Assembled another display case last night and started moving things around, getting ready for more Sentinel and Arcadia releases.

I love the look of this thing so much... and I am probably one of the biggest proponents of going "re-imagined" on this design as much as possible... but the dual exhaust? I think they may have gone too far now.

Looks like Yellow’s cloth is not “Rey blue,” but more of that chalky grey blue.  Good choice there by Sentinel.

Still wish the armor wasn’t so deep dark blue and was just a few more shades lighter.

Along with confirmation of the chest missiles, we also need to see how the blades look fully retracted.

A lot of die cast parts. Small but heavy beast. I love it

Same here. Ride Armor color is too dark blue. And the extra exhaust is too much. Still hope there's a chest missile gimmick still.

As for the Legioss, I can't help thinking that somehow the proportion is closer to Wave's kit than the other figure version. 

But overall, I'm loving what I see here. Now I'm thinking if I need to get 2 for Legioss. If only if it's $50 cheaper. ^_^

Yea after looking at ur color choice, Noel, the dark blue could be a tad lighter. I suppose it’s the cheapest blue in toy land, something like the vf-0D blue.

Liking the legioss sculpt Looks really chunky like...

so many decisions to make...sigh...might have to sacrifice chuck for this...

I doubt it will actually release in July, if that's a factor. :unsure:

So what's with the clip on the back of the Legioss's forearm? Is that where the Tread attaches?

Good eye.  If so, its a strange attachment point.  Very far forward.

I think it's 25k... And with discounts probably less.

I'm only interested in the Legioss jets.

It's part of the shows title, but the Mospeada bikes have always left me cold.

Crazy, if anything I'm the opposite, I always saw the jets as superfluous to the bikes.  I'm only getting into the Legioss and Tlead now even though as a kid I had a red triple changer.

For me, I absolutely LOVE the bikes, and it's all about the bikes for me. That said, I do like the Legioss and TLEAD a ton. I had sworn off collecting anything other than bikes a while ago... but MOSPEADA is kind of the exception when there's a toy that really strikes my fancy. Depending on the final pricing, I'll likely pick up one of each of these.

 

As a side note, Aramaki once said in an interview that they designed the show around the bikes and that was what they really wrote all of the original proposals around. The toy companies were telling them that they needed some planes too, due to the success of Macross licensing, so they basically went back into the office over the weekend and worked out the Legioss and TLEAD in a rush overnight for a pitch in the morning, just to keep the potential advertisers happy.

Do we have any word on whether the markings on the Legioss will be stickers or printed?  The price on the Legioss is a bit high for my liking (though not a complete deal breaker), but it could be more palatable if it turns out that they took a page from Bandai's playbook and printed everything.

There's a big chance that it's mostly tampoed. I don't remember the bikes came with some optional stickers.

And seeing that new Legioss pics... Oh yes, I'm IN! 8)

Is their any particular reason you in for legioss?...also it seems there is a divide amongst the ppl here and most are waiting for images of the fighter mode to make a final decision on this.

I love the bikes.  As for the jet.  I prefers valkyries but the legioss is still a cool design.  I know it's going to be premium price and that giant size head may keep me away from getting one.

If only for that one instance, I'm greatful that marketing sense kicked-in. Otherwise it would have been awkward seeing the Mars soldiers diving to earth on only their MOSPEADAs.

For one, I don't own a Legioss figure. Didn't get a chance of owning a Gakken back in the 80's when it came out nor having the CM's releases. Read about stuff about the Toynami releases. I had high hopes about the Evolution release until I read and watch videos of it. Since I have the Sentinel Ride Armors, I really appreciate Sentinel's take on it in the overall quality of it. So this time, I'm ready to own one. I'm pretty sure it's not the perfect Legioss compared to the lineart and other toy incarnation. And I'm already liking how the Fighter mode looks in the early stage of prototype. I like how short it is compared to Evolution. So I'm willing to take a chance on this. ;)

Just the Tlead, the Legioss was always part of the show but it was originally a burner vehicle, getting used and blown up then others found later.

I really hope the Legioss is a solid release.  I’m finding myself getting more and more hyped for it.

Sorry, I guess I misremembered. I thought the plane at that point in time wasn't transformable, but just a somewhat generic fighter (and a burner vehicle, as you said).

I'm sure there were lots of iterations, maybe the earlier ones had basic planes but the Legioss went through several iterations and was less of a weekend design where the tread was definitely a last minute slap on.
