I only wish the middle missile launcher was removable. That was not seen in the show and don't know where that came from, and it looks terrible in Soldier mode

Amazon JP for the win, specially when factoring in the ultra reasonable and fast DHL shipping.

If it's not removable I'll cut it off.

Do we have an idea of how tall in battroid mode this will be? I figure around 20 cm?

Soldier mode is 160mm/6.3" according to the specs on Hobby Search. That seems pretty short. A 1/48 VF-1 is about 254mm/10".

I'm not sure that's a good spec.

Seems like it's removable. It's not attached in this photo.

Phew, totally missed this, but HLJ still had preorders up this morning. So much easier than trying to snag a dx. 

Got a confirmation email already

Sounds about right. A Legioss is supposed to be around 8 mts, so 1/48 should be around 16 cm.

There's no sense in comparing it to the VF-1, since it's a lot shorter than it.

Nice!! Went with Amazon.jp as well. Can’t beat that price once shipping is factored in. 
 

I also agree, the nose section is a tad big/over scaled compared to the rest of the fighter but still acceptable. Could’ve been better but the Legioss was never the most attractive fighter IMO.

Let's hope it is that way, and not just a matter of camera angle

If you are used to macross, then yeah legioss is on the smaller side...smaller than a VF-1..

If sentinel ever makes a tread, then that would boost up the size considerably. Not sure how much a tread would then cost tho...

Even in Robotech the Alpha was significantly smaller than the VF-1.

Tread.  $325 I'll assume.

I like your thinking.  If I had the shopping talent I'd replace the head with the Drone version and the Synchro Cannon.

Thanks for all of the helpful links! I decided to go with Anime Export ($215 USD) on this one. No telling what the shipping will be, but I'll post here once it updates. Hope I don't get screwed on the fee.

Man, I hope this is a solid release.  Very few things really get me excited but that Soldier mode really gets me going.  Especially the tiny articulated pilot emerging.

Sentinel is claiming 1:48, which would suggest they're as large as the Evolution Toys Legioss... when in fact, they're as small as the Toynami Alphas, making them closer to 1:60.

Yeah, I'm not too thrilled with the size/cost ratio. I'm re-thinking my PO now........

Thanks, IIRC this is going to be about the same size as the MOSPEADA’s, right? At work so I can’t look it up.

ET is 1/32... Toynami is about 1/50 so very similar in size.

Damn, I really don’t want to reinvest in another Legioss.

But it looks oh so good!

Not exactly the pose I envisioned to show off the joint strength and posing options, but if the Legioss can hold this with no issues, we might have a winner:

And if they add a Tread to this, I’ll be kicking myself for not buying it.

Totally how many jet fighters in Mospeada? Three? Green, Blue, Red?

Thanks.

The main seven had three Legiosses and one Tread.

The Green can be viewed as the CF version.

Plus, there’s the additional black Shadow version (both a manned and drone version) that shows up at the end.

And black shadow fighter with a drone variant but that requires significant re molding.

Quite a few in the thread, ranging from around $215 on up.

I'll probably skip on the green version, but I'll totally be down for a red one if it's done, and that gray version would be a no-brainer.  Seriously, I've almost never even given the Legioss a second glance in any incarnation, but this thing just blows all the other iterations away in appearance.
