    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!

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

    Not too sure if I'm allowed to post this here, but in case anyone is looking there is one seller selling these on ebay. Price is a bit steep for a KO, at $170-ish for valk + FP : https://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Valkyrie-factory-1-60-Macross-ARCADIA-VF-1S-SSP-Backpack-full-set-Toy-Ko/163404209219?hash=item260ba65c43:g:CS0AAOSwPWtb~27h:rk:2:pf:0

    I was talking about the small fixed-posed fist hands that Hi-Metal VF-1 comes with, that can also be stowed. Of course they are swappable with other dramatic-pose, often bigger, hands (i.e open fist, gun holding, bigger fist), as mentioned in my comment that was quoted above . But by including at least a pair of stowable hands, I'd consider it a "pass" as far as perfect transformation goes..

    At those prices, it's better to get a used Yamato IMHO, esp with the upcoming release of DX chogokin, maybe (or maybe not) there will be a panic sell?

    I was thinking the same too, before I saw the stow away door for the hands. I'm guessing Bandai will include small fist-pose hands, like they did on Hi-Metal VF-1, and include bigger hands for dramatic poses.

    Thanks for the mini review. BTW, yours is £100 for just the valk, no strike part, right?

    Guess I'll have to give in & preorder these, since its the first quasi-perfect transformation Hi-Metal (minus landing gears). Hope their next attempts will involve valks with less-challenging mechanisms, i.e no heatshield etc., just to keep part swapping of major parts minimal

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I myself is on the fence on this, will probably wait out reviews & if all are A-OK's, will get one on the next release. But seems like the major upgrades are : - Articulations (1) waist joint to rotate upper body (new detachable swingbar mechanism to achieve it). (2) fingers joints (3) headlasers joints. - Cosmetics (1) integrated top "shoulder" covers (flips to close the holes on top/front of the chest). (2) lots of tampo prints. (3) head sits flusher in fighter mode. Anything else?

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I see. I was assuming at this point, with all the prototype videos & pictures posted by Bandai/scouts, Bandai must have shared a transformation video. I'll have to sit this one out until it's confirmed. Or wait for the 1S/other variants.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Has anyone confirmed/seen that the heatshield is integrated? It'd be a meh if its just a bigger version of the HMR with swappable canopy...

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    LoL yea. But seeing how the 1/72 kit disintegrated with too complex mechanism implemented on the hip bars, I have little faith in their partial perfect-transformation in the DX...the locking mechanism looks a bit flimsy to hold the presumably high amount of metal contents in the DX. But I'd assume Bandai view it as an optional gimmick, because TBH, you dont need to remove the metal bar if you don't want to rotate the upper torso.
