  1. ... or you could just set the website to English. Just look for the little Globe icon: Some things won't ship to the US but I've found most things will ship if you purchase at release and it's sold (or fulfilled) by AJ.

    I had assumed the battered Valk came from AJ, but you're right... Reading the post again he did say regular Amazon so now it makes more sense. I've never had a problem with AJ.

    Oh man, that sucks! ... and I just posted in the other thread that I got my VT-1 today from Amazon JP in perfect condition in just 3 days after placing the order. I feel your pain.
  4. Yeah, I learned my lesson when MP-36 Megs was released. I had ordered from AE and used SAL to save on shipping (even then it was like $25 and took 3 weeks). But people were posting that they ordered from Amazon JP and got 2-3 day shipping for $10, so they ended up paying less than what I paid AND got their stuff in 2-3 days. Since then, I've been using Amazon JP for MP's and it's been great! Now I can add Macross to the list. I guess the risk is that you have to wait and hope Amazon gets whatever you're looking for because they don't always get it and you could miss out on a PO.
  5. New toy, from Amazon JP. Ordered Friday, shipped Saturday, received today (Tuesday). All for $85 shipped! Hard to beat that price with 3 day shipping from Japan to the US!

    Does anyone else think the HMR VT-1 looks very much like the original Yamato 1/60 VT-1 version 1 (w/ the removable legs)? The color scheme looks almost identical, and the molding of the boosters look more like that than the Yammy V2. It's as if they were going for that look instead of the Yammy V2 Ostrich. SMH...

    PSA: for those still looking for the HMR Ostrich, as of 8/10/18 noon PDT Amazon Japan currently has it for ¥7,808 (even though it lists it at¥8,433 -> add to cart and price drops). That comes to about $72.92. Shipping is another $11.20 (and Amazon shipping is fast! Gets to you in 1-4 days) -> Total price around $84.12USD. https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B07C9NDSZR/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=AN1VRQENFRJN5&psc=1 Edit: ...and gone.

    YOU'RE YELLOW! VF-25F turning all sorts of colors

    I personally haven't tried a 10% concentration of hydrogen peroxide. I've only used developer 40 hair gel, which is about 12% H2O2. I like the "gel" part because it's easy to apply and doesn't dry out as quickly. I'd assume the cleanser cream you're referring to would achieve the same results, but you're welcome to try and let us know how it goes.

    Rainbow canopy effect

    Just curious if anyone here has tried to add the rainbow effect on regular clear VF-1 canopies? I've seen sprays that supposedly add the effect to any surface and was gonna experiment but would appreciate feedback for those that were brave enough to try.
  11. Where did you end up getting the first release YF-21 from? I have two YF-21s, but both are the re-release version. Was thinking of selling one of them to get the 1st release but still debating if it's even worth it since I've read that the FP for the YF-21 isn't all that great.

    Agreed with Cat. If cheap enough, it'd be worth it if you wanna put some effort in whitening it. It's not hard or expensive, but requires patience. If done right, the results are very rewarding.
