The price looks pretty good with all those parts included , make it a good deal for me.  Will buy for sure . 

Hope they will release the blue sword down the line too .

Saw this over at TFW2005. Apparently there is a add-on set planned for the Astraea comming:

Hopefully there will  a blue sword as a standalone item for the regular Avalanche Exia like Bandai did with the GN Sword Blaster II for the Seven Swords. 

That looks like the Xenogear. I wished I ordered astrae now.

The price is not bad if you look into all the extra parts in this option set.
Unlike the original dash option parts. this time they have to add in the 2 Shoulder ,2 side legs parts , rear and front skirt parts. just to make it into RED Avalanche first
Then you have the red Dash option parts.

Now the extras. My favorite. The Long GN swords that can split in to 2 swords. (you get 2 sets, so 2 long GN sword)
the 4 extra shields (I think that's over kill) 
and the gn sword 1

I'm most likely in for 2 so I have a set per Astraea.

They really need to release that for the Avalanche Exia. Others was forced to buy the third party release just to get that Big Ass sword (whatever it is called)

Does anyone have seen an Open PO for astraea?

The first batch is getting release on 5-25.  So you might see it on Mandarake soon. 

Since it was a TWE , having reopening will normally means increasing price.

loopaza has it

I got the very last one, I think, during the wave of pre-orders. I was looking for the second batch and noticed the first batch was still up on their site. I placed by order with the first batch and afterwards it went from "available" to "sold out". 

The shipping method is Fedex International Economy, I am hoping to get next week.

Looks like my proxy was able to preorder the option parts for me .   Glad option parts are so easy to get.

Hahaha! :lol: I think one is enough. I just want to have two modes. One regular set and one with the add-on optional set. Best of both worlds. ;)

I bought it with a marked up price already from a seller with a May batch order. There were a few sellers that has their item with a Buy It Now option when I bought mine. But now all I see are bidding options and the lowest one I see is Y29000.

Does anyone know if there is anyplace that sells used /custom pieces for Metal build?

I bought a Destiny MB and the pieces that mount to the hands are missing. The seller is looking for them but I dont have much hope.
