  1. Also I paid earlier today for the Super Parts on DEJapan, and I just got a confirmation email that they were ordered. So for the moment, looking good.
  2. Depends on the shipping method, never had an issue with them, aside from how they split up or combine items in shipments. One time they combined the 2 Yamato 1/48s, and shipping was reasonable, the next time they shipped them separate and it was an arm and a leg. But aside from that, very reliable and good customer service.
  3. Put the Tamashii URL in their search box, they've already reached their allotment.
  4. Max and Milia traditionally have custom super parts, IE red and blue, not the standard color worn by Hikaru and all the CFs.
  5. Those that missed out, don't panic, with each one of these VF-1 DX releases they have been available on release day for a modest markup, don't give into paranoia and the scalpers.
  6. Thanks man, even had time to sign in, (only site I didn't have up)
  7. Not up yet, but keep an eye on Okini Land, they came through for me on Max and Hikaru. https://okini.land/en/search?controller=search&in-stock=1&s=VF-1
  8. Got one Amazon, keep your eye on Okini Land, they've come through for me on the last two.
  9. And it can be yours, you can even pick it up in Cottonwood Heights.
  10. No problem, more comments move it up the list....
  11. Turns out the "screws" are metal pegs with anchoring grooves, they will come out if you slowly and gently pry them up with a small screw driver while turning the laser in a circle. So deconstructing a Yamato VF-1J head can be accomplished. When I'm finished I'll have to post pictures of my finished custom VF-1J Cavaliers.
  12. For Sale DYRL VF-1S Maximilian Jenius $200 plus actual shipping, add 4% if paying goods and services. I'm mentioned on the strait-shooters list, my ebay account levzloi has perfect feedback over 17 years. The toy itself is in very good condition and comes with all accessories stickers and manuals etc. However, I don't have any off white Yamato DYRL Valks to compare this too, so I'll simply say that it appears to be very slightly yellowed in a VERY consistent manner, IE not sunburned. The only place I really notice a difference is between the white painted metal above the air intakes, and the plastic chest piece (see pictures). -Shoulder's are intact, no cracks. -Appears to have been displayed, no tobacco odor. -Rainbow canopy exhibits some cracking of rainbow coating, see photo below. -Some yellowing is evident in the plastic seams (see overhead view leg seams). -Box is faded but in very good condition showing normal shelf wear.
  13. So I finally followed through on this, and I've included the results in the pictures below (instruction page courtesy of Anymoon.com). I was able to remove the front of the visor and the colored green plastic with just a razor blade and not much fuss. The rest required an overnight soak in GooGone. As you can see it also did a reasonable job softening up the paint for me and I was able to wipe most of it off. Using a razor blade and small screwdriver to attack the joints I was able to carefully pry off the head cap, and then it was easy to split the other pieces. Where I am now, is trying to get the screws/pegs off of the head lasers. Has anyone done this before or assembled the kit? They don't seem to be unscrewing when I use the pliers to twist them, are they just glued metal pegs? Would another GooGone bath do the trick?
  14. Clearly you’ve never taken a pt test.
  15. Mine just arrived, and I can second everything that's been said about the engineering..... WOW! Somebody really earned their money designing this. The good news is the TREAD "should" be much simpler, but I'm sure RIOBOT will figure out a way to over-engineer it. That said, I love it, for now I have him in Soldier mode sitting next to my DX VF-1A Max on my desk. Not a toy by any means, but probably the best transforming LEGIOSS with as few compromises as we're ever likely to get.
  16. I don't drink, so I'm not in danger of alcohol poisoning, but I also don't want my bladder to pop, soooooooooo....... no
  17. If I'm not able to secure this pre-order, I have a still in shipper box unopened MSIB VF-1S Hikaru that I've been saving for barter and I'll trade strait across for a Roy VF-1S. Just putting it out there.
  18. I believe they've already teased the red Legioss, so most likely that next with the green following, and then HOPEFULLY someday a TREAD.
  19. This is an expensive hobby, everybody knows that. I can understand saying to rich for my blood, but at the end of the day this appears to be a fantastically engineered model/toy that is scaled perfectly for the "hopefully" forthcoming TREAD. Anybody who hasn't seen the size of a 1/48 TREAD might be forgiven for saying it's to small, but after you've seen a Toynami Beta (which depending on the reference art is oversized), you understand completely why this LEGIOSS is so small.
  20. Amazon order says arriving July 3-6, hasn't shipped yet.
  21. Just get the two pack with the painted and unpainted one mentioned above, comes with a bolt rifle
  22. Disagree, I feel the articulation is very good on the Bandai, and the Mcfarlane ones seem to be more the in range of the traditional action figure, but we'll know for certain about six months from now.
  23. The price point may make this a no brainer, and they do look very nice, but I doubt they'll come close to the articulation of the Bandai. They're also likely to get a wider range of figures out faster, so I'll definitely be picking up a Dark Angel or Deathwing terminator.
  24. Like others have said, it is a little lacking on detail, it is essentially a brand new Primaris Space Marine in Armor right off the assembly line. No purity seals or battle damage, and just the knife and Bolter. That said I think the Articulation is awesome, you can get him into just about any pose you've seen on a miniature. If this is the only one produced, then I'm glad I got him, if they ever come out with a Dark Angel space marine, or better yet Deathwing Terminator, I think he's going to another home.
