    Maxfactory's Figma Line

    Although.... That door hinge is highly suspect. Not sure what to think now.

    Does this mean what I think it does?

    Ideas on a custom valk scheme

    I've always wanted so see someone do a custom of the unofficial MW scheme. http://www.macross2.net/m3/forfansonly/crazycanuck/layouts-macrossworld.jpg http://www.macross2.net/m3/forfansonly/crazycanuck/lineart-macrossworld.jpg

    Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S & VF-0A

    Hold on.... Is that a VF-1A cannon fodder (battroid) and VF-1A Shin (Fighter) in the pic or are they both the Shin version and it's just the lighting that makes the fighter seem so white? I don't care if I get a cannon fodder or a Shin version, I just want a nice mid-tone grey, not the off white the Shin seems to be headed for. For that matter is a VF-1A cannon fodder even confirmed at this point?

    Hi-Metal R

    I went ahead and cancelled one of my HLJ orders, I can't risk having my account frozen with a VF-19 Advanced in there.

    Hi-Metal R

    In the mad preorder rush I ended up with two orders at HLJ. Did anyone happen to notice if there was a "1 per customer" rule for this one? I'm trying to decide if I have to cancel one or not.

    Hi-Metal R

    I guess I will see in the morning if my HLJ order went through or not. A part of me wonders if it would be better if it doesn't. I washed my hands of the frontier Dx line long ago because of the pre-order madness and I don't look forward to dealing with it on the Hi-Metal R line. If this order does not go through I will probably just walk away from Bandai Macross altogether.

    Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014

    Oh crap. I hope not.... Seriously I did not mean to start anything. I realize I may have been a little too negative in my initial post but I just needed to vent and where better than here? It's fine, I don't regret buying it, I was just disappointed in what otherwise would have been a perfect toy.

    Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014

    That was what I was doing until I found my alternate workaround (see update on my original post). Now that I really look.. I think my workaround might be what was done for the figure on the box cover image. My foot position is identical to that one.

    Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014

    Well finally got around to transforming my copy and I'm pretty depressed. The ankles on mine are really loose. I have to balance it in battroid just right or it will fall over and even then a slight breeze will cause it to nose dive. I did not even put it in gerwalk to avoid stressing the ankles as I know its been an issue. Really really disapointed in Arcadia, to the point that I may pass on anything else from them. I've been Yamato'd in the past and but for the price Arcadia is charging I just can't overlook something as basic as not being able to stand. Real shame too because it's such a great looking toy. In the end Im sure I can disasseble the ankles and find a way to tighten them up but at $300 I'm kinda pissed I even have to. It basically ruined the toy for me and possibly my faith in Arcadia. Update: I was able to find a passable workaround. I angled the second joint above the ankle ball joint so that the feet are wider apart. This allows the top of the foot ball joint to rest against part of the inside leg, effectively locking the foot in place. It will only work for a basic "A" stance but at least the thing will stand now. Still kinda a let down, but almost forgiven due to how awesome Battroid looks.... Almost.

    The Transformers Thread Next

    I was really hoping a MP-10 reissue would be without the trailer. I scored the TRU Hasbro version during a 30% off sale for $70 CAD so $230+ CAD for the Takara is pretty hard for me to justify.... I will wait to see if there are any mold improvements or additional paint apps on this reissue. MP-11 Starscream is as good as ordered though.

    Top 5 most wanted VF-1 paint Scheme!

    I was able to put together the various (non hero) squadron schemes from the "Variable Fighter Master File: VF-1 Valkyrie Volume 1 & 2" books. I think some of these would be great start for non-licensed schemes. I wish we knew if Hasegawa schemes were even an option, because if they aren't due to licensing that would change this poll dramatically

    Top 5 most wanted VF-1 paint Scheme!

    I think this topic would benefit greatly if we could find scans from "Variable Fighter Master File: VF-1 Valkyrie Volume 1 & 2". There are quite a few nice schemes in those books, otherwise Hasegawa schemes will probably dominate the poll and we don't even know if those are an option due to licensing. Speaking of Hasegawa (and the need for pics).... There are actually 3 "blue Roses" schemes, so if it makes the poll there could be some confusion. http://www.macrossworld.com/macross/magazines/mg_1020015.jpg http://www.macrossworld.com/macross/magazines/mgpg31.jpg http://www.macrossworld.com/macross/magazines/no02v-mg-page5.jpg I'm going to risk it and hold off making my pick until I get home and take a look at the master file books.

    Whats your 1 wish for Arcadia

    I seem to recall the Sheryl figure being in a wedding dress, possibly referring to M&M being married?

    Whats your 1 wish for Arcadia

    Maybe the hint is..... Blue, Red and marriage? M&M reissue?
