    Yeah, they may just be issuing a crack warning for all Yamato valks, after the VF-1 incident. (though really, Bandai should get warnings too, for the -25/29 waist/nose hinges, and the -171's shoulder triangles)

    Lol maybe they assume people know because it became an almost common issue with Frontier DXs before the Revival versions were released.

    Goddam, the -1J is getting some love lately! It's great!

    That said, not sure I need a non-transforming VF-1J.

    Another sweet little morsel for my ongoing Tiny Session collection. Pretty much on par with the others.

    One side of the box filled! Hoping that other side will eventually fill with Sound Force, 11, 17, 21, VF-1… keep ‘em coming!

    The tiny session VF-19 Kai is borderline canon, it looks pretty close to the flower girl’s plush

    Has Bandai put out a release date for DX YF-21? I will be in JP next month and it would be great to get one in person.

    Hopefully one day Bandai will make 1/48 scale Valks for series other than the original Macross. It would solve the problem of the shoulder joints plus they wouldn't look so tiny and skinny next to the DX VFs.

    Plot twist but hoping Bandai makes a more toyetic perfect transformation mainline of VFs starting with the Sunrise anime on the way and to expand by making toys from previous Macross series, but designed/engineered by either PLEX or the people behind Tiny Sessions. Leave the collectors stuff for the DX line or other companies that tend to do a better job like Arcadia.

    Yes please, 1/48 YF-19 would be the shit. Would need ratchets out da azz though. Would become a floppy pos if not within couple x of handling it.

    Dunno. HMR, which I have several of, doesn't scratch the itch Arcadia does at 1:60, and, although it may not always be realized, the higher 1:48 scale obviously allows for a lot more.

    It really makes me marvel that, aside from human figures, KCs greatest accomplishment was to show up Bandai for not doing light and sound effects at 1:48 when they have done it, at least lights, at 1:72.

    If Bandai took up that gauntlet, it would be glorious.

    Not surprisingly that Gamilin is right behind Guld, no doubt that M&M’s version will follow as well.
