    The Third Party Gundam Thread

    Cant also understand it but based on the video, it looks well articulated for the size (dont expect articulation of RX-78-2). It has decent detail and the finish looks good. It is a fairly solid figure (hope it stay that way for all). The Binder is what I am really interested, it turns out the articulated arm holding has locks so that it will not sag.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Looks like you are not affected. Since this is a replacement of my delayed yf-19 from NY (which I will sell once I got it), I jumped and paid extra for DHL. It was ordered 3 days back from Nagoya. I am mostly satisfied with the way Mandarake ship their items but I really hope that there is no broken antenna. This is a notice from j-subculture, one of the proxy sites I tried to use before (but I stucked with FJ)

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    nice deal there but I just want to warn you that currently, Japan post is delaying SAL shipment since the recent typhoon has affected some of their operations. Right now, my order from NY has been shipped last 9/21 and have not yet made any progress. Currently, they are prioritizing EMS, then Airmail before shipping the SAL. They are advising 4 to 10 weeks delay. While waiting, I also hunted a YF-19 at mandarake, and got one for 27,000. I should be receiving it later tonight.

    I may be wrong, but they have been printing that one with at least 3 colors now. They are just trying to maximise it while there is a demand.

    DX VF-25 Renewal Series (Part III)

    When I got into this hobby a few years back, it was sitting at 18,000 yen for MISB. Then the ozma got reissued (at the time of announcement, all Armor pack in Mandarake got sold out lol), Alto got reissued a lot, then the normal price became 32,000 yen. From time to time, Mandarake will have those from 22,000 yen to 28,000 yen for opened version. Currently, Ozma has a higher price than Alto's Armor pack.

    YF-29B Custom Reference/ Referral

    I got your point. I checked the twitter, he does indeed make personal customs. The picture is small but are you referring to aircraft markings? If yes, you can actually use hasegawa 1/72 Water Slide decals for Frontier (or same timeline VF). But seeing that he build multiple mecha show materials, those are probably left-overs from other kits.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    while my shipment is stucked somewhere in Japan, I kept on observing Mandarake if these will be sold. Unfortunately, I havent seen any listing since the release date. edit: I was wrong, I am just using the wrong keyword https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1096833204&ref=list

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    What I love about the Yamato 1/60 are the play-ability. I can comfortably transform them anytime without thinking of getting loose overtime. This is quite different with the diecast materials used by Bandai in their joints. But still, I am seeing a great product from Bandai.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    While I saw how fiddly it was, but I also saw that the fins are really flat when folded.
