  1. So the only things that makes the armour pack unique to Arad are the new shoulder covers (which looks like they either clip onto the canards or replaces the canards) and the logo on the chest armour.

    Maybe Bandai just wanted to make sure everyone ordered multiples by claiming this release would be unique with the included stand.....has Bandai ever released a DX VF that did not come with a stand? :unknw:

    Beginning to think that was it for the VF-1J.  Based on recent releases I think chances are pretty good at finding one as the release day approaches and on release day.

    Hope we see the TV VF-1S and TV fast packs at the Tamashii event later this month!

    The first release of the VF-1J comes with 2 stands.  It has the stand that is included with the other Bandai DX release as well as a second, banking stand for fighter mode:


  3. All the hasegawa kits are molded in a single colour.  See the parts pictures in the following links:

    VF-31A: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10472150

    VF-31J (Anniversary): https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10514611

    VF-31J: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10460298

    VF-31C: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10486644

    The kits come with water slide decals to replicate some of the colourful parts but some painting is required.

  4. I got my VF-31a from NY that was shipped on 2018-04-23 via SAL.  No brown TWE box.  I have not opened it for inspection, will probably wait until the weekend.

    Sorry to hear that there have not been any updates in the last 2 weeks.

  5. Got my shipping notice last night as well.

    order number: 488781

    ordered and paid: 2018-10-06 21:30:53

    decided to just wait it out.  Good luck to those still waiting.y

    From the looks of it the main wing body and the rest of the attach points are the same mould as the rest of the 31s, so I'd guess that any will fit. If they don't release a set of true neutral packs, Messer's would probably be the best fit.

    If anyone else sees a problem here, please correct me!

    I think the shape of the wings may interfere with the boosters, but won't know for certain until Bandai confirms or denies.

    I did my 2nd transformation to Gerwalk as well putting on the Missile Parts, and I still have to watch the Jenius video to do it, but I don't mind the Drakken transformation, it is complex, but somehow strangely satisfying to me...not like certain VF-171's of the past...that i would prefer to hurl against a wall rather than transform again...

    Yup, hurled against the wall... rip VF-171, but not really. I hated you with a passion.

    Nice, been on the lookout for a review.

    Why did he take the arm apart and what did he do exactly?

    It looks like the reviewer's copy had either a burr or thick paint application on the folding joint on the shoulder preventing the piece from resting correctly in battroid mode.  He disassembled the shoulder and sanded down the link piece to remove the obstruction.
