  1. I don't fully remember off the top of my head, but was DVD NTSC? And there were some color issues whem playing back NTSC video on LCD based tv/monitors. This could contribute to inaccurate colors.
  2. Gall Force! The answer is ALWAYS Gall Force! At least when we are talking about the late 80s and early 90s.
  3. Covid vaccination has begin in Japan. Hopefully normal international mail will restart in the next 2 or 3 months.
  4. No Robotech branding, but it is briefly mentioned on the back of the box. I agree that it appears to be intentional.
  5. I loved Katanagatari. I watched it as it aired. Imagine watching that show 1 episode a month for a year.
  6. I do not believe anyone has found an alternative means of contact with them beyond what is offered on their website. The fact that this topic exists should tell you how far their customer service has fallen in the past 2 years or so. Things have been really bad following the VF-31A release.
  7. I took a gamble with EMS. It looks like I lost. No shipping notice from CDJapan. Nothing to do but wait until international shipping resumes. Because I don't want to may much more for shipping. I can wait.
  8. It was showing "order preparation" back in February. It is currently showing as "Pre-order - Payment OK".
  9. I have yet to receive my HMR VF-4 Roy from NY as well. Japan post is part of my issue, I'm hoping it is my only issue. CDJapan has yet to ship my Legioss Eta for the same reason. I really don't want to pay $40 more for shipping since I don't feel the need to have it now. The HMR VF-4 Roy and Legioss Eta are not "must haves" for me. Still, like everyone else, I spent the money so I would like to have my items.
  10. I got an email from CDJapan today. They said that the regular release is currently delayed to January. I guess we'll see if that remains true.

    Hi-Metal R

    Are you sure that it won't be [R]enewed, [R]epaint, or [R]eissue?
  12. This probably should be in the short questions therad, but aside from the usual "massive energy needs," why haven't we seen the ues of gravity type propulsion? Is it just that flames shooting out the rear just visually cooler?
  13. Yeah, lots of engineers and designers do not give enough though to access for maintenance. It is getting better, but it depends on the item. You may have awesome product, but it takes way too long to turn around it really does you no good. If 60% of the fleet is in various stages of maintenance, you only have 40% of your fleet available and lots of maintenance staff tied up. So this is a bit morbid, but I recently watched a documentary where they interviewed people that worked salvage and repair of WW2 Sherman Tanks. They have high rates of PTSD. You don't think about having to remov

    Hi-Metal R

    Well, I've never been a fan of doom and gloom, but I really hope that Bandai is really just trying to get Macross fans to spend money on their DX line. I really don't know if the non-Macross HMR products sell better, worse or just as well. Only time will tell if Bandai returns to HMR Macross. I can't see any reason for them not to. To me, HMR is the more fun to handle and playable line.

    Hi-Metal R

    So some time later we will get Hi-Metal Double R or Hi-Metal S?
  16. I've watched the original Japanese version of it. My curiosity got the better of me. I've not tried to see what Robotech has done to that. It really wants to be Flashback 2021, but it is clearly not. I didn't care for it for whatever reason.
  17. If you didn't already stumble upon this article on your own research, I found this as an interesting read: A Look into the Yellowing and Deyellowing of ABS Plastics
  18. I'm just curious and its always good to know for future reference. Since sqidd has already applied CA glue to the break, does he need to completely remove the CA glue before applying a new glue?
  19. No joke. We'll see how far season 2 takes us whenever it finally airs.
  20. If you want to go the vintage clip-on route UN_MARINE had a project he started back in February. I'm not sure how far he got with it.
  21. Still the same it seems: https://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=116&cat=388&ra=&st=&kw= Its just that now some items show up with the location "MECHASTORE." They may have just removed the listings when they moved the physical location of the items. I see what they did... They took over the space in the other half of the Osaka building and made it into the "Mecha Store."
  22. I got the same email from CDJapan. But when I try to change the shipping option for my Legioss Eta, I only get options for DHL and FedEx Priority for over $60.00 USD. Non-Registered Airmail is nowhere to be seen.
  23. Resisting the urge to nitpick....
