50% off Nexx for a Black Friday deal and I'll go for it!

While I hope for Arcadia/Bandai to make a 1/60 of their own, I am not holding my breath either. B))

Even at 80%, I don't think they deserve for us to get doubles. Unless of course you meant by getting a different paint stripe variant. :lol:

Hi, I'm new to the boards but have been lurking for a short while and really appreciating all the great opinions and advice across the forums. I'm quite an avid Macross collector these days, so it's great to find a dedicated board :)

I actually picked up the Nexx VF2-SS for 19,000Y on my last trip to Japan. Having seen the CDX review of the Sylvie variant and comments on here, I kinda knew what I was letting myself into, but have to say that overall I'm kinda pleased with it. The figure could be better, but I remember that the first release of the Chogokin VF25 wasn't all that great compared to the re-edited version released later, so very few Valks are perfect.

I have mine in Battroid mode - since most of my collection ends up being posed behind glass, I'm pleased enough for now. I'd love to see the Hi-Metal series take this on, I really hope the hints I heard about on here come to fruition as the Roy Fokker VF-1 I bought earlier this year is one of my favourite Valks :)

Welcome aboard Acteon! Glad that you liked the VF-2SS in battroid mode. To be honest, that's the safest mode that you can display this Valk. And it's the best form in this toy. ;)

It is quite a sexy design, if a little out of place in the larger canon. I'll always have a soft-spot for it in my heart though, Macross II was the first Macross series I saw as a teenager. Thankfully things improved from there!

And thanks for the warm welcome!

After seeing the VF-2SS HMR, pretty sure I have no need for another ET version, they are larger yet so far the Bandai version looks sooooo much better IMO. (despite the large visible screws.)

I'm going to buy another one if it's $100 shipped. :rolleyes:

If they are a $100.00 shipped I'm in. Otherwise I'm on board with the HMR version,

If it hits that price at HLJ I'll probably buy one so I can get it shipped with my other loot. More for completion of my website purposes than anything else...

I might skip a Black Friday Sale on a VF-2SS but I'll probably jump on some discounted HMR's.

I think HLJ is aware of this, still regular price. Unless they are waiting for later.

I think HLJ is stretching out their sale...hoping the Nexx makes it to their winter list...

I hope so, while I am very intrigued by the HMR 2SS, would be cool to have ET's Silvie & Nexx Valks.

If they start giving these away, then I may consider getting a second one. As much as I love the VF-2SS design, the frustration factor with these is too high and the fun factor too low.

Gonna sit back and chill and wait for the Bandai HM-R version instead.

Nexx @ 50% off !! 16,600 yen!

http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-017372

EDIT: now closed....will it reopen??

Unless amiami had one or two left, those sold out awhile ago. HLJ is your best bet for a sale price at this point.

There is a shop in Akihabara that has dropped the Nexx to 15,000 yen. If anyone is interested in getting one PM me.

Do you know if ET considered the VF-2SS line a success? Or is their Macross II line dead? I think there was a pic showing a green striped version...thinking that may never see a release.
