The image behind the Battroid shows standing pilot figures as well.
I would personally prefer all these option sets in 1 package.

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?
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:
It looks like NY has dropped the price down to 30,000 from 31,600, if anyone is interested:
There is a Pre-Owned Arad's VF-31S at HLJ for 24,500 yen:
All the hasegawa kits are molded in a single colour. See the parts pictures in the following links:
VF-31J (Anniversary): https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10514611
The kits come with water slide decals to replicate some of the colourful parts but some painting is required.
Product pages are up -
available for pre-order now, web shop exclusive.
The set looks great. I was wondering if you had any experience doing photo-etch? The dash insert in photo-etch would be awesome.
Why am i refreshing macrossworld...???
Could be this:
It would also explain the NY VF-31A fiasco...
uummmm... liver with fava beans....
Someone posted a scan of the instructions earlier in this thread. Most like around release time. Not sure if you can search the thread and filter posts by date.
MAFEX Iron Spider - April 2019
They really like to announce their releases early...
If anyone is still looking, VF-31F reissue is still up at 1999.co.jp. At least it allows me to add to cart:
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.
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
New pictures of the Mirage Super Parts, due out in May:

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.
Shown on the DX SV-262 thread, this twitter has the Hasegawa kit painted in Messer colors, along with some WIP pictures:

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.
I'd like to see more 1/48 items. A VF-25 in 1/48 to go with the VF-1 and YF-19 would be sweet.
Bandai DX VF-31
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.
