  1. Looking for a Yamato 1/60 VF-1S Roy or Hikaru DYRL with an intact rainbow canopy, preferably under $200. There are a few on ebay at this price but I'd rather pick one up from a fellow board member first.

    Hi-Metal R

    With all this VF-4 goodness let's not forgot about the upcoming VF-1D. Just got an email from Amazon Japan with the following good news: ご注文いただいた商品と新しいお届け予定日は以下のとおりです。 "HI-METAL R 超時空要塞マクロス VF-1D バルキリー 約140mm ABS&PVC&ダイキャスト製 塗装済み可動フィギュア" お届け予定日: 2019-04-23 - 2019-04-26 "Dear Customer: We are pleased to report that the item(s) in your order indicated above will be sent sooner than expected. When your order is shipped you will receive an e-mail message confirming the date, contents and method of shipment." So it does appear to confirm everyone's suspicions that the VF-1D is coming out sooner than expected.
  3. If the Yamato 1/48 TV Max & Kakizaki VF-1A were Chronicles mail-in exclusives, how were local shops able to order them for sale? I thought the only way to get one was through the Macross Chronicles magazine mail order? On this very website, under the releases schedule it lists both of these releases as made-to-order. Not trying to be a smartass... I legitimately want to know because I wasn't in the game back then. I'm trying to get the elusive Kakizaki but he never pops up for sale so I'm over the moon to hear Max is next because I'm praying that Kaki will be the third release and then I'll finally be able to finish my Vermilion team in 1/48 scale!
  4. Wow, you guys make me feel so much better about my spending habits lately. Whenever I feel guilty about what I just bought or the inevitable lecture from the warden -- er, I mean wife -- I come to this thread to feel better. Speaking of which, two more hard-to-find valks down... only five canon valks left to go in 1/48 or 1/60 scale; too bad the remaining ones are as rare as pink unicorns and cost more than both of my kids' college funds combined! PS: Shizuka: your ambiguous comment has my dirty mind wandering, and now I feel like I need to take a long cleansing shower...
  5. The most annoying thing is that I bought one on eBay earlier this week using the 15% coupon. Thought I scored and finally completed my 1/48's: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamato-Macross-magazine-mail-order-limited-model-1-48-VF-1A-Valkyrie-figure-TV/143166151592?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 But then the next day I saw the exact same item posted on YAJ, same pics and everything: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/g335320051 The auction had until this morning (Sunday) to close. I had a feeling the seller was waiting to see how much he could get and then cancel the lower one. Sure enough, at almost the exact same time as the end of the YAJ, I get an email through eBay from the seller that it was no longer available and offered to send me a similar item or full refund. That's not cool. I used the BIN option on eBay on Tuesday and he should've ended the YAJ listing that day, but he let it ride. WTF?! And here's another funny thing: the dude did the same thing with the TV 1/48 Max: eBay (still active!): https://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamato-Macross-magazine-mail-order-limited-model-1-48-VF-1A-Valkyrie-figure-doll/143166147972?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 YAJ (ended this morning): https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h384218130 I know there's one on Manda right now but looks like it may be missing parts. Hoping someone here may be bored of theirs and is willing to share it with another collector.
  6. Looking for either Yamato 1/48 VF-1A Hayao Kakizaki TV or DYRL versions. The TV version was the Macross Chronicles version. The DYRL is the standard release (green stripe). Please let me know if you have either one complete and willing to sell. EDIT: Found DYRL version.
  7. Smooth transaction with @Raya1823 as a seller. Good communication and fast shipper. Recommended seller!
  8. @Shizuka the Cat I did downsize a lot of my collection, but the Virgin Road is one of the last ones I'm missing (and I see it for sale even less than the Ostrich). Only two more to go (Angel Birds and Cavaliers) and my 1/60's are done!
  9. Thanks to @Jasonc for a smooth transaction. Excellent communication and item was shipped out very quickly. Also, another great transaction with @warrhead, whom I've already done business with numerous times.
  10. Does anyone have any leads to re-casted or 3D-printed fast packs for the YF-21? I have two YF-21 reissues that didn't come w/ the FP. There are plenty of listings on eBay for the older Fold Booster and FP for the YF-19, but the only way to get the YF-21 FP is to buy the now ridiculously expensive newer YF-19/21 Fold booster FP set.
  11. FINALLY got one of my grails that I've been chasing since starting Macross collecting a year ago: It's been panel lined and a bit yellowed, but this one doesn't come up very often for sale. I know it's only temporary, but will do the peroxide treatment once summer rolls around. Just one more to go now, but it's gonna be near impossible to find: anyone wanna sell me a 1/48 VF-1A TV Hayao Kakizaki?
  12. I heard a lot of online orders were mysteriously canceled by GS so glad you were able to keep your order. Totally agree w/ you about the supporting cast. I'd buy Shredder and a bunch of foot soldiers too after seeing these guys.
  13. I normally don't collect things other than Macross, Transformers and Voltron but was kicking myself for passing up the SDCC movie TMNT set last summer even though I stood in line w/ a friend who got a set. Thank goodness for this general release at Gamestop. Looks like these sold out just as fast as the SDCC set and they are going for double the price on scalp bay already. Anyone else here collect these or got a set?
  14. Count me in on parts if you do part it out. I need the wings and heat shield cover.
  15. Thank you for responding, and for your offer. Much appreciated!
  16. Looking for a used Yamato 1/48 VF-1A south of the $150 mark, any variant. Can be loose, beat up, discolored/yellowed, broken or junker. Just as long as it's complete. Same goes for super/strike parts if available. Need for a custom project. EDIT: Found 1. Need one more (preferably a TV VF-1J Hikaru -> less paint to strip/remove)...
  17. If the OP isn't interested, what are you asking for this VF-1S strike/super valk shipped?
  18. I used premixed developer 40 hair gel cream. The cream is viscous and thick so it's easier to apply. This is the one I used. Hope that helps.
