How many VF-1D should I buy?

can you secure the pre-order? :p being HMR, yeah probably....but this is the 1D....our first valk experience when first watching macross!

Or to the oldies anyway..hehe...the younger folks may have put that down the the other series...pardon my age-ism...:D

Ought to be Sunday night/Monday morning in the US.

This upcoming Sunday night (2nd) or Monday early morning (3rd) depending on where your located.

Pre-orders will be up on the usual Macross Suppliers Websites at 4 pm Japan time.

Hopefully that you don't get cart jacked during the process! :p

Let's hope HLJ and Amiami's websites actually work this time.

Holy crap, this, a thousand times this! Both sites failed miserably when the VF-4 went up, hopefully the hype isn't quite as hard on the 1D. I've got several things I need to order that night as well, Figuarts Captain Marvel goes up then as well, need her and a 1D at minimum.

Yes it is for Bandai HMR.

Although, FEXT hobby with their armor sets, did beat Bandai in releasing neck seat attachments for HMR.

I had hoped that the HM-R VF-1D would have the option to detach the cockpit for the scene in episode 2 or 3 when Focker rescued them. But that might have been too much to ask for on a 1/100 scale model. 

I am still very excited about this release - bring on the HM-R Virgin Road VF-1D, Bandai!!

For sure. I'm always waiting for those Tamashii Nations pictures.

Maybe there will be a few other surprises once they post the full set.

Anyone else notice how one picture has the (correct) one shoulder light in battroid, and the other has two shoulder lights in battroid?  Bandai loves their photoshop.

Or maybe the pictures are from different stages of development.

In that first battroid photo, I think it's just the angle that makes it look missing. The other light is just barely peeking out from behind the head.

Yeah, I think you're right.  And going back and looking at the line art, I think it is supposed to have both shoulder lights.

Whoops almost spaced on the PO.

Seems like a strange day for preorder. Isn’t it typically on a Wednesday or Thursday?

I kinda thought it was Wednesday or Friday night for most of us.  A Monday (Japan time) release is unusual.

I just saw the pre-order is 11pm my time.   I won't be getting home until 11:10pm.  I wonder if I can pull my car over to the side of the road and order with my phone.   I might miss this one.

Phone ordering has been pretty good to me and I think @sh9000 mentioned he always uses his phone. 

Good luck tonight everyone!
