I found a set of S&S parts on feeBay for the Stealth Strike Parts. The guy had a bid on it already. I messaged him asking if he had a BIN and to name his price. He said because there was a bit he wanted to let it run out. I'll bet I get it for less than he could have gotten out of me.;)

So did you pull the trigger on that Stealth SSP set? B))

The one on Ebay I was referencing to went for $163.00 I think (that's a good price these days), others are selling it for much higher prices. 

The Stealth Box set w/SSP are really pricey, some as high as $700.00+ on eBay.

Sure did! Won the auction last night. I asked the guy to end it early and name his price. He wanted to let it ride (and didn't give me a number). I ended up getting it for about $100 less than I was willing to go. I'll call that win!

Plus tax and shipping they were $182.96. A steal really. I've got $412 in the valk and S&S parts. They're both new.:yahoo:

Congrats @sqidd That's a really good price shipped, plus the fact it looks brand new & untouched! :D

For a $105.00 shipped I picked up another Yamato 1/48 Roy Focker, I felt it was a good price & nabbed it!! B))

After a couple of years I have come back, and I bought a Hi-Metal R VF-4 from Mandarake. It’s taking a while for the shipment to get underway.

Can we get more angles of Azuka? For research purposes...

All of a sudden I get a text update saying that my package will arrive this Thursday. Which is thrilling and disappointing all at the same time. 
 

Thrilling because it’ll be here soon, but disappointing because I turn around and leave for a Bolt Action tournament as soon as I get home that day...

I still think one of the most impressive details on that version is how Yamato actually went to the trouble to paint the wiring on the gear.  For all of Bandai's obsession with tampo, I'd trade all the "NO STEP"s in an instant for painted gear.

As much as I like my Bandai 1/48's (and I do!). It really would have been nice of they basically took the Yamato and added 20yrs of technology, design and production technique to it. The only thing I don't like about my Yamato's is that they a lot less refined, things are looser, etc. Aside from that the Yamato's are pretty much perfect.

Watching Jenius' comparison video was very telling. I sold my one 1:48 Yamato off years ago (which I did adore at the time) and went with all 1:60V2's from then on out.  The DX does do several things better as he pointed out in the comparison video.  Little things, a lot of which I hadn't really caught just by of the amount of time gone by and looking at people's pics here.  We all know that Bandai will never best Yamato in the sheer choices of paint schemes, but it has to be said in my opinion that other than the stupid non white landing gear, the teeny weeny TV pilots, the the odd fall apart waist gimmick, (which I do get having it but dang it's annoying), and the arms not locking as securely as the should in fighter mode, the DX engineering wise is king of the hill.  We'll see how they stand the test of time.  In 10 years will they still be as good as the V2's are now?  Time will tell I suppose.

Same here. I'd much rather apply a few decals myself than go through the hassle of carefully masking and painting the landing gear and having to take great care not to accidentally peel off Bandai's shoddy tampo application.

And yet despite Bandai's tampo craze, they still miss some key markings that I consider a must, like the ejection seat warnings and the skull insignia behind the cockpit. Then there's the stupid 100 printing...

"Except for [insert long list of drawbacks], the DX is the best VF-1 ever!"

Reminds me of a drug commercial where most of the run time is spent on warnings and side effects.

"If your gunpod stays extended for more than four hours, please see your doctor right away." :lol:

Another thing I've noticed is how far forward leaning the DX front landing gear is, which became even more noticeable after @jenius posted his side by side comparison pic:

Bandai-DX-VF-1S-Hikaru-5.jpg.0ca17bfbcad3e58c6bc338cf42f829e1.thumb.jpg.6a1c3929c04f4588f303862b1290dc06.jpg

Not a major thing, but now I can't unsee it.

Also, even the DX DYRL pilot is still too small, but way better than the TV pilots.

10 years?  Just hope the joints and stuff to not be loosey-goosey after a year or so...

It really is a beautiful piece though. 

I think my one nitpick is that the headlights need some work to black out the light bleed.  The lights look good, but the way they are piped through the lenses lets a bit too much leaking into the red plastic around the lights.

Better late than never, Dorkside.  Gamestop hooked me up three months ago.

My Marvel Legends Love Triangle 3 packs from Dorkside should be coming in tomorrow.  The delay was out of their control.
