  1. I checked mine and I got double left feet too. Pretty bad f—k up. Took it back to my shop and they will send it back to Arcadia. They won’t offer a refund so I hope they can get it to the right people. Arcadia need to own this and ensure their overseas customers get replacements since they are so niche, but I’m glad they’ve acknowledged the problem.
  2. Picked up my copy, but for some reason I can’t upload the pictures.

    It looks good on Chuck, and I have to say Ozma still is the king of armoured VFs. I think with the OTT weapons, the valk lost some its shape, unlike the 25S, which managed to retain a bit of that triangular look, making it more aggressive to me. This just seems to be a block of parts with an aircraft nose pointing out. That said, it’s still nice but not as fantastic as the 25.

    Finally put all the pieces together. Missing the tiny ones I mentioned earlier, but otherwise it’s done. Such a fat valk!

    Picked my copies up today. It’s a lot of parts and I’ll finish armouring up my valk when I get home later. There’s a few pieces that could easily get lost when opening the package so be aware. Those are pieces that tab onto the ends of the wing parts.

    @SuNDuK Yeah I agree that the glossy finish hurt the VF-25s. I also think the far better engineering they have now would be amazing on the 25 airframe. I wonder if they’ll revisit the design? I mean there’s not a whole lot to improve upon, but then again I suppose it’s the small things that add up to a great valk. The engineering on the 31 feels perfect. I also love how they figured out how to use fold out parts to prop up the valk in gerwalk so that would definitely remove the piece on the back of the 25. Either way if they do revisit the 25 that’s a rabbit hole I’m kiiiiinda not willing to go down.

    Grats on all the lovely VF-31E units! Saw a few in the wild today but my copy won’t be shipping until next month. Looks different and I’d dare say it might be the first radome design I like. The 25s looks better as a design than the 31, but Chuck’s is better than Luca’s overall. Maybe the turquoise green hurt the design, or perhaps it was the keroro head!

    Thanks man. Still kinda steep. Just seeing if it has gotten cheaper.

    Saw a DX Kairos locally for $550 brand new. How’s that compare to current prices?
  11. I am seeing the MB Astraea Proto GN not as popular as the Type F too. Usually there’s a local store that sells out within an hour or so of MBs and the Astraea sat around for a few days. Surprised as it’s my most wanted for many years. Ironically Bandai took so long after the Exia to release it even I’m a little underwhelmed after having it in hand. The wait does kill interest, especially when you know they had the mould six years ago. Still, it’s sweet to finally have.
  12. I heard that the official Hong Kong distributor got a lot of flak for releasing small quantities of the Metal Build Eva Unit 01 to jack up the market price. If even the official people don’t get into trouble for it, what can we do?
