  1. I think I have a VF-31AX Hayate fighter mode obsession. 😅

    So far I have 4x VF-31AX Hayate, displayed as:

    • 1x in Fighter mode.
    • 1x in Fighter mode with Super Packs.
    • 1x in Fighter mode with Armored Pack.
    • 1x in Fighter mode with Super Ghost set.

    I just absolutely love how the VF-31AX looks in Fighter mode.

    I also have:

    • 1x VF-31AX Mirage type in Fighter mode.
    • 1x VF-31AX Bogue type in GERWALK mode.

    If Bandai ever release the Arad and Chuck VF-31AX, I'm definitely getting 2 of each and displaying one in Fighter mode and one in Battroid mode.

  2. I never used to like the HMR line, but have recently gotten into them in a big way and been expanding my HMR collection and really started appreciating them. The good thing is can fit far more of them on a shelf compared to 1/60 or 1/48 toys.

    I'm really looking forward to the upcoming VF-19 Fire Valkyrie HMR that has been teased. Also, as a big Macross 7 fan I'm hoping eventually for more Macross 7 HMR toys, especially a VF-17D/S and VF-11C, although I realise that's probably a long shot.

    But my current Holy Grail for an HMR would by the DYRL type Nousjadeul-Ger. As a huge DYRL fan I've wanted a toy of that for sooooooo long.

    I’ve never used the attack eggs. 

    I've used the missiles on my 19, my 171, my 31C, 31AX…

    Yeah, these reissue pin point punch effects really look like 2 fried eggs. I think I will never use them when I get the toy.

    Wish it came with missiles instead.

    Hey all. Just dug these out of the closet. Gave them a wash. Just come classic Macross shirts. ^_^


    At my age (nearly 54), I kinda feel embarrassed to wear most anime related clothing, especially the jackets posted in this thread,

    However, I would wear both these T-shirts.

  5. So, what is next on everybody's DX VF-1 wish list, after the release of the Hikaru VF-1S with clear Strike/Super Parts?

    For me, I really want:

    • VF-1A TV Cannon Fodder
    • VT-1
    • VE-1
    • VF-1A Hikaru DYRL
    • VF-1A Max DYRL
    • VF-1S Max DYRL


  6. Started putting my HG YF-29 kit together at the weekend. Just doing a simple build, no paint, no panel lining, just snap it together and slap the stickers on.

    Got the battroid mode head, torso, groin arms and legs built so far.

    It's actually a fun little kit to build and although the YF-29 is actually one of my least favorite Valk designs, I've gotta say the kit actually looks pretty good so far.

    Very nice.  I'm currently at 21 CF VF-1s.

    I only have one HMR CF VF-1A that I picked up last week. 😅

    I love that it comes with the DYRL green flight suit pilot

    Do we know if the Japan limited edition will have an English language option?

    It's unknown at this stage, but my guess is going to be no.

    But being a scrolling shoot-em-up game, I doubt the game will have complicated controls or menu system, so likely the Japanese version will not be difficult to figure out.

    But personally, I planning to buy both the Japanese version and the international release.

  9. Gonna get one. As my old one yellowed, so I threw it out.

    But I really hope they have improved the removeable wing peg and the black triangles.

    Overall, I remember being incredibly excited for the VF-171 toys when they were first announced, and then being extremely frustrated with all the issues that the toys had once they were released.

    And yes, we need a reissue of the Ozma VF-25S and Armored Pack.

    I kinda think now, that international DYRL fans are the most screwed from BW-HG deal.

    BW can't bring TV VF-1s outside Japan, but at least on HG side there are other quality brands now like Threezero covering that. But movie VF-1 schemes are still very much in international purgatory and limited to JP only. 

    From all the photos I've seen so far of the Threezero VF-1J, the large chest vents and weird head sculpt just don't do it for me, so I don't think I'm going to be picking one up.

    Happy enough at the moment with the Bandai DX and HMR for my VF-1 needs.

    I even got rid of most of my old Yamato 1/48 and 1/60 v2 in the last few years as most of the ones with white plastic had yellowed to some degree.

    it is wild to me we got an angel birds and not the VT-1 or VE-1, as far as fan favorite obscure valk's go. Its also just wild to me that

    VF-1D is the only one with the Battroid Egress Seat?
    The TV and Movie variants only come with 2 TV style fixed pose hands ( while the VF-1D comes with all of them? )
    The display stand is still the really disappointing hexagon but first releases had really nice display stands that could bank! ( And older DX toys had more specific display stands )
    No missiles with the missile set having been a one time exclusive, it is baffling they didn't include respective missiles for TV and Movie sets
    Non-regular releases, i know Chogokin is the high end line that sees limited releases but still.... maybe with the whole big west and HG deal we'll see more?
    The weird issue with Super part configuration in fighter mode not having proper connections.
    And lastly, for some, no white landing gears ( im not bothered by it but it would be nice to )

    Otherwise its a solid toy, and i think it'd be perfect if they at least included a few more things!

    My Bandai DX VF-1J with GBP-1S Armor set also includes the Battroid egress seat.

    Doing a wash in the cockpit and I think Bandai forgot to glue this part down 🤔


    It's common with the DX line. 2 out of my 5 DX VF-1 toys came with loose cockpit instrument panels.

    Mine arrives tomorrow, if I should happen to have that issue I'll let you know. 

    Is that the lighting from your camera or does your 0D have two shades or blue?

    Just the lighting from my phone camera's flash.
