    Cool stuff, though that "masterpiece" tag is being thrown around a little too liberally now

    Yes, the bike become the armor, they are the land troops while the Alphas cover the sky

    Wow... I wanted one of those SOOOO bad, back when Robotech was still on TV!!

    I remember seeing a photo of one on some Japanese toy packaging, and my best friend and I freaked. It seemed like they'd made the impossible come true, pure divine super-cool mecha action figure mana from heaven...

    Bearing that in mind, I'm sure that owning one now wouldn't live up to those memories. ;)

    I believe the term "master-piece" is meant to be the definitive version of a toy.

    I thought it was a MP Cyclonus.

    Much more excited about that, but this is pretty cool also.

    EDIT: Eh, Toynami. They tricked me once with their 'Masterpiece' Valks. Bought four at once before I changed over to Yamato.

    I hear masterpiece and I see intricate detailing, superior poseability, complexity and maybe die-cast. Size doesn't matter (like SOC Xabungle / Walker Gallia).

    Wait, how big are the Xabungle/Walker? I just purchased them, are they tiny?

    Yeah, Xabungle is smaller than a deluxe. Walker Gallia is slightly bigger.

    If it’s anything like that Alpha fighter I had to send back they should call it Master- pieces.

    Yeah, I guess the term "Master Piece" doesn't apply to Toynami! LOL! I bought the VF-1S and it was total crap IMO!

    whoa, really? I didn't even notice that it was by Toynami till now, what kind of problem were people having with the Alphas? I bought a Garland by Yamato, and the friggin' shoulder plastic crumbled to pieces, still trying to figure out how to fix it :( 

    Hey Razerwire, I know that this is not Transformer news, but is it News and Rumor worthy? :D

    My Alpha is fine but I wouldn't touch the Toynami Valks with a 400' pole.
