Yeah, definitely thought it was an odd scale, especially if they are planning on more 1/100 scale Zentraedi figures in the future.

OTOH, if I get a free one I'm not going to complain either.

Yep, pay up front. Even for the oversized Graub.

There is the option of four payment installments using PayPal. I think it was over two week periods. :unsure:

Hmm  i tried to do the 4 payment thing but i didn't see any way to select that option. It only allows me to pay all upfront.

It was a PayPal option. It could be localised or depend on your account setup... :unsure:

 The fortunate thing about these being RT toys is that we won't have to worry about them being ludicrously tiny compared to Breetai, as in that supposed official Macross size chart.

I really hate that chart since I was so used to how they appeared in the show that scenes like that soldier sharing a smoke or max getting a new wardrobe for his Valkyrie just don’t make sense. The chart works great for sizing the mecha with the pilots though, but maybe the alien mecha should have been bigger

Let's be fair, there's a LOT of reasons that Max putting a zentradi uniform on his Valk doesn't make sense. Scale's just one of them.

it won't receive approval from Harmony Gold and/or Big West, and will simply remain among the dozens of other unproduced MEP figures

Which figures are you referring to? The only ones that I can think of (probably because I haven't been paying attention) were the Regent, Regess, and the Hellcat, which I remember seeing 3d printed prototypes of but seem to have disappeared since then (or maybe I'm not looking hard enough).

I was actually hoping to pick up the New Gen/MOSPEADA stuff, and the Sentinels will always have a place with me just because of how much I enjoyed the books when I was a kid.

Apart from the five Invid figures already mentioned, MEP has also publicly displayed prototypes for:

Others have been mentioned on Facebook, but I don't count 'em until physical prototypes have been confirmed...

...but yeah, you're not looking hard enough. :p

Not maybe, definitely.  

For the pilot to fit Zentraedi mecha would have to be - as PC's Glaug pilot figure demonstrated in 3d - much larger.

Does anyone know if Sentinel toy will be at this weekend's wonder fest?

I can't find the location on the webpage map:

:good:

I just checked that link and I didn't see Sentinel/千値練 listed.

That's right, I remember those last three. I missed those figures, though.

I'm going to tell myself that I didn't MISS them, I just didn't care enough to notice... (because, you know, niche collecting over here)

@jenius noted in his review that they look like they have attachment points on the leg for a tread, along with the display arm for fighter mode looking like a tread connection. But nobody has seen any prototypes and such yet. I'll be happy just to get an indication of PO for the Houquet ride armor soon.

I'm in for a few each of the 1/48 scale MEP Toys figures.  The larger one is just too small for what I'd want it for, which would be for the Sentinel ride armors.  If they upscaled it a bit to scale with those, I'd be in for a few of that one as well.

Well its not going to happen if they cant even get 200 orders to justify the 167mm.

The 176mm typo size (closest to 190mm) would have suited me better than 167mm (too small) or 209mm (too large), but I could use either in a pinch. The 1/48 is pretty much a useless size for a toy, its way too small a toy to pit against even the Revoltech Regults.

I disagree with this completely.  The Gurabs weren't that big.  Size charts confirm it.

I love scale accuracy and having them like that reminds me how small they were.  It's why I like the Sentinel toy size.  It confirms to me just how tiny an aircraft the Legioss was in comparison to Yamato or Bandai's 1/48 VF-1s.  There are larger Inbit mecha.....it's just not the Gurab or scout for that matter.  I think it would, however, be cool to have a Gurab or scout at a scale that goes with the Sentinel or Beagle ride armors.

 

I realize the size makes the Gurab underwhelming on their own.  But their danger was never as individuals but more in swarms, hence getting more than a few. It also makes the poseable figures and bikes included with the Sentinel Legioss all the more viable now that they'd have enemies to pose with.

 

Just my opinion, anyway.

Hello @mantifists

You arent disagreeing with anything really.

I know the official canon scales and I reject them in favour of my own which have absolutely nothing (mostly) to do with anything but my own desires.

My preferred scale (please nobody have a canon-attack) would be something roughly like this. Human marine in middle.

The OS Invid Project was probably the closest I would have gotten to a toy at least close to this scale.

I get what you're saying.  I think what I disagreed with was you saying that 1/48 scale was a useless size for this toy when what you meant was 1/48 was a useless scale for you.

 For what it's worth, I do hope they make the larger version as more options are always better.  

Personally, for me though, it doesn't make sense to shell out for a scale that's in between the two scales I'd like, even if it meant getting the larger scale built.  That would essentially double the cost for the larger scale I really want.

The B2Five's are these (and look infinitely better):

Not to mention the R word but apparently toynami is releasing theses statesides R branded.  BBTS just sent me an e-mail about new cyclones from toynami and i think they are these guys rebranded.  https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/169667

did these guys ever get a mospeada branded release?

This is the first time we're going to see this in color. I don't remember B2Five put those Mospeada figures on PO on their website prior of this BBTS post.

At 1/28 scale, 2.5in figures, this sample photos looks cool. :good:
