Just sent a payment to AmiAmi for three VF-31A kits, now waiting for HLJ. B))

I had to cancel my order with HLJ, unfortunately. If they're still available in a month or so, I'll snag a third kit, but for now I'll have to be satisfied with the two I got the first time around.

And HLJ has now taken their money too, going to need more display space for these guys! B))

I somehow ordered two from HLJ. If I can cancel one without a penalty, I will. Otherwise for you Australia for, I may have a spare for sale soon. And I might even do one up for someone who's willing to pay a bit more for it.

If it's private warehouse, they accept no-penalty cancellations within a period of stocking. Contact customer service. Outside of that period it's just a restocking fee.

Just got my VF-31a payment notice from HLJ, too. Shipping should start the next days.

If it's still not paid, you can still cancel it in your account page. But if it's already paid and went to your Private Warehouse, assuming you did that, then you have 10 days to get a 100% refund. Beyond that it will deduct restocking fee and the rest will be store credit. Here's detail info from their Terms and Conditions page.

Quote
  • Private Warehouse Cancellations

Private Warehouse items can be returned as long as they have not entered shipping processing.

Returns requested within 10 days of the date the item entered payment processing are eligible for a 100% refund. Such refunds may be returned to the original payment source, or as HLJ store credit, at the preference of the customer.

Returns requested after more than 10 days have passed since the original payment date are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Such refunds can only be provided as HLJ store credit.

If a Private Warehouse item enters automatic shipping and payment is not received for the shipment, the item will be cancelled and returned to stock, and the customer will receive 85% of its cost as store credit.

Thanks Noel. My concern is due to the fact my account is set to a billing agreement. As soon as it's available, it is purchased automatically. Normally that's how I want it because I don't have to think about it and log in and pay. This time though, I completely forgot I'd already pre-ordered it in December.

 

Either way, sounds like I'm safe. This one hit my PW over the weekend. So I'm still in the 10 day window.

First three have arrived! The VF-31A is just plain awesome! Fingers crossed that Hasegawa does a Battroid kit like they did for the VF-0. B))

I know everyone's still very excited about the VF-31A, and I know the scheduled 35th Anniversary VF-31 still hasn't been released yet, but I must admit I'm growing impatient - waiting for news on subsequent VF-31 releases. Would at least like some confirmation that the VF-31F, VF-31S, and hopefully VF-31E are on the way.

Some Super VF-31s would be nice too.

Unless a member here works directly for Hasegawa and authorized to spill a bean, your guess is just as good as everyone else. ^_^

I know. I was just grumbling out loud. Since Bandai didn't complete the 5 fighter set, I'm relying on Hasegawa to do so.

Well, some folks in JP have been customising their J's for the rest of the platoon...

So it costs 800 yen more than a regular VF-31 because of the mobile game AR crossover?

No, it's 800 yen more for the oppai tax. I mean, it's kind of right there in the number. 8. 00. That's like... oppai squared.

...anyway, preorder link:

And while I'm at it, the regular Hasegawa VF-31C is still available:

Hoping this gets a pre-order on CDJapan, if not guess it's time to bite the bullet on the VFG as well.

Thanks for the heads up, @kajnrig !. Might get this one if Hasegawa includes a big water decal of Ms. Nakajima I can use to dress ELINT radar dishes like the custom Catseye @PetarB did years ago. Always liked that idea.

Just caught this courtesy of the folks who run Macross Central on Facebook. VF-31C Makina Nakajima colors.

So does this design actually appear in the Macross Delta movie?

If so, are there any others like this in the movie?

Or is this made up for the model kit line?

The design showed up (along with 4 others, apparently) in the Walkure 3rd Live "Walkure Won't Betray You" concert this past February. Seems like it's also an available skin or something in the mobile game Uta Macross. The paint scheme was designed by Hidetaka Tenjin himself (Google Translate translates his name as Takami Hidetori).

OK then I hope the other similar designs show up as kits later.
