  1. Metal Structure Fin Funnels reopened at Nippon Yasan: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/30094-metal-structure-option-parts-fin-funnel-for-rx-93-gundam-limited-edition.html
  2. Not sure as I'm not from the US. Looking at prices from local stores (Malaysia), these seem to be in line with the marked up prices at least for the base figure.
  3. Preorders actually opened yesterday at least at Nippon-Yasan and Anime Export but at a significant mark up.
  4. Got mine in in the order history. Guess I'm done. Congrats to those who got one as well. Sorry to those who didn't.
  5. I think I got one at NY. After clicking on the Pay Later link, I got kicked out to the waiting area. But I got a pre-order pay later confirmation email from them. Does this mean my order got through? Still at waiting area...

    Bandai DX VF-31

    What's this? Has some kind of preorder madness started at NY? Seems like Nippon-Yasan now adds you to a waitlist to access their site instead of outright crashing when the traffic volume is too high?
  7. Also didn't see this posted but there is a pictorial review of the Nightingale that's been up since last week: http://blog.livedoor.jp/hacchaka/archives/52038857.html

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    Got one at NY!
  9. Managed to get an order in at Nippon-Yasan as well. Shipping at 6.3k yen.
  10. Preorder for the PG 1/72 Millennium Falcon is up on Nippon-Yasan @ 45,400 yen.
  11. Looks like Bandai's PG Millennium Falcon will be released on August 28 2017. More info here Comes packaged with the LEDs and photo-etched parts. About 680 parts and uses 3 AAA batteries.
  12. Looks really nice. Seems that the battle damaged areas are molded and there is even some detail beneath the damaged hull. Some turntable videos of the model:
  13. If they can replicate all the detailing and proportions of the original 5-foot film model, I'd be extremely happy with this (though the pricing is killer...). Judging from Bandai's 1/144 TFA Falcon model, there seems to be a lot of extra piping added to the side walls that I don't think are present in the models used in the original trilogy. Plus the 1/144 TFA Falcon has the left sidewall mirrored from the right which I think is incorrect.
  14. Looks amazing! Will absolutely be getting one. Seems to be ANH-only version though (3-landing gears, no front headlights). And the detailing on this one seems to be based on the film's 5-foot model, yes?
  15. 3rd party Steel Legend's 1/100 Kshatriya. More images here. According to this site, it's supposed to be a metal build-like figure.
  16. Also up at Nippon-Yasan: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/figures/17785-metal-robot-damashii-ka-signature-side-ms-ex-s-gundam.html
  17. Not sure if posted but here's an interesting "third-party" Aile Strike Gundam figure: https://www.facebook.com/MoShow72 Apparently it has a metal skeleton with plastic armor parts. Has light-up features too and it's 1/72 scale. According to their facebook page, it's 25cm tall and weighs 1.5kg.
  18. Managed to add the two to cart but as I hit the Pay Later button, the whole site crashed! It wasn't until about half an hour later that I discovered that my order actually got through Was such a wreck though, staring at the "site under maintenance" page.
  19. Hmm, quite interested in this new line. The posability seems much improved over the Fix line.
  20. Thanks for the confirmation, Graham. And of course, thanks for the detailed review as well.
  21. Good catch on that one. Compared to Graham's pics, other shots like the ones in Toy's Daily like this one: seem to have longer spikes. Are they retractable then?
  22. If the head is FIRMLY stuck in the neck, don't force it out or you might risk breaking one of the neck pistons (like I did). Normally, you can just gently lift the head up without excess force. If that is not the case, then one of the neck pistons might have gotten stuck in its piston socket, which is actually a hole that opens up into the cockpit. To see if this is the case, simply open up the cockpit, shine a light into it, and nudge the piston out of its hole. See the following:
