Wow got this in the post today. Really fast shipping from HLJ.

Has the toy yellowed or is it still pristine? I didn't expect a toy from 2 years ago to suddenly be in stock.

I've yet to open it up. It's been a busy weekend. Do these have a history of yellowing with age?

None that I know of. Mine is still white outside the box.

I have three of them and they have been on display since purchase (away from direct sunlight I might add) and none of them show any signs of yellowing in the slightest! :D

In fact none of my (nearly 30) DX Valkyrie's show any signs of discoloration! and that includes any of the ones that I purchased second hand and not knowing their entire display history.. B))

Good job Bandai! good job. ^_^

You guys have me paranoid now, whenever this thread gets a new post I have to check and make sure the YF-30 isn't back up for sale somewhere else :lol: .

Still in the box, eh? Even if it came from HLJ and it's the last stock they have, it would be best to inspect it. You still have 8 days to go. ;)

In case you're wondering I said that, better check their policies. Just FYI.

ins't that just crazy! 14k above the original price! and im sorry to say but I just don't see why the 30 deserves to be!? yeah its a good thing but so are most of if not all the other Valkyrie variants but why the heck do these things command sooo much money!? Even the 19Adv! yeah its good but it sure isn't 35k (on or about's and sometime more) good.. 

I'd more than happily pay 37k for a CF VF-1J and appreciate it for the rarity that it is but not for either of the aforementioned pair.. yeah I have 3x 30's.. sometimes not really sure why but im still glad I do. :rolleyes:

My friend. I'm sure you're just happy that you didn't pay Y37K for each of your Chronos. ^_^ 

I guess it's got demand now because of Macross Delta. Or probably it's one of those cases like VF-11C. ;)

ahh yes.. the VF-11C.. again that's one that defies logic to its asking price. I only got one cos it exists as truthfully its down the order in my list of favorite Valkyries.. 

I guess the fact they demand great money does make it a bit more special and yes I paid stupid money for mine and I am glad I did but yeah why oh why is it worth so much!?!?

mysteries of the universe material right there..

A case of a lot of demand and very little supply! Plus having pics of valks in the macross forums does help a "lil" bit..^_^

I don't think a CF VF-1J deserves anywhere near 37k, nor do any other existing Valkyrie toys. 

The infated prices they command on the aftermarket is just based on supply and demand, which don't really correlate with its quality or real value.

Quality or no quality. You gotta get one, right? ;)

A CF VF-1J? Actually no, I don't :)

But if you have the obsessive need to collect each and every 1/60 valkyrie mold/color combination there is, then it's a given that people will spend almost anything just to complete their collection, even if that missing piece happened to be the most unpopular one while it was still widely available.

The YF-30 is a lot cooler than the CF-1J. Just saying.

I can vouch for this, from a certain point of view.

That looks pretty good custom horizons mod. Somebody did Hayate and Mirage's VF-1's for the F-14.

Is the YF-30 a limited release hence the price now? Any chance of a re-issue?

it's a regular release.  But the source material is only 1 video game.

With the VF-31 already out, I doubt they will ever do a re-issue.
