    My body is ready.

    It's a shame the boxart is so plain compared to what they did for Megazone 23 and Votoms. Even Bandai's Hi-Metal is more entertaining.

    Don't care about box art, I am so glad I put that sucker on pre-order :D  I still like the TV colors though as it does add some flare, the DYRL version is just a tad plain for my tastes. Either way I'm just glad I finally have a decent SDF-1 to replace the Quarter :D

    The rubber parts..not sure if they are called washers, act as cushions to keep the joints firm. If they wear down, the affected joints will loosen over time.

    Whoa what the hell..dude you're even getting rid of Japanese Movie MP Screamer? Why the downsize man? AND the 1/55 Super and VF-11C? I'd keep those man! I don't think I would ever give away a 1/55. That is one toy I loved as a child, thought I was done with when I got my 1st 1/48, ended up craving, and since 2008, realized that the 1/55 is.still.the.best.VF-1.toy. Of course this is all subjective on my part but god damn that toy excels in so many areas and has yet to be surpassed in some of the said areas.

    Co-sign.

    Wow. Good eye. I dunno if I would have noticed that. I would think AmiAmi would hook it up. They just need to let Yamato know and they can get the part for free obviously.

    I thought I'd give you guys first crack at getting these figs before I post them up on MacrossWorld.

    Megahouse Klan Klan Armored Version $160
    Megahouse Sheryl Nome Last Frontier Version $60
    Megahouse Ranka Nyan Nyan Version $70

    All the figures are new and in sealed boxes. Shipping is extra. I can post pics if you need them.

    So the box for SDF-1 is tentatively set at 250mm×500mm×250mm or 9.8" x 19.7" x 9.8", anyone care to guess the EMS for this monster?

    in a bad way, I'm kinda hoping the SDF-1 will go the way of the Macross Quarter, which is 50% off at HLJ right now...
