  1. I think it's cool that there are more companies tackling Macross products, but this is looking pretty rough. At least they seem to keep the lines of communication open. I guess the VF-1 Valkyrie is just very difficult to get right. Lotta nuance in the design.

    Hi-Metal R

    And the rest of the SDFM TV Valks please?
  3. Same here. I've already heard about some breakages. Not dropping the cash if it's gonna explode in my hands.
  4. These pics are wonderful. Only problem is my inner nerd is screaming, "AAARRRRGGHHH!! SUNLIGHT!! GET 'EM OUTTA THERE, NOW!!!!"
  5. That looks like a great one-off piece. I really like the deco they chose for it. I'm mainly a fan of the VF-1 (I know, I know. Boring) but I might pick up that VF-25 Anniversary Valk just for the colors and the Skull insignia. I would love to see the DX VF-1 Valks offered domestically but something tells me that most of the people who want those will already have them by the time that happens, if it does. Oh well. As long as the ball is rolling for Macross toys here in the U.S., I'm happy. Gosh, it's been an incredibly long time coming.
  6. When are we gonna be able to buy Macross toys here in the United States without having to import? Has anything changed on that front?

    Hi-Metal R was going to be my "affordable" Macross fix, too. Yeesh.
  8. Eh, I dunno if I would expect it to be even close to decent scale. Just something under five hundred bucks preferably. Reasonable size, transforms, TV accurate deco. I'd be happy.
  9. Nah, I'm gonna keep it to TV Valks only, to minimize the impact on my finances. I'll be happy with the three main aces of SDFM and the training Valk seen in the opening episodes. Gosh, even just four of these things is already over a grand. I can't afford this stuff, but I buy it anyway. I'm definitely not in the high rollers club here, heh. I do enjoy the pics, though. Pic credit goes to Saburo. Thanks!
  10. I would very much enjoy a Soul of Chogokin TV SDF-1.
  11. I have to admit: I really loved these awful bootleg-level Valkyrie toys. As a young child they were my first Macross toys. I wanted the real deal 1/55 Takatoku VF-1S of course, which wouldn't be in my grubby little hands until years later. But until then, these craptastic dollar store VF-1 figures were as awesome as my imagination could make them. That being said, my imagination had to work some killer overtime.
  12. Thanks! To keep this on-topic, thanks to yman1437, I now have Max's TV VF-1A. He joins Focker's TV VF-1S. Just need Hikaru's VF-1J and that'll be it for me. Well, I do kinda want the VF-1D. So my humble collection of DX Valkyries will be just those four, but I'll be very pleased to finally have them on my shelf.
  13. We're old. But it's nice to be old with a bunch of fellow Macross fans.
  14. So which accounts were compromised in the For Sale and Trade section? I missed the second one, I think.
  15. How many of y'all still have your custom SDF Macross DVD cases by Paul Champagne Designs? There's a blast from the past, heh. I still have mine.

    Still waiting for TV VF-1S Roy, TV Max and TV Kakizaki VF-1As and.. the last two Destroids. Figuarts has a prime opportunity to make Zentran/Meltran soldiers to go against the Valks, too. An SOC TV SDF-1 would be fantastic.
  17. Speaking of Sideswipe, he was my first regular-sized Autobot car figure. I don't have the G1 toy anymore, but these are pretty good..
  18. Hot Rod looks so much better with a few decals from Toyhax. I only used the ones I thought were the most important for him to have.
  19. I gave up collecting Masterpiece Transformers when they shifted to the full toon design aesthetic. I didn't want a shelf full of mismatched figures and they were becoming more and more expensive. My breaking point was when I realized that I wasn't enjoying them because I was worried about breaking a very expensive toy because of whatever issues it may have had, or having to set aside a half an hour to transform them because of how over-engineered they'd become. I was in denial for a while since I was pretty well invested in the line, but I just wasn't having fun. They're great display pieces, but not really fun to handle. I've since switched over to main line Transformers figures. Between Siege, Earthrise, Kingdom and Studio Series 86 I'll soon have the collection I'd been trying to build with Masterpiece figures. I can forgive a lot more at mass retail price points. So far, so good.

    Hi-Metal R

    We need a TV Roy, Max and Kakizaki. Was really hoping for some Zentran and Meltran footsoldiers too.
  21. Don't have nearly the photography skills as some of our other esteemed members, but pretty stoked to have these guys...
  22. The game that CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 is based on was created in 1988, twelve years before Deus Ex was released. Cyberpunk and Cyberpunk 2077 aren't the first games in the genre, but they certainly aren't the newest Deus Ex. The people who've been waiting for Cyberpunk 2077 are anxious because the game has been in development for seven years by a very well-regarded developer and they've been wanting a video game version of Cyberpunk, the tabletop RPG. Then there's the fans of the genre in general. Whatever the case, lots of people have been waiting a very long time for this one. Check it out!
