  1. I'll give this a try tonight when I get home, but don't have high expectations.

    I've also always though that the Jedi are the least interesting thing about Star Wars.

    For me, the animated shows, Clone Wars, Rebels, Bad Batch & Tales of the Empire are my favorites outside of the original trilogy and prequel trilogy. I also really liked The Mandalorian season 1.

    However, I  disliked Obi Wan and Ahsoka & Book of Boba Fett. Thought  Mando seasons 2 and 3 were just so so.

    Unpopular opinion, but I found Andor extremely boring and struggled to get thought it. I actually fell asleep several times during episode 5 or 6 and eventually gave up. altogether and never finished it.

    Funny detail from the official decals on the VF-19, a fully legible Fire Bomber setlist on the wing. 


    Missing my favorite Fire Bomber song, Diamond Calling.

    That's confusing given it was already on Grahams disc.  Maybe the digital version doesn't include that stuff?  Or Switch version doesn't on disc?

    Yeah, 100% confirm the game as installed from the physical PS4 disc version of Macross Shooting Insight, which I ordered from Amazon JP, includes Hikaru and his DYRL VF-1S.

    I installed the game while logged into my Hong Kong Playstation account,

    I did not download or install any DLC, as there is no Macross content on the Hong Kong Playstation store......certainly Macross Shooting Insight is not on the Hong Kong Playstation online store.

    While I think I do have an old Japanese Playstation account, I haven't logged into it for years, probably since the PS3 Macross 30 days, or Maybe when I had the PS Vita Macross Delta Scramble game,,,,,,I forget???? Not even sure I still remember the password for my Japanese Playstation account, it's been so long.

    Got my standard version PS4 game yesterday from Amazon JP, without any of the extra stuff. So no booklet etc.

    Is there really any extra DLC available at the moment???????

    After installing the game last night from the disc on my HK Playstation account, it already includes Hikaru's DYRL VF-1S.






  5. Here's a question..........

    So, I've already had the Japan version of Macross Shooting Insight for PS4 pre-ordered for a long time.

    But, I also want to order the physical international PS4 version. Any links to where I can order it? Preferably somewhere that will ship here to Hong Kong where I live.

    I had assumed that Hong Kong physical game shops and also the Hong Kong Playstation online Store would be getting the international version, but seems like we are not getting it here due to some licensing related issues, at least according to some local game shop staff here that I've spoken to.

    So, I'm suddenly scrambling to find a way to order a physical copy of the international PS4 version.

    I've done a Google search and looked on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk, but I'm not seeing it. Or at least it's not showing up when my address is set to Hong Kong.



  6. I've always thought calling the VB-6 a "Variable Bomber" is kinda silly as it doesn't carry any bombs, so can't drop any bombs.

    If you are going to keep the "VB" designation, it would make more sense to call it a "Variable Bombarder", as it's basically a highly mobile artillery piece that solves the problem of the extremely limited mobility and speed of the original Destroid Monster, by being able to rapidly fly to any point required in the battle space in a short period of time.

    Thus making the VB-6 much more tactically relevant and useful compared to the original Destroid Monster.

    YES 100%  Something we haven't seen before would have made me jump on this, but I'm happy with my 1/60 v2 version of this for now.


    I got rid of most of my Yamato V2s years ago, so I'm super excited about this Bandai 1/48 VT-1 DX.

    Got 2 on pre-order.

  8. Picked up my 2 yesterday from my local Valk pusher.

    Only opened one so far and not yet transformed.

    I just put it on the display stand  in fighter mode so far without the super parts attached. I only attached the missiles and the gunpod. Missiles attached very tightly to the wing hard points, which is a good thing in my opinion.

    No obvious issues, apart from the rubber head lasers are not straight. But that's normal and anyway it comes with a spare hard plastic set.

    But I've only spent about 10 minutes with it so far, so there may be hidden issues. 

    Happy to report the wing pegs didn't pop off in the short time I handled it....LOL.

    Can't stop humming everytime I see the SDF-1...




    If Bandai make the SDF-1 TV version toy, then the shoulder rail guns better be able to hinge downwards in Cruiser mode, so I can recreate the iconic Yoshiyuki Takani art. 😅

    This is probably my all-time favorite piece of his artwork. 


  10. While I'd love a Bandai DX VF-11B Super, VF-11C Super and VF-11C Full Armored, I think the chance is very small.

    Somewhat more realistically (maybe 😅), I'm hoping for at least a few of the following to be released by Bandai in 2024:

    • DX 1/60 VF-31AX Arad.
    • DX 1/60 VF-31AX Chuck
    • DX 1/60 Tornado Pack Reissue for VF-25F Alto.
    • DX 1/60 Tornado Pack Reissue for VF-25G Michael.
    • DX 1/60 VF-25S Ozma Reissue with Armored pack.
    • DX 1/60 SV-303 Vivasat (one can hope). ❤️
    • HMR Destroid Tomahawk.
    • HMR Destroid Phalanx.
    • HMR Nousjadeul-Ger (DYRL version). 
    • HMR VF-17S and VF-17D (my favorite VF from 1994 to 2008).
    • DX 1/48 VT-1 Super Ostrich.
    • DX 1/48 VE-1 Elint Seeker.
    • DX 1/48 VF-1A Cannon Fodder,
    • DX 1/48 VF-1A Hikaru (DYRL).
    • DX 1/48 VF-1A or S Max (DYRL).
    • DX 1/60 YF-30 Chronos Reissue (mine became so yellowed 😭).
    • DX 1/60 VF-22S Max.
    • DX 1/60 SV-262Hs Mirage or Bogue Red Knight.


  11. I've still got a couple of Yamato Tomahawks (the original release and the green one), which are still fine and not broken. So the Arcadia is an easy pass for me.

    But yeah, also hoping that Bandai eventually releases an HMR Tomahawk.

    Of course. 

    Expect only the head and colour to differ. 

    As someone who studied the lineart extensively back in mid-90s when Plus and 7 came out (and also from my many discussions with Yamato, back when I was friends with the CEO), from what I remember, it's pretty much nearly every part of the VF-19Kai/F/S/P that is different from the YF-19. You cannot reuse the same molds/tooling.

    From what I remember, it's maybe only the hands, biceps and feet that are similar (and the gunpod for the F, S & P). Every other part requires completely different tooling.

    Basically, there is very little comonality between the YF-19 and VF-19Kai/F/S/P.

    I got my Kakizaki in the mail yesterday.  I specifically did NOT request that signature confirmation be skipped after reading the fine print saying that if you do, DHL is not responsible for any shipping damage.  They tossed it on my porch and ran anyway, lol.  No damage tho.

    I am a bit disappointed in quality on this one.  I was compelled to get out the ol' zacto to correct a few issues.  But hey, at least it comes with a proper stand adapter for fighter mode!   But it still doesn't fit. 


    After some back cutting on the attachment clips:




    Also, the tail wings don't seat properly in fighter (either side), one knee cap never closes properly, and the gaps are horrible:




    Unboxed and transformed my Hi-Metal R VF-1A Kakizaki yesterday.

    Happy to report, none of the problems reported in the above post. Mine fits together fine.
