    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    The undercarriage looks a lot better in fighter mode.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Not anymore, they don't.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    That's more than a new one from NY. I'm tempted, but I'm not sure I'd be convinced that the armor pack will go any better with the S than it will my VF-31F. There's no Orange on Arad's paint scheme.

    Jealous of those correctly colored M&M supers.

    Chrome's being a bit iffy translating that review - there's nothing about armor-specific mounts, right? I'm kind of hoping I'll be able to mount the armor to my Messer.

    Really hope they release more photos before the preorder date. Also curious if this will be the only one or I should wait for the color schemes I actually like.

    Arcadia SDF-1 Movie version 1/3000 reissue

    Who would pay that for it when it's only 68,000 at NY? https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/22049-1-3000-kanzen-henkei-sdf-1-macross-premium-finish-limited-edition.html
  11. Kind of surprised this one didn't hold more value. But, then, the reason for my disappointment is that it's my least favorite item, and I'm considering selling it - if everyone feels the same, then I guess it makes sense.

    Ha - I watched the PF review the whole way through looking for something like that. Should have realized it would have been in an earlier video. Thanks.

    Arcadia SDF-1 Movie version 1/3000 reissue

    Okay, as it turns out, the buttons do still work - it's just really hard to get one cannon angled all the way to the point where it will engage again. The other one more naturally straightens out for some reason. Got the ARMDs on. After the number of times I tried to get 01 on, I thought I might have been sanding a bit off just from the attempts - but then I got 02 on much more quickly. It really is about angling it as much as possible. Finally, I think I managed to rub off some of the phosphorescent paint on the middle section that swings around as I was trying to feel my way the transformation. It's not a very visible part of the toy in either mode - a column of three green lights on either side. Moral of the story, watch Jenius's transformation videos! Don't try to feel your way through it - you'll rub that wonderful finish, and scare yourself into thinking you broke it! Cruiser to Attack Mode Attack Mode to Cruiser

    I no longer have to press the button to release the canon arms to fold down. I do still need to press it in order to fold them up. Should I be worried? Also, how does one attach the ARMDs without the use of a hydraulic press?
