Received mine and it's a pretty good figure....the best so far in the KC Macross fig lineup.....

Unfortunately, I ordered 2 and both came with crushed boxes....:(.....figs obviously are perfect....funny because I wanted to pay for "extra" protection, but KC said I did not have to because they were shipping two of them and they would be "protected" inside a carboard box.....I may have been better of if they added the plastic corner protectors and bubble wrapped both of them...oh well, sh&t happens...

If anyone plans on ditching a close to perfect box and all the plastic trays it comes with (so basically everything except the fig, accessories and instruction manual).....PM me, interested in buying a good KC Focker figure box and the shipper box that the main figure box comes in...so looking for both the "white" shipper box and the main figure box plus trays....need at least one..thanks!

Turns out that the tracking wasn’t updated and the package arrived.

Both sealed inner boxes came in very good condition.  One of them came with the tray placed backwards.  That’s Macross City’s ass.

The Roy that I’m keeping unopened has a very good condition outer box.  The Roy I plan on opening has an outer box with a dent at the corner and some marks on the side.  @jvmacross do you want that inner and outer box?

LOL....maybe that production line worker was having a bad day....

Yes, looking to get at least one decent set of boxes...inner and outer (white shipper)....

Have some leads, but they are still awaiting arrivals....hopefully they arrive in better condition than mine....I have been beating the odds for years, but this time I got Fockered real good! :drinks:

Focker has landed. Since 1985 I have been wanting accurate good quality figures for Macross /Robotech. I can say that with this release they have really made that dream a reality! This release is miles better than Rickaru IMHO. Feels like a quality product and all the accessories are great. Paint aps are excellent and QC on mine is good. Package was shipped with hard plastic corner protectors straight from Hong Kong so no package damage whatsoever. Great job KitzConcept! Now where's my Max/Claudia and all the rest???!!!

Edit: I was going to mention apparent bicep swivels on Roy but I haven’t been able to get either to move on my figure. I doubt they would make them like that if they don’t move but mine don’t budge. 

They should be able to swivel.  Maybe the joints on yours are too tight.

Use the running hot water from the tap or the hair dryer trick @Slave IV on Roy's joints. Just don't melt him into a pile of plastic goo in the process of doing so. 

Think of Black Series, Classified, SHMA, NECA joints as the joints may have fused up during assembly.

Thanks for confirming and the tips. I’m gonna see if I can finesse mine to move then.

I came today 3 days ahead of schedule.   It was just before I went to work so I only had a few minutes to fondle myself.

(Why does that sound so filthy?)

Had run the arms under hot water to get the biceps to move.  KC has been good with customer service but I felt that these figures were too fragile to handle and was going to stop collecting after this one.  Only handled it for 5 minutes but the build quality and appearance seems to have improved.  Build quality might have to do to increased size.

Can't wait to play with myself.

Be a long time before mine ships out, probably with Dana.

I like the look of these backpacks, they give me hope for the Zentraedi soldier backpacks.

GAH!  I want mine already!  It's been stuck "in transit" from LA for 4 freakin days now!  I'm just about done with my angel bird and fan racer display and I need Roy to complete it (and it looks like he comes with the perfect yelling-at-Hikaru face).  Now if I can just find a decent looking 1/12 stand mic...

Unless that's Taiwan currency, they CAN'T seriously want $900...

~$30-32 USD is what it would convert to, which seems... reasonable, I guess, I dunno action figure pricing...

It's $899 Hong Kong Dollars, which is about $116 USD.

That's far more reasonable.

Meet or exceed that level, for that price, and I'll take an entire cast please!

Kitz Concept's quite a let down this time.

My Roy is still stuck in shipment somewhere, so I enquired which HK Post service they use. They replied that they normally use eExpress, which I understand to be normal Air Mail (not EMS), but because their post office has suspended Air Mail to my location, they decided to ship it via Surface.

This is after their e-mail not too long ago, requesting extra fees to, in effect maintain their normal shipping standards (shipping box & express shipping) due to unexpected rising costs, and which I have paid.

Guess I'll only see my Roy in another couple of months at least...

Kitz Concept refunded me the extra fees. Gotta say am impressed with their customer service, just like how some others here have mentioned before..

Available to preorder on KC's site later.

Another humie variant, and they haven't even finished the rest of the SDF Valkyrie flight suits.

When are we getting our Zentraedi Soldiers I wonder?

Hope we wont be stuck in "Good Guys Only World" with figures as well.
