I love me more VF-4.. and as I'm typing this I'm thinking Bandai would sooner release these than the dang Tomahawk.

Now with my luck, I'll pull the trigger on the Focker homage, and Bandai will announce the next day Max and Millia's... Which for me, is a bit of double dipping regret as it's the same mold, and only plan to sink in multiplies with the Zero line, especially with a fodder 0A and fodder SV-51...

You're the holy guardian of archived images!!!! Thank you!!!

Dammit, that Max 😍... I guess this was a long time ago (During my collecting time out), and I guess in true Bandai fashion, now locked in the deep freezer... 

You're welcome. :hi:

That image is from Tamashii Nations 2018. And yes, that's been awhile. ;)

Well, who knows? One more year, and maybe they will finally release Tomahawk and Phalanx in celebration of its 10th Anniversary since it was teased back in Tamashii Nations 2015. You never know, they also might add Nousjadeul-Ger in the mix as well. :spiteful:

When we were excited about BW going international, we didn't realize it meant a bunch of boring reissues.

And a bunch of VF-1's from different companies. Whether it's Big West's or Robotech's.

Honestly, I kinda did. Old school Macross is the biggest thing of the franchise outside Japan

Yes, to have VF-1s become prolific is a good thing; even if many of us have all the VF-1s we can take (I'm not there yet, though).

Seeing some store shelf space occupied by Gundams feature more Macross would be wonderful to behold.

This right here: "Seeing some store shelf space occupied by Gundams feature more Macross would be wonderful to behold." This would be amazing and isn't asking much. Yes Gundam is popular but there's a hunger for Macross out here that isn't getting fulfilled.

So, there's the VF-19 Kai releasing next month, then the VF-4 reissue... And that's it?

I'm a bit concerned about this line. There's been a lot of teases, but no actual announcements.

The entire Hi Metal R line will have had a total of six releases this year, once the VF-4 III is released in October. Three of which are from Macross. To be fair, the VF-4 III is a re-release though. So, that's two new HMR Macross releases this year, which, when compared to the last few years is on par.

Two Macross related HMR releases in 2023, one in 2022, nothing in 2021 (?), one in 2020, and two in 2019.

And they may still announce something else before the end of the year.

Keep the faith. :)

The vast amount of yet to be released reveals creates this illusion. But it's common for Bandai to show numerous reveals at main events, where most eventually get forgotten in their deep freezer.

Considering how their last releases sold out on Amazon Japan, there's nothing to worry, but we shouldn't expect more than a handful yearly pre-orders.
