Macross Frontier Figures

Has anyone ordered from hobby fan before?

I "have". I'm not particularly pleased with them since I pre-ordered Alter's 1/6 KOS-MOS V4 Swimsuit Edition back in early September last year. The Hobby Fan website stated that it will arrive in their store in February 2009... then March, then April, then May...

I ended up canceling my order with Hobby Fan when I found out HLJ has the same figure in stock and on sale. I saved myself $30 right there.

It's only one time, but I don't think I'll buy from them again anytime soon... Their site is very nice though.

Though, if they say they have the item is in-stock, you'll most likely get it. But if you're ordering an item that is in high demand or are pre-ordering, I say look somewhere else.

Ps. I just checked their site and the same figure is in stock... hah... <_<

anime-export has it cheaper than hobby-fan and ive done countless transactions with them and happy everytime.. its only 6120 yen plus shipping and their shipping prices are pretty cheap.. With the current exchange rate you should spend a cheaper amount than hobby fan shipped to your pad.. good luck!

Got mine on pre-order. Now all I need is a good Ranka, and my Klan, Sheryl, Ranka trio will be complete. :D

Well these are 12" figures (like those 12" Cool Girl series by Takara, I think CG still look better than Megahouse)

It's like the Minmay doll that Yamato released, ie you can change cloth for them and do whatever pose you please :p

Either way I am still sticking with 1/8 figure, awesome outfit and much cheaper

You didn't actually believe they'll stop at just 2 or 3 figures right? If you've been in this anime hobby long enough, you'll know that figure releases are just the tip of the merchandising business. BTW, the anime is nothing more than just a very well-produced 13 hour advertisement to get people to buy the merchandise.

^_^

Anyway, definitely getting the Nyan Nyan Ranka Lee. Goes well with my other 'maido' theme anime figures. ^_^

Hopefully, this time around, she comes with the anime correct green hair. The Monster Ranka Lee has yellow hair, unless one managed to snag a Japan only limited-release magazine tied-in green hair version. <_<

Sheryl action figure product and order page:

http://www.megatreshop.jp/products/sheryl/index.html

First order 700 unit limit. I think they say they will release more depends on popularity.

I found this message with an e-mail link for overseas buyers to inquire.

http://www.megahouse.co.jp/mail/

The actual e-mail address

oversea@megahouse.co.jp

What's the price that's listed? Is the "16,000" the price as in 16000 yen? Ouch! :blink: Why o' why did they not make them a smaller scale like 6" perhaps. Then, they would probably be a bit cheaper. :(

That Sheryl figure looks really nice. I'm also liking the Ranka bikini figure as well.

60 dollar range for the Sheryl. Damn, that almost seals it. The new Ranka's are looking quite nice. Seems the Nyan-Nyan one is based off the launch poster. Hopefully her face will look better than the source (and they make the matching Minmay).

This isn't milking jack compared to some characters. We've got a ways to go. I'd like to see a Grace and Cathy.

Looks like Ranka still has the edge in cutsey keychains. One of the reasons i already have one.

I will pass on the Sheryl doll. It's taken long enough for my family to accept my VF collecting. If I satrting collecting girlie dolls, they would probably disown me.

Ach...what can I say? I always wanted a poseable Sheryl doll... but this one just isn't up to crop....or speed...or whatever... doesn't look as good as it should. I think it has something to do with the bland expression on her face. Ranka looks even worse.

But I DO appreciate the effort.

That Ranka puts Sheryl at a MAJOR MAJOR advantage ....

And what's with the stars? Why? That makes no sense :(

Keeping bra on.

I just browsed the foobaraz site and found out reviews of Klan Klang and Sheryl premium prize figures from Banpresto. I'm not a big fan of figures/dolls and etc. but would love to have those two on my shelf. If I will be lucky enough and have some extra cash to spend on m&a goodies, then maybe I will buy Klan Klang in the upcoming months, ofc if I find her on ebay or other e-shops.

Eh, other anime series have a lot of nice figures and from what I see on the hlj/hobbysearch Macross F don't have to many of them...

Well, she's still a 16 year-old teen. I think that means she's under legal age in most parts of the world, except Japan and France. So think of the stars as nipple tape. ^_^

Anyway, it's not like she's a Pamela anyway. For those who like their a-minus cup lolis nekkid, there's always the recently released Wave succubus and the Max Factory Polo vampire girl. Or one can google up Zhang Ziyi's (leading lady of Memoirs of a Geisha) nekkid beach pictures with her boyfriend kissing her ass. :lol:

Who says we Chinese are conservative? Anyway, if Indians and Chinese are really that conservative, how the hell did they become the 2 most populous nations in the world? Cloning? :lol:

Sorry, but I'm just not into flat chested women. :)

WHOA! Now's that's a Woman. Definitely a MUST BUY figure, if they ever release a good one. Maybe Megahouse can do a core retro figure of her. I would love one of her. There's enough Minmay figures floating around, but not enough Misa. :(

Correction. There is currently and will NEVER be enough Misa. :p

Sheryl is only 17, but I need no stars!!!

It's a fictional character, damn it. No one will link up Sheryl with child porno.
