Probably just a legal thing to skip some sort of testing when you know your audience is in its 40s.

For the price, I hope all of the markings are printed on! No stickers!  Overall, looks gorgeous. I love that you can open the cockpit hatch in solider mode. Cool stuff man. I'm hoping you can do a little more as far as posing goes, but we shall see in-hand. June 2020 is pretty far away so plenty of time to save.

New photos and 6/2020 release date via Dengeki Hobby:

It's perfect IMHO. I Never loved any of the modern offerings, they where always to lean and tall looking. Alphas to me have always been "stubby" and a bit 'Squat" looking. Sentinel appears to have really nailed that look and made the fighter mode amazing.

Looks like the pilot figures are even articulated! 

I'm in for all three + the eventual Beta's.

It shows up in the search at HLJ but the page won't come up yet.  Same price as hobbysearch.

Riobot 1/48 AFC-01H Legioss ETA (Completed) Item picture11

I never realized how complicated the landing gear on the Legioss was, not liking that at all. Just my opinion doesn't have to be yours.

I've never gotten anything from Hobby Search. Anything I need to know that's tricky? Any reason not to go through them?

They will get upset if you cancel. Payment on arrival.

Best customer support of ANY Japanese hobby retailer I have used, including HLJ.

Does Hobby Search ask for upfront payment? 

Their website says automatically charged at time of release.  Sounds like it's not up front.

So the sligyt dip in the wings is intentional, not loose prototype issues... :unsure:

The Legios has always had downward sloped wings.

Reserved three.:yahoo::good:

It looks like I decided to get back into the toy thing right on time. First the Bandai DX VF-1's then this!

Oh I'm referring to the design of the landing gear wheels. Look how that rear-gear door is almost flush with the table.

They're pretty good, just don't try cancelling post 7 days of your pre-order, they get real pissy. HLJ is probably best for foreigners overall, native English speaking staff is a real plus too (for when things go wrong).

Maybe you can just fold the white doors back up to be less of an eye sore?

Soooo glad I never bought any of the Evo Toys. This Legioss looks really amazing and the new take on the cockpit really solved the issues of the elongated nose profile when in soldier mode.  
 

I hope this line is a success and we get to see a Tled down the line. Just not too far off.

Pretty excited about this release.

I'll probably just leave mine with the gear up or keep it in Soldier mode. B))

Yeah, that's a bit worrying. :unsure:

I have to get used to how large the front half of fighter mode looks compared to the rear. Certainly not a deal breaker by any stretch of the imagination, and I have enough confidence in Sentinel that this will be a solid release. I'm definitely in for one!

It's got three modes right.;):D

I don't do the "whole line" thing like a,lot of people seem to enjoy (I'm not knocking it). For example it seems a lot of people want the whole VF-1 DX Vermilion Squadron. That doesn't do anything for me. I go with what I think looks cool and/or has nostalgia value and get one in each mode I like so I can display them all at once. Fore example I have three Yamato 1/48 VF-1S Roy's. One for each mode. But I only have two Ivanov and two Nora's because I only like the look of Fighter and Gerwalk. The SV-51 Battroid doesn't do it for me.

So you don't care for color/look of the other fighters so you're just going with blue for all three modes?
