  1. Cheers for the answers! Didn't the 22 internalize the hand gunpods? he leg shields were deeper or something with the gun ports at the front. I may be remembering that wrong... From M3: "2 x Howard BP-14D multipurpose gun pods OR 2 x Hughes/GE GV-17L new standard internal cartridge-less gatling gun pods featuring retractable grip/stealth covers mounted in 8 x hard point weapon stations (mounted left/right internal ventral fuselage in Fighter mode or inside leg storage bay cover panels and/or manipulators in GERWALK/Battroid modes)"
  2. This may have never been mentioned anywhere, but do you think all the Fast Packs and weapons and such that get ejected and discarded by fighters have trackers on them for recovery? It would seem quite expensive to be losing them everytime the pilot ejects them into space and flies off to save The Girl.
  3. Y'all are making wish I had $400 to blow on this bad boy.
  4. The Mecha poll is more interesting if you just make it one of each ship type (IMO) 1 - YF-19 Alpha 1 2 - VF-1 Valkyrie 3 - YF-29 Durandel 4 - VF-19 Excalibur 5 - VF-31 Siegfried 6 - VF-25 Messiah 7 - SDF-1 Macross 8 - VB-6 Konig Monster 9 - HWR-00-MKII Monster 10 - YF-21 Bravo 1 11 - SV-262 Draken 12 - Macross Quarter 13 - VF-27 Lucifer 14 - VF-0 Phoenix 15 - Regult 16 - VF-22 Sturmvogel II 17 - Battle Frontier 18 - SLV-11 Daedalus 19 - VF-4 Lightning III 20 - MBR-04-MKVI Tomahawk 21 - VF-171 Nightmare 22 - VF-11 MAXL 23 - Glaug 24 - Macross Quarter 25 - Ghost X9 26 - Queadluun Rau 27 - Battle 7 28 - VB-6 Konig Monster *Interesting that while the 11 MAXL is there, the regular Thunderbolt, in either B or C type, is not. *While on the show popularity poll, Macross Plus ranks low but the YF-19 is the most popular fighter. *While Macross 7 is one of the most popular shows, the 11 and 17 don't appear at all, but Battle 7 just makes the cut. *The VF-0 is the sole representative of Macross Zero. * 3 of the 4 versions of the Monster appear. *The 21 is WAY lower than the 19. Fun list
  5. Ive done a lot of that recently. Im down to just the stuff I want to keep unfortunately
  6. This looks gorgeous. But yeah I cant justify the price sadly.
  7. Im not 100% sure I agree with that. My read on Mirage was that she was an excellent pilot, but not as good as many others because of the pressure she was under from herself and others because of her name and heritage. Messer told her she was too 'By the book" or some such I think. I think by the end of the series we have seen a Mirage who has loosened up a lot and learned to stand on her own feet and for who she is. I wouldn't be surprised to learn she went on to great things. Maybe she will never be as good as her Grandparents, but I think she would be an excellent pilot in her own right.
  8. inflatable was meant to be Unflyable. Apparently my phone doesn't like that phrase. im unclear what those 2 control systems you mentioned are? That said i get the idea; little gain for much loss. understood. Also, I suppose the 29 DOES fly into Atmo with its super packs on... but then it has minor additions that are tightly conformed to the aerodynamics of the plane already.
  9. Is there any reason a 25 or 31 couldn’t fly in Atmo with their Fast Packs, minus the wing packs? The control surfaces would still be free, and while there would be extra drag, it wouldn’t be unflyable would it?

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Has everyone listened to the latest Macross Speakerpod, and what was revealed therein???

    Bandai DX VF-31

    That's a screenshot from the trailer. The packs over the shoulders; does that look like the wing packs to anyone else? At first I thought maybe it was the rear pack folded into halves, but now I think its the rear wings up horizontally somehow?

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Well that Kai is gonna be a pain in the ass to get. Hoping I can swing it, coz i loves me that plane. The good news is, this makes me more confident about the line. I was worried we wouldn't see the rest, since we hadn't any announcements past the Messer armor. This gives me a little more hope.
  13. So let's talk paint. By the time of macross Delta, I think the Valks are using a kind of SMart Paint on their fighters. In Episode 7, right at the start as Delta are going onto their mission on the cat planet, The Valks (And Walkures carrier ship) all black shift to this stealth camo. Do we have any idea if this is actually a thing? I ask because suddenly custom colors on a fighter seem like they'd be relatively easy to do. You just program the scheme and the planes smart paint system changes it for you. Will I finally stump Seto with a questyion about a Valkyries PAINT?! Tune in to find out!
  14. Me too, but I find you can swap 2 of them over if that happens and it goes on easier. Anyway I really am considering gluing them.
  15. The drakens will stay on without the clear pieces, but over time it will droop. But you can do it.
  16. With the drone wings folded, maybe?
  17. Ill tell u one cool thing: Did u guys know the little silver parts at the front of the missile pods slide forward? I assume thats so if you just want to fire a few missiles but not pop the hatches all the way, you can fire them forwards and out those ports. If thats not true, thats my head cannon anyway
  18. the wing definitely droops a bit without the clear piece. It doesnt bother me to much, I think it a better solution than something like the terrible inner wing bars on the old Yamato 51's.
  19. I got mine, and i dig the set. The Sword and Shield add a surprising amount to the toy, and definitely makes it worth keeping in Battroid. The missile pods basically complete the plane, Im seriously considering gluing them into place. The Drakens are nice solo pieces. Look cool on their own, look cool with the plane overall. I'm sorry people aren't liking them, but I'm digging it. Hell getting it out even made me get better at transforming the plane back to fighter again
  20. I grabbed a second one, and as before the left wing booster wont lock into place. Did anyone ever come up with a solution for that?
  21. Whats the heat transfer like from the exhuast on a Valk? I ask because in Battroid and Gerwalk, we have seen instances of biological creatures very close to the exhausts and never suffer burns, so I wondered if there was an artifact of the overtechnology process that caused this? Or am i just thinking about it way to much?
