  1. Yup. When I was moving couple month ago, I noticed the flightpost tips "melted" off some of the paint on my Isamu yf-29. On the metal part that connects the cockpit to the lower body. But all the plastic parts that connect with the tips are ok (it's on the stand for at least 2 years).
  2. It's from the prequel Blood & Chrome. They call it the Viper MK.III
  3. Ok, I haven't bulit gunpla for at least 8 years. Nowaday a RG is even more complex than the MG I last built (Freedom ver1.0). Guess the next couple weeks gonna be busy.
  4. I only used DHL twice, and both time they charged me almost 40% of the package fee with handling fee, clearance fee, etc. on top of the tax duty that goes to the government. And that ballooned the price of my item by almost 200% adding everything up. If a website only gives me DHL shipping, I'd just shop elsewhere.
  5. Goddamn. Missed the pre-order madness because I have to work. Had to pay extra to NY to get an order 18hrs late. Oh well.
  6. Pretty sure it's impossible. The official drawing doesn't even have consistency. There's just no way that small of a backpack has enough room to hide all those legs. Also the plane nose somehow shrinks in battroid mode compare to in fighter mode. The YF-21' design is just too hard to translate from 2D drawing to actual 3D model with consistency.
  7. I think matching to the lineart is just impossible giving that the lineart/battroid mode picture are too inconsistent in proportion from picture to picture. In that battroid mode picture, the nose cone somehow just "shrinks" compare to the size of the rest of the frame. Then with the side/rear profile, the main fuselage is impossibly thin to contain all those legs and arms and what not.

    The shoulder piece needs to be fitted onto the canard. Since 31A's canard is bigger than the Delta's, one way to make it fit is just using the 31S's canard with the armor and plug it into the A's canard slot.

    At least they still fulfill most of the order instead of cancel it then put it up for sell with 4x the msrp price.
  10. Yup. Brought 10 meters of window weather/dust proofing seal. The gap between the doors and the frame is pretty large.
  11. Not toy related, but I did switch from a Detolf to a larger cabinet so I can stuff more VF into it Have a couple more things waiting to be shipped out before the end of year.

    Yup. On the Chinese market, 31S's price starts steadily going up ever since the AP announcement. Now I've seen report of people can't even find a 31S seller as most of them started to hold off their stock for a huge price hike after the AP release date. Our valk now feels like bitcoin 2.0 or something.

    I can't imagine what 31A's price will skyrocket to if they release AP armor for it...

    This armor (with shipping) costs me $300 CP (Canadian peso). Just hope NY won't have another 31A incident.
  15. So finally decided to jump on the Yeti stand. Some quick questions thou. Which adapter should I use for the DX yf-19? A DX standing adapter with the bandai's fighter mode holder on it? And which adapter for the VF-31? Which component should I choose if I want both pitch and roll on my model? Say if I want to hold a yf-29 and a yf-19 in flight pose, will the Ikea DETOLF cabinet big enough for it?

    It think the armor just covers the whole canard.

    Seem like the mechanic to hold the booster on the wing will be just like the Fast pack, but with some obscure so that the wing has to fold down at an angle like the lil' draken pack.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Gotta admit, the lil' draken looks better on the 31S than the F.

    The last time I sent in a support ticket was September. Guess they gave up and just gave me my valk.

    Didn't get an email but when I checked my order history out of the blue... I almost give up on my 31A order. At least NY kept their promise and actually fulfill the order instead of cancel it even after all those time.

    You know bandai. If there's more money to be made, they will do it (means they will just keep re-release repainted packs). Beside, even the the OVA, the AP matches the VF's colour so you bet your ass they will not release a uniformed colour set.
