I honestly thought they'd just recolor the max 1j box and call it a day. Glad they changed it.

Got caught in the "MyKombini went on a one week vacation" trap too. But with my war Machine mk 3 it took them a week to ship anyways, so maybe I won't even notice a difference. Still worth putting up with for only needing to do 50% deposits on web exclusives.

It's exciting to see Milia finally as a reality! I agree that the box art looks great, and am glad they are apparently including an outer box as well. I guess that's normal for web exclusives?

My Milia preorder is with NY. Not having much experience with them, do they typically give email notification when things ship?

The outer box is the mailer box, that's what it gets shipped from Bandai in. All web exclusives have those. NY should notify you when your item actually ships.

The little rectangles indented on the thighs of the defender looks like the spots for the heat sinks on the Tomahawk.  Reusing the mold I suppose.   Interchangeable parts?

Man, loving the Milia box art. I think it's my favorite to date. Very cool the way they tied it into the Max box art.

Hoping Defender p.o. is as easy as Spartan. So excited to add mechs other than VF-1 to the collection.

Those hip boxes hold small missile clusters on the Tomahawk.
They all use the same lower base torso with different hip configurations.

Those indented rectangles are in the line art as well.

And I did not even notice that they kinda mess up on the white line for regular wings on MAX's VF-1J,  It's probably because I swap out the wings before even my first transformation.

Huh, so that's what was meant when someone said they fixed the stripe that was painted wrong on Max's VF-1J. I never noticed that either and wondered what the hell the painting error could be, since I don't remember hearing anything here about it.

Don't they know I've got work tomorrow and feeling under the weather?

I might miss this one or doing the 5am hunt.

I'm sure it will be available at a few stores for regular price even after they get listed.  I just want to be able to order all of mine at the same store.

Yep.

So what are the sites with either no max or limit of at least 3?

NY and AE.  I have 4 Spartans preordered at NY.  I could even type in 99 and it would let me through the order.  Not sure on the limit at AE because I rarely buy from them but I think I originally had 3 there before I cancelled them so maybe 3 or more is their limit.

Thanks guys!  

Although I normally go with HLJ whenever possible....this is an army building item....and the 1 per customer limit just will not do!
