Here's my Bandai Story:
Last sunday, I went to Akihabara to hunt for some Macross Toys. I'm on the prowl for Vintage 1/55s, affordable Yamarcadias and the HM-R, specifically the Glaug.
During the hunt, I saw a YF-29 Durandal with the correct "SMS" shoulder print on display.
Went to different stores looking for the best priced Glaug. Here are the different prices in yen:
Yep, I found the best price.
While looking around I saw the Minmay Plamax on display. Then finally was able to taste the burger from Carl's Jr. (The line has always been long whenever I'm in the area, but not this time). Later that day, I saw an HM-R Roy with stage and a 1/55 GBP-1S Armor.
Got a chance to drop by the Tamashii showroom. I tried making the demo unit Glaug stand on one feet without using any stand. I got to talk to the person at the booth and he wrote down my feedback regarding the Macross HM-R line. I told him that there are plenty of overseas fans of the SDF Macross and that they should reissue them especially the VF-1 and hopefully Bandai does and you guys can thank me later. Unfortunately though, I failed to mention about the Max & Milia arm armors.
Then it was time to go home. Yes, to the area near Walkure's first mini concert was held.
Before departing for the airport, I went to a local second hand shop and a yellow submarine and found an HCM VF-1S Hikaru DYRL and a YF-29 that already comes with the replacement shoulder.
EDIT: Then it was time to watch Macross Delta Episode 9, Raw!!!
