  1. From the album: My Macross Collection

    A "Holy Grail" question finally achieved! GBP-1S set fitted up to a Bandai reissue VF-1J. Seems to fit fine.

    Takatoku VF-1S

    From the album: My Macross Collection

    Something of a 'holy grail' piece for me. Worn box and a bit aged, missing the missiles. But used decals perfect for scanning, clean body in excellent shape, and all paperwork. Just a little work needed.

  4. So, how does this look as a possibility? Anyone interested in a custom head based on this, cast in resin? This is just a very basic dryfit on a Bandai reissue DYRL 1/55 VF-1A. The head actually comes from this plastic SD-series kit: Thoughts, anyone? While it's SD, I think it has the style of interpretation seen in the other superchunk 1/55 heads. It would look right at home on those big square shoulders...

    SD Valk Head Dryfit 1

    From the album: Custom DYRL 1A 1/55 Head Project

    A closer shot of the dryfit of Bandai SD Super Max VF-1A SD kit's head to reissue Hikaru Bandai 1/55 DYRL VF-1A (which I obtained minus its original head, fitted with an old Jetfire head instead), to check scale & style. Looks in-scale, and the big SD-style eye doesn't look out of place on the big, blocky 1/55 body design.

  8. Has anyone here used Monster Kolor spray paints on Takatoku/Bandai Macross toys? I've got a Takatou 1/3000 SDF Macross that's got badly-yellowed white parts, and blue parts that are going a bit aqua. I'm strongly considering just taking it apart and repainting it at this point. (I have a set of repro decals for it, so that issue is covered.) Of course there's always issues with paint wear on moving parts, engineering tolerance issues when paint is introduced on non-painted mechanisms, etc, etc. - I do have those concerns clearly in mind. My questions involve how well MK spray white (or blue) works - how thick it tends to be, how opaque at light coats, etc? So, does anyone have any direct experience using MK paints on the classic Macross transforming toys, or other similar transforming toys made from rigid ABS vs today's more pliant plastics?
  9. I have a question for all you proud Macross parents out there. I have a son who will be turning 3 in a couple of months, and I have a Bandai Re-release Roy that I won't be displaying any time soon. What would be the earliest/most appropriate age to let my son have claim the 1/55 Chunky-Monkey as his own? I'm pretty sure that, if I give it to him now, the boy will be constantly ask ME to transform it, saying, "Robot? Robot?" and then, "Plane? Plane?" (And yes, I know I'll have to correct him: "No, not robot. BATTROID" ). But I'm almost certain that if I give it to him now, that Chunky-Monkey is gonna suffer some significant damage at his hands (missing arm, lost heatshield, broken parts, etc.). Any advice or personal anecdotes you all can share?
