Wow!

This new Max makes Max's 1/60 like a piece of cat poop.  Maybe that's too harsh.  The 1/60 just looks odd now in battroid mode.

Oh and DHL delivered it to the wrong address.  A senior citizen couple that lives next door.

I disagree, i still think they look gorgeous.

I love my Yamarcadia 1/60 more than these Bandai's bricks. I even sold my DX VF-1J and don't regret at all:p

Has anyone tried removing the canopy? That seam in the middle can be easily sanded down if it's removable.

Damn! I wouldn’t have noticed that seam if you hadn’t pointed it out. Now I can’t “unsee” it. Hahaha!

I like the lighting on this one. Nice!

Agreed.. Nice one @Slave IV!

Also happen to think the VF-1 has the best looking gerwalk mode of all valks.

Question for those with the Bandai and also an old yamato 1:48 Would the missiles from the yamato clip on to the Bandai? 

Not natively... Anything can be done through modification.

I think it was determined that they do not work. 

More importantly, I want to know if the Bandai hands fit on Yamato.

Thanks! Lighting is so tough for me and the key to good photography. I’ve been trying some new techniques on these.

Thank you and agree. At least it’s the most iconic.

You need to haggle some magic with FEXTHobby and get your diorama on!

If you gently use a file to enlarge the openings of the yamato missiles they fit just fine. See comparison

Yes, but the missiles from Yamato have to be modified

If they make those translucent roof and wall parts available, I’ll put in an order immediately.

What a badly built toy. If you remove a bunch of screws it just falls apart!

Order cancelled! Oh wait, too late for me. :D

Just curious, has anyone had the wrong shoulder joint issue on their 1A? It doesn't seem very widespread at all but good to know about.

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!!! Nice!

@gerwookie I don't know. It's currently on the shelf and it'll be a bit before I'm up for pulling it down and messing with it. I'll follow up later tonight if no one else answers.

Checked both of mine and no issues.

Haven't seen any reports here either, might be a rare or 1-off issue.

LOL! :rofl:

I'd be concerned if you removed all the screws and it DIDN'T come apart! 

Question.. why are you dismantling it?

I'm guessing prepping it for some necessary paintwork. ^_^ 

Honestly, I think this might be the only Bandai Macross product that can be taken this far apart on purpose.

Got mine from AJ today.  Packaging was pretty lackluster; no packing materials, and the tape was coming open on one side of the box.  The valk box was just kind of sliding around in there...

Contents seems fine, though.  I'll have a chance to open it up and check it out later tonight.
