This thread really helped me out on making a decision to buy the HG re-release of the Animego's SDFM. I can remember watching the Robotech Series when I was a kid on channel 13 early in the moring before school. Ever since then I couldnt shake the addiction of this series. I then learned about the original series in Japan ever since then I have been collecting M+ dvd's, the some Yamato's 1/60 YF-21, 1/72 VF-1S with Strike Fast Packs, 1/72 Armored VF-1J, and a 1/48 Stealth with Super and Strike Parts. OMG..can you say addiction? My next buy will be the YF-19.
I remember in the early 2000's I saw the frist release. Back then i was broke as a joke and didnt have the funds back then.
Anyways, thanks for all the info guys!
