It got a new stand that is different from the same old fixed angle of the other DX.

Not for me. I tried transforming my three so I could take a pic on them together in each mode. Between all the bits falling off and battroid mode not holding together I gave up and put them back to fighter mode. I was very close to putting them back in their boxes and throwing them up in the attic out of sight. Stupid things.

That stand looks similar to the one the YF-30 fighter mode had when it was first shown to the public although the base was a little different. I wonder why it wasn't released to the public.

arm looks similar, base looks different, I'm wondering if that's modified from a stand that came with a large gunpla kit at one point.

Surprised nobody has mentioned this is a gift-set..........

The little tag reads: vf-171 nightmare plus EX (maruyama type)

Armored parts set

It's prolly gonna be around 20000 yen or so

..... and I'll still buy multiples >_<

Damn you bandai

That's cheeky of them, considering that it's basically the cf ap set... I'm passing on this one

Will probably pass entirely on this just because I've got enough 171s, but what's up with that Sheryl pic? It just looks... weird. :blink:

Is it weird accurate or is it weird wrong? How did the graphic look in the Anime?

Yeah, I thought the graphic on the back was a little odd, but whatever. I'm not really into these specialty jobs, and I think this mold looks much better in the dark blue.

Accuracy aside, I mean weird weird. Is that her hair hanging in her face? And.. what's "GRAVE" have to do with anything? :lol:

Maybe they are referencing gravure?

Or else since those guys were cannon fodder, it's just saying where they were heading shortly.

So will this edition explode into a million pieces like the cannon fodder version or be more like the alto version which was good?

I haven't got many vf-171 except for alto thanks to the cannon fodder not being safe to buy.

What is the chance we see a cannon fodder edition that is problem-free

The one I opened is ok so far as well, but there are definitely a few fractures directly in the plastic of the knee joints. It's that metallic junk they use, the flow lines in the plastic turn into places where it tends to just shear off.

Ugh, over the 171 too but I'm in for two just because of the Sheryl graphic on the back. Makes me think it'll be the closest I'll ever get to a formal Minmay Moon Guard VF-1S release from that other company.

Maruyama is a special character, he got Kakizaki'd. Took two episodes, but the made sure that you see him get canned in Ep. 25.
It's too fast to see the full details of the "Nose Art". But the blur looks pretty much on que with what is on the Bandai piece.

I'll get it because I like the character, but also because it's the true 171EX Cannon Fodder color, with the grey highlights.

I rewatched Frontier just a few months ago and cannot even remember that Alto's wingmen were named or had special paint jobs. Easy pass for me.

But unfortunately, every VF-171 release have been easy passes for me... Why did the CF-171 have to be so crappy? It is the only variant I want, but I just can't justify buying a toy that will likely crumble to pieces.

I actually wanted 2 of these but without the itasha on the back. I wish we had the option.
