  1. Oh I'm not arguing it's a viable product lol. Just arguing that size wise it seems more reasonable than it did when the picture first appeared.
  2. At the time that thing felt so enormous and impossible. But now we live in a world with 1/6 scale Batmobiles, Lego Millennium Falcons that you have to build a coffee table around, and 1/4 statues that, with the base and flourishes and posing, are basically the half the size of an adult human. The 1/60 Monster doesn't seem that obscene anymore (or maybe I've just lost my mind).
  3. A 0A PF would be such a dangerous release for me. Have the PF 0D, would probably want the 0A that way, and then my 0S is the odd man out and I'd want it to match the other two. Heaven help me if they figure out a way to PF the 51s.
  4. Apologies to those of you who may have already seen a post about this over on TFW2005, buuuuuuut, this bad boy should be here in (relatively) short order:
  5. The Chosen Prime also has this release up and they don't require the deposit. That's what I went with since, if I happen to change my mind, it's even less hassle.
  6. I didn't snap any pictures since it's nothing people haven't seen a million times before, but my DX 1J showed up yesterday. It was not a cheap piece to re-acquire and to actually ship it just made it worse. That said, when I sat down last night and opened it up, I was immensely more happy with it than I was back on its release. Maybe it's that I'm at the tail end of a SDFM rewatch, maybe it's that I now have a TV Max and know a TV Roy is on the way, or maybe I just have the bug more than I did when the DX line started, whatever the reason, I really love this piece. There's also a special kind of satisfaction in getting something from Mandarake and having it basically be case perfect. Getting to cut the tape on the box for the first time like it hadn't sat on a shelf for a couple years. It made the expense feel even more worth it. My collection, at least when it comes to the original show and DYRL, is really sparse. It consisted basically of a 1/48 Roy and a 1/60 Roy, both from DYRL. Now, to be on my way to having most of the major players in the show represented on a shelf is exciting. Throw in a few Kids Logic character figures and I think I'll have a really nice show setup. Handling these has also really reinforced how much I love this scale. We may never get anything else to match it, but I really like pieces that are this size. I'm not sure Macross collecting has ever felt more satisfying for me than it does right now.
  7. Holding and messing with the DX releases I was, thankfully, never tempted to sell my 1/48 stuff. If anything it just reinforces how good those pieces are. Some proper hands really go a long way on them. It's a shame they Yamato didn't included with every/more release(s) since they existed anyway.
  8. The weathing on that Max is fantastic. *chef's kiss*
  9. I haven't really taken the plunge on the 1/55s, but damn if it doesn't seem like a shame to break up a complete one of these.
  10. I really liked Picard and I'm very excited to see where they take it. Those characters mean a lot to me and it meant a lot to see some of them again. I also like Disco a great deal. About my only complaint with it is that I am really enjoying all the characters and I wish it spread the love out a little more. Season 2 was a bit better in that regard. Even Lower Decks, which I was immensely skeptical about, has been a really fun ride so far. In a format that's half the size of a typical Trek episode, they are giving us some pretty solid stories and giving us time with our cast. But I'm the Trek fan who has been able to find things to enjoy in basically every Trek show and film.
  11. Pretty much how I feel about being a fan of anything these days. It feels even more bile filled than in years passed. I've found my enjoyment of these things is magnified greatly if I don't engage in discourse about it. Which, ultimately, is pretty sad, since I enjoy sharing that enthusiasm with people.
  12. HLJ still has them, if you're looking for the PF that is.
  13. Mannnnn, that came out super great. I'm excited for a set. Since I'm only doing TV DX Valks, my old DYRL Roy has plenty of hand options. It's amazing how much that helps the display of that piece.
  14. 1/48 Hands and side fillers, holy hell. I'd be interested if the 1S doesn't meet Jenius' needs. Actually, eyeballing all the 1/48 stuff.
  15. I'm such a sucker for the TV design of the SDF-1. Which version is this?
  16. I'm starting to be really glad I never threw any money at them for the TV Super Parts.
  17. Until I saw the gears painted, I didn't realize how much of a difference it makes. It's something I never thought I would care about, but I definitely do.
  18. Seeing as how my old 1/48 Roy is in desperate need of some decent hands, this is a great idea! I'll shoot ya a PM when the time comes.
  19. An adapter/replacement part so you can use the DX hands with the old Yammie 1/48?
  20. I tend to prefer canted back, regardless of which model it is. But I think it's doubly true for the S.
  21. Had meant to do this on Monday when it got here, but big thanks to @jeniusornome for the DX VF-1A. It was a super smooth transaction and the package was shipped out really quick.
  22. You and me both. I would love some nice fixed posed hands for a 1/48 yammie.
  23. The posts in the OP reminded me that I'd actually really like the Monster from Macross Zero, complete with the unfolding hands. Maybe not as crazy as some things that could be done, but I thought that thing was super cool.
  24. After having the PF 0D in hand, I think I'd really like to see weathering editions of the 0S and a fixed 0A. They need more than just some tampo no steps to fit in, and the Zero designs lend themselves really well to some weathering. I also hope we see some sort of PF Ivanov and that we get both versions of Nora's 51 released.
