  1. please add a new and sleek vf-11b with atmospheric booster
  2. I have to agree that it is the best yf-19 in the market and it is way over priced. well... as i like to transform my toys, it could have been better the other option is to buy 3, one for each mode to get 100% satisfaction on this release if you want perfect yf-19 on display
  3. This YF-19 does not look like a hot seller... as it is still in stock everywhere I guess the demand is pretty low for macross plus Otherwise I have to admit that I am not happy with this bird for all reasons mentionned previously : The ankles, the wings are pretty bad and the paint issues during the transformation were way overlooked during the developpement process from Arcadia ! at this price, it just deserves a 6.5/10 My YF-19 already received a re-painting with my airbrush ! it is a bit sad to have toys that are not problem free during transformations nowadays.... Seriously, at this price I was expecting more from Arcadia
  4. what are you referring to ? otherwise, I think that the alto version would look great on the VF-25G
  5. this could be possible For those that have it : How is the blue on the regular fast pack of Michael ? Is it matte ? thks in advance
  6. the blue on the fast pack looks pretty like a matt finish, so it looks a bit wrong (the main color covers more space) Alto looks better as less noticeable regarding the sms (it is wrong like the pics with the parts separated on display)
  7. alto's version does also have cracks on the triangle : I see a begining of a crack on the right side
  8. "No paint issues that I can tell" they will come later after some transformations Bandai paints are really bad
  9. Hello David if you look closely at the way the wings lock into the leg you will see how the mechanism works please find below some pics that explain the ideas :
  10. My canopy is fine but regarding the wing, you should try to rotate the legs inward in bit it will push the wing section a bit down if it works you can glue a pre-cut piece of residual photoetch on the tab in the wing section (it would be invisible) BUT FIRST : you should check if they did glue correctly the plates that hold the wings !
  11. mine arrived in 5 days this time, using air mail with no tracking number ( last time it took 2 weeks with a tracking number ) I do not use ems anymore as here you get easily taxed it is very strange regarding the delay...
  12. oups sorry the stand is the same as the original release I was comparing it to stand of the vf-25G so only the head lasers have been revised
  13. Just the front part, it is shorter and does not need to plug into 2 attachements used to secure the legs in battroid mode.
  14. the last release of the VF-25F has 2 small corrections : - the white parts of the head lasers are real white this time - the fighter/gerwalk mode piece of the display stand has been modified
  15. For those who have the wing falling off too often : an easy nice fix can be done with fishing wire on the small peg (not the main one) wrap the wire on the small peg with the wing into position and make a good knot (wrap 3 times) * first advantage : it is not noticeable * second advantage the wings will be closer to the back pack in fighter mode and gerwalk mode * third and final advantage : the wing will stay in position during transformation as it the wing will put less pressure on the main peg ===> mine did not stay once after 5 transformations and it was enough to annoy me, so I found this trick I used 0.40mm wire for info the day you get the fast pack : remove the wire by using a sharp zacto blade ! now you can all enjoy this toy that has dreadful nipples in battroid mode
  16. thks for the info CF18 hello, I did not say that bandai made it wrong, I was talking about the original design I should have been clearer I guess....
  17. A really nice toy, still waiting for mine (It should arrive next week I think) The only thing I wish that the design could have had is : the knee parts, it looks weird without it in battroid mode Do you guys have to be really carefull during the transformation regarding the painted areas ? or is it only on the backpack that the paint tends to scratch on this release ?
  18. well, it works fine too I guess but my method is easier my personnal confidence in superglue is 50/50 it tends to cracks when fully dried when pressure is applied... superglue on ball joints for exemple does make the job at the begining but if you move a lot the articulation it tends to get loose again with time... but I play too much with my valkyries I guess but its works
  19. hello no stress I think, This is how yamato has designed the joint : a rubber part which touches the plastic part that connects the screw is suppossed to help the leg to stay in position so the articulation works from the inside with a bit of compression between the rubber and the plastic and that is why there is a small gap when you look from the outside my trick just fills the outside gap that you can see on my first pic... As long as you can turn it easily without more efforts, there is no stress I reckon
  20. Hello guys ! The VF-11B is one of my favorite I really like the gerwalk mode but the leg articultation is bad with time the legs tend to bend outwards easily and the valkyrie just collapses so I found out a trick that is really simple in order to correct this weak point of the VF-11B you only need one thing : a 0.30 mm fishing wire (the wire must not be too big as you don't have much room to fit it inside) you do not have to dismantle the toy at all You must wrap the fishing line around the joint and pull very hard and make a knot tight. the fishing line will be hidden inside and your toy will take extreme poses!
  21. thks for the reply Mine is broken unfortunately..... so if someone can help it would be great !
  22. hello Veef any chance to recast the plastic part that holds the hip bar in fighter and gerwalk mode ?
