  1. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Dang it, missed the -29, something I’d like to add to my collection, either a renewal Vf-25 or a YF-29. Anyway, HLJ haul today! It’s a new year, which means a new super sentai team (well, two this year), and I’m a fan of the mecha/gimmick again. Plus a Robot Damashii that I missed out on the first time around.

    As soon as I saw the announcement, I knew I had to get the Lego Ship in a Bottle. It was just a wonderful sort of idea for a set, I couldn’t help myself.
  3. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I had forgotten the VF-22 had missile launchers in there. It's crazy how packed with stuff most variable fighters' legs are, like how the VF-31 has the engines, joint mechanisms, landing gear mechanics, missile launchers, and drone bays. Back to the VF-22, I had always wondered how the missile launcher mechanism manages to wrap around both sides of the gunpod's muzzle.

    YF-21 the gunpods are mounted externally and are exposed. VF-22 gunpods are mounted in the same spot, but have a stealth housing for them.
  5. Bandai DX VF-31

    VF-31C super parts ordered!
  6. BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    If it does come with all those goodies and a stand, I probably won't be able to resist, even with being satisfied with my Arcadia.

    New Valk day! (Yesterday anyway) Couldn’t resist the revo Eva unit 6, kinda a sucker for a mecha wielding a polearm, a weapon that should see a lot more use. Last HLJ shipment until March.
  8. Hi-Metal R

    No tilt, just a couple of pegs to rotate on.
  9. Hi-Metal R

    My VF-2SS arrived today, need more time to fiddle with it. One minor issue, the left shoulder armor doesn’t appear to have been properly glued together. It was just loose in the tray under the battroid.

    It doesn’t look like it can store the gunpod at all. I’d guess it comes with one gunpod and a swappable effect part to show the gunpod being ejected from the arm armor.
  11. Bandai DX VF-31

    Minor point of clarification: The shields don’t rotate during transformation, the pointy end stays toward the hands. This is consistent with the boxart, instructions, and in the model kits. Trying to find a good screenshot from the series. https://imgur.com/a/lTGeq Wasn’t letting me upload directly, so here’s an imgur link.

    Most recent HLJ haul, just before the VF-2SS next week Ian.
  13. Bandai DX VF-31

    Just ordered my Kairos. I love the Siegfrieds, but this one is even sleeker looking, and the utilitarian color sceme gives it much more gravitas as credible military hardware.

    Another HLJ haul. Robot Damashii TRI figures aren’t quite as possible as the usual line, but are more than adequate, for about half the price. ZZ ver Ka looks simply amazing, especially compared to the original, Frame Arms just ‘cuz it looks cool.

    More stuff! Several firsts in this box! My first HMR VF-1! First Sentai brick! First non-Zoid Koto kit!
