The reviewer stated the VF can stand without issues with the whole pack on. You can see it standing without issues on the turn table.

It's not just standing, it's actually fairly difficult to knock over (well, as far as transforming valkyries go).

That surprisingly looks solid despite all that added bulk. Wow!

I got lucky and happened across an Amazonjp seller fulfilled by Amazon who ships to the US.  I can slap the second one (if it shows up) on Chuck's 31.

I’m really digging the armor in battroid. Unfortunately it’s prob going to be relegated to closet duty unless I can find the boxes to some of my other valks and put them away.

Why am I getting paranoid flashbacks to NY's handling of the 31A?

Scratch that.  The minute after I wrote my previous comment, I just got an email from NY saying my order is being processed.

Looks like another Silpheed Armour has been picked up on Manda for the same price that I got for (18K yen) and it's from the Complex branch.

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1118889238&ref=list&dispCount=240&keyword=%E3%83%9E%E3%82%AF%E3%83%AD%E3%82%B9&lang=en

I believe that 18k yen will be the asking price for it when stocking it in other branches.

And how long will this preparation take?  My two Figuarts Yoda and Iron Man figures have been hanging out in prep for three days now.

Also preparation in progress from NY on the armor parts. Seems like they just sent out a mass notice to everyone that pre-ordered there, so I dunno how helpful that is.

Kind of disappointed it's not a shipping notification at this point.

Same! Super excited to add this to the Arad. I wonder if there's anybody out there that has three of them that's going to display them in each mode?

After being unavailable in NY, the armor is back up with the usual mark-up: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/27647-macross-delta-armored-parts-set-for-dx-chogokin-vf-31s-siegfried-arad-molders-custom-limited-edition.html

I was getting worried that NY might not get enough stock for everyone who ordered, but now that its back on stock and us getting the preparation in progress emails, I'm reasonably confident that I'll have my armors soon. :)

Also, now that I've seen the armors on Chuck's 31, it's apparent that they're a different shade of orange. Still miffed that they went with orange for Arad's armor pack though. :5:

Could be a couple days, could be a week or more.

Just in case NY has any problems fulfilling my pre-order, I decided to order a second set of Armored Parts from Amazon just a few minutes ago

With Amazon Global Shipping (aka, DHL) today's order turned out to be 1310 yen cheaper than my NY pre-order with EMS shipping.  *sigh*

YAY!  60 hours after placing my order, it arrived at my door.  I wuv AmazonJP and DHL.  :give_rose:

My copy got delivered to my house while I was on the way to work (saw my email notices of delivery). 

Now is the question if I got nabbed by CBSA (Canada Boarder Services Association) for a 18k yen, 2 kg box of Silpheed Parts.

It looks good on Chuck, and I have to say Ozma still is the king of armoured VFs. I think with the OTT weapons, the valk lost some its shape, unlike the 25S, which managed to retain a bit of that triangular look, making it more aggressive to me. This just seems to be a block of parts with an aircraft nose pointing out. 

That said, it’s still nice but not as fantastic as the 25.

Yup i agree ozma's armor is da boss. Very complementary design aesthetics to bring bulk to a sleek VF-25 valkyrie.

I have combined shipping from NY with Riobot Yellow, so no idea when that figure is released so might be a bit of a wait for me. But cant wait for it.

IIRC Yellow was pushed to October.

With armor, it can still stand on the legs if the ground is not too slippery.  The elbows can hold the weights only at certain angles.  The add-on clip on the back don't seems to be useful - it will just fly off if the big cannon's weight applies on it.

Haven't try to transform it yet.

@CF18Hold up... is that a picture of your collection... AT  WORK? I think I know who's desk I'm going to raid on my last day before I quit or get laid off!

 

What kind of stand are you using to prop up your VF-31E and J in that picture?

Yes, at work.

 

Stand came from the gray market thread:
