    Horrible for a first attempt, but who knows, they might get it right next time.

    ^ ^ ^ Maybe next we will get the true and pure transformation of a VF-1 in... 1/35th scale? i think Bandai could have done this with their 1/48, but they did the complicated sway bar thing instead. I am sorry, i still haven't opened mine. So this is based on what i've been reading.

    i never understood the mini cons thing. I know i may need to watch the animation to understand it, but how does a car hanging off your arm would help you fight? I don't mean to sound negative or interrupt, but i may skip this line altogether.

    If you notice in my illustration or avatar, those three vertical "holes" on the chest, are apparently used as thrusters during the DYRL Max & miria's dogfight. Except, somehow they look circular on the film.

    Mine arrived yesterday, and I still haven’t gotten around to open it. Amiami seemed to only put massive amounts stuffing material, only on top and on the sides of the shipping box, lol. All in all, amiami did their job well on my first buy from them. Well done amiami.

    in my tracking it shows "item returned from import customs" I hope this is not a negative thing, with the gov closed and all.

    I have quite a few 1/48 yammies and arms were never a problem. What do you mean the arms sagged? Oh, do you mean in fighter mode? The arms wont sag as long as they are properly pegged between the legs.

    Bandai will release the telescopic chair for this ^ ^ ^ ^ for 40 dollars more.

    No amiami confirmation here either. This is my first order with them, but I am not worried.

    DX 1/48 = Yammie 1/48 V2. This is why they waited 15 years to do this

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Yes, thanks! The Vermilion squadron only got love in the Yammie V2 1/60 line. The "exclusive" mail order Yammie 1/48 versions helped me miss those releases. Sorry to say this, but even Robotech respects the Vermilion squadron more than Yamato and Bandai ever did. I will not buy the robotech versions for obvious reasons though. I hope their kitzconcept 1/72 line is amazing, since i know they will release the full squadron. My 1/55 line, incomplete. My 1/48, incomplete. My HM-R line, incomplete. My V1 1/60 Yammie, incomplete. I had to go and buy the V2 1/60 Yammie valks, to finally have the complete Vermilion squadron. Then, I never opened them, for fear of the evil fracturing shoulders. It drives me nuts. All i want is that and the 1D, and it is always a pain to complete it. Is it too much to ask for 4 a valk squadron and a 1D? I had to buy 5 lines of products, to only have one of them completed. Yes, i am frustrated to the core. If Bandai releases the Vermilion squadron first, I promise I'll visit Japan, and lick Mr & Mrs Bandai's feet.

    It still boggle my mind how the TV 1A Max and Kakizaki are mostly left behind. In my mind the TV series was immensely more popular than the movie. Maybe it is different in Japan? If it was up to me, TV Roy, Hikkie, MAx and kakizake would be the primal focus of the series.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Absolutely, I always panel line at least a Hikkie 1J, a 1S, and a CF. About getting multiples, my wallet had a serious talk with me, and it is not possible at this point.

    Even if i forgot to use our tools, which i did, lol. I think it is sort of a bad marketing move, when products are not easily available to all. Plus no 2 seaters either in the old Yammie 1/48 line. Instead of perfecting and finishing the 1/48 line, they jumped ship and went with the 1/60 V2. Not to beat on an old dead horse, but that was my greatest dissapointment back then. Let's hope Bandai finishes the 1/48 line properly. As they have almost done with the VF-1 HM-R series. BTW, is there a TV 1A Max, and TV 1A Kakizake in the HM-R line?

    Thanks Jenius, i knew there was a catch. I hope Bandai release these two. How hard can it be for a company to release the main TV mecha. Sometimes i hate exclusive/mail order editions, i swear.

    Did Yamato officially release the 1/48 TV MAx, & Kakizaki? Or was it like a web special. I doubt many MW memebers have these two. I would have them, that's for sure. BTW Amiami requested payment. I told them to shut up and take my money.
