Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1

Recommended Posts

I'll be in Japan during that time. Maybe I can nab one from a brick & mortar somewhere (though experience tells me probably not).

I'm a little confused.Is this saying that the PO units will start shipping then? Or is it another PO?

That's just the official release date.  Like all other Bandai release dates, they tend to start to trickle out a day or two before.

If memory serves correct, you secured a late PO from NY, right @sqidd?  I'm guessing you are confused by NY's date of Nov 30th.  When PO's drop, the stores don't have a firm release date so they always put like the last day of the release month and then update it to the accurate date when Bandai announces it.  So, you'll likely see an email hit from NY sometime in the next week informing you that the date has been changed to Nov 23.

I think the plastic cylinder is hiding something to be revealed later?

Armor parts perhaps?

Hey that reminds me......where is the GBP!?!

what can they hide in there? Cylinder is so thin..

That or someone goofed up big time, not knowing there was a pillar there...

So does it come with a red skull 001 or 011? Only one set in the box. 

I don't know, but the Strike product page has the 001.  Now that the Hikkie 1A is on display, I might need another Strike set...

Sorry I came late to this train. If I didn't pre-order the DYRL 1S, will I be SOL? Also is there any webshop that still has the preorders open?

Okay, Bandai. You're making it hard for me to hold onto my Yamato DYRL squad. :lol:

I'm so glad I didn't buy any 1/48 Yamato after seeing these :D Bandai quality is second to none.

Has there been any news as to when that 1A will be available for preorder?  I’d like to try and not miss out on preorder pricing this time around haha. :)

I surprised that the FAST Packs are displayed without any panels removed. The VF-1A pictures make it look like the top cover on the boosters is removable.

So what I'm seeing is a VF-1A Hikaru, VF-1A Hayao and the YF-21 Guld all in one show???? My wallet just ran away.

Had the same thought.  We've seen the fast packs displayed what feels like half a dozen times now, and not once have we seen any internal detail displayed.

And yet, with the whole swap-out emblem thing, it seems like at least the top booster cover comes off.  But they refuse to show it.  Such a weird situation.  Maybe it comes off but has no engine detail?  Would they really do something that dumb?

Don't forget VF-1A Max (DYRL ver)!

Yeah tell us who the person is so we can all pester them about the spare valk they already sold lol

Umm my original question was where to buy, not whether or not someone else found a deal and can't share the deal with others.  As far as pestering goes, who said I was in this to try to annoy someone on facebook? you?

so they're gonna do the whole dyrl squad huh?  i don't see roy though...oddly.  i preordered the strike packs set but not paying $330+shipping for a hikaru 1S without the strike pack.  hopefully they'll do a roy which i can pretend is both tv and dyrl versions lol...and i'll put the pack on him if i can secure one when his PO is up sometime in the not so near future it seems.

Right.  Thanks for supporting my reply.  But to @Lolicon's point, there are only 4 colors in the box and the pic of Hikkie 1A clearly shows 011 instead of his 1S 001.

Inquiring minds want to know...

I'm hoping on a dream here. But what if the DYRL versions Hikaru, Hayao & Max come with their Super Parts?

Then I don't think Bandai would be making a big deal if the replacement inserts.

Agreed.  I just purchased a 5th Strike Set so hopefully it wasn't for naught.  Just wonder how they're going to distribute the 011 insert.  Will it be an add-on purchase, included in the Strike Parts, or will separate Strike Parts be sold with the 011?  Hopefully, we'll know more over the course of this weekend and coming week. :)
