    Bandai DX VF-31

    With the reissue of the 31F, I have now purchased double the VF-31s that I had originally planned. I was planning on being happy with just the 31J and 31C, going for the red/blue matched set, Then I saw the color they used on the 31S, and just had to get that one too. 3/5 of Delta Platoon, might as well snag a 31F if/when the reissue pops up, go all the way and eventually get all five once they get around to releasing the 31E. I was fine until I started spending more time here, several successful years avoiding valkyrie purchases, Though truthfully I can't say I regret any of my purchases, so I'm happy with how things turned out.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Other than the laser, mine is wonderful. I'll probably take a screwdriver to the hips, they are awfully tight and scary to move. I'm definitely a fan. Aesthetically, I'd go in favor of the Arcadia. In terms of handling/posing, definitely the Bandai. I put in a ticket with HLJ and a pic of the damage, so I'll have to wait and see what happens. I'm gonna need a second Detolf.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    And here’s September’s HLJ haul. Two new VS vehicles, Splash and Magic. One of the new Zoids kits I like the look of, the Muteki Shogun super minipla set, DX YF-19 with broken head laser, HG 00 Sky (Higher Than Sky Phase) (I’m a sucker for effect parts and other gimmicks, since I originally felt that the kit’s color scheme was too washed out. Finally, the Diver Ace Unit for my 00 Diver kit, it’s super cheap and helps to flesh out the kit a bit.

    One more bit about min, in regards to the laser. No damage to the packaging or the shipping box, though the figure was placed in the shipping box upside-down. I’ll send HLJ a message and the photo when I get home tonight. At least it’ll let them know things are going on, and they’ll probably give me a coupon. I doubt they’ll have any spare for replacements.

    Haven’t opened the toy any further, but wanted to take a peek. I’m not gonna bother trying to get a replacement from HLJ (I doubt they’ll have any), just gonna glue it. The tip is inside the packaging, near the canopy. This isn’t the first trouble I’ve had with a YF-19, when I first got my Arcadia, it was missing a canard.

    HLJ charged and shipping requested! (Along with a bunch of other stuff from this month)

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    That’s what I figured. The big green missile device is the LPP-12, the other green one is the SPP-8 (which I just noticed has 8 barrels on it). I did a bit of digging a couple years ago when Arcadia reissued their YF-19, which is when I found that thread.

    Seto answered that question a couple of years ago on Mecha Talk (MAHQ’s forums) http://www.mechatalk.net/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=16548

    July’s HLJ haul! I wasn’t a fan of the 31S color scheme, until I saw the shade they used on the DX. It’s much less Christmassy than it first appeared. I knew Dinobot was big, just didn’t realize how big. Good Cool Kaiser VSX is a wonderfully over the top cluster gattai, yeah the feet don’t like to stay on when picked up, but I’m a fan for how ridiculous it is. (I’ll post a pic after work).

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I wasn’t planning on picking this one up, until I saw the fingers.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    My 31S is sitting in PW too, going to wait until Dinobot releases next week to ship everything. And that’s after originally deciding that I wasn’t a fan of Arad’s color scheme, and not interested in buying his figure.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Well, I think I'm gonna take the store credit voucher for my 31A. I had originally ordered 10/23, with Air Mail Registered. I figure that money will be better spent elsewhere (Masterpiece Beast Wars Megatron preorder)

    Yeah, the F-91 2.0 I got last month. Forgot about the lighting unit until after I shipped.

    June’s haul. Iron Man’s left bicep swivel was too tight, and it ended up twisting the peg off. Good news is that since the break is so far inside the bicep/shoulder assembly, there’s still enough friction to hold the arm on. I’ll just need to be extra gentle with that arm.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Put in a ticket, just asking for a status update. They responded: Figured at worst I'd get this message, at best maybe give them a poke and hope it helps getting my order fulfilled.
