What are the chances that we can mix and match both Super and Armored Packs for the Siegfrieds like on the Messiahs?

 

Well the 31 armor pack already provides the firepower the 25 armored/tornado hybrid was supposed to do. But you should be able to mix the parts since they hook onto the same slots.

first thing to do...replace the battery charger and gunpod mounts with the armored!

next attach gatling guns under wings.

While i was taking photos, I noticed that on bicep swivel joint has a bit of "play" where it moves back and forth slightly on the J, F and C.  The S and E do not have the "play".  Do any fellow members notice this on their Valks?

I can confirm for my J (non Kai) but the others are still in their boxes... XD.

I got my notification for shipping for the VF-31S armor from Big in Japan. I had to pay an additional 3100 yen because the shipping estimate was not enough (5200 spent originally).  That brought the total to 8300 yen for shipping. That seems excessive to me and just wanted to see if anyone else had a similar situation or are all the companies doing this and the box is just huge.

Picked my copies up today. It’s a lot of parts and I’ll finish armouring up my valk when I get home later. There’s a few pieces that could easily get lost when opening the package so be aware. Those are pieces that tab onto the ends of the wing parts.

Dangit. Still waiting on Anime-export to inform me of the arrival of my armored parts :0

Wasn't a fan of Mac Delta and I only have 1 VF-31 left, but dammit I have a weakness for THICC valks :0

Finally put all the pieces together. Missing the tiny ones I mentioned earlier, but otherwise it’s done. Such a fat valk!

Same boat... It's like Yamato 1/48 shipping prices which seems a bit crazy but what can you do.

It seems slightly high, I had to pay around 10,500 yen for shipping 3x of them. FedEx Intl. economy to California. EMS was slightly higher, by like 400yen, and then FedEx Intl. Priority another few hundred yen above that.

Thank you @PsYcHoDyNaMiX and @Guyffon.  Looks like the earlier released 31s (J, F and C) had the wiggly left bicep, the later releases (J Kai, S and E) got a fix.

Wow. That shipping cost is as half as the actual item cost. Or more? Anyways, is that shipped to the US?

@ErikElvis and @mechaninac I got an email from NY a few weeks ago. I am pretty sure they are adding a week to the release date of the 16th to allow their shipments to arrive. I have seen them do this with past web releases. I just hope it’s not like the 31A incident.

" We are contacting today regarding this product : Macross Delta - Armored Parts Set for DX Chogokin VF-31S Siegfried (Arad Molders Custom) - Limited Edition

We've just got the confirmation that the release date for this product was changed.

 

Initially the release date was on : 2019-08-31

The new release date is now on : 2019-08-23

 

If your order isn't paid yet you will receive the deadline notification close to the release.

 

Kind Regard

Not worried at all about NY delivering the Armor Parts. They still have preorders open at original price which means they must be confident about their stock.

N-Y is probably just taking their time calculating how much more they’ll charge for shipping on top of what was already paid.

if it's one it seems really strange, since you are also in the states. , you might want to email them to confirm.

Haha, I was just stating my thoughts on the matter. But I guess this is something to be worried about:
