    Whats next for Arcadia?

    Personally I think those launch stands are horrible. I have one but can't really use it because it's not stable, further exacerbated by Yamato/Arcadia sometimes placing the connection mount in areas very far away from the valk's center of gravity.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Yes. And as mentioned before, the lil drakens that go with Keith match even better with the S.

    Indeed. But I think the ones that came before look really nice with Arad's 31

    VF-31E preorder cancellations aside, I got my Drakens from NY earlier today but didn't get a chance to open them before leaving for work. But now I'm home and had the chance to put them on. They're okay. Nothing surprising.

    Got it at AmiAmi. It actually went a lot smoother this time around compared to the recent preorder madness with them.

    Bandai VF-19 Advance....!!!

    Hey the pic looks perfect now. So my earlier comment no longer makes sense lol. Great shots as always.

    Don't want to come off as nitpicky, but I think you forgot to bend the legs in fighter mode for when the fast packs are on. Then you need to clip the shoulder parts into the back of the calves. Other than that, looks great!

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    No pics to share but I recently got the WeiJiang M05 Hide Shadow (aka Blackout). Had the original Hasbro Studio Series version at first but sold it in anticipation of this one. I must say that this one is a really awesome piece. The increased size and improvements they made over the original make it one of the best Transformers I've handled. Also received SoC FA Daimos. It's a nice piece and I'm glad I finally have a Daimos toy after wanting one for over 30 years, but I am just not feeling it right now. I just gave it a once over and stored it back in the box.

    Something must've been wrong with your Strike Cannon. It's supposed to be able to fold down 90 degrees without any mods.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    That's one of the small pieces that flip out near the chest guns.

    So I just heard that Chuck's VF-31E will be a Tamashii Exclusive release. Anyone else heard this?

    I wonder if I'm just really lucky with my 2 copies, or if there's something being missed by those with the arm tabbing issue in fighter mode. Both of mine tab in very securely with no signs of it trying to dislodge itself. They don't need the gunpod or legs to help keep them in place, and they're both aligned with each other and no need for offsetting. I would like to help but not sure how since most peolple with the issue are experienced owners, some waaay more than I am. Hard for me to imagine that they're doing something wrong. But anyway, in my case what I do before transforming the valk from battroid to fighter is to make sure the arms are rotated down all the way at the shoulder hinge as far as it can go. It's a tight joint so best to grab it at the base of the shoulder or upper arm when rotating down rather than using any part below the elbow or else it might not be fully rotated. If not done all the way, I can imagine that may cause it to want to flex outwards (or downwards in fighter mode), coming undone at the tabs. Again not sure if that will help anyone with the issue but thought I'd give it a shot.

    I only have 2 but both of their gunstraps are fine. That's really really unlucky to get them on all 3 of yours.

    The chest locks solid. You may have missed a step. Try pushing down on it more until you hear it snap into place.

    Have you tried opening a ticket to say that you already paid the additional? That works for me.
