Spot on, I bought this toy

Spot on, I bought this toy after Christmas and was going to review it but did not get around to it. Glad you could do it with full video and all.

I pretty much agree with this review 100% The extras included with the SP version really aren't worth the 4000 yen difference in price.

My toy had a stress mark on one of the three underside fins on the rear of the shuttle. To expose the gun turret you have to pull the body up and the torso doesn't really lock in the extended position. I also find the head very difficult to get out in destroid mode but after watching your transformation video it looks like it tilts forward more than i had it.

PS serial numbers on the Island Premium card are unique

Sealed the Deal

I could not decide if I wanted the re-colored Predaking or the MP Rod. I have been looking at this for a while now but after your review it sealed the deal for me. I just ordered it from BBST and can't wait for it to get here. The only sad thing about this monster is making room for it on the shelves and that means more stuff in the bins. I swear, I have more of my collection in storage than I do on the shelves!

This is one of the few

This is one of the few Frontier designs I actually really liked! I think it is a very worthy successor to the original, and brings it to more prominence than its ancestor as you pointed out.

So... what does it use for weapons in Battroid mode?

Good god that is awesome! I

Good god that is awesome! I don't know much about Robotech or Macross, but I do love the tech. Got an old metal toy of this from a comic shop not long ago, but it's missing the top cannons (and it's green). Thought it was hilarious when I found out it was called a Monster (and sad that I was missing big ass cannons and not just a cockpit like I thought). If I had the cash, I would totally get this without ever having seen it in action. That's just an awesome toy right there.

Saw this beast a couple months ago in Narita airport. Just doesn't have the dough to bring it home

I wonder what tactical

I wonder what tactical advantage the destroid mode has. The gerwalk mode has the guns and the jet mode presumably has the mobility. Why...oh, because it looks cool.
