That’s a shame.  The 19F looks great on the shelf and it’s a real draw when people look at the collection.

Don't worry I'm a 19 fan, too right! i have the Arcadia version. I just don't like the style of the valks in mac 7 for some reason. Maybe they are a little "too" cartoony for my liking.  It's the only series i can't appreciate fully compared to everything else. But i respect it enough to give it a watch ^_^

Outside of the super robot main cast, of which they only made one and I didn’t buy it, the rest of the Valks in 7 look great to me.

No, the 19F.  Navy Blue with white stripes.

See. :rolleyes: It just proves how I'm not familiar with Mac7. :ph34r:

I may let one of my VF-31A go when we receive them.

Especially interested in  exchange for a VF-31J Kai   if any one is interested.....hahaha

I was actually thinking of trading my Kai but I’m not sure if I want the 31A or the 31S. Can’t believe I missed the pre order madness although from the looks of things seems it wasn’t too chaotic....

I thought the PO was today, silly me. The PO madness didn't seem that from last night didn't seem that bad either.

Looks like Nin-Nin-Game still does PO, but it sounds like a place I should stay away from. Any chance some major retailers would take in orders again later?

Keep an eye on HLJ for other people cancelling their orders.

I run Chrome with Distil web monitor plugin. Managed to snag quite a few things that way, still waiting for the ping that lets me know a Laevatein's available.

I have the 2014 MB Laevatein if you are interested.

I will try the plugin. Thanks again!

Good luck with it.

I'm going to hold out on trying to get the new Laevatein, supposedly it's got a few updates.

Looking back through the FMP thread, there seem to be three specific changes to the new MB Laevatein:

- added shoulder swivel
- new articulated storage compartment in chest for hand grenades
- extra joint arm for the demolition gun

I wish I didn't miss out on the new Laevatein, I wanted to get it for the new features and the fact I only got one of the first release.

LOL, sorry I got confused. I was just reading and had a thought. I genuinely thought I was in the correct thread.

I guess I used the quick jump to the last unread post and just posted.

I do feel that you do have a better chances when 31S is released. With a higher SRP, I felt that it is the easiest to pre-order among the 31. Plus, other shop was able to get plenty in-store stocks of the previous releases.

 

The Kai though, hopefully you can snag one at Mandarake or other store.

Yeah i’m Super bummed about the kai. I haven’t missed a Bandai release since the renewal vf-25f. If I don’t get one and can’t complete my collection I think it will give me impetus to bow out of this hobby. I’m tired of how hard they make it to obtain this’ll stuff.

I don't have a Kai, but I will definitely relieve you of a 31A should you decide to sell one. I only ordered one. Need 2

I missed this one, dam. But I had no problems in the past getting them close to release so I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

Should be relatively easy to pick one up at release at list price or at a slight markup. The longer you wait the higher the price will go.

Unless it’s as unpopular as the 31C which was widely available for weeks at a discount. I don’t think that will be the case though.

I'm thinking i'll wait till the release then i'm sure they will go down in price...eventually. I think the 31a is probably the most exciting design i've seen since the ozma 29. True, the vf-0s and sv-51 are on the horizon along with the 31s.
