Thank god i was able to get over my obsessive compulsive syndrome. An issue smaller than this had made me pick up a second VF-19P!

Hate to bring this up but do we know if someone has had aligned intake tampo printing? I only opened mine today - yes 5 or so months later - and saw that mine are not aligned either (from NY in case you ask).

Mine is not aligned either. Bought from AmiAmi. And that's a small thing for me now compared of having a loose right knee joint. :lol:

With items this expensive, I try and keep them as emaculate as possible for as long as possible. It just really sucks when issues arise that seem like they could have been easily avoided in production.

Is there any way to tighten up this joint? has anyone attempted this one yet?

I did try opening up the thigh area by removing the screw cover first. But the damn thing was so tight. :wacko: I finally get the chance of opening up the front part but the rear part (the blue painted part) won't cooperate. And I don't want to put stress on the front side just to open the back part area so I decided to stop. I might cause too much damage on the front part area just by trying to open it up. Good thing it didn't left any stress marks on it. But definitely on my eye it really show that someone tried to open it up. :lol:

By the way, just by trying, I kinda broke my nail. :p

Ok. So I did finally open the thigh part on my VF-0D and successfully tightened the knee swivel joint after the 'cracking' sound it made. I guess the peg that connects both halves of the thigh were so tight I accidentally broke it. Now after repair, one of the thigh has a 1mm gap from the back. I might do the same on the other thigh since after the other one got repaired, the other one became loose. Now both thighs will have gaps if ever. Hehehe. :lol:

Got my 0D today and I like it for the most part. Pretty solid in all modes. However, on mine the right leg swivel is a little loose and the left shoulder is a little loose. Additionally, does anyone else have some stress marks on the grey tabs that clips into the legs in fighter mode? Good toy...but not sure if it's $290 good.

My VF-0D doesn't have any of those problems. Edited by sh9000

You're not confusing paint rub for stress marks are you? The tabs on the legs are painted and the paint will come off when tabbed in and out of the backpack.

Mine has a loose right hip, not detached but definitely noticeably sloppy compared to the left leg

Is that mail-order only? I haven't seen it in any of the toy/model shops I've visited during my stay here in Japan.

I don't believe so. I wasn't talking about any of the leg tabs that are painted blue. I was specifically talking about the grey tabs on the back that anchor into the leg slots. Initially it was very hard to pull the legs down and while I tried using even pressure it looks like some small white stress marks appeared around the grey tabs.

Nice photos SuperHobo! Loving the relaxed poses! B)):lol:

Thanks! Got to change up the standard valk poses here and there.

those look like shoots for the cover of valkrie illustrated... ;)

Or covers from other magazines........ :wub::ph34r:

HA, so I was right about there being pegs in the back of the thigh armor sorry you had to break them, in my opinon the pegs should have been short and rounded just to align it with the other, not long and tight to connect, just so you can easily remove them for minor repairs.

Nice custom on the Max GBP Sh9000, judging from the number of post you made so far, you're a newbie welcome.

Yeah thats one of the painful issues with buying through the auction sites are the fees and double handling. But its still a handy service to have. I have found quite a few good things on there!

I may have asked this before but a search didn't bring anything up:

Are there any cool schemes in the Master File book? Either -0D or -0C? I know of a low-vis grey one, but that's it. Are there more?

(thinking about a potential future repaint or remold release)

There was the VF-0C VMFAT-203 low viz scheme and the regular blue/yellow tail version like the model.

As for the VF-0D there isn't any shown but there was descriptions of which VF groups they belong to with reference VF-0 schemes. There was the VF-9 dark blue top/grey bottom, the VF-11 (though I don't know which version) either the multi blue/grey patterned one with black cockpit area or the one with the reaper on it's tail and Skull squads ones

There was a grey scheme in the same pattern as the released VF-0D, it is shown in formation with Shin in his training montage, it is also used as the line art comparison on Anymoon.com

I would jump at a grey D, good looking and shown in the anime.

So this is about to happen.

I'll start with a heavy coat of the dark dirt wash to try and get some panel line detail and

then go with they white in search of a slightly more representative overall lighter blue finish.

Wish me luck............please?!
