  1. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    Hopefully a regular rerelease is on the way, I'll even take an unpainted kit version. Not sure why Arcadia hasn't brought those back.
  2. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Found the control art for the 1/72 VF-1. The swing bar appears to be in the nose instead of parallel to the back in Fighter mode: https://kitzconcept.hk/index.php/blog/KC918/ Also shows retooling planned for the VT-1D
  3. Arcadia 1/60 Super VF-1J Max & Millia Release

    Did Arcadia ever specified a tentative release date for Max this month?
  4. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I heard that the F-15SA has FBW, but is there a hard G-limiter built in? I was reading forum posts elsewhere about the F15C VS F16 in DACM and the Eagle guys said they sometimes had the edge because their system wouldn't limit them whereas the 16 was limited to 9G's from its FBW FCS. Also read that the F15E bled speed pretty fast when in DACM compared to the F16.
  5. Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    They can't use Macross designs/likeness in future media(movie, cartoons) but are able to produce toys/models based on SDF Macross designs. It does look like a reverse engineered Yamato with different articulation for the hands and it's hard to tell if the knee/lower leg is able to extend to bend the knee forward more for guardian mode. It isn't clear if the ankle can extend either. Ultimately I'm hoping for something sturdy as I like the size and the guy who designed this used to work for Mattel. However I worry since Yamato's V2 1/60 mold was already tricky to get right by Yamato themselves(anyone remember the cracked shoulder hinges!?), what more for a company reverse engineering it, at a smaller scale too? As is it looks good. Maybe this will be George Sohn's dream come true; a modernized HCM. For Robotech toys, this is a huge leap from the MPC and 1/100 VF-1. For Macross fans this is the only other 1/72 VF-1 toy aside from the HCM from 30 years ago, but scale aside, Macross fans have had better options prior. I think it won't stand toe to toe with the HI METAL R and Yamato 1/60 - 1/48 VF-1 toys. If the qc is good I think it'll be looked at as an affordable VF-1 option but not the best overall. I am willing to give Kitzconcept a shot but proceeding with caution. Might wait for reviews from first adopters. I am pleasantly surprised that this comes with a stand. Also surprised at the price. It's been a while since we've seen a perfect transformation VF-1 toy for under $100. If this had the heat shield transformation, knee/ankle articulation and details of the Yamato VF-1 with the arm/lower body transformation and bigger vertical stabilizers of the HI METAL R VF-1 I would be very pleased. I want to see shots with the gear down and from the underside in Fighter. I wonder if the head will be able to tuck in flush without the visor showing(something I love about the VF HI METAL/HI METAL R VF-1). I doubt the side covers are integral but would be very surprised if they actually are incorporated into the transformation. I hope the gun can be held tightly(MPC had issues with that). I don't care for the lights. I would be all for it if removing them would slash cost. I'm not sure why Toynami seemingly insists on LED's so much. Hopefully this toy turns out decently. I bet for Robotech fans that never imported the Japanese Macross toys, this toy must seem like a god send.
  6. What's next for Bandai? (Wish List)

    I'm not sure. I never knew who the designer actually was. All I knew was that it was the same designer from the Yamato VF-17 and I read that from your old posts. The 171 doesn't strike me as one of TREX's designs though. I could be wrong. I'd love to see the 171 retooled with a much sturdier crotch lock mechanism, a redesigned mechanism to transform the lower legs and less parts overall. That toy was a victim of having too many moving parts got transformation coupled with the usual loose Bandai Macross diecast ball joints. The forearm and lower leg transformations came off to me as needlessly more complex than they should be. Not that they were actually complex but to get to step A to B required more steps than it should have on those parts.
  7. What's next for Bandai? (Wish List)

    I get the feeling it's either their Bandai's internal design team or the freelancer that designed the 171. Hope TREX designs a Renewal 262. There's reason enough for one to be made moreso than there was for a 27 Renewal.
  8. Arcadia Offices.

    It did happen but ended with the Rekka no Ryu rerelease from Armor Plus
  9. Arcadia/Bandai VF-1J 35th Anniversary?

    Not a fan of those graphic design poster/race car decos on anniversary valks. Would prefer to see an SDF homage like the DX VF-31C in Hikaru's VF-1J Vermillion colors. Hell I am surprised Bandai repainted the YF-29 with a Focker deco when they could've made a more fitting homage using the VF-25S.
  10. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Anyone here is the Advanced Super Hornet CFT's add more drag to the Super Bug than the CFT's on the Strike Eagle? Also I've been perusing F-16.net and the Viper guys on there seem to not think highly of the Beagle in DACM.
  11. What's next for Bandai? (Wish List)

    I'm hoping Bandai lets TREX design a DX VF-25 3.0. I've got cracked hinges on my Renewals and I was never rough with any of them. IIRC DX 1 was made by the internal Tamashii team. For the Renewals, the lead designer of the 1/72 VF-25 plamo kit oversaw the design. Meanwhile TREX designed the DX VF-31 and it's a big step in the right direction. Damn spring pins and cracked hinges!
  12. Whats next for Arcadia?

    I think the next new mold will be an all new YF-21. Mr. K said he wanted another go at it years back on the Arcadia dev blog and reiterated as much with that Forbes interview not long ago.
  13. Bandai DX VF-31

    Makes sense to make the J Kai an exclusive. Symbolic due to the knight symbol/coming of age but not really combat relevant. I'll stick to my regular J.
  14. Ace Combat 7

    Didn't see a thread on this and it's been a long time since I posted here(lots of changes here too). Ace Combat 7 got delayed and I believe it's coming next year. I worry it's just going to be a short campaign technology demonstrator(which is how Assault Horizon came off). The last best games in the series IMHO were the PSP games and possibly the 3DS one(remake of AC2 with squadron fights and 3D). 6 had a short campaign with long missions. With 7 the counterattack maneuvers(Cobra-esque) have been brought back sans rails. Not sure if all planes are able to perform it but the recent trailer showed the Super Bug, Flanker and Raptor able to do so. Hopefully the campaign will be long and substantial(like Ace Combat 5) and not just a PS4VR tech demonstrator to show clouds.
  15. DX Chogokin YF-29B Percival

    Does Rod's squadron have YF-29B's too or just him? Does he turn good? I like how it looks like 171 Nightmare colors. Pretty cool that Bandai is making this.
