If you look up the reviews of the previous 1/4 scale figures, they aren't all that articulated like the smaller ones are.  The new ones look the same, but I ordered one anyway.  I wish they'd do a 1/4 scale queen, but since the smaller one was $100, I doubt I could afford a big one.

I recently found a thread where a guy modded his power loader to be a bit more like the movie.  But he didn't do the light on top.  I found this to do so from the RC community.  It might be a little bit big tho.  We'll see.

I just pre ordered a couple of 9" NECA figures.............................and that 22" monster! I'm not too concerned about articulation. I'l probably set it up somewhere once and leave it. Where that spot is going to be, I don't know. It certainly won't be fitting in any of my glass cases!

Those power loaders are awesome.

Too bad that APC and pulse rifle are so much money. Well, more money than I'm winning to spend on them.

Thanks!

I didn't know Amazon already shipped this.  Mine still says shipping in October.

I forgot about Boba Fett yesterday and missed it today.  I did get a souvenir though.  :lol:  Oh well.  It's all good either way.

LOL!

Yeah, it seems some people got their shipments early for Palpatine and some did not. No idea what the criteria was.

Hell no! Way overpriced... I'll wait for it to be released in the wild. Guessing that it will be snapped up quickly before anyone gets a chance to get a copy.

I feel that as one of the biggest Boba Fett fans around, I need to have one but I absolutely refuse to pay that kinda markup for it. If anyone got an extra that they are willing to help me out with, please just let me know. Thanks!

These two guys showed up today. The SV has the goofy foot problem. And didn't come with a stand like the Yamato stuff did. I'll have to wait for the pile of Yeti Stands I ordered to show up to get it out of "crash position". The VF-1S is pretty cute. It's the first 1/60 VF I have un-boxed. It's a wee bit small for my tastes. All hail the 1/48!

^ looking good!

R-Jetan Metallic Version showed up today and honestly was not expecting the box to be so big (VF-1J DX for scale)!

Being a Fewture release I was thinking maybe a small shoebox for this guy, but a 16" x 15" x 6" box! Seems a little overkill for a figure looking to be about 8"...no wonder shipping was up there!

That pose pretty much sums up Arad's entire role in the series.

Excellent posing, Saburo!  :good:

Thank you @tekering, it was a spontaneous decision to include the 31S in the box shot.  Also now that I look at it it looks like a car salesman "How can I get you into this Armored Parts set?".  :lol:

Ummm...  Mandarake.... ummm.... this does not look like the Macross toy I was expecting.  

(sigh) Time to email their customer support... (sigh)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

edit in: I hope they cover the shipping, this is really unfortunate.

This is really sweet! I love all these, ha, I thought the SR-71 was actually bigger than this.

Finally heard back from Mandarake about shipping me the wrong item.

Good news is that they will be sending me my VF-171 and Armored Parts.

And I guess the incorrect figure they sent me is cheap enough that it is not worth it for them to have me ship it back (the box is HUGE) .  So I now own a figure from something called "Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS"....??????   That was a mouthful...

It's an old figure for series more than 10 years back, and yeah the price is so low (about 2000 to 3500 yen) that maybe the shipping fee from your place to japan is cost more than the item itself.:rolleyes:

I am guessing it is a Sailor Moon-like show.  The figure is pretty well-made, from what I can see.  Pondering if I can have its weapon be wielded by a valkyrie...

I'm guessing that's a kit, due to the lack of markings, but looks pretty good!  I want to say that looks like the old Monogram snap kit, but I thought that one was 1/144?

It’s a kit that is closer to 1/100.  I haven’t applied the markings yet.  Maybe I’ll put some spare HM skull stickers on it.

My first VF-25. Really fiddly, but a nice piece. I won't lie, it had me on the ropes for a few minutes. I really dig though. I do realize having the knife in the shield hand isn't exactly how that's supposed to be done, but he looks cool! I'm absolutely going to have to get a couple more so I can have a fighter and gerwalk thing going on.

Also un-boxed another 1/60 VF-1S Focker. This one is grounded until my Yeti stands come in.

I've decided that the VF-25 is my favorite model of valk. I definitely agree that a slightly updated version would be very welcome - maybe even see Arcadia's take on it.

 

Yes, yes...fantasy land.

The 25 is my fave as well. Looks good naked, with supers, and armor.
