  1. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    *does a Google search for VF-14 Vampire* WHY HAS THIS NOT BEEN MADE INTO A TOY? *does a Google search for VF-5000* WHY ARE THERE SO MANY COOL VALKYRIE DESIGNS THAT ARE NOT YET MADE INTO A TOY? I WANT, NAY, DEMAND THAT ALL THESE COOL DESIGNS BE MADE INTO A TOY! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH

    You know....I never once freeze-framed that particular scene. Are those VF-17s???
  3. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    The magazine scan shows what really looks like 2 identical photos of the canopy opening. What's the difference?
  4. This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    How can anyone afford NOT to buy this?

    What, exactly, is the history behind that armor? I've seen kitbashes of it over the years, and I just assumed it was a fan being creative. I've never seen that armor in Macross or DYRL. Looks awesome, though. Does the VF-1 still transform with the armor on?

    The paper stickers aren't good quality either. The art is too low resolution, certainly lower than the typical HG Gundam kit.
  7. I am enough of a Macross whore to buy this?

    At minimum, it looks like a compact-size VF-31 figure that can at least transform into Gerwalk mode!

    Random request: Can someone pose the VF-2 next to a few Deluxe-class Transformers? Mine has been shipping since FOREVER, and I NEED more photos. Most of my collection is Transformers, and so seeing the VF-2 next to some Deluxe figures will be a clear visual indicator, to me, of the size. Thanks!
  9. Bandai DX VF-31

    I wouldn't put too much stock in the eyedrop comparisons of the blue color. In the photo with the VF-31J on top of the Kai, it's simply higher and thus closer to the light source. The photo of the 2 jets together seems more fair, but even then, they're inches apart. The differences in blue are quite small in that photo, and it could just as likely be chalked up to lighting. For a true comparison, we should have the 2 jets right next to each other with lighting above both jets. It looks to me, though, that the two jets have the same blue. I mean, think about it. It's Bandai. BANDAI. Does it SOUND like a Bandai thing to do to give a minor repaint a subtly DIFFERENT shade of blue? Or does it sound more like Bandai to release a minor repaint, keep 99% of the production line the same, and add some black stripes and a knight logo?

    Heh. I think the arrow is just pointing to the wrong thing at "Air intake."

    Aaaaah freeeeeeeeeeaking hell. I preordered my 2 VF-2SS in July, and they haven't shipped yet. I got impatient of waiting and sent a message to the vendor. The response stated that 1 of my 2 VF-2SS has a "paint issue," they "contacted supplier to get a new one, but no more stock." The vendor refunded me the cost of 1 of the VF-2SS and stated it will ship one VF-2SS to me "this week." Sigh. No damage done. I'm glad the vendor noticed a defect, I'm glad they won't be shipping me a defective item, and I'm glad I received a refund. I wish the vendor was proactive in telling me this, but in the end, no damage done. First world problems, I guess. I had my heart set on getting TWO of these, and much sooner than this.
  12. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    The YF/VF-19 is one of my favorite hero mecha of any anime. Maybe it's a nostalgia thing. I have 2 VF-31 toys, which are superior to my Bandai VF-19 Advance in every conceivable way, yet there's always the appeal of the YF-19. I have one VF-19 Advance, I LOVE the mold, flaws and all, and I would LOVE to get another one but it's so expensive. I happily welcome a YF-19 repaint of the VF-19 so I can get another of this mold at a less-than-$400 price. I don't really NEED too many mold changes. All I ask for is a cockpit that opens like the YF-19; 2 halves, rear half opening with the hinge at the back, front half with the hinge at the front. The Arcadia YF-19 opens like this, but the nose cone droops!

    Not only does it not match the plastic, it's too translucent! Unless you're putting the decal onto a white surface, the color of the plastic will show through the Decal!
  14. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    Let's also mention that the decals are LOW-RESOLUTION! Like an older comic book, from the Jack Kirby era! Okay, fine, not THAT bad, but you can clearly see that the labels are low resolution.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but we've seen many promo pictures. However, it's just the same promo pictures from....June? July? I'm pretty sure those were actual physical prototypes, not CG renders. However, they seemed to be hand-painted prototypes that were HEAVILY Photoshopped. For example, some photos show some rather distracting black metal hip joints, while other photos seem to have Photoshopped these joints out and replaced them with shadow. The Photoshop is so strong, it surely looks like CGI renders.
