  1. Overall, what has everyone's successful proxies been so far that you've gotten a confirmed order from? For reference, I was surprised to see that Buyee did not list Tamashii on their supported sites list. For reference, their supported sites list is linked below. Buyee Supported Sites: https://shop.buyee.jp/
  2. Ah, ok, that makes sense; thanks for the information. Oh, that is interesting, because it seems to mean that Takatoku was split acquired between Matsuhiro and Bandai. I'll need to give those articles a read, so I can better catch up on the history (lol, almost lore at this point considering the popularity of the VF-1* figures). This, especially this. Specifically, in regards to the Bandair DX Chogokin 1/48 Macross Super Dimensional Fortress (SDF) Releases (aka VF-1* releases) - why have the prices climbed as high as to rival some of the highest listed Macross SDF items on
  3. It was my understanding that Takatoku was the manufacturer of this figure. How did the Bandai logo get branded on the box and figure? For reference, I am aware that Takatoku was later acquired by Matsuhiro, but that still doesn't explain how the Bandai logo got branded on the box/figure. It is not normal, but it is current; I was charged ~$75 from Mandarake for shipping to mid-east coast USA at the beginning of December for a VF item.
  4. Is there a particular reason for why the Movie Super Parts don't come with the color tipped missiles, but the TV Super Parts do? For reference, TV Super Parts product page linked below. Bandai DX Chogokin TV Super Parts Set First Release (December 2020): https://tamashii.jp/item/13358/ Bandai DX Chogokin TV Super Parts Set Second Release (April 2021): https://tamashii.jp/item/13497/
  5. Does the Bandai DX Chogokin Movie Super Parts Set come with a backpack missile pod? For reference, I checked their official product page, and they didn't have a picture of it. Specifically, the "backpack missile pod" being referred to: is that the portion of the front of the super pack thruster where when removed reveals missiles ready to be launched? I've seen a picture of something like that a long while back, but couldn't remember the exact manufacturer/scale release. Also, does the Bandai DX Chogokin Movie Super Parts Set come with the six thick white missiles with colored tips that
  6. Overall, if you had to get only set of Super Parts for your VF-1*. which would be recommended: DYRL or TV? *Note: Asterisk (*) represents all the various VF-1 releases.
  7. I imagine the first two from the left are: 1/48 Bandai DX Chogokin TV VF-1S Roy Rocker and 1/60 Arcadia VF-1S; what is the third one?
  8. So, then on preorder (PO) night in order to join the other users here on seeing if they (us) can secure a preorder of a Valkyrie (or multiple) - does that mean I would need a Japanese (unqiue) address and a Japanese phone in order to join the other users here on securing preorders?
  9. Given the above, does that mean, say for the VF-1D preorder, that even if you make it successfully to the checkout screen and enter your pay credentials will that vendor (Tamashii in this example) not ship to an address outside Japan?
  10. Thanks for the link; yours seems to capture all the 1/48 Macross DX Chogokin releases. I filtered a bit, and I think the below link has all the 1/48 Macroos DX Chogokin - Super Dimensional Fortess Releases strangely with the exception of the VF-1D (orange valkyrie) being released soon (12/24). Is the reason the VF-1D is not listed because another online store has the exclusive sale for it? Link: https://tamashii.jp/item_brand/dx_chogokin/1/?number=40&order=new&character=macross&ck1=1&ck2=1&ck3=1&ok=Narrow+down+by+this+condition Thanks. Ok, good to
  11. Is there a calendar graphic/image of the 1/48 Bandai DX Chogokin VF-1* releases (both past and future)? Specifically, I would like to know how many of the future releases they've already announced.
  12. In terms of paint scheme for the 1/48 DX Chogokin: TV version of the VF-1S Roy versus the Movie version of the VF-!S Roy - is there an official paint scheme listed somewhere that Bandai follows? In other words, is there some official reference image/design material that Bandai follows for choosing the paint scheme of the 1/48 DX Chogokin: TV version VF-!S Roy versus the Movie version of VF-1S Roy?
  13. Yea, available at 30k Yen+3k Yen shipping NOT the earlier 27.2k Yen+3k Yen shipping; I followed up about 15 minutes after his original post, and it (@27.2k Yen+3k Yen shipping) was gone already. :/
  14. Gone already, :/ >_>
