Elvis Draken yes please! ^_^ 

I think that I've beaten the two of you in yesterday's post on the SV-262 to a degree. :p

 

If I do get the DX YF-19 full pack later on this year (30k yen is still a chunk of change for me as I did pay 25k yen for a valk in my collection), I'm going to take a page from @tekeringand remove most of the tampo overkill.

And then a VF-11 with the giant booster rockets.  And a Ghost. ^_^ 

Who wouldn't want a VF-11B with Boosters? :wub:

Bandai should figure out first how to put a display connector for it. Because I'm not going to buy it if this will come with a connector that looks the same as Luca's RVF-171 connectors. :rolleyes:

Random fantheory time. What if they put back the Immelman's dad thread in the new Delta movie, and use that to make a VF-22 DX?

Then Bandai should make that Elvis Draken first because that one has more screen time than the Mass Murderer's Valk. Just sayin'. :rolleyes:

My YF-19 antenna came fine, but I can understand the feeling of loosing an antenna because I lost my VF-31J's one last year ... So since I was taking measurements to make new heels and feet, I made up a replacement antenna, and uploaded a pack of 2x antennas for those who would need them.

I haven't printed them yet, but I have double checked and they should be good to print. I wouldn't place an order for just this pack alone, but if ever you have a Shapeways order running, you can add them for an additional 4 USD.

Great. Do you know how to disarm the head of the figure to make the replacement? I would hate to have the antennas but no way to replace them. Sorry for the terrible English.

If you do get the dx yf -19 later this year , it will not be 30k.  It will probably be around 35k before shipping.

Does the YF-19 have the hip-release button/switch?  Cause I can't find it.  Hips are pretty well locked in battroid.

Basically, yes.  Push down on the curved piece that is holding them in place (on the inside of the crotch area, the curved part that you rotated the hips above).

From Jenius. Just hit play. Starts at 17:56.

you can still get them from $270-300 shipped on amazon japan. Definitely avoid mandarake/jungle at that price.

No disassembly required, just pull out the antenna straight vertically, it is retained by two bumps.

On the same subject, I am trying to figure out how to disassemble the legs, feet, or ankles. At first I tried to move the ankle pin but it won’t move... then I tried to open the leg, found two screws but the rest seems glued together... damn

Awesome, I saw that in the instructions but until you mentioned it, I assumed that was molded, not a separate, spring-loaded piece.  Thanks a ton!

Awesome picture @Saburo thanks for sharing, and this is why for me and other reasons why the YF - 19 is the best Engineered Valkyrie ;) , is incredible how this stunning looking robot can transform into a stunning looking jet, not to mentioned the superb Gerwalk mode!

Got mine from HLJ, no antenna problem.  Leg vertical wings don't stay on well like other reported.  Transform was OK, since I practiced with the Advanced.  Hip ball join was scary tight.  Put some missiles on the 31s to see how they look.

Does anyone else have kind of a loose right arm?  I say kind of because when I pose mine extended out with the arm cannon attachment, the arm falls at certain angles, but holds fine at other angles. Not even sure how to describe since it's a ball, for some reason it seems to work with some manipulating but is completely limp if you don't have it at that sweet spot.

I'd blame the redesigned packaging, in part, at least as far as the broken head lasers go.

Far as this release goes.. I opened my AmiAmi copy, and have been fiddling with it a while tonight.  I still want to bash Bandai's engineers over the head with a crowbar for how stupidly convoluted their designs are.  My hip joints wouldn't move at all to start off, so I disassembled both hips entirely to loosen them up.  There have got to be at least 8 individual pieces all sandwiched together in that stupid joint, and there's actually no room to loosen the screws sufficiently, because the hip won't close.  I might have to resort to sanding/filing down the ball of the joint.

Apart from ugly tampo, fugly heel blocks, and pants-on-head engineering, I've had no issues so far at least. ^_^  The idea of filing down the heel blocks actually sounds rather appealing at this point, since it looks like it's all just a solid block of plastic.

Awesome photo! But... you forgot to pull up the gap fillers on the back of the legs! Hehe! :p :D

I have a theory on why the stablizers on the YF-19 easil pops out way easily now than when it used to be with the seemingly solid on the VF-19Adv stabs:

It's most likely some sort of payback for when they first revealed their YF-19 marketing "photos" and then quickly getting busted about it having VF-19Adv colors instead before they had a chance to photochop them.

Subtle, Bandai.  Very subtle... :diablo:

@spanner Thank you!

The gap fillers are pulled up all the way. ;)  The armor piece that goes on the back of the leg covers up most of the gap filler so makes it look its not pulled up.  :D

Haha, no worries @spanner.  You had me for a moment there, I was thinking "I know I pulled the panel up, but does it up further?" :lol:

Yes.... YES!.... YEEEESSSSS!!!

VF-11,  top and bottom mounting brackets, top and bottom-mounted boosters, a top-mounted AWACS dish, fast packs, and armored parts....  That would be perfect! 

 

Oh, season 3 of "Man in the High Castle" just premiered. YAY!  I have midterm exams to study for. BOO!

Hey all, have I mis-transformed this? I can’t get the gun pod barrel to be level with the ground, and it IS bent. Thanks!

*snip*

If the 'bent' Gunpod part is already touching the under part of the Valk, then yes, that's the correct position. It still has that 'angled down' position.

Jenius also pointed that out on his Advance review. Hit play since I marked it at that part of the video.

 

Just wanted to add also that Arcadia's YF-19 is somehow pointed a little bit downward too. So there's still consistency with our YF-19 collections. The only advantage of Arcadia is that atleast their Gunpod is not bent in Fighter mode. ;)

That's how mine turned out too. Fiddled around with it a bit but that's as good as it gets. It irks me a bit.

I was going to try mounting it with the forearm cannon present to see if it levels it out. Looks like the gun position is sideways in that configuration.

Haven't looked at my VF19 in a while but it looks like the arms are too high and not tucked into the slots for the forearm bumps in the legs. There should be no space between the arms and legs.
