    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    When we talk about aftermarket pricing, its hardly Bandai “screwing its customers” it’s Bandai only doing numbers and strategy for the Japanese market. They dont factor in the thousands of outside markets buying them up. If you got rid of the foriegn buyers, they would be plenty on store shelves in Japan. Bandai only does numbers based on its market, and no where else. So don’t blame Bandai for only selling in asia markets. I wont tell you who to blame for lack of them being made available to Bandai America, because you already know. On the wing gimmick, while I initially liked the gimmick in the old Yammies. This being so over engineered with new enhancements. It feels cheap. I mean at least they could have made it half length since the animation, only the inboard flaps were fowlers. Plus only have the amount of flap movement would make the piece more stable and less floppy plastic to break eventually. Here’s hoping they offer hard wings down the line with no flaps. If Bandai decides to make the DX be the new flagship of Macross I could see them building a 1/48 launch arm for display purposes. it’s a brilliant move if they make it correctly (not like Yamato). I have a hard time even fathoming a 1/48 SDF-1 Tower display that makes any kind of sense. It would the size of a compact car.

    This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    Exactly, especially with the MP KO transformers, can leave the nice one boxed and the KO ope for transforming. Although I've gotten my hands on KO TF's that are tighter and better quality than OEM. KO's really aren't the same as the old days. A lot of these companies are running out of the same manufacturing plants as the original makers. Especially when they make modifications that improve on the existing design.

    I know there’s a lot of dislike for KO’s but when there’s a lack of product and a high demand it’s bound to happen. I’d totally grab a Regult

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    HLJ removed it from the site, guess there’s no more stock coming lol
  6. From the old days of talking to MrK, most of Arcadia’s new projects are “because no one else would make them” reissues just help float the upfront R&D costs of the new molds. So all you guys buying the reissues are doing God’s work.

    That White and blue logo envelope is a Amazon shipped Amazon prime order. You would file a complaint with Amazon not the seller. Amazon has been delivering all of their exclusive TF’s the same way, in a bagged envelope the post office works shove in to small parcel lockers.

    This thing looks better and better, gotta say, I hope we get variants. Especially VF-1D, VE, Ostrich etc. I’ll buy em all. I love Yammy’s but there’s something sexy about the DX line.

    It's been awhile, and I've been lurking for a couple years now, but this I won't be missing this!
  13. Guys, you're missing the main point, Anakin Skywaker was essentially dead to Vader, he had no connection to that name until Obiwan Showed up on the Death Star. it had been year since turning fully darkside. That name was lost, that's why he wouldn't care about anyone named skywalker, or Tatoonie.
