  1. Bandai DX VF-31

    Some translation: -Base colour comes straight from unpainted plastic. which results in glossier feel (or more toy like) than the other 31. -Still uses the same battery charger like the delta squad, despite not carry the funnel shield, no missiles means disappointment. -He didn't notice the canard is bigger than the special 31 thou. -Chest Fold carbon is obvious different than the delta's 31. -Should you buy it? If you really like the 31A's design, but don't have the skill to build hasegawa, buy this one right now. The price is already going up in Japan (due to tamashii never does re-print). But if you have the patient, you might want to wait because obviously bandai wants more money, and there's a good chance they will do another release with Arad's insignia sometime in the future.

    Huh, so the order I placed at HLJ did show up 10mins later. Cancelled CDJ's order.
  5. Bandai DX VF-31

    Welp, first ordered 1 on HLJ. Although it says order confirmed, I see no order in process under my account, and no email confirmation either. Placed another one on CDjapan. Got the email and my heart rate drops

    Is it me or Nippon-Yasan is having problem with their site?

    Bored, made this in a hurry: What it feels like for the macross junkies like us.

    2AM, or 8hrs and 30mins from now.

    Right now it says "Reservation closed". Does that mean the pre-order is already finished or it's just their way of put it as inactive?

    As well as NY, with a ridiculous mark up.

    Kinda doubt they are gonna release the AP for J, C and F. The basic rule is that if it didn't appear on screen (whether it's tv ver. or movie ver.), the chance it will get release is slim to none. The F might get a lil dragon set and that's it. So each one has their own "special setup" in some way (except Mirage's, she gets nothing). edit: btw, do you guys think there will be enough S for the pre-order window to open for at least a day or two? I don't think I can make it to the 2AM EST release time and might only be able to get an order at 12 hours later.
  12. taobao.com?

    Buying directly on taobao is a classic case of "your mileage may vary". Some seller has good reputation and ships on time. Some others prefer to sell to whoever can pay the higher price first instead of shipping it to the pre-ordered people first to maximize profit. There were couple threads expose those sellers on Chinese macross forum. So if you can't understand Chinese, I strongly not recommend buying from there.

    Standard rule is that if it's not shown in either the movie or TV show, it won't get released. So the J, C, F won't get the AP. F might get the lil dragon pack thou.

    Is it me or the insignia is just bit smaller than in the show? And it's way too far back? Can't Bandai get one single insignia right with the 31 line?
