Hell yeah, NIN will always be nine inch nails!

I absolutely love this monster. I have the yammie one, but there is absolutely no competition!

Hell yeah.

Yes, the VF-1's are like mini Yamato's, and the destroids and enemy mecha are the best of this line so far.

yup, it's all your fault.  :p.......   not entirely but reasonable enough. :p

For me paypal is easier and have less issues for instock items.  

direct with creditcard made me lose a nice priced preorder from N-Y.,, They said it was declined and just cancelled my order.    And of course they relisted later for higher price. :angry:

I see. Will be careful in future for anything critical.

AmiAmi updated the invoice and I have paid. Hope they will ship out soon.

Whew, HLJ is out. I am lucky to have this one. Missed the AJ deal, but AmiAmi is not bad.

Good news.  Looks like you will now be making room for a HMR VF-4 to add to your collection.  :good:

You meant "30 minutes in", right? 

Yes you are correct. As you can see from my cAPs, i was forwarding the video and rushing off when i was replying...

The color scheme looks evenly colored so far!

Well, 30 seconds is about all I could take.  There's nothing more annoying than watching disingenuous young actors pretending to be excited about something...

...and yet, 90% of Japanese TV is exactly that.  <_<

Thats ye old "look at this sweet and sparkly new item release that got me so excited that i am giggling and saying sugoi lots!"

trick from the product launch book...:D

No seated minmay... if you don’t mind put the super O’s minmay in the seat instead :rolleyes:

Yeah , but you know, a sitting-crying Minmei should have been included. Not gonna complain though, they are giving us "telescopic" seats. Ha one more seat to have Minmei sitting, now that i think about it. It would be cool if they gave us standing or kneeing Hikarus too.

From the photos I’m seeing so far, it appears that the orange parts on the VF-1D (chest, legs, and maybe head) are actually molded plastic instead of paint, so I’d bet they look better than the VT-1.

I’m looking forward to recreating the TV version of this pair:

I just finished purchasing 10 Macross Hi-Metal R VF-1D valkyries to keep for a while.  I was hoping they would come out with this in 1/55 but you gotta love the Hi-Metal R line.  Easy to transform, good details, nice size.

So far one has shipped, my Amazon order of 4 which was a GREAT deal thanks to the poster is being processed.  Pretty good stuff.

Thanks for posting all of the great pics so far including the Battroid pic with a nice pose and composition.

I wonder how good it would look like if the shot below was recreated?

I plan on recreating this pic among many others.

VF-1D is looking good!  I have mine ready to ship from Anime Export, but I'm waiting on the DX Chogokin VF-1 Missile Set coming out next month and will ship them together.

I already email them, but does anyone know how long Anime Export will hold items?

It’s been a while so I’ve forgotten which HM or HMR VF-1 can have the fuselage to easily detach.  It would be nice if the VF-1D can do it but if it can’t then I’ll still do it with one of my spares.

Bandai got the color mix right this time with the vf-1D...seems more saturated

Very nice and thanks for the side-by-side comparisons!  

Not nit-picking but it still looks as though the backpack's shade of orange is a tad brighter than the rest of the body on the 1D, not sure if it's just the lighting.  And not sure which is canon - but only the centre part of the back cover was painted orange in Yamato's 1D, not the whole piece.  I just checked my Super O and the back cover was painted in two colours - why the step back, Bandai?

As far as I know AE will hold items indefinitely. I’ve had items there for well over a year before I shipped and they all arrived in perfect condition when I eventually got them.

Hikaru looks great in his jumpsuit, even at this scale! I am so pumped, I am watching ep2, countdown right now...

And to think i was going to pass on this. In fact, I got the Superostrich because was exited about this... and it was a good price.

I would love to see a good profile comparison of the nose between the standard single seat and this 2 seater. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like they pulled a Yamato on us and just moved the rollbar slightly forward and made it vertical.
