Just a slight rant about the Premium Finish plain black boxes.. Because there is no image or actual description on the box of what type of item it is, it has higher risks of customs detention where I am, which means a visit to them to explain. Or, the customs will just sloppily tear open the flaps to confirm what item is inside before letting it through.

I would rather Arcadia just use the normal non-PF boxes, with a sticker to identity it as PF..

This happen to me to when they ship PF SDF1.

Just got notice from CDJapan that the item will be charged in the next 5 days.

Is that just their standard "your credit card authorization is old and needs to be updated" email? The release date for DD is still in August.

CDJ: "This notification is sent to you to inform you in advance that the credit payment corresponding to your purchase below is about to be finalized.

When you placed this order, the issuer of your card granted us an authorization to allow us to process the credit payment for this purchase. However, as we notified you during checkout or via other means, credit card companies strictly prohibit processing of any payment more than 90 days after the store is granted this authorization. Now that this deadline is approaching, it is necessary to finalize the payment so that we are actually able to continue with your purchase.

The payment will be finalized in five days from today."

Seems like they are actually going to charge me. Might be an early charge since the figure is due in August. But who knows!

Yeah, that happens for any PO that releases more than 90 days after approval.

Hobby search re-opened pre-orders, but they were closed for a while.

It was also on the Yammie version as well.  I take it that you didn't get the Yammie release back then.

Man I was looking for this thread yesterday and could not find it!  I chalk it up to user error lol.

So just to review, am I to understand that Arcadia re-engineered the whole bird?

Don't blame you there. 

I actually starting my Macross collection in November of 2017 and emassed a wack of valks starting from Arcadia's  VF-1s DYRL Strike Roy and snowballed from there. 

I still have a large amount of Yammies  mostly in 1/48 scale and the DX is staring to take over the rest of the space. I have only four Arcadia(s) and maybe two more to come.

Already payed for mine. I've never owned the Yamato one so I'm really looking forward to adding this one to my Macross collection.

Same here. On a side note I find it slightly disappointing that some of the most interesting valks designs are the most underappreciated in the fandom because they aren't used by the MC of a series.

I agree.  The enemy Valks are just epic - The 27's were just wicked looking, The Drakken is very unique and the 51's are SO big and dramatic, especially in GERWALK.

Last off topic post- My personal favourite valk of all time is the YF-21/VF-22. The zentrandi design motifs combined with a YF-23 black widow body was just beautiful. While I know the chance is next to none, I hope bandai releases a DX VF-22 because of it's brief use in delta, like they did for the 19 in the frontier movie.

They absolutely should have done that, release the gray 22 for Delta and then get BW permission to release the 21 with the NETFC tampos and such.

That Gerwalk mode looks menacing. :wub:

I know there’s a lot of markings on those pic. But I’m just glad that this is a regular release. ;)

They're probably just using their simple display stands. It's not listed in the product page accessories list like the 1st VF-1S releases. Would be great if it was included though.

Doubt it comes with a stand. They have launch arm stands to sell!

I was in for 2 of these but I’m kinda hesitant. I’d hate for a PF version to come out after I already bought 2.

I can't really explain why but I'm kind of disappointed in how this guy turned out.

I think the visuals aren't going to give you any actual sense of what's been improved, because the shape really isn't any different.

Will probably take having one in-hand to actually get any understanding of what's changed.

Seems like CDJapan had the cheapest total price when accounting for shipping to the US. Anyone find a better deal elsewhere? Just wondering for future orders.

NY is usually the cheapest but Amazon JP has been pretty close. Actually, I went with AJ for the Proto Garland because it came out to be a couple dollars more but DHL shipping instead of SAL or Frieght.

I checked Amazon JP, unfortunately they aren't shipping the SV-51 to the US. As for NY, the shipping price actually puts it above CDJ. Thanks for the input though!
