Arcadia 1/60 Super VF-1J Max & Millia Release

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Oh, I mean general customs , as when you ship something to Chile. That's why I ship to US hotels, that way when I  pick them up I conceal the box and contents in my luggage so when I go through customs on my way back in, they don't see what I'm carrying. Crew members aren't permitted  to import goods but you get good after years of practice ;)

In 2018 I finally got all of the 1/60 VF-1s I've always wanted, most importantly it was Max and Milia.

Depends on the rosters I get. But about once every other month. Always have my figures sent to hotels in the US. Customs back home always opens everything to see how much they can charge you. Thats  how another member ended up missing his VF-1S' gunpod....

So if you're caught, do you get tossed into a Chilean forced labor camp?

Didn't Han end up having to jettison at least one of his cargo shipments to avoid the authorities? :rolleyes:

I'm gonna be waiting by Pudahuel just in case PullToEject needs to toss some Arcadia or DX Chogokin out of the window ;-)

I’ll pay him to smuggle my Macross items. He has hidden compartments in his suit case like the millennium falcon

You notice any issues with stress marks on the hardpoints?

Thankfully, no.

I just opened, transformed back and forth and looked over my Arcadia Max 1J and it is perfection. No flaws or issues like some people have reported. All the joints are perfect, no stress marks and parts all attach and detach as they should. Only thing I can think about complaining about is the left landing gear doors don't line up as perfectly as the right side but it's so minor. I'm friggin so happy to finally have the M&M pair in this line.:D:D:D

Not M&M’s®️ anymore. Based on your pic, it’s 3M®️. ^_^

No worries. I know it is, sir. I just used those registered brand names (®) for word play. ^_^

Finally got Max out his box and reunited with Milia.

I inspected the Max and didn’t notice any stress marks.

My Max also seems to be issue free, unlike Milia who's hip bar wouldn't stay in battroid.

My max had two very standard things brake almost out of the box. I’m not super picky but Arcadia definitely surprised me this time. I guess I should expect it, but I didn’t . The missile peg and the cover for the leg landing gear

I think my post office might have lost my Max. Went to pick up and they couldn't find it. Put down my phone number so that they can ask the carrier who is on vacation. :(

Looks like your Carrier got himself a new max and is on vacation enjoying it! Lol

You mean Mirage looks "really red" hot, yes I agree! :lol:

The color Bandai used for the VF-31C is a bit tricky to film without natural light IMO, it can appear darker at times. B))

Things have been so busy for me lately, but I had some free time to spend with Max.
