    Ok I know some of you have this bad boy so let's see em :D 

    Have to say I am damn impressed by this bad mother! The QC issues seem to be at a minimum, but the big thing with mine is the one leg in jet mode seems to not want to stay in position quit right but nothing huge.

    Havint TF'd him yet but so far this toy rules and is highly recommended! Definitely the best Yamato fig I have ever seen up close, and I just came back from seeing CDN's collection.

    More pic's to follow :D

    How much is that? That's the second Robotech toy that's really caught my eye.

    Yeah, how much? Or price range?
    Was debating about getting into Robotech after I finish G1.
    But then again, I don't think that will ever happen.

    How many people are going to say this is a Robotech toy before one of the Macross police comes crashing through the thread?

    God that thing is beautiful! I need it bad. But, like the other Macross toys I want, I think I'll wait for the second run. They're almost always perfect by the time they get past the first full production run. And you KNOW that thing will be circulated enough to get more than one run.

    *woop woop!* Macross police!!! This is the YF-19 Alpha One "Excaliber" from Macross Plus, which isn't part of the Robotech continuum.

    That and I'll repost some of the pictures I posted in Cool Stuff Ver 3.

    More pics, yesterday I painted the panel lines and threw some stickers on it. Oh, and I finally crammed Isamu into that cockpit.

    That's a pretty sweet jet mode but I'm just not a fan of the robot mode. I don't know why...

    could you possibly do a couple side-by-side robot mode pics with the 1/72 version? that's the one I have, and I'd really like to see the differences, since it's so obvious in jet mode.

    Roughly $200, not including shipping. Mileage may vary depending on where you buy it from.
