is it a actual, "we redesigned it and made improvements" Renewal or just a "it's really just a reissue in a darker color and with new tampo printing" renewal?

Is this new? Or the current Bandai one?

Just when I thought I was up to date, they throw another thing out there for me to preorder.

Hmmm I might be interested depending on how much of a "renewal" this is...

I was just thinking I need to hunt one of these down today.

Good, I might still have a way to get one, since I passed on them before. Really wish I could get a version with just the sharkmouth markings though, the nose-art is probably my least favorite thing about it. :p

I was under the impression, this really didn't need a renewal...

Just needed to be ginormous lol.

240$? Yikes.. Wasn't the non SP only 160$ originally?

Already got the SP version but after looking at the pics a bit more, even though the color and nose art are really the only difference I can see, I think I'm down. Count me in for one. I could use a second one anyway :)

Edit: Yay 2000 posts. That's a record for me on any forum...been tired of eatin all them pineapples B))

Kind of on the fence about this one, I hope there are improvements of some sorts. I already have the older SP version and all the Side <VF> toys to go with it including a completed pixie squad. I don't know how another one will fit in to my collection. I will wait until we learn more about it.

I don't have one so I am in.

Once again into the pre-order madness I go. :)

I really don't understand you guys sometimes....

Justifying a new Macross purchase is so simple :D

One for fighter, one for battroid!

Hey, you have to be a fan of the design.

There are a few releases that I've gladly passed on and not looked back in regret, this Monster will join those ranks along with the last one from Bandai and the one from Yamato. :p

I love the darker green on this one. I had a DX Monster before and it's a great toy. Would definitely get this due to the colour. Is the noseart optional or is it tampo'd on already?

It says on the article it's renewal COLOR. I assume that means nothing's changed but the color.

This looks awesome even if it's just a recolor. I've never had one so I'll be picking up one

K monster re-colour in Nov, maybe hints for VF 25S armored movie version in Dec?

And actually this darker green goes back to the Yamato's colour scheme :)

This board is so going down when the VF-25S is about to release for PO (asuming that it does).

All these people getting one is making me want one :X

Funny how that works... ^_^

I'm tempted too, but the pinnup nose art kind of puts me off; I'd much rather get a version with the eyes over the shark's mouth, to be honest. And what's with 3760 JPY mark-up over the previous SP release? Also, will this be a true renewal (reengineered) release, a half-assed tweak like the VF-27 1.5, or the exact same old toy molded in slightly darker plastic and unique decoration as some have mentioned?

I made a general comment as fighter/battroid modes. I of course know that we have destroid/shuttle in VB-6's case :D

Tempting, But I have my floppy mess of a Yamato VB-6.
I love the damn thing, but I'm gonna keep this in mind. That price point has me hesitant.

Still got the two originals. They were solid so I think this to be a rerelease not a renewal. There's nothing in that scan to indicate a change in scale, nor improvements to the mold. Darker colour is welcome, but it's more of Bandai keeping interest before the new series.
