  1. I am interested to the 1/72 and the HMR, and probably to order one of these (in MSRP). Never in toy show, are those toys allowed visitors to try (all in case)? Thanks for your sharing. Ben
  2. Hi everyone, Love my DX VF-1S. My previous Macross toy was Bandai, plastic and transform-able kit few decades ago. This DX is so much better than plastic (very scary to make the first transformation, it created crack sounds I have a thought and not sure anyone had done it before or not. Is it possible to modify the DX and add LED, say inside the head skull and light up the 'eye'? It could be pretty cool. If not, any thought about Grow-in-the-dark paint? Just my 2 cents. Ben
  3. Good idea. I also have a thought if Bandai considers it. I have 3-4 Gundam Robot Spirits, they made with plastic but pretty details and highly flex in joints. Most of them cost about $30 - $50. I do not need it transformable, but giving the same quality as Gundam series then I am happy - my dream
  4. Thank you for your time to share your collection. I stared similar situation in my airplane collection. Told myself just to buy F-14 Jolly Rogers only (because of Macross Roy ), then I ended up with over 800 boxes of airplanes, and now selling them off. The GBPs on the top shelf look awesome! I hope Bandai will do the part set GBP for the DX VF-1S, probably with those missiles firing (like the Robot Spirits concept) as option. Ben
  5. My problem is not much to spend . I collected diecast airplanes which it maybe more easy to decide what scale to start from (1/72), it is similar theory to HMR (higher variety) vs DX (fewer). I am happy with my DX and it has very high profile and standard. For myself, I think, probably just stick with 1-2 DX is enough. I will try to find a way to physically try a HMR on hands, probably the best is going to Toy show. Thanks for your sharing. Ben
  6. Appreciated for your comment. It is true that HMR has higher variety, and this is one of the reasons I wanted to know more about this HMR. For HMR, in term of quality (such as the joint tightness, gap, parts fitness etc...), is it closed to DX? Maybe use the DX vs HMR VF-1S? Thanks.
  7. Wow, many info and I will read those links. Thank you.
  8. Hi, I loved so much my DX Chogokin VF-1S (Roy) bought from eBay. DHL shipping speed is crazy FAST! From Japan to US, take about 2 days. At this moment, I stick on Bandai (brain-wash during kid era) toys. Could someone comments about the differences between the Hi-Metal (1/72?) vs DX (1/48)? I know the DX has more details, but the Hi-M could be cheaper with more accessories?? Pro and con, or something can share. Your comments could help me or others to make future buy decisions. Thank you. Ben
  9. Hi, New here for few days. I am pretty much like you guys during in kid era, love Gundam, Macross and anime. Recently, just bought the Roy VF-1S. I have several Gundam. Robot Spirits from Bandai. They are probably in 1/144 scale. Most of these figures are pretty good, highly flexible joints for different postures. Although they are plastic, they cost about $20-40 range, pretty reasonable. I really would like Bandai to consider a new line for the Macross. It does not require transformable, at least with detail levels as they do to the current Gundam series. Hope my dream will co
  10. New here and trying to buy the 2021-4 weapon set. Could you please let me know which one is more reliable? 1.

    GBP Roy

    Thanks all. So, this is an armor set, very nice! If Bandai built these GBP prototypes and showed to public, the mold and most of the works for these parts should be ready? It could be higher chance that they will make it - my 2 cents.

    GBP Roy

    Hi, New here and love Macross. I have question about the GBP Roy . Is it an armor set to fit the coming VF1S (similar to Super part set)? Release date? Thank you. Ben
