    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Exactly. There's no way to tell until we actually see a transformation video (of the final product).

    Got 1 at Ami Ami. Going back to bed.
  3. For the VF-1, make the color gray (or maybe off-white, like in the Yamato days). At least don't make them pinkish. Lower the price. Diecast shoulders and hip joints in the VF-1 would be nice.

    Arcadia: 1/60 VF 1S Roy Focker Special Movie Ver

    Same here, the foot thruster fell off my Arcadia Roy VF-1S when transforming it last week. No problem, it slid right back into place (i'll glue it back at some point.) In Arcadia's defense, I was probably trying to open the foot one too many clicks, so I'm just glad it didn't break.

    Try the Tamiya thin liquid cement (it's about $5 at hobby stores), it fuses the plastic together nicely (it's ether PVC or ABS, not sure which). It melts the plastic a little at first, you'll need small tools like a tweezers or small needle nosed pliers to place the parts directly after applying the glue, otherwise you can smudge the plastic permanently if you get a finder print on it. I'm not sure Shapeways will work on this, the parts are very small.

    Earlier in the thread someone said that they contacted the guy and he said negotiations broke down and he wasn't selling the parts. As a side note, I repaired my NUNS triangle with Tamiya extra thin cement. So far so good, although I only had a crack and a small piece broken from it...

    Thanks, I think I see it now. I've been afraid to transform it until I loosened the screw first. Now if I can only do step 2 without breaking the leg off!

    I need to check the right shoulder piece on mine, it looks like it has a stress mark and a small crack forming above the U. I'd like to also loosen both screws on the left and right shoulders as a preventative measure. I'm not seeing how to remove the shoulder piece (is that the one with the big "171" on it?). I don't see a green shoulder piece. How are you guys taking the shoulder apart?

    VF-0 Replacement Parts

    A bundled left shoulder and elbow would be perfect for me, but I would buy them separate as well. Thanks!

    VF-0 Replacement Parts

    Thanks for doing this, my VF-0A is one of my favorites and I've kept it even with a broken arm. My VF-0A's left shoulder/bicep is broken. Will these parts be for both the right and left arms?

    Do you still need replacement shoulder hinges for your V.2 VF-1?

    Is it too late to place an order from the alternate source? Would there be any extras?

    Yamato 1:60 Max and Miria vf 22 repaints!!!!!!

    I noticed this on mine. But it looks like the back section has a smoother finish, and the rest of the plastic has a little more of a matte finish. I think this gives the illusion of a shading difference.
