The only HMR valks that has a stand are the VF-1J (M&M), VF-1S Messer, and the DYRL Strike Roy (If you did the pre-order or the other option is to see if the stand is up for grabs) to the best of my knowledge. 

You could get the Stage Act 5 stands through your local going hobby shop that sells them.

I just threw it on a spare from my Missile Regult set.

My SAL shipment from MyKombini has shown as accepted since the 15th.  Not worried about it, just giving you guys an update on SAL to California :D

Does the type of grey of the CF VF-1A come close to the grey of the VE-1?

Do you mean my custom VF-1A Cavaliers?  Yeah I haven’t worked on it.

Yes I think so.  Just as long as transforming it back into fighter mode doesn't disturb your work, man.  It looked great :)

Although there was nothing indicating it would happen, I was really hoping there'd be an announcement this week for the next HMR Macross release. Oh well.

Here's hoping March holds some good things for us.

I would assume that they are producing VT-1 next, hopefully anyway :)  Would be nice to see a VF-1D also.

Regult variations.

Taken from a quote by William Cowper's poem, “The Task” (1785): “Variety is the very spice of life, That gives it all its flavor.” ;)

We are seeing the emergence of the most complete line of Macross Toy's that people will be trying to piece together for another decade.  Mark my word.

Were there any pics or updates from Wonderfest about the HMR VF-2SS Nexx coming out? 

Hopefully there will be  a VF-1D release down the road, would like to get a couple of those!

Looks like you need a landing craft to deploy all those regults.

This surprises you?  Why would anyone pay for EMS if SAL was just as quick for less money? :unknw:

A couple of times I got SAL within 10 days.

I have problems paying extras like EMS and even next day domestic shipping because no matter what fast shipping you pay for there's always a chance that the online store will just get behind in sending out packages.  What good is fast shipping when someone takes a week just to get a package out the door.

I never got the point of paying anything for faster shipping at any time...these are all things we never had that we will have potentially for life so what's the rush? The only point to be made about paying more (that makes sense to me for those who want to) is the extra insurance that is sometimes included but I'm also not into not into paying to insure someone else's incompetence.

I would have problems too if it happened all the time......nothing is perfect

As for a shop adding extra days to your shipments on a consistent basis.....well, complain or take your business elsewhere.....the days of having limited buying options are thankfully gone

Nah just keeping people updated that want to know how long SAL takes.  I already have 9 valkyries on the shelf so I can definitely wait, even 2 months if it takes that long :)

I just shipped my first box by boat... very curious to see how long that will take. My missile Regult set appears set to get delivered today after entering customs 1/17... a bit long. Hopefully the box isn't totally destroyed... long delays often mean the package got damaged and they couldnt' figure out how to deliver it. Fingers crossed that's not the case.

I caved and bought a second brownie and missile set...

I've shipped all my purchases by boat when it presents a significant (around $10 or more) savings and so far, so good. Saved me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for more items. Hope it works out for you!

I've shipped a couple items by boat. Banzai Hobby sale stuff (HiRM Wing Zero, couple Hasegawa Macross kits), and a PG from Nippon Yasan that was on significant sale. All arrived at about 2.5months later, condition was just fine.

My most recent HMR orders from NY by boat were the Destroids and the Regults.  Everything came perfect with extra bubble wrap in undamaged shipping boxes.  My VE-1’s and several 1/100 Macross figures will also be coming from boat.

Hopefully your shipment also comes in excellent condition.

Yep the savings here and there eventually add up to have more money to buy more toys.

So, looking at my 2 VE-1s, the nubs on this thing are atrocious.

Had to spend a good 10minutes with a hobby knife cutting them all flush, and trying to hide the gouges and stress marks left from manufacture.

 

Never seen a HMR this bad, and I've got Max&Milia, Messer, Missile Regults, Glaug, Spartan, Defender, VF-2SS, and an old HM Roy.

My SAL package just arrived at LAX so it won't take it very long to get here from there maybe a few days.

Since the wonderfest pics showed a non macross item for the next hmr, I guess we probably gotta wait another month or so for some news on a macross item.

:bump:

I never noticed how different the VE-1 is, as seen on screen, compaired to all the toys/models/and even line art. The leg fast packs look different, the lower sensor mast is different, no antenna on the sides of the booster packs...which themselves look different too. The left wing appears to have an antenna coming off of the end and the Radom are looks different too.
