Recommended Posts

i wouldnt mind them if they reissued the armor parts! that would be too much armor for 1 year i suppose with the 31S armors incoming as well...

Are they re-issuing the Renewal Messiahs? How come Alto's DX VF-25F is on display along with the DX YF-19?

Was wondering that myself.  I'd definitely be in for a reissue of the vf-25f.  I've been looking around for one, but I'm a little hesitant to drop that kind of cash on a toy that is almost 7 years old.  I'm more worried about durability and looseness than the actual design.

I'd be down for one, even if it is a straight re-issue.  Maybe the would try to add the vf-31 ratcheting hips to the vf-25?

I already have all of them but if a reissue VF-25 for the anniversary gets them to also release the Vajra then that would be cool.  I’ll also welcome Valkyries and enemies from Macross Frontier for HMR as well.

I’d buy another 25A if Bandai did that.

No reissue. That's from the Mitsukoshi Department store gallery/cafe. It runs from Sept 5-17. Check it out the speaker pod cast's website for more info:

Just a quick question:

I'm looking at two YJA auctions for the VF-25 Renewal Armor Parts (one F, one S), and they've both reached ~25k yen. Is that close to what they typically go for nowadays? I'd have expected something closer to 10k, maybe 15k, more akin to other expansion parts sets.

(They end tomorrow morning in case you're interested.)

Renewal parts are pricey. I sold my opened copies for 230-250 USD just last year. I'd expect those to go higher.

That's crazy. Why? Just popular, maybe? High RRP to begin with?

Original price was like 8800 yen or so. High secondary market prices because the armor parts are awesome and Frontier was a much better show.

When I got into this hobby a few years back, it was sitting at 18,000 yen for MISB. Then the ozma got reissued (at the time of announcement, all Armor pack in Mandarake got sold out lol), Alto got reissued a lot, then the normal price became 32,000 yen.

 

From time to time, Mandarake will have those from 22,000 yen to 28,000 yen for opened version. Currently, Ozma has a higher price than Alto's Armor pack.

@Kuma Style Once you get those super parts on you’ll be hooked!! The VF-25 renewals are awesome! One gripe it the thigh joints get loose.  But that can be rectified with some nail polish or super glue to tighten them up.

Quick question. Are we supposed to unscrew and expose the joint to apply the nail polish, or we kinda make it drip down the joint?

The best way is to drip the polish into the joint and then move the joint around to get it all coated. Then leave it alone to dry. Repeat if necessary.

How do you even watch out for that? My stuff is displayed in cases and the lights in then are switch activated and LEDs.

By keeping an eye on your 25F and how it reacts to temperature and direct sunlight.  When most people reported the issue I think it occurred during higher temps and being exposed to sunlight.

I'm torn tbh. I absolutely love the fighter mode on this and may display it this way long term tbh. We'll see though.

No worries sir. Though I'm hoping @Saburo's pic will persuade you on getting it. :rolleyes:

I'm cool. I'd like to just be given space to enjoy what I have atm vs thinking about buying more stuff for something I haven't even transformed yet.
