    That movie "Stealth" due out this summer with Jessica Biel and Jamie Foxx is such a rip off of Macross Plus... :rofl:

    True.

    But Beta Fighter's are some of the hardest figures to find back in the 80'. Not many were produced so I'm pretty stoked about Toynami releasing this.

    The Alpha retailed around $80 to $85.

    I guess it's safe to say the Beta will be somewhere in the ballpark of $120 to $130. I SHIT YOU NOT.

    :eek3: goes with the trend of pricing I guess. Wonder if it'll be worth it, like will it be fully transformable, could you paint your own color scheme etc etc

    I'm sure it'll be worth it seeing as how there hasn't been a Beta Fighter (Tread in Japan) made for quite some time.

    It's gonna be a real hyped up item around the Robotech community.

    I'm pretty sure Toynami will milk that mold for every penny. IF the initial release (Scott Bernards) sells well then we'll see versions for the other characters.

    "ROBOTECH, the 85 episode epic series as you know it, was derived from three entirely separate anime shows that aired in Japan in the early 1980's. The animation was edited together and a hybrid story was added to make the three separate series mesh together as one long epic story - Robotech. It was then brought to the U.S. and the rest of the world outside of Japan by Carl Macek and Harmony Gold" (thanks to my bud lebhead)

    The Macross Saga = Super Dimensional Fortress Macross

    The Southern Cross = Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross

    The New Generation = Genesis Climber Mospeada
