Laugh all you want about it's size and price point.

Who's laughing now? It hurts doesn't it?

:lol:

Well, those that were saving the money can now buy the two Wave versions (to keep one in each mode) and have left over for some 1/60's.

This is what happens when you go DYRL? instead of SDFM. The movie SDF-1 models can never satisfy but everyone loves the TV brick. Those fly swatters are jinxed.

The WAVE SDF-1 was a birthday present from my wife back in February of this year, and it took her quite a bit to track it down. I'm perfectly happy with it, now that I've seen the alternative.

Well, I was beginning to suspect that this would turn out to be beyond my price range, but I wasn't expecting it to be so far out that even with high magnification optics you can't even see my price range from there.

I guess I shall have to be content with my little matchbox repackaged Storm Attacker mode Macross that sits on my shelves feeling confused and disoriented that all the Valkyries are taller than it.

I own one of those too? So the f what? It's a POS. It hurts either way, just because you feel better about it, it makes you want to gloat? Why don't you buy every POS Toynami toy and keep laughing at everyone else if it'll make you feel that much better. :rolleyes:

I still believe this is not the $500 toy we have been talking about.

- The price is far from what we've heard.

- The release date was said to be 2010 spring for the toy.

- The previouly announced SDF has a clean name of "SDF" on its tag. This one has "SDF prototype HDR" title, which seems to describe that "it's not the thing".

- I hope I am right.

Ok this is just getting ridiculous now. What the hell is going on over at Yamato?!? $2K for a resin version of the Macross, not thank you.

It really is too bad that this is what Yamato has resorted to, by having way over-priced items that will only drive customers away towards other items that may be less desired.

What's next a $10K 1/60 Destroid Monster MKII?? Made from overstock cardstock of left over boxes that were to be used to ship the $2K Macross?

Thanks for nothing, YAMATO. <_<

pretty disappointing as many of us really thought it was going to retail at $500... where'd that estimate come from?? True that this has almost turned me off to collecting for awhile thinking about how much i've spent on yamato toys lately.

Time to stop for now!

Yeah... maybe the Yamato execs are sitting down and reading this while laughing to themselves... "So... what do you think of the $500 pricepoint now! Suckas!!!"

I'm more under the impression that the toy has been canceled and this prototype kit is the only option for people that want one and can afford, paint, detail and construct it...?

If so - An easy pass and total fail combined into the one product.

If this thing doesn't turn out vaporware it's mine!

but at 2000 bucks it stays bloody vaporware

Moshi, moshi, Yamato?

Dear Toynami executive(s),

There is demand for an SDF-1 toy of true masterpiece quality at a reasonable price point. Spend $2000, buy this kit, then simplify it, change it slightly, make a toy out of it. Clearly you don't care if people think all your company does is rip off existing designs so why stop now?

Hm.... think of it this way.... means budget freed up for the other awesome macross stuff...

Mmmmm .... the cheaper blank valks look like a good choice to get multiples of to re-create the 7 stage transformation shown at the Pachinko game launch ceremony....

Let's us think about it...

We have thousands of members in here.

Has anyone ever spend over 2000 US dollars in ONE toy??? (woman and car don't not count :p )

Seriously.

Does Bandai still has Macorss TV/DYRL toy license? If so...

After they release the 30 cm tall Quarter from Macross Frontier...

I hope Bandai will make a 30 cm tall DYRL Macross!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

so...anyone wants to argue again if Yamato is greedy or not? Save, I would've broken the f*cking thing in 3 parts as a big thanks for all the broken valkyries they've released

this is Yamato's way of saying, f*ck you to everyone, byl making the toys everyone has long for ages, but they will make them so ridiculously expensive you'll never get them, and if you do, something will break cause it's a delicate toy not to be play with

No they are not greedy. As a collector outside of Japan and that you are not in the actual "Japanese Small to Mid-Size" toy company industry you have no real clue of costs or any other facts to claim Yamato or any other company is greedy.

As far as breaking it goes......... lame :rolleyes: .

Many are also forgetting in Japan there are plenty of other model kits that are the same price or even higher. I've see stuff at Shizuoka Hobby that was insanely priced.

Agreed, that is also thre reason that I hate Yamato and love Yamato at the same time.

I'll quote you on my sig in the future when the "Is your USD2000 Yamato SDF-1 broken or perfect thread" arrives :lol:

I was referring to you saying I should have broke it in three parts intentionally, not be be confused with toys breaking. B))

So Save, can you tell us more about this then? Or are you :ph34r:

Is this really all there is? Just the bare resin kit with no forseable possibility of an assembled toy?

How did the kit feel? Was it light or heavy? Are there really 400 unassembled pieces? What features and gimmiks does it have? What are the time frames and costs for ordering?

How about we chip in some money, all together and get one...and recast? LOL.

Oh my goodness, $2,300+ USD!!! My wife said yes...but now definitely no. And I even said "no" to myself. I think this is just Yamato throwing up prices to get reactions of collectors and fans.

They'll probably lower the price on the day of release.

Weak sauce man. I'd rather spend the $400 on a 1/60 G-System resin kit or conversion kit.
