    The bandai's look great. I need to pop some more toys on ebay so I can get one.

    I had to laugh that at the top of page 1 it says "Page 1 of 48". This thread has hit the magic number.

    Well I used some crazy glue to put the top of the Zero's hand back on but a loose test proved that the bond was not sufficient. So it's back to square one. Perhaps a more substantial amount is in order along with some reinforcing points.

    Pretty close to just giving Overdrive's service a call and replacing the whole bloody arm. :( 

    Hell I'd even pay $15 at HLJ at this point.

    Hmmm. I'm surprised the Krazy glue didn't work. For simple task I like this I would think it would glue on just fine. I used the "advance formula" version and it pretty much sticks anything to anything.

    Thats what I'm using. The advanced formula precise tip for small jobs.

    I mean it held on well enough but I didn't even use the pressure needed to pull the hands out from the arm during transformation and it came off.

    I suppose it's possible that some gorilla glue residue may be left behind and causing some problems. I'll try to scrape what I can see off with a hobby knife though I figured I had done enough of that already.

    I might just not have used enough.

    Your wish has been answered (well, sort of). Spotted this over at Yamato... umm sorry, Macross World forums.
    Way to go Bandai, 1x Ghost in an already exclusive set.:thumbdown  I guess they're hoping for hardcore fans to spring for 3 sets.

    The VF-25G set looks interesting. I wonder if 1/60 Ranka can fit in the cockpit.

    The link from the earlier post also has some new pics of the 1/60 Messiahs including the packaging for VF-25F.

    Super VF-25G and RVF-25 now have their crotch armor. :thumbs2:

    The models are still Bandai, so they win no matter what. ;) 

    Anyway....I see the 1/60 boxes are ready to go, so come on Bandai, pack those puppies up and get them under our trees!

    I gotta wonder if the VF-25's will have an eventual armor pack to go with them at a later date. I mean you almost never see Ozma without his full armor.

    EDIT: I didn't see Type-R's pic, which answered my question for me.

    I eagerly await the reports. Although I think it's safe to assume since I haven't heard one complaint about the 1A.

    I wonder if there is any kind of possibility, slim or insane as it may be, that Toynami will bring any of the Frontier stuff over through the Tamashii brand...

    Blame Tatsunoko and Harmony Gold.

    They're why Big West / Bandai Visual can't market to the US.
