  1. You were right! I had not even tried playing it because I saw the region 2 batch on the dvd cover. It plays fine. it has almost the same content of the commercials plus an interview with Kawamori supervising the development, very cool. I’m planning of completing the model. A friend of mine in Japan is buying the volumes for me each week. One question though. Without subscribing, there is no chance to get the seated pilot too? Will it be sold separately?
  2. Anybody saw the contents of the DVD from the first box? Is it worth watching? It’s region 2, I think I still have a couple of chances to switch regions from my pc dvd player.
  3. I got those 2 volumes and I love the details. I would probably not finish the entire valkyrie, but I would be pleased to have the whole cockpit finished and display it like the CMs gashapon. One thing I’m afraid not getting is the pilot. It is an extra that comes by subscribing and if I’m not mistaken, it won’t be offered in local stores or online.
  4. I like the Hasegawa approach of the skulls so I painted mine with black sharpie.
  5. Same thing for me. Checked my AE account and my order is for the April batch, even though I ordered it soon after the pre-order started.
  6. Not an expert, but what I will do with mine is I will cover the “I” with black and paint a new one on the other side. It won’t look perfect, but at least not inverted.
  7. Yes, check the For sale section of the forum.
  8. After a long hibernation, I managed to make a new sheet of SDF-1 stickers for the 1/3000 toy. It has almost all the marks to redecorate your old toy. It will go for US$10 shipped.
  9. Hey! Just so this post, I have not been around on the forum for quite some time. Seems there is some interest for a SDF-1 sticker reissue . I will give it a shot and hope to find the best material for this. Give me a week to see if It’s possible.
  10. DX cockpit with some painting detail looks great.

    I just got an email from HLJ, they cancelled my order due to a system error. HLJ has to fix those errors as they have become frecuent with Macross toys.

    Thanks Smacky, got both!
  13. The HUD decal was part of one of my first custom stickers for the Yamato 1/48 toy. Those are long sold out, I'm no longer making stickers. I was lucky to keep one that had that display sticker.
  14. Custom stickers for toys are a thing of the past. Toys have improved considerably and now Arcadia and Bandai use tampo markings as standard. I'm glad Bandai has added tons of markings for the DX, more than Arcadia. It looks very nice.
  15. Got my DX VF-1J and this is the toy I always wanted. It is so pretty!. Almost no need for mods, but I had to add some detail to the gun and laser cannons as someone already did. Anybody already detailed the cockpit? I've always been a fan of a good cockpit for the VF-1. Here is mine and looks great. I will try gerwalk mode next.
