  1. Long, long time watcher...first time commenter...huge fan. Watermark is a great idea and I’m ok with its location. However, I’m not a fan of how everyone has to have some long custom intro on YouTube. I just skip over them every time and it’s annoying. I long for the days when Youtube didn’t have that. The ones I don’t are just a quick logo and maybe on their 2 seconds (ex. Bens collectibles logo) and then he goes straight into his reviews. Yours isn’t bad, but it is unnecessary and I prefer your straight to business greeting and review. I’m probably not articulating this as well as I could, but some of you guys probably know what I’m talking about. I hate it when guys have to talk for 1-3 minutes about nothing and then say “without further delay let’s get to the review.” You never do that, but intros drag it out even longer and I’m just fast forwarding most of the time. BTW, I’m also fine with a YouTube channel owner giving me an update on themselves or future plans for their channel separate. It just doesn’t need to be tied to a review. Especially in something niche like this community when folks go back years to watch and learn something about a toy they just finally got. That’s my two cents. You are doing a fantastic job. You basically are the only reviewer/English speaking Macross, Robotech, Mospeada reviewer I’ve seen and have a loyal following. You don’t need to change unless it is something you want to do.

    I think the cockpit wasn’t glued correctly. It was the first time I transformed it and it just fell off.

    Well I opened my Christmas present Evolution Toys Legioss figure. Cockpit fell off as well one of the hands were broken. I have Toynami, Aoshima, and CM and while there were a lot of problems with them, I think this is the worst Mospeada figure I have ever seen. The tabs are terrible and it feels super cheap. Yes, I know some of you will disagree and remind me of how terrible the others could be, but for 300 dollars cost this is garbage. It definitely had potential and maybe Evolution Toys can make it right, but mine is heading back to HLJ.

    I’m giving it a shot and preordered.

    Oh and it’s not about a size comparison. It’s more about aesthetics and proportions.

    The 1/48 does look a little bit different compared to the 1/60. I have both just not the Hikaru VF-1J. However, even the photo comparison between the 1/60 and Bandai is informative to me. Thanks for posting.

    I thought someone could photo shop a Yamato 1/48 VF-1J posed like the photos released of the Bandai version for a side by side compare and contrast. I thought it might highlight detail differences.

    Does anyone have a Yamato 1/48 VF-1J to pose for some side by side pics?
  9. Whats next for Arcadia?

    Did Arcadia or Yamato make a 1/60 Regult like that? I don’t remember, but I could be wrong. If they did it’s a KO. It could also be something stolen/leaked from Arcadia. Or third party stuff may finally be coming to the Macross community.

    This real? https://m.intl.taobao.com/detail/detail.html?spm=a1z5f.7632060.0.0&id=555370296852

    Done! Hope it’s good.

    I agree completely. It seems to me some folks in this community haven't seen what unlicensed companies are able to do these days. The improvements made in Chinese reverse engineering/manufacturing just the last year made an impression on me. I think some folks are remembering a bad KO MP-10 or cheap 1/55 copy KO and that's what they have in their mind for what a Yamato/Arcadia 1/60 v2 KO will be. It very well could. But I've also been blown away by companies ability to make figures with better quality, better paint, and even improve on flaws from the original design. Some original toys having much more complexity of a VF-1 v2. I support Arcadia. I supported Yamato before that. I have everything purchased from Bandai or on pre-order. We all spend a small fortune collecting these. But a Chinese company can and probably will make this figure, with a great paint job, with great/equal quality, include more accessories, and sell it to you for probably a hundred bucks to include shipping. If that does happen, I'm just saying I understand why someone wouldn't want to buy a M and M set for 200 vice 1200. I guess that's another capitalism point you were trying to make early Jenius.
