    I thought SAL actually stood for Surface Air Lifted, meaning it will go by Air between countries. AFAIK, it isn’t available as an option to the States yet but when it was, it generally took a couple weeks for me. Ferry takes 2-3 months. 

    I guess I don't know which way it will come.  I imagine they wouldn't have let me choose it as an option if it wasn't available.  I'm assuming it will come by boat, in which case the 2=3 months is probably correct.  Maybe a little longer because of Covid

    SAL by boat takes about 2-3 months .. .. but probably around 4 months now

    That's what I figured was going to happen.  It's been about a month.  I expected at least 2 months, possibly 3.  What's another month LOL, it'll get here eventually.

  3. Has anyone shipped SAL from Japan to the USA?  I had a Jungle order and they gave me that option so I chose it to catch a break on the shipping costs.  I wasn't in a super hurry to get it so taking a little longer was fine with me.  Does anyone know the current approximate time it takes with that option?

    All in !


    Are some of those customs?  I have a Yamato 1/60 VF-1S low viz coming and I wasn't sure which one of yours is the same one.  I'm just wanting to see how the colors look in different lighting.

    Not only a unicorn, but a prodigal son returning.
    I was in the OG Low Vis Owner's Club back in the day.  Unfortunately I had to sell it when my ex destroyed our finances.
    I found a local dealer who had two of them, worked with him before at a couple of toyshows and cons.
    Imagine my surprise when I opened it and found my mark on the inner tab.
    My baby is home.





    That's a great story!  Glad you were able to be reunited!  A great looking Valkyrie

    I believe that it is a really good design for both fighter and battroid, the Gerwalk is strange, but the real beast is trying to transform the DX toy.  Who knows what the new movie will bring to us as far as new DX toys....one can hope.


    I've been reading about the frustration of transforming that one.  I guess Battroid isn't so bad.  I think it's the head design that I don't like.  I hope you're right and they come out with some cool new designs.  Though hopefully not too many :lol:I'm still trying to catch up with older releases! :D

    Wow, really makes me wish they would improve/revise the SV-262 DX mold and given us more variants.


    ^^This.  I love the fighter mode of this Valk.  Not crazy about the Battroid mode though.

    I hope Bandai chokes on excessive stock for forcing people to buy the same toy again just for an accessory that should have been included in the first place. 

    Damn right.  It's one thing to make a second version with minimal changes but to make a third?  That's just being greedy.  If it's like everyone has been saying, if releases have been coming slow from them lately the least they could do is release something completely new.  Like a Max VF-1S or something cool like that.

    For a lot of people saying they weren't going to get this, it sold out of AmiAmi quick.


    Because flippers need to be able to make a living.  By paying normal MSRP prices we'd be taking food right out of their mouths :lol:

    Finding those grails from your wish list might be harder now that most of everyone is keeping them @Special Sauce. Don't know if @Kicker773 has some left for grabs or it is all gone.

    There was a Stealth 1J with the SSP all in the box on Manda for 22k yen (box pitted to hell) at one time and someone has gotten it. DHL shipping wasn't a factor as that collector wanted it badly and got it (might paid close to 50k yen complete for everything when said and done). 

    I'll just be patient and wait for a good deal to come along.  They periodically turn up so I'm not that worried I won't be able to get one.  DHL isn't the only shipping available anymore either now that things are starting to loosen up.

    Out of curiosity, what sites do most of you use for ordering these? I know it's an age old question, I'm just curious to see where people go, so that I can figure out where other options are.

    This thread is probably the most comprehensive one you'll find for where most of us are finding our stuff.  At the top of the first page you'll find a nice list.
