  1. So my sleep was well interrupted the past few nights trying to score a Roy or two. Man, this dx collecting is indeed exhausting and addictive. I’ve never browsed internet so damn hard like this, not even for something that is much higher in value and rarity.. Dude where is my Roy(s)!
  2. Thanks, @F360 and @Ryoma
  3. I got a Roy via proxy shopping with From Japan. First time user, are they reliable? I paid for it and I suppose the next step is for them to purchase it from the seller, etc etc. How long does it usually take until your item arrives at their "warehouse"? Thanks!
  4. Heads up for those who still in the market for one of these; DX Chogokin YF-29 Durandal Valkyrie (Alto Saotome Use) Full Set Pack by Bandai (hlj.com) at 23k decent price better than Amazon jp, and we know HLJ is dependable.
  5. No problem borgified. I ended up picking up my 4th set in hopes to complete DYRL Skull Squadron someday and what a sense of achievement and void in my bank account. Sayonara SSP set don't ever wanna look it up again.
  6. DX SSP on Mandarake; https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1128767132&ref=list&keyword=dx chogokin vf-1&lang=en 15k yen for unopened. good deal in current market. hurry.
  7. Saw a SSP set on Mandarake this morning for 15k yen, sealed. I passed because I am currently all in for Mr. Focker..looking to get two sets at least. How many are you getting and how many is enough? I have a feelin' some would go for three because it is a magic number.
  8. Got my ass whooped good for buying three DXs'...over relatively a "short period of time" according to wife. ..Damn you joint account.
  9. Being a sore loser on the Roy preorder night, I initially got one from Luna Park for 38500 shipped..talking about scalping price. After calming down a bit, I couldn't justify paying that much and since Amazon Japan's offerings have come down significantly, I decided to get one with proxy purchase via Tenso. Luna order cancelled. I have a feeling the price will go down even further towards the release date closer to MSRP and keep my eye balls peeled for a second.
  10. I am also into restoring and refinishing unsatisfactory mass-produced factory paint jobs myself, and just want to share my utterly unpleasant finding that what appears to be unpainted surface on Bandai DX VF-1, the main body in particular, is in fact finished with clear sealing coat.. The red marker on the wing tip on my copy was scuffed from factory,(thanks Bandai) so I decided to remove and repaint all together. In the process some red paint smudged onto the surrounding area. No big deal, simply clean with some Mr. Hobby thinner right? because it isn’t painted..wait, what the @#$&.
  11. I forced myself to watch the movie Macross Frontier goodbye wings of something in short clips only because of this release. It's cool but I am not jumping the gun to get it. Oh the peer pressure...Am I missing out?
  12. Out of all the good things I am absorbing from MWF, I learned by heart not to shop at NY. What a joke they seem to be.
  13. So...has anyone attempted to crack open a SSP missile pod yet
  14. Retractable wings to be designed and incorporated for upcoming DX's Bandai . Ab-crunching Valkyries would be awesome. They can build in a pullout metal joint where the nose cone meets the cockpit at the rotation point!
  15. As far as the final attack pose, I find this to be really good and dynamic considering the articulation limitations of the toy.
  16. Slave IV I didn’t mean to worry you, just that in my reading there has been instances where a bad batch of rubber chemically unstable was used for the bumpers that resulted in the unwanted reaction. Regardless, I can not afford to risk it, don’t want any surprises thus my inquiry. I did think of using some tape over it if I was to buy the Flightpose stand..
  17. The flightpose stand seems to offer a great displaying option, but I’m a bit hesitant to purchase because I read somewhere on the forum that those rubber heads will react & eat into paint and bare plastic surface over time. Granted DX Valks aren’t painted at least where the support points will be in fighter mode, but with all the bells and whistles equipped I assume it could be quite hefty exerting quite a bit of pressure against those rubber bumpers. I have seen what weight, heat, combined with time does to the mating surface between plastic and some rubber- it gets all sticky and gummy.
  18. I would like to Ctrl C your Skull squadron shelf and Ctrl V into my dinky detolf...Amazing collection sqidd
  19. Now they just need to make one for 1/48 Bandai DX Valks!
  20. Very nice so colourful! I wonder when Bandai will release DYRL Roy, the SSP packaging & contents ensures its future arrival.. I have a strong feeling the next DX will be TWE Max
  21. Haha I'll take one as well please, that J in the background looks awfully good to me. I tried to line it up push it up some more but it never seems to sit flush, which really ruined the beauty of the fighter mode for me
  22. I picked it up, and the shipping they quoted is 1,935 yen to Ontario, Canada via Air SP registered. This my 3rd set from Manda and the other two branches charged exactly the same. Not sure how Complex branch is known to charge more..
  23. Thought I’d prefer Hikaru 1S the hero Valk, but boy was I wrong! I also REALLY like the 1A head and the green scheme of Kakizaki now that I have one in hand..very sharp and simply amazing. I would have preferred Kakizaki green over Max blue anyway as it appeals to me more aesthetically..only if it wasn’t for the dying pilot. Can’t wait for DYRL Max 1A now. I strongly recommend you pick one up
  24. This may have been done a thousand times already by the members here, but for me it was like a slap in the face and thought it was brilliant enough to share. I was looking at tekering’s awesome photos of the Kakizaki vf-1a w/ SP above, and noticed that he was able to put the bird up with the Bandai’s DX display stand arm mounted vertically, which is only meant for battroid mode according to manual. I have a detolf and without access to some Yeti stand found it challenging to fit two VF-1’s with SSP equipped. I prefer them airborne. I believe this small mod may provide a displaying solution to
