I just purchased a couple of Volks TSF’s from Muv Luv, and I ordered a Full Set YF-19 DX Chogokin from Mandarake. 
 

I’m really looking forward to getting them!

Can’t go wrong with the YF-19 just be careful with the head laser

I’ve got the VF-19 Adv so I’m aware of some of the shortcomings of the design. Unless there have been issues that I’m not aware of?

That's how you know you have a problem, but even if there was a 12-step program for Macross collecting, I doubt any of would ever submit to it.

This website is the 12 step program.  Hi, my name is... and I'm an addict. It's how every meeting begins here at Macross Anonymous.

Just got a pre owned 1st gen VF0S Yamato, the latest HMR VF4G (just shipped today) and the last Chogokin VF1S Hikaru from Manda (took them 5 days to acknowledge my order and waiting for them to ship after payment)

Some stuff that arrived recently..

Pop quiz, which of the above:

1. Have the exact same box size?

2. Are the same scale?

3. Designed by Kawamori? :D

The HMR VF-4G Roy colours did turn out better than expected in hand. Or perhaps, it's just great to have more VF-4G variants.. ^_^

For Fighter 1 & Fighter 2, too bad they don't come with pilot figures to match their opening cockpits..

My second Matchbox SDF-1 showed up. I had one before that I never un-boxed and decided I didn't have the room to display it so it was sold. Then I regretted it. So, here is my second one. Unfortunately not as mint as the first one. It's not bad though. Replacement cannons should be here today and fresh decals soon. Looks pretty good hanging out with the HMR fleet!

Bet seriously Arcadia. Where is my PF TV SDF-1!

Do the fighters have metal contents or are they plastic with metallic paints?

Holy smokes! You guys weren't kidding. The Legioss/Tread is HUGE! I definitely don't need two of these. I take back everything I said about the Evolution Legioss being too small.

Time to get the 1/10 Ride Armors on a YetiStand. I made some adapters. Now to fiddle with them a bit.

Nice! Oh how I dream someday of having a few Legioss/Tread combos to display and play with. Waiting for Sentinel since there is no way I’ll buy the ET versions for more than $50.

That's/those are the Toynami/Aoshima. I didn't feel like waiting for years until maybe Evolution comes out with a Tread. And I'm never going to transform these so I'm not too worried about the quality. I paid a few more dollars than $50 for them.:unknw: They cost me less than a Evolution combo will come to though. They were both MISB. I wasn't taking a huge risk.

The way my Karma works Evolution will release pics of a Tread tomorrow. You're welcome.:hi::D

I have a Evolution Legoiss on PO to display in Soldier mode. That shelf is going to be pretty busy/full.

Oh, gotcha! I have the Aoshima Legioss but never got the Tread. Yeah, I’m just waiting for Sentinel and I don’t care how long it takes. I’m willing to wait for extra satisfaction.

Still a bit mixed feelings about the Fighters to be honest. The front half of them have curves like a classic valk, but the rear half are all angular in a way that reminds me of paper planes & spaceships I use to fold as a kid :lol:

100% plastic with metallic paint, so it feels really lightweight. I believe they were done with regular paint release as well.
