    Bandai DX VF-31

    Just when I thought Kairos and unicorns were going to be classified together as things of fiction I had a surprise at my door today. I only had to wait 370 days since I paid in full for this lovely bird. You ask what I did to get NY to ship this to me? It wasn’t the 3 friendly emails I sent to them, but rather the 4th expressing my frustration and demanding a full refund. Took a quick picture before heading off to dinner....enjoy.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Wow!!! I placed my order on 10/14 and my order number is 391306 and I still have not received any sort of preparation notice but Funkymonkeyjava did. Man I was hoping that NY shipped these out in order of when the purchase was made. I need to email these people again and find out why this is happening.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    What a beautiful bird. I’m so glad I decided to buy this.
  4. How is this any different from the one they released over a year ago. Someone in marketing said let’s rehash this tool, slap the word Premium on the outside box, and charge twice as much. Do people really fall for this marketing ploy?
  5. Reminds me when the VF-4 was going for the same price and then Arcadia re-released it at $225. Just going to wait for the re-release
  6. Thanks for the video review veef. I have to admit I'm pretty glad I didn't bite on this one. There are so many more improvements that could have been made. Going to wait for version 2.0.

    Bandai 1/35 DX VF-1

    I cant help but be worried that this beast will need to be plugged-in in order for the LED's to light up. I hope there is an option to install some watch size batteries so I can fly this thing around the house with its lights on
  8. Has anybody received an email from NY asking for payment? I thought this bird was suppose to be released at the end of August. I had pre-ordered this Valk and have yet to get an email request for payment.
  9. I honestly think another company can make this Valk look so much better so I'm going to wait for 2.0.
  10. Well I decided to use HLJ for the first time and here's the response I got back from them- Hello- This is Mark Kutsugi at HobbyLink Japan. Thank you for your recent order for Bandai's BAN992012 DX Chogokin VF-19 Advance. The stock status of that item was actually Order Stop when you placed your order. Unfortunately, a bug in our system allowed an order button to appear when that item's page was accessed through a "secure.hlj.com" URL. That bug has been corrected now. Orders are filled in chronological order. The last of our stock of this fantastically popular item has been allocated now, and we regret to inform you that it unfortunately will not be possible to fill your order. You were not charged for it, and it has been cancelled. We are very sorry about this situation. We appreciate your understanding, and hope to serve you in the future. Best Regards, Mark Kutsugi HobbyLink Japan http://www.hlj.com Has this ever happen to anyone else???
  11. Just looked at mine and I don't see one. Then I decided to watched the movie to see if one was present and it was. That sucks!!!
  12. Has anybody done a review video yet? I'm waiting to see before I decide to pay over $200 for this beast.
  13. Holy Cow!!! I used to have one of those back in the 80's.

    nice Hawt dam!!! nice stand!!!
  16. Damn!!! that is some serious leg manipulation!!!
  17. haha!!! i just noticed in the pic showing the D in the box which figure is Edgar....dam- they made sure to sculpt a belly on him. I guess for $300 they wanted to make sure they got this right
  18. Hey guys, current price at NY is $263.14 and I had pre-ordered this bird for $334.80 back then. How can I get NY to convert to the lower price? Has anybody out there been successful with such a request? Thanks in advance for any help.
  19. I personally cannot wait to see someone professionally add some weathering effects. This bird is imo one of the best looking Valks I've ever seen
  20. My God!!! Even from behind this bird looks amazing...I can't wait
  21. So next time I should place my order under yen and if the price drops they will adjust it... Okay, good to know. Thanks
  22. That's weird!!! I had pre-ordered my VF25S from NY back when it was going for $175.43 and now I get the email to pay up and the item is only $156.85. Will NY adjust it to the correct amount? I went ahead and sent them an email hoping they will honor the cheaper price.
  23. Anybody notice in the comparison pics above that the new VF-19 has a shorter nose cone. Looks so much better imo
  24. I could not agree more!!! http://s304.photobucket.com/user/nomalbill/media/VF0S0362F78C9D_zps4a36dab1.jpg.html
