  1. A true Legend of the cinema & a career that is one for the ages. RIP Donald Sutherland.
  2. Love it!! Come on Bandai, it's time to make a VF-2JA HMR!!!
  3. Currently Apple TV hasn't marked it as cancelled and the creators seem to be teasing another round, but if one season is all we get, I'm happy with that.
  4. I know this released a while back, but we just finished it tonight. Great little series, if there should be a season 2 then we're all on board.
  5. Just arrived from AmiAmi Via DHL.
  6. NICE!! I did not realize that you could remove (swap-out) the forward fuselage/cockpit section on these. I might have to find a spare 0S & OD and do the same, tough I'll make my VF-0B look like the Hasegawa kit.
  7. Looks fantastic and I'm glad I waited for the eventual release of the 171 with Armor. The only real issue I have with these kits... is that there is no Battroid kit to go with it.
  8. Can't wait for this season's round of absolute chaos. While I never worked in a restaurant of that caliber, working for a catering company that only made from scratch, in house organic specialties (for 100-300 people at a time... once almost 500 for a massive wedding... even the Governor & his family attended.) & private candle lit wine tastings & tapas dishes, that experience was intense enough because being really good didn't count, perfection or nothing. I love The Bear, but I do get some wicked flashbacks from it.
  9. And white landing gear!
  10. That VT-1 is hands down the luckiest find I've ever come across so far. The legs, boosters, leg armor, backpack & chest are all the same shade of orange on mine. The Armor is all molded in orange while the rest of the Valkyrie appears to be painted orange over the ivory/cream colored plastic. Even if you're getting the Bandai DX version, which looks stunning I'd still recommend tracking down the Yamato V.2 as well.
  11. I had two HMR VT-1's, got them on PO and both had different shades of orange which visually really bugged me and in turn I sold both of them. The plus side is that I found a pristine Yamato V.2 VT-1 for $65.00 shipped on Ebay last year & I'm happy as can be. (Didn't come with the box but that's ok.) As I'm not a fan of the whole TWE concept, I'll hold out for someone who bought one to many & willing to sell a spare.
  12. Yeah, Shin's HMR has a heavy Yamato color scheme influence with a Dash of Hasegawa's. While I do think it looks good (And I'm looking forward to getting mine), I would have preferred the Arcadia 0A color scheme as that is straight from the anime.
  13. I never got Hikaru's VF-4 on the original run, so I'll for sure get one of these. The display stand is a really nice touch too.
  14. "Finally, slam the brakes on quality for Mad Max 3 Beyond Thunderdome." 😂😂
  15. That is the one, the only real-life Galactic Fairy, Eunha of Gfriend & VIVIZ. (Special shout out to Isa of STAYC, she's in my top 5.) As for the idea of a new 1/48 VF-1D conversion kit, I have a DX VF-1D and despite all that the Bandai toy offers, I still prefer the Yamato 1/48 for Fighter mode. I'd happily keep my DX in Gerwalk or Battroid but strictly keep the Yamato in fighter.
  16. Nice, at least with two and "IF" you choose to display them, you can do one with Misa & one with Minmay. I feel you with the lack of display space, I have to get creative with the limited room I have.
  17. How many did you order?
