Cannon Fodder

Cannon Fodder (1/15)



  1. Hi all- I'm reducing the price yet again- $60 shipped in the USA. My ebay ID is: jonathanhc1976 and I have a 100% approval rating.
  2. Hi all, I'm looking to fund a scale model project and I'm going to see if anyone wants to adopt one of my Hi-Metal Hikaru's. It has NOT been transformed, though the box has been opened for inspection- I open every box and look over every Valk I get (I learned the hard way from my first V2.0 VF-1S that arrived with a cracked shoulder). The price is $65 (PayPal only) shipping included, anywhere in the USA via USPS. PM or email me if you are interested. I can provide images if needed. Thanks! Jon

    1/48 VF-1J Max

    Thanks ae- that's exactly what I needed to hear. My Stealth Type is pretty solid and makes for a great Valk to pose. Truth be told, it is more durable and I think easier to transform than any of my V.2 1/60's.
  4. I'm wondering too- pretty much sitting on pins and needles. Honestly, the DN YF-19 is pretty damn good to me as far as articulation and transformation, my toy's joints are doing amazingly well. I do transform a lot. What I'd like to see is the mold lose a few pounds visually. The nose and main body just seem either a touch too short which makes it look fat in the neck or it's too fat in the neck making it look short. I'm not sure which one, but visually that's how it looks to me. Either way. . . I'll buy it. Hook, line, and sinker, yessiree.

    I think the deal is too good to pass up. Seeing as they have the 1/48 VF-1J Hikaru reduced as well- any surprises with that mold? I do swoop these around the house and hate floppy fighter modes.
  6. After playing with my VF-1J for a few days I can say that I am pretty amazed that everything is tight and goes together well. At this scale I didn't expect the quality. AWESOME job Bandai.

    Question- Any issues with this Valk? I have no idea what release it is. My Stealth Type is pretty close to perfect and I'm wondering if those improvements were also made to this Valk. I'd like to grab him at that price, maybe even Miria as well, as I have neither. Most of my Valks are 1/60 scale. Matter of fact, the Stealth Type is the only 1/48 I have. I just wasn't sure of their durability. Speaking of which, how are the 1/48's holding up? Thanks everyone.
  8. Hell yes I'd buy one. Like has been mentioned before, it's one of the better looking Valks, both in Battroid and Fighter mode. As much as I would love to have a VF-0D, the VF-4 is much more likely to happen. 2012 is a ripe opportunity for this Valk to make its grand appearance, though I'd much rather see it sooner.
  9. I never noticed the difference- how do you know that you are getting the proper version? I do like the coloration on the standard YF-19, though I always thought that the off-white color was too off-white. If they improved that color version, I'd most certainly get one. I'd like to get a new one as the joints on the DN are much improved and really lifted my opinion of the YF. I'm now thinking I might grab the BoP, not a huge fan of orange but I got to see one in the flesh and honestly, it looked pretty good.

    Me too, man, me too. If I can't have a 1/60th scale, I would certainly be fine with a Hi Metal version. Too bad it's not as likely as I had hoped.
  11. How are everyone's front fuselage paint apps holding up? Anyone used any kind of gloss coat to preserve it yet?

    Complete agreement- I thought the -0 and the -0D were excellent looking, the SV-51 was very unique among the Macross designs. Consider it marked. I hope this is true as I just got my first Hi-Metal VF and am REALLY happy with it. Time will tell, but for now I am really pleased with the sculpt and articulation.

    I searched for, but didn't see any threads that already existed but I'm sure this question has to have been asked before: Is there any chance that we could see a 1/60 VF-0D from Yamato? I just bought the Hasegawa 1/72 kit and literally, I think this is such a great looking plane, IMHO- better than the -0A. Anyways, it's Friday and I would rather be home playing with my Valk's.
  14. I've had mine for about 6 months and couldn't be happier. Joints are still tight and everything still looks good. I love the paint scheme. Excellent purchase! It's a better Valk than the original that Yamato put out.
