  3. If you watched Lost and did not like how it ended....then apply how you felt at the conclusion of Lost and decide whether or not to invest your precious time on GoT... Lost basically taught me to simply walk away if a show stops being good....I did that with TWD....unfortunately, GoT was so good up until the final season that I felt compelled at that point to continue watching the train wreckfest...
  4. https://www.kitzconcept.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=100 It's a shame that KC finally got this toy to more or less stay together in the modes that were the biggest problems, gerwalk and battroid....then fudged up fighter mode and didn't bother to redesign that modes biggest problem....the ginourmous intakes... The completist beast within is telling me that two modes out of three ain't that bad....
  5. So in case anyone was wondering....KC will be releasing the Super VF-1S Rick Hunter "bundle" as a V2.5 and will be including a set of V1 Fast Packs....meaning the packs will not be able to be mounted properly in Fighter mode....gerwalk and battroid modes should not have an issue locking their fast pack armor in place due to the V2.5 leg tab placements...but the arms will not be able to be properly held in place by the leg tabs with the arm packs mounted while in fighter mode...they will just hang on via friction and a prayer..... This is terrible, of course....so I am hoping they will be able to modify the fast packs to work with their badly redesigned leg tabs by the time they get to the M & M Super -1Js
  6. Original Masami Watanabe Macross illustration....415,000 jpy https://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/auction/item/itemInfoEn.html?index=681430 I guess we can now officially say these prices are no longer a fluke limited to just one auction venue... And more importantly, why has there never been an illustration book of Masami Watanabe's collected works....a real shame, IMHO his work is just as iconic as those of Takani and Susuki, in terms of the illustrations used for Macross merchandising during the SDFM/DYRL era
  7. Masami Watanabe hand-drawn color illustration "Super Dimension Fortress Macross" Valkyrie....415,000 JPY https://ekizo.mandarake.co.jp/auction/item/itemInfoEn.html?index=681430
  8. "Preorder yours before closing date to raise your chance to get this item" LOL....so they'll keep taking PO's without knowing if they can be fulfilled? At least they are warning you!
  9. I like the Avatar ride at WDW more than the actual movie....maybe the sequel will mean some sequence updates to the ride
  10. Looks like most US retailers so far are offering it at $249.99...only difference seems to be shipping cost, taxes, and upfront deposit amounts... KappaHobby still seems to have their PO available at $225.88 shipped and no tax (except CA) if anyone is still on the fence.... https://www.kappahobby.com/products/dx-chogokin-yf-29-durandal-valkyrie Hope they do not take in more POs than they can fulfill...
  11. Dunno....I mostly enjoy the art!
  12. hope they'll toss in a few pages on the SV-303.....really liking the gimmicky look of it.....looking forward to it DX release, hopefully as a WWM
  13. $22 is pretty reasonable.....I'll probably go with that Still, I am hoping for them to just clarify what exactly we will be getting with the TV Super VF-1S bundle
  14. Anyone else get emailed by KC regarding the 1/72 Super VF-1S TV "Rick Hunter"? I responded by asking whether or not the set will include the V2.5 VF-1 with the new leg tabs and a set of V2.0 Fast Packs, since the V1.0 Fast Packs are not compatible with the VF-1 V2.5.....waiting for reply TBH, I would prefer they would have went back to the original mold used for the V2.0 VF-1J Hikaru, but I think they are doubling down on their leg tab blunder...releasing V1.0 Fast Packs with the upcoming 1/72 Super VF-1S TV Hikaru bundle will just add insult to injury IMO
  15. After the Heritage Auction final auction prices...this just seems "normal" now
  16. Nice to be able to order this via Amazon.jp....unlike some of the other recent book releases Looking forward to the art
