Hope they will also tackle Robotech: The Next Generation lead figures in their civilian clothes. So we can use it with our Sentinel bikes. ;)

Just picked up good 'ole Rick Hunter thanks to all you enablers; especially @Slave IV.  I've been traveling in Europe this week so it's waiting for me when I get home.  I've been getting the jones for Macross/Robotech so this line will suffice for now.  Hopefully it doesn't suck me in cuz then I'll need the others damnit

Oh it will, it will;)

It really is a very well done figure with great care that went into the while package and it shows. 
 

Now, I want to know if Dana’s Armor actually fits over the basic figure or if it’s two separate figures.

I wasn’t super excited about the figures, until I saw that teaser with the armor. Southern Cross armor is some of my absolute favorites. Hopefully they also do the beetle butt bad guys.

You mean the so-called "Bioroid Terminator?"

God, that name is wrong in so many ways it makes my head hurt.  :bigshok:

Well I thought I would try another Valk from KC. These will be the only two I own. Wanna know why there are no TV missiles? They don’t for. None of them. And it caused my to break one of the connecting points on the wing. Had to super glue it back as well as a thruster. Lame.

 However, Rick is really well done as a 12” figure. Gonna mess with that some more. That will go in a case.

@DYRL VF-1S yeah I’ve got the black and red 1S and I like it well enough, but some pictures recently of their 1J make it look like they’ve already done some revisions to the design. Hoping to see some improvement there in a few spots I found troublesome (mainly the hip joint connector feeling flimsy, and the head antennae being stiff to the point of breaking).

considering what Robotech fans had as official merchandise before they’re leaps ahead, but they need a little work to close in on Arcadia. I think they can get there with a few tweaks.

Man that’s a bummer, but honestly, good on them for keeping the updates coming and being up front about it. 
 

really interested to see if this 1J is a revised design like some recent pictures seem to indicate.

Yes, new updates without a significant increase in price will garner more business for them. Wonder if we will see a flood of factory seconds bootlegs due to the large quantity that didn’t meet QC

People talk about the lack of appetite for Southern Cross products but as far as I'm concerned I'm all in.  I've always loved the armor designs.

I wish they'd lay off the rivets.

I have a thing about rivets and indeed even panel lines.

I think they show up too exaggerated when easily visible because if we blew up that item to 100% scale, they've be just gaps that would affect the airframe.

That pic above just screams this. 

In reality if we shrunk an F-14 down to 1/100, I doubt we'd see panel lines of the cockpit assembly anywhere near as easily as we see in that VF-1 pic.

Are those rivets raised?  No modern aircraft has raised rivets.  At most you will have flush rivets.  Wow, that takes something that looked pretty cool to looking like it has herpes.

They should probably blew up a Hasegawa kit so it will have subtle panel lines and rivets rather than shrink the recent 1/6 cockpit speaker. ^_^

Well, VF-1 is still kind of based on an 'older' fighter jet -- F-14. But for sure back then, those are considered 'modern'. :rolleyes:

Hahaha! Just playin'. :lol:

 

Anyways, at the scale, does it comes with speakers? ^_^

So if KL is willing to do a 1/12 cockpit for a KC product....wonder if they would be willing to do some hangar and diorama sets for Bandai HMR Macross products?

The Southern Cross action figure line is gonna be great. The only thing I’m worried about is hip movement. Recent gelgoog kits from Bandai have some interesting solutions to odd waist armor, so I’m wondering if they could take hints from that. The prototype pics so far just look solid at the hip armor even though it appears to be jointed underneath. If they could get that sorted a hover bike would be a cool accessory or at least separate buy.
