Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1

Recommended Posts

They already released

tv Hikaru vf-1j

tv Max vf-1a

Dyrl  Hikaru vf-s

Dyrl  fast/strike packs 

so base on that alone , people would predict the next valk to be either Roy or Kakizaki .  

Bandai made had to make 2 Batch of the fastpack .  (Thanks to everyone that brought their whole fastpack Team in one go, myself included)B))  . 

So who should Bandai release next to get the most profit from all this ?   Obviously Roy .  It’s a Manly hero valk and you will be able slap fast pack and super on it right away , once released.

other that completing the TV team , Kakizaki doesn’t offer that much :unknw:


either way , it doesn’t really matter what Bandai decides to release next , it’s all about getting the preorder before sold out / price bump :p

 

also ,just because a person isn’t lying doesn’t make it true .  They could be telling you something that they thought were true therefore they did not lie . But the answer can still be false :lol:  .

I dont get all the trash talking.  I have nothing but respect for this board, im always checking for updates.  I simply offer what I know for a fact to be true and get roasted...."crap"?  how is this crap?  Why is there so much doubt and negativity here?  You can see from the pics it is a Kakizaki.  My friend at Bandai doesnt lie, has no reason to lie to me for starters.    Disappointed.

@bbilly29 Please clarify the source of the photos.  Are these images what your friend from Bandai sent you, or did you just grab them from somewhere to illustrate your point?

 

Also, please clarify if you can tell the difference between the Hasegawa 1/48, the Yamato 1/48 and the Bandai DX 1/48.  You're claim that the images you posted are of a toy that can transform suggest you may not be able to tell the difference.

 

Apart from staff working at Hasegawa, Yamato, and Bandai, you're posting to some of the internet's foremost experts on these particular toy/model lines who take extreme pleasure in scrutinizing the minutiae of every single detail of these products.

Also, in terms of facts, nothing is fact unless backed up by sufficient evidence. 

The evidence you have provided is not sufficient.  What we have is a statement from you saying you have a source in Bandai that stated such and such, accompanied by images of a Hasegawa 1/48.

I can understand that if you did indeed have a friend working for Bandai, you would not want to compromise their employment by posting their e-mail with the company letter head and your contact's name, but when you post such a statement, then post images of a product from a different company, you should expect a little push-back.

The Kakizaki is very obviously a kit.  The jagged panel line and the fact there's no diagonal seam line through the middle of the kite.  Also, the paint is very flat.

Plus, Bandai DOESN'T do white landing gears. They just don't. Period. :nea:

@Lolicon does though!  Are you holding out on us?!  You're the Bandai rep giving the intel and painted that new Kakizaki DX with white landing gears.

I want to say something humorous or snarky about it being a picture of a thing and that makes it a thing to be involved with the conversation...but I think it's more important that I speak honestly and address the real issue here. I just can't believe this frigging board. What is the matter with you people? Most other fandom boards would rip bbilly's entire existence apart for posting his opinion as fact. Especially after his second post...and you, yes YOU...you are trying to educate and assist him? Nice work.

Right.  No one should take it personally.  You are welcome here in my book @bbilly29 though I'm not sure that I have much street cred.  :drinks:  I believe you are being sincere and appreciate you sharing.  I just think you are being misdirected with the info you received.  But I hope you are right and would welcome the release.

Personally, I felt like he was trolling after the 2nd or 3rd post, so I kind of ignored him after that.  But we do get some odd-ball, genuine posters here everyone once and a while, so I'm not as quick to label someone a troll here as I might be on some other forums, so I kept out of it.

Either way, it's been a slow few months for Macross news, especially for this DX line, so a little trolling/possible misinformation can be a nice distraction from the silence we've been dealing with. :D

So you're ripping on everyone else for not being mean enough? Whatev's mate. 

 

Kakizaki DX would be a welcome announcement.

On a positive note, it is a very nicely done 1/48 Hasegawa build.

Yes. My only nitpick is the pesky crossbones not being very visible being white on white. If only it had a stronger outline or something like the skull.

I also have a NY order open since June of last year. I made the mistake of ordering my armor with the valk in one order. Then my armor got pushed from Dec to April. I expect it all to ship together in April.

Let me assure you these boards are made out of 100% pure honey.

We've also learned that you can't be super-mean to people or they go around playing the victim and it results as a detriment to the community.

 

Hell, we even play nice with the ROBOTECH fans!! [jk guys, love you :wub:]

 

This is either a case of confusion: his info might be spot-on, however not realizing [or even being aware of the Hase 1/48 models in the first place.] the knowledge base on the boards and us being able to tell a [very nicely finished] model kit from a mass-produced transforming collectible/toy, perhaps the poster in question's eyesight is poor, and they literally can't see the differences?, or it's purposeful trolling, and either way, it's just easier to be nice about it while sustaining our own hopes/dreams that Bandai do actually release a complete Vermilion team...

 

Meanwhile, I just want my TV Roy-1S, as I don't own a TV Roy-1S in any toy form yet.

I think it's way easier to post fun/funny memes even if it only amuses me. :pardon:

These are the interwebs.  No one should ever take anything like this serious enough to get feelings hurt.  But that's just my opinion.  At most, people were being confrontational, some sarcastically comedic, and others being super polite and encouraging.  I didn't find anyone "mean" though that's quite subjective, isn't it? (Though for what it's worth, I don't personally think being confrontational encourages healthy community most times and definitely isn't inviting to a newcomer.)

The beauty of this is that whether he was being sincere or trolling, we now have a lively discussion happening over the past several days.  It's been pretty boring without anything new to report on DXs for awhile.  The last lively convo here was on whether or not NY was worth buying from, etc.  I say, bravo, for creating another engaging convo.

Yeah, everyone knows there's another release coming out though, so that's why no one's gone for it. ^_^ 

I already put in a pre-order for the new batch with another site.
