Missed it dammit... I guess I'll wait for HLJ to offer it at a discount.

Are the problems with the floppiness and looseness inherent to the design or just QC failures? Trying to talk myself into a Nexx SAP set, but still having trouble justifying it even at $200 at AE.

Engineering failures....

Several problems could have easily been avoided with tabs that would actually lock in place...tabs that would swivel or slide out of sight....etc

These "failures" are most apparent in fighter mode....the battroid and gerwalk modes are actually very solid...

I agree. Mine just arrived a few minutes ago and the fit is horrible in fighter mode. I am planning to keep mine in battroid mode.

I'm hoping that the SAP will help lock the fighter mode nice and tight....a fool's hope, I know.... ^_^

Time to see for myself just how decent =/= mediocre =/= horrible Evolution Toys' VF-2SS Silvie Gena really is. I just placed an order for a copy with Nippon-Yasan. They've slashed the price from ¥20480 to ¥11980 + shipping ($139.84 shipped via SAL for me); at this price I figured it's worth it just to sate my curiosity.

Damn knew I should have waited. This doesn't look good for evolution toys. The other upcoming releases might be shelf warmers.

What would be sad/funny is if sales are so low on the Nexx and fairy squad that they end up cancelling the standalone sap pack.

They better not cancel the stand-alone SAP set. I'm hoping the addition of the SAP will help hide some of the terrible flaws and make fighter mode less of an eyesore. Have one on preorder now that I got my wish for a heavily discounted VF-2SS. :p

Yeah that price is pretty good. Makes me want to buy another. Then I remember this toy sucks.

Interesting, when the people who own one say it isn't even worth $117 that's pretty worrying.

i think 117 its a fair price for it.

$117 is a very nice price, i'm surprise it's still available at N-Y. It really makes you wonder if the standalone SAP will show up.

Anyone that brought a VF-2SS will most likely want a SAP to armor it up. So the demand for SAP will be there.

But then they have 2 products that combo with the SAP in May and June before the standalone SAP (august).

If those sales don't do well either, they might not release the standalone SAP at all, which should increase the demand for the 2 combo products,

so I take it that NY has a whole bunch of these they cant sell sitting around collecting dust and want to clear them out!? maybe if they further reduce it to under 10k yen I might just pick one up.. key word here is "might" :rolleyes:

Anti-Tempter here.

Don't, I almost bit on the 50% Hobby Search and even the N-Y price was tempting, but only on the premise of getting a premium (Yamato/Arcadia, Bandai DX Chogokin) Valkyrie at close to $ 100 retail. And it's debatable on whether or not this iteration of Evolution Toy's VF-2 fits the bill.

I also remembered my impressions of this toy, and what others have objectively stated and decided I'd rather not. :lol: / :ph34r:

-b.

Anybody actually bit on this?

How much is N-Y actually charging for shipping-fees on this with that discounted pricing?

If you try their shipping calculator it shows Y4000 to US using EMS. So I guess it's still their standard shipping pricing for Macross Valks.

I guess you didn't read the whole page. I posted the exact amount I paid to have it shipped via SAL.
