I'm not sure why I preordered this... I think I have preorders' remorse now, so I will cancel my preorder now. :unsure:

I blame the HLJ post that came up on my FB news feed. :p

EDIT: aahhhh! I was going to cancel the preorder and then saw it again on HLJ and saw how awesome it looks.... and preorder not cancelled... LOL!

I have until March to change my mind again. :rolleyes:

LOL! For the price I think it's worth it. Once you put this baby in your display shelf/case you won't regret it. If anything you'll regret not picking it up after it eventually is discontinued.

And you can still sell it afterwards if you really don't like, eggy99. ;)

I've never noticed how truly cobbled together this spaceship looks until studying both the Hasegawa kit and now this one. The Promethius is just all kinds of wrong in shape to make it streamlined against the main spaceship. You've got the angled landing deck on one side, and the superstructure on the other. There's just no way to tuck the carrier in closer to the leg of the SDF-1.

Believe it or not, that's one of the things I love about it! It just looks like a real attempt at attaching something that wasn't really meant to go there in the first place.

OK, question time, can it be shown in cruiser mode, with the ship "arms" facing toward the bow instead of stern? You know, so it can look like the picture in the banner on this site, for example?

yes looks to me they can....

"legs" look kind of stubby....I wonder if maybe they forgot to slide down the legs more to make them appear longer....

your right about that... they arent long enough.... however the legs in that drowing are too long.... needs to be in between :p

a change im gonna make on my 2 ships when i get them....

I do find very large ships that are not symetrical to be kind of interesting personally. To me it seems more realistic. Such large ships would probably be built over a long period of time and perhaps even retro-fitted over the years for various reasons.

Edit* Nyankodevice legs better match the lineart....

Keep in mind to, that Miyatake seems to have consider perspective in these drawings. A 1200 m long object will look VERY different to an observer than a 20cm object.

I'm getting it because it's the only proper SDFM version anybody is putting out but I could nitpick the details on it all day. The legs are too severely thick, too stubby. The lots of stuff about the bow that are too stubby or long as well. But it's still one of the best proportioned SDFM SDF-1's (and only one of two?) made.

The 30 year old Takatoku 1/6300 was built as attack mode only....so the lower legs are more accurate, in terms of the proportions of the "blue part" of the leg that contributes to it's lengthy appearance.....this pic shows that the Megahouse is the complete opposite...it was built to showcase the cruiser mode.....the legs are too stubby....perhaps if they pull out a bit it will give them a "longer" appearance to compensate for the stubbiness....still, not sure what possible limitation could have made them mold it so short...as a parts-former they could have even provided separate legs for attack mode....oh well....still the best overall TV SDF-1 to be released......so far....

Actually, the whole leg is off.....the upper part of the leg is just too short.....in this instance, as a parts-former, an extra set of legs for attack mode would have been completely acceptable.....guess we still have to wait for either Arcadia's 1/3000 (a fool's hope?) or Bandai's SOC DX 1/1800 or 1/3000 TV SDF-1 to get a definitive rendition..... :rolleyes:
