    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    I wonder if you’re ordering a large number of TWE items would it be better to go with a proxy service instead of NY, as NY’s shipping is always highly inflated, granted that the proxy service is not also charging inflated shipping. Also the chance of getting your items from NY has been sketchy for greater than 1 qty TWE item.

    I feel if Bandai is releasing a MB of a particular release, and we are able to obtain it first hand from a retailer (not scalp price), we should support Bandai and buy that over a 3rd party release. It's only fair if we've bought the official Bandai version we have the option to also own a 3rd party release of the same toy (unless the original is still available to purchase at SRP - which is highly unlikely for GFFMC / MB releases). Grey area when it comes to units that Bandai have not announced or different scale.

    Depends if your CC charges currency conversion fees for making a payment in yen. Personally I always pay in the store’s native currency and let my CC do the currency conversion, as my CC doesn’t have any currency conversion or international transaction fees.

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    This is one line I’m happy to collect hero units for. My list: - VF-1J Hikaru in all 3 modes - VF-1S Fokker TV in battroid mode - VF-1S Hikaru TV in fighter mode with Super packs - VF-1D Trainer in gerwalk mode maybe: VF-1A Max in battroid mode I probably wouldn’t get the GBP unless it’s released as a bundle with the 1J.

    Who else is going to end up gluing those faux ailerons into place to increase the playability?

    Quite nice effort from MClub. I'd still get the official MCGFF version from Bandai first as it's the right thing to do. If I wasn't able to get one at retail / near retail price, then I'd consider getting the MClub release. Doubt I would get too. Not sure if I need that much Char Zaku in my life. Can MClub please make some GMs? Like the 0083 Armored GM or Unicorn Jesta?

    Not sure it's a 100% clone copy of that kit. There are many subtle differences all over, but no doubt heavily influenced.

    I like all of it except for the fore arms. Why add beam shield emitters? Nice to see MC doing an original mold though.

    Minmei included with the MHR gives me confidence that if a DX VF-1D is ever released it will most likely also come with Minmei.

    Ah I see. Thanks for clearing that up.

    The same anecdotal evidence could be taken from the VF-25 V2 series. I didn't think there were any adjustments to that design for any of the toys in that series. Granted the Ver 1 was kind of the test bed for that series right? If the DX VF-1 is fine on the VF-1J I wouldn't expect Bandai revise the DX with Ver 1.1, 1.2 etc. They did well on the 31 series as mentioned. Also the 29 too?

    I find it interesting how the interest changed a lot since the announcement this year. I recall it was a split of people people saying they didn't want anything to do with a 1/48 line since they already invested heavily in their 1/60 line, and the other set of members saying they'd buy it since it's almost like a the V3 of Perfect Transformation VF-1 or members who just cannot pass up any release of the VF-1. So many of us looking forward to the DX. unless it's just because members who are not interested and no longer participating in the thread. I'm looking forward to this release A LOT. I'm hoping there aren't any 1st release syndrome issues as jenius is predicting. Look at the VF-19 Adv and the YF-19 Full Pack. It went the other way in for those.
