$100??? Holy Schnikes! I guess that's in line with what they cost originally... but I'm glad I paid much less by waiting for the bargain bins.

Not quite.

The original Miria Q-Rau actually was 12,800-yen back in the day. Of course, it included a figure. See http://www.hlj.com/product/YMT00030

The original Max Q-Rau was 9800-yen: http://www.hlj.com/product/YMT00035

no improvements?

Interesting question. One strange difference I found is the red Q-Rau gun colour:

Metallic grey in old version: http://www.macrossworld.com/macross/graham/q-rau-pics.htm

Metallic grey in Yamatio's own site: http://www.yamato-toys.com/items/detail.php?gid=1241

Metallic gold/bronze in official pics to retailers: http://www.1999.co.jp/image/10079871a2/20/2 , http://www.hobbystock.jp/item/view/HBY-ACF-00001293

I don’t usually comment on price. But $100 for one of these is ridiculous. Yes they are cool because they were in the show/movie but they don’t have anything near the artistic quality that the VF/YF/SV series does. I certainly wouldn’t be buying one so I could stare at it all day saying to myself “That’s beautiful”, which I do a lot of with my VF/YF/SV stuff. To me they are not worth more than $50 max. I don’t base that on perceived production costs, detail, etc. I base it purely on desire. I don’t desire one of those enough to pay more than $50 for it.

I would much rather spend a couple more $$ and get another 1/60 v.2.

I got my miria q-rau a few years ago for 60 bucks shipped... fair price, I never cared to pay more than a similar price for the max q-rau considering it was only shown on DYRL for about 1 second

the q-rau isn't very posable, you need to swap the missile bay from the legs and the interior cockpit detail is seriously lacking, no pilot figure and 100+ for 10 year old toy is very ambitious from Yamato

To make the Max Q competitive with the Miria Yamato needed to make some changes.

Option 1 Add a Max figure. B))

Option 2 Remove the Miria figure. :wacko:

Best advice for the buyer, wait a couple of months and buy them at a discount. :lol:

I'm a total cheap-455, but $100 is a damn good price for one of these. I was amazed at the one I got pre-owned. They're MASSIVE!

And it is nicely posable - at least as much as demonstrated in any of their on-screen appearances.

Well, $100 is quite expensive, but I will try to only get the Max Q-rau. That's one I've been waiting on. I'm looking for another red version to do a Macross Frontier Klan Klan custom. The CMS fig of her next to it should be a very nice display.

No early bird for Max's? :blink:

Although I am running out cash for buying this... , after buying the Tomahawk and per-order Defender.

However I won't be surprise if the 'Green' version come out sometime next year, after seeing all different versions/colour of Tomahawk being/planning made recently.

Just wondering...

Does anyone know if the CMS Max Q-Rau fit inside this? Or do the feet have to modified?

If I remember correctly, the max figure came with instructions on how to put the figure in the Q-Rau. I think you have to take the feet off and then put them in. I gotta double check that, but yeah, it should technically fit in the Q-Rau.

meh, I would never pay full price for another yammie q-rau, especially considering how poorly it measures up to yamato's more recent offerings.

edit: actually, it measured up pretty poorly back when it was first released. I remember my first thought as I got it out of its box, "I paid how much for this?".
