What will Hasegawa do next?

Recommended Posts

... and Hasegawa just destroyed each and every production forecasting attempt on this topic. Two Delta Movie's birds now on queue !

Hmmm.... I guess I'm fine with this if the VF-31F can optionally be built as standard VF-31F.

Yes, it can be built as the standard -31F, according to Hasegawa.

I'm guessing that Ba is a fantasy machine? Or was it in the series and I missed it?

It's from the movie, same with the VF-31 w/ Drakkens.

I happen to like this config. Can't wait for Hasegawa to post the pictures of the assembled model.

I DO find it odd that Hasegawa is doing these before a regular VF-31F, VF-31S, VF-31E... oh well. And no Hasegawa supers yet either.

There wasn't any VF-31F released by Hasegawa if I'm not mistaken. Maybe this release will give you option to have a regular 31F or one with Lil Draken attached to it. But at the end of the day, this is just basic business strategy 101. People seems to like what they saw in the movies, making those Bandai custom kits and make their own. Why not join the bandwagon, correct? Same goes with Bandai. It took them months before they finally decided to announce a DX VF-31S. And this is months after DX VF-31J Kai. ^_^

I'm already planning on buying 2 of the VF-31F w/ lil Drakken. One to be built as shown in the artwork and one to do as a standard VF-31F.

If they go and release a vanilla VF-31F later... my 2 VF-31F w/ lil Drakken can be done as Messer w/ lil Drakken and Hayate w/ lil Drakken versions.

Considering that Hasegawa did a vanilla AND super kit for all 4 VF-25s from Frontier, I'm hopeful that they'll complete the VF-31 lineup. They seem to be taking their time though...

Normal VF-31F, VF-31S, and VF-31E later hopefully. Can't see why they'd skip them...

And then supers.

And then armored!

please release armoured and/or super packs as separate items in future Hasegawa, for me? While you're at it, how about some more Macross weapons and pylons in general! Take My Money!!!

Or at least have the heart to include multiple head options in the Super/Armoured kits @KOG Water Dragon just mentioned?

I'm not buying all of Delta platoon again just to get some superpacks... but if they released a Armoured/Super-31A...

But but but....

New kits for the VF-31 supers (instead of a generic super pack kit to be combined with the already available base kits) means more sweet box art. Don't we want more sweet box art?

In any case, I always like to be able to do a set of variants in basic config, and a set in super or armored mode. So I'll be buying 2 sets of each fighter no matter what...

nah, I'll take some strike and armoured packs, then they can repop the '31A again.

 

Besides, I'm collecting the Tenjin artbooks, so I'll get the boxart either way!:D;)lol

If they don't do kits of the supers, there won't be artwork of the super versions to put in the artbooks... :p

Ah well, we can't miss out on something that never existed I guess, eh?...:D

best of both worlds if they release delta platoon in supers, and armours, then put out just the packs.

That would be great... but doesn't seem likely since Hasegawa has never sold standalone super packs in the past. Only Bandai has done that. The closest Hasegawa got was with the VF-1 weapon packs.

WOW! Great work! :o:wub:

Those are official product pics. ;)

Though yes, even so that's a great build.

...makes me wonder what happens to those kits used for promo pictures. Hasegawa should have Tenjin or Kawamori sign the base and sell them for a premium. I'd be first in line for some of them, no doubt about it.

I happen to like the vinyl backdrop used by Hasegawa for the official product photoshoots, it provides a good contrast and highlights details..... wonder where I could get one of those.

I bet those signatures would make the price tag soar higher than the DX items :)

Best info I have on hand is the VF-0 Master File. This one belongs to the Space Proving Wing, but there were other serial numbers assigned to combat squadrons, probably on the roles you mentioned. Long range interception is another mission I've always envisioned a tandem seater for. Although the fact of the Phoenix being powered by two EGF-127s, purebred gas guzzlers, can be considered a major drawback for long-range missions (unless there's an available refueling spot every 5 or 6 miles  ;) ).

I'd like to see them do a 1/32 big scale Valkyrie from the original series.....make that a Super Valk!

Why do 1/32 Super VF-1, when there's already a 1/20 Super/Strike VF-1? :rolleyes:
