  1. Bandai DX VF-31

    The more pictures i see of this thing the more i like it. So wish i had mine now! The only tiny negative nit pick i can give the 31 is the rear landing gear design. It looks like it has mud flaps. I get that it works and is part of the design but i would have liked a more conventional rear landing gear. But it's such a small issue i'm not even that bothered. Looks great in the diorama and with armaments.
  2. Macross 7 Discussion

    It's my first time watching mac 7 and i am currently on ep 37. As far as thoughts go comparing it to everything else I've seen in macross, it's definitely one of the weaker series. It's dragged out far too long. The story isn't strong enough to warrant the 49 episodes i feel. It should be the usual 26. It's very repetitive and I'm struggle at times to stay engaged in the story. The music however, is good. Of the three "macross pillars" the music is the strongest. The mecha is meh, and the love triangle is lame and to be honest just plain wrong. Mecha is always my biggest draw to macross but for mac 7 i have to give it to the music. It was definitely the main focus above everything else. Well done Fire Bomber.

    The thing's a work of art. So excited to get mine!

    That looks great, can't wait for mine now!

    The 31a kit does look cool. It definitely has the vf-11b blood in it's veins.

    NY's discount system is a joke! when you have spent over £500 you get £0.69p?!
  7. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    They certainly look like legs, even has toes that are retracted. I would be interested to know what the write up says in the image. The stance does give it a gorilla looking pose. The beach assault i think is the most you see of them.
  8. Bandai DX VF-31

    My order off ebay says the 26th, the ones from loopaza say the 30th. It will be sometime in April before I can add the 31a to my "A team"
  9. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    Please no. A valkyrie is unique enough it doesn't need 4 legs. As far as more thrusters is concerned I would point you towards the Vf-27, yf-29 as a few examples of 4 thruster types. Even the vf-1s with strike parts has technically 4 thrusters. So they are out there. The only thing I like with 4 legs in the macross series is the anti-an amphibious destroids in macross zero. They look cool as hell.

    Yeah what @no3Ljm said 1/100 scale. For the money it should have been a bigger scale.

    It has a more retro look to it. "transformers" look maybe? Quite an early valk too i believe?

    Nin Nin game still has pre orders for the vf-31s $207.27 + postage

    I've never seen the cutlass before, crazy. Like a fixed wing vf/yf-19 isn't it.
  14. Bandai DX VF-31

    Ah yes, the yamato vf-1's had the green super parts. Trying to keep continuity but at the same time not due to the setting and time line.
  15. Bandai DX VF-31

    More poor humor i'm afraid True, my HMR vf-2ss is looks well with the sap parts. I'm surprised they chose green tbh.

    @dizman @no3Ljm There is no shortage of cool designs in the anime
  17. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    For the mecha/aircraft design team info it's here dude https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=902 A valk version would definitely be interesting! I would actually prefer them in 1/60 myself but the only alternative (no pun intended) is the model kits. Seeing as i am crap at painting the alter versions definitely were the overpriced answer. I can't argue there, they definitely do their job of holding the valk well. Just a shame there is no pivot point like the old yamato stands. Yes! Will definitely be getting some yetistands, they look incredible and give you so many options for display.
  18. Bandai DX VF-31

    Just pray it's not green like the vf-2ss sap parts
  19. Bandai DX VF-31

    It looks more like a destroid to me lol The wrist guns are cool though. I don't mind armor on valks but not when it over does it.
  20. Bandai DX VF-31

    Not a fan of the armor so it will be an easy pass

    Man you guys are critical on the details! lol @Mommar Metal Siren?
  23. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    @Chronocidal agreed, that bandai stand for the draken is God awful. Would much rather it take up less room and be articulated like the alter one. @XigfridI thought that too. Left a hell of a mark lol
  24. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    @no3Ljm it sort of does. The wings can be folded either way. Right up for parked or reversed for high speed mode. The canopy/cockpit can be reclined right back too. The super sylph just has hard points and a foldable sensor array. I have yet to "attempt" transforming that draken
  25. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I recieved my calibre wings jolly rogers f-14b 1/72 Scale Diecast Model today, and also put my alter mave yukikaze on display. As you can see the mave is loaded to bear and I love how they added an extra stand for the fuel air bomb. Gives it a really dynamic pose. I have the super sylph too, just need to get through the stupid cable ties alter use to secure the model in. They do not want you to get the model out in a hurry!
