The video plays fine in Australia, maybe HG blocked it due to the music

Doesn’t work in Canada either...time to fire up the VPN.

Btw I’m tempted To buy a YF-19 Full Set and was wondering if some of the missiles will fit the VF-1?  Anyone know?

Another review. It seems the legs still get detached while handling the VF.

 

Great, now I’ve got “Mah-ku-ross” repeating over and over and over in my head...ahhhh

Anyone know what the complaints are on the amazon japan low star reviews?

Looks like the reviewer's copy has the wrong side hinge. Now I have to check my 1J when I get home because the shoulder on it doesn't move all the way forward properly. 

Looks like Arcadia isn't the only one using the incorrect side joints.

I don't see anymore AJ sellers willing to ship to US. Any other place to get this cheaper than $270?

I still see a few ... look at:

eおもちゃやさん - 23,790 JPY ... just checked and that one let me go right to the last page of checkout without any issue (shipping to Canada).

News to me. Can you tell me what I’m looking at/what it’s supposed to look like?

Reviewer says Bandai screwed up the shoulders.

Here's the correct shoulders.

So you could get two right shoulder joints.  Or more precisely, an inverted right shoulder joint install as the left shoulder joint.  Bandai and Arcadia probably need to step up their assembly plant QC a bit more.

Thanks! That was a few pages down. It said shipping not available, but it went straight to the checkout page.

Woohoo, tracking shows my Max is in Toronto already...wasn’t expecting it to get here quite that quickly.  Thumbs up for Anime Export.  Now it will take Canada Post 3 days to deliver it 30km... :D

Hi, if anyone is still looking to pick one up try these two sellers on Amazon Japan.

Tried cart out to but they didn't allow shipping overseas so that's a fail for me.

That’s proof that Bandai and Arcadia use the same factory!

OMG what if they're secretly the same company? Even the name is suspicious! If you take ARCADIA and replace the A with a B, drop the R, change the C to an N, and rearrange the letters, and you get BANDAI! 

Obviously, the dropped R was reassigned to the Hi Metal name giving us Hi Metal R! 

The clues were there all along.

I'm wondering do you think Bandai will realase a GBP armour set for the 1J? 

Yes, there was promotional art (schematics) after the launch of the 1J.

I'm so glad Bandai stuck with the VF-1J grey for Max's 1A...

So much nicer than Yamato's shock-white.

It's par for the course with NY as of the last few releases.  As @Slave IV always says, "I'm not worried.  It always arrives." :pardon:

Haha, yup! I haven’t even checked if NY shipped mine. Don’t care, it will be at my house eventually.

Looking sharp. NY has been "preparing" mine ( and others) for a few days now. But I know I'll get it eventually.

Yeah, that's why I went with them, they seem to always come through even if they do take a bit to fill those late orders.
