Evan is going to have to start saving his pennies.

Yesterday, while I was putting together my little linky-link post, friend/roommate/former-Emissaries-&-Robotech Roundtable-guy Evan caught a glimpse of the pics of Yamato's 1/60 Tomahawk figure as I was copying down the URL for the link. As I said, lovely figure, it's on my must-buy list along with the MegaHouse version of Lancer's Cyclone.

As I was continuing to admire the detailing of the Tomahawk in the pics, Evan started getting all wistful about the Defender/Raidar X/Rifleman. He walked over to his bookshelf, pulled down his little die-cast one, started talking about back when he had the old Matchbox one when he was a kid and how his dad put together this giant Battletech map to scale with the Matchbox Destroids and all the memories attached to that mecha. Point being, dude's got a soft spot for that design. Loves it.

Evan, this link is for YOU.



This one's gonna be about a hundred bucks (9,800 yen), like the Tomahawk, and it's coming out in December. Maybe I could get it for you for Christmas, if I'm not penniless by then?

  • Perhaps you have to spend another 100 bucks for the weathering version once Yamato decided to make more money out from the same mould. Hee! Hee!

  • When I saw that Destroid picture, I almost fell out of my chair.
    First the Beta and now THIS.
    Dammit, I thought I was done with the orgy of spending when I bought my last Alpha...
    I wonder if they are going to make a MONSTER MAC II....
    I know what i'm asking for for christmas!

  • Between my love of all things Battletech and my love all things Robotech... these Destroids must come into my posession. Hmmm... only a month until I get back to Japan... *rubs his chin* Excellent...
