    Not sure whether this has already been reported:

    http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=BAN11705&mode=retail&picture=out

    I know it's not an official transformer but it is definitely tf-related since this is the exact same mold that was used for G1 Jetfire. :p 

    Anyways, a good opportunity for newcomers to compliment their encore re-issues with a brand new Macross Bandai Jetfire toy re-issue. Too bad a re-paint in G1 Jetfire colours is probably out of the question...

    EDIT: The price suggests that battle armour won't be included imo...

    Doesn't look like fastpacks are included, and while getting both is tempting for the hwole 25th anniversary thing, that mold just isn't that great. I'll stick with my Yamato valks and vintage jetfire. Maybe if the packaging kicks ass or something, but I just don't wanna jump on the pre-order bandwagon for these guys just yet.

    Wait, they are reissuing them again?
    Not that it is a bad thing though.

    If you had asked me yesterday I would have told you that those are the best you can buy. But I finnaly took out my yamato 1/60, which I thought was very flimsy and did not hold together well. But I have seen the light and found how to lock the joints and found it to be a very nice figure.

    My only problem with the bandai figures is that the heads look funny.

    They are very cool, but I bought that one and the other re-re-release for 25 each a few years back.
    Is there something extra special about these?

    Wait a few months, those hips will loosen like hell!
    Not that I know of, just that it gives guys like me a chance to get them. I stupidly overlooked these years back in favor of the 1/60 parts swapping Yamato VF-1.

    I cant believe its not Jetfire. *waits for someone to actually get this joke*

    I still think the whole intermingling of TF and Macross franchises is unnatural.

    I'd buy one if it came with armor.

    100 bucks? That's a pretty huge mark-up. HLJ is only charging 75, but you can't pre-order till May.

    I might have to pick one of these up, wish it had the fast packs though. Definitely more interesting to me than the new 1/60.
