Hey, does everyone have pics of Roy VF-1S with DYRL strike parts with black jolly roger insignia applied? I am thinking of doing ghetto DYRL Roy until the real one is released but I have no strike parts yet, looking for a good deal.

Not exactly. I have three DYRL VF-1S Hikaru's that were custom'd into three Roy's that have Strike packs and some naked SDFM Roy's.

IMO it seems really nit picky to not put Strikes on the SDFM Roy if you like the Strike look.

Looks good! I really should give it a try, thanks!

TV Roy with TV super parts is just as cartoon inaccurate anyway :)

Exactly!! I'm waiting for DYRL Roy.

Damn that is impressive!  That's not just dedication, it's obsession LOL!  Though I can't blame you.  I've already acquired a DX Roy and his Arcadia VF-0S so I feel you.  I'll probably never be able to be as committed as yourself but I certainly can appreciate it!

It's... beautiful!

Is that a KO on the right? I think I've had the same one as a kid.

Another note: Roy's color scheme is just timeless and superior. Sorry DYRL Hikaru, you're just a ploy to sell more toy variations.

Huh, I don't think I've ever seen an upscaled KO of the Takatoku 1/100 mixed with some 1/55 parts before

The ones with red arrows are KO's (can't see the one with the blue boosters). I call the 1/55's Junky Monkeys.:p Man, they're pretty bad! I'm still on the lookout for two more. One came in a "Happy Meal" in Indonesia or something and the other is a Sofubi deal. I've only ever seen one and it was pretty much rotted away.

I'm thinking at some point I may go full bonkers and get all of the 1/55, 1/48 and 1/60 releases from Yamato, Bandai, Arcadia, etc (the 1/48 Weathering for example) so I really do have all of them. Maybe not though. I'd have to take a hard look at what space I have to play with.

I'm kind of surprised you don't have a single V1 Yamato and joke machine in there somewhere - at least that I can see. Still, that's one impressive Roy collection.

Back row second from right, clip on the top of the heat shield gives it away

As do the proportions of the chestplate

Well the whole sculpt really.  ;)  Still amazing how good those looked when they first came out.  OK, enough about the Yamato V1, back to your originally scheduled programming.

@sqidd isn't a SD fan; otherwise he'd have them!

I buy any super-deformed Valkyrie I find...  I'm proud of every Roy I own that sqidd doesn't. :p

Banpresto's 1999 VF-1S Fokker Special is pictured here with the DX Chogokin, in a feeble attempt to steer the thread back on-topic.  ;)

Oh boy, I can't believe it...i just received an email from NY saying that my order for TV super parts is in "preparation in progress"...Maybe they really did change something in their management.
