  1. Dumb question but why does it seem like ever since Harmony Gold and Bigwest made an agreement and Bandai had that questionnaire about Macross related toys, is that they seem to have stopped doing original Macross in Chogokin? 😕 Anyone know when we might be looking at another announcement?
  2. Hey guys I got my Tamiya Cement for ABS plastic in the mail today. I had to order it from Taiwan to get a decent price. Nothing new to me with Tamiya products there's just literally no hobby stores around any more. Anyways I think this stuff will work. I glued it already. It's just a real small piece and I read reviews so supposedly I think this Tamiya cement will bond the plastic back together and the only way it will break is by force and I read that usually it will break somewhere else because it bonds so well. Let's hope after it dries and I put it in robot mode that everything is all good.
  3. True however I'm not certain why. I would think it would command 500+ now
  4. I have a spare armor set I could sell you.
  5. They are reasonable on ebay.
  6. I got partial refund and bought the ABS glue and put the rest of the moneys back on my CC. Thanks. Hopefully Tamiya ABS glue works as good as I think it might. I will use the rest of the glue on a couple of polystyrene kits I have, as I read that their ABS glue can be used on ABS and polystyrene which is pretty good. I lost my Tamiya thin cement, no idea where that stuff is.
  7. Unfortunately I got it on ebay and the seller isn't responding yet so I probably won't be able to go that route. I'll try the ABS plastic glue that Angesdad mentioned. Thanks for all your replies guys, much appreciated
  8. Hey guys I just imported a chogokin valk from Japan which, you know that center piece that clips into the canope and holds the legs onto the valk in robot mode? The grey piece of plastic that is hinged off of the metal piece. Anyway, that plastic came broken from the factory. What would you guys do? Bug the seller about it or just glue it and leave it be? And also would I want to use Tamiya thin model glue to get a good bond? Thanks for your advice.
  9. I just got my two Chogokin armored valkyrie armor sets in the mail by surface mail from BIJ today. It required signature confirmation.

    meh. I liked the whole thing. it wasn't entirely like the battle scenes were icing on the cake since there was a lot of CG instead of pure anime.

    Macross Zero? It was pretty good. I wish I could get into Macross Frontier tho', too. What ever happened to Bandai re-releasing the VF-1S Roy strike valkyrie? I never managed to pick one of those up.

    I might get one but what the heck happened to the Chogokin line? I thought they would be burning another hole in our wallet with that stuff again quickly.
  13. I have too many Roys. One is more than enough, to me, anyway. I would lose money if I sold mine unfortunately so they just sit in my closet.
  14. I love how Yamato’s yellow and/or have broken shoulder joints.
  15. In-stock at Bombusbee: https://www.bombusbee.net/-p2641.html I highly recommend this seller. Shipping is only a little tiny bit high. I expected it to be a lot more from what I read in this forum. They have 24 units in stock. heh that's the same one I'm missing.
  16. Have any of you guys heard anything from Bombusbee.net yet?
  17. Yeah I don’t use the anime style hands. Personally.
  18. My package from bij shipped out yesterday by sea. I don’t have a vf-1j though.
  19. This stuff removed some of the paint from my VF-1A 1/60 v1 wing. So I'm going to end up painting the whole valk with tamiya model paint one day. I have a spare brand new in factory sealed box vf-1a 1/60 v1 anyway
  20. I'm not so sure that is always true. I remember they flooded the market with 1/55 so much that they cut back by the time max and mirya were out which caused a shortage of those, hence the $300+ price tag of them new later on. Also chogokin roy focker is really easy to get and costs less than most of the other chogokin. I thought they would be pretty balanced in price but I'm just guessing here but I think they flooded out the market with that one particular valkyrie.
  21. I received mine a day early from Luna Park via DHL. I haven't opened the inner box yet but I will.
  22. My order from BIJ shipped and I also received a surface parcel from them the other day.
  23. Unfortunately this time around I didn't order extras, if I did I would definitely be more than willing to help out.
