  1. I don't really see the similarity other than they also use metal and the price point is similar.
  2. A little off topic, but members here have compared the Dx line to the metal build Gundams. Amiami has a metal build in stock.
  3. Nice review for both comparisons on the 1/60 and 1/48 scales. I have the same thing about those vertical pegs for the arms under the fighter mode. They should have had some side pegs to connect to the legs. Seeing your side by side of the 1S with so much tampo, makes me think of my Takara seekers. IIRC, I think Shoji also designed these, and the "no step" markings are everywhere but they're less obnoxious because the markings are smaller and seem more realistic. I do like the tampos but for future releases Bandai should take a page from Takara. Sometime I'll dig it out of storage and compare them. @jenius on a related point, the bandai stand is so boring, you have to take it apart for each mode, and it needs some force. Also the 1j stand is boring it only does one mode. for the yammie arcadias, I don't recall which it came with but I got a clear big stand that I prefer over the launch arm (the launch arm looks nice cuz it's like the movie, but it's not that balanced). The clear big stand might have come with GBP (?) and I like that it's sturdy and easily adjustable and has storage options. I got it a while back. I'd expect Bandai to come up with better designs since there are so many better stands out there now I've seen come with similarly priced collectables. That Bandai stand that comes with the $1000 Nu Gundam is a display that might work with the DX. Or some stands for heavier toys have ratchets and locks for flying poses. I don't mind buying a separate stand if it's nice but the stock stand isn't very good.
  4. Awesome collection. No yellowing from UV rays. Haha that's like my collection that's not on rotation display

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Yup, I like those radomes valks too. Thanks for filling me on the rest. Weird that they reissued a Messer, when they should have reissued the 31a.
  6. Comment applies to both quotes above. Bandai's staff don't know much about the franchises they make toys for. The stock for the popular 1S should be more than Max 1a. Also Max was a strange choice for the second dx. Considering the secondary market for 1j, or the preorder madness, Bandai should reissue the 1j. Bandai displayed the movie squadron, so they're probably going to issue Max movie, and Kakizaki movie. But I'd rather buy 1j than Kakizaki since I'm not collecting the squad. But we haven't seen a Roy yet, and it'll be seconds in preorder window.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Hobby search has Messer/Hayate for 22000 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10540715 and Chuck for 24200 if anyone is interested. Are these variants not popular? I haven't watched Delta so I don't know. I like the design though.
  8. My experience with HS has been limited. About a few seconds before it's cart jacked ha ha Joking aside, haven't had any defective items with them so curious to see how it pans out @DYRL VF-1S The stuff I've bought from them are in stock and not huge demand like Figma or Revoltech.
  9. ha ha ha he looked familiar just couldn't place him
  10. haha is that the guy from 47 ronin?
  11. @jenius I like that it was a somewhat realistic paint scheme. Was the market saturated, or was it cuz the colors were not in the cartoon or movie? This is the scenario with NY's defective product, and they banned me without communicating, no offer of points. But then still send me emails about products and greetings.
  12. Bandai should do a low viz 1/48. Second the suggestion of Bandai doing SDF. They're more likely to do the movie version though.
  13. My stick and Rey are ok. The yellow has a stress mark out of the box. Comparing them, the part is cut thinner at the stress mark than the original Stick and Rey.
  14. My toys that aren't in direct sunlight haven't yellowed much. I also use this UV light spray, you can buy it at model stores mr super clear uv or flat
