  1. Huh. What's your asking price for a recast of this? Because of the stiffness with how it broke, I have very little confidence that a super glue job would suit this if I ever attempt to open/close the gear doors again. Let me know.
  2. You betcha. Snapped clean off. I have felt like this particular Valkyrie has required a bit more force to transform than I usually apply. Some of the joints were VERY tight - especially the chestplate separation into battroid mode. It's pretty unlikely I can repair this landing gear door since it's supposed to be a moving part. There's a big part of me which just feels like I have learned a lesson and will wait to see if Bandai will do a proper DX VF-1J Max.
  3. I gave in and bought a KO Max super VF-1J. Although I have never had any of my official Valkyries do this, one of the landing gear doors broke on my KO... Not sure it can be easily fixed.
  4. I continue to pray (and even plead) for news on EZY... I needs mah Patlabor fix.
  5. Pardon me for not being aware if the answer has already been stated, but is there any word on whether a Super VF-1J in Max colors will be forthcoming this year?
  6. Still need this... Perfectly willing to do $100 shipped for a perfect leg.
  7. Huh. Do you have any photographs of this? I wonder if it'd be possible to transplant parts into an existing bad leg in order to make one good leg?
  8. Still needing a leg... I'd gladly negotiate a price or a trade for it. Someone please help me fix my Valkyrie?
  9. So... any word on a premiere date for EZY?
  10. Would really appreciate any help or leads with this. I've struck out everywhere I've turned thus far.
  11. Oh? And what could I offer you for a replacement leg? Please let me know?
  12. Yeah, but I actually really want to keep this one since I previously only had the Yamato Nora version. And the deal I got on this was pretty unbelievable, so it's kind of special to me now.
  13. Thus far, I don't think that they are willing to help.
  14. Still need replacement parts. Anyone...?
  15. Still in need of a replacement leg... I reached out to the original owner and he indicated that he bought it from HLJ, but he's not able to provide a receipt. (Makes sense, as you wouldn't just give some stranger your payment info. I don't begrudge him that.) When I contacted HLJ previously, they were unwilling to help unless I had purchased the unit from them. Anybody know if HLJ records serials of units sold so that it could be verified in that manner? I'm really grasping at straws here.
  16. OK, here are more clearer photos.
  17. Here's a photo of my SV-51. Using the numbering system, my leg #4 (which is attached to the Valkyrie) is bad. I believe that I need a leg #3 to replace it. Insofar as I am aware, I don't think that I can replace leg #3 with leg #1. Maybe I'm not entirely clear on how the manufacturing defect occurred or what's involved to swap the parts, but I don't see how I can swap a right leg with a left leg.
  18. I'm not sure that I understand what you mean...? The one which I need appears to be the third (from the left) green check. The one which I currently have is the same one circled in the photo above. Are you saying that you have the first green check and the blue X? If so, I may not be clear on how it's possible to swap out a right leg with a left leg?
  19. May check there next, if that's the case. The listing did indicate that the seller "thought" that the legs were correct, but they definitely are not. I can see why someone might not know, and for only $150, it's absolutely not worth my making a claim and sending it back.
  20. Haven't attempted to yet, but may wind up giving that a try if nothing else comes through. I am thinking that I might be able to ask a MW friend in Hong Kong if they would be wiling to receive it for me and then relay it here to the USA. Was just hoping to go a more direct (not to mention quicker) route before resorting to such measures.
  21. Fighter mode, starboard side. (Battroid mode, right leg.) It's the same issue as shown in this fantastic Scorched Earth Toys video. Full credit to owner, not mine!
  22. Attempted to ask if HLJ would be willing to sell me a replacement leg even though I didn't purchase from them. The answer, sadly, was "no." So, back to trying to find another way...
  23. Recently acquired a barely-used Arcadia SV-51 which seems to be suffering from the leg assembly error. Does anyone have any extras which they would be willing to sell? Please let me know. Thank you!
