    Bandai DX VF-31

    I sent out a ticket yesterday and received the same response. No shipping notification yet but I ordered on 10/27. If sending a polite email moves me up the list though I'll take it.

    I'm definitely down for two sets. Not providing these (especially the weapons) was a major miss on Sentinels part. This may be too early of a question but if Sentinel releases Yellow or Fuke (and doesn't include these weapons/accessories again) would you do another run? Trying to think through if I would need to get more than two sets of this initial release to have the weapons variety I want.

    Yeah you're right. I saw the description and didn't even bother to look too closely at the picture. The picture is of the RG Sinanju though so I would think that the picture is wrong rather than the description. Wouldn't hurt to reach out to them to verify the listing VHD if you don't want to use a proxy. I've dealt with them a number of times and found them to be reliable. They were the first shop I used for P-Bandai Gundam items years ago before I found cheaper avenues like NY.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    You hush your mouth mister . No need to give Bandai ideas (although I'm sure they already had this idea without your help).

    Whats next for Arcadia?

    That might be a reasonable excuse for a 100% new figure. In this case though, other than the VF-0S (which I don't think they made any adjustments to for the PF), all of the PF they have released so far are 8+ year old items. How many more VF-1's do they need to re-re-re-release so that they can get enough customer feed back for proper "adjusting, refurbishing, etc"? Now admittedly, maybe there is something being lost in the translation. The only fixes I am aware of happened with M&M and those were made with the standard as well as PF releases. Maybe the adjustments they are referencing have nothing to do with defect corrections. What they may have been talking about is that after the general releases customers were asking for tampo printings so they are now accommodating that?

    This was the most interesting part to me and honestly I'm not quite sure how to take it. Sure it's great that they listen to customer feed back and tweak things for the PF release. On the other hand the standard release isn't exactly cheap and it kind of sucks knowing that I am the guinea pig for a future release.

    So I wasn't able to go online the last couple of days. Sign on today to a pleasant surprise that Nexx was still available at NY. I figured I was going to be stressed out finding it somewhere. I'm glad for the easy pickup but hopefully the slow sales don't mean we won't get a yellow, green, or acrobatic team colors (I'll gladly take TWE). Even worse, I hope that it doesn't mean Bandai won't invest anything further into Macross II.

    1/48+fp's, 1/60+fp's, 1/72, 1/2k, 1/3k,1/100 and now 1/144

    Kairos. Although the fact I am still waiting for NY to come through for me might be causing me to have a bias of desire. I think I'd still go with the Kairos if I had both in front of me. I really like the more standard military colors. As for your pictures they are both equally beautiful.

    Feff's Gigamesh without question. It's design would be perfect for HMR Don't forget the VF-XX Zentran Valkyrie And yes, DX's, DX's for them all!!!

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    The problem with that figure is that it is an SDCC exclusive. It can only be picked up at SDCC and must be picked up by the person that placed the order (ID verification) so you can't have a friend pick it up for you unless they also created an account at Sideshow and purchased it for you. On top of that there is a limit of 1 per person so you can't have one person buy a batch to pick up for a group of people. Now it is likely that Sideshow will have extras after SDCC that they will sell normally but no guarantees.

    Like most others I would have liked the next release to be something 'new' but Nexx is welcome news. While I figured it would be released at some point I didn't think it would be so soon. Maybe early next year. So no complaints here. I'll definitely be staying up late to pre-order this. I hope that the VF-2SS isn't all they eventually release from MII. I've already waited decades so I can wait longer but it would be a shame to not have any of the other designs from that show. Next up is hopefully something for SDFM like a destroid or regult scout.

    Received both my Stick and Ray from BBTS late last week. Got a chance to take them out this weekend and I am pretty pleased with them. My Stick actually seems to have better tolerances with things not popping off as much. I've only transformed Stick so far and for the most part it was pretty easy. Unfortunately the peg that is supposed to attach the bike to the back of the figure snapped off. I tried to place it back into its stored position so I wouldn't lose it but it didn't even want to go back in. I'm assuming there must be something in the way that caused it to break when I tried pulling it out that now won't allow it to go back in. Thankfully it's not a necessary part and it still holds together pretty well without it. I tried removing the paint from the inside of Ray's helmet with mixed results. I used rubbing alcohol which took quite a while but eventually removed all of the paint. Afterwards though it wasn't crystal clear in all places like I have seen in other peoples pictures. The middle of the face shield is still kind of cloudy as if the plastic had some marring. At first I thought it might be some residual paint that was being extra stubborn but none of my paint removers did anything to it. I'm hoping to use some plastic polish or Future to fix it. In the end I still really like them. They are nice and solid with just enough heft to them. They also scale well with a lot of other figures I have. I will definitely buy any other version of them that Sentinel offers.

    I got my pre-order arrival notice for both Stick and Ray today from BBTS. They were only 3 minutes apart with Ray coming first. So excited now that the long wait is over.
