  1. Oh God my wallet screamed... I'm gonna keep watching. Honestly I'm more interested in a VF-22 in Max colors, but I don't know if they'll do that or not. Battroid is a massive improvement. I know I'm not as nitpicky as some collectors here but I can't see what is so troubling about the fighter so far. To me it looks amazing. Likely future prototypes will get better too. I don't know if I can afford this... Maybe I should consider some sales...
  2. Short answer, yes and a lot of it involves what happens in the VF-X games. Mostly the 2nd one, but it seems the issues had been building for a while. Basically they needed to decentralize to avoid one group having all the power (though Earth still ends up with more in the end). For the long version of the answer, see Seto below. (this is what they call genre savvy lol)
  3. I mean, YF-21 and VF-22 don't have engines in the legs, so that one has happened already.
  4. Yeah I was paraphrasing, though I certainly remember at saying that lol. I'm also a bit bad at reconstructing sentences from what I only heard and didn't read, but 'baka' isn't hard to forget heh.
  5. What Seto is saying is coming directly from said voice actor, as Seto and I were both at the panel at SDCon last weekend where Takumi Yamazaki was speaking. He literally couched his view of Isamu's character and how he went about playing him as essentially, "He's a rather silly person, and kind of an idiot." This is not to say he doesn't like Isamu a lot, and he certainly enjoys running the classic "Yahoo!" catchphrase to a crowd. He also said that Isamu's only line in Wings of Goodbye was more or less written by him as the script just had a strange sound effect in it instead. It sounds like Kawamori didn't need much convincing despite doing two takes. My note earlier that Takumi agrees that Isamu's true love is his plane came from a bit of a joke he said in the same panel, heh.
  6. Well the 24 testing was when he was in NUNS Reserve. He could have been doing SMS as the day job by then and and took a sabbatical to do the flight testing (it would need more than a weekend or annual tour, so he'd be given special orders for duty and be temporarily active for longer). As the YF-24 then was being tested for development for NUNS, there is no way he could get a copy (much less one that isn't de-rated), plus... NUNS knows him, and they know that'd a bad idea all around. As for the VF-19 Advanced... well we know that story already, and it starts with attempted lawbreaking, lol. Fact is the 19 is Isamu's true love (his VA agrees, lol) so no matter how fun the YF-24 is, it'll never be his plane, even if his 19 is a monkey model now (as it only could be). He could get a monkey model version of the VF-24 or any other of the offshoots (and he does get a YF-29 in Macross 30, though he doesn't keep it since that was his time displaced self), but his heart will always be to the lady he met on Eden... Oh, and Myung maybe too, if he was lucky.
  7. From the depths of space (and a recent SDCon panel): "YAHOO!!"
  8. The 29 is so specifically designed to fight Vajra it is pretty far from Anti-VF. That said because it is so powerful due to approximating the legendary abilities of the YF/VF -24 it certainly can handle a fight, as Rod proved in his YF-29B in Macross 30, only really losing to the YF-30 which only had an edge really due to the Fold Dimensional Resonance system. As for the VF-24, as usual it is all speculation but the design for the YF-24 indicated it was more of an anti-ship platform with such gems as using fold boosters to fold into Zentradi lines (or inside big ships) unload hell and fold out before joining the unfortunate giants in firey death. This kind of fighting isn't as useful against another VF but since it is so speced out, it can probably manage.
  9. Yeah but it's seen they break easily and I think Windermere was relying on Epsilon for support and maintenance a bit so they might not be able to use them long term. They do still have a protoculture ship... But that's the best thing they have...
  10. He does the Lego thing with all of them early on. You can find lots of pictures of him with VF in Lego form. The man is truly an engineer lol. I get a lot of VF-14 vibes actually. Also hard to tell if it is manned, but it probably is. Interested to see more.
  11. Even so, I think Mylene despite her teenage confusion had a better future with Gamlin. That said, they have never revealed who she ends up with if anyone. It's not Basara though, cause he could care less.
  12. The YF-30 does have a specific mission and target... To test the fold dimensional resonance system. It really shouldn't even be a YF prototype cause they don't plan to mass produce it, but SMS lied about it to keep the specs secret. I wonder if they had to pay for that heh. By now federal NUNS probably have all that data anyway. In any case there is no expectation of a fighter based directly on the 30 for actual mission use cause it was never supposed to be that. NUNS could make a new prototype based on it for that if they wanted later to add to the already monster specs of their VF-24 (which probably doesn't even have a fold wave system). Just imagine the colossus of a full spec VF with a functioning FDR.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Hmm.. I much prefer the Supers to the gawdy armored pack the 31 got, but maybe.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Not really surprising on the last part, I just figured I'd ask. It does seem a weird oversight on the 31A but it was a special I suppose.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    I know this is a bit old news with the focus on the recent Chuck release and armored packs coming up apparently but I haven't kept up on this thread so two questions: Did the VF-31A ever get super parts and regardless how difficult would it be to get 31F super parts now outside of a private sale (which I may look into)? Same question if the 31A has any I suppose.
