I made a ticket to NY the moment I got the prep in progress notification asking about upgrading my shipping. Still haven't heard back....

So that makes at least 3 of us who's in the same situation I think.  "Prep in progress", but no response on shipping upgrade request.

Received shipping notice from NY (July 1). Now I just have to wait two months for it to get to Seattle, WA. I took the ferry option. :p

Anyone ever have any issues shipping via ferry? Thinking about switching over as who knows when the US will open again for deliveries.

Nice. The way things are going, you might even get yours before some of us get an answer on our UPS shipping upgrade request!

Oh Yeah, it shipped! The next couple of days are going to suck because of all the anticipation... I'm not even going to be able to work!

FedEx lied to me. They said delivered within the next hour, but it hasn’t even reached customs yet. Expecting it Thurs/Fri at this point.

So my thoughts? It's awesome. This Valk surpasses its predecessor and almost every valkyrie after. No overly tight or loose parts everything felt great to transform no paint chipping or anything. Most of all it is GORGEOUS. Get it if you can.

First thought: Man, that's an expensive shelf.

Second thought: great taste though.

Managed to get two at MSRP, plus a used one from Mandarake for just over MSRP. All in my quest to make sure I actually got a single one...

There's also 4x DX Yf-19 figures, 2EA of DX VF-1S and VF-1A, and both PF and non-PF SDF-1s.

 

Btw you've totally inspired me, need to do a Kairos+VF-0D shelf with the 2 PF 0Ds I have on order.

I actually had two Kairos as well. Snagged them off AmiAmi during a big collection dump from corona. I paid way over MSRP but I still sold it for more than I paid and that money went towards the 0D so it was worth it. It works because its the alpha and omega. The progenitor and top of the line. They both have delta wings too so I think they fit together quite well.

Looks great!  Mine should be here on Fri.  Will definitely be doing Gerwalk.  Hands down.

I do dig Shin next to Kairos but don't want to mess up my Delta display haha!

What is the actual base color of the belly?  Pure white, or light grey?  (ignoring the weathering).  Compared to the tailhook, it looks grey in carceroth's pics, which is a pleasant surprise.

Some more pics of this lovely bird. Also bluetacked the pilots into their seats so they wouldn't jostle around. :D

It isn’t a dark blue/pure white contrast like what we got with the original release. I’ve been looking at mine side by side since I have both and it’s like looking at two completely different 0D liveries. The review that @kkx posted has a good comparison.

I've messaged N-Y about changing my shipping options as well for this figure. They got back to me on separate tickets for the SSP but have so far ignored this message.

Omg....I just went to NY and bought one of these things. Yikes! It is so pretty. So shipping is either the cheap but slow Ferry or super expensive but fast UPS right? Everything else EMS and any JP post that is airmail is suspended right? Even the registered SAL that still showed Air? I went with Ferry as I this is already expensive enough and didn’t want to spend another $100 for shipping, bit it’s gonna suck waiting 2-3 months. The shipping issue info was kind of confusing, and I was just going off of what you all where saying.
