Recommended Posts

For those who's looking and missed the reissue PO a few months ago for DX VF-25S Renewal. There's one at Jungle. Opened and classed as B for Y22680:

Adding McFly's post from Mandarake thread as well since the link is Jungle:

Went to Jungle today and they had VF-1S No Paint release (~¥11,000), VF-1D Virgin Road (~¥19,000), VF-1J Hikaru (~¥8,000)

If I had space in my luggage I would have snatched up the VF-1S No Paint.

Not sure if these are on the web site, but wanted to let MWF know in case you have a friend in Osaka who can get it for you.

I'm heading back to Tokyo for last few days of holiday. :)

i got the 1J hikaru at around 8k ish yen after the 5% charge. Question though, I know this is the faulty shoulder and rainbow canopy release, does anyone know if Jungle provide discount if they failed to disclose chips on the canopy or broken shoulder?

Im curious about that myself. Just received a 1S Strike combo. Figure looks new as it had the tape on the landing gear doors and the tips of the wings. I brought down the legs and i can see the shoulders are already cracked.

I remember someone here bought an A Ostrich V2, it has a broken shoulder as well. I think nothing happen at that time so I ended up cancelling the 8k 1J.

When my girlfriend went to Japan and found me the VF-1S+SS DYRL from Jungle she gave me a list of what else they had and some of the items weren't even listed on the website!

So im sure there is quite a bit of stuff we miss out on being outside of Japan..

I know right. ;) Would love to buy some stuff too. But after the new price revelations from my other PO's (looking at VF-0S), I decided not to. Hahaha! :lol:

I just got a VF-25G and VF-25S both graded "B" from Jungle and I was a bit hesitant at first, but couldn't beat the prices (¥24,840 for the 25G and ¥15,120 for the 25S).

Both arrived today and I couldn't be happier. Both boxes were in perfect shape, wrapped in bubble wrap, then each covered in additional heavy plastic (not cheap shrink wrap). Everything in the box was pretty much exactly if it was brand new. All inner packaging there as it should, the only real indications it was used was that the tape on the out box & around the card board top over the styrofoam were cut and a very little bit of dust on the valk itself.

I don't know if I just got lucky but I've received stuff from eBay listed as "MIB" that was not in as good of condition as these two grade "B" items thumbsup.gif

Like we said on the toy purchase thread, I also got my VF-1A Hikaru Strike Super Pack set back then which is graded A. But after I got it, it has a crack shoulder joint. But yeah Jungle prices are great. ;)

If only I have extra cash now, I will probably get some from the links I posted above. But I'm trying to save more since I do have expensive preorders up to January of next year. And I'm not looking at VF-0S, VF-2SS, Figuarts Chogokin Hulkbuster and the Hot Toys Batman Returns Batman/Keaton set. Hahaha! :lol:

Jungle is usually pretty good.. although personally I would only buy "sealed" or "A" rated items.. But if you have any concerns regarding a "B" listed item just email for more details. They usually get back pretty quick on it.

For that price im kinda tempted but something keeps stopping me getting these things..

http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=1155503

Hey Spanner. I'm curious, what's the product on this one? It already said not available. Thanks. ;)

Jungle would want to make sure this VF-4G sells before Arcadia re-issue it! LOL!

http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=1298530

In order to sell this they need to drop down the prices. Knowing that there will be a reissue. Y40000-50000 is not bad anymore. ;)

hmmm im not entirely sure now.. I think it may have been the VF-17S which I eventually bought anyways!? Though I could be wrong..

Yes absolutely! 40k would be now a good asking price. Makes me wonder what they traded or purchased it for? I'd imagine some people wanting quick cash and getting 20 to 30k for it then the stores instantly doubling their purchase price to re-sell it.

And they have a bargain priced VF-1J Max!!! Sealed condition! 45,360jpy! :o

http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=1335513

The VF-1J would have been tempting before Arcadia's 4G announcement. Now, I think I may just wait and see if there is any weight to these licensing rumors floating about the forum. If there is, then Arcadia won't be doing VF-1 Valkyries anytime soon. But if it's just speculation and rumor, then I think I remember reading that the Super 1Js were high on the to-do list.

I wouldn't want to do what I did with the 4G, and pay high aftermarket prices for the Yamato version only to have another Arcadia reissue announced four to five months later. And even if Bandai did license everything DYRL and SDFM on the toy side, I'd rather be patient and see what they bring to the table.

does anyone have exp. buying A or B grade from jungle if so what is the quality like?

Is this the same http://www.hlj.com/product/aca82018 as the one posted on http://jungle-scs.co.jp/sale_en/?page_id=121&id=1322206 ? Is it a good price asking for a A condition?

Have bought many things from Jungle.. regardless if sealed, A or B they have always been good. They tend to not sell junk so you can buy with confidence!

As for that VF-1S.. it is a little pricey for my liking but if its only got a sun damaged box then an A rating will mean its still most likely never been out of its box.

I have seen cheaper examples on the YJA in the past though..

Here is a Yamato version of the same thing with super strike parts included! You would be quite safe purchasing this one. The description lists no damage to the Valk itself, only mentions minor box scuffing.

http://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/m149181127

Auction has 2 days to go and no other bids.. Even if it bids I doubt it will end up more expensive than the Jungle item.. Definitely worth some consideration.

oh yeah and regarding this question.. yes they are the same thing.

Oh I thought the Yamato version had a shoulder issue and the canopy rainbow tint issue as well. I even thought there was a color difference ? I'll wait and see since I'm in no rush and I already have a VF-0S on preorder

Also do you think they will redo one for this year for vf-1s like they did the hikaru ichijo battle armor version?

some do and some don't. More often than not the sellers will specify if there is a shoulder cracking issue. And the similar deal with the canopy but from my experience issues are far less often.

There is a color difference between the TV and DYRL versions, TV's have a whiter white and the DYRL versions have a off white. The Arcadia releases only came in the brighter white. Good'o on the VF-0S! B))

Also do you think they will redo one for this year for vf-1s like they did the hikaru ichijo battle armor version?

Im not so sure but the word or rumor is that Arcadia has now lost the SDF-M licence (though this is still unconfirmed) but if so then no they won't be re-issuing any more VF-1 for the foreseeable future.

Thanks for the info. That definitely got me to reconsider. If arcadia lost their license how are they making the VF-0S? Also if you had a choice in buying the Arcadia VF-1S Roy Fokker or the VF-0S which one would you go and why since the price is almost the same?

They still have the MacroSS Zero license for sure, there's just a rumor they lost the SDF Macross license.
