  1. So it looks like Egan Loo at the Macross Compendium is starting g to upload some info for the SV-303 and the VF-31AX Kairos Plus. To add to my previous question, since it seems like they scavenged parts from the Siegfried and the SV-262 Draken III, I wonder if the rail guns were stripped from a SV-262 to “beef” it up. Can’t wait for more official information on these mechs.

  2. Can anyone point me to a nice 1284x2778 wallpaper of the VF-27Beta Commander version (Green) in both battroid and fighter mode.  the only pictures I can find of the green VF-27 are crappy and grainy.  Any help would be appreciated!  Thank You!

  3. Does it not seem odd to anyone else that we have not seen any new information about the mecha from the second Macross Delta movie?  It has been a few months since release and we still don't really have any information.  Even the VF-31AX Kairos Plus, we can only speculate as to what its stats are.  Why are the rail guns beefier?  Are they a larger caliber?  The VF-31A kairos had 27mm railguns, the VF-31 Siegfried had 25mm railguns.  The designation on the guns of the toy lead us to believe it is a LM-25, which is the same as the Siegfried, but why is it so much larger and longer?  

    I am truly curious as to the stats of the SV-303 and how only a YF-29 piloted by Max Jenius has any chance against it?  Are people thinking it is even more powerful than a Earth based VF-24?

    I know this has probably been discussed at length, but man, no info is painful!

  4. looking at the pictures that people are posting of the rail guns on their toys, it seems that there is even more tampo printing on this release as opposed to the VF-31 Siegfried toys they released.  Is the amount of tampo printing significantly increased?  The new details make this toy even more desirable to me now.  Thanks!

  5. so a question to those that may have more knowledge on this.....I am getting a Bandai DX Chogokin VF-25F World Wide Macross release pre-ordered from BBTS.  I know that the release of this toy is April, but realistically, when can it be expected that BBTS will be sending these out?  June?  July?  Through the years on this site, I have heard that it seems that BBTS gets their Japanese items on the back of a donkey, strapped to two steel drums, set adrift into the Pacific ocean, and it might take a long while to arrive.  Didn't know if someone had a better idea.  Thank You!

  6. I would have to say that I would enjoy all five VF-0 variants(6 if you count a Shin custom) plus some SV-51 action as well. I too wish that they would announce release date, preorder and MSRP.

  7. I really like the design, and if I am not mistaken, it appears as if the canopy can open.  If it comes with integrated landing gear and missiles and a stand, this could be a very complete Hi-Metal R package!  I hope that they release more details and dimensions soon!

  8. I am all for encouraging Kitzconcept to further refine their 1/72 VF-1, and would greatly enjoy these readily available, since we are not likely to see Bandai/Arcadia VF-1 designs as part of the World Wide Macross initiative. I would really like to acquire myself the VF-1J Rick and the new VF-1S Fokker custom that should be coming out soon.

  9. I was fortunate to be able to take my two sons with me last night for the viewing. It was amazing to watch Macross Plus in a movie theater in a reclining chair! I also greatly enjoyed meeting up with fellow MWer @M’Kyuun for the show! It was great to meet someone with the same level of passion for the franchise as I have and “talk shop”. Here is to hoping that there are many more opportunities to repeat the experience.

    in agreement with the sentiment that has been going around, the sound mix was different, the subtitles/story were slightly different. But the mecha action was just as great as I remember!  All in all, a great experience, to be sure! Both of my sons enjoyed it greatly.

    Likewise, at least in the Macross and Transformers arena. I have a buddy here who's into LEGO, and we attend LEGO conventions together and encourage each other with our MOCs. But on the robot front, yeah, I have no-one local, so these forums and the TFW forums, tentatively, are my outlets.  I've often wished we lived closer, as like Scyla, I'd love to throw some of my stuff at ya for review, not to mention just to have a local bud to share the hobby with. Between the cost of shipping and the fear that my package will get lost in transit, I've been reluctant to make the offer. I've thought about sending my FT Dinobots your way, but Good God, if those were ever lost I'd be an emotional wreck.  I love those guys, and as much as I'd love to hear your in-hand observations, it's just not worth the risk.

    Skullface is a supremely fortunate dude for all the stuff he gets to handle.  I'd love an in-person opportunity to see a great deal of that stuff, but I don't know of anybody around here that's into it. I'm sure there are nerds here- Spokane's a decent sized city, we have a vintage toy show a couple times a year, there's a vintage toy store (lots of second-hand 80s stuff), and TFs generally, especially Generations figs, don't usually warm the pegs for too long. So, I'm fairly certain there are more like me out there, but there doesn't seem to be a community, at least that I'm aware of, so we're all pretty much just doing our thing solo. AFAIK, I'm the only one from Spokane on here and on the TFW boards. Seattle enjoys a much more robust and enthusiastic following, but Spokane's just a wasteland. :(

    So M'Kyuun, where is the toy shop that you acquire your transformers from?  I have an interest in Transformers, but my son is truly a fanatic when it comes to transformers and maybe taking him to a shop in Spokane so that he could have a selection, other than looking on the interwebs.  

    Thanks in advance!

  11. So, given that we have seen the Bandai Hi Metal R VF-0S shown with a stand, wings with hard points, missiles for the hard points, and what appears to be self contained bay doors for landing gear, how much do you think this release will run? Do people think they are gauging the interest for Macross Zero Hi Metal R toys? Could there be a whole line from Macross Zero to include the destroids from both sides……

    I’m pretty excited and wish they would announce more details along with official word on the possibility of international release.

  12. If my supposition is correct and the Hi Metal R VF-0 toys are designed with integrated landing gears and an articulated air brake, this could be a new turning point for the line. If we got all the VF-0’s and perhaps the SV-51…..I imagine this would sell like hotcakes and directly compete with Arcadia’s offerings.

    realistically, I am not expecting Metal landing gears with rubber wheels, but who knows…..

    I hope I turn out to be correct.

  13. I did see that. It also looks like the landing gear bay doors open and the air brake opens as well. I am hopeful, but am just happy at the prospect of Bandai making this and other Macross Zero Variable Fighter and even destroids for those destroid lovers

  14. Is it me, or does that thing look to be the size of a Arcadia 1/60 VF-1 toy? Is it possible that given the size, we might get integrated landing gear? It also appears that the air brake might be articulated. I have high hopes for the Hi Metal R VF-0S Focker Use! Wish they would correctly transform it on that stand!
