Word to the wise; this is a display piece, and you'd better be gentle as all get out, or risk breaking your almost $500.00 collectible... just saying.
Points of EXTREME concern:
The canopy is attached with a thin piece of plastic that may be prone to warping over time. It does not appear to be removable. That may be a feature that will debut with the VF-1S.
The tension/resistance on that canopy hinge is practically nil. You feel just the slightest bit of grip, but not enough to hold anything in place. You have 2 options for display afaik; canopy fully opened, or completely closed.
Also my canopy is very gappy. Don't really know how to fix this, but it's not to bothersome to me.
And now the stand/base... I absolutely don't like what they went with here. The stickers are garrish, and the stability is questionable at best.
Be careful when posing this thing also. I suggest you don't choose too aggressive an angle on the adjustable connector; unless you want to send this thing tumbling God forbid!
This is polystone construction, and will look like a hot mess if you break it.
Other than the above rant, I love this thing! I really do!
