    Huh. The QC on mine is the best of the renewals so far. Looks like some people got lemons. Whatever. They'll all end up with loose joints in six months anyway even if you don't touch them.

    Thanks for the kind words guys. The grappling hooks are made of plastic, and the wire is the same as the little alternate Alto you got with the VF-25F. As for the toy, I don't know about anyone else who has theirs already, but the QC on mine is awesome. No major paint problems, no bent or warped pieces, no floppy wings, all the joints are tight, but not too tight... Bandai really did a great job. I figure I have to go through the ridiculous preorder hunt at least one more time, which would be for Luca's. Maybe twice, if they do a renewal VF-27, which I really hope they do. But other than that, I think I am done for Frontier unless Bandai decides to venture into doing Klan Klang's Queadluun or something, which probably won't happen.

    The towline hooks just underneath. The money shot.

    I got an email from Anime-Export telling me the 25G was in. I told them to ship it immediately, so I should get a shipping payment request soon.
  5. Ugh. They went from ugly to... Ugly. Meh. More money for Luca's Messiah.
  6. It's actually very easy to do. The hard part is getting them on the first time. I was wary about it as well, but when I packed mine away, they came off easily.
  7. The VF-27 is my favorite design from Frontier, and may be my all time favorite valk. Here's my take: - Absolutely gorgeous fighter mode. I believe it is very comparable to the renewals. - Gerwalk is also great. Again, comparable to the renewals. - Battroid is where you see the major differences. It's just shorter and fatter than the renewals. If you are going to keep it in fighter or gerwalk, it might be worthwhile getting, but not at current eBay prices. I wish they would do a renewal 27. Maybe next year after Luca's RVF-25 comes out. I would buy two of those suckers.
  8. Yes. That is entirely way too much for a straight up repaint that's not even part of the show. Might as well wait. Patience is a virtue.
  9. You know that's not how it will work. Some of the people that are saying it sucks will be the same people who'll claim they just ordered one from three different sites to make sure they get their preorder, and then say they just ordered three from HLJ. Haha
  10. Pretty much. Someone certainly got in shape for summer to show off their beach body, haha.
  11. Damn I hate that. I just had one of my deliveries do that yesterday. The postman usually comes around between 10-11:30 am every day. He always tries to ring my unit first to see if I'm there. Never changes. But once in a while someone new is on the route, and this time that person showed up at 7:30 am yesterday apparently, since that is when they left the delivery card. I was up by 6:45 am and didn't leave for work until 8 am. So there was NO WAY I missed them buzzing me unless they never bothered to in the first place. The phone was right next to me the whole time. Weaksauce.
  12. Yeah, I probably wouldn't have the Fast packs on the 17 during Gerwalk. It should hold, but it might stress, like you said. At least on mine I'm pretty sure that would be the case. As for the swappable wings, I still think that was a dumb idea on Bandai's part. I'm lucky the pins on mine are fine, but I figure once I pull them out to swap out the wings, it may loosen them and they may not be the same again.
  13. Short answer: no. Yamato needs to examine their pricing.
