  1. If ever in the future Solo-Levelling gets animated, dont get hyped as well, it has less substance than God of Highschool. It has really good art, i mean really good that is why it is popular (and whenever an manhwa gets adapted, you can easily comments or remarks why not SOlo levelling) which I dont know how it will translate to Animation. (probably very poorly like most adaptation).
  2. textured plastic for that satin / flatter finish. All red wings is actually the original color of the Destiny. change in decals/paint app is expected just like how the many 00 did in the past.
  3. History: FJ used to have system usage fee, it is both fixed 200 yen + percentage fee. Source: my 2014 - 2015 Order invoices. Next invoice was 2017 which already used fixed fees that is based on Protection Plan you avail (current scheme). I believe it is profitable enough since there are no changes back then until now. (irc, the change in plan happened 2016). At the end of the day, get where you can get it cheapest and reliably. IMPORTANT: if you are not buying from corporation (bandai or arcadia exclusive), I really advise you to pick the protection plan that covers fraud.
  4. a dirty DX Vf-1J at 28k yen https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1146377608&ref=list&keyword=マクロス
  5. save money and buy one on release date. Just expect that it will never come close to SRP unless you or someone you know is located in Japan. Hikaru VF-1S have similar story, it was selling out at 30k+ yen, but on release date, they can be ordered from time to time at 25k yen. I am big supporter of NY but try to admit it now until their services improved. (there are a lot of cases of order right now being delayed or not fulfilled). And ultimately, avoid Ebay.
  6. someone snagged it, along with the 2,000 yen super parts. Utsonomiya dropped it earlier, together with 20,000 opened Ozma with 21,000 Armor pack
  7. Sane expectation, just needs more time like maybe a decade or maybe a bit less
  8. irc, it has a similar system with HLJ, items arrive at warehouse, each item can be stored a set XX of days. You customized from your warehouse which you want to be shipped together (and the price you want it to be declared, which is useful for some countries that is not US for example).
  9. I thought anything not macross is not discussed in the main section, but can be discussed in the Anime or Science Fiction. Anyway, I feel Calibre Wings will never be granted any license as they have touched Harmony Gold.
  10. confirming can see the great blue color you used. Good luck on your custom
  11. Who is the lucky person who got this? https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1145570503&ref=list&keyword=マクロス&lang=en At the time of posting, there is an opened unit for 24000 yen
  12. Sales must have been bad that they have to do this to attract foreign/overseas buyers. edit: I am referring to Mandarake and its promo, which is great.
  13. https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1136428812&ref=list&keyword=マクロス&lang=en VF-1S Hikaru for 26000 yen. I want to get it but I am sure, the shipping is either soul draining or wallet crushing.
  14. He is joking. I dont know the history behind it but Mandarake has been selling merchandise without Big West sticker for 500 to 1000 yen less from time to time. It can be a. Completed item that failed the QC b. excess product that is not bought or sanctioned by bandai / big west c. some employee from the factory stole it and sold it d. there are big west sticker hoarders / collectors e. Insert stupid or legit reasons
  15. I like it since its getting close to looking like my favorite gundam, Strike.
  16. It never did sell well. It was and maybe still is shelf warming. A few months after its release, I got one for 10,000 yen in Mandarake without any missing accessories, while it is regularly sold at 14 to 16k yen for opened. I think it is a refreshing design and bought one during release window at 2000 yen marked up from SRP (From NY) back then.
  17. NY strategy changed now. they used to offer the cheapest shipped price and people are okay with the delays as long as the price is right.
  18. Not interested (another way of saying, I am broke, cant afford it) but when I saw this, I though it will be a similar stand like the one done on RG Nu Gundam. https://www.gunjap.net/site/?p=376028
  19. They are also now considering using third party Fabs. Overall pleased with this, as I know Intel will survive this. I just want more time for AMD to change the mindshare of the consumer. (people are still quoting the lead in game in high refresh rate 1080p) and OEM also has limited AMD choice. Its actually funny to see a mid tier 4500u laptop being compared and performing than a high tier laptop using Intel (though at that price, people will still get it as the high end stuff have better stuff like better panel, design, build quality etc)
  20. if you want it, buy it at this current cost. Accessories just tend to increase in price as more VF-1 toys is release and needs it. But to answer your question, nothing in excess of 11,000 to 12,000 yen.
