Any one coming to NYCC? It will be display at NYCC, and you might even pick one up from NYCC if I can get it in early.
Sadly no, but if you could take a lot of photos and post some impressions of the figure once you get it in hand it would be greatly appreciated
I will be getting test shot from Master Made, and will be send out to reviewers for review. NYCC will likely have some in stock for distribution. Getting an early batch. I think those who are coming, or can come should try their best to make it to NYCC

I've wanted to own a transforming SDF-1 for many years, although I'm too cheap to fork out the cash for a vintage Matchbox toy in good condition. That said... I generally dislike super-deformed things... including this one. D'oh.
I got mine yesterday. It's a cool figure. Lots of really crisp paint and what feels like good plastic quality. Mine has a small stress mark on the back of the left shoulder and the gun on that side kinda flops around (it seems like the shoulder assembly doesn't press together tightly enough. I'll probably fix it with some nail polish), but that's really the only issue. Other than that, it does exactly what it sets out to do - create a cute, displayable version of the SDF-1 with the same basic color pattern and transformation as the old $300+ Yamato figure.
The mini Valkyries it comes with are bigger than I expected, and are made of nice hard plastic. They can stand on their own or you can mount them up on little stands.
Overall it's a really nice figure. The box is kinda thin cardboard (mine came pretty mangled, despite a heavy layer of packing material from Lunartoystore) but other than that it really feels like a high quality piece.
