    Bandai DX VF-31

    Just another note of help to those waiting: I was always cordial in my communication with NY and did not let them know about order numbers before me, etc. Also, it was quite random: I got my shipment notice today although my last communication with them was 3 weeks ago. It really seems that they're drawing numbers out of a hat or something!

    Bandai DX VF-31

    My VF-31A shipped through NY today! (Ordered 10/7 3am) And to think, I had just logged on today to request store credit I'd be even more excited if I hadn't already bought a pair at the scalper's markup since I was impatient. But another in the family never hurts.

    I'm still waiting for my order, after numerous pesterings. I ordered 10/7 03:05:09 #488952 and have sent multiple bugging tickets: still no movement. I'm also in the boat of "never using NY again" despite their low prices.

    Dang, I woke up with a vague feeling I forgot something and I load up MWF to find out I missed a PO madness night. Anyone mind sharing late-comer sources? (Other than loopaza... $300 before shipping is more than I want for 2 chunks of bracketry)

    I'm still confused- are those pics w. drakens just a "what if" of them glued onto the valk and the actual product going to have super bulky bracketry? Or are those brackets THAT invisible? Other than the color, I actually think the drakens on siegfried are starting to grow on me- I suppose worst case, if I PO, I can get a vf-31F with slightly less foggy canopy?

    Sooo just to be clear- it's brackety-goodness for the 31F and non-perfect transformation? If that's the case, I too will pass: though I hope this encourages some obsessive collectors to dump their original 31F's at bargain prices

    So.... when is PO madness for the extra-wholy VF-31F ?

    I just won me a vf-31A of YJP for a cool 37800 yen since I got tired of constantly refreshing my order status at NY. In other words, it looks like the price is starting to stabilize from the craziness of a month ago: have hope my friends! If NY actually does come through with my PO, I'll be more than happy to have a pair. Yeesh. Time to start selling off other bits of my collection or a kidney to make rent!

    Was it a mysterious no-account update shipping, or did they e-mail you in April? (I'm still waiting and hoping for my PO)

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Apologies if this has been mentioned before, as I don't seem to see it in the thread discussion, but do we know if this has the snazzy ratcheted joint upgrades? Also, if you're trying to offload a 19 advance, please DM me

    Hi there, I'm kind of a newbie in terms of PO madness (only ever did it for the 31J). Does this mean I should be up at 3am EDT on Saturday, technically? My memories from the last time I did PO madness are fuzzy

    Now I'm kind of sad I didn't take advantage of 10% off rakuten coupon... though the cost shipped to my door would probably still have been about $460 One silver lining: hopefully this sends a message to bandai that lo-viz schemes sell like crazy and maybe we can get some more military-looking valks. For now I'll just bust out the vf-25s, Vf-4G and VF-0A to satisfy my cravings for gray.

    I ordered 10/7 from NY, still waiting. I sent a polite and truthful concern email because I'll be moving in the summer and so would prefer to know when to expect shipment, but I just got a "soon" response. I'm kicking myself for not jumping on the other open vendors when I had the chance: this is probably my favorite valk design so far outside of the VF-0A. I'm getting more and more tempted to repaint the 31J kai I just got in lo-viz.... hmmm...

    Hi-Metal R

    Anyone know how old this image is? I just thought it was interesting to see that this prototype has the gun underneath whereas we haven't seen this recently.
