Last time I spoke with Fext hobby they said they have the Sci-Fi 2nd version coming soon, and to my understanding it would be a different set than the "Starwars" one. Any idea when it would be available ?

Man, I wish they didn't put a blank one in there... I can't imagine that's a set up many people will use.

Do you have a suggestion for something different that would work better?

I think they went with the blank VF-1 because the white armor was the first test print to be fitted onto the VF-1 and test fitting parts could damage the paint.  The grey armor was printed after the white one, I am assuming they made revisions when printing the grey version so better tolerances to not damage the paint on the VF-1J.

It would be nice to see how it looks on a more common valk... like any DYRL off-white or TV white.

Just went on Fext Hobby's FB page and thought you might be interested for those that are not on FB.

Here's the rundown for the "Project 600": Owl One 1/60 Armour Update (as per their post):

""PROJECT 600" will be ended tomorrow (1 Dec., 2018), it's a pity we still haven't got enough pre-orders to kick off the project. We want to thank you again for backers for the support & made the pre-orders for this campaign.

RE: EXTENDED PROJECT 600! (As of January 31, 2019)

We think PROJECT 600 is still a potential campaign, so we would like to extend the project time for 3 more months (ends on 1 Mar., 2019) for a better campaign with new Armour color options!

We would like to increase the Armour options to 5 instead of 2, so Fans can have more choices! For those backers who already paid are free to change the color options by informing our CS dept. (cs@fexthobby.com).

New pre-order information of new color options will be posted in our online store in 2 days!

The project schedule will be same as before, in coming 3 months, if we receive 600 pre-orders (Assorted style), we will officially start the mould & bring this item alive in another 5 months (excluding factory new year vacation from mid of January, 2019 – end of February, 2019).

A deposit of U$15. is required for each Pre-order (Product Price: US$ 77.90). Deposit will be refunded if the campaign doesn’t reach 600 pcs. pre-order after 3 months. Incase the campaign successfully reaches the target, deposit is not refundable & all supporters need to pay the balance before delivery of the goods (individual mail will be sent to all supporters to finish the complete deal!).

Remarks: Shipping charge to be advised separately once final packaging format fixed.

NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO BRING THE PROJECT ALIVE!

PAYMENT RETURN for Backers:
For backer who needs refund, pls. mail order details to cs@fexthobby.com, we shall follow your case accordingly."

Note: They're still missing a lot of pre-orders as per the write up 9 weeks ago.

I believe that that they still haven't met the 600 pre-orders requirement to make the 1/60 Thunder Hummer Armoured Set. 

@Saburo: Any further details that you might want to add since your working with Fext Hobby to get exposure on this project?

@borgified I don't have much info to add, they have told me that they have not reached 600 pre-orders yet, about a little over 50% to the goal. I am hoping that my photos helps get the project to its goal.

They should just combine A/B and C/D and either drop E or make it a one-off with all possible weapons and armor.....maybe they would get their pre-orders if customers/fans felt they were get more for their money. Nahhhh!!! ^_^

Totally agree with this. Even though I’ve mentioned my dislike of the milking they do, I still try to support and promote them but it is pretty clear most fans that know about this are not biting.

I hope they make a 1/100 version of the 1/60 Set E color scheme.

I think the 1/100 version will be made.

I have been waiting a for a while but I can finally tell you about the New FEXT SCI-FI 03 display unit. This was a design collaboration between myself and Fext Hobby, I designed it to be usable for various sized figures/mecha, it can be a display/diorama or as photobooth.

Here are pics from FEXT Hobby/FEXT System.  More information is coming.

Very nice. I like that it’s plug and play. I have a bunch of the msg chain bases which are nice but I feel like you have to paint them to reach their full potential. The printing on these adds a lot of depth.
