  1. $280 US price tag effectively puts the MSRP at a little over 40000 yen. That's more expensive than the Arcadia SV-51 which is only 36800 yen. 40k for a toy where Bandai absolutely cut corners in its original design and now reissued with their current level of quality control? No thanks.
  2. Bandai acting like the exchange rate is still 100:1 and hopes no one will notice.
  3. In 10 years we'll get a reissue with the scaling of the no step markings fixed. It'll be called the Recycled version, in keeping with the naming convention.
  4. Yeah with WWM releases you can get it easily from domestic shops. Dealing with PO madness like this for WWM releases is only for the impatient, the cheap, and the masochistic.
  5. It's 11 AM Japan time, so that would be October 3 at 9pm if you're in US central time. Amiami's been putting the PO for their English site the following morning for the last PO or two, possible to avoid overloading their servers.
  6. Yeah I noticed the new wing markings, but they appear to be the only new ones. Unlikely but hoping they'll add more. (More aircraft markings, that is. No more large obnoxious emblems please, Bandai.)
  7. Been busy this past week and been using what leisure time I've had at home to play on my PS5 rather than Bandai's toys of questionable quality. Haven't done much beyond taking it out and whooshing it around a few times. As mentioned already the right intake cover is bigger than the intake opening on mine and will need to be shaved down in order to fit. Gunpod is warped, just like the WWM VF-25. Lots of little areas where the paint is chipped or rubbed off, which is something that has plague Bandai's stuff since time immemorial. It does look great though, with the matte finish and blue and white livery. I mean, aside from the landing gear. I do like that they increased the tampo on it to bring it more on par with the other Delta valks. (Wish they had done the same for the upcoming VF-25F. You know, something to justify the price hike on what is essentially a straight reissue,.) I'm dreading transforming it to battroid and back to fighter, something that was already a bit of a hassle on the 29 without Bandai's recent QC problems.
  8. MSRP in 2022 is significantly higher than it was in 2012. Fortunately the yen is at its weakest in decades.
  9. This is just a repaint of the WWM 25F so I expect it'll have whatever improvements and RNG flaws that release had. Which is to say I won't be tossing my original release 25F. Bandai QC been pretty cruddy as of late.
  10. If they were going to add more detail markings, I wish they had gone all in and put it on par with Max's 29, which looks great. Just don't try to handle it.
