  1. Based on what I can tell of the pics/description, this doesn’t have a real LCD cockpit screen like the 1/6 version. That sound right to you guys?
  2. Isn’t that a Yamato/Arcadia stand?
  3. That’s an interesting tail design on the E-2D. Wonder if it’s JASDF’s or VAW-125 is playing around with a new scheme.
  4. Kind of reminds me of the HK 433 https://www.heckler-koch.com/en/products/military/assault-rifles/hk433/hk433/overview.html
  5. @jeniusyou do great work and provide a great service to all of us here. I can’t wait to see the future Sentinel Legioss review!
  6. 1) I didn’t see anything misspelled or missing punctuation. 2) force choke and Steve Harrington...this is why I read your reviews 3) This section: “As mentioned previously, this toy is very similar to a Bandai SHFiguart figure but that line hasn’t done as well for Bandai so it will be interesting to see if KitzConcept can pick up more momentum than Bandai has been able to.” Do you mean Macross SHF? Which I think you do. I just bring it up because I thought SHF Marvel/Star Wars/Etc. stuff does pretty well. Seems like some stuff sells out pretty quickly. 4) Overall, and as usual, a very good review. I would say I think you might be just a little harsh though. We’ve never had any decent Robotech figures (looking at you Matchbox and Toynami) and I think Rick was pretty cool. It would be huge and unrealistic, but a transformable 1/12 VF-1J for him to fly would be pretty cool. Plus, I think the figures do pair well with Sentinels stuff. Of course it’s your opinion and review so this is just my thoughts. I really enjoyed it. Nice job.
  7. Apparently that was the excuse given from the upper brass to remove it immediately. ‘‘Twas a shame.
  8. Not sure if this ever got shared. Thought you guys might enjoy. These are real. Unfortunately, after they painted the dome like this, the higher ups got mad because “they didn’t get permission from Marvel” so they had to remove it. They did a great job. I think Marvel would have supported them. This was from 2016.
  9. It was a pleasure @Rogueload you made it easy!

    Macross figures

    I feel like my whole life has been a lie now. I thought I grew up watching a love triangle...only to now release it was a love rhombus. Mind blown.
  11. I’m pretty sure this was never released.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Yeah there was no negotiating with them. And I really like BiJ. I had great luck with them. Until now. Sometimes I wonder if they (or any store) would just ask for more shipping money because they can. I’m not trying to be a conspiracy nut here, but there is nothing to stop them from doing this for any number of reasons. I just hate the lack of transparency. Just be up front. You know it’s crazy, but at least you can see Nippon Yassons shenigans up front if you order from them (cough...cough... current DX VF-1S price...).

    Bandai DX VF-31

    I did email Big in Japan and they told me that when I paid 5200 yen originally that was just an estimate at that I am required to pay them the additional 3100 yen because the package was bigger. I told them 8300 yen was excessive and to please cancel my order. Nope. Not allowed. Pay or we get to keep your money. I told them that this was unreasonable and I would take store credit. Nope. Not allowed. I said, “hey, I’m a loyal customer and this is going to bridge with me.” We don’t care. So I paid and I won’t place any future orders with them. And I was always a big fan.

    Follow up, it was EMS and only ONE. 8300 for one.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    I got my notification for shipping for the VF-31S armor from Big in Japan. I had to pay an additional 3100 yen because the shipping estimate was not enough (5200 spent originally). That brought the total to 8300 yen for shipping. That seems excessive to me and just wanted to see if anyone else had a similar situation or are all the companies doing this and the box is just huge.
  17. Thanks man! You make it very easy. Much appreciated.
