If from HLJ or similarly priced, then yes. I'll hold off on NY prices for now.
Put me on the list. The armor/super packs are the true stars of Macross Frontier to me. The way they really change the look of the valk in all modes while remaining able to transform is just awesome. Probably the best legacy Frontier will leave on Macross, at least design wise. I was hoping that the CF would get these, now my favorite Valk from frontier will get one of the best accesories ever.
Yeah, the NY prices are halfway to the wacko prices on Ebay. Hopefully some of the stores will have a few available when the thing is realeased due to cancellations, non-paying customers, etc.
The armor didn't look good to me at all on Alto's 171, probably because I find that deco to be too busy to begin with and the colors just clashed to much for me. On the CF it looks amazing.
Man I am super excited for the Macross Plus Blu-ray box now!
Wish I could go to those screenings
That's an impressive array of bonus features - I'd love to see that research trip footage. Interesting how I can easily fork over 17000 Yen for a toy but I balk when I see that same amount for a DVD set.
Amiami should still have some...next best price after Amazon Japan
It comes with a lot of stuff though...PLUS....it's an official release, a blu-ray, and HD Remaster...not a VHS to DVD transfer...which the Manga DVD's were despite claming they were HD Remasters.
If anything it has English subs for the movie, the one that matters...and since it's not likely that Big West will challenge Harmony Gold in US courts...and with that it isn't likely that Harmony Gold would even bother with a Macross Plus release let alone blu-ray...
The high price is worth it imo.
Count me in!
I think the 1st wooden prototype was in Ravens colors, might have been in Toyfare magazine or Wizard, or 1 of the old gaming magazines.
I think the DVD releases did have subs.
I'm not saying the high price isn't worth it, just that I find it amusing how 17000 for a toy barely phases me but when I see it on a DVD I do a double-take. Both are entertainment in the form of plastic.
Oh ok I can see where you're coming from now. I do get more enjoyment out of toys.
Nonetheless...seeing this bluray set readily available..being that it's a Macross item...by Bandai Visual.....
I dunno Tamashii(Bandai's Collectors Division) can learn a thing or to from the Visual(TV/movie) division...
Holy god those MDE's are HUGE! Group-buy STAT!
Images courtesty of antibiotictab at MW
DAYUM you can poke an eye out with one of those!
In other news my VF-17S shipped.
Awful lot of VF17S being shipped around these days; this is the third time [counting mine] in the past 2 days!!
Did we get a mass-VF17 panic love attack or something?
Has anyone else actually ordered the armour parts for the VF-171 CF aside from me yet? I was originally a bit down on the price for some spare bits of plastic, but these latest pictures made me glad that I did.
They do seem to offer a lot, A LOT more bang for the buck than the super parts for the VF17. They cost more or less the same, one pack has tons of missiles and armour for the valkyrie, the other has four pieces of plastic.
If I had\could afford a VF171 CF then I'd be all over those parts, trust me.
I'm not going to lie I only bought one due to the panic. I was going to end up with one sooner or later.
I won't lie either. I bang my head hard against the wall for passing on at least two VF17D with fastpacks for 20.000 yen. VF17S was never my first option. But with all the panic from Yamato\Arcadia, I'm not taking my chances. I'd rather get a taste of the mould now, while there's still options for less than 200 USD, than wait and have to spend 300+ USD either way.
Yes! Even though I don't have a 171CF waiting on preorder, I still want to get a set of these parts. I intend to have a CF some day.
Where is it available for preorder?
As awesome as the MDEs look, the 171CF armor parts set is still a no go for me.
I don't want the armor, only the wings and bombs but it's not worth paying just for them.
Also, the MDEs and reaction missiles are so enormous thay they won't be able to mount in battroid mode (without unlocking the backpack), making the set even less desirable.
This one will be staying in fighter more for me.
