That's a screenshot from the trailer. The packs over the shoulders; does that look like the wing packs to anyone else? At first I thought maybe it was the rear pack folded into halves, but now I think its the rear wings up horizontally somehow? 

Just the packs firing forward. He starts to fold the pod before firing.

Legs pieces of the armor is almost the VF-25 Armor with a couple of modifications, the most interesting parts are the weapon coming off the left arm and the apparent missile packs coming off the wings!

The additional armor on the wings/pods looks like the (arm) missile pod on the vf-171

Sorry a bit off topic.

Do you pay any tax or fees in the US for importing stuff like this from Japan?

Well.... depends on the item.  But for toys there is no duty from Japan to the US.

Was there any hint that the blue on the 31J Kai have a different tint compared to the original 31J?

In the video posted, the reviewer said that the blue tint on the 31 kai has a darker shade of blue than the 31 J and the lines are sharper and crisp. Thats why i suspect that the 31J super packs were probably molded in the same shade of blue as the 31J

I'll see for myself when mine arrives, but never underestimate the human brain's ability to fool you by screwing with your perception based on surrounding visual cues. 

I posted this awhile back, but it doesn't hurt to post again. Note that squares A and B are the exact same shade of grey and its your brain screwing with you.

Ordered the Kai from NY. Not too happy with the price, but then again, that's how this game is played. :rolleyes:

From the last page, here they are next to each other. Maybe the black gives the illusion of it being darker (like Lolicon's example)?

Really? That's so high. I just bought one. Y7000+ yen if the weight is 4kg. And I can't remember FromJapan charge me more before with EMS. And the 'Charge 2' invoice I'm referring to is the shipping fee and other fees. 'Charge 1' is the payment for the actual item.

My EMS charge for two at FJ was 14,488, though the weight was higher since I added in two books

Wow! Really? How come they charge twice the shipping cost for each one now? :blink: 

Question. Is that the actual EMS cost only as per weight? Or FJ's fees and local delivery included? Give or take one shipped DX VF-31 using EMS is just Y4500-5200 as per JapanPost price for 2-2.5kg. I find it weird for FJ's to charge that much for EMS since they don't charge me that much before.

 

Oh well, there's nothing I can do right now. I'll just wait their Charge 2 invoice first before I raise my eyebrow. <_<
