Macross_KC_Hikaru.thumb.jpg.561fb9ace80f6d0c6968ae69feb820b1.jpg

OK, this thing has exceeded all expectations. I'm not gonna say it's the best figure around but everything from the shipping, packaging, accessories, fit and finish tell me that KC actuallly cares about the products they put out and that counts for a lot. Now I have absolutly no regrets about ordering Misa and should probably order Minmei asap.

Lol yeah. Based on this one, I am all in. I don't even care if SHF makes figures anymore, these will do just fine for me.

Is the knee joint popping out?

Nope...after closer inspection, the joints seem to be similar to Revo joints but more wheel shaped instead of round. So depending on the angle and pose, they could be more exposed.

If only KC had make this figure adhere to Rick's body proportions at 1/12 scale, instead of Roy's, this would've been near perfect; as it is, it's too lanky.

Sheryl Nome statue for Wonder Fest. Details are unknown as of know I believe.

Anyone want to get a copy? :D

Nice looking figure, but all that shading makes her look like she hasn’t showered for days.

The only part of that which looks like Sheryl is the hair.

Why is it so hard to get the face right?

That body is pretty off-putting as well.

Is there a Misa Hayase figure with 3 arms? 

I ask because she apparently has 3 arms in the original Macross TV series... specifically episode 27, around 21 minutes 30 seconds in.

Her left arm is positioned so her hand is holding the throttle controls....

And she both arms around Hikaru at the same time!

Proof that Misa has 3 arms!!!

There are no stripes on the first sleeve.  That's someone else's arm!

You're right!  There's a hidden three-some going on in that cockpit.

So that's why the DX Chogokin VF-1 pilots are so small...  

Bandai's been trying to make three figures fit into one pilot seat.  :p

Well after Customs held it up hostage, got mine today.

Damn nice piece and that articulated drop down visor, what a Great Surprise. I though I'd not got one at first lol

 

Reminds me of a figma/revol figure but very easy to figure out everything.

Guess who didn't see the instruction sheet till after playing with itstraight from the box lol

 

Was also surprised at how much stuff Rick comes with.even though I knew looks like a lot in the box lol

Fun taking the figure apart to remove plastic protection, though that indicates possible great base for customs too.

The helmet is just amazing too. Weapons nice and solid and love the tone colour effect on the rifle.

KC did a great job,

The Rick and Claudia don't look tooooo horrible. Gloval and Lisa I guess are passable if they were like $2.99 each. Ben though..DAMN! Homie went on a hard core diet! :blink::rofl:

Funny, i mentioned this some time ago, ha.

BTW, that Rick has Justin Beiber's hairdo...

No way to unsee it now.

I've always wanted "Rick" in that uniform, but these figures are not what I want, sadly. I'd prefer they had no articulation at all, instead of just 5 points.

BTW, that crutch area on Ben is hideous. It is almost like they didn't try at all with these figures :( Ben is by far the biggest abomination here, no offence. He is not even thick .

Global and Claudia are the nicest figures here, but i think Global is too short. i recall him banging his head every time he walked into the bridge.

Why don’t they make more Fixed pose macross figures/statues.  I collect some dragon ball and most look really good and are not expensive. Of course I know dragon ball sells a ton more stuff.

Lol they recycled gloval's hands so both Ben and Rick get old-man wrinkly hands. You just can't tell as much with ben since his hands are white.

They're sculpted to grip the pulse rifle, nunchucks, and double-bladed lightsaber accessories included with the figure... you know, the weapons Rick brandished whenever he wore his duty uniform.  :lol:

That makes sense. Rick is way too young to have such severe rheumatoid arthritis.
