Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


Recommended Posts

Is our resident feline going to pass this madness since you have commitments to take care of? Will be thinking of you during this ruckus and hope that you will be ready to join in the battle when the next one arrives (possibly for the DX YF-21).

He has red shoulder triangles during the transformation animation.

Lol, it continues.

Here's an explanation that I found (Google translated):

 

Quote

In the first half of the video, the performance and transformation gimmick in the play of "DX Chogokin VF-1S Valkyrie Roy Focker Special", the difference between the captain's special machine and the general machine, in the narration of Macross operator Misa Hayase played by voice actor Mika Doi Etc. was explained.

As far as I can tell, she doesn't say thing about the red triangles specifically in the narration.  She doesn't really say anything about the paint except that it has skull markings because he is skull leader, is the best I can make out.  But I'm definitely still learning japanese, so maybe someone else can pick something out. 

I think the actual answer is something along the lines of basically (literally?) every other TV valk has red shoulder triangles, so when people who are used to coloring TV valks go to do the triangles, they make them red, without realizing that Skull Leader (generally) has yellow triangles,  But that is just my theory.

The good news is that he has yellow triangles on the toy showcased in the Kawamori interview at the second half of the video I posted.

She actually does talk about the yellow and black being his special colors FWIW

Going to be right there with the rest of you for the blood bath, if I can't get one, I'll post a WTB on the forums while looking for any other chances to get one. I will also be wanting the Hikaru version of this as well. VF-1D will also be an insta buy as well as any stealth/low-vis paint versions of the VF-1.

I will likely have to pass on this coming pre-order madness.

While my mom's surgery and radiation therapy are now over, she is still experiencing some weakness and lack of vitality due to the lingering side-effects of the radiation.  She also might have incurred some skin cancer due to the aforementioned radiation therapy (will be seeing a doctor in 2 weeks to get that looked at).  Mom is now on chemo therapy (which has its own slew of side-effects), and will be for quite some time.

Given her current health and my need to help care for her, I unfortunately doubt I can attend Thursday night's event.  (sigh)

However, I do hope that everyone here on MWF will be able to get their VF-1S pre-orders in successfully! 

Good luck everyone!

Having gone through that ordeal with Mom I can relate. Things are happening so fast and you cant quite digest everything that is going on.  All the things that seemed important, really aren't. A helpful distraction when you needed it. 

Please take care of Mom and yourself. Cherish all the time you can spend with her. Walks, talks, naps and meals. I miss Mom everyday. 

Best of luck to you and your family.

So they more then likely will not be able to fulfill the order dam . I have never been able to snag any of them expect for the first one vf 1a after they and even before that it's been imposible. I get stuck with nippon yassin

There pre order stays open for quite a but as some people feel they are not reliable, and plus the fact that you have to pay in full 1st. Only bought e Yf-29 30th anniversary ver from them and that was because they had it in stock. That said a few guys have bought from them without problems.

Thanks and we'll all miss you and all of your amazing help! Please take care.

So far I'm 0 for 2 on these DX preorders. Here's hoping the third time is the charm. This is the 1 I really want and will pay extra for.

I wouldn't worry, I don't think Yamato, Arcadia, or Bandai have ever screwed up a paint scheme to that degree, let alone Roy's.

I thought the yellow strips on the hands were reflective strips similar to those seen on aircraft (like the ones on the side of the VF nose section), and the same for all VF-1 schemes - if so, that pale yellow is correct?

Yeah the things that show up as pale yellow are marked as “lights“ in diagrams I looked at, just like the two darker red circles by the ankle or the metallic red on the wing and tail tips. As someone who stressed out a lot over what color Roy yellow should be, I still want to emphasize that I am 95% confident that they used “Reaction Missile Tip Yellow” for the Roy Special trim.

Did anyone noticed that the arrows on the head on the toy prototype in Mr K’s office is black? Thought it was supposed to be yellow?

Yellow head marks are for DYRL, black for TV. I think it has been accepted that the first preview shots simply had an error in them.

That chest color does seem a bit too orange to me too.

It's TV version, it's supposed to be black. The prototype had yellow and people were worried they got it wrong.

 

hmmm.

piggybacking on the previous marked pic...

Yup, that's all this is.  So, it'll be like Christmas when we actually get it.  What markings will be right or wrong?  How exciting...

Definitely the photoshop, because the one Kawamori plays with is not orange at all.
