  1. Past hour
  2. And there's the 1/60 VF-1S weathering edition from Yamato with its corresponding weathering Strike Packs
  3. Great tips, thank you. The release dates for them are about a month apart. I don't imagine that will be a big deal. They will show up when they show up. They didn't ding me more than a few bucks on the conversion as far as I could tell. I converted Yen using an online calculator and then compared to to what I paid using PayPal. Great heads up though. Mandrake bookmarked Thanks!
  4. For future reference with NY: DO NOT BUY ALREADY RELEASED STUFF FROM THEM. They almost always massively overcharge. Do not pay in anything other than Yen, they massively inflate their currency conversion prices. Do not order released and pre-order items together, the released items will wait until the pre-order items have been released to ship, but you'll still pay up-dront for everything. In your case, if you ordered together everything will ship in April or May. Do not compare prices without including shipping with other stores, NY typically upcharges their shipping. For already-released items I suggest the For Sale/Trade forums here or Mandarake. Mandarake is selling sealed unused VF-1Js for about $410 with EMS (fast) shipping to the US.
  5. Hey @sqidd, check out @jenius blog here; http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=4599 Read up and I'm guessing most of your questions will be answered. There are generally only cosmetic differences between later Yamato 1/60 version 2 Valkyries and Arcadia 1/60 (same mold/transformation/etc as Yamato v2) Valkyries. Please don't pay anything close to those eBay prices, there are a lot better deals to be found if you are patient enough. Additionally if you're going to look at 1/48 scale my recommendation is to go with the new Bandai DX Chogokin line. http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=12016 It's still new enough that you can get into it without having to spend too much money. Good luck! -b. PS - Go Green, Go White
  6. I think I'll fit my second on Chuck, but put the strike cannons onto my 31A and leave Chuck's dish.
  7. I just ordered the VF-1S Hikaru Movie Edition and S&S Parts off Nippon-Yasan. $535 to my door (3 day UPS shipping). That seems pretty reasonable actually. I can't imagine I will be able to get them through eBay later down the road for less than that. Now all I have to do is wait for them to show up. Thanks for your help!
  8. Wifey hooked it up for my BDay Friday!!!
  9. That big sucker is a model. Sigh. I literally don't have time for something like that. Too bad, that is awesome! Thanks!
  10. The VF-1S and Parts haven’t released yet. So there is still a chance to purchase both in a pre-order. The wave of orders available for parts at this point will release in April 2020. You missed the window for Dec. However, the VF-1S still releases in Nov. So, you can either pay an upcharge on somewhere like Nippon, or wait until it releases and gamble trying to get it then.
  11. That may be the way I go. I can't find any info on when the Fokker is going to be released. It looks like the Hikaru movie edition in November an the S&S parts for it in December (which I may get). Any info on a Fokker release? Thanks!
  12. I found the site, thank you. Am I understanding this correctly. I can order/pre-order through this site and when they're released they will get shipped to me here in the US? I'm assuming this company is in Japan? I'm going to need the VF-1S movie version and the S&S parts. Thanks for your help!
  13. Amazon.jp currently has 'em for 10% off retail... It's at least a year away -- and will likely cost you twice what the Yamato will -- but it'll be the best 1:48 Roy. So many 1:60 variations to consider... ...and that doesn't even include the new Premium Finish release.
  14. Today
  15. The S&S parts are available for order currently at Nippon Yasan. Your best bet is to order them from there now.
  16. Despite the super-long Kickstarter delay, Cannon Busters definately seems to have been worth the wait.
  17. Instead of decals, the Premium Finish is fully tampoed from the factory. It just depends on if you care about all that or not. If not, I’d still recommend getting the non PF version from Arcadia. Check anymoon.com for detailed comparisons and differences explained on all the releases from Yamato to Arcadia. If you want 1/48, I love the Yamato but at this point, I think you should wait for the inevitable Bandai DX release and join the bloodbath of trying to secure that version.
  18. You may as well wait for the eventual release of the Bandai DX 1/48 VF-1S Fokker...if you do not mind waiting for the best and the biggest fully transformable version
  19. Holy crap! Where do I get one of those!!!! Take my money!!!

    Bandai DX VF-31

    @enphily So the chest and shoulder piece fit in? Compatibility issue is from canards which might fit but can't be folded ?
  21. I looked for a bit, but I have ADD. Sorry. I'm going to have to get the VF-1J (already available). But, I'm really going to need to get the S&S parts when they're released in what is it December? I see talk of buying these items through other avenues than eBay. Can anyone give me some insight into what those avenues are? How it works? Positives? Negatives? Etc? I see something mentioned about pre- orders. How is that pulled off? I have a friend who lives in Japan that I asked if he could source some of this stuff for me. He hasn't really found anything as far as a place to purchase (I'm not sure he worked that hard at it, he's lazy). Is that a good option if it's an option? Have someone pick this stuff up in Japan and then ship to the US? Anyone have a link to where I can send him to get this stuff? Is there a buying tutorial on here that I'm not seeing? Sorry for all the newb questions. I imagine for the pro's on here they all sound really dumb. Thanks guys!
  22. Looks nice. Can you help me by pointing out what is better/different than this guy? Thanks! eBay link
