  1. Got one @AE. I was checking NY. They are adding 1 new item every 10 min starting with character items. Probably another 20 min or so, it will appear.
  2. Live now
  3. Got one from AmiAmi after 5 min per page loading of 4-5 pages. G-night - going to bed now
  4. Breaking Embargo rule get you in deep trouble - even in Japan. They should know that..
  5. Low viz now listed on BBTS. Also SSDC exclusive Stealth version price went up $40...
  6. total 100 issues over 4+ years. First Issue special price 299 yen (USD 3) , regular price probably around 1700 yen+ (USD 17+) total will be 1,700-2,000 USD + "shipping of each issue"...
  7. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Robotech-Macross-VF-1S-1-6-Cockpit-Kidslogic-NEW-1-of-400-SOLD-OUT/223653468294?hash=item3412c91886:g:9sAAAOSwMghdcnmy US $5,999.99 Really...?
  8. These guys did fine and all with hydraulics everywhere :P
  9. There is an idea! I tried to make it like a scene from live-action -
  10. Yeah I can see how the edges on the mouthpiece can bother some people who favors the smooth round curves in original. Thankfully I'm not a big fan of that particular area. So I'm good there.
  11. Quick photo review of VF-1S bust Mostly good Kinda wished the head lasers to have independent ball joint, but it's a solid piece It has the same neck pistons, but you can NOT do much this time. Al you can do is rotate it a little to sides (like 3 degrees) and the neck frame gets stuck. Just short sighted design. The X-mas headlight is annoying as last one. I'll probably never use it. Other details are mostly nice (except for the 'no step' decal. This would be the last one I get

    Hi-Metal R

    Haha.. Looks like you copied my design. But you copied my mistake as well. The launch arm direction should be reversed (or the signal should be on the other side) I realized after I printed on my case. That's one of the things I'm revising on my model ATM *Edit: I realized the left and right side launch arm would be different and direction would be mirrored, so both cases are possible.

    That was 2 years ago. I got tired of waiting and made my own.. Making of post here if you're interested
  14. I must be incredibly lucky to be able to grab one from amiami last night.. I was traveling and happened to be at Beijing airport for transfer flight with really bad free wifi. I had to surf via VPN to get to amiami site. Tough luck, I should say!
  15. I think these online sales guys are enjoying this....
  16. Got 1 from amiami. As long as I don't touch any other button....it seems go through..
  17. Quick unboxing and pics review Box contents Battery Box (AAA X3 - not included) front white plate is also a touch on/off switch Details With Lights on (not so annoying, but 2 small ones on left corner still blinks on/off) Back side detail. Head/Neck/Antenna articulation - I was actually impressed! They used ball joint and all 4 actuators are moving like endoskeleton in Terminator (Although this detail part is pure imagination of Kids logic side)
  18. Got the shipping notice. Will post some pics when I get them.
  19. Thanks for the comment. I don't remember the exact dimension of inside city block, but the first one might just work. the second one looks bigger/blockier. You still gotta figure out how to place it in the city. Have fun and good luck with your project!
  20. Did it come with VF-1S Head bust statue? or are they shipping it later?
  21. I don't remember other helmet parts. Only 2 Arm parts. I think we are mixing up 2 products here. I guess their original plan was to release 1/6 scale figure separately - And include the base figure in the cockpit as a first release bonus. Because they didn't include the Max action figure in his cockpit and the same case for Roy.
  22. Honestly it's the first time I see that photo, They've shown different images of various stages of prototyping. I'm not trying to defend them or anything, but the official photo when I placed my pre-order was this...
  23. It's one of those " Actual product maybe different" category. They also made some changes to the cockpit itself, too. Probably they will improve it and add extra items that's left out and sell as separate package. This one is nice, but does look like prototype. If there is demand, they will make it.
  24. the first items in the packaging picture is all there is. 1 body 1 helmet 3 hands. No base no space parts. I tried to see if I can swap the head from fixed pose version that came with the cockpit, but didn't work. The heads come out, but they have different ball size joint. Very strange why they didn't make it the same... Oh, BTW the body does seem the same size as fixed pose one. So you can probably put this new guy in the cockpit, but he will most likely pop-out due to pelvis joint and backpack.
