  1. Bandai Sv-262 DX valk

    Can someone help me? When transforming back into fighter mode, it seems that I can't get the legs to peg together all the way, leaving a gap in the feet/thrusters... is there something I'm doing wrong?

    Did you guys know that you can extend the ankle joint for added articulation? I'm not sure if they mention it in the instructions. Thus far, the only thing I had issues with is the scratching of the (non-painted) wingroot when trying to position the wing during the transformation.

    Has anyone seen/posted about this before?

    Some trepidation regarding several points after owning it for a couple of days: - Is it just me or is it really hard to get the cockpit section to stay pushed against the rest of the fuselage? There always seems to be a split. No matter how I try to collapse the two blue metal bars in, they come back out. - I really hate the fact that the arms scrape the sharp points on the back panel whenever they are rotated out or in unless you're exceedingly careful. The paint on the points on mine is already gone after 2 transformations. - Lastly, I've very afraid that the hinge supporting the container will eventually become loose.

    I might try the paint approach, because I don't think I have the strength to part with one after going through so much anxiety to get one. (^.^;) Out of curiosity, when does the rear container get deployed? It seems that most of the time, the container is left hanging off the backs of the Battroid mode.

    OMG. I just received mine and it's absolutely gorgeous. One thing that I'd like to talk about is how amazing the box design is. Undoubtedly one of the nicest DX Chogokin boxes yet. A hard cardboard box with a flip top lit, an insert and a box for the accessories. They sure know how to impress. Regarding the Valk itself, it's lovely, tight and transforms beautifully. I freaked out when I realized that the legs were ratcheted and there was a forwards and back waist joint in addition to a side to side one. Goodness, it took them this long to put in ratchet joints into the legs... However, I have to be the bearer of bad news as mine has a rather "unique" QC issue... One of the flaps of the Fold Wave System is unpainted. Seriously? I'm not going to get any luck with amiami, so I'm not going to even bother trying. Dear lord... I just want ONE YF-30... But they're so horrendously expensive. Regarding the foot, is it extended all the way? I actually had to pull quite hard before I heard an audible click. Once it was locked in place, they remain rock solid and take quite a bit of force to push back in.

    Darn it! I'm always late to the party... (T.T) Just realized it came back up after seeing it at the top of the popular items list... Please reopen again! (^.^

    Are you kidding me? (>.<) I missed it again! Saw the sweet orange button, but when I clicked it, it was gone.

    Okay... I am deeply regretting not getting this when it came out. Is it worth paying upwards of 40,000 yen to get it now? (-.-)
  10. Bandai DX VF-31

    Yup. As expected, I completely missed out on the pre-orders thanks to the driving test. On the bright side, I passed my driving test.
  11. Bandai DX VF-31

    Oh my goodness. The preordres open right when I'll be having my driving test. (T.T)
  12. So basically, "Evo Toy's VF-2ss Valkyrie II arrived and what can I say... As expected, it feels cheap and the transformation and articulation is no good. Because of the shoddy materials and construction, it creaks when you move it and parts fall out of place easily. This is a product that will induce MAX stress just by touching it." Wow... kinda harsh.
  13. Okay, let's flip that around then. Do you feel that it's strange for grown women who like watching movies like Transformers (that are targeted towards teen boys)? Also, I actually watched the episode raw as I'm not a fan of gg in the slightest... I didn't want to ruin the experience with their notorious trolling. "Japanese doughnuts"? Yeah... Same old, same old.
  14. I have absolute confidence that they will only appear once in such a flashy manner (or at least have completely different outfits/animation each time). Every episode would also be unlikely as they would only "transform" for the battles. Modern magical girl shows that are not a villain-of-the-week series are pretty particular about only showing an extended transformation sequence once throughout the entire run. This is especially true for shorter anime that have a higher budget as the stock transformation scenes are usually used as filler. Also saw this interesting comment by WhatShtIsThis on another forum:
