DX VF-171EX from Macross Frontier

Recommended Posts

Love the standard VF-171.....though, would that canopy still work on the EX nose section or would it require an new nose?

Chris

The CF canopy is definitely wider than the EX version, but considering the entire cockpit on the VF-171 rotates up, it shouldn't be too hard to replace that entire section. It's hard to tell from the pictures so far, but the portion that moves might be big enough for the standard canopy already.

Considering they planned ahead so well for the armor and super parts with the renewal VF-25, I can't imagine they'd pass up a chance to milk this mold, and the CF is really the only other thing you can get out of it.

I got 3 pre-orders in with 3 different shops (Anime-Export, iShop2Go and HLJ), so hopefully, I'll get all 3, or at least 1.

Call me greedy, but I really want multiples of this.

I'd rather have gotten one from AmiAmi, but the preorder died midway through me placing my order. :lol: Got one at BBTS, so I'll just have to hope they don't overestimate the supply again.

I wanted 1 and managed to get 2. I was all worried for nothing

There should be another BBTS (I know) order floating around somewhere now that I cancelled mine.

Just ordered now after emailing them for days. No sign of the YF-29 Durandal though. :(

Good to see more MWers getting in. Good ol' HLJ - I should never doubt them. I'm still looking for a YF-29 myself. Well maybe down the road someone would be willing to trade a YF-29 for a VF-171EX :)

And "Order Stop"

That was a lot quicker than the 3 hour run the other day

ARGH!! Again, I was in the shower this time. :lol:

Stop making excuses. If you really wanted one you shouldn't be taking showers.

Oh, I got a BBTS order in, so I'm not that worried. I'd just love to have the extra insurance of an HLJ order as well. ^_^

If I ordered through HLJ, this is gonna be my 4th Preorder , each from different sources.

Hah.... i dunno, maybe in July, everybody who ordered multiples across sources will be selling the extras, and that could have downward pressure on the prices... lol~!

If that happens, I'll blame Bandai again.

I'm getting really annoyed with this. I'm constantly looking at this thread and i always seem to miss these preorder windows. Very frustrating.

So do I, but after getting screwed over by them on the VF-25S, I wouldn't be too confident either, if I were you.

Toy-wave has pre-orders up. It looks like the online Hong Kong stores are now getting their turn now. Hopefully that lessons the panic around here.....probably not lol.

This might sound crazy, but in the end, hygiene is more important than robot toys. You're doing a favour not only for yourself , but also for the outside perception of our community. ;)

I missed HLJ, again, but went ahead and ordered through toywave. If the HLJ preorder opens up again, I plan to go with them. This is what I get for going out and drinking :-)

Again, this is good. Let's live our lives, have fun, socialize, not be oppressed into slavery by the evil Bandai regime. It's the only way they'll learn. B))

I have yet to have even been close to getting one of these preorders. I sucked it up and ebay'd it
