    Yep. Check my post above. ;) I pulled the head from my DX 1J the other day because I was curious about the ball joint itself. IIRC, other members have noted this feature in the other DX VF-1 thread too. Also, @jenius writes about it in his comprehensive review over on anymoon. 

    @Checkmate and Technoblue

    Thanks! And that is a relief.

  2. If this has been discussed then gomenasai but I noticed that this set has an extra VF1J head with a colored visor(?)/scope or whatever terms applied. I have the 1st ish VF1J and am ambivalent at pulling off that head. Is the neck socket easy to detach?

    I realize this was a while ago, but the shoulder file I posted are recreations of exactly this part.

    Getting it tight is another issue, and one I never completely solved.

    (or is this the new Arcadia Garland that this happened to?! 
    :O )

    The old big scale 1/5 2008 Yamato.  Serves me right for buying it at Y 10,000 + preowned. Just transformed it once to robot mode and kept it that way then 2 weeks later, the arm fell off with the crispy parts falling apart in tinee tiny pieces.

     

    I was watching out for the metal pieces breaking then this just disintegrated. Thank God my VF-0 Phoeneix Yamato's shoulders are still whole. After this, not touching another Yamato EVAH!

    How does one find the preorder page on HLJ?
    Search once it goes on sale?

    Good luck with that big buddy! (on hlj)

    Btw, speaking of which, nothing up yet among the usual suspects. The PO page that is.

    Here's a question I have had kicking around my head for a while, and this is as good a place as any to ask it I figure. I collected MP transformers for a while but that world is just lousy with knockoffs of varying quality. It made it difficult to get an MP TF from anyone except maybe a forum member with a sterling reputation. My question is this, with what Bandai DX figures (overall, not even just Macross) sell for, why haven't there been knockoffs?!? Don't get me wrong, I am GLAD there don't seem to be any as that's a huge headache for most collectors. But what is it that makes the difference? Are transformers just an order of magnitude more popular? Does Bandai just have really aggressive lawyers that Takara lacks? Any info, or even wild conspiracies would be great ^_^

    TFs are hot in China. Molten hot. :lol:Macross isn't that hot. So the market for KO Macross' isn't to profitable for KOers. 

    As for legit MP Tfs, go the JP way from you know where mentioned here a bouts (Jungle Planet, etc etc).;)

    Avoid ebay like a plague!

    April 2020 from Nin-Nin Games, I think they are Japan Based, but it's my first time using them.

    Been reading general JP updates related to the beerbug and if accurate, Manda too has openned all their branches. Unless there is something the JP media aren't telling (same with Manda) or their shipments from China may have met delays.

    I'm going for the latter. (I know how much sucktitude it cost me for my own country's customs delays which might also have something to do with the beerbug )

    I'm jealous! I pre-ordered missiles from Nin-Nin back in April and haven't seen any change to the order status at all :(

    And I paid for FedEx/DHL FWIW

    April 2019 or April 2020? And was the company you ordered from JP based or otherwise? JUst getting the general situation. All of my orders are JP based and sent via DHL. The delays came from my local Customs clearance.

    I got a DX 1J that was missing an articulated hand, and when I inquired through HLJ about just getting a replacement hand, they said Bandai doesn't provide any replacement parts.

    That's Bandai for you. They'll screw up the QC and then refuse to provide any customer support for their screw-ups.

    Waaaaaaait! I got Hobbysearch to replace my Gridman Actibuilder set's missing helmet. Actibuilder is another branch of Bandai through Megahouse. Also got amiami to replace a chipped lip alternate face of my Takara MP BeastConvoy. HLJ was just lazy for all you know.
