  1. Interesting in hindsight i realize i had the same problem. Was never able to separate the chest without the head coming off. I just assumed i was having an off day transforming it. Seeing your video makes me realize it is a fit issue.

    I remember the early days of ebay. Retailers would list their unsellable stock for cheap and you would find something you were looking for at a great price. Now they throw their stuff up at collector prices.
  3. Yeah I've been waiting for the tan Delta version. Surprised they never released it.
  4. Hmm I need to handle my AXs more. I haven't encountered any of these issues but they've also pretty much been on display since I bought them.
  5. What a joke i have to wait till July 10th to put a case in. Just gives him more time to run off with my money.
  6. Just as i feared. My instincts were right.

    Ok i got it to the way you have it. The hinge was super stiff and i had to use some force to get it down. Super scary. I was worried about breaking it. That being said i still don't like how high the tailfins are. The one flaw of the hi-metal design but otherwise an awesome toy. Thanks for your help @sh9000 and everyone else who replied. I love this forum.

    Can you guys remind me if it’s normal for the tail fins be this high up. I feel like it’s sitting too high but I can see no obvious way to lower it. And yes I already slide the backpack back.

    It's interesting to me that everyone says the canopy has a blue tint. I see green. Is there something wrong with my eyes? I know I'm not color blind. LOL!
  10. Do you have an estimated eta?
  11. LOL! Well I don't want to do that. I'm happy to pay for it if it comes. The frustrating issue is I'm going to have to wait a month or two to realize it's not coming. Then i get to file the claim. I'm more annoyed about my money being tied up over 2+ months. I've been through this situation at least 3 times over the last 3 years. I'm getting good at spotting these guys. They start off with high positive feedback which makes you feel safe buying from them. Then they list an item at a really good price (almost too good to be true). Then a month later you start seeing the negative feedbacks come in. These sellers are getting smarter as time goes by. First they just wouldn't ship the item. Then they gave out fake tracking numbers, Then they started shipping out small lego pieces to fool the buyer into thinking their item is on the way. All for stalling for time so they can get as much money as they can before the jig is up. Anyway lets hope for the best.
  12. I broke down and bought 2. Figured i'll get my money back from paypay anyway. So it's been like 6 days and no shipping notification. I message him and this was the response: LOL! Needless to say, I don't have high hopes receiving the valks. I expect I'll be filling a PayPal claim in the future.
  13. Oh wow. Surprised they went with sunrise instead of the perceived shoe in satelight. I wonder what the reasoning was? And what Kawamori thinks of this? With the way Delta ended up, I will give sunrise a chance. I have a feeling this move was triggered by toy sales and the desire to expand it. Weather that translates into a good show, we'll see. I hope they don't go alternate universe like Gundam.
  14. Another 10 was put up. Another reason to be suspicious...
  15. That's actually the price point I would pay for the KO Vf-1. Those I'm suspicious it's so cheap with free shipping. I wonder if this will be one of those sellers that never ships and suddenly inactivates his account. Anyone you ordered one please keep us updated.
  16. The gold parts look more yellow than gold. Hope it's more of a camera thing, I want the gold trim rather yellow since i missed out on the prior release.
  17. I haven't encounter that but now i'm worried. Going to have to check all my 25s and 29s.
  18. I think there was a replacement piece you could get from Shapeways. I've had this happen to 2 of my vf-25 gunpods. Both A models I think. They made them super tight that they break when you try to open them. Not sure if the item is still in shapeways. It was years ago it was offered.
  19. I thought I was the only person to remember Ring of Red. Would've been a great game if not for what you said about rounds taking forever.
  20. Never thought i'd be able to retire the vhs fansubs of M7. Then the digital fansubs came and thought that was it. Now at last finally a official release. I'm going to support the f*** out these releases. May buy duplicates even.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. I tweeted to Mr K asking if they still plan to release it. He said it was possible. That tweet was years ago though.
