Please tell me the CDX Headquarters is hidden deep in a mountain/at the bottom of the ocean/beneath a swimming pool/behind a waterfall.

Disassembly isn't for customization...

...it's for simulating what happens to every Destroid on the show EVER. "Destroid" is something of a grim pun...

I'm almost hoping that they go off into MSV land with these guys--inventing completely new types of Destroids that never were in the show. (The Miyatake Macross Design Works already depicts an alternate Tomahawk, for example.) Maybe a "mobile command post" Destroid? "Ammo Resupply" Destroid? Heck, I might try to gin something up myself. I always did think that the Big D's got something of a raw deal in the series...

Heck, they might just junk the original Gladiator design and go with a new concept based on this leg platform.

It sure is nice

I like it, only real complaint is it looks out of place near 1/48s, of course not in scale with them. I just have to find a way to rearrange the collection to give it the wow factor it deserves. Also that D7 is a bitch to apply they should have made it a single sticker with a cut-your-own as an option for those that want to customize with different letter & number combo.

I really hope they don't include "shoot-your-eye-out-goodness" anytime some. For me it's one of the differences between a toy and a model. Plus those spring things always break.

RE: it sure is nice

... and that is excactlly why it needs "shoot-your-eye-out-goodness". It's a toy NOT a model. I don't collect models. ;)

Fair enough

Fair enough guys. The only reason I consider it a model is the price range and how easy it would be to break. With the exception of this guy most of the Yamato Macross stuff is fiddly to transformer at best even the pros suffer breakages. "You say tomato, I say tomato, we all say Yamato..." mmm... that expression doesn't really work when typed?!? Maybe it's one of those "I collect comics", "I collect graphic novels" kind of things.

I prepaid Angolz for this

I prepaid Angolz for this and the Lancer CM's Ride Armor back in August and have not received any shipping notice, nor have they responded to any of my inquiries. Is there anyone here that has a more direct line to them who can assist me?

Size?

Would these look OK (i.e. not HORRIDLY out of place) with the Bandai re-issue Valks?

I prefer toys, not 'collectibles', so I'm not really looking to swap Bandai for Yamato Valks!

Oh, and hi guys... GREAT site!

The Bandai/TT toys are 1/55

The Bandai/TT toys are 1/55 scale, and the chunkiness of them makes them appear to be even bigger.

Side by side it might appear a little odd since you are comparing a modern toy that is sculpted with proportion and display in mind to a toy that was designed to look good but take a beating while being played with over 25 years ago.

You might want to track down the old Matchbox/Exo-Force toy instead. It's cheaper, pretty easy to find, the same scale, and chunky like the Valk since it's nearly as old. It's also very much a "toy" instead of a collectible.

Hmmmm

I was wondering about the Exo-Squad versions... I think I'll grab one of them, and see how it looks.

Thanks!
