Not bad but I'm not supporting anything that has the HG label on it.

How about now? :rolleyes:

Still not good enough for me.  I'm not biting unless it looks like this:

I'm biting for at least three- my legios need some inbit crawling all over them. Way better than using my old Matchbox "scouts" who aren't scouts.

Well should be "Inbit" but we're getting closer!

Nobody knows anything in the toy industry until preorders are up... and even then, there's room for change. 

I'm quoting myself here because I was totally wrong about the preorders going live tonight. The silver-lining? It sounds certain they are going up before Yellow ships at the end of the month.

That a confirmation on the end of the month for Yellow? Some said December, but I'd be much happier with November (meaning I'll get it December rather than January).

Thinking about a ride armor for my shelves. 
 

how would you guys rate the complexity of the figure compared to, say, the DX VF-25, VF-31 and VF-1, or Yamato v2 / Arcadia VF-1?

 

trying to figure out if I’d enjoy one or just be frustrated the whole time.

Transformation complexity?

 

I'd say more complex than a VF-1, about the same as a VF-25.

And one you have done it once it's cake.

And it depends on which ride armor you get. The Beagle ride armor is probably the most complex for transformation, with the new Sentinel stuff a little easier. If you go cheaper for the Megahouse or CMs then the transformation is a bit simpler (but also might frustrate you for other reasons, like accidentally knocking the wheel pegs out in armor mode every time you slightly move them).

Ah, I was thinking of the sentinel ones, probably should have clarified. Yellow, or Houquet if they ever do one in red.

Adding a find (may have been posted prior) of the english language dub demo of MOSPEADA from HG;

A first for me; ita OK voice acting, but great to see MOSPEADA in english.

Well, at least he won't be obsessed with Admiral Hunter.  For some reason I get a kind of Scooby Doo vibe from the voice acting.

Is that because Stick sounds more disappointed by his engine failure than he does by the death of his fiancée?  <_<

No wait... he thinks she may still be alive?!  :huh:

Thanks for sharing that.  It's sure weird to hear a completely different cast, but from the same pool of Robotech voice actors.  Roy Fokker as Stick Bernard?  Lisa Hayes as the Invid Regis?  :o

That dub sure uses some strange collective nouns, too...  

"Earthians?"

"Rejioss?" 

And where did "Randy Barr" come from?  :unsure:

 

And I could've sworn, as he coverts the Legioss-Tread to Armo-Diver for atmospheric reentry, he says "I'll trim the main nozzle down."  The writers must've been confused by the translation. :unknw:

I surmised that they rewrote it for him to block out the trauma of losing her until eps. 10 when Aisha would have come into the picture, and he'd take a step to move on; first by seeing all the destroyed remains of the soldiers, then meeting Aisha.

If anybody still needs a Ray he's slightly cheaper at BBTS right now.

I honestly wish I was more in love with the T variant. I just dont find it as exciting as the F or Blowsperior.

For those of us who grew up with the... odd translations and dubs of anime in the 80s, that all seemed pretty familiar. 

 

still neat to see it though.

The bad T word is putting this out and I'm surprised HG is pushing the Mospeada name on this rather than Robotech.

MOSPEADA cyclone huh? Love that they only did the VR-52F and are putting both Ray and Stick in it... Because unique arm molds was a bridge too far.

Not surprised at all. This falls right in line with HG taking credit for Japanese works. Even if they do have the license to market this stuff.

If it's got HG on the package don't buy it, lots of other and far better choices out there to spend money on.

For The Adult Collector?

That doesn't look very adult appealing.

I laughed at that a few times. This is not what I would expect from an "adult toy".
