DX VF-171EX from Macross Frontier

Recommended Posts

It is just a material test shot that happen to dark grey on the legs and purple at other places. The leg armor pack will have extra thrusters on them.

Those aren't the packs, that's an unpainted prototype using random colors.... I hope.

Given Bandai's love of casting things in the wrong color, I hope they didn't make the entire lower leg dark, and then paint it white...

The stand's display arm and attachment piece are huge honking unsightly monsters, but that Nightmate Plus looks oh so sweet...

Yeah.. I really can't stand any of the display stands these companies make for their stuff.. Why do they always have to be so ugly and huge? Haven't they ever seen anyone make a stand with a freaking post that goes in a hole? It's not that hard.

I at least would have preferred it to be a clear stand instead of straight black. But whatever. At least the valk looks awesome.

I think they just set it up on a spare VF-25 Renewal stand.

Base is different, I think this is what we will have.

Yeah, I think so too.

Sucks that it isn't a New U.N. Spacy base. Oh well.

I had a dream last night that my VF-171EX arrived at the same time as the Yamato VF-17D. It was sweet unboxing them together.

Somehow, I'm not at all surprised you'd have such a dream; can't put my finger as to why... :DB))

What is the tail number on Alto's VF-171? His VF-25F is "007". I wonder if that will be different because it is not SMS assigned.

It seems there is a lack of a thigh swivel joint and outwards-movement hip articulation. :(

That's the 1/72 kit. Also, did you notice the 25G renewal has already been announced, and it's coming in autumn? :p

It's got a thigh swivel in right above the knee joint.

the fact that the mounting cradle doesn't match the figure is kinda suspect

I'd think the final toy would have something that cupped the delicate underside a bit better

Ah you mean the nose/belly section!

Yes, we need something that aligns better with the belly...

Just wondering (and it's probably been asked or discussed among the myriad posts on this thread already), but will Bandai's run of this toy even be able to satisfy the number of pre-orders being taken? With all the "Hey, this place reopened their pre-orders!" jazz going on, seems like retailers are just putting new ones up on a whim...?

As long as there is no up-front money in the equation, if a retailer flakes out on their pre-order commitments either due to their over selling or supplier's inability to fill quotas, I won't be too distressed over it. Now, if the retailer takes payment first and then fails to deliver we've got problems.

OK, this is weird - went to check my HLJ open orders - and I get this;

The VF-0 is supposed to come out this month

We haven't seen previews yet though so it will probably be like the 30th

I check HLJ, the VF-171 is still not ready.

Yep, just checked now - open orders page has returned to normal. I too double checked the 171's release date!
