Toynami 1/100 line


Recommended Posts

Going to SDCC and I can try to pick them up if anyone is interested.  Let me know, no guarantees.  I like the box, but the toy itself looks cheap compared to the HMRs.

I'd be interested in a minty boxed one

89$ for this ?! 

For the box, yeah.  Just toss out the toy, and replace it with an HMR instead.  :good:

@Smiley424 would you be able to pick up something else? I'm interested in the SDCC exclusive Funko Pop Up figures. Please let me know.

I picked up one Toynami VF-1S GBP-1S set for sale.  Cost plus packaging and shipping.  I will go by first to pm me.  I won't ship out until Monday at the earliest and will be paying FedEx/UPS to pack and ship as I am not local to SoCal.  I probably won't check here again until around 4pm PST.

News from SDCC: Jamie Sullivan, the artist that made the retro style box art, mentioned in passing that there will be a line of retro style boxed toys that apparently will include Destroids. At around 17:20 :

I find the lack of applause at the announcement licensing extension amusing. You'd expect that if the audience was really enthusiastic about the prospect they would have treated it as a "win" and cheered.

I'd be interested to see how those trays fit an HMR valk.  And maybe some high-res scans of the boxes for some editing. ^_^ 

Seems like @sh9000 may be getting a hold of one to do just that...will see how it goes. I don't care enough to spend that kind of money on a box.

from Jenius' review, the Kitzconcept toys, while there were some flaws, seem rather decent, for the price.  I am waiting to see what the VF-1J turns out like, since for some strange reason, this was one of my favorite VF-1 toys from Macross

Somewhere, Takatoku cries in it’s sleep.

Box looks nice but this is desecration of a long lost and prestigious company. Like placing a steaming pile in a Ferrari and calling it an accessory. 

Toynami has no shame.

 

Sig worthy.

So I went and bought one of these.

I can't say much about the toy that hasn't been said already....I probably will just leave it MISB as I am sure there are zero improvments to the actual toy...not sure if they tossed in pilot figs, but that would be the only thing I would want out of the box.  I have another GBP from their "stealth" set, which I believe was another SDCC exclusive...and you would not be missing anything by not owning one.

The only reason I or anyone else half-way interested in these releases would be the nostalgic factor...and by that I mean the obvious nod to the old-school Takatoku boxes and box-art.  For the box alone, Toynami does go all the way and executes the look flawlessly.

The box basically is a "what-if" look at what could have been a Takatoku 1/100 release of their 1/55 VF-1S GBP combo set...:good:

Anyway, it is an awesome recreation of the old-school Takatoku boxes...the illustrations, the text, the fonts...right down to the textured feel of the actual box.  Again...this is pure 100% nostaligia heroin shot straight into your veins. With more similar packaging announced for the rest of their tired lineup of 1/100 VF-1's....I may be hooked enough to continue buying these...I'll definitely get the Retro VF-1S Super Combo set now...;)

I have no idea where any of my HMR GBP's are at the moment...so hopefully someone else can see if they fit into these boxes.
