  1. What is going on at hobby search https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10803881?utm_source=mkt&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20220918_1000111_summary&utm_content=10623709_font_en https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10787156?utm_source=mkt&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20220918_1000111_summary&utm_content=https://www.1999.co.jp/itbig80/10803881.jpg_more_en they have both the VF-31AX Hayate ver and VF-31J with sound pod ver on lottery ‘restock’. Registration is closed though
  2. Hobby search has yet another restock, this time is DX full armour VF-1J https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10779941 may the odds be in your favour to those that register.
  3. Oh maybe they did, that explains it, I also misread the date and thought it was late november this year. I already have one, so good luck you all that registered.
  4. Was there a reissue of the DX VF-1S Hikaru DYRL version? I saw this link https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10616645?utm_source=mkt&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20220904_1000111_summary&utm_content=https://www.1999.co.jp/itbig83/10831739.jpg_font_en
  5. I have been looking for the title of a certain movie for the longest time, in this movie there was a scene on a subway train whereby a commuter had a mini screen over his right eye watching a black and white godzilla movie. This movie I think was a some what futuristic movie. I have tried googling this for the longest time and always get links to godzilla movies instead.

    Hi-Metal R

    Opps i should watch the whole video in future, i guess the price and date was for something else.
  7. The only problem I have with mine is the display stand for storm attacker mode had a small support piece broke off, I can still put it on the stand, just that if I moved it, the macross will fall off the stand.
  8. Got mine and it seems that the tolerance issues with the wing tabs are still there, just that they are slightly better than those on hayate’s version. They can hold fighter mode, but will still pop off from time to time.
  9. After your comments I went to test fit some other stuff, It seems that the lik drakens and the missles mountings from the VF-19 will not fit on the mountings where the boosters go but they fit on the hardpoints under the wing of the AX, weird, then I tried the 3rd party 3 missle mount and single missle mount that were made from the molds of the EX-171 missles and those have no problems fitting while the others from the same set like the huge MDE, reaction missle and missle pods could not fit. But from what I see, the booster might fit the underside hardpoints abeit loose as the hardpoints on the wing fold seem too small for those I mentioned that could not fit.
  10. Seeing how the AX super boosters attach to the wing, I think I can put them on the underside hardpoints of a regular VF-31 with supers on and make a 4 booster version, I ‘ll call it a VF-31 super super, haha
  11. Hi Guy s, thanks for all the info on shaving/filing the wing pegs. I have one question before I do the same for mine, which side of the pegs are you guys shaving/filing? (In fighter mode, the side facing up or down?) We will need to fix those wing pegs when the super parts come out for these toys, I read how they were attaching to the wings and can confirm there is a hard point holes where the wing folds. If the wings are not secured at the pegs it will cause all sort of problems with the added weight at the extremities of those wings. On a better note, I do love the new cockpit, I didnt realised that they changed the design of it and the pilot now sits not so close to the front of the cockpit. Also the design has changed to a one piece ‘glass’ instead of a 2 piece one. Did they also removed the 2nd seat on it or maybe I missed something and can’t access it.
  12. Just got mine, my thoughts is that for some reason, my copy feels less solid when in fighter mode compared to the VF-31A, the stubs on the wings don’t seem to fit well into the holes in the legs that its supposed to peg into, maybe it was not transformed properly from thr factoy. Now onto what I like, I never noticed that they changed the cockpit to one piece in the promo shots, and I really like that, also they moved the pilot seat back now and it looks like it is the correct position compared to the VF-31A to S.
  13. I totally missed PO date, thank goodness its a world wide release and my local shop claims to have stock to preorder, though in the past they have taken my deposit but could get me a YF-29 back in the day when the 2nd batch was released, they did refund my deposit in full though.
  14. Too bad you can’t remove the missles except for those on the outer leg armour, aside from this, as this is my 1st VF-1 GBP this thing looks great
  15. Mine from okinland arrived today…..man is she a beauty
  16. That puts a whole new meaning of having your head up your a$$ in fighter mode.
  17. Thanks guys for all the great answers, here is hoping they get it right one day.
  18. A question to all 1D owners, is the canopy elongated compared to a standard vf-1, and also, if it’s elongated, is it elongated enough?
  19. So, I guess that stand cost 2000yen.
  20. Just realized that the AX is the same price as the new YF-29 that came with super parts, I wonder if there is something extra in it that justifies the price.
  21. When I accidentally bought 2 extra sets of movie DX SSP for VF-1 and was selling it at cost here no one wanted to bite due to me residing in Singapore and that would make shipping cost too high to bear, in the end I sold them locally for a loss of $20 usd.
  22. While I know xigfrid has one on shapeways to sell, the problem is its unpainted and not everyone is as talented as some of the members here to be able to paint and finish it to make it look somewhat passable to display them
  23. Now I can’t unsee that… Maybe they should release a TWE pack of 5 for all 5 valks, that I will buy
