That’s true, but the hi-metal series that preceded it had an ssp set that was compatible with them. once the HMR figures started coming out secondary market prices went through the roof. I don’t understand Bandai’s strategy with Macross. They don’t make anything from the secondary market, but they also don’t make enough figures / parts to meet demand, obviously, or we wouldn’t have all the problems we do now trying to get figures (and accessories if you’re looking for them). They could make more and sell more, but they don’t, and they release pieces so sparingly that people end up buying five at a time just in case they want them later, which makes other fans even more frustrated but also drives the business to the secondary market. I know Bandai practically prints money. I’m sure they have market research or something that says they’re doing what they should, but from this end it seems like they are just leaving money on the table and creating a fan base for these figures that is highly competitive and very insular (in that it is hard to get into Macross figures because of the extremely high price for entry, so the only people they sell to are obsessive fans who need to buy three of everything, leaving no room for anyone else).
