Thanks! I love the Hi-Metals. The CMS Legioss/Tread are very cool and difficult to put down. I love the small "action figures" also (as you can tell)...Revoltechs, Robot Spirits, Gnu-Dou...all fun to pick up and play with. Still a lot to get, but very low on room...

Mussafar, I've done that before. Now, i have to be really interested in something to even take a step towards buying it.

Easnoddy, I only have one Alpha, and it is a Toynami. I bought it when it was released, opened it, and sold it. Then, I bought it again and it never left the box.

I never researched the line well enough to buy the fun ones. I don't even know where the Toynami is anymore. Maybe I should sell it again, lol.

I was so in love with the Legios ever since Robotech aired back then. Oh, and I've never had one of the cyclones.

I dont have any of the CMS mospeada/cyclones, but they keep going up in price. The lancer/blowsuperior is $200, and these are small toys. The legioss and tread (especially) are very plastic, but have very rigid clicking ractheted joints. The non-ratchet joints, especially the feet which are super loose and there's no easy way to tighten them. Overall very satisfying nostalgia toys for the hundred or so I paid for them.

The toynami alpha is a decent sculpt, but the hands are garbage and there's a lot of problems with them. The beta is more solid but the hips have a weak ratchet mechanism. The overall failure of that toy is the diecast lower legs, they're huge and heavy and a real drawback to the toy. I don't own the toynami alpha anymore, sold the 2 I had.

Both have wonky/badly designed link up mechanisms.

One of these things is not like the otheeerr!! :lol::lol::lol:

Well, he's an honorary member.

Though I can see why we would be confused, since he's missing his single fast pack and is slightly modified from when he defended the SDF.

But I'm afraid that the super VF-1S Roy isn't 1/60 :p

Hey David. Out of curiosity how's the color brown? Is it near Kaki's VF-1A TV color or more of the standard VF-1A CF TV colors? Thanks! :)

it's like kaki's

here's a comparison:

Cool! Looks like it will go perfectly together with Kaki's VF-1A. ;) Thanks David!

So wish I had bought one of those VF-1J's when they released, who'd of known they become so rare and oh so expensive now!

Oh so true. I wasn't in the game back then but that VF-1J is now part of my VF-1 wishlist besides VF-1D and VT-1. ;) So I also wish that Arcadia will reissue those like what they did with VF-4G. :)

Wish I would have bought 3 of them, I was heavy(ier) into multiples when that VF-1J was released. Oh well...

I didn't get one when they first released sadly, but I did get one a little further down the road, still paid almost 3 times original price, but I felt it was worth it, as everything else I got at list price. It's what I feel was the peak of the Yamato VF-1s along with the Elint and grey Roy, and dark blue Cavelier. The tampo on it is really cool.
