    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I wonder if that is the one I returned although my box was perfect when I returned it. Some else’s return?

    Gundam Figure Thread - Newtype GN-002

    We can already know how it will compare to MB line since it’s already been released twice before . This is a 3rd release of this toy, but with new markings. I suspect there will not be any changes to the mold. Its a solid toy with excellent articulation, detailing, and gimmicks. I wouldn’t say it’s better than the MB line, but it’s definitely at the same level. It’s leagues better than everything else that came before it in the GFFMC line.

    Arcadia 1/60 Perfect Transformation VF-0D for 2015

    Stupid expensive. Gotta sell some organs for that 0D PF. Bandai has all my business now. Also would be annoying if hips still not fixed. Assume they would have the 0S hip fix. You never know though.

    My prediction: 1S Roy, no missiles A few months later TWE Super Packs I’m interested to see how they tuck the 1S head under the body for a super flushed look like the 1J.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    Strangely I felt the same on my other ones. It didn’t feel natural to push it back down as there was some resistance. On this one I just thought I’d try a little bit harder, because logically it’s all designed flush when it’s closed so I can’t understand why it wouldn’t recess again when open. Here might be some build differences between units where the joint isn’t perfectly straight so it catches when open and won’t recess. I’ll need to try on my other 2. I put them back into the boxes again so I’ll look at them over the weekend.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    You may remember I had 1 with a defective wing flap. I have fantastic news. I contacted Amiami about it and went through the procedure to report defective items. Amiami replaced the item free of charge. They covered the return shipping and shipping of the replacement. Today I received my replacement and it’s the best one of my 3 units. I put it through a complete transformation to check for any faults and it looks great! All tampo complete. Joints all working correctly. Wing flaps not defective and no weird scratch markings next to the ordinance slots. also perfectly straight wings! My other 2 have misaligned wings when folded. I also wanted to show that the tow bar can in fact be angled more than 90 degrees. Once the front door is open you need to push it back in. There will now be enough clearance. To close, you need to pull the door out again, fold and push it back down. I’d also like to mention that Amiami were very helpful throughout and very apologetic about the defective item. From the general negative view of Ami’s CS by MWF I was skeptical that they were going to replace my faulty unit once I shipped it back. I honestly thought once they received it, I’d suddenly be told there was no more stock so I would simply be given a refund of store credit. They assured me that a new unit had been reserved for me and would be shipped out upon safe receipt of my defective unit. It is important to note that during the process I did not request or demand a replacement. Once they confirmed the defect per their T&C they offered me the replacement. It was very strange they did have a new unit for me even though it was Order Stop. I wonder, Do they have spare units for this kind of thing or does Bandai have spare units to send to retailers should they have warranty claims? I also wonder what has happened to my defective unit. Will it be sold by Ami as a preowned unit, but still cost more than the SRP (based on current market value)?

    I recall it was confirmed many pages back that the DX YF-19 ordinance are indeed compatible, but just slightly under sized.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    One thing that really sticks out for me on the Kitz are the feet in fighter mode. They just don’t close like they should. They’re suppose to get slimmer towards the end when fully closed for fighter, but on the Kitz they’re molded to be a little bit broader toward the ends, so they look larger at the ends when closed. Definitely Battloid mode was prioritised over Fighter and Guardian. That is probably why it’s displayed in Battloid in the box and the box art. You’re buying a robot that can transform into a hybrid machine and a fighter jet.

    VF-X Valkyrie shirt design - Help me choose!

    I voted for H, but would suggest an alternate design with the block backing of TEST PROGRAM be orange. I really like the orange flair on the I and J.

    Whats next for Arcadia?

    As much as I'd love to see a PF VF-0D or PF VF-4 FB, I would not be able to afford the premium on top of the already expensive Arcadia base price for these toys. I'll save my money for the inevitable DX VF-1 releases instead.

    Kitz Concept Robotech Toy Line

    But it's not in the line art. So Bandai really tried to follow the line art closely in that regard, where as all other kits and toys have the grill.

    METAL BUILD RELEASES

    Too pricey for me. Have to curb my toy collecting to toys I absolutely love and exclude all the “cool” toys. It’s just too expensive. Blaming Marie Kondo for her philosophy of items that “spark joy”.

    Macross figures

    It must show in the poor sales of Freyja and Mikumo. Bandai just aren’t going to release the rest of Walküre.
