CollectionDX talked with George Sohn of Toynami, and for you Robotech MasterPiece Collection(MPC) fans, the following news will brighten your day:
George said that the factory that did the Beta Fighters now have all the molds for the Alpha, and will tooling them from here on in. There is a possibility that we will see all plastic giftsets that include an alpha and beta in matching colors.
Aoshima was responsible for engineering and tooling of the Beta Fighter, and it is regarded as one of the very best toys in the MPC line. An all plastic release would be a more affordable option for fans, and reduce joint looseness, due to the lighter weight of plastic.
The plastic MPC Voltron has been successful for Toynami, and an all plastic Alpha Fighter has been on the wishlists of fans for quite some time.
