  1. Had to...amazon jp price was too tempting to resist
  2. Touchdown! Took 3 days from Japan to the States via DHL (Amazon jp)...and both boxes are intact! *finger crossing* that the rattling sound from inside the boxes are just the option parts moving around, as others had mentioned in the other thread...
  3. Just got mine today too & was surprised with the rattling sound coming from inside of both boxes. Won't have time to check till weekend, but I'm assuming those are just the option-parts moving around .... riiight?
  4. Thanks for the replies! April should be good to go. Haven't preordered anything in ages, but been waiting for either 1/60 v2 VE/VT/VF-1D.
  5. Those who ordered from Amazon.jp, may I know approx when they'll request payment? I ordered two, back when pre-order opened. I know the figure will be released in April, but just want to know when they'll request payment so I can plan ahead. Thanks!
  6. Btw, experten also made a chibi transformable YF-19 kit few years back
  7. Because...why not?! Theyre fun to transform (perfect transformation), lots of details &...fun fun fun. At one point I had like 8-9 of them lying arounfd but now I'm only keeping two (1S Roy & 1A Hikaru). Made a CF/destroid custom myself back then, but sold it on ebay...someone here bought it? I know a few who hoards them like crazy back in the days ... Bobepatt still here? He's a total JM junkie...
  8. Just to put it out there, in case it wasnt clear. To OP, the kit you're building is not perfect transformation. Note the battroid-mode nose cone has the hip joints while fighter-mode doesnt. Basically there are two swappable front fuselate sections, one for fighter/gerwalk, another for battroid. And yeah, Bandai's latest 1/72 VF-1 kit is a mess...but fun to build. Wish they can revisit them, but given that other recent Bandai toy-valks are overly complicated to transform, I dont they have the know-how to simplify the transformation.
  9. If they ever release 2 seater variants KO's (1D, VT, VE), I'll buy them in a heartbeat. But I guess they'll focus on milking the mold for now..oh well, I can wait.

  11. Thanks for the mini review. As suspected from some video transformations I watched, seems like the legs are deliberately designed to not hold together well & are pretty loose. Personally I will be bothered. Over the years of collecting Macross, I realized playability played a big role in determining whether I keep the toys or sell them. The ones that survived my now small collection are the v2 VF-1's, v2 YF-19 & Yamato's SDF-1. Well, I wouldnt say SDF is playable, but honestly I haven't transformed that big guy because I prefer ship mode. Will read more reviews like yours and decide if I'll jump on Bandai's next VF-1 releases. Thanks!
  12. Great to see another iteration of the VF-1. But from comparison pictures so far, IMHO I do still think the yammy/archie are still the best, aesthetic/proportion/playability wise. Bandai looks just a little bit bulky and disproportionate compared to the yammy/archie. Maybe down the line I'll get one of them Bandai badboys for the sake of it, just like most other Bandai valks that I got, but eventually sold due to their lack of playability. Oh well.
  13. I'd totally jump in if they release the 1D/VE/VT. But I guess now they'll just ramp up production on the VF-1 mold. Well I can wait.

    Hi-Metal R

    Noob question : Do I need to create a new Amazon.jp account if I want to purchase from them? I have an Amazon.com account (duh), but can't seem to login on their jp site. Thanks for the clarification!
