:bump:

Honestly, the one on the left looks just as good! 

Having said that, anywhere still have one for sale? For those that got one from online retailers does anyone know where I can one shipped with the brown box carton?

 

Spotted a couple at yahoo auctions. Have one finger on the trigger. lol

"Brown box carton"?

Online shops do that thing?

I posted in the other thread that you'll now need to buy two Roy Premiums to get the tampo'ed Black heatshield and FP if you'd bought the Hikaru-Premium...  :bump:

i was going to say also to throw on roy's strike packs to match the black shield colors.

Rakuten is a reliable site too. I bought my DX VF-31F there before. Good luck on the hunt.

Apparently, they can smell our fears. When I was saving before, it happened to me on a product on NY.

I decided to transform my Hikaru VF-1S the other day.  I was folding out the hands and the whole right hand mount just came apart.  I'm not talking about it slipping out of it's peg.  The rotating part the hand plugs into and mounts in the arm came apart.  It looks like it wasn't glued together well.

The fix itself looks pretty easy.  The complicated part will be getting the piece re-glued together back on it's transformation rotation pegs without inadvertently making it fixed position.  Still, pretty irritating.

Added to my new display shelf

I will say, this one is the most finicky out of all the V2 1/60s I have so far. Still a great toy with no defects, just not as tight and solid feeling all around like my other ones.

Haha, that bad? Using the crappy camera and no lighting at work means I mess around with PS settings more. In this case, I liked the look of blending the Valk into the white background. Sorry if it offends you. :D

So, you're going to the trouble of bringing your toys into the workplace (despite the lack of adequate light), just to take pictures with the crappy camera?

Are they paying you to photograph your toys, or are you just neglecting your duties?  :huh:

Geez, I wish I had your job!  :lol:

No, it's all the redundant cross-posting that offends me.  :p

 

And your work ethic.  ;)

Uh, sorry I guess. 

I’m bringing toys to my office because I have no space at home and I found a bunch of free shelves in the alley. The photos took less than 10 mins., I was on a break and it’s the day before a holiday so it wasn’t exactly busy. 

I’m gonna post in any thread that is applicable since well, they are applicable. 

So sorry!

The Hikaru strike valk is a great piece, but whoa that's white! It's like watching an albino fighting a yeti. In a snowstorm. :)

is it the standard or PF VF-1S? the 2 1/60s I've bought so for are both PF, and I love them so much I want to continue PF for everything.

 

I don't have a non-PF to compare them with...

Mine is the standard version. It’s hard to argue against loving the PF versions...they look great, I just don’t care about having all the little details enough to pay the premium.

Thanks! I was beginning to think no one here has seen anything other than standard lighting photos before.
