  1. The Miria 1J I bought during the recent sales arrived this week. Do... do I really need more than one of these?
  2. BBTS has them for preorder. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/69065 http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/69075
  3. Well thanks a lot, jerks! I Googled "Calibre Wings F-14" and saw a bunch of the Macross VF-1 paint schemes available for preorder and ordered them all. I know it's under the dreaded "R" label and I'm loath to purchase anything from them, but they are still Hikaru, Roy, Max, and Miria's colors...
  4. Bandai DX VF-31

    Well now I can't unsee it! I guess it's like the weird canopy tint. Giving us a "perfect" VF-31 would upset something in the Bandai universe, so they have to intentionally introduce a few flaws to maintain balance in the Newtype Force or something.
  5. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    You're talking about the little flap beneath the thrusters? Sorry I don't have anything like that that. It's just a simple criss-cross pattern isn't it? I'm sure an enterprising individual here can whip a printable one up.
  6. Bandai DX VF-31

    My least favorite 31 paint scheme, but I do like the S type head unit. Also glad now that it looks like they'll actually finish Delta squadron. I wouldn't worry too much if you miss the initial preorder. All the 31s have been readily available after release and I can't imagine Arad being that much more popular than Hayate or Mirage or Messer.
  7. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    It's less noticeable once you've coated it and all. I thought of stripping some of the black off with a Q tip and some turpenoid, but I'd probably end up botching it up and making it much worse.
  8. Arcadia 1/60 VF-1J 35th Anniversary

    Without all the text, it's actually alright looking. Probably the best anniversary scheme IMO, which really isn't saying much. Probably won't get one, unless it's on sale.
  9. Nice scores! The 1701-A is easily one of the best releases from Eaglemoss. Spoiler alert for ST:Discovery.
  10. 1/48+fp's, 1/60+fp's, 1/72, 1/2k, 1/3k,1/100 and now 1/144

    Been taking all my white valks out of their boxes with the reports of yellowing lately. The only decent Yeti solution I could come up with using what I had at hand for the RVF-171, what with the huge ventral fin and wonky stand adapter. Hopefully the addition of armor packs won't mess this up.
  11. Macross figures

    It's going to be a game prize figure, so I wouldn't expect particularly high quality. I wonder if they'll give us different molds for everyone or just use the same body with different heads? It'd be funny and disappointing to see Roy and Hikaru the exact same height.
  12. Bandai DX VF-31

    You can live with one lung and one kidney. You don't need your spleen or gallbladder. And you can remove a substantial part of your liver and it'll grow back. Hoping the new armor packs will actually let you stow the pod underneath like in the screenshots so Arad's insignia is still fully visible in battroid.
  13. People on the internet get quite upset when you shatter their echo chamber by not falling in line with their opinions. Quite amusing. I enjoy bashing Delta because it's a f***ing terrible show. I'll be in Tokyo in the the spring so I'll catch the movie if it's still playing. I get the feeling that a B- is probably much too generous.
  14. Hi-Metal R

    Opened up my VE-1. Surprisingly, I like it a lot more than the regular HMR VF-1 releases. The extra packs really hide the ugly HMR fighter mode (I said the same thing way back when we got Hikaru's Strike 1S) and makes it look so much better. And, strangely enough, the tabs actually hold the legs in place in fighter mode, something that was a real problem on my past HMRs. It's a step down from the Yamato VE-1, but if you missed out on that, this one is fine. Why, the VE-1 is positively adequate. Adequatulent, even! Is the radome supposed to sit that high? It looks weird like that. It's not perfect though. It has a crooked nose, like it got broken in a bar fight and didn't heal right. That UN Spacy kite is comically large; I measured it and it's even bigger than the 1/60 version. My copy also has a nasty paint splash on the cockpit UN Spacy kite. Love that HMR quality! With its big brother.
  15. Hmmm that sounds like a great idea! All that Macross stuff suddenly appearing on HLJ... My wallet would be a lot lighter tonight if I didn't already have all that stuff. Or put another way, my wallet was already made lighter by those things.
  16. Geez, did the MII UN Spacy source their heat shields from discarded Soviet spacecraft?
  17. Bandai DX VF-31

    LOL! True enough.
  18. Hi-Metal R

    And Bandai is milking an 8 year old mold with their HMR VF-1. Did you guys think that crap was brand new? I consider the HMR VFs "overpriced" as well. *chuckle* They cost as much as 1/60 toys from 10 years ago but are vastly inferior in quality. We are living in the past, right? A premium finish VE-1 might be interesting, but I'm not sure I like it enough to drop that kind of money on it. Not being a hero unit also hurts its chances of that happening.
  19. Bandai DX VF-31

    All valkyries get very little screen time in Delta. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm expecting about 12 seconds of valkyrie action and 90 minutes of people talking about "tainting the wind" or some BS.
  20. My Very Own Premium Finish Valkyries

    Looks fantastic! If anything, I'd say you have too few decals on the wings, at least going by the Yamato and Hasegawa manuals. I guess the Master File has a more scant arrangement? The skulls on the decal sheet are all off center on mine, so I just used the stickers as well. They have no excess around the edges and fill up the entire circle area on the fast packs so you won't even be able to tell they're stickers once you clear coat it. Shame that the 3rd party decals have so many mistakes and omissions. Time to scrounge more Hasegawa decals sheets I guess. Now you just have to transplant a rainbow tinted canopy from an older valk and yours will be perfect!
  21. So? If you scale a VF-31 with yourself, you realize the arms are thicker than yours. They're still spindly looking. I don't like the J because it's an all around ugly ship. Also, Enterprise-J just sounds so corny. Like movie sequels that drop the numbers after enough sequels, you can drop the lettering.
  22. Bandai Sv-262 DX valk

    Nothing says camouflage like bright purple! Obviously sell, sell, sell stuff. It's a damn shame they can't tell an interesting story and sell merchandise. It's not as if the two are mutually exclusive.
  23. The messed up refit Enterprise (wrong color, missing surface detail) and the much improved A.
  24. It's consistent with the details (or lack of) from all the Enterprise Phase 2 images I've seen, i.e. lack of aztec mottling, more like the 1960s Enterprise. Now the refit Enterprise they released awhile back was also missing surface details, and that I would consider a mistake, which they corrected on the A release.
