I would like these but can never divert funds for them. Always an actual toy to buy all the time. Haven't been able to keep up new releases.
I tweeted to Mr K asking if they still plan to release it. He said it was possible. That tweet was years ago though.
So BBTS has the 0D up.
Unfortunately like the 0S there is a significant markup to the Japanese price.
I think i just wait for release and risk getting one from mandarake.

I don't think I have ever been able to find a Tamashii Stage Act Trident or Trident Plus stand for a decent price (less then $20 US). I'm not paying $40+ for one.
Here's a link to a 3 pack of Stage Act 5 on Amazon.com for $25. There is a 2 pack for $21.98, but you know...
TAMASHII NATIONS Bandai Act.5 for Mechanics Clear Action Figure
The 2 pack was $9.99 back in 2019 and the 3 pack was $10.53 back in 2017!
Wow I just looked up the trident stand and am surprised to see the crazy prices people want for them. Why doesn't bandai re-release it?
Still available. Wish i could grab another but a one only limit.
Got it. YES!

Ok. Just want to correct my original post. It wasn't stated if it's AM or PM. Not sure if Amiami is using military time. It can be 11am or 11pm.
As of this post, it's 7:46am now in Japan. March 2nd. Try to check the Amiami link above if it's going to work in 3 hours. If not, then check back after 12 hours from it. Right now, out of those links posted above, Amiami is your best chance to place an order. Hope that helps.
I'm so bad at time conversion. So i should check at 6pm PST and then 6am PST?
Damn i missed this. I didn't even know about this release. One day i'll get an orguss.. i hope.
Didn't they advertise these vf-1s as PF when they first came out. Did anyone get the first releases and can confirm? I'd only be interested in KO if it had PF markings.

It’s showing there currently, try refreshing
i can see it. i hit reserve andf it shows one item in my cart but when i go to my shopping cart its empty. I try to add it again and its says there's a one item limit and i already have one in my cart. ARghhh.
I try to get one from hobby search and add it to cart but when I go to the cart it’s empty. Anyone else having this issue.
Anyone have some comparison pics between the VF-IS heads? What to see how different the head is for the new release.
I found this in drawer the other day. I have no ver 1s anymore so I’m giving this away. You just pay for postage. I can only do this for US and Canada. Sorry.

Not need to wait:
Avilable at AmiAmi for 31,700 yen https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-002551
Was this the price it was originally released at? I honestly don't remember.
Hell has frozen over, Macross 7 finally gets a western release.
I was so pissed that no one released it back when it was first announced. I actually bought the japanese LaserDiscs so i could watch it. Eventually got the vhs fansubs from the internet the old way (mail a money order in) tape by tape.
Ahhh the good old days.

I was a bit bothered by the black ankles in this WWM VF-25. Looking closely it appears to be black molded plastic. I always thought they were full metal items on the older VF-25s, but I guess they are nicely painted metal-finish items after all.
Oh wow. I just checked my WWM vf-25 and it is plastic. That really bugs me now.

You can just spray it mat coat with it and also it protect your vf longer from yellowish plastic.
I’m not confident in my abilities to do that without screwing it up.
Got mine today. It's amazing what a matte finish does to this mold. It's looks so much better. I want reissues of the old vf-25s with this matte finish.

Put this into perspective. We have to pay CBSA fees on top if the purchase when it comes into Canada from overseas. If you want to, then get it from the States and your still being dinged with CBSA fees anyways.
We get hosed in everything that comes into North of the 49th. If you don’t want to pay the high price of collecting stuff overseas, then fly overseas and get it yourself if your that desperate.
I’m well aware the cost of collecting, I’ve been here for over 15 years. I was referring to how much more ethe markup the himetal is in comparison to the early vf25 release. I’m not sure why it was necessary to make a snide comment about me going overseas if I’m that desperate. I’m hardly desperate and the comment doesn’t even make sense. I can comment on the price being trash.

Only an obsessed weirdo would do such a thing to straighten the head lasers. Like me.
I actually had some success using masking tape to fix the bendy head lasers.
I couldn't stand the warped to the side head lasers for my rod yf-29b. So in fighter mode i used masking tape to tape the lasers to the fuselage straight. It didn't seem to be working and i forgot about it and left it on display for years. I recently moved so I was packing up my valks and then I noticed after removing the tape that the head lasers were straight. Only took 3 + years. LOL!

Thanks for the link...Will give them a shot...they did charge me tax (IL) and I went for standard shipping (10-15 day v 2-3 day Priority Mail delivery) ....total was some change over $150 using a code I found....First10
If they reject it, I'll cancel and just wait for a better deal...used CC in case of any PayPal shenanigans post 90 days....Clipboard!
Do they require upfront payment?

Wow that price is trash. So much for getting these collectibles cheaper. It's cheaper to go to the japan sites.
Bandai DX VF-1A ANGELBIRDS [TWE]
Hate when that happens.
I had that happen with the 31J. It didn't seem like it was coming. I checked the usual sites and couldn't find the preorder anywhere. I was like i guess i forgot to preorder it so i bought one off mandarake. A month later it shows up at the door. LOL! I wish i could remember who the order was placed with. It might have been Lunar. Can't remember for sure though.
