  1. So, any word if they'll be releasing decal kits or anything to help out customizers with the Plain white Valk that is coming out? Or are we on our own to mod them? I mean, I've got some markers and some cool ideas like dragons and boobs and boobs and stuff, but what I really want is a Minmay Guard. Are they expecting that fans will manufacture their own decal sheets and distribute them amongst the community?

    Frontier Ozma

    Ok, got the Ozma Frontier fig and spent a while playing with his transformation. The illustrations in the book are a little hard to follow so maybe I'm doing something wrong but...is he supposed to be this flimsy? I mean, the shoulders kind of just lay there with 3 or 4 hinges making up the shoulder. They aren't actually connected to anything,as near as I can tell. The connector that holds the fuselage together to form the abdomen is not that tight and I cant for the life of me get his head/neck ring thingie to do what it suggests in the manual. Oh, and am I the only one who thinks that having the rear deck/wing assembly just lay over the cockpit canopy is bad design? Nothing is actually holding it in place but gravity and it rubs on the canopy glass! I don't mean to stir anything up; I'm just wondering if I've transformed him incorrectly or if anyone else is noticing what I'm seeing. Thanks all!
  3. So, what are the odds this thang will some with a display stand?
  4. Ok, I did it! Preorder is in! Sprung for EMS shipping with HLJ....that way it'll get to me faster and my wallet will be thinner!
  5. Hey guys, I'm coming to this party kinda late (I'm a n00b) but I already know I GOTS to order me one of these! Where on earth can I still pre-order it?
  6. OMG, THAT is the one! That is the one I've always wanted! Thanks fifbeat! My quest is over! Ok, seriously though. I'm back to wanting a 1/60 VF-1S again...does anyone know if it has poseable hands like the 1/48? Also, do you have to detach the legs to transform it? Someone was mention that about the 1/48s if I'm not mistaken. Another couple of random questions: 1. Where can I find Super parts -not strike parts? (HLJ lists a Super parts set but it looks like its actually a strike set.) 2. Where do you guys get those cool clear 3 pronged support stands?
  7. Gene, you are so right. Infact, once I saw that weathering special, I knew it was the one for me. And then I saw the price. Holy crap! Guess I'm back to square one on which valk to get.
  8. Well guys, you've given me a LOT to think about and again, I appreciate all the great feedback! So now I'm leaning towards the VF-0S Yamato 1/60 with Ghost booster. Truth be told, I prefer the look of the 0A in grey (I like the head design better) but if those shoulder joint issues are as bad as you say, then it doesn't make much sense to spend that much on a toy that will break. Saw this on HLJ...too bad it s a plastic kit. If it was actual armor for the 1/60 Yamato, I'd be 100% sold! http://www.hlj.com/product/HSG21
  9. Wow guys, more great info! Im really digging on some of these newer valk designs, the more I dig around. I went thruthe entire gallery as suggested and saw some valks I really like and alos thought up a couple of questions. This one, I think is a must have, the Yamato 1/60 VF-0A/ I really dig how clean the lines are and how it is bristling with armament. Now, what is this? And this?! Sorry, I swiped those pics from the gallery, hope that was ok...
  10. Thanks again all! Ok, looks like the VF-1S is my objective. I'm not clear on the difference between Super and Strike but I definitely want one with the big booster jets on the back....one version seems to have one booster and one double barreled cannon. Amazon didn't turn up any Bandai VF-1S listings...any sellers you'd recommend?
  11. Hi, wow, thanks everyone! IO totally expected a "piss off n00b" response becasue that is how most forums are these days but you guys have been so helpful! I truly appreciate it. Well, to answer some of your questions.... I tend towards the "classic" macross designs. I really like the ones with all the huge boosters on the back (like the super ostrich) and the one with a skull and crossbones(Fokker?), and lastly, which ever models have a head design similar to that of JetFire. That's the toy I had when I was a kid and my unwitting introduction to Macross. Is there one that captures all of that?

    The BEST valk?

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum. Read the noobie section, went thru all three pages of Toy postings, even used the search function. I'm reasonably satisfied that my question hasn't been asked before...at least not that I can see! Ok, I want a transformable Valkyrie toy. But which one? Its gotta be on the market, not be over say $150-$200, work well (good quality - I understand some toys have problems with their joints, assembly, etc.) and just be plain ol' cool. What do you guys recommend?
