  1. Dam, I knew NY was dirty when they couldn't deliver on my VF-31A and only offered me back store credit, when I asked for refund before the 31A became a debacle, but never would I have thought they would shut down and run. GL to those that need to recoup their funds, hopefully other stores in Japan don't resort to this type of antic.
  2. Barbatos Lupus and Zaku II black tri-star still available on Anime-Export Passed on Lupus, and got one tri-star at AE, and one at amiami, wanted to buy 3 from AJ but missed that window.
  3. Well I got some decent news today. I've had quite a few packages at CDJapan waiting to ship via registered SAL, and since maybe CDJapan is getting tired of holding onto my items they are shipping them Non-registered air mail free of charge as it is the only shipping option to the U.S.
  4. If anyone wants a Gundam Fix Figuration Char Zaku I, its up for preorder on amazon.co.jp https://www.amazon.co.jp/FIGURATION-COMPOSITE-機動戦士ガンダムTHE-ダイキャスト製-塗装済み可動フィギュア/dp/B08GSG3GB8/ref=sr_1_1?__mk_ja_JP=カタカナ&crid=M0N4PSUFT9AA&dchild=1&keywords=gundam+fix+figuration+metal+composite&qid=1601006408&sprefix=gundam+fix+figu%2Caps%2C224&sr=8-1
  5. Bandai had released this I think 2 years ago as a web exclusive. Most people that wanted it got it then. Plus Bandai pulled a Malibu Stacy by only changing up the mounting point to make it compatible with the Strike Gundam and its Striker packs. This is probably the only Gundam Metal Build that may shelf warm for a while. After looking at the prices on the USA PBandai stuff and comparing it to NY it looks like USAPbandai and NY prices are pretty close. So it looks like USA PBandai adds a little to the top, as they are not 100% Bandai because of the Bluefin distribution thing. Since the Astray Blue Frame 2nd Revise is a MB I've been wanting for a while I just took one of the AE order for it and the Launcher pack. Buying early and paying probably $20-40 more for peace of mind. Here's hoping that USAPBandai/Bluefin streamline whatever they are doing so that it benefits us the consumers at least just a lil bit. Plus I emailed Bluefin today with two questions, They answered one, and completely ignored my question regarding the Astray Blue Frame 2nd Revise.
  6. Depends on where your at, but it may sit at the airport for a while waiting for a flight out. I ordered something from Manda on 3/28, and it finally arrived at LAX on 4/24 via EMS.
  7. I hope your right, but I just can't see it. Also this is the first time they are releasing the Aile pack as a stand alone product. The only other time the Aile pack was released was with the first Metal Build Strike Gundam release. You might be confusing the Astray Flight unit for the Aile pack which looks very similar and practically has the same color scheme. DAMMIT! I was going to skip all the individual pack releases and wait for hopefully a Perfect, Otoori, and IWSP pack, but now I need to buy them all, so that I can display one of my Strikes like this. DAM Bandai loves making people broke.
  8. Bandai is releasing the striker packs one at a time for maximum wallet drainage. Plus in the anime all the striker packs had their very own intro ep. The perfect strike didn't show up until Seed Remaster, it wasn't part of the original show. My guess is that aile, buster, and sword packs won't link together since on the buster it looks like they are connected on by a backpack, and the aile pack don't have a place to link the sword and buster. I'm hoping I'm wrong and that your theory is right though, We will probably find out when full pictures come when the preorder listing shows the back. But I really expect Bandai to release a Perfect Strike after the Sword pack is released, but as a bundle with the Perfect pack and Strike Gundam bundled. The Perfect has 3 extra energy fillers attached to the aile pack which none of these individual pack releases will have. Plus it lets Bandai take more of our money and milk their molds.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Dam Bandai is destroying my Wallet for July/August shipping month. 31E, SOC Voltron, GFF Zaku, GFF RX-78-2, and not 31S armored parts. Makes me worry about what else is coming out in July 2019.
  10. Up on Toydojo https://www.toydojo.com/gx-71-voltron-voltron-defender-of-the-universe-bandai-soul-of-chogokin-reissue/

    Bandai DX VF-31

    It doesn't look like the armor replaces the forward canards on the cockpit area. I think its just that the picture is really scrambled up because of resolution. Also the second hand 31S's are starting to move due to the announcement of the Armor parts coming. Only one left on Manda when they had 6 a week ago.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Makes me wonder if they will release the regular Fastpack for the 31S and 31E. I want those more then the Full Armor.
  13. By keeping an eye on your 25F and how it reacts to temperature and direct sunlight. When most people reported the issue I think it occurred during higher temps and being exposed to sunlight.
  14. Price Drop $250 shipped. Hayate needs a new home.
  15. TTT=to the top, instead of the typical bump.
  16. Man I was going to pass on any more additional Ride Armors due to the QC issues riddling the first Stick release, but WOW that blow superior, just blew my pants off.
  17. I'm surprised we got no news for Bandai Valks at Wonderfest.
  18. That's just brutal and killer, I might have to pass this one up. Arcadia prices are getting ridiculous.
  19. Dam! If they actually release it in that color and panel lined, here I come by first PF Arcadia release.
