    THX to eyesonme78 for the SCOPEDA!

    I'm not 100% sure if it's Yamato but this has their handiwork ALL over it.

    If this sells well (which I'm sure they probably will) we COULD get the Spartan, Defender, and Phalanx.

    MAYBE this could pave the way for the 1/60 Monster that was seen so long ago (in a galaxy far away).

    Sweet! Finally. This would go great with my Konig Monster. It doesn't transform but I hope it has alot of features.

    :drool:  Unbelievable... Within the span of 2 days, 2 of my most-wished for figures that I never thought would happen became reality! Modern regults and destroids! I'm so happy, but my wallet's like 'aw, shit'.

    Yes! :)  Now, if they put out the rest of the Battloids, and you combine these with all the Dougram+Macross Revoltechs, you can have one heck of a game of macrosized pre-'Unseen' Battletech going. :D  The only thing missing would be that mecha from Crusher Joe.

    Very cool.

    For Yamato's quality and the cool factor of displaying these next to my 1/60th Macrosses, I'll look past the non-transforming part.

    And the price tag. I already know that's gonna hurt.

    Here's some lineart to refresh your memories. Now imagine the enemy mecha on the right in 1/60 scale. I believe the old Matchbox Regults were 1/60.

    Sweet. Not too keen on most of the Destroids, to be honest, but I love the Tomahawk and I'm praying we do eventually see the 1/60 Monster!

    Warhammer is the most iconic Battlemech besides Timberwolf/Mad Cat. I used both nomenclatures for Timberwolf so all 'Mech fans would know what I'm talking about. Usualy, I use clan names for clan Mechs, and IS names for IS Mechs.

    They already did a Monster... I presume you guys are wanting a reissue? I was pretty tempted to get him.

    The Monster they did was 1/100 scale, there was a 1/60 scale prototype floating around, that's the one I want to see. Besides, the 1/100 wasn't the same Monster that appeared in the Macross series... it think it was a variation (heh, a variable variation) that appeared in one of the Macross video games. Still, it did look pretty sweet.

    I'm hoping for a Konig Monster, myself. Mmm. Tranformable.

    Wouldn't a 1/60 scale Monster be astronomically huge and therefore even more astronomically expensive? Yammies are pricey enough as it is.

    I should go back to that shop in San Francisco where the guy was telling me Yamato with NEVER do Destroids because it would be to expensive to design them and there is no demand for them and get all up in his grill.

    I started playing Battletech back in the day because they where knocking off the Macross mechs. I loved that game.
