Thanks!  Tweaked it a bit to be more "anime" accurate...LOL

Looks cool.  If you wanted to do a little more to it, maybe curve the legs and head laser going clockwise a little bit.

I think I am done with that one....unless you ever decide to re-pose it....I basically took your original pose for this one....and flipped it!  :D

...If you decide to pose the DX TV Super VF-1S for this poster....

...I will definitely redo it!  Oh and maybe since you will have it out, you can then pose it for the Kawamori poster...to keep me busy!!!:lol:

@jvmacross I used the warp tool to curve the image a little kind of like the helmet reflection.

The DX VF-1S with Super Parts pic to be used behind the 3 figures will probably be posted later today.  :good:

That looks great sh9000.  I'm still waiting for my TV fast packs to come in the mail.  Well, I guess the next round is still preorder.

Thanks.

Actual conversation today when I showed my wife the pictures from there:

Me: Look what's coming for me in June!
Wife: Don't you have that already.
Me: NO, those two are the Yamato 1/60. This is a 1/48 DX Chogokin like my Roy and Max.
Wife: And don't you have a smaller one too?
Me: That's the Hi Metal R! And that one doesn't come with a fan racer.
 

Why is Hikaru Wearing his UN Spacy Helmet in the Fan Racer?!?!?!

Apparently, Youtube isn't available in Japan so Bandai just went on memory of the almost 40 year old episode and had forgotten Hikaru had given the helmet to Minmay to wear....:rolleyes:

 

Cool....now I know exactly when this cel appears during the episode....at 20:04 mark...

Sheesh so complicated. It's been uh.. only a month.. since I rewatched the first 8 eps.. Hikaru has no un spacy helmet in the opening scenes, that weird thing around his head with goggles instead..

Then he gets in the VF-1D and amazingly there's a nice helmet in there the color of his future uniform... 

I suspect the toy just comes with one Hikaru figure so that's why the helmet. 

He DOES get back in the fan racer, with Minmei after the VF-1Debacle... WITH helmet, And the space fold happens and he has the helmet when they get caught in the lost part of the SDF-1.. so I guess I was mistaken and the orange civilian flightsuit with the un spacy helmet is accurate, at least for those few minutes... as Jvmacross said above.. 'from a certain point of view."

Yes, but you asked:

The short answer is because we are getting BANDAI'D!!!  He never wears it AT ALL while piloting the Fan Racer....Minmay does....

So expect a super limited version of her figurine wearing the helmet that will only come packed with the first 10 GBP stand-alone sets ordered directly via the Tamashii website!

Ah yea see my memory is filling in things not there! Trying to subconsciously make excuses for Bandai I guess

Pardon me for not being aware if the answer has already been stated, but is there any word on whether a Super VF-1J in Max colors will be forthcoming this year?

No, it hasn't been announced in any capacity. A Max 1J was shown wearing a GBP at a show but that doesn't mean much.

As jenius stated...the closest insinuation of it came from a GBP in Max colors....which was sporting the same head as that of a Super VF-1J Max...

I think it is a good bet that we will be getting TV Max and Millia Super VF-1J's....Bandai is good at milking their molds
