  1. Bandai DX VF-31

    Droooooool. Love the clear orange canopy, among many other things. Hope the production release has that too.
  2. Yamato 1/60 VF-19S/F/P - All Variants

    I have a VF-19S that has been transformed several times without incident. With my 19K I have only transformed it twice and have the broken shoulder along with a broken elbow. I'm sure it's just bad luck but still makes me go :/ every time I look at it.

    Wholeheartedly. The end of the month can't get here fast enough.

    I don't see how it could be any worse. I like the ET VF-2SS for what it is but it would be a MASSIVE fail on Bandai's part if they weren't able to improve on it.

    Mine also broke in almost the exact same place. The only difference was that it was the part in the shoulder where you have the pin inserted in your pic. I know the pain of trying to take that shoulder apart and put it back together. I was never able to get it fixed as any fix I would do (Plasti-Weld, pla plate reinforcement, etc...) would keep breaking. It's in perma-fighter mode now.

    I also got the preparation in progress email from NY on 10/19 and it shipped out with EMS early this morning. NY really needs to hire more warehouse staff, or at the very least prioritize shipping EMS over SAL. When people pay extra for EMS shipping they shouldn't have to wait a week for it to go out the door.
  7. Arcadia 1/60 Super VF-1J Max & Millia Release

    Opened up the packet with the instructions and stickers. Looks like the serial number is on a piece of paper in there. Or at least I'm assuming that's what it is since I cant read anything else on it. They also included a strip of extra screw cover stickers cuz you know they're awesome and stuff

    There aren't any plugs in the arms, they just covered the screws with stickers. The screws aren't deep enough in the arms to be covered with plugs.

    I'm sure they were trying to recreate the red to match the surrounding area they were being inserted to. The part of the legs where they are being inserted is also white plastic painted red. Unfortunately they don't match exactly, most likely because the paint on the plug is too thin so it makes it a lighter shade of red than the surrounding area. The plugs in the upper thighs are unpainted red plastic so match perfectly with the surrounding unpainted red plastic. I didn't even realize they were there on first inspection. The stickers though...

    Looked all over but did not see a serial number.

    Got my Milia this past weekend. It was nice to have the tampo triangles back on the sides of the cockpit as well as the numbers on the tail and leg fins. I was surprised with how dark the red is. Not sure if that is consistent with the V2 though. Can't say I'm a fan of the screw covers. In the legs they appear to be painted plastic plugs. It's a close color match but not perfect. The arms though seem to just be a sticker placed over the screw. The color doesn't match as well for those. If they were going to use a sticker I would have preferred that they give them to us on a sheet for us to decide to apply them or not. In the end I'm pretty jazzed to have this in my collection. Next up Max!

    NY shipped mine late last night. Hopefully yours will go out soon. It really is a game with them though. They shipped out my Messer VF-1S 2 weeks after my prep in progress email even though I pre-ordered on the first day and they were shipping out other peoples orders right away.
  13. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Who made them? Are they ones Hasbro made during Iron Man 2? Some of them look like ones I have from that line but if that's the case I didn't realize they made that many. In either case I would really like to get a Tony figure to add to my lineup so any info you could provide on that one would be appreciated.

    Also remember that part of the point of making it an event exclusive is to get people to come to the event. The more people at the event the more they can try to sell people on their other products. It's a captive audience for advertising that they otherwise may not have had access to. They may figure that it is better to lose a few VF-31J Kai sales to increase their overall sales across all of their product lines.

    May be easier for them but not for us consumers. The end of 2017 and beginning of 2018 is hitting the pocket book harder than in any past years. That's not even taking into account Xmas expenses. No way I am missing this but I really need a financial reprieve next year.
