Huh. I am assuming that the UN SPACY markings in those photos are stickers, then? And no red stripes on the head lasers is still disappointing...

Why would you get a payment request now when they're not due out till the 25th?

NY sends out payment requests about two weeks before they are in stock. I have received my payment request as well.

It is unfortunate, but I am sure they just don't want to be responsible for anything at a certain point. As long as you know how to use an xacto, or hobby knife, you should be fine.

yeah it is a bit silly but I wanted 4 for myself, one for each mode clean and 1 to dress up in Reactive Armor parts. The 5th was going to be for my son but he has changed his mind in favor of something else not Macross related. Might just stick to the original 2 that I have already paid for..

Thinking about 5 VF-0S's you some kind of Valkyrie hoarder? :lol: I am kidding. ;)

hehe! technically it would be 4 but yeah its kinda bordering on hoarding eh! You know who is a hoarder!?!? Kicker!

if you end up w all 5x and transformation is checked, we'll know if mr. K fixed the ball joint for sure=D

The more you buy the more likely you'll get one with an issue! or as much as I figure so..

hmm... The pics on Hobby Gen show the UN Spacy tampos. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10344021

Wouldnt trust those old pics so much as they were there for advertisements...the red stripes were also missing but from Mr K's latest tweet all of them have it on. I do not assume arcadia will waste time and effort modifying the 0a sticker sheet just for the 0s.

If they were all assembled without the UN SPACY on the legs I doubt they'll tampo it. Besides, you will either have it with the leg pack attachment or the reactive armor on all the time. Arcadia knows this so giving they're cutting costs, why tampo something that will be covered all the time.

But still, it's a 300 dollar toy. I want my damn tampo!

Also, I guess I was of the lucky few, so far my 0D and 0A right leg stay in place after transforming, pulling and handling.

agree with your points except the sticker sheet.

the stickersheet is not a indicator whether something is tampo'd or not. all the past stickersheets had un spacy decals along with other decals that were tampo'd on. so that wouldn't be modified regardless if arcadia decided to add tampos.

(though the point is correct there aren't u.n. spacy tampos but there are red stripes around the head lasers)

Leaving the UN Spacy off would make sense if the sticker sheet was like the 0D and included UN Navy and UN Marines stickers, however doing it on the 0A and now the 0S is useless if there's no way for additional customization.

yeah lag packs will cover it most of the time but it'd still better if it were there.

But the leg packs should also have the U.N.SPACY printed on them. I don't get why they omit the printings. Maybe they looked at the M³ picture when deciding which printings to include and which not.

Aawww. No 3 modes for you this time, Spanner? ;)

But glad to hear that NY is accomodating for your cancellation. Guess, you spend too much on them before so you're on their 'A-list'. ^_^

hehe! yeah no 3 modes for me this time.. never say never I guess as who knows maybe down the track I'll pick up another. Im still deciding what to do with the RA parts and if I do buy them I'll need another.

NY have been pretty good to me. Well I have spent a small fortune with them! :rolleyes:

Don't you have a few 0a's? I'm going to milk three modes out of my 0D, 0A and two 0s's.

I currently have 2x 0A and 3x 0D with one in each mode. When the 0S arrive I think that will be enough for now. Or at least till after xmas and car registration..

Since you're just getting two, is that one for you, and one for your son? You can get the RA for your Valk unless you want to display it individually. ;)

both these two are for myself. My son just doesn't seem to be very much interested in anything from Yamato / Arcadia. He's pretty much a Bandai fan boy!

I'll probably pick up a 3rd 0S a little down the track for the RA parts..

Either way glad you'll be able to enjoy the 0S :) probably will skip this release as I double-dipped on a Metal Build Strike Freedom instead. Too many horror stories about the legs!

Likely arcadia had the red lasers stripes all along, but didnt have time to put them on in the beginning.

Or this is their way of giving us a nice ..*surprise*.. ;)

I could be wrong, but i think the days of sticker sheets with duplicate tampo are going to be a rarity.

Unfortunately every penny counts in build, and i thk they would have run down on redundancies to keep their margins.

But back to the 0S... the 0s being similar to the 0a, arcadia doing a tampo with a UNSpacy sticker sheet i thk would be a stretch.

If they do, i would more be elated, however realistically speaking..... <_<

Though now am wondering if the R Armor would have any tampo's or sticker sheets..... :rolleyes:
