I just got my Rick Hunter Robotech Masterpiece Edition in the mail today. All I can say is it is AWESOME. The articulation is like nothing I've seen in this style of toy in either the original Robotech stuff or Transformers. The detail of paint and accessories (cockpit ladder, rocket packs, removable Rick Hunter) are also a step up from what I remember of the past toys.
I'm not a MIB collector and usually the door isn't even closed before I have the figures out of the box but this one has me rethinking that. The packaging allows one to totally remove the robot and most of the accesories without removing any tape or anything else that would damage the packaging. Even with that being true, all I can do is stare at the toy in the box. I did take it out once to give it a good once over but I can't bring myself to keep it free from it's plastic and cardboard tomb.
I recommend anyone who's a fan of Robotech or the Valkyrie fighter toys to pick this one up (and the next 4). My girlfriend, who's never watched Robotech, was absolutely amazed by this thing.
