I hope it does, makes the VF-2JA a possibility! 

The 2J is a rare beauty. (I think Macross II is one of the best Macross shows ever. Everyone go watch the subbed uncut version now, or forever hold your peace!!!)

It really is, as for the VF-2SS, I for see Nexx & Faerie Squadron too follow. Would be dumb for Bandai not to milk that mold!

Probably, but I dont need a yellow stripe and a blue stripe.

But I will take an Icarus and VA-1SS Metal Siren for sure.

Sold out on eBay. Was 155+ shipped a good deal? Where can we expect the best price?

I'm expecting NY to have it for about $100 (w/o shipping) based on current exchange rate and other HMR releases. NY is usually the cheapest for preorders.

It's just great to see some of the improvements over the prototype images that were released last fall...namely:

- getting rid of that split in the front foot thruster

- tidying up the closeness of the canopy shield with the nose (while retracted in battroid mode)

- blue visor instead of green

- improved/sleek tab shape/design located on the inner legs

- better concealment of the screws/hardware (mostly notably in the hips, elbows, and wing joints)

old prototype images...

The feet improvement and blackened out hip hardware and under the arms is looking pretty great!

The Blue and Red 2SS's are a brilliant idea.  If I weren't strapped for cash I'd likely buy three of these and paint two of them just like that.

'hopefully' there will be non-SAP versions which 'should' be cheaper..;)
