yeah, since it was sold out so quickly, I wasn't really 100% sure that my preorder was the 1st batch.  But I look and sure enough it's all there waiting to be shipped.   Too bad i was force to ship my other stuff just last week due to their 45 day rule. :(.     Now Im gonna wait til next month to ship theses since I do not like to ship stuff over christmas rush. 

Mine is 100% in the first batch, and I have some other stuff waiting on it to show up. Hoping I can get it all shipped out before the new year.

 

[edit] Checking again, looks like mine have arrived, but no email alert yet.

Now to decide if I want to ship out, or wait for the RG X-2 Gundam...

I wonder if anyone will make a attachment to fill up that big empty space . ;)

or maybe use it to store fixed pose hands

So, Hobby Search never responded to PayPal. I’m being refunded 100% for my 1S. I have another one that is fine and being displayed in battroid, so I may just keep the defective one in fighter mode and just never transform it.

Brilliant! I keep hoping for more diorama and other parts that have built in storage. That was my #1 request in the recent Star Wars SHF survey too. I wonder if they did it on purpose for that reason and if you can actually fit a set or more hands in there?

Nice! Free defective Valks is still free Valks.

Nice to finally have a complete DX Skull-001.

It's really difficult to assume the iconic two-handed pose, however, because the armor on the arms is so long, it leaves no clearance for the micro-missile pods...

They seem really blue. Are they that blue in DYRL?

I dont remember it clearly but it usually changes every scene due to how they try to emulate the lighting. There is a post prior to you that shows it is blue.

I've got no issue with it. Just wondering.

The DX with those colors looks pretty "Murica!". :D

I always thought the official color leaned closer to blue. The Yamato/Arcadia ones felt a little closer to green which I wish it didn't but wasn't really bad.

The photos above make the blue seem richer but I guess we'll find out once we have it in hand for ourselves.

Do the leg armors have any internal details or are they also just as empty?

I don’t seem to be banned yet. :search: But wouldn’t shock me if I am at some point. Right now it’s really PayPal who is refunding me while they hunt done HS since they never responded.

Can you get the wings further up and tuck the forearm lower like this?

The covers aren't even removable, man.  <_<

Some day this pose can be exactly achieved in toy form.

Unfortunately not with the DX VF-1S.

Uh... it would seem that @tekering would think otherwise. I think he crushed that pose.

I'd say Tekering got it close enough considering the limitations of the toy vs anime magic:

Just need it to get it on a display stand to have it floating in space :)

It's close but there hasn't been a toy that's been able to position the arms correctly.

Need smaller wings and micro missile pods.

I saw a beautiful custom Hasegawa a few years ago in Hobby Japan that looked spot on from that DYRL pose, but yeah, not a toy.

yeah, that's gorgeous!  maybe it's parallax of the lens or the color of the head, but it really creates a longer nose look!  lookin' amazing!

Do the missile booms themselves have any kind of internal detail?  I'm guessing no?

The lack of internal detail at this price and this scale is pretty disappointing.  Not that I really used it much on the yamcadia's, it was still nice to know it was there and I did use it for hangar-style displays every once in a while.  We really shouldn't be moving backward at this price point.  Shame on Bandai.

It's a free market. The only shame is for the people who purchased something that they didn't like the value of.

I'm looking forward to see how much fits in the empty space. If there is enough room to fit all the hands and intake covers, I want more hollow space in all the future add on parts!
