You know, the rarity of the original is what made the Elint so desired. Having it in this form is nice for completists, but since it's not rare, it kind of reveals itself as just another variant that was in one small shot of the movie.

I'll pass and maybe keep an eye out for somebody unloading an original who is looking to "upgrade".

We must equally honor and respect and praise those soldiers who do not have guns as they knowingly go into battle with a phased array radar and a glass eye...

Exquisite.

The rarity of the 1/55 is part of its appeal only for some folks. There are a lot of people who just love DYRL and all the designs that go with the film (well, certainly the Elintseeker and the Super Ostrich). I, for one, just love the clunky, techy, utilitarian look of the Elintseeker. Always have.

Sure, I wouldn't mind having a vintage 1/55, but they're so damn expensive, I'd probably be afraid to play with the thing. Ideally, I'd just wish Bandai would reissue the thing! But without a prospect of that, I'll gladly take this Yamato 1/60 v2.0.

Supposedly, more 1/55

Supposedly, more 1/55 reissues are on the way, though I do not know which ones or when. That being said, they may be part of the Origin of Valkyrie line I covered.

Sorry, I don't remember

Sorry, I don't remember where. I was doing research for the Origin of Valkyrie line months ago and came across a random forum (I don't remember which) and they said it there. I didn't check to confirm since it was irrelevant to me at the time.
