  1. Appreciate the feedback; basically figured it out on my own, well on my way to acquiring and building rank 3 Blueprints. Even built quite a few of the rank 2 planes my first go around that I couldn't use unless by the Valkyrie's designated pilot. What if any bonus's are attributed to blue-prints built using "model specific" parts? I've seen some variances in total HP or weapon capacities increasing but nothing that had made me go Unit 1= built with junk parts VS. Unit 2= built with bonus parts only.
  2. The first sits up there with Equalibrium on my Action Surprise's list; know ideal how they plan to try and top the church fight scene though.
  3. Hopefully, the newer Bandai Deculture kit's water-slide decals will almost seamlessly fall into place on this kit; will ditch the knighted reaper for real deal however.
  4. I have purchased all "Walkure" albums, 3 thus far; there are more songs or repeats rather on the actual Delta soundtrack releases as well. The Earth, Wind,&Fire (Dancing in September) sampled version of the #10 track on the album Attack is the only song I'm aware of that Victor Entertainment is not actively protecting, guess they are leaving that up to the elements on this side of the pond.
  5. I would agree with you; Frontier's actual musical arrangement/instrumentals are on a higher level than Delta's, though that's easily explained with who the composer was for a vast majority of Frontier's music. Given that Delta's whole presence is POP I've been pleasantly surprised with the various musical influences that they managed to weave into the music. Their latest CD has two new tracks that are not on any of the other CD's or show; one is heavily influenced with a Jazz feel, though the intro is homage to the classical Attack Of TheWalkure song. There is also a cover of Sheryl's "Long Long Goodbye" by Mikumo; after hearing it, I really wanna see May'n and Junna duet this song together. Kaname does finally have a Giraffe Blues solo and there is a track of Walkure prior to Freya and Mikumo with Kaname as lead (as seen in the show).
  6. I thought the news of Honda buying out Ferrari was better! Actually had hopes for the F1 season for a brief second.
  7. GM mecha gray or GM13 works well for all the underside parts that need "touched up". Sharpie's Magenta paint pen matched really well to Mirage's color; their blue not so much with Hayate though it will work if the lack of color/detail drives one crazy. Messer's is easy but I haven't had any luck matching Moulder's.
  8. Deculture kits before Chuck, what gives? Dang it, it had to be a good mix of Hayate/Messer's paint schemes, not digging the covered up Grim Reaper or Freya Decals though.
  9. Just started playing this past weekend, made it up to 2-4; throughly enjoying it. My question is in regards to building the Plans; to this point I've used only parts worth 1pt to build, saving any and all multi-pt parts for later builds. Starting to get to the point where doing so wipes out all the single pt parts acquired. Or did you mean to use the least amount of total parts to build a plan, meaning if you can spare a 6pt part, go ahead a do so?
  10. I figured since she showed Hayate her hand; he pretty much said "Time for a normal life" or as normal as it gets for a Windmerian. If they do bring her back she will only once again have to strain herself in order to save the galaxy; maybe Mirage wins due to Freya's DNF. Either Ranka or Sheryl could fill the missing spot in Walkure; Sheryl doesn't strike me as "plays well with others" when trying to share the spotlight, however the "Who's the bigger Diva" between her and Mikumo could make it interesting. Ranka best fits in role and matches along with Freya's cuteness. Either way Alto or Ozma joins Delta; "Who's Skull leader now"?
  11. Seems I'm the odd ball around here, as I like the 1/72 transformable kits, have them all except for the Deculture versions, Tornado, and Armored versions of the VF-25. Brera's Vf-27 has been the only one that hasn't wanted to stay-put in battroid mode, that has been remedied. Granted the Strike/Super Parts backpack attachments for the VF-1 is a joke even compared to Toynami's 1/100 line; still Hikaru's 1S wears them w/o glue or tape and still balances on his own. Bandai has certainly made progress as this line continues, the VF-31 and SV-262 both shine above what has previously been released; IMO.
  12. Figured they were going to follow suit as with their mecha line. Bogue's would be a single with two more following with the choice of pilot markings. The twins blue hues seems so close as to almost allow for a single purchase and just go half/half with the design, maintaining a 5 on 5 ratio. Here they seem to have left out one of the twins unless they share crests, which makes sense if it does denote family and not squardron. Starting to wonder if I shouldn't add at least one more to the warehouse now.
  13. Just make it a "Top Gun"/"Ace of Aces" school. The different aces from the various fleets allow for multiple Valkyrie models and just interject the series with songs from the past idols, while possibly introducing a new "break out" artist if the need is so great. Edit: Whoever the main pilot ends up being can just have the "Iron Eagle/Doug McMaster's" radio taped to the leg; ipod/mp3 player now or whatever the future holds.
  14. Seems incredibly high to me but...https://www.amazon.com/Toynami-Robotech-Anniversary-Sterlings-Transforming/dp/B00S8E2IDM/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1489704050&sr=8-11&keywords=1%2F100+toynami+max
  15. My mistake, I thought those were transformable.
  16. Price is a little high but they packaged as Macross and not that other show, plus there is an official Kakazaki. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toynami-Macross-Robotech-SuperPoseable-Set-Of-5-Valkyries-Limited-Edition-/142279661682?hash=item2120875872:g:bWwAAOSw7ehXTMux I just bought two Max's and painted him to Kakazaki's color or as close I could find.
  17. Appreciate the link; I have one on back order already. Haven't seen it change status in the few months I've been aware of it. Was hoping to find one perhaps a little sooner. Again Thanks!
  18. As stated in the title, looking for a Bandai 1/72 Alto-Tornado kit. I don't mind paying a little over MSRP but what I'm seeing on ebay just isn't going to happen. If anyone has one or knows of one hovering just under a bill, please let me know.
  19. I deal with the front page every time I visit here; I scroll to the link for the forum and might glance at the most recent posted photo, but basically pay it no attention anyway!
  20. Both well said! (Except the M7 stuff, but I know I'm an outcast there. Basara is just nails on a chalk board for me EXCEPT Angel Voice.)
  21. So while replaying "That show that can't be mentioned" Battlecry recently, I was selecting my VF and skipped right over the 1S to the 1R. A 1A based unit but with either a reworked head or just fixed antenna on either side. Stats showed that it had the least amount of armor out of any version I'm aware of CATS-eye/AWACS withstanding, it could track and fire on just about as many targets as a J, can't recall the other two stats at the moment. I figured this was a creation of the game in order to try and make the game just a little more difficult for the aces out there. Later on that same day/night while watching Macross yet again, but in English this time, there is actually a good close-up of an VF-1R pretend hand-to-hand fighting with a Zentradi, just before it then shows three 1A's doing the very same and then the ambush really kicks off. So I stand corrected it is/was an actual production VF, what purpose was it designed for? Or was this just a mistake in the anime that has since gained traction? On a side note, has any company made a toy or model in any scale? My search turned up nothing.
  22. In the original opening sequence there is a point where we see a VF-1 firing its rifle, casings are ejecting in what appears to be a "burst" mode and not full-auto, three shells with the same distance between them but a slightly larger gap between shots 3-4,6-7 and so on. Then late into the series we see a VF-1 light a cigarette for a Zentradi with a single shot. Obviously the rifles are using a rotating barrel mechanism allowing a faster and more sustained fire rate but the mechanism shouldn't have a noticeable reset. Are the rifles "selective firing" weapons, if so how is this achieved, remotely or a physical switch on the weapon that just hasn't made the anime's, toys and models? What caliber's have been used? I'm going to assume, this could end badly, that the reason "traditional" firearms are still used is due to energy weapons requiring longer cool-down times, heavy fuel cells/capacitors to power them and simple lack of rate-of-fire? Why else maintain the Monster with "traditional" artillery shells.
