    Bandai DX VF-31

    Thanks @jenius. Just watched your vid. I wasn't folding the radome on the outside hinges. Now there's enough clearance for the landing gear.

    Thanks @jenius, I'll check out your website. Keep up the cool vids!

    Noob question: the radome in fighter mode is longer than the rear landing gear. How do you get it so the landing gear extends more than the folded up radome for the tarmac? Also in fighter mode, the transparent stand piece locks into the underside of the cockpit, and tabs into the left shin, but there's a gap and it doesn't tab into the right shin. From @jenius review of the first vf31, it tabs into both shins. Does it tab in with radome folded underneath? thanx

    I’m looking at more photos of it, it’s color scheme is similar to vf25s or mpm starscream takara version. That’s a shame if they don’t re release it. A brownie ver could be cool. Or a low vis. Weird that they don’t milk the mold like they did with the vf31 backward wings. I like the missiles on the legs. The 31a head looks like evangelion. SNL says one to display, one to mint, one just in case. Or one in each mode. Hehe

    Thanks Jenius I watched your YouTube guides. That’s crazy, I thought the scalping on the dx vf1 anf vf25 was excessive. Usually the cannon fodders are cheaper because they are less popular and plain colors. I’ll wait for a reissue or repaint. It’ll be a while because I have long list of anime to catch up on, haha.

    This is my first vf31 So my comments might be old news. I haven’t watched Delta yet. I like the improvements and engineering over the vf15v2. The cockpit torso area is so much improved. The dx vf1 is still easier to transform though. the design and aesthetic are really nice. I like the radome over the gunpod rectangle thing. It seemed like it was there to fill out the empty space where the arms used to be on the Vf25. It doesn’t have something to peg into in battroid though so it might be loose in the long run, but that’s the same with the gun pods. I didn’t like the parts forming shield on the vf25 though. Although the arms are easier to transform, hiding them in thick cutouts in the wings isnt as good as the vf25 or vf1 as a design. Seems lazy to hide them in those cutouts. the backpack wings kibble is even bigger than the vf25, and looks weird, and is back heavy. The cape on the vf1 could open up as wings in battroid mode or close as as cape/tail so it had minimal kibble. The landing gear in the knees are joke. There’s room in the shins for proper landing gear. One foot is improved over the vf25. The other foot recesses back in with minimal manipulation. The legs look a lot like the 171. I don’t know what the green things are in the leg engines but it looks like it has to do with the square and L parts. there are a lot of double hinges and are these stress points in the future? I had a vf25 double hinge that broke even though It was on display and not during transformation. There are a lot of parts around the cockpit on the vf31 that are hinges. The frosted glass is too thick, can’t see the pilots. They’d be piloting blind. It feels really solid (but the vf1 dx feels even more solid). I might buy the vf31a if they ever rerelease it, since it has traditional wings or a recolor of it. This is a very cool addition to my collection of Macross. Also glad that I didn’t have to go preorder madness to buy it.

    Thanks. That sucks. He’d have to glue it on when he gets the part.

    I’m not sure what is wrong? I just got my first vf31, and it’s so cool. Thanks to whoever posted the link at release.
  9. In case of scalping, break glass. Max and 1s are opposite: Max is plain, 1S is covered in markings. Same. Already a yammie in all head molds, in 1/60 and 1/48 so it's hard to justify buying . I'd collect the 1S and 1j if at MSRP. The 1a is less popular and cheaper so I'll probably buy one when it's out. I'm not a fan of the Delta cartoon, and I hate preorder madness, so I didn't collect the previous dx V-31. Chuck was available at release at msrp, so I bought. It's sweet.

    I like the box with the cover and window on the first HM that looked like yammie boxes. Flip over the cover and the fighter is displayed withe missiles.
  11. Someone posted a while back that Max 1a was going down in price so scalpers probably having a hard time moving their preorders compared to 1j and 1s. It’s the same mold except for the head. The 1s and 1j are more popular so more expensive/scalping. If you are a fan of Max it’s probably more available and not as expensive.

    Right, I guess I was thinking of Nexx rather than Sylvie. Maybe Bandai doesn't know how popular the Tomahawk is. Why wouldn't they release that first? And if the line is going down like some rumors say, they should cash in on their mold since the Tomahawk has already been on display at some shows. I don't mind the purplish gray color, I can paint over it.

    @Saburo nice pic. Your photos are so clean. I haven't collected any of vf31 variants because I'm not into Delta, but this one with the radome looks pretty sweet.

    I think the destroids and the Silvie might have shelf warmed. But Bandai should have released the Tomahawk first, as it's probably the most popular destroid. Other companies usually release that first too, then the defender. Bandai would have had better sales. If they cancel the line based on issuing less than popular mecha, that sucks.

    Bandai better release that Tomahawk!
