    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    What are the odds they release Roy's 1S next? I hope with TV flight suit....

    They almost have late TV hikaru on the cover there, they just need the TV style arm units.

    Variable Fighter Master File VF-1 Battroid Valkyrie http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOBK-2244066 I'll get one, but dang it man, I was hoping for VF-11 thunderbolt or VF-3000 crusader.

    True, but I guess I should have specified: I was mainly thinking of the vast majority of VF-31As that would be produced during the type's lifetime: pure-military machines used by NUNS (or so I hope). In such a fleet, located far away from the divas, the drone charger would be dead weight. (also, having looked at Delta's mecha online the whole time, but being unable to watch the series until last fall, I was pretty surprised to see that they used the dang thing a grand total of one time, IIRC. Thanks for the info on the modeling book, i'll have to get that one. That VF-31A with sensor / missile pod half is a thing of beauty.

    Yeah, it's a shame Satellite never modeled any underwing ordnance for the 25, which is really odd because they did model ordnance for the 117 in episode 1. I really love the PACSWS-1G that we see in M30 and Master File, thing's like an AIM-54 Phoenix on mega-steroids.

    Super Macross Mecha Fun Time Discussion Thread!

    Building on the above, I'd like to formally propose a conclusion of mine here that I've been thinking about for a while: The episode 1 loadout of Henry Gilliam, and Satellite's "non-valk accuracy" in general. I was reading a thread on here a while ago, discussing the VF-31A's useless drone charger that is featured on both the Bandai DX and Satellite's in-show model. Someone made the excellent point that Satellite was not 'valk-accurate' in this case, as why the hell would the VF-31A carry the dead weight of a drone charger. I don't have the VF-31 Master file but I believe someone pointed out that in the 31 MF or some other non-show notes, the 31A has a micromissile pod instead of a drone charger for that half of the weapons pod. How does this pertain to VF-25 hardpoints? Glad you asked; I can prove that Gilliam's loadout for Frontier episode 1 actually looked like this, despite Satellite's show model: Site: http://sp.macross.jp/modelers/?id=113 Glad I found this modeler, a picture's worth a thousand words after all. In MF episode 1, Gilliam jettisons his super pack to pursue the red soldier Vajra into Island one (as he will need to fly in-atmosphere) and is visually carrying nothing but his gunpod. However, when he first attacks the vajra, he clearly does so with missiles that resemble the AMM-101. See Gilliam_missile.jpg. VF-25's don't carry internal missile ordnance, therefore Gilliam must have carried AMM-101s on his outer hardpoints and retained them when he Jett'd his super packs. As a side note, I totally intend on building this loadout once I can get my hands on a hasegawa super VF-25 (already have the normal hasegawa 25 with the 18 AMM-101s.)

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    What on earth is that grey fighter with the dorsal intakes on the left?? Dorsal intakes sound like a bad idea for a dogfighter, angle of attack and all that....

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Well. I thought I had heard that this one was general release, so i spaced out and didn't order right away. Came on here and kind of panicked, but my wife is such an awesome babe, she found one just now on Yodobashi (I usually use Rakuten but they're sold out) https://www.yodobashi.com/product/100000001003879628/ Sorry for those that don't live in Japan.
  9. Love the langley stripe btw!
  10. Anyone ordered from experten before? If one has a japanese address, do you just contact them in Nihongo?
  11. Hot damn, look at this thing! https://twitter.com/expertenannex/status/942119433681563
  12. Thirded! In addition to these, it's a proper two-seater and it has elbow rockets for badass punches! Love the 3000 so much. Looks like Experten has put up some test shot photos? https://twitter.com/expertenannex

    MACROSS 30: Hints & Tips

    That's what I'm afraid of... there's no more story left besides the orange 'final mission' option in the Geifon menu. At least, I think, I can't remember if you can explore the world after you clear havamal's fortress but before you go after the final boss. Is this game really structured so that you can't get these things on new game plus???

    MACROSS 30: Hints & Tips

    OK, really confused here... Anyone know how to get the VF-25 super parts? The FAQ says they're at Urthur Race 2, but when I visit Urthur there are no Races at all! I'm in a new game plus on hard mode, and I just got past the Quarter / Sharon apple fight. Still no races. Also, I need the VF-19S, but Cleef town's hunter guild only has two quests available, both of which I completed... "5000G bounty" and "orkos operation". Does anyone know how getting quests to post works??

    Fantastic job, i like how you placed the tailhook pretty close to where i always thought it should go: centerline extending from the backpack.
