*Edit* This is going to sound weird, but for some strange reason, this overall looks better than my DYRL Hikaru 1S. Logically I know this is impossible, the only explanation I can come up with is that the Yellow and Black just makes the whole thing look better to me than the Red and Black of the DYRL 1S. O.o

 

Maybe the correct "001" on the Roy-1S makes it looks tons better than the Hikaru-1S...

 That being said, I would still prefer a DYRL Roy pilot figure, and I doubt I will ever mount the ballon hands.

I can't wait to mount the balloon hands!!! Full TV look!

I do have the advantage of having three DYRL DX Fockers on display though. So, why not both?;)

The pseudo "TV" Yamato's in the pic will be DX's tonight.:good:

Can agree with that entirely.  Since they finally printed the numbers right, this one is lacking what I'm just going to refer to as "Bandai Taint."  It's actually done correctly, without Bandai's stupid logic marring the whole thing. :p  While it's not really that visible, just knowing it's done correctly is a nice feeling that you don't have with the previous versions.

My AmiAmi order just got dropped at my door, and it's a beauty.  If the parts in the cockpits can be coaxed out, I might just mix and match pilots and control panels to just turn one of these into a DYRL and call it a day.

Are you planning to do anything with the pilot and cockpit?  I was thinking about robbing my Hasegawa 1/48 kit of a pilot....and even considered chopping the SDFM centre control stick....but not sure I should go that far in butchering the DX.

Printing the modex number correctly was probably an oversight that cost someone their job. :unknw:

 

Remains to be seen if the rest of the DYRL Skull members will have the corrected modex numbers when released...

most likely, tho, the beatings will continue until morale improves...

I'm calling it: TV will always have correct modex and DYRL will always have "symmetrical" modex.

I was only going to collect the TV variants in the DX line anyway, and I am so glad that they have fixed the 001 for Roy's 1S.  

The symmetrical "non-error" in Kakizaki's tail fin (012, 210) would have driven me absolutely nuts...

It drives me nuts and for the price I just can't justify using the decal sheet from Kaki to fix all of the DYRLs.

If I can pry the consoles out of the TV versions, I may very well do so, but I'm more interested in swapping part for part, and just kitbashing a DYRL version out of stock elements.  The giant honking sticks on the TV consoles are a grievous eyesore though, and need to go away entirely either way.

Don't know if I'd do anything special to the pilot though, other than repainting a spare Kakizaki or something like that.

Did someone mention needing ejection seat triangle and cockpit skull decals? :D I'm open to doing another run of my DX valk supplemental set.

They've been coming through for many of us. My order from them arrived today. At least one of the members in your position contacted Nin-Nin and asked for a status update. They were told that there was a shipment delay for some of the stock and orders would be going out next week (I think).

Hello,

I would also gladly get one sheet from you please.

Sign me up for one of these.  How do I get one?

-b.

That looks outstanding! I also really appreciate the Skull insignia being just a little lower on the heat shield. I think they're a bit too high with the stock application. Bandai did the same thing with the Hi-Metal R version. Red Comet is legit!

Indeed, I'm glad they decided to make it right for the TV Roy 1S. I'm probably going to sell my Hikaru 1S, the Roy 1S simply looks better to me for one thing, and for another it doesn't have that Goddamned backwards modex number for the sake of "Symmetry" in battroid or whatever nonsense reason they had to make it that way. :rolleyes:

@Kanedas BikeYour Max looks great! 

I am fairly sure the post office lost mine in transit :angry:

Oh man! Well I did insure it and require signature verification to make sure it wasn’t stolen. I hope it arrives though! I am sure you would prefer the Max to a refund :unsure:

I'd be interested in a set as well.

Yeah I would much rather have my custom Max figure. This is the one I was looking forward to the most.

Of all the Macross toys I had shipped this year - why did it have to be the irreplaceable one? Will keep you posted

I guess this is the new reality. Resellers everywhere for every in-demand product. It's been the norm in the sneaker game forever. I guess it's going mainstream.
