Global's Pipe Holder (6/15)



  1. Do you mean like a Premium Finish VF-0A? They made a regular VF-0A (shin version) back in 2015. Personally, I'm still holding out hope for a ghost booster bundle of the 0A or 0S (they do have those adapters, after all). But I've been waiting for... a long time.
  2. Kinda indifferent on this. The vf-25 is middle of the road for me in terms of designs I like, but it would be nice to get one I'm less worried about handling (my alto is really showing its age). I might end up getting it just for the "significance" of DX stuff no longer being locked down in Japan, if that in fact happens. It would be great if they re-released super and/or armor parts with this. That would certainly raise my interest.
  3. Filled it out, I'm not super optimistic this will lead to a flood of new Macross products hitting the states, but maybe we'll get some re-releases of stuff (like the three they were pushing for w/e reason). I kept my "what else would you want to see" response to stuff we've seen in some form (HMR detroids and enemy mecha, DX YF-21). Maybe if we keep it more focused and realistic, we'll actually see some of these products released.
  4. Yeah, had the same experience, so it's probably an issue with the design. The little center peg on my crotch armor was too big fit in the hole (that's what she said?), and I had to sand it down a little to actually fit. Had the same arm armor issue, as well. Even the legs took some fiddling to get lined up. This honestly feels like a late-stage pre-production sample that needed another round or two of refinement. Oh well, it looks really good, especially with all the tampo.
  5. Got mine from Okini Land today, couple of group shots. Overall, I like the look, and even the oversized fists are growing on me. To my eye, it looks closer to the actual in-anime look, but maybe that's just me. Biggest negative so far is that just feels... kind of cheap. I was hoping for something more "premium" feeling, like the Yamcadia armor parts. These are thin to borderline flimsy (at least my copy), and putting them on wasn't the smooth experience the yamcadia GBP is. Some parts took more pressure than I thought they should, others felt too thin. If I'm being generous to Bandai, they maybe had to go a little thin to keep overall weight down, but really, I think they could have just used better quality plastic. Still, nothing too bad, and I'm happy with the purchase. It's been a while since I've gotten any new Macross stuff, and I kind of missed it.
  6. DHL has mine from Okini Land. It's supposed to be delivered Friday.
  7. Okini Land sent me a shipping notification for the stand-alone GBP set. Also still waiting for DHL to pick it up.
  8. It depends what you're asking. If you're asking about HM-R macross-specific product, the last release was February 2020. We know they have unreleased Macross designs, but beyond that, we have no real clue whether or not they intend to start making Macross stuff again. Overall, the line is still very much active. There was a release in late May this year, with another slated for November, and one early next year.

    Hi-Metal R

    I believe @jenius had a very similar break on one of the early HMRs. I don't think it's very common, but unfortunately, not unheard of, and just a by-product of X% going to have a flaw in the material. You could try drilling it and pinning it, or maybe even cold weld if you don't plan on handing it much. I know this advice comes too late, but it's generally a good idea to loosen up the shoulders on the HMRs by grabbing them directly at the top of the joint and moving them around a bit first. For whatever reason, the VF-1D seemed to be made especially stiff.
  10. The Tamashii nations site has a complete list of all their DX Chogokin and Hi-Metal R releases. It is kind of weird to use, but once you get used to it, you can see all releases, including release dates, and original MSRP. DX Chogokin Hi-Metal R
  11. I'm in for one, if not that exact version, at least one of the other paint schemes. Is this the exact same mold as the vf-31A? Are there any differences? Do we even know yet?
  12. The link is working for me, and still showing available for pre-order. Not sure what is going on, but I got an order confirmation from Okiniland.
  13. I might try to snag the stand-alone set on the secondary market, after some of the hype has died down. This looks good, but not "must have" level good to me. I like that it has 2 sizes of tv-style hands. Completely swappable head seems like overkill to me, but whatever, I guess it works.
