  1. I’m giving it a shot and preordered.
  2. Oh and it’s not about a size comparison. It’s more about aesthetics and proportions.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Does anyone have a Yamato 1/48 VF-1J to pose for some side by side pics?
  6. 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.
  7. This real? https://m.intl.taobao.com/detail/detail.html?spm=a1z5f.7632060.0.0&id=555370296852

    Order in. Thanks!
  9. 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.
  10. There is a lot going on in the unlicensed Transformers market than just KOs. Third party companies are making better original figures than Hasbro/Takara. For example, takara doesn't makes a Masterpiece Jazz. Then a bunch of companies come all out with their "unofficial" version and it's great quality and Takara still won't make it. (Supposedly due to a license problem with Porsche). In that situation, 3rd party companies are filling the gap for the fans. It would be really interesting to see what 5 competing companies could come up competing for macross fans money. Macross is probably too small a market for that though. Heres another question, what happens if Arcadia does fold like Yamato and many people still searching for a particular type of figure can only get it on the KO market or some insane price. Even if they do support Arcadia (as I have bought double of everything they've released), isn't that a reasonable choice? Especially if it's good quality.

    Order closed. Congrats.
  13. Is there any special contract with Sony that would prevent a Macross game for the switch? I would buy Macross Delta or Macross 30 in a heartbeat.

    Finally got home from a long road trip. Box full of yeti stands was waiting on me. Unquestionably my favorite Valkyrie stand. I'll post pics later. Thanks Chaotic Yeti!

  18. Thanks for posting the the HLJ link. I tried to cancel my PO with NY and they wouldn't let me. I'm going to keep trying. Went ahead and ordered through HLJ. Definitely prefer them for customer service.
