Congrats on the cribmidget Kicker. Good news is you'll be able to share your collection with your kid as they grow up. My daughter asks all sorts of questions about mine and I picked up a few of those cheap RT SD figures they had for her.

As for the lull in your collecting, it happens to everyone. There isn't a new series coming out, Bandai is cranking out better versions of the same stuff, Arcadia is cranking out exactly the same stuff except one is going to a formal event and the YF-19 which is next year, and there's no word on the YF-30 or Vajra. All in all it's not to much to be excited about.

At least you have your customs though. Maybe get some custom battle scenes made. That's something I'd like to get into myself. Instead of just having valks on a shelf I'd rather them tell their story in a diorama.

After selling my pieces I wasn't thrilled with,

I've come down to my very modest collection.

I've basically have 3 Detolfs, one for each series I collect.

One being Macross, two being Transformers, and three being 3A.

The lower tiers are mainly just filled with CQ's, gashapon and

Other small goods that are fillers. They are waiting for the next round!

Obviously, I've got some room to full, but time to figure it out.

Not in any rush!

* of course this posts right after kicker saying he's ran out of room LOL!

Show off your other shelves man!

Space has become limited and I too have be slimming down my Macross collection. It sure took a lot of soul searching to decide on what to keep and what to sell. I arranged my DYRL shelf last week (still looking for Elint Seeker) and this week I arranged my Macross Frontier shelf. With super parts for vf-25g, rvf-25 and vf-171cf on pre-order I am almost done.

So the verdict for flightpose stand is:

- They are awesome

- Don't make the soft parts touch tampo prints

Is it correct?

Just the tip can't touch paint is correct.

MACROSScolleJOHN8-21-13_zps8892f793.jpg

latest addition is that MPC VF-1J there. it's taken a bit of work to get it to the point where it manages to be halfway respectable

among it's peers there.

for one, there are large metal castings in the lower leg nacelles for no other purpose whatsoever than to add heft.

that surplus weight, coupled with the magnetic locking system for FIGHTER,

meant that FIGHTER was far more floppy and unstable than it had any need at all to be.

therefore, as reassuring as that artificial ballast might be for and old-fashioned metal lover,

those metal castings had to go.

between that, and a an overall refit and joint tightening, the infamous MPC

now actually holds together more like something of a rock

than like the loosey-goosey train-wreck the MPCs have long been infamous for.

it's still a silly looking, half-inspired plagiarism of it's vintage HCM predecessor, and not even quite as good as that low-bar in some ways,

but like the HCM, it somehow just feels right owning one all the same.

by rights, i should next be after the Yammie 1/48 and BANDAI 1/55 reissue of this particular VF-1,

so i can claim ownership of most every meaningful toy iteration ever made in the last 30 years.

the 1/55 reissue i think i can manage down the line a little, the 1/48, however, commands mad money these days,

and probably won't be getting any cheaper any day soon...

Thanks Ozma!

Plastik, is that an Expedit that you have your Detolfs standing on? Is it a 1x4 or 2x4 unit? How's the stability?

Yes its an Expedit 1x5 bookcase. It's very stable and solid although like with all ikea stuff, I wouldn't recommend moving it around too much.

Thank you much! I'm still playing with light angles and getting my set up going. Hopefully my video reviews will be a lot sharper too!

Light-ooohh!

But yeah back to your collection Plastik - I like how you have a lot of room for each piece and a very focused look. Good job!

Man, I had my finger on the button for another one when Yamato reissued these and I hesitated. The next day they were all gone. A second one to pose in fighter would have been good to have (plus I could redo the decals that I effed up on my first one.)

Yeah once my collection feels complete I'll take photos of that.

that's some nice shots. anytime a photo makes me want to break out a valk, it should be in a magazine ad...

I noticed you moved it away from your window side of the room. Looks good! I just got another detolf case this week, and need to put more valks in it. I got the detolf used so it got some scratches on the glass, any tips on removing light scratch on glass?

Yea I moved it to the wall on the right side of the window and got rid of the stuff that was there. Who needs a tread mill anyways... I've heard of people sanding and buffing out scratches using polishing compound but I've never actually done it.

One in every mode is how I roll but I broke that rule since the 171 has a nice lookin fighter mode I had to get another in naked mode.

You're even more anal about one in every mode then I am. I stick to one of each style in every mode. So an S,F,G,R in different modes. Honestly, Macross F made it harder to pull that off since the RVF-25 looks so unique in each of the three modes (plus super packs for all, plus Armor for two, plus Tornado packs for two...)

So does G1 jetfire count as macross here? I've been focusing more on building up my G1 collection lately, but the old Takatoku standby is definitely one of the centerpieces of this collection.

Something about the VF-1, it's classy no matter what you put it with.
