to use this, it is simply to mock the other pilots who truly need it to get into space....they know the big dog can fly up there without it. The wimpy pilots know that Skull-001 pees on them and marks his territory.
