    The Medicom - Mafex - RAH Thread

    Just received the MAFEX Astro Boy. I really dig him. The design is good, but the scale is screwy in comparison to the others in the line. The odd thing is that there are so many accessory pieces that you could almost make a complete second figure from them. I can honestly say I have never seen a figure of Astro that includes the butt guns.

    Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    I'd love a Blockhead, Bushman, or any of the many other designs. I am grateful for the two they have done (they really are brilliant), but I doubt we'll see more.

    Bandai Hi-Metal R: Xabungle!

    Brockary just arrived and it is indeed fantastic.... I can't be the only person buying these.

    Yamato 2202

    They are pretty damn good actually. The only differences I have noticed are simply to make the animation more closely match the words being spoken. It looks amazing in Blu Ray. All in all I am happy with the purchase. The only thing I'm not really happy about is not knowing when I can get the 2nd set.

    Yamato 2202

    It is very small and well made, but the images are all stuff you have probably seen before. Overall the book is nice. I will say that I was not impressed with the quality of the postcard sized prints that are also included. It seems like the colors are off. Almost like the brightness is overly saturated.

    Yamato 2202

    Just got the Funimation StarBlazers 2199 Blu Ray limited edition set. The production values are pretty good. I just want to know when I can get the second volume.

    Super Store 7 SDF, Regult, VF

    I picked up a set of both the pink M.U.S.C.L.E. and the can. I kind of dig them for what they are. I know they have the dreaded "R" word attached to them, but for desk candy they work. The SDF-1 is pretty nice. Truth is I like most of the Super7 M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. The Alien ones are pretty nice especially the Power Loader and the Queen.

    Brockary's up for pre-order. It looks like it will be a fun bot!

    Excellent....do we know when the pre-order starts? I gotta say, these Xabungle Hi-Metals are just about as perfect as toy robots can be.

    Bandai Hi-Metal R: Xabungle!

    Just received my Government Type yesterday. Out of the box and in hand it is a great toy. Good engineering, solid build, weird subject, and even the box art is nice. I can honestly say that I don't know of a another version of this particular mech having being made. I hope the Hi-Metal line keeps it up with these types of releases. There hasn't been a dud in any of the the non Macross releases. Sure the Xabungle is a little fiddly, but that is more about the design of the of the original mech than about the engineering of the toy.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    I picked up the Super VF-1S for a pretty good price mainly because I was curious. All in all the quality is pretty good. I prefer the non-light up head to the one with the LED in it. The effects look pretty cool if a bit glossy. I will say that I don't really trust the stand with the super and effects parts attached. Feels kind of wobbly and top heavy given the weight of the toy. That isn't necessarily a bad thing, just an observation. I was actually surprised by the size of it. When was the last time you bought a toy and when it arrived it was larger than you thought it would be. All in all pretty happy.

    Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    The art is quite impressive, but I thought it was odd that there isn't any sort of window in it. I mean, I love the artwork, but it is odd that you can't see the toy.

    Bandai Hi-Metal R: Dougram series

    So after much delay and an unfortunate trip to Houston my Hi-Metal Soltic finally arrived. I managed to get him out of the package, assembled, and posed. I must say that the non-Macross offerings in this line are quite impressive. He has a pleasing heft, and can be fantastic articulation. I love the 80's real robot aspect of this line. I know that we probably won't get any more Dougram mechs, but a man can dream.

    I received a ship notice on this guy. I am really loving the non Macross HM-R line too. Maybe even more that the Macross offerings, not that they are bad.
