  1. Yeah NY is the only shop I deal with that still use hand writing for shipping address. My last EMS package from them was routed to the wrong city before re-routed back to the right one, my guess was due to computer did not read the hand written postal code correctly.
  2. OMG I managed to place GX-88 order with HS and VF-1S with Amiami... CDJapan go go http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOGDS-341794 http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOGDS-341792
  3. https://hobby.dengeki.com/event/773373/ Apparently a YF-29 with super pack combo may be released in the future.
  4. Another scan. It's a must buy for me, but those extra markings on the upper legs are just weird.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    It don't looks as back heavy as VF-25S, but I would probably still use the support arms.
  6. Oh, the new launch arm stand have quite a lot of improvement over the old one. - storage space. - two extra stabilizing legs. - round plug adapter for VF-0, SV51. - no exposed screw holes on the big arm. - 4800 yen is only a bit more than the original price (around 4000 yen at 2004), cheaper than the knock off

    Bandai DX VF-31

    This is what Zenmarket.jp charges me: Final shipping from Japan will be calculated when it arrives. Order limit at Tamashii shop is 4 units per account, so that's probably why CDjapan don't even bother. They don't want to pull multiple account/address tricks unlike NY. NY specialize with these limited item, list them at attractive price and profit from their higher shipping cost.
  8. Yes Bandai reissued a bunch of older stuff for Feb and March for what ever reason. Browse around AmiAmi and you can see a bunch of Robot Spirits and a few Super Robot Chogokin (Aquarian EVOL and Giant Robo) at half price, even in pre-order status.
  9. Site front page is broken? The articles are not loading content.
  10. Why would it show up in a gunpla list? It's gone there too. http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/NEOGDS-325921

    Bandai DX VF-31

    HLJ have been messed up for a while. Back in 2017 I pre-order the Metal Build F91 and got the confirmation email. But come release time I found that it have disappeared from my order record on their site. There was no email about it until I asked: > Thank you for your order for BANN11263 Metal Build Gundam F91. Due to a stock miscount, this item actually did not have any available stock when you placed your order. As we do not expect to be able to acquire stock of this item to fill your order, your order for it has been cancelled. Only good news for me is that particular Metal Build F91 did not get crazy high market price, unlike many other Metal Build units.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    These pre-inflated price.... I managed to order VF-31E at Amiami for 20150 yen. NY initially listed it for around 19000 yen and now it is 24000 yen. I also ordered the GX-40R at NY for 22400 yen, now listed for 27500 yen at NY.
  13. Hot Toy official release. HK$ 1530, Q4 2019 http://www.hottoys.com.hk/productDetail.php?productID=664
  14. No. The UPC code on the main box and the outer box are the same. Re-issue will just have the main box at same MSRP.
  15. I can't be the only who always attempt (usually successful) to perfect transform it. From G to B: keep the swing bar connected, attach the hip bar to nose, don't lock the chest, disconnect the swing bar and fold it into chest, lock hip bar and chest.
  16. I don't recall any 1/48 with V1 or V2. Only 1/60 have completely different V1, V2, and V2 had sub versions. with improvements.
  17. https://imgur.com/a/0IgbZjr You can keep the gun strap in fighter mode, if you are willing to extend the gun pod a bit and leave the arms a bit loose. - don't push the arms into the tabs. Fighter mode adapter still attach OK but it will put a bit pressure on the forward gun strap pin. Gun still stay above ground with land gears out.
  18. The funniest part of the manual is gerwalk step 2 - open the air brake when deploy the leg. Totally not needed unless you are re-enacting the animation.
  19. For those that still haven't seen enough. https://imgur.com/a/8hR3nmS My copy have no major issue. I found the clicky hinge under the intakes sounded differently between two legs - one is tighter and one is more lose, but not lose enough to cause problem.
  20. https://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/4660/Full+Action+Model+Chamber.html Chamber from Gargantia. Not really related to FMP but the Chamber A.I. reminds of ARX-7/8's Al .
  21. Zenmarket delivered, thanks F360 for pointer. Manage to fit 14 Robot Spirits into one Detolf shelf.
  22. Can the head drop down and acts as a turret in F and G mode?
  23. Guys, don't hate on the small shops too much on the added shipping cost. The bonus stand added 33% size to the box, but I think Bandai probably just gave everyone the regular release size data, since the re-issue will be that size with the same UPC code. Those small shop are not going to eat the cost which is not their fault.
