Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


Recommended Posts

Ordered from Okini, no time to wait around on proxies. Stoked for this! Now I just have to wait for my shipping info on my 1S to be updated since i ordered ebay for way too much before i knew about any of these japan sites.

Wow, went to play ace combat 7 for 2 hours and so much has happened. Question now is, should I bother getting the TV supers since I don’t have Roy and most likely won’t be getting it or just get them to put on TV 1J

How quickly did FJ cancel your orders? Even before you were given a chance to pay?

I've paid charge 1 but expecting it to be cancelled. This happened with my 1A Kakizaki PO as well. FJ refunds the charge after a few days.

Grabbed 2 sets through Okini.. if I see them on AE later, I'll try for another two, just to be certain... because if we ever get a VF-1D, I'm absolutely making a custom orange set. :lol:

Pre-order madness strikes again and after the TV DX 1s Roy!! :vava: 

I'll say. I started my night trying to hunt down a DX Roy that was ballpark close to the pre-order prices I have seen, and ended up finding out about these TV parts and going on a goose chase for em.

Yeah, I wanted to see how everyone did on their hunt for Roy...and I saw this.

This site costs me money...every time I try to stay away, it brings me back.

Thanks that worked, but they have a listing for the TV supers? Or did they hide it somehow?

Haven't seen it yet...

I've been checking Big In Japan ever since people here stated the Super Parts went up for pre-order on TWE.

I was psychicly bullied into buying this stuff. About a year ago i encountered a "robotech" toynami 1/100 in a random geek theme shop, and decided i didnt have the cash for it at the time. I used to have one, but my old job stole it from me. I was never much impressed with the build quality, but nonetheless, i'm a macross fan since as long as i could remember, and just having some form of macross toy made me happy.

The point: fast forward to about 3 weeks ago, I'm tormented by recurring dreams that I'm searching through endless toy shops looking for any macross toy i can find just to have one, lol, but its a nightmare, i always have to leave the store empty handed. I decided enough is enough, and i have to finally pick up a good VF-1. Research lead me to find the dx would satiate all my desires and not fall apart like the toynami, and conveniently its all coming out pretty recently, which is cool.


Now im over 500 deep into my first real collectors pieces and i couldnt be happier. Hopefully the dreams stop.

Woke up to see this page lit and also an FB post showing the TV super parts announcement. Ordered from Okini land for the first time, but am not too worried about having to secure a second pack on Mandarake after release. 

Parts/Armors have the advantage of being much easier to produce than transforming valks, and so it’s much easier to support the potential demand.

Haven’t received an order cancellation from FJ yet, but they’re probably finished for the day now so I won’t get a cancellation until tomorrow.

I had to upgrade my shipping to UPS...but I finally got it.

I was part of the 1st pre-order group too.

I've just re-ordered with Nin-Nin at an elevated price. 

I guess I'll give N-Y a chance to respond to my ticket and either ask for a refund or resell them if they ever ship to cover my costs.

Is okin pay now or pay later?

I think Okini Land sold out of their allocation already. 
 

but to answer your question they’re pay upfront.

Gonna sit this one out, Roy's is the only one I want, unless they make a Hikaru TV 1S. 

If it wasnt for Roy I probably never would've logged on to MW  again for the rest of my life lol...

NY, BIJ, and AE typically carry web exclusives. There are a few other like kurama, nin nin and okiniland but I think a couple of those have sold out already.

I almost slept through this one :lazy:

For those who missed the early bird orders, we’ll probably see more places put them up when Monday rolls around in Japan. It’s now 9PM, Sunday over there.
