Looks like the Hasegawa VF-31a is being re-released. Reservations are available on Hobby Search! I'm not letting this this one slip away again.

Phew, glad I signed up for notification. I was going to bite the bullet and buy from an ebay scalper.

Debating whether I should opt in for a third kit... Ooooooh, Hasegawa, why you gotta do this to me? :D

EDIT:

I don't see it up at HLJ or Amiami, or on the Hasegawa site. Can anyone confirm if this is an actual second production run or just HS finding more stock?

HS usually seems to have restock notifications out faster than hlj...

for example PLATZ is re-isuing their entire resin 1/72 yukikaze line, and HS had pre-orders for all of it, hlj just has the Mave...

$.02 for what it's worth.

 

I got 4 VF-31As from the first run, so I'm good.

Ah, I see. I sent HLJ an email earlier. Hopefully they'll get back to me by start of next week.

they did Hayate's D05, Mirage's D04, Chuck's is D03... I see a pattern that the boxart also alludes to... and since Japanese is read right-to-left...

 

so yea, my hopes are up as well.

 

Think they'll actually give us an option to deploy the sensor-dish? or cop-out on us and just provide it folded-and-Stowed?

Just got word from HLJ that they will be opening up orders again for the 1/72 VF-31A. No specific date other than shortly, so keep your eyes open for it!

Is that how this tends to work at HLJ for re-releases?

Yes, they change the product flag from 'discontinued' to 'backordered', not to a 'future release' status. It's been working that way for the recent Hasegawa re-releases, not sure in the past though.

If you mean do they rely on customer inquiry to open up reorders, I'm sure they have their own way of getting notified of relevant re-releases. I think maybe we're just a bit quicker on the trigger, being stupid-obsessed fans and all, and we spam them with questions about things they were going to get to anyway. :D

Cool, because the VF-1D Gerwalk kit also reappeared in this state, since I heard elsewhere that it was being renewed. I placed a backorder for that one.

Good move !. Hasegawa announced this one also to be out on February 8th, 2018. I've set alerts for periodically checking Hasegawa's new product info pages, so I can get finantially ready ahead of time ;)

Ordered a VF-31A too... great plane!

Sadly wasn't able to order the last time it was available, not going to happen this time. Muhahahaha!

Couldn't help it, I decided to pre-order 3 more VF-31A kits... this time with AmiAmi. B))

I'd slightly lose my mind if Hasegawa did a 1/72 Battroid kit like they did for the VF-0's.

Hasegawa needs to get off their butts and get a VF-19F/S out, then a Battroid of the 19 [any one of them, I don't particularly care which], THEN they can Battroid the VF-31

If Hasegawa did a YF-19/VF-19 Battroid kit, I'm all on board! B))

Then a VF-31.

Oh cool, I thought only Bandai was coming out with an anniversary -31. I'm glad I didn't bother forking out for that version.
