    Destroid Armour Waxer
  1. Bandai DX VF-31

    Arad's valk has more appeal to me personally than compaired to Osma's (maybe it's do to the colour scheme more). With the onset of the armoured parts, it actually reminds me of the Stampede Valk; however Osma's version looks like a barrage of mixed armour of what SMS can find in the storage locker and stuffed everything in a hurry.. Looks like everyone will be hitting the F5 button in the hopes of getting a copy.. Don't want to pay an exuberant amount for Arad's unlike Hayate's Kai which was over 30,000 Yen via lottery.

    Taken from a quote by William Cowper's poem, “The Task” (1785): “Variety is the very spice of life, That gives it all its flavor.”
  3. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I actually find that Thunder Magnus is more aesthically closer to the G1 version of the C-310 release. The new TT Legends God Ginrai release doesn't even make the cut. Note to add: Is there anyone pre-ordering the SOC Dragon Caesar?
  4. Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

    Then you hit F5 until your digits starts to crumble which may (or may not) secure your order in the process.
  5. Bandai Sv-262 DX valk

    Do you have enough Shanix to get a real Draken @seti88 and put it in your hanger? If you're willing to get the 1/72 model kit and try the paint scheme in it, kudos for doing it. If you have the patient to try it on the 1/60 offering, then go for it.

    The only HMR valks that has a stand are the VF-1J (M&M), VF-1S Messer, and the DYRL Strike Roy (If you did the pre-order or the other option is to see if the stand is up for grabs) to the best of my knowledge. You could get the Stage Act 5 stands through your local going hobby shop that sells them.

    I think that the SV-262 will get more appeal during the movie run and boost up sales. If not, then Bandai will have to do some heavy thinking afterwards.
  8. Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

    Arcadia valks are not too usually budget friendly to say the least (as they can go for a hefty sum after MRSP). I managed to get an Arcadia VF-1S DYRL Roy at a slight discount as it was used within my budget of around $200 CND and can pay a bit more if there's another valk that catches my attention (beyond $250 CND is my limit). You can actually get pretty good deals if you know where to look.

    HMR VE-1 arrived yesterday from AmiAmi (not too picky about the slightly damaged box as I'm not a MISB type of person as the actual listing says it was pre-owned). Still in the hunt for the HMR VF-1J with GBP and may get the Ostrich down the road.
  10. Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

    I was actually expecting some resin copies of Ivanov's version; however we ended up getting the poster version from two years ago. This reminds me of a 3rd party TF company (who is well known to make stellar products) in which shows a few renders for the pubic, goes silent after the show and months later the product shows up on the shelf.. I think that Arcadia has enough on their plates as it is (in regards to the premium finish Valks and the SDF-1 as their focusing on that more). For myself, I rather let Arcadia focus on the Premium finish stuff first and then tackle the SV-51 afterwards. I rather have a well built product then have one riddled with multiple flaws and QC issues upon getting a copy.
  11. Bandai Sv-262 DX valk

    I knew that it came out as an 1/72 model kit (which was posted by myself with a pic from Amiami with the Ishta awhile back), however I have not seen Bandai do one in Roid's colour in 1/60 scale yet. Would like to get Keith's and the add-ons (if possible), if not, then I would like to get Roid's version with the add-ons then.

    Thanks to @no3Ljmfor his post on the VF-31 thread, I played a little game of "I spy with my Eyes".. Low and behold the Elvis Draken (shown underneath the arrow in which I drew)! Hopefully that Bandai does decide to make this.. Edit: Changed pic for clarity.

    Your order of the HMR VE-1 should be arriving soon @Roy Focker. I ordered the last copy of the HMR VF-2ss from Manda on the last weekend of January, made the payment on the same day and chose Eco Sal for shipment. Was ready for shipment as of the 30th, mailed on the 5th and just arrived at my doorstep 20 mins ago.. However, I got nabbed at Canada Post Customs at YVR for $26.60. As the quote goes: "You can't win them all"

    I meant to say re-lease of the Elintseeker (with tweeks if needed). Premium Finish format will definitely will take a beating to my wallet and my budget!

    Wishful thinking here folks: Since that the HMR VE-1 has been released, do you think that Arcadia will produce their version of the Elintseeker (after all, they're redesigning the SV-51)?
