I really want a YF-21 now!!!

Get one now!! When the Arcadia YF-19 came out I had so many chances to get one at $180 :( Now i had to pay more and get the fast pack separately. :rolleyes: Either supply is drying up or I suck at finding a good deal :lol:

Yup. Get YF-21 now. Then sell it later if Arcadia decides to redo it. That's what I'm going to do with my other one. Even if I need to sell it cheap. Coz I got it bargain too. ^_^

If I can find one for a good price I might have to grab one. The VF-11B & 21 were my favorites from Mac Plus.

I have a VF-11B & did reserve Bandai's VF-19 Advanced, so a YF-21 would complete this part of my collection! B))

Picked up another fine little addition to my ever growing Yamato Girls collection! This time it's the lovely Kiryuu Mikage! :)

Awesome!!! You should put an updated pic off your Yamato Girls collection.

Waited for this guy for over a year. Best of my collection so far.

Well hey if no box isn't an issue to you and the Valk itself is prefect then you're laughing! The 11c ask a premium these days and i haven't seen any under the $300 price point. $240 is great especially for a buyee auction including double shipping and fees! Nice catch mate! :) Edited by spanner76

Sounds about right....loose collectibles tend to lose anywhere between 30-50% of current market value...the VF-11C commands about $400+ for MISB (after proxy fees and shipping)...

Welcome to the VF-11C owners club......

It's funny, the VF-11C was a shelf warmer for the longest time.....market price-wise it is now the king of the cannon fodders!!! :)

Now I have to wait for international shipping fees.....I think 30 dollars maximum. ..still a good deal I think.

also I bought a 17D....I really want this 2 to complete the M7 line from Yamato.

Got in the VF-11B earlier this week! I never thought it would happen, but I've finally completed the 1/60 Macross Plus series; seeing them all together in my collection brings a tear of joy to my eye... ;_;

Finally acquired a YF-21, fast pack will be coming from Japan with the final valks from this macross splurge. BTW i find it odd that the manual didnt come taped to the back as its common with yamato stuff. Was this just mine or all of them were like that on the reissue?

*snip*

Grats on the YF-21, anubis! When you get your FAST packs though, I would strongly advise considering leaving the arm/tail packs off. My YF-21 arrived with FAST packs attached, but I think the 21 looks best nude :D (you also need to have the arm packs off in order to transform), so last night I finally went to take them off for the first time. Belly plates came off easily enough, but man, removing the arm packs had me sweating bullets!

That's Jim Raynor from Starcraft 2. Iron Man movie stole Starcraft armor up sequence in their movie. The armor actually lights up.

Are you planning to buy the Tychus? I think they look great but there is no place for such a figure in my collection. Figma or S.H.Figuarts Starcraft toys would be right up my alley. :D

I wanted to but maybe I'll get him later. I would love if they can come up with the other characters like ghost Kerrigan or Nova and Zeratul.

Light up and let's burn some zergs.

Whoa whoa whoa... Did I read that right? Back in the day I got mine for around $200 it was the most expensive Valk I had Purchased up to that point, and now they go for 300 or more?

I've seen them for over $400! I do like them of course but not enough to pay the premiums they asking now.. occasionally you can stumble across a fairly priced example but you gotta be on the ball to catch it!

Picked up my recent VF-11C for only 25k yen (about $210). Of course that was done in person at the Akihabara Mandarake. They have quite a lot of stuff in store that they never bother to list on the Web.

This landed today, B grade from Jungle. Box is slightly damaged from when it has been opened before but the armour is perfect.

Looks so badass on the valkyrie!

Only worry was they declared it as 2k jpy for customs, good news no VAT or duty worrying if it had gone missing

Is that Ellie from the Last of Us? B))

Yup. Custom sculpted head by Kai Studio and it was their last piece. I am waiting for the blue jeans and black converse sneakers. The body is a modified Play Toy figure. The big ass and boobs have been removed and the legs shortened. Joel will be next. Iminime used to sell a set of Joel and Ellie for $900.

Got this guy from JUNGLE today. Looked brand new with the tape on the landing gear doors and on the tip of the wings. Sadly out of the box i was greeted with cracked shoulders. Anyone ever dealt with jungle in one of these cases?

Currently sitting in the medical bay having its shoulders repaired. :D

I got a Super Ostrich marked... A- I think? And it had cracked shoulders.

Honestly I don't think Jungle checks or cares. I think they only look at box ware and if it's yellowed or not. They might not even know about cracking shoulders, or want to know - so buyer beware.

I think they offered to have me return it on my dime for a refund, but that's it.

I just kept it and got legit replacements.

Probably won't buy anything from Jungle again - not because Super Ostrich v2's will all have cracked shoulders eventually, but because they don't inspect stuff - so who knows what you're getting. Their grading system is pointless. Throw that in with their padded shipping costs and it's not worth it. It's sad too because they were pretty solid a few years back on their pricing.

That's probably as new as you can possibly get one of the first edition strike Roys, sounds like it was never removed from the box at all. Grats on a good find, though sorry you got hit with the broken shoulders 6 years after the fact.

It would be nice if the shapeways replacements came in a matching color of plastic, but at the very least, those problems are not terribly hard to repair, even without using brand new parts.

@Anubis20 nice pickup mate! Pity about the shonky shoulder joints.. good you could repair them though!

I've made quite a few orders now through Jungle and its been pretty good and consistent actually. The only issue i had was an item marked sealed which it clearly wasn't but the Valk itself was mint. Dont think there has been any other issues. But i guess buying from any place that on sells 2nd hand items you always run the risk of something not being 100% or what you fully expect. I have had the odd annoyence buying things from Mandarake which are meant to be very fastidious with what they chose to sell so the potential for issues is not localized to any one particular seller..

Either way they are both pretty fantastic and most of us couldn't support our Macross collection without them! :)

Anubis20, you had a replacement shoulder hinges handy or something? I guess its good to have spares...

If you don't mind me asking, how much did that set you back? I got Alto's for about $300 around Christmas (Amazon.com). Don't have Ozma yet, and am curious how small my chances of getting his armor are....
