Good snag @vladykins!

You can put alongside with the 1/60 version (Yammie or Arcadia) and the eventual DX format as well. ;)

I've got the 1/60 v1 and the 1/48 urban camo and waiting on DX so I can hopefully get a 1J rerelease too.... hopefully.

Congrats! You got a great deal!

I saw that one too, but was unsure about it since the image was a stock photo. Are items on the Jungle pretty safe though? (I guess I wasn't sure about its condition).

The only time you're rolling the dice with Jungle is on their "B" grade items. Personally, it's worked out well for me so far and I've scored some good deals, with the items looking brand new. I think @jeniusand others here have run into items with discoloration, though. They're supposed to mention damage like that on the listing, but it doesn't always happen.

Yep- my total with them right now is:

HMR GBP VF-1J

2 HMR CF VF-1As

Yamato 1/48 low vis VF-1A

Bandai 1/55 VF-1S Roy/Hikaru with supers

 

Wait, so they are extending their normal 45 day time limit?

Jungle's international front page mentions that all International Shipping is suspended due to the outbreak of the virus. 

Unless you want to defy orders and pick up stuff yourself @Stranger and screw the Prime Directive. There is the possibility that you may carry the virus yourself even you don't show the systems physically. 

That's why there is so many cases being positive these past few days/weeks and the numbers are growing each day.

Their front page says that several shipping methods such as EMS have been suspended, but FedEx Priority, DHL, and Japan Post Surface are all still shipping to the US. 

And I don't see anywhere that says they are suspending their 45 day time limit. I just had an issue with them over shipping fees, and you would think that they would have mentioned waiting for EMS to open up again would be 1 solution if that was the case. In addition, when they shipped me something last week, they said I had 30 days to pay the packing/shipping fee before my time was up.

Oh, I did definitely already pay in advance for shipping. They did indicate that ordinarily they don't allow adding on to orders for combined shipping, but since the stuff is still sitting there, then they are happy to do so.

This may be a long shot, but...back in Feburary, I ordered the VF-1S 35th Anniversary Messer color version from Mandarake.  Item arrived in fine shape.  I did, however, experience what I believe to be a manufacturer packing error.  The Messer should presumably come with 2 different sets of non-articulated head lasers: 1 narrowly spaced set on a sprue (see below), and 1 widely spaced set mounted on the head in battroid mode.  Well, in my case, my VF-1S had mismatched lasers on its head. So I now have 3 narrow and 1 wide set of head lasers. 

Anybody (trustworthy) in the US in a position to do a straight trade?  The proposal:

  • I send you a "like new" set of narrow set of H-MR VF-1S head lasers from my Messer
  • you send me a "like new" set of wide H-MR VF-1S head lasers from your Messer (it's the only H-MR VF-1S I own, so I wasn't sure if the white shade is different from other S variants)

If this sounds appealing, PM me and we'll see if we can work out the details.

I don’t own a Messer, but believe the white plastic is unique to that version. Other HMR VF-1S head lasers are gray. The original Hi Metal 1S is closer, but still off white, and also sculpted differently.
 

If Bandai had decided to give us a true TV version VF-1S in HMR, that white color would have been perfect.

Is the VF-0S a model?

Thanks. It's a 3D printed armor for the Wave VF-0S kit

They look good together, but shouldn't the VF-0 be alot taller? :unknw:

Looks good.  If it were taller then it would be even more cool.

Thanks. Maybe that's why Wave labeled their kit "non-scale".

I think the HMRs come closer to 1/90 scale IIRC, so a 1/100 might shrink down like that but is still likely a bit small. I'd have to go back and run the numbers.

So, has Bandai given any hints on when the next release will be announced? Covid wouldn't make all toy companies put their plans on pause right?

I am hoping for (in this order): Q-Rau armor, Battlepod Scout, Tomahawk, Monster.

Hell - I'd throw this out there - how cool would a 1/100 SDF head/bridge be? Can recreate some nice scenes.

Was there a tease of the Q-Rau in HMR? Am thinking the scout would have more of a chance of being released first as it was just teased last year.

No tease of Q-Rau, just a lot of hopeful dreams. Scout was teased potentially with 1S re-release:

Don't forget that the N-ger/Q-rau where just filler pictures. The Phalanx and the Tomahawk where teased however Bandai decided to pull the plug in releasing it.

LMAO!!!....Bandai has made no such plug pulling....also there was a N-Ger prototype, just like the Tomahawk and Phalanx....just because they have not been released doesn't mean they won't
