  1. That jacket is what we used to refer to in the military as a "BCG" Birth Control Jacket. Meaning that there is no way you will EVER kiss a girl while wearing it. That said, it's on par price wise with some of the Gundam clothing they have at the Gundam Base in Tokyo. $300 plus for a red flight jacket with a Zeon patch on it etc.
  2. If you'll be in or near Washington DC, August 10-12. Kawamori-san has just been announced as a guest at Otakon 2018
  3. As the title says, I'll be heading to Japan in March for about 9 days and while I'll be busy for most of that time, I plan to use any free time I have to check out the sights. I'll be in Tokyo and want to know what Macross stuff there is to see. I already plan to check out the Odaiba Gundam, the Ghibli Museum, and hopefully Tokyo Disneyland. Are there any Macross displays or museums still running? Suggestions are welcome.
  4. I hope this actually becomes a thing. As soon as it's up for preorder, I'm grabbing one.
  5. I like the design, in a lot of ways it looks like a more organic evolution of the VF1 than any of the designs that came after SDFM. The toy just looks......cheap. And it's not cheap....but it looks......cheap.
  6. Holy crap. If I only had the time....the patience....the skill....
  7. Got mine today. Really like it, lots of intricate detail, like the moving rudders. Very complicated. I can say with 100% certainty that I will NEVER transform this wee beastie.
  8. My thoughts exactly. The Arcadia looks spot-on to the anime chunky battroid lineart. The Bandai looks more streamlined overall. I'm happy with it. I see the VF-19 Advance as the culmination of the YF-19 and Isamu's character. He's totally the type of guy to get sick of the military BS and go mercenary....and that's what he did apparently.
  9. Looks badass. Can't wait to get mine!
  10. It's funny, but something about the Bandai DX stance reminds me of the original Yamato 1/72.
  11. Actually looks like the Bandai is a bit bigger than the Arcadia. The head on the Bandai comes up level to the top of the shoulder on the Yamato. Could be a perspective thing.
  12. I got the following notice from YesAsia this morning. Knew that already, but nice to see they're tracking on it. Can't wait to get this sucker in hand!
  13. Oh, just 60 watt jobbies. I'm no photographer by any stretch. That was a 5 second shot with my iPhone.
  14. Some $25.00 Target special that I stole from my kid. One of those deals with 5 little flexible arms. Only two bulbs on.
