All this Sentinel talk got me to pull out a bunch of my Robotech The New Generation products. I put up a review of the Toynami MPC Alphas and even started playing with my Betas again. My KitzConcept 1/72 fast packs just arrived so I'll probably switch back to Macross now. In the meantime, here was a fun group shot:

Love this group shot, @jenius. :wub: :good: 

I actually can't wait to see what's Sentinel's offering on our table this time around after Legioss Eta gets released. ;)

Agree 100%!  Hoping it’s finally a Legioss worth getting. I got the Aoshima’s a few years back and was disappointed. Hoped Evolutions would be better but nope. Fingers crossed for sentinels try.

Awesome group shot! I have all 3 Betas including an extra Blue Beta and Scott's Alpha. Never did get the Red or Green one though...

I got into collecting the Mospeada toys late in the game, not til like 2012.I bought all the poseable Soldier mode Alphas. The Beta's I managed to get for really cheap both here on MW & the RT store when there were on sale a few years back.

If someone puts up the Red & Green Alpha for a decent price I'd get them. B))

The Evolution Toy Dark Legioss has landed.

522704442_DarkLegioss.thumb.jpg.03f2406128bbb38d2523c5e42bfe38a7.jpg

It features all the design innovations and quality of construction we've come to expect from Evo Toys...  <_<

721506656_alternatepilot.thumb.jpg.6d404e98630f226004d4449ddd5f9ec1.jpg

Surprisingly, however, it comes with two pilot options.  :huh:

The smaller-scale Borough Superior figures are also a welcome addition to your collection*, despite their awkward poses and proportions.

* Y'know, if you collect that sort of thing.  :p

Damn. :( 

 

That could be it from ET. I don't expect them to do the Drone Legioss seeing as it would take actual retooling.

Mine should ship after the Golden Week holiday (because I know how much people here want to know that sort of thing :unsure:).

How tall in millimeters are the standing figures? (mine are packed away atm) I'm curious as to what scale they are... :unsure:

I got my prep in progress email from NY but I suspect I'll have a long wait... which is fine since I'm currently playing with my KitzConcept fast packs and Hi-Metal R VF-1D.

Well, the Dark Legioss passes the bare minimum required for an Evolution Toy: it cuts a heroic figure.

minimum.thumb.jpg.0a04262dc070acdfdbc2ea2ff2ee1360.jpg

But look closer, and problems are immediately apparent:

1147890402_hangingpanel.thumb.jpg.e5271c92b64c227108e8a330df025da3.jpg

See how that panel just hangs loose under the right arm?

1961293130_firstproblem.thumb.jpg.a6b3881187acec44f90b6aac060d814e.jpg

There's no enough tension to hold it up, and nothing to lock it in place where it belongs...

28433415_limpwrist.thumb.jpg.971f77991ac9c992839a32e8fd147543.jpg

...and the wrist lacks the strength or the tension to hold the gun straight, too.  :mellow:

1959063488_missingnub.thumb.jpg.f907ab138bb090014bfccf24ddb3405c.jpg

The port wing has a properly-molded tab to lock the wings into the fuselage for Armo-Soldier mode, but the starboard wing has only a malformed stump.  :shok:

2030787332_therightarm.thumb.jpg.7684c1423beb7cfe6904a001b9459dff.jpg

The right forearm, at least, fits fairly flush with the shoulder (as long as you don't tab the arm into the leg below it)...

15033766_theleftarm.thumb.jpg.03be4d1a2c240041cd33b81a913184a9.jpg

...but the left forearm won't go in any further than this.  :unsure:

And look at that glue residue on the shoulder!  :angry:

residue.thumb.jpg.39f4bbb3b1c71505ce649e13ee9eb068.jpg

In fact, glue residue and grease are all over the toy...

stained.thumb.jpg.c0bcbb5237974f11483148b1a9e7d56c.jpg

...and the surface shows visible stress marks and oily fingerprints, even before transformation is attempted.

It's a pain to deal with returns through Amazon.jp, but I can't accept this garbage.

Yeah, that's about how I feel about the quality control.  Mine's a total crap show.  :bigshok:

They're 1:60th.  Note how well they display with Bandai, Yamato, and Arcadia figures at the same scale:

493774877_one-sixtiethcrossover.thumb.jpg.fd7fbe4af0c5b271208f377e54dfd10f.jpg

I display them with the Toynami Alphas, and they scale really well together.  B))

Sorry to hear it, hopefully Amazon will sort it out for you. :(

Hopefully mine won't be a complete lemon turkey, but it's not looking good... :unsure:

So, Amazon immediately sent me a replacement...

1383003566_promptreplacement.thumb.jpg.ee964837020985923db7ed8ab4a526d4.jpg

...and I'm happy to say it's a major improvement.  With proper tabs on the wings this time, everything locks up securely in the back...

2129258173_fixedwing.thumb.jpg.dc79c6f746ecb96134ab8fbd515f3a6e.jpg

No glue residue on the surface this time around, and the joints in the right arm are now strong enough to handle the weight of the gun.  :good:

improvements.thumb.jpg.522ae6b8c63f53d0265db0071e3e5186.jpg

However, there are some unique problems with the new one as well, like that stress mark on the protruding peg...

49930360_stressmark.thumb.jpg.548e2b6145621d0ec32bcee9aa28d155.jpg

...and, while much less greasy overall, there's still a significant amount of oil on the thighs.

oil.thumb.jpg.cf5584191c197029ea562ad06d8ccd04.jpg

Still, it's good to know they aren't all garbage.  :p

i'm glad in my personal head canon i don't need the dark legioss.  lol.  seems like the quality control has actually gotten worse since the other ones.  glad your second copy was better.

Does anyone have a high quality image of the Mospeada mecha scale chart? I've seen tiny images of it before but I couldn't find it in the Mospeada Complete Works Art Book.

Thanks, Size Chart 2 was what I was looking for. I wonder if it's fan made or actually exists in a publication somewhere.

I'd say official, since it's in the MOSPEADA Complete Art Works book:

Here's a closeup of the second one:

There are also these different size comparisons in the old ARTMIC Design Works B-Club Special:

While going through all my stuff in storage I found an extra box and inside that was more Mospeada toys, I actually forgot I had more toys in there. 

So I decided to take some pics, enjoy! B)):D

Thanks Ignacio! The CM's isn't the greatest since there are no "Locking tabs" but if you can still find it for a good price, grab a Pilot-less Type Dark Legioss or two, they look awesome! :D
