  1. Hi folks! A friend gave me a Yamato 1/60 V1 VF-1S Roy (the toy from 2001), but it's naked! Really looking most for the GU-II gunpod, but I would also love to get the heat shield, missiles, and antenna if available! Thanks.
  2. Well the fun thing about this is people finally know the terms of the agreement between Tatsunoko and Harmony Gold and exactly how long the license is for: Sept 11th 1984 Tatsunoko grants license to HG for 7 years, so until 1991 Mar 15th 1991 Tatsunoko grants license to HG for 10 years, so until 2001 Aug 6th 1998 Tatsunoko amends license agreement until 2011 Mar 20th 2008 Tatsunoko amends license agreement until 2021 So there goes the theory that the license is indefinite or that they "sold" the property to Harmony Gold. It's still a limited term license. Yes, than can renew it forever if they want to, but they don't have to. Now all the HG arguments can be fought with clearer knowledge! Hooray!
  3. I realllllly really want Mylene's VF-11 MAXL.
  4. Oh, sorry, no, I want one booster for one leg armor. Let's see, from the robot's point of view, the booster is right side and the missing leg armor is also right leg.
  5. Hey folks, I have a Hi-Comical Model (Joke Machine) Max VF-1A Fast Pack (just one of the boosters) and I'd like to trade it for the leg armor for a DYRL Hi-Comical Model. Doesn't matter if it's Hikaru or Max, they're the same. The only reason the booster is Max is it has the blue circle Skull logo sticker on it. Any takers?
  6. Seriously? Anemic and fragile is how I'd describe SHE kits, not chunky and tough and easy to transform.
  7. Penguin just said, "Considering the VF-4G only appeared in games"... and I was saying, no it did not only appear in games.
  8. Uh, the VF-4 was in the anime. It was in Flashback 2012. Since next year is 2012, that's obviously a good time to make a toy of the VF-4.
  9. I love the 19, but let's get real: The VF-1 is the most popular machine in all of Macross, period. Also, I am super excited about both the VF-19S and the VF-19P, maybe slightly more excited for the 19P! I also hope the pods on the shoulders are removable, but I won't cry if they aren't! Looks really sweet either way! Also long as it's white with red stripes and not the whale blood stained robot, I'm down!
  10. I got my Rodimus last night and took my time transforming it. No real problems, but you've gotten take it slow and be careful. The guy in the video pretty clearly manhandled it.
  11. Hi folks, I'm looking for a beater 1/55 Max VF-1J to use for a custom. Takatoku, Joon's bootleg, Bandai reissue, it doesn't matter. I am replacing the head so I don't care if the head lasers are broken or if the head is even missing it's not a problem. Don't need any accessories, but I prefer the shoulders and backpack unbroken if possible. Anyone have one of these laying around?
  12. Had a very successful trade with Valiantknight! Thanks again!
  13. Thanks guys. Looks like Valiantknight and I are gonna trade because I really do want just the VF-1S Hikaru and not the VF-1J Hikaru or VF-1S Roy. Thanks!
  14. There is no room and my house and at the urgings of my girlfriend, I want to downsize, literally. Anyone wanna trade a Yamato 1/48 VF-1S Strike Valkyrie Hikaru for a Yamato 1/60 VF-1S Strike Valkyrie Hikaru? I transformed it twice and never had the urge to do it again! Boxes are a little scuffed up from hanging out in my closet but it has all the parts in nice condition. I can provide pictures if you want.
  15. Yes, the ADV Macross dub is not so great, but I still think Mari Iijima is the worst part of it, unfortunately. Her accent is so thick, despite living in the states for years and years, that it is terribly distracting. Of course, it could be worse, it could be the Macross II dub, which is one of the worst dubs to ever exist. Every... one likestotalkreal... fast... and then... havelotsofawkwardlyplaced... pauses. That dub goes back to US Renditions though, so what do you expect?
  16. Floro Dery is credited in both the end credits of the TV show and the movie. Also a lot of people worked on Macross, not just Kawamori. He came up with the original concept but he didn't write every episode, he wasn't series director, he didn't design the characters or the spaceships or most of the enemy mecha and so on.
  17. Why are you people so interested in seeing Big West written on things? Big West is an advertising agency. They didn't CREATE anything. Studio Nue, Artland, and various freelancers and outsourced studios created Macross. Big West just put up money. Care about the artists, not the guys with the checkbooks.
  18. Do you have to pay ahead of time with them?
  19. Not every Matchbox Veritech came with the video, on the Robotech Wars giftset.
  20. If you watch the Robotech DVD extras there's a (super boring) Toyfair 198...5? 6? presentation where they show the big Matchbox Veritech transforming into GERWALK mode. I disassembled one and found the mechanisms for the arms swinging out and the legs swinging out are intact. If you put a piece of plastic over the inside back plate the arm swinging out works great. Problem is there's no hand, nor back of the arm, and of course, while the legs swing out, the joints are missing so it can't do gerwalk properly. And yeah, this was definitely copied off of the Takatoku/Matsushiro Valkyrie since as Ray mentions, there are a number of features ONLY on the 1/55 toy and not on newer toys or in the recent line art that are copied. Not just the scope on the gunpod, but the shape and location of the swing bars, the shape of the shoulders, et cetera. Also note that the working shoulder mechanism is NOT present in the Exo-Squad reissues. Guess they simplified it later on. I forget if the Harmony Gold branded Chinese release has the shoulder mechanisms or not. I will have to check.
  21. I got my Straxus (okay, Darkmount, if you must). It's pretty rad.
  22. Oh sweet. Should be fun checking this out. Thanks!
