Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1

Recommended Posts

yeah, it closed after almost 5 hours. Got the payment request so it is not an error. Opted for SAL small packet as well.

The frenzy finally got to me. I ordered the super/strike packs.. 

Now I will have to somehow find a Hikaru VF-1S, god help me. (No Preorder) If any of you fleet builders have a spare I'm desperate, though I'm hardly alone there.

 

Now that I've got these I'm thinking of painting my Yamato 1/48 Roy. It has yellowed a good bit.

Nice!  BTW what lens did you use for these photos?

No special lens. I'm just using my Pixel camera for these pics. :)

What a difference it makes, love it!!! B))

Yes, it really does make a huge difference. I never even gave it a second thought till I painted the landing gear for the first time on a Bandai DX. Now I dislike the unpainted landing gear on all of them. :unknw:

No error , just tv max is not that high of a demand yet . Its more likely from a bunch of non payment preorders .

This is what I'm thinking, and why Max seems pretty abundant when the pre-order was insane.  A lot of scalpers dumping their pre-orders because they see that the aftermarket prices are too low to make a profit.

Maybe the same thing could happen with the Hikaru 1S, but I'm not seeing quite the level of downward trend in secondary market pre=order prices as we saw with Max.  We can always hope, though.

When is the first wave of  VF-1 Strike Parts supposed to ship?  Is it December?  I know the 2nd shipment is April 2020.

Yeah with the super parts some of tabs don't lock like in naked mode.  But the v2 (I think, Macross gurus jump in here) added the tabs that the yammie 1/48 didn't have, which made the v2 feel really solid and not a floppy mess like many 1/48 yammie.  I'd suggest watching @jenius videos for transformation steps to get the parts in the position so they don't flop.  I think that's the reason my 1/48 and v2 are still pretty solid.  Do you mean the regular stand or the yammie DYRL stand?  I have both and I only use the DYRL stand for temporary display because it has balance problems.  

Thank you. I am using the Yamato stand. It has been on there for the last few years.

Max arrived today! I can't believe I have a Valkyrie again! Dang it am I kicking myself now for letting them all go before.. 

This one is really beautiful! Absolutely love it! 

My 1J and YF19 are still in order prep but hopefully they will ship soon.

The parcel box got a little crushed in transit and the Valkyrie box got some corner damage but its nothing too bad.

Well yes I know that but what I meant to say was the box hardly looks big enough to offer any real protection in transit. Mine got crushed a little which damaged the corner of the box inside.

Didn't mean to sound silly about it.

Come on people it’s pretty much preorder pricing , go go go .

I wish i would have waited. I spent over a hundred bucks more, and then shipping. Congrats to those lucky ones who got a fair price on TV Max.

If I didn’t already gotten mine from amiami yesterday, I would’ve jump on this but looks like someone got the last one , hope it’s a member here .

yeah for these preorders it’s best to try to preorder them , if that did not work just wait til release and try your luck again . That seem to works pretty well for most .

Maybe I'll get lucky with the Dx HIkkie 1S. I doubt it, but i didn't order it. Lack of this kind of funds for the 1S mixed with a sudden and weird rage caused by my impotence on preorder night,made me lose interest.

Yeah don't I feel stupid paying 27000+ yen for mine. Wish I would have been patient. Maybe there's some hope for Bandai making the next figure more readily available though.
