Have any of you who ordered from Overdrive received yours?

The tracking for my VE-1 has said "Awaiting presentation to customs commissioner" since the 21st. <_<

yeah, I got mine through them. Was only in customs for a few hours and usps delivered it the next day.

I was with a friend today, admiring the VE-1. We were totally blown away by the VE-1 :lol: A question came out, how do you land the VE-1 in fighter mode, the pilot must be exceptionally good not to damage the electronic panels below the undercarriage when landing !

That should not be an issue in space. The fast packs and sensor equipment might be jettisoned. I would imagine a VE-1 could come back to the SDF-1 in battroid or gerwalk mode or even in fighter mode maneuvering like the space shuttle docking at the int'l space station.

Actually, you can rotate and swivel the bottom sensor pack into a position which would easily allow a pilot to land normally, and you can display it with the landing gear down and all the parts attached....I just did it the other day! ^_^

And I just got mine yesterday. Not sure how long I've been waiting on it, but I ordered two other VF-1's with it.

Only problem I've had is that the antenna arm armor was put together backwards. Luckily there's a screw underneath to reverse the arm clips. Nothing like having a VE-1 with antenna poking out its rear.

The antenna assembly swivels so it can face the right way for battroid and fighter

while i was gawking at my VE-1, i couldn't help but think that a TV ver. VF-1S Roy would look nice having the same gray color as the VE-1...

Damn you all! Your galleries of Elint goodness made me break down and order one from Overdrive. I had to promise to REALLY outdo myself on my wife's Christmas gifts this year in exchange for her letting me get this. lol

Got an email from Overdrive this morning reporting that they where preparing my VE-1 & VF-1D (VR) for shipment. Anyone get the Vrigin Road yet?

Got my VE-1 today. This is possibly the most beautiful Valkyrie I've yet seen from Yamato. I have the old V1 Elintseeker from back in 2004...and this V2 is a complete departure from Yamato's first attempt. The tampo-stamping on the new Elintseeker is impressive, just about as prolific as the VF-1J Mass Production's tampoed details. The forearms of the Elintseeker are slightly different from the standard fighter model, which is a nice touch. The decals that are included allow you to customize your Elintseeker to a degree. You don't necessarily need the "eyeball" decal on the FAST Packs. You also have the option of using the standard red/white fighting kite Macross symbol or a low-viz gray version of it instead.

Like some other people have already mentioned, the copilot is a tight fit, and requires a little bit of coaxing to get him into the cockpit, but the pilot fits just fine. Most of the photos in this thread show the yellow on the front of the sensor rectenna and the boosters to be a really bright banana yellow, but in person, the color is somewhat muted. I like the added color accents, personally.

A not-so-defenseless Elintseeker...

I like how the lower sensor array folds up sideways on the undercarriage, but it has a nearly nonexistent clearance sort of like the GU-11 has on a standard fighter with FAST Packs.

there is a better way to do it where there is clearance...a page or 2 back there is a good pic of it. ^_^

I SO almost went with the light grey Macross kite on the FP's....Glad someone did IT!!!

Thanks for your review man!

I am ordering mine as soon as my classes are over. 3 more weeks. Then I get to order, and wait another 3 weeks. But damn. I'm stoked. This looks like the best version of this toy to date!
