With a simple repair of swapping out bad shoulders for new Shapeways shoulders and we're good as new. If anyone else wants to do this repair and salvage the Old "Knurled" pins, make sure you file them down till they're nice & smooth. B))

Also, for everything the new DX can do, the Yamato V.2 still has one advantage with its removable cockpit and seated Minmay figure👍

Awesome score! Also, I fixed your post. 8)

Nice!! :lol::lol:

@Lolicon I meant ask you, did you get a DX VF-1D and if so, did you paint the landing gear white? 

I did but I've been in the process of moving to my new house so I haven't been able to do any kind of hobby work aside from opening a few boxes. Most of my things are still boxed up or in storage. Maybe soon...

Moving is never fun, I've had to do it a few times. Hopefully you're back to your old routines soon enough & you can break out the goods! B))

...and then you'll want a figure to ride it. :unsure:

 

I figure at some point WAVE or someone with 3D printing skills will come up with a solution.

The Hound Mono bike is a personal favorite of mine, so I'm glad to have a few finally.

While wondering if Arcadia would consider a reissue of the VF-1D, I came across this little gem and snapped it up right away. (No option parts but I can live without those for now) 

The toy for its age is extremely clean & snug, only issue are those dreaded cracked shoulders, luckily I have a spare set from Shapeways and know how to fix it, for what I paid for this VF-1D, a small repair is worth it. B))👍

 

 

^ How difficult is it to replace the cracked shoulders? I'm not a customizer and don't have much experience. TIA for any info you can share.

Not that hard. Just have to remove a few screws in the back and swap them right out. Yamato didn't glue everything shut the way Bandai does.

Like @Lolicon just posted it's not that hard. I sent you a PM with a YouTube video of how to do the repair. 

A little patience and you'll nail it!

Perfect Grade Perfect Strike.

This thing is nuts. Sooooooooo much stuff going on. Very cool mode. Fiddly and very fragile though. And HUGE. Posed like this it’s 21” tall, 15.5” wide and 13.5” deep. I need to do some serious moving around so to get it in a case with good lighting. I feel horrible having it out in the “atmosphere”. It’s too nice.

Sorry for the crappy lit pics. It needs light to see all the paint details. I don’t have anything with enough light that is big enough right now. And I’m worn out from putting this thing together and posing it.

Where do you keep all of this stuff? For fun I tracked your purchases over a 30 day period and it was somewhere around 100 figures like above and 120 "Matchbox" type cars (plus other random stuff). What do you do with all of that stuff? If you extrapolate that out to multiple years that is a lot of cubic feet of toys. Do you display them? Do they sit in boxes? How big is your house?!?!:ohmy:

In my head I imagine you have a basement that looks like a Toys R Us with rows of retail displays packed with stuff.:shok:

FWIW, this is a pic of one of my spaces from over a year ago:

I can't even get an angle like that to photo anymore and I have another equivalent space filled to the brim and a garage that is completely filled floor to ceiling minus a spot for one car.

I believe in the US, people don't use the 'garage' as intended to be used. :good:

But don't get me wrong though. How I wish I have a garage so I can fill it up with toys. :rolleyes:

Well, that certainly explains why the parking is so bad at my condo complex, despite everyone having 2-car garages.

I keep mine in the walk-in closet, personally.

I see some Christmas Wrappings. Can you gift wrap me one of your extra DX VF-31A? :rolleyes:

I do! It's a extra deep three car with 12' ceilings, one super fast car, mountain bikes and whole lot of tools/equipment. NO LAWN CARE STUFF AT ALL.:p

I wish I could use my garage for storage, but the 110+ temperatures in the summer don't really make that a good spot for storing collectibles. 

No walk-in closet either.. I just have them piled in my "hobby" room in the closet, and along the walls with my LEGO collection.
