  1. It’s still there... Thanks for the info,
  2. - VF-31 is a great design - YF-25 prophecy has a nice color scheme - VF-1S Roy (looking forward the eventual DX Chogokin release)
  3. No one reported the HLJ sale? They have the VF-2ss from Evolution toys with a huge discount! (but not sure it's a good deal)
  4. Sorry to dig this thread, but I am looking for the BP8 piece. Could you share the link to shapeways?
  5. Lots of yamato fast packs for 1/48 vf. Must be clearing off for the dx’s arrival.
  6. I have bought from Mandarake several times. Their shipping team is very reliable and the condition is usually like new - unless it is specified. Usually, they will note some damage, or so, but the condition is usually much better in person. It seems they started to charge more for shipping, since they don’t ship DX vf by sal small packet anymore. They seems to use EMS and sal parcel, which is pricier.
  7. Very good idea! How is the clearance? Does the door shut completly?
  8. It's among my favorite DX, great robot mode, and cool looking jet mode. The poor sales might impact on future elvis' paint scheme.
  9. Thanks for sharing, silicon lubricant and blowdryer seem to be very good suggestions! I might try again transforming it again.
  10. I tried with a dull knife - without any luck. I guess I was lucky and the joint loosed up a little.
  11. It’s in the box ever since... It’s a shame because I like it so much!
  12. All I have to say, just be patient and don’t force it. I used transformation videos frame by frame to be sure I was not going against the joint mechanism and I finally managed to unblock it. I pull it out and pull it in, it might help loosing out the joint.
  13. I would go for the perceval if your friend do own a isamu scheme somehow (yf-19).
  14. You don't want to know... http://www.figinstock.com/
  15. I had one in my cart at CD JAPAN, but did not made it through paypal payment somehow... This is too intense for me.
  16. Practice on a junker toy before ex. dollar store. And use primer... it cost more to do so, but the result is so much better.
  17. For 50$, it's a not a bad deal... I love the die cast on them, give them some heft. But, it's probably why they are so difficult to pose. I use a clear bandai stand for posing and they are very nice display piece. But yeah, for a toy, better invest more in a DX chogokin (if you can get one) or a yamato v2 or arcadia 1/60.
  18. Great, another preorder night in perspective!
  19. I am restoring a Jetfire and the folllowing video helped a lot to figure out what is going where. Been looking for a while for something like that.
  20. I have emailed them, but they did not seems very helpful. Do you need a twitter account to see what's in stock?
