Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1

Recommended Posts

See, I think if it was DYRL version people would assume there would never be a TV version so you would get both crowds. By doing the TV version they are giving hope of a later DYRL version so some people (the Japanese fans) may sit this one out and wait for the DYRL version.

Do you think this would be better or worse if this was a DYRL version? Same?

It'll be worse, I reckon, since DYRL is more popular than TV in Japan.

I can see the logic in that - hope that would be the case.

Interesting, I was unaware of this. Well maybe a DYRL Roy release will be a super nightmarish PO night.

many of us did. I was actually not doing anything during that time frame. What made me assume that NY will stick to the usual antics.

I had them not ship and not respond to anything several months after something was released. Got my money back and never used them again. I'd say if you can get a order there, it doesn't hurt since worst case you get your money back too.

Thread moves fast.

Not quite.

Think Bandai is just capitalizing on Roy's TV-uniform novelty.

The Japanese fans/otakus just lurvs novelties and stuff...

You're only allowed to acknowledge one purchase. Any more than that and we verbally flog you as a cold-hearted scalper among other much worse things.

Thanks to whoever posted that Evangelion dyna-action figure link - I pulled the trigger so even if I miss on Roy I have a consolation. Made sense as I don't have any metal build eva's yet and these are bigger than em :)

I have placed about 5 orders with them over the last couple years (a few HM-R's and a minipla Dancouga).   No problems so far.  Granted, they are not in-demand items, so, make what you will of one person's experience.

I will have no hesitation trying to place a PO with them tonight if I can.
