  1. I only hope that one day Bandai will make a VF-1D, VT-1 and VE-1
  2. Firefox

    Hi-Metal R

    Looks like VF-27
  3. VF-1D variant is going to be really expensive very quickly. One can always build a similar 1/72 F-14 model using the same scheme though
  4. Hmm... HLJ probably bank on the Aussie buyers will buy from them to save the hassle of dealing import tax after 1st July this year. So far I think HLJ is the only company that collect GST for Australia government. For those sellers that do not do this, the goods will be taxed at custom and I suspect that the Australian custom would slap you an.expensive processing fee on top of the tax. Has any Aussies here know if one would be slapped with other charges on top of the tax?
  5. For Aussie fans that miss the pre-order, there's a local online retailer still accept pre-order. Haven't dealt with them before, so can't say if they can fulfil the pre-order. Not terrible expensive though. And only pay when release. https://www.ausani.com.au/product/dx-chogokin-the-super-dimension-fortress-macross-first-limited-edition-vf-1j-valkyrie-ichijyo-hikaru/
  6. Going through some old Diaclone catalogue and found something interesting. There were two different catalogue about the F-15 Robo (which become the Seekers in Transformers). As attached here, on the left seems to be very different from the final production (on the right) that we got. It seems that the ones on the left are prototypes or something. Starscream would have looked a bit different then
  7. Arcadia is already a history long time ago. They price themselves to oblivion. This one is really a must have,
  8. I'm just glad Michael Bay is out of the picture for this one. He did good on the first one but the subsequent series is just his revenge by mocking the die hard fans

    Bandai DX VF-31

    All the Aussie members here, do you foresee problem getting this (in fact, everything) overseas after 1st July this year? I wonder what sort of mess would it be. I don't think NY, HLJ and AmiAmi would give a damn about registering a tax account with OZ government. For all non-Aussie members, after 1 July, we will be tax 10% (GST) even if we bought $1.00 item from overseas. Unlike VAT in UK, which the tax is collected by the carrier, our brilliant government ask the overseas sellers to register a tax account with Aust government and collect the tax for them, as if the overseas sellers would give a damn about it.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    I don't think NY is going to deliver. Good chances that will cancel all orders and magically some stocks will appear with much higher price two three months later. The reason I said this is because they are so quick to refund you. I asked if there is chance the order to be fulfilled in the foreseeable future. If not, please consider cancelling the order. The next moment I received a refund notice.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    NY is quick to refund the moment you indicates you may want to cancel the order. NY will probably wait for most if not all pre-orders to be cancelled and then raise the price to sell the stock at hand.

    Bandai Sv-262 DX valk

    Got to check with Kawamori to see if it really transformable. Can't see it in any other form in the anime.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    NY said that they have not received all the stock allocated to them, hence the delay. Looks like I have to wait for a long time.
  14. Just got my MPM Barricade. Here's a quick comparison with HA Barricade in vehicle mode. HA Barricade on the left, MPM on the right. HA Barricade has actual interior and the underside of the HA look neater an tighter than MPM. Overall, the tampo printing and paint scheme on the MPM is sharper and look closer to the movie. It also spot more details silver painted rear mirrors, fog lights and exhaust. MPM is a tad smaller than the HA counterpart.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Has anyone got shipping notice from Nippon Yasan?
  16. You are right, it is the exact same mold with some improvement done on it. It has the exact same transformation. I have the DOTM Starscream and can vouch for it. Same goes with Blackout, it's not entirely new mold as some say, it just old mold with improvement.

    1/48 VF-19B

    I have to make the canopy from scratch.
  18. Kit Background I used the Hasegawa YF-19 as a base and VF-19 Master File as reference to modify it to a proper two seater. Unfortunately, the kit doesn't come with two pilot figures. Hence the empty second seat. Aircraft Background This aircraft belongs to one of the special unit that involves in clandestine operations. There is no visible squadron markings and not much background information regarding the aircraft or its pilots. Their operation records will be sealed for hundred of years.

    Hi-Metal R

    Hlj seems to have the cheapest EMS shipping for most time. Unfortunately Hlj doesn't seem to have enough hot items for sale. Hardly able to get anything from there now
  20. The good old Macross design. With the current onslaught of VF-25, 171, 31 and everything in between, I almost forgot all these good old Macross design.
