All I have seen confirmed are stickers ( as per the HLJ ) listing -- have they mentioned waterslide decals somewhere? I can imagine some extra aftermarket waterslides might be necessary anyways depending on what they might miss but it'd be nice to have a base set of them.

Actually, even GoodSmile website says 'stickers' too. Maybe you can contact them and verify?

Eh what it ends up coming with in the end when it comes to decals doesn't matter too much - really nice quality waterslides would be great but if I have to aquire aftermarket decals with more details that won't bother me too much. I expect I'll be looking down the nose of some photo-etch or 3-d printed improvements for this kit anyhow on top of building some custom lighting. A large scale VF-1 has been on my wishlist forever and I expect to put a lot extra into this build when I finally have a year or two to work on it.

Goodsmile has listed this for release in Jan 2019

Amiami: https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail?gcode=FIGURE-041875

 

Now if only they would release Figma versions of all the SDF characters... and Plus as well :P

That's an easy pass for me. I've had enough of DYRL characters with the CMS and Banpresto lines. I hope some SDF Macross figures get released. So far, the only company working on that is Kitz Concept

The kit is now delayed to October... as per Goodsmile news:

http://www.goodsmile.info/en/post/4771/Release+Dates+and+Changes+for+September+2018+Products+Scale+Figure+Delay+Apology.html

and product page:

http://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/7226/PLAMAX+MF+25+minimum+factory+VF+1+Super+Strike+Gerwalk+Valkyrie.html

 

I'm a bit bummed about the delay; however, I guessed it would happen... Goodsmile has been delaying quite a few of their releases as of late... maybe they produce too much for their own good? :P

GSC really expanded theirs lines the past few years, so I think these delays are something to be expected considering that they try to have consistent high quality releases. But between the delay and Bandai's model of limited quantity items or exclusivity, I'll pick the former.

So while we're getting delayed again, could they at least post the manual online so that we can plan our builds better?

I ended up going back and looking through all the available pics of the runners so far. They've actually shown runners for pretty much everything by now except the arms and hands. Unless I missed those. Would very much appreciate if someone posted pics of those runners.

Another interesting thing I found is a pretty massive mold redesign for the wing runner over the years of development
