Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


Recommended Posts

Thx for heads up guys.  Ordered the last strike set on eBay (for now) for 117 shipped.  Like the post prior at 500 plus for “complete” setup it’s quite xpensive . Maybe the Hikaru one will just have to suffice.

Are they reopening pos for just the strike pack or the valk itself?

If they do , it will just be for the strike packs because it’s twe p-Bandai and they do 2nd batches here and there .

 

The valk was a standard release, so it will be a no for now .

I am pretty sure the Japanese domestic collectors will be complaining so Bandai will pacify them and come up with a round 2 PO. We should see it open again by mid June,

I wouldn't be surprised if they wait till later on in the year so that people who manage to get a VF-1S in the store will be able to order their strike packs after they've locked down the Valk

The UN Spacy on the gunpod is upside down. :rolleyes:

You can't have it the correct way in all 3 modes. Hasegawa makes a compromise by having one side for each mode.

Isn’t it the gun pod itself that is upside down ?   Attachment point should be on top just like the missiles.

Missiles came in yesterday:

A decent little set. Still a bit salty at the fact they aren't being included with the upcoming VF-1S. Ended up late to the party on this TWE set. A work of caution on the hard-points for the individually-mounted reaction missiles. Once they're fully installed into the missile, the task of prying them apart is going to be somewhere between obnoxious and impossible. Personally, I'm not sure if I care all that much; they basically function as a single piece anyway. But if you think you'll ever want to separate those missiles from their hard-points, I'd recommend either not pushing them together all the way or lightly sanding the connection point.

Nippon Yasan is now showing the Super / Strike Parts as sold out. 

From this we can conclude that they do not have 1500 strike parts to begin with, as the preorder is closed once it's sold out at Bandai website.

Question is whether N-Y ordered in bulk from Bandai. If not, everyone who ordered from them (after Bandai sold out) is screwed. Myself included.

Haha, I was talking crap like I had months before I needed to buy the Strike/Super Parts. No worries, they (Bandai) already announced there would be another batch so I think it won’t be a problem and they will be available again but will see on the price. Either way, I’ll buy it faster next time, lol.

I ordered my pile of Super/Strike Parts from NY in the first 24 hours NY had them posted so I am hoping that wasn't a mistake. I don't think they were even up on the Tamashii site for sale yet. Worst case I suppose they will get them to me by the time the rest of the DYRL Valks are released :P

Since when has N-Y been unable to fulfill an order? Even though the 31A took a long time, they still managed to do it while other stores either weren't or only accepted a much smaller number of orders.

Same. Waiting for more confirmation for how long it will be after the first wave of shipping. If only the valks themselves sold out this “slowly”.

I went with Anime Export this time for the Packs, hope they deliver.

I did the same for 3 sets the first hour a link came to MW. I dont want to have to many orders to NY as I understand they "wait" until all orders are gathered up to ship. Which would mean wait for Arad armor. VF-1A, then the missiles. 

 

Besides I havent ordered from AE so I thought now is a good time to give them a go

We know that a few members have responded that they will making another batch of the Strike/Super parts available however but does anyone know if they mentioned anything about a reprint of the VF1 missiles?  I'm sure we'll hear something eventually, just curious if it was mentioned at the same time with the Strike/Super parts or not.

On another note, any recommendations on a good stand/base for these?  Saw that the yetistands look decent and was looking at other options too, thanks.

Same here, looking for a stand that would display it nicely in fighter mode thats not too obtrusive.

I like the flightpose stands for a non-obstructive display in fighter mode.

I like that they don't require display stand adapters (though that means they're a little less secure). I would recommend putting  a piece of scotch tape (sticky side toward the display stand) on top of each nub to prevent reaction of the stand with any material it would touch, some people had the stands fuse with the paint on their toy or leave a ring of discoloration.

Official Tamashii page for the strike parts is up:

https://tamashii.jp/item/12988/?#pagetop

Basically no new information.  Guess we'll just have to wait and see.  I think it is a reasonable assumption that there is at least engine detail in the FAST PACK.  Probably missile boom detail.  Maybe leg engine detail.  And the emblems are swap out plastic parts.  But why wouldn't they make that clear?  Why leave it up to speculation?

Certainly no shortage of painted on markings! That's a lot...

Curious about details. It seems 99% certain they have removable exteriors but I wonder why Bandai isn't selling that?

Wow $135.48 shipped at nin-nin for strike/supers. Yeah I’ll wait

Yeah, I'd just wait for info on the next batch. It might be more expensive but probably not that level of expensive. Either way, I'm still not worried about it...yet, lol.

Any where to get the strike parts? Or at least a release day 

I say wait until the release day and then nab a set. Save your funds and keep it aside for that purpose.
