It's the Kite logo (TV) Skull logo (DYRL) and the arm mounted missile launcher's shape

To get an idea of the diffs, just go to http://anymoon.com/blog/?p=8895 and see it.

That's fir the classic Yammie/Arcadia 1/60v2 versions, tho, as Bandai has yet to release their TV super-packs for the DX.  

They'd only released the DYRL super/strike-packs so far.

I thought I had seen it somewhere in this thread, and found it:

Count me in as another person waiting and seeing on NinNin. Got one at $225, paid PayPal, it releases within the 180 days of coverage, we'll see. I've gotten multiple items from them before and have never been screwed, so that's one more positive experience to add I guess.

Hopefully when November rolls around everyone who ordered gets their toys, won't bother with them anymore if I see others getting screwed at release.

agree - with the DX and its (almost) over the top tampo markings, I think that some of them may be different between the TV super pack and the DYRL strike pack, such as the "ARMD-01" reference would probably be switched to "Prometheus" for the TV version.

I'm still up running on coffee and energy drinks.

I managed to get 3-4 hours sleep in from about 6:30 am, so will see how things go this afternoon, but am thankful it's a holiday today.

That's my only preorder from last night, so I sure hope they come through.

Heh. I stop checking these forums regularly for around 2 weeks and seems that's all it took for the Focker type to be announced, made available for preorder, and completely miss the boat. Hopefully it's still possible to acquire one of these later down the road.

Oddly enough, I don't feel that bummed by it.

There will be more chances upon release date.

Getting a hernia/ulster or keeping a fit of rage isn't going to help. Your personal health is more important unless you want to die an early death with a black heart in your chest cavity.

do you think we'll get the two seaters?  if a 1D comes out I NEED it as much as this roy.  the 1D, roy's 1S, and hikaru's 1J are like the trio that mean the most to me as an SDFM fan.  sure completing vermillion would be nice as well as max and mirria's 1js and of course browies and brownie 1J but i don't want to repeat the 1/60 v2s and go for near completion. 

I don't think I want a two seater in the current DX VF-1 configuration TBH.  Imagine it would probably take a remold or "renewal version" of some sort to incorporate the dual seater canopy design, and also the nosecone-release mechanism that's trademark of the VF-1D. 

If Bandai can do that, then I'll gladly hand over much higher than MSRP for it if I have to.

It would all depend on whether or not the DX 1/48 was designed from the start with two seaters in mind. Yamato's 1/60 V2's were designed with two seaters in mind from day one. I fear that we will never see such a complete paint scheme release ever again. :(

Still up! What do you guys think of getting together in securing PO-Valks for Macrossworld-members in the future. I am tired of the madness, it's so frustrating. Lets invest in bots and secure Valks for us!

There is a thread discussing that.

I wonder if we can pool our buying power together, can we setup a deal with Bandai (just like other shop did) to secure a fixed number for our members here. Maybe via someone in Japan that can setup a "company".

So, i decided to just DIY it. No point to crying about it. I just wish I had a white plate instead of grey. Anyway, it works. better than before. ;)

Really nice fix. Glad to see that this is resolved. I have not open my hiki 1S yet. After seeing your post, I am getting worried.

TV vs movie super packs.

-different color

-different insignia

-slightly different markings

-no strike cannon variant for TV

-different arm launcher design

Will Bandai be as fastidious as Yamato about the differences? That remains to be seen, but I'm going to bet no.

Boy that would sure be nice, this PO bloodbath stuff is not something I care to repeat. It's been many years since I last participated in one here on the forums with you all. It took Banda's DX 1/48 Roy to bring me back, lol.

Getting too old and tired for this sh**.

If I end up without a Roy 1S after November, I think I'll sell off my DX 1/48s. Really pointless to collect them all but be missing Roy's. I'll just have to be happy with my completed 1/60 squadrons. :crazy:

Dam I slept through all this and man what a cluster duck. I don’t remember the VF-1S Hikaru dropping much less than ¥30000. Hoping for people that didn’t get one that it’s cheaper on release

Am I correct in seeing that only the Bandai DX Chogokin first editions of the Hikaru VF-1J and the Roy VF-1S include the extra stands?  Did they make stands for the Hikaru VF-1S, Max VF-1A, Hayao VF-1A?

No they didn't. 

Edit: Just the regular stands only for Max, Hayao and Hikaru's 1j

1/60 Yammies (both mk. 2?) with @Lolicon's special touch to make it pop out more! 

Edit: Looks like one is Arcadia? 

@Lolicon - Can you verify if that is correct?

DYRL strike parts are from Arcadia but everything else is Yamato (v2).
