I love Hasegawa so much right now!! Can't wait to see more pics of this SDF-1.

Interesting.

In case anyone is wondering about length, actual length of the SDF-1 is 1210 meters, so in 1/4000 scale, that would be very close to 12 inches (11.9) or 30.25 cm if not including the spiky things coming out of the front. The 1/3000 version from Yamato is 16 inches (actual 1/3000 scale would be about 15.9).

Wow!!! after all that work I put into my 1/3000 - I'm sure the Hasegawa one would be a dream to put together. Can't wait to see the level of detail on this puppy! Now when are they going to get to a VF-4 in 1/72?!

I'm with cool8or. I'd prefer a SDFM version if for nothing else than the fact that I already have a DYRL? SDF-1.

Still, I'm curious to see how the detail on this kit compares to the Yamato 1/3000.

Sorry but yaaaaawwwwwn. Easy pass for me....already have the 1:3000 yamato detailed up, and oh yeh, it transforms. Wake me up if they do a TV version.

And for those of us who couldn't afford it at the time, this is welcome news!

And yes, derex3592, that's thinly veiled jealousy. ;)

According to HLJ, the 1/4000 SDF-1 is from Wave, not Hasegawa.

Well, that sounds more believable. Wasn't Wave the company that released that 1/5000 toy a while back? I wonder if this is going to end up being an upgraded version. Maybe it will actually end up being a toy like the 1/5000.

Somehow I don't buy that, when we see the item sitting smack dab in the middle of other Hasegawa releases.

I agree, this looks to be Hasegawa. In the original picture, you can see the Hasegawa Photo Etched parts to the right of it. I'd buy another one if Hasegawa does one.

1/5000 was the Wave toy: http://www.hlj.com/product/WAVMC-41/Sci

Yellow Submarine and Club M worked on the 1/4000 ones a while back I think: http://www.hlj.com/product/YLSG-060/Sci

Yamato had the 1/3000 and 1/2000.

Well now. Isn't this confusing...

So now my question is... is that a Hasegawa display or a display of officially licensed Macross kits at the show?

It's good for the model builders out there.

Personally, I'm sick of DYRL SDF-1's. DYRSDFM you GDFMSOB's?

even those little 1/12 tiny cones are from Hasegawa. I see metal etched parts for YF-19s.

If the sales of this kit go well, may be we can expect an attack mode version. I really want a TV version, but I don't think that it happens.

Side of the panel shows Hasegawa. So we can safely assumed that it's from Hasegawa then. ;)

Would it be nice it they decide to release also a TV version of the SDF-1. ^_^

please make it transformable... T^T

Hear, hear! It wouldn't take much.

Man, I wish I'd been able to get the 1/5000 WHAM when it was affordable. It'd go well with the 1/5000 Imai I have.

(& the 1/5000 Enterprise D on my desk) I suppose this would be closer to AMT Star Destroyer/Galactica scale, though.

Freak'n awesome!

I'v got the original Imai 1/1500 SDF-1 from the TV series and I'll have to get this one to go with it!

That's a 'grown' kit, rapid prototype, 3D print call it what you will.

Definitely interesting, but I'll wait till I see some sprues before getting too excited by this.

It's still a long way from production and lots can happen 'twixt now and then.

There's always a realist out there.

So far the track record for what Hasegawa has shown at these show has been produced at some point.

I'm in no rush.

I was wondering that myself.

Sorry for all the confusion on the Wave vs. Hasegawa. I'm actually glad it is Hasegawa because it will probably be a more affordable kit, when produced. Wave has a tendency to be a bit pricey on their new tool kits.

The DYRL bridge is smaller and doesn't break apart in cruiser mode like the SDFM one.
