I’m going to do this pose with my HMR as well.

Thanks! That’s a classic pose!

I don't remember you posting these. They're great! 

Yeah, I’m just digging through a bunch of old photos when I found all these. Thanks!

Time to take some new pics soon!

There's a used VF-4G that costs more than a new one on amiami. That's a bit awkward until you look more closely. The new one has some box damage, otherwise it would be 12,120. Still higher than N-Y at 9180, but you might actually get it before Christmas 2023. Amazon has a bunch right around 9000, but that's for domestic shipping to a Tenso-like address, so there are additional costs to get it shipped overseas. Seems like, for now, these guys are stabilizing at 9-10,000.

You can actually order in Amazon JP and have it shipped internationally. Just need to pick the correct seller.

FWIW, I ordered Spring Sale stuff from NY and they shipped within an hour of my order...

Yes, that's correct. But many sellers don't want to ship internationally, mark up the price, or you get hit with high shipping costs. It never hurts to check both options (Tenso or direct international shipping). I basically just leave my AJ profile set to my Tenso address these days and when I find something I want to buy, I'll do a quick check to see if it's available for international shipping and how that price compares to a domestic purchase plus Tenso's handling fees. Usually the item disappears or the price goes up, but not always.

Nice.


For all those who have the repeated leg armor syndrome this would be an excellent solution to display your VF-1A valkyrie.

Thanks.  I’ll see if I can set up the rest of the Super Parts on stands today.

What is repeated leg armor syndrome? I don't have the Hikaru 1A, just the 1S, and that one seems to be fine. Is it related to the smaller piece that goes on the back of the leg, as in there are two copies of the same side so you can't actually attach one of the larger pieces?

Wow, that's terrible. And an unusual QC fail for Bandai in this line.
