Got the 22's from eBay, both from same seller in US so saved a bit on shipping.

All the F stuff was from NY.

My NUNS triangles are intact, just trying to figure out how to transform and add the armour parts.

The Old Man is getting all the Valkyries he can get his hands on. Good haul this month. I wish I could get stuff at that rate.

Yeah I've had a good month, winding down now though. These things don't appear to come down in price lol!

I always take the shoulder paultrons off before transforming my VF-171 because I have the feeling that rotating the shoulders around 270 degrees and try to align everything in Fighter-Mode causes too much stress at the black triangles. ^_^

Good advice thanks.

One has popped off on me anyway!

Put the pauldrons back on and one is looser than the other. Assume that's just a bandai-ism.

My Yamato VF-1A CF arrived from hkcollectibles today. I was notified of a stock error earlier in the week and was expecting a delay, but hkc fixed it up quickly and upgraded my shipping from airmail to EMS at no cost. This is the 30th anniversary DRYL type, and my first VF-1A. I'm really impressed with the paint and do not mind the missing ARMD-01 tampo on the tail fins (vs Prometheus for the TV type).

Revisiting this design has me hooked all over again. :D

I'm on vacation in Japan. Went to Nakano Mandarake and picked up a RVF-25. Good day.

Jealous. Japan is certainly on my wish list of places to visit one day (soon).

I got it on Jungle back on Monday or Tuesday. Mine was brand new and smelled plasticy fresh. :D

Another one popped up on Man Thursday night for a bit less money but it had been opened. It was pretty late at night so.

Jesus I remember when I had a chance to buy 2 different sets of the M & M 1Js, I personally didn't like them, I mean they were cool but I just don't double dip on molds and I don't buy repaints, but looking at them now, they would have been a very wise investment, they are selling for some pretty stupid, crazy, ridiculous prices.

I paid about 40 above what the new retail will be if they re-issue it., and then normal EMS shipping + 10 bucks.

I don't think that's astronomical.

Considering Arcadia asks $150ish for a valk now, and super parts trend around $110 dollars or more, and if they throw in extras... it could be $260-300 easy for a reissue + shipping.

Plus, they might leave out something Yamato added to save or cut costs like they did with the Focker and Hik releases.

I overpaid a bit but it's worth it in my mind as it could be another 6 months before we even get M&M's from Arcadia.

Anything in the 400+ range would be a bit crazy imo.

It definitely sounds like you got a hell of a deal, anytime I see either M&M they are usually going for 500-700$ each.

I think I did ok.

The one that went up on Man in the middle of the night was only $220 but used.

And as I posted earlier in the thread I saw one sell close to that on YJ with some fading/paint missing.

Either way I'm just happy to have one. I've been wanting one for close to a year hahah
