Kept putting off on getting DX VF-1 TV Roy until it got to a reasonable price for me at ¥24k then pounced on it on Manda.

Nice one! I enjoy browsing manda; it’s hard to resist some of the stuff that pops up :)

Such a good deal, I couldn't pass it up! I normally don't buy Valks without the boxes but I made the exception for these. :D

^Nice set.

Thanks. The same guy you're getting your HMR VF-1A's from hooked me up on these, top notch packing!

Nice score.  I'll eventually get that one myself.  Still others I want to hunt down first.:D

Those are 1/48 scale from Yamato. Precursor to the V.2 1/60's. B))

It's good to know that ZD Toys is making Iron Man figures, for those of us who

  • don't like the articulation on the Marvel Legends Iron Man figures
  • don't like the proportions on the Revoltech Iron Man figures
  • don't like the paint on the MAFEX Iron Man figures
  • don't like the scale of the SH Figuarts Iron Man figures
  • don't like the weight of the Comicave Studios Iron Man figures
  • don't like the sculpt on the DST Marvel Select Iron Man figures
  • don't like the price of the ThreeZero Iron Man figures

I just wish there were more manufacturers making 1:12 Iron Man figures.  :crazy:

Haha, great thing for me is I don't care about MCU Iron Man figures and I'm not a scale Nazi so my Iron Man collection is centered around Sentinel and Mezco!:p

WIP...Mezco and other figures still in storage somewhere...

Lol.. there are just so many choices. Like @Slave IV, MCU Iron Mans (and other MCU figures) were never on my radar, and I was quite satisfied with just Sentinel's interpretation of their Iron Man figures.

ZD Toy's pricing was just too good to pass up, especially at this level of paint, sculpt & detail. Articulation isn't strong, but for Hall of Armor style display, articulation isn't really much needed anyway. Size is actually slightly larger than 1/12, the size of the Sentinel Re:Edits.

Thanks @ValkAddict

its supposed to be my Marvel shelf but I haven’t had a chance to clear out my other shelves yet so it’s been serving as a miscellaneous shelf. 

This was a few months ago:

This is now:

Spider-Man, Avengers and Iron Man shelves are well underway. Fantastic Four shelf itching to be setup, X-Men shelf has been controlled by some crazy futuristic Mecha for a while and they don’t seem ready to move on.

Yamato 1/48 Stealth w/ Strike Pack. Probably the only Yamato VF-1 I'll ever get, just love this color scheme. Quite a different experience from the Bandai DXs. Snagged it off Mandarake for a decent price, although shipping was killer. Box was a bit beat up but the contents were pristine. 

My one big gripe about Yamato is... They make their boxes so freaking huge. Shipping them sucks!

Thanks! I'm looking for a second set of the Fext hobby background so I can get a bit more space to spread out... And add some maintenance crew figures. Right now the VF-1s barely fit lol.

 Nice! Those FEXT sets are sweet! I still need to put some of mine together. I love the way the clear parts diffuse light. 

And totally agree with what you said about the color scheme...best deco ever on a VF-1 figure. That comparison picture shows how great the Yamato release is and after all these years and all the improvements, the DX still can’t compare in so many ways.

Sweet Marvel collection @Slave IV - thanks for posting the pics! That Galactus looks awesome
