  1. I believe thats whats going to happen.... I just remember many ozmas sold, and the armor parts in limited numbers sold out in minutes and resell prices skyrocketing. Plus the arad custom is a "pass" for many, unless hooked by the armored set. Anyway happy hunting to all
  2. Bandai! Do it a bundle! And dont make it a tamashi exclusive, lottery, or whatever great idea you can think of! We want a bundle mass produced in enough quantities for preorder and general sale, so everyone of us can have his armored vf31 S!!!!!!!!
  3. Im so glad since I was never able to find an sv 51!!!
  4. Dont worry, consider them as battle damage.
  5. Just remember, that vf 171 also comes with the armor parts which for me is a better treat than a drakken w missile pods, ghosts and a sword. Anyway, both are nice valks so any choice here is a good choice.
  6. This debate about good idea / bad idea PMC put me thinking quite a bit. In my honest opinion the idea of having elite contractors is always very merchandable. Its cool to be rogue, to be independent, to rebel, and shoot then ask questions. Also independent military contractors are not subject to military regulations, so it makes sense that every member had its own custom scheme. The Frontier PMC main heroes were a nice twist from previous Macross entrances. I guess it allowed the characters to have a deeper identity on the field, vs being a soldier where obeyng commands is to be expected no matter what. I also enjoyed that they made very clear that the SMS would stand only for the highest bidder... so they getting the big guns before the NUNS made sense. That gets me into asking how PMC would be a hit in the Macross universe? Mi only answer is that human colonies have a small population, and are very scarce on military resources. Its a civil colony focused on discovering new planets, not invading or subduing. With the last, military overpower is not a priority, so their numbers are short, and any extra "help" is welcome. Enter the PMC who can easily move from one system to another as they are required, and who are cheaper to hire, than maintain a whole fix war fleet. That would be my only quick explanation for the need and succes for space mercenaries. For Delta I think you guys covered it pretty much... I would only point out the fact of six singers in PMC. How about a story where an elite PMC squad must compete vs an elite NUNS squad? a battle of skill, egos, tons of valk action and a singer here and there...
  7. Hey guys! With this new movie do you think we'll ever see a bandai vf 22?? Similar to what happened with the vf 19 in wings of goodbye. I hope they release it since I would like to own a vf 22.
  8. Oooh be careful with those cracks. Mine broke exactly at the right intake because of the stress at that particular point. It is strange bandai chose soft plastic for a piece that is that thin and is key to keep the leg attached. I was able to fix it but it was very tricky because in fighter the tolerances are zero. If not aligned properly leg, wing, lower and upper intake will never fit. Carefully Apply a thin layer of super glue so carcks dont get bigger.
  9. Yes, ill wait for my supplier to have it physically in stock. Though he charges me a little fee, I prefer it this way because i hate dealing with the mail services, e-stores, etc. Plus, even when the Kai is super sweet, there are other valks that are more treasured.
  10. Both are very nice. I guess I will be at peace when i get both... or the three!! I need that yamato for nostalgia purposes xD
  11. I only have the bandai, which is a great valk, lots of clever tweaks, great lines and everything is painted. About the advance pack... the boosters fall so easy that it frustrates me. I prefer yamato / arcadia over bandai. The yf 19 has a gorgeous wingspan, and is bigger. About its defects i only display my valks in fighter so I dont really mind its defects.
  12. It looks kind of rushed... but it feels bandai has been influencing macross to design as many new valks as possible Yf 29, vf 19 advance, yf 30 just to sell, sell, sell. Maybe we wont have a new valk but a modded vf 31... Those guys hunger for our money and wallets that im sure they will release something... even a quick repaint.
  13. Similar story: last year I got home to find that the tip that is right in front of the cockpit of my yf 30 was no longer pointy but flat... and that day my cleanning service were at home. It was pretty obvious that accidentally they dropped it. I was able to put some epoxy and restore the pointy shape, but the heavy heart of a damaged valk never goes away. Cleanning service will never be careful with collectibles. Thats a fact. The only thing that has worked is telling them never clean this area and never get close to it, and then I clean it. You can use some "fragile" or "do not clean" signs on cleanning days, and remove them after theyre gone. If after that, they keep breaking stuff then you might consider changing personnel. Sorry to hear this happened to you cause it sucks. Hope this was the last time you have to go through this.
  14. That 31a is a sweet piece of lethal machinery. Im not sure if previous regular variants were so much anticipated. If you ask me, the A could have been a great squadron commander version.
  15. Its not related. In that I agree that there is not a right way to choose valks. We just get the ones we like, whether its show related or just the looks. My point is more oriented towards Bandai... why must Hayate be so idolized to justify a super exclusive custom?? Or is it that maybe they think demand wont be enough to release it for general sale?? Again, im not judging anyones likes.
  16. Idk guys.... besides the Kai being a highly collectable figure... do you really miss it for what hayate represents in macross history?? Most of the time I remember him falling victim of the circumstances, caught in himself, wondering about who knows. I'll credit his above average skills... but imo he's got to thank Roid's treason for causing Keith's dead. Otherwise he would be Messer 2.0.
  17. Wow! I was much unaware of most about the windermereans. I'll have to rewatch and pay more attention about their background. Thanks for the additional info. But still I find it difficult to sympathize with their cause and means. Causing secretly innocents "to VAR" and plan civilian attacks... does not sound very "knightly" or rightgeous. Anyway, I'm open to reconsider. It would be great the movie to deal the conflict fully from the windermere side.
  18. These Windermereans are the result of an extremely lazy effort desingning villains. They all live in villages but can afford intergalactic war against a colonizing fleet (they get help from protoculture war machines, but still). They want to free the galaxy from human tyranny by massive killing innocents. Their army is always the 6 men squad, an old king, a guy with glasses... and a kid. Really!? After 26 episodes they give us the same ending as frontier... OMG. If that was not enough, from 6 valks we get just 1 custom and guess what... its pilot gets killed. Its so sad how they quickly went from cool to "meh" to disappointing.
  19. I think it will be Delta season 2. Lot of things were left incomplete: Freiya was becoming sick, the protoculture ruins arch seems open, who is lady M, the origin of mikumo, what happened to windermere and their thirst of unjustified bloodshed, the suspicious merchant poking both sides, why the nuns bombed windermereans in the first place, why roid suddenly lost it. Plus bandai has still to launch the vf 31s, vf 31 e, the rest of the aerial knights and the idols toys.
  20. Hey guys! Any idea if there is a scheduled reissue of this valk???
  21. Its a great series. The leap between last gen fighters to the first prototype valk. Though the story is in many ways vague, it let us to have a little taste of how "old" valks originated, performed, with earth's "physics". To me the point of zero wanst telling a story, but explaining the origin of the vf's. Whatever the vf 31 is, it owes itself to the vf0.
  22. To me the lil drakens attach too far from the wing, make it look too bulky and im not sure about the color. Though on tv it looked better, ll definitely pass...
  23. Got my 31C yesterday. I have not transformed it, but it feels very nice. Plastic feels HQ, paint apps are remarkable and it feels heavier than previous macross chogokins :). I am so glad I decided to get it. It will be my only Vf 31... I wanted one to keep updated my collection, and her being the grandaughter of Max, made it an easy choice (the rest of the Delta members were so MEEEEH). Great toy!!!!!
  24. Heeey! This is my first feed to mw. As a cannon fodder I will proudly get shot time and time again xD. Regarding the Delta movie... its kinda hard to guess what to expect. If they continue with the story, I hope we get more development on the characters; (specially Mirage... she's a Jenius!!!!!) And less Hayate Freija. If its a retelling, I hope the Windermere get more depth than a "bomb exploding at home" they are so cool villains. Finnally, I dont want to see any apple-water related topics...
