Yup. I've seen @jenius video before. But I was hoping that Stick's and Ley's fabric would be the same in the end for consistency. :)

They also seem to be generally more pricey so far ($70-80 + shipping versus $59 shipped) . I preordered the BBTS ones even if they say Robotech on them but have been waiting to get a set of Mospeada ones from Japan. So I'm hoping the Mospeada ones from Japan have extra goodies to justify me paying more.

mospeada branded ones cost more?  wonder if there are any extras or better sculpts or something?  deinitely seems to be more stuff in the photos but until they list out everything that comes with each version its just sorta guessing.  *EDIT*  so here are some listing details.  who knows if they are exhaustive though.

 

from hlj...

  • Mospeada
  • Ray
  • Helmet
  • Interchangeable facial expression
  • Interchangeable hands (x4)
  • Replacement chest armor
  • 60mm beam cannon
  • Missile launcher (x2)
  • Forearm armor (x2)
  • Laser Hound (normal x1, long-range shooting x1)
  • Injection nozzle modeling parts (x2)
  • Bike stand
  • Armor cycle connection parts
  • Rear pack
  • Side pack (2)
  • Base for display with connection parts

from bbts...

Box Contents

  • VR-052T Battler Cyclone
  • Rand figure
  • Helmet
  • Base

Yeah- the BBTS stuff doesn't list even the guns they show in the pictures, so that doesn't help. But just from running through the pictures, it looks like the Robotech "Scott" doesn't have a Laser Hound but the Mospeada Stig does. Both have the 60mm beam cannon. I'm guessing the Robotech release will have a lot less goodies.

 

I grabbed one of each (Mospeada and RT) and so expect to have three riding and three in armor mode. I'll mix and match parts, if necessary. :)

I wish we had a clear answer on the RT branded one versus the MOSPEADA branded ones. I ordered two of each with BBTS, since I don't care about the box branding, but what's inside.

If there is a legitimate difference in what's included, I'm going to have to switch to the MOSPEADA ones.

Theyre for 3d prints. Printable at any scale I hope as I need Gurabs at Regult scale.

@Podtastic: But so far he hasnt adequately responded, so I'm going to try Miriya models.

The guy is from Argentina. The seller is not the same guy who does the printing. So it takes longer to get anything resolved quickly. Second; the price is usually is in Argentinian Pesos and figuring international shipping from that country is another issue since they had restrictions. I got nowhere when trying to reach him though Fakebook and Insta-grandpa.

I have purchased from Miriya a couple of times before. He's more responsive although he's from Chile, I believe. International shipping is a bit easier to figure it out. He prints the items himself and is currently swamped with the inbits set in1/48. He might take a bit to follow through.

Both of them are helping the South and Central American community where access to international goodies is a bit limited and way more expensive to acquire than the US.

I wonder if its going to be any easier/cheaper than shipping all the way from the Northern Hemisphere.

I suspect a courier will to have be used for the same reasons as usual.

 

Am I being shadowbanned? I cant even post unless I use a search engine other than google.

Armored mode isn't terrible, but... the less said about the bikes, the better.  Ugh. <_<

If that oversized Invid was going to happen, I might've bit regardless, but there's no way I'm gonna shell out for these tiny figures that scale with nothing.

I'm a Mospeada whore, but I still have some self-respect, you know?

I LOVE the Sentinels figures for their detail, very cool transformation (in my opinion), updated designs that appeal to my personal aesthetic, and just general good looks when being displayed.

These don't look anywhere near as good, obviously. On the other hand, I'm a MOSPEADA whooooooore and these look like they MIGHT be fun.

One of many things that I loved about the old Yamato BGC bikes was that, for me, they were genuinely fun to transform. Probably the only Aramaki design that I ever had fun transforming time after time as a toy.

i'd be happy if these, even if not gorgeous display pieces, end up being resilient enough and designed to be a fun toy.

I want some small fun to handle Mospeada armors near my PC so these are a great option. 

But I hope they don't "self-desmember" at the slightest touch.

Got an order-update email from AmazonJP stating that they are experiencing shipping delays,  Delivery is now expected around 9-3 to 9-6 2021.

I'm assuming this is for Sentinel's Legioss Iota?

 Don't these also have the distinction of being the smallest variable mospeada's ever mass produced?

**On a side note does anyone have pics of the tiny scratch built mospeada ride-armor? I think i remember pics of it standing on a coin Lol

Seriously, that’s hardly a delay from the original 9-1 to 9-3 delivery date.

Not sure. These are listed as 1/28th, and I believe the old Henshin Robo/Gakken ones were estimated (if I remember the Anymoon review correctly) as 1/20th, but looking at the size listed (2.5"), these might be about the same size.
