Customer Reviews

Fun, Intuitive Transformation, and Nice LookingOverall I am very pleased with the Maia Sterling Shadow Alpha. This is my first Robotech Masterpiece / Toynami mecha, having decided to purchase this after watching the Robotech - The Shadow Chronicles Movie movie (which I liked). I like this toy enough that I will now hunt for many of the other pieces I missed out on before. As described on the package and most item descriptions, this alpha is both plastic and die-cast, giving it a very solid feel. The overall size / scale actually are nice. Not having any other Robotech vehicles (I did long ago as a kid) I didn't run into any scale problems, but I could see people being disappointed if the other ships weren't the same scale (hopefully this isn't an issue). The paint job, coloring of the alpha is fantastic (though it did come with a huge sheet of decals we are supposed to apply ourselves - I'm saving them for a week when I have nothing better to do).The transformation is very straight forward, though I do worry if repetitive use may fatigue some of the snaps. I did have a bit of a problem getting the top engines to snap back in place after returning the alpha to fighter mode. I also had a hard time opening the landing gear - so I decided to leave opening as a challenge for another day. All three modes: fighter, guardian, and battloid look great and more importantly are sturdy. I was very pleased that Toynami went the extra distance and included a compartment to tuck your cyclone in as well as plenty of opening missile hatches. My favorite configuration is as a fighter, which conveniently is how the toy is packaged.The book-like packaging is very nice, and I had no trouble repacking my alpha after playing with it for a bit. The book end art of Maia looks great, so I'll actually display this box (which means I'll probably take it out from time to time and enjoy it more).On a final note, the packaging states that this toy is for people ages 15 and up. I certainly will hide this from my young nephews for a decade or two. To be honest, I know some 30-somethings I'd worry if they were playing with this. While this isn't a reason not to purchase this, this is not really a toy. Instead, this is a pre-made, highly detailed, functional model. Treat it as such, and I'm sure you too will enjoy this. 5Only Two reasons,......It's true, is fragile , it is not recommended as a toy , however, I must say that actually you can hold the gun in its fist, it's just that the design of this gun is different from the more classic models, and is easy to confuse the cartridge with a sort of handle , actually the fist goes in the square hole in the weapon,. In case that you want this as a collectible for your shelf, and you are not plaining to move it to much, really looks quite good , and Being honest I only can think on two good reasons to buy this collectible, first , because you're a big fan of the third generation of Robotech , and this model is cheaper than the VFA- 6H ( blue ), the VFA- 6I ( green ) or VFA- 6Z ( red). The second reason (and the more valid I think) is that you have a Toynami Beta Fighter , the Beta Fighter is another story , very good toy , (yes, I think that handled carefully can be a toy) , and if your have a Alpha Fighter and Beta Fighter,you can build the jet that you see flying along a mountain in the Robotech's openning , ( I do not remember as it is called ) and place it at its base (included with Betah Fighter) , the truth .... looks amazing , well, let some pictures, you will see this model with a Beta Figther VFB-9I (green), and in the last pic you'll see the green Beta with a green Alpha, (at the end I could not resist buying it to match the colors) hope I was helpful , it's my first review , regards!P.D. Good seller, the item arrived in good condition, well packed. 3V2 alpha is dramatically improvedToynami reciently announced they were producing the alpha on the beta production line and the improvement shows this is the second edition of the much maligned alpha they fixed most of the flaws and the quality of the plastic has improved dramatically. If you were put off by the poor quality of the first run alphas then you owe it to yourself to check out the better version they also improved the joints and added more screws where they needed to be. They are still pretty light at least compared to the beta but everything is light compaired to the beta.if your going to buy a beta your going to need an alpha the only downside is its the stealth veritech and don't quite match but they still form up anyway the alpha has improved and now merits a look just remember its an adult collectible not a toy 5Good material but poor cutting and build.The build quality is not good enough to be classified as a Masterpiece quality. There are tough edges and poor alignments, with parts that come off easily.The size and proportion is not very accurate and to scale as well. The human figure is much bigger than the cyclone bike piece. The oversized painted missiles in the arms are half hidden even when the cover is opened for them to fire.When transformed into the plane, the legs look ugly as it protude too far out at the tail despite having pushed all the way in, which appears to be removed in the sample picture to mislead. 2Pick a mode and choose wisely - it won't be the same if transformed!The marketing language for this piece brags about how it's a "true transformable". Well it seems they've also invented the "one-time only transformable", how's that for innovation...?This is the second Alpha fighter model I've owned, I sold off my Scott Bernard one after realizing it wasn't really play-worthy, so I knew going in that this thing could have quality issues. However after hearing the non-recalled Maia Shadow Fighter was the best of the bunch, and since I lacked an Alpha for my awesome new Beta fighter - I felt it was worth risking getting a new one. Well it turns out it IS built slightly better than the Scott/ previous runs - but unfortunately the Maia variant is still cheaply made and poorly assembled. Plastic missile hatches bend awkwardly when opened and scream for you to close them before they snap. Unlike other transforming robot toys, it seems they wanted to have no screw holes visible so they opted to glue everything together, which causes maddening inconsistency and creates compound pieces that don't quite mate with each other for a smooth transformation. Worst of all, once you move something out of its original position, internal wear begins and is irreversible. The wing that was once snug in the correct position will begin to flop around and lose the ability to stay where it was. Some joints like the shoulders simply don't work right and will never hold a pose. The hand does not seem to be designed to hold the gun properly. I spent an hour trying to get the thing back into jet mode, and got it maybe 90% of how it was when it came out of the package. Those arms just won't align right anymore. It doesn't matter if you are mentally prepared, gentle or forceful - you will be frustrated playing with this due to the inconsistent and flimsy choice of plastics and awkward interaction with the metal. If you are OCD about transformations and making things fit right, absolutely stay away because it's not going to be the same jet if it is ever transformed into a robot. I'm giving three stars since at least the packaging is very nice, and it is built slightly better than some of the other variants that have been made, which isn't saying much... If you are like me and just want something to go with that well-made Beta Fighter, this is a viable option - but keep it in jet mode or risk losing your mind should you ever decide to transform it. 3For Display Only - Well Mostly Only For DisplayI have been going back and forth between all the Masterpiece Alpha fighters out there and decided to pick this one because I liked the color scheme. Got it in it is book/box packaging which looks awesome on it's own. After opening it up and looking over the toy I was in child like awe. It looks great without any of the decals attached which I will when I have an afternoon to take my time doing so. Taking my time transforming because accurately to reviews this toy feels very fragile in hand. Their are quite a few parts of the transformation that I was being extremely careful for fear that I would be breaking something. Each mode looks great but I'm partial to the Battleloid mode because I'm just a sucker for giant robot mecha. Any ways this is a great toy for displaying on a high up shelve away from tiny hands. It is very fragile and I would not recommend constant use or transforming it from one mode to another repeatedly. I will probably not be taking my own advice due to the fact that I can't help myself it looks so awesome. 5Not a toy; But an awesome model in a great collector packageFirst of all, I will say I have this toy and pretty much most of the masterpiece collection for Robotech.This toy (the alpha/legioss model) is by far the most fragile one. I think it's due mostly to the manufacturing process rather than the design, but it is fragile as hell. If you plan on treating it like any transformers toy for a kid, think again. It's gonna break and the metal pieces are gonna break off. I have a few used ones in that condition so I can see what happened to them, it wasn't pretty. However, if you treat this like the model that it is (think your granfather's world war II plane models) it is the closest model in design to the actual thing seen in the anime. It also has some really cool features, like a removable pilot and cyclone hatch, accurate missile hatches, and landing gear, that are all super cool.Maia is also pretty cool in my opinion, she's kinda from a lame series, but her character design is cool. And she has a cool looking shadow alpha. Unfortunately the beta that links up with her fighter to make the spacecraft wasn't ever released, but you can link it up with one of the Betas that were released, it looks pretty cool with Annie's.The packaging it comes in is amazing. It's like a big book where you can store the thing in a "forever mint in box" look. Pretty nice, and they all look amazing together on a shelf.But again, NOT a toy. More of something you take out once in a while and display, and gingerly touch, that's it. 5Display, not a kids transformer toy.Packaging is excellent and misleading as to the actual structural integrity of the toy. For any of you who have the olde Alpha fighter from many years ago this one is no where near as good, it's smaller, flimsy, and not proportionate in its plastic to metal ratio. This is not a kids toy. Children will break this thing easily. That being said, it looks very good once you get it into the pose you want. As a display figure it's great looking. The colors are well done, it poses pretty well, and it's totally worth it to put all the decals on it. I have a shelf dedicated to Robotech and this is definitely a great looking piece except for the size but it actually fits with some of the scales of the Bandai robotech toys and some of the older Mospeada. For the price I highly recommend it for anyone who is looking to add to their display shelves. Again, just not for kids unless that's what they want it for too.PS: Be gentle with the landing gear doors and the landing gear itself. The doors come off and the gear is a bit stiff. The back end of a paintbrush can easily press the tab to get the gear doors open without breaking them and the gear itself can be pulled easily with a pair of tweezers. Almost anything that seems loose or wobbily can be fixed with an eyeglasses kit of you have one available. 3better then the 1st release onesi bought this because i was one of the people that got the first release back when it came out and was shocked that it fell apart, this one looks to be in better shape then my old one and looks to be the newer release.Sadly the boxes for the new and old ones are the same so the only thing i have to go one is the new ones have a small hole in jet mode to clip the gun onto, this one does my old one did not.this combined with the Beta Fight looks impressive and makes a great centerpiece on top of my TV right next to my Macross ship 5Not a good Robotech collectionAnyone who want to buy this must know that this item is NOT for a child, but for those robotech collectors (at least 15 years old)!!!!The good: package is very beautiful, the color is good. It has some small tricks and it looks very interesting. It is a 5000 limited item (although this die has been used to produce lots of similar productions).The bad: It has lots of small parts, and is not durable. However, I do not think it is a very well made one when considering about the price.Some parts are not well assembled, the head is extremely loose, the tires are very fragile and are very hard to be put back into the plane, and there are some scratches on the robot's glass. It is very hard to be transformed because some parts are very easy to fall off the plane, the the arms and legs can not be put back into the body to a right position.In general, I am very disappoint about this item. I do not think it is a very good robotech collection.Of course, this is a problem of the manufacture--toynami, but not the seller. 2
