    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    Nice. It looks like the GBP armour has articulated hands.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    To me, the close-up of Max looks better than the group shot. I'm really into the new character reveals, and can't wait to see Dana/Jeanne wearing her armour too. The Valkyries look nice. If Kitz Concept gets to the TV Valkyries that I've been waiting on (Rick, Max, and Ben) before Bandai or Arcadia, then they'll have me.
  3. I don’t mind having an Art Critique of Robotech thread, but I think @Old_Nash beat you to the punch with the new Robotech comics. Also, why have seven different threads for subcategories discussing the same subject? Why not merge them into one topic?

    The Transformers Thread (licensed) Next

    You're welcome, @sh9000! With luck, NY will have a good discount too. I'm actually very curious now to see what other Masterpiece figures Takara might revisit after Convoy, if any. Ultra Magnus is at the top of my own personal wish list. I think the new Siege version of Magnus is showing some interesting ideas. The Takara engineers evidently still have Magnus on their mind, which is cool.

    Posting this here in case anyone else is looking to pick up MP-44 (Convoy v3). https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/offer-listing/B07L324QLS/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl2&tag=aysletsfolthe-22&linkId=969bd3901abdfa81a5f6144304eff4cc&language=ja_JP It will be interesting to see what amazon japan's final price is after all the usual discounts between now and August. For now, the early-bird link is showing the retail price.

    Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures (YT Series)

    Yeah. It remains a lost opportunity. If the Skywalker story was limited to the original trilogy, and then we got another set if characters or family to focus on with each subsequent trilogy, I do think Star Wars would have been better for it.

    Netflix Marvel Universe

    Sad to say I’m not surprised by this move at all, no matter what the actual reason is behind the scenes. Will enjoy the rest of Jessica Jones and Punisher, though, until Netflix punches the eject button on them.

    I have my own (un)healthy Optimus Prime collection already, so I'm in. It will be fun comparing this iteration to MP-10 too.

    I'm hoping that the amazon.co.jp and nippon-yasan prices for this guy aren't as insane as the US shops.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I'm going to remain skeptical, myself until Bandai does something official at this scale (like show a new display with these items or reveal release dates and pricing information to the public). For now, it seems more plausible to me that any diorama or play set add-ons would be fit more to the Macross HMR series. We've seen that already in the HMR marketing displays, so there's a precedent there. Heck, we've even seen Bandai tease HMR-scale stands modeled after Zentraedi capital ships.

    Neflix's live action Cowboy Bebop

    Yeah, that live-action Bleach movie was okay and I hope they are able to make good on the easter egg/promise at the very end. I'll give Cowboy Bebop a chance. I still need to watch the live-action version of Fullmetal Alchemist. Death Note couldn't hold my attention like the anime; Space Battleship Yamato was a superb train wreck.
  14. Wow. For some reason, I thought you were further along after reading your review, @kajnrig. But if you have just finished season one, then you are in for quite a ride. Glad to see you were able to get past those initial doldrums. Also, pay attention to the commercial bumps that pop up halfway between each episode. You may have noticed already, but they provide more information on the story's mythology.

    That sounds about right. If v3 Prime is priced between MP-36 and MP-43, then I would be okay with that. To be honest, the third party iterations have not won me over for various reasons, so I am hoping that Takara hits it out of the ballpark in the quality department and that I can pick this guy up at a discount somewhere. Of course, I'm not against an improved KO if Takara drops the ball like they did with the paint on MP-36 Megatron. I wouldn't mind a v3 Prime KO in the same vein as Impossible Transformation, for instance. Something like the old MP-10 KOs, however, I'll skip. I was unlucky with those and always got flimsy figures.
