  1. 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.
  2. MAFEX Iron Spider - April 2019 They really like to announce their releases early... Preoder: https://hlj.com/product/medmafex-81 http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-040184&page=top https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10545384
  3. If anyone is still looking, VF-31F reissue is still up at 1999.co.jp. At least it allows me to add to cart: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10540715
  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
  6. New pictures of the Mirage Super Parts, due out in May:
  7. I think the shape of the wings may interfere with the boosters, but won't know for certain until Bandai confirms or denies.
  8. Shown on the DX SV-262 thread, this twitter has the Hasegawa kit painted in Messer colors, along with some WIP pictures: https://twitter.com/Dqz8Cv
  9. Yup, hurled against the wall... rip VF-171, but not really. I hated you with a passion.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. This looks like the 1980's model that they based the US Monogram GoBots Leader 1 model on (they also released a Cy-Kill model based on the Mospeada Ride armour). I built the Monogram one 30 years ago and it was representative of 1980s model technology. Here is a video showing the Monogram contents:
  13. Dalong.net has all the delta kits reviewed. There are no closeups, but he has some clear shots of the different heads. He puts them under the Bandai Ect heading.
  14. I finally got me super parts for the J and put them on battroid mode the other day. Today, while transforming it ti fighter, it noticed bandai screwed up on the tampo on the arm shields. The 05 markings are on the same side of the shield. Shouldn't they be on opposite sides so that they both face outwards in fighter mode? I checked with a few of the pics in this thread and they all seem to be this way.
  15. I got some of this stuff from the local Home Depot and it is handy for minor repairs, but the bonding strength is pitiful. The stuff hardens as advertised, but it can be dislodged with a bit of pressure, i.e. scratching it with a fingernail. You can probably use it as gap filler, but it is no substitute for rods a good glue.
  16. Looks like Bandai did not paint the wingtip lights according to standards. Both wingtip lights are red but the right wingtip should be green...
  17. I wonder how those missles will look on a 1/60 vf-31?
  18. Once it is in the Japan Post queue, the tracking will not update until it reaches the US post office. Once their, they should update the progress through customs, etc until it is delivered to your address. Up in Canada, our post office decided that it was too difficult for them to update the status on registered packages so now they only track outbound packages. This change was done quietly and without any press.
  19. They were a huge hit and it sold really well, unfortunately Beagle made no money on them and they went out of business. There is a rumour that the last 2 (Houquet/Rook and Yellow/Lancer) toys were prototyped and they exist in someone's personal collection.
  20. If they do that, they will be gone for sure. That license is like the kiss of death (poor Beagle)...
  21. And I think they still have the free decals on 1/72 macross delta kits...
  22. He blew the canopy off to be able to fit the two of them.
  23. HLJ is offering Macross Delta Walkure Decals with the purchase of 1/72 kits. If you have one in your PW and you ship it during the campaign, you will also receive the decals, but you cannot purchase one to your PW. It must ship during the campaign. Luckily I had not shipped my Mirage VF-31 so I should get a set. https://hlj.com/macross-2017
