    I love the use of the hand sanitizer rubber!

    I just got a Renewal VF-27 Lucifer and was really disappointed that the legs still swing freely in robot mode.  I was hoping the renewals would have fixed this issue...

    Anyway, would this method work for the Lucifer also?

    It should work, there are other methods too... 

    You can apply any of these to the hip ball joint:

    Clear nail polish, pledge floor care finish (clear), future floor finish, or kiki fix loose joints.

    Gently apply and let dry... usually 1 or 2 coats will fix the issue, since yours is new I'd go for 1. Let dry at least 2 hours but preferably leave overnight before reassembly

  2. Hey guys!!! I noticed in my vf1 v2 1/60 yammie that one of the "intake" markings at the side of the chest piece is barely noticeable. 

    Was this a noticed QC with your copies as well? Or is it paint degradation from (bad) handling? 

    I compared it vs a brand new arcadia and the markings on that one are super red, super sharp, and you can clearly read intake at 30cm away.



  3. Just sumbled onto this topic and had to do this:

    @jeniusSir, you have all my gratitude. We can only be grateful for the time and info put into the website and channel. You have saved our lives and wallets countless times!

    Hope you efforts will continue to bring you all the success and the best of joys!

    Thank you!

  4. Hey guys sorry if this is not the right place but I've had no luck finding an old yammie v2 1/60 thread.

    I wonder what changed at Bandai. They had no hesitation releasing every type of valk variant from Frontier then; even those from Macross 30 game. My top favorite colour scheme would be the YF-25 & it only appeared for couple of seconds in the movie?

    But for Delta, quite a few have been held back.. super parts for some of the VF-31, SV-262 Elvis & Ba variant, VF-171 CF..

    Guess the market response for the Delta toys was not the same....

    Many vf31 were available afrer PO and release dates, even now you can find them unopened at reasonable prices.

    Hope this Max release will help change the trend... we need updated vf 171cf, another run of vf 31 kairos, and vf22

    The arm armor sliding mechanism is actually a part of the transformation between modes. By not sliding it, you won't be able to fold the cannons and twist the hand joint properly in Fighter mode. Remember that the Valkyrie comes in in Fighter mode so technically the armor sliding mechanism has been in correct position. The sagging arm cannon has been concluded by a lot that it's a design flaw.

    With mine one arm had the forearm armor stuck midway, so it was still possible to put everything together under the wing but the gun was just a little lower, definitely not as flush as the other side. Eventually I was able to get that armor moving and helped to have it right under the wing.

    It is not the only issue, if you push the arm full into the wing tabs, guns will point down, but if you dont, the panels wont make one flat surface.

    I am very excited for this, especially if it is a worldwide release…..makes me wonder why this is and the VF-31AX Kairos Plus releases have not been….I love that they are including the fast packs with this release.


    I hope the renewed deal allows for any previous existing valk to be distributed outside Japan, and not only for specific world wide releases with random decos...

    I just got my Hayate AX and you guys weren't lying about the QC and tolerances. I am a little heartbroken.

    If the cannons in foghter mode are pointing downwards, remember there is armor at the forearm with a sliding mechanism that needs to be pushed towards the elbow.

    This will give clearance to the cannons align properly.

  9. Easy choice between this yf 29 and ww vf 25, for me.

    Yf 29 integrates many of the feats that were developed for the vf 25 during the episodes and 2 movies. Plus it includes super parts.

    If the vf 25 had included super parts it would be a different story.

    Either way I wont be getting neither xD, I already have some of each from the Frontier era.






  10. So this happended to my yf29, dont know if its the original release or the reissue. It is not the full parts bundle recently released.

    The swivel that keeps the neck attached to the chest cracked. You will see that there are other cracks besides the one that split both in the neck piece and the chest assembly.

    It looks fixable with extreme care, but just to give you a heads up, since unfortunately this was a very tight fit to lift and lower the neck.



  11. So yesterday I read the post about the sliding forearm armor, which I wish I had read before, since it was not fully slid backwards and caused the cannon to point downwards.

    Unfortunately I thought it was glued out of possition and got me sanding the white piece that holds the cannon... 

    This already complex arm under the wing system had no need to be even more...does the forearm armor backwards or forwards really adds something?

  12. So I just got my vf 31 ax from Mandarake, which is also my first purchase without an intermediary. It said package damaged, but it is mint condition.

    At 30k + shipping Id say was a somewhat good deal, unfortunately I had to pay an import tax of 16%, so not happy with the current budget required to buy one of these.

    Shipping, I am very happy it came inside a shipping box, with bubble plastic and very well covered with paper from all sides.

    And oh boy! that new valk smell!! Arad's 31S was my last purchase so I was brought back to 2018. The box, its sad that the sleeve is gone and its just a box again.

    The toy, full of gaps, but its ok since I gave up QC on these things a long time ago, now its a "touch me and watch me break" relationship... so its the looks and paint app that has me extrmely happy!!!! Because it looks AMAZING on the shelf along the others 31 (I missed all Altos previous releases).






  13. Hey guys sorry if its not the thread to ask this

    Im about to snatch one hayate custom from mandarake using paypal...

    In your experience what do you usually recommend: using papypal's exchange rate or paying yens and then your bank's rate?? I know its very subjective but any lead will help!


  14. Hey guys!! 

    I think issues will be solved by the next release. Factories are the first to know when production went south; even when Bandai wasn't informed or didnt care, I think they can easily fix it for the next model.

    That or Bandai has gone appart of the samurai way

  15. Oh man!! that AX is so sick!!!!

    Now bandai if you please re release the 31A... do it! Do it now! Do it!! You were supposed to like our money!!!! 

    Gimme my delta wings!!!!!
