Is there a possibility that we'll get DYRL versions or is that impossible since they're HG licensed figures?

My understanding is HG has a merchandise license for DYRL, so it isn't IMPOSSIBLE, but it seems unlikely. They're on a big Robotech kick right now, and I think they really only got the DYRL license to shore up their "blocking imported Yamatos" argument.

Sorry, I know he is a badass, it is just funny!

I think Rick's scale is amazingly close to perfect.

Mine arrives on Tuesday After having pay a customs charge :/  Only reason annoyed at the customs charge is due to the push backs on this figures release.
Still Tuesday be in Hand.

Till then, What's he like compared to the Sentinels Riobot Mospeada figures?

Anyone know if they plan a COCKPIT piece for the 1/12 Macross pilots? Now that Would be nice to see.

I think the sculpt is a lil' tiny bit too skinny. Cool figure though.

Is everyone satisfied with their 1/72 example? Would you get the whole line?

Thanks in advance. :hi:

Cool....but needs more helmet....and Minmay....

I think he needs more head... and torso... and entire rest of the body to scale with that massive chunk of hair.

More head?  kinda looks a bit too bulbous to begin with....almost "IT" like...:shok:

Well I asked what their plans are for the following:-

 

1/  Making a Scale Cockpit for Pilot 1/12 figures to fit.

Bridge sections if Crew Bunnies and Captain are popular. As modular diorama parts.

2/ Plans to make figures from Robotech other 2 lines aka Southern Cross and Mospeada.

3, Plans for Vehicles from any of the Three segments of "Robotech".

Just Got this Reply from them.

 

"
1.  Thank you for your suggestion.  If the figures sell well, it will justify us to have the Diomara display.
2.  Yes, we are going to have figures of the other two generations later.
3.  We would like to have vehicles, but we haven't fixed our plan yet.

Thank you for your support!

Regards,

MY"

Sounds like boils down to popularity and Then Possibly we may see Much more.

Well here's hoping.

I saw a video about the Rick figure, and I can see why some think he is too tall. I hope they make Roy properly taller. This figure is growing on me.

He's only too tall because the ankle joints aren't properly imbedded in the legs.  And that's an easy fix:

Just Dremel the pant legs hollow to a depth of about a centimeter, and drill a new hole for the peg of the ball joint to fit into.

Now he's the perfect height.  :good:

Outstanding (thanks also for the Riobot with him) and simple Mod. Still keeps full range of whatever articulation they gave him?
Will do that mod tomorrow as soon as he lands.

THAT is a fantastic, simple fix, and makes a world of difference to its ability to display with same-scale figures.  I'm definitely going to give it a try.

Thanks and great pose btw.

 

Got mine today and Damn nice indeed. Love the helmet and that drop down visor, total surprise. The colour tone on the rifle is pretty good.

Surprised how much stuff in the box even though I knew already what to expect lol

Figure reminds me of figma/revol with those joints. 

The helmet is amazing. They did a fantastic job there.

KC did a great job

That's actually pretty cool looking. I don't remember ever seeing that paint in any of the shows. Is that cannon?

If the visor has a stobbing LED that traced back and forth, it'd be the KITT paint scheme.

Once they get to the VF-1J....there should be no reason not to expect a "Mass Production" repaint....VF-1A repaints could get crazy....hopefully they do a VF-1D

Umm, am I the only one who sees this paint scheme and is reminded of the so-called Stealth color scheme from the Robotech:  Battlecry video game? :unknw:
