  1. MΔ - VF-9

    Geez, I want this terribly. If all goes well, it'll be an easy purchase when the new 2.0 version is examined.

    None of this sounds good. Doesn't Paypal have a rule against businesses preordering so far in advance? Basically, by the time the thing was released, it was already against the wire.
  3. Bandai DX VF-31

    Lately, almost every DX (yes, with some exceptions) have eventually gone up. Most Arcadia releases go up, except in case of a re-release. I remember selling an Alto YF-29 with armor for over $500, then literally without any notice, a second release was announced right after. Then I think there was a smaller 3rd, but I can't remember. your best bet is to always get in early if possible, which seems to be harder these days. Macross has made a bit of an increase in popularity for all series with every new series. Truly, a rising tide floats all boats. In regards to the news of a possible new stock of these coming in, I certainly hope so. I thought of backing out because I can use the money, but having one and being able to resell it later isn't a bad 2nd option if I get to that.

    All very valid points to take into consideration. Even if this was the main hero valk, these things pop up well after they're gone, and at that point, just becomes a matter of simple searching. If that becomes a majority of all of our tasks for this thing, I'll gladly wait it out. There's way too many other things in the list of wants that I would like first.
  5. From what I'm gathering, no, it isn't common. The movie got extended due to theaters selling out, and for an anime in theaters, that's pretty big news. I believe there was even a 4D type of viewing at a cinema just recently, and that sold out. While the release of the BD is now confirmed for August, it's also noteworthy to include the fact that the Walkure 3rd Live will be released on BD roughly around the same time (well, autumn). The fact that the concert was performed the 3rd week of the movie release is significant, as a big part of the Macross franchise is the music. Having both coincide during the same time, along with the event at the Skytree, and several independent fan events will help push one another.
  6. It seems in general, that most of us here are just older, and expect these to be shows about war and battle, which has never been the focus of Macross. Delta really isn't anything new or different than what has been shown before, and if you point a number of things out in the series, there's most likely a direct reference to it in a previous show. It feels different than previous ones, that's for certain, but it's successful no doubt. At this point, there's no point in being upset at it. There's a target audience, and you're not in it. Many of us aren't supposed to be in it, but trying to make it seem like this is something way out of left field and totally foreign to what the franchise has always been is not really true. Besides, I believe they did try to appeal to their older fan base with Zero, and that didn't turn out so well. That said, I'm totally OK with that. I don't like everything about Delta either, but I pick and choose what I like. Hell, there is stuff about every series they've done that I didn't like. SDF Macross wasn't my golden ship to sail on, but there was stuff I liked that kept me from jumping onto other things. I can make the same comparisons with Delta. In any case, I don't see a point in getting so seriously upset over it. If it isn't for you, it isn't. There's hundreds of thousands it is for, and by seeing the masses of fans myself in concerts, events, and the audience it commands overseas, they did something right.
  7. Bandai DX VF-31

    I've come to the conclusion that if I really want one, either my preorder will become available, or it won't and I'll get one down the line once this madness settles down. I may be pissed about NY and their handling, but I'm not about to fly off the handle and spend that much on a toy that is so overpriced due to panic. If it stays at that price for a long time after all this, then I guess I'll be taking sack lunches to work for awhile.
  8. Bandai DX VF-31

    There are several others that I'm aware of, but just never really used because I "had" my trusted few. Now that NY is out for me, I'll probably start using the others. I haven't heard any bad things with CD Japan, and use them regularly, HLJ is OK, Mandarake, and so on. It's sad for them though. I order a lot of stuff, so they'll be losing my money. Not sorry about that, though.
  9. Bandai DX VF-31

    I hate to say it, but this is probably going to be my last time ordering from NY ever again. I'm sure I can fight the "store credit" thing, but the fact that I even have to consider it, without them being proactive on their part is extremely shady business. If it ships, that's great, but this will still be my last order from them. I have one other thing that is already paid for on their site, and one that isn't paid for yet, but once I get my pre-bought stuff, they can sit on my remaining orders. I've already made those orders through other places recently, and therefore, I won't have to worry about their crap next time around.

    What scale will this be in? If it's in 1/60, I'm in.
  11. YF-25 Prophecy Paladin project

    Much, much better. I'm going to try to see if I can make some directions with the new parts, but it's fairly easy to do them. I started work on this today, as I caught a bit of a nasty cold this week, and had to call in the last two days. I'm hoping to have this part done over the weekend, but I seriously doubt I'll get it done. Too many things to do, but here's the first stages with the newer designed parts...
  12. YF-25 Prophecy Paladin project

    OK, I will be putting these up for sale in another thread, but for those of you who have already purchased them, here are the origin instructions. The kit is put together the same way basically. Aside from slight aesthetic designs being redone, I did change the backpack hinge and there are steel metal pins that fit and need to be cut on the part of the lance that connects to the backpack. I have also added two 2mm magnets that can be added to the backpack connector. They are optional to help secure the lance in fighter a little better, but aren't necessary. The sect should stay secure quite well without it. As I've mentioned earlier, there is also an optional knee connector I created that IMO, works better than the one that was designed originally. The link is in one of my previous comments here, but I have also sent a version just like the original if you want to keep that original. In any case, here's the original instructions.
  13. Bandai DX VF-31

    Thanks. So, that kinda leaves me in a bad spot, being that I preordered mine on the 10/13/17.
  14. Bandai DX VF-31

    OK, back to the topic of NY for the Kairos. What was the last batch of these that have been shipped from them? Are they at least shipping any of them out as far as we know, or are we all just waiting for some type of miracle to drop?
  15. Bandai DX VF-31

    I'm on the bandwagon for asking for my refund from NY. I get uncomfortable waiting for a month after something has been released, and it's been paid for, for quite sometime now. I am worried about not getting a toy, and then them not giving a refund because they've had my payment for so long. If I really want this, which I really, really do, then I'll pay more elsewhere.
