  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  6. 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:

    Is there a head comparison of the various -31s at all? I'm thinking about picking another one of these up and debating between the various kit releases - regular J/C/F/S, J-Kai, or Super J. The itasha decals that come with the J-Kai don't interest me that much (though the paint scheme is nice), and I'm on the fence about the Super packs, though I suppose if I do want one I can just pick up the add-on kit.

    But yeah, a head comparison would be greatly appreciated, since that's the major difference between the different models. I'm leaning toward getting the F and shaving the horn, but I still don't have a great idea how the heads looks aside from the J's.

    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.

  8. 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.


  9. 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.

  10. 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.
