Messer's back up on HLJ. Gonna preorder him there, so I'll be able to combine with Mirage's shipping, along with anything else. I do have him preordered but not paid at NY, so I think I'll wait until I have my Lil' Draken set in hand before cancelling my order, just in case there are issues. Yeah he was cheaper there, but I should be able to save most of it through combined shipping.

Chrome is telling me not to even go to nippon-yasan any more... I guess it's redirecting to a non https site that is unsecure. I mentioned before, NY combined shipping is a rip off in comparison to HLJ... if I can lump together purchases it's usually just as cheap or cheaper to pay more up front and less on shipping with HLJ. NY, you might as well just ship everything as it becomes available because lumping things together just means you pay all the individual shipping charges at once rather than the true cost of shipping one box instead of several (that's a little bit of an exaggeration, it's a tiny bit cheaper than paying all the individual shipping amounts).

Woo tomahawk!!! I just got a 1/60 but will still get 1 or 2 of these bad boys :lol:

Not unless they fix that color scheme.  The Tomahawk's supposed to be military tan, not lilac grey!

Previous toys and model kits have gotten it right:

...so what's Bandai's problem?

I think it's the lighting they are under, the Monster's arm doesn't look that pale green in real life, it's much darker. Holding out hope Bandai gets it right with a light tan color!

Actually, that's the aforementioned White Base Catapult Deck...

WBCD.thumb.jpg.0c5448d059692a3b89c9c9971e97f401.jpg

It's a simple set of sturdy plastic walls with Gundam-specific accessories I didn't use.

However, if you add your own Macross-specific accessories...

...it looks as much like the SDF-1 as it does the White Base.   ^_^

The one you linked can combine with this set:

I think the biggest think that swayed me away from it was the cardboard cutout as a background.

I cancelled my Spartan with NY as I decided I won't collect anything more from HM-R line.. I will keep the Regult my gf got me and the Monster cos its the coolest thing in the HM-R line but that's it. 

I did however pre-order the HM-R VF-1S 35th anniversary for my son who likes the color scheme!

Blasphemy! We're finally getting all the destroids and you abandon the line? For shame good sir!

Personally I don't mind the lilac grey. It still looks great and I am so excited for a 1/100 Tomahawk. It is my favorite destroid and will be getting three of them.

Everyone should boycott Spanner for his egregious behavior towards the HM-R line....:p

I will sponsor his doctor's visit.

But seriously, the valks are way too breakage prone. They should have used old fashioned die cast, not this new whatever material it is.

However, DESTROIDS!

Being able to buy multiples of HMR figures at NY is a plus.  Ordered 2 more Spartans at NY.  I decided to have for each Destroid 6 to open and 1 to keep MISB.  Maybe someday I'll get 3 more Monsters.  B))

You have a big closet.
