The leg position in that diver mode is nice. The under intake kibble my not be there prettiest but that still looks really good.

Its like a company is taking the Legioss seriously at last.  So long as they don't cut corners on materials like Toynami did.

I so definitely want this. ^_^

Nice bonus on the small bike figure.

Though I don’t know what to think about the folded antenna.

Just think of it as part of the new aesthetic.

Or a placeholder until some clever and talented enterprising member of this community comes up with a superior Shapeways replacement.

Am I the only one that thinks that the red/white/black color scheme is kinda appealing?  Maybe not exactly the way the have it colored in that prototype -- but some variation of it.

Orange or red? I think with all the finishing paint applications it would probably look really good.

The folded antenna hinge hints at the size this thing is going to be.  On the smaller side it appears.

Should be the same size as the CM's or Toynami.

Nope, your not alone I said the same on the previous page. Though I prefer the Orange and White one. There appear to be 2 prototypes being shown. One is orange brown/ white and the other more Red/white.

I'm sorry, but this Legioss looks amazing.  That mini ride armor and poseable figure has me so excited, I'd be embarrassed if I stood up right now.  If that same figure fits in the cockpit, I'm gonna make a mess.  I could be wrong, but it looks like there's a hinge at the waist in Armo-Soldier mode that gives it some added poseability.  Always wanted my Legioss to be able to do crunches!  Hopefully, that added hinge (if that's what it is) doesn't turn the entire thing into a limp, hunched over mess.

Quite a bit, it looks like.  I'm not sure if the diver-mode heels are mistransformed, since they look pulled back too far, and exposing a ton of the ankle.

Still.. this is going to be my first Legioss.  I told myself I'd buy one if they ever fixed the legs in fighter mode, and by golly, this one looks like it nails it. ^_^

I'm in the same boat.  I know it's gonna sting though. 

The Legioss was always my favourite mecha when I was a kid.  It wasn't till I was in my early 30's that I discovered most of the toys were terrible and stopped really paying attention to it.  Well that and realising the cartoons I'd watched were a patchwork of unrelated sources...

Seeing Captain America's resin, big build all those years ago was actually what brought me to this site.  His rendition was what I thought it should look like in toy form, but nobody ever seemed to get it right.

Until now...

I've never owned a Legioss so can't compare what I'm looking at, but that ankle pivot in gerwalk broke me... Now I gotta buy one. Looking good!!

This has nothing to do with admiring a great design.

You'd think that, but in my case 15 years ago, it totally did.  "Oh, this is from a totally different series and isn't a natural progression of the original VF-1?  Meh..."  I think the fact that none of the toys could look like the artwork or anime just sealed it.  But I'm older and less critical now and this thing looks pretty amazing.  So there you go.

Is the toy in diver mode missing its head?

Is there going to be another global financial crisis? Let's have a look...

  • Inverted yield curve? Check!
  • Large fluctuations in stock markets? Check!
  • Hoquet Ride Armor prototype finalised? Check!

All signs point to an imminent market crash! :o

man i need that legioss...the looks are non traditional, but i like how the figher's nose isn't just flipped backwards onto its back.  they thought about the cockpit, where that goes and how to shorten the nose turned into "tail".  the joint system on the thing will give it a great diver mode too.  hopefully its all solid and not fidgety or fragile.  although i prefer the ET's proportions overall (less squat), i think if they pull this off, it will be the first modern legioss toy that feels as if its made when it is and is good in comparison to its peers.  toynamis and CMs both lagged behind their peers...for instance the valkyries of the late aughts were much better toys than those legioss/alphas, and lets not menton how much better a 2008 circa valkyrie is compared to a 2017/8 ET legioss.  that said i'll keep my ET trio (RGB, didn't bite on the dark one) and add one of these new ones...i'd like to get all of them but real life etc. haha.

The hip and shoulder joints are key.

I’ve always preferred ratchet joints for those areas on the Legioss/Alpha.

But if it must be a friction joint, they’ve got to be able to hold up strong.

This is probably the first Legioss I have been excited about since the original.  All the proportions look "right enough" it doesn't appear to be a floppy mess and even like how they dealt with the cockpit, a weakness on even Legioss toy.  The sternum and crotch still seem to hang a little low in fighter mode, but not as bad as the Toynami POS.  My only real crit would be the massive gap in the hip/thigh in fighter mode.  I hope they come up with a good solution to that.

Me too. First time when i looking for every new picture everywhere and want to buy all variants.

I think the exposed hip joint in fighter mode is just the concession we're going to have to make for scale. If this were 1/32 there'd probably be some fun gimmick to hide that.

Strong dollar don’t mean squat if Houquet never gets produced and becomes vaporware. :ph34r::shok::(

That’s why I’m really hoping Sentinel is doing well.

It’s way, WAY too early to speculate.  But I’d prefer this be a “Toynami finally releases an awesome Beta after years of delays,” rather than a “Beagle shows off a beautiful Houquet prototype, but it never gets produced” situation.

Again, way too early, but the signs give me pause and some concern.
