Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


IXTL

Recommended Posts

I think there is a big chance that Bandai will sell the GBP bundled with a grey goggle 1J :wacko:

Yamato did that back in the day. That's how I ended up with two 1J's. Can't exactly remember when, but we had to wait months, if not more than a year before Yamato decided to sell the armor as an add on.

I'll be extremely pissed if Bandai only sells the GBP bundled. I don't need/wan't to pay for an extra 1J.

You wouldn't be the only one pissed...... :huh: Bring out the Macross Mob!
However looking at bandai's habit of releasing armor parts, i doubt the GBP would be out of reach.

Still, it itches to think abt the GBP on a DX! And it itches even more to wonder if there would be a grey goggle somehow...

Im betting my collection (the integrity of it) that another 1J will come one way or another. It’s why I only have one right now. Even if for some reason it doesn’t come I can put GBP on any other Valk I have too. I kinda like the look on 1As better anyways. 

I'm betting that too. 

Oh, and one of my 1/60 GBP v2 sets is dressing a 1A TV cannon fodder.

Hey Ignacio. Let the bundle package ship it here so I can take your extra VF-1J first. :lol:

Yeah, I’m all for various versions and I like them all. Of course, I think it would be cool if they just offered one premium version at a lower price but whatever. They need to hire LEK to offer a LPF version!

I support this idea!

I was going to have LEK do a 1S for me. He's booked through 4th quarter.............2021!!!!:shok:

I was like, man, I may not even be alive by then.:D

So I ordered 2 sets of SSP from NY and paid up front in June last year...I haven't seen them ship yet and these have been out for awhile. What gives? Are a lot of you in the same boat?

I am. And I am seriously reconsidering doing future business with them. These POs are getting ridiculous.

I am still waiting for my VF-1S from them, which reminds me that I need to inquire about it again.

And it is not just a Macross pre-order thing, people in other forums are posting similar complaints. Seems like NY currently has general and serious problem with getting orders out.

@Slave IV I thought these were shipped a long time ago.:rolleyes:

I don’t know, I missed my order there but I thought everyone who got initial discounted preorders got theirs already. I’m assuming any who haven’t must have ordered later but I’m not here to keep track of other people’s orders. I don’t even care about when my own orders show up as long as they do. 
 

Meanwhile, the HMR VF-4 has already shipped from NY before most shops even requested payment for them. :unknw:

My Robot Spirits Xamel has been Preparation in Progress for three weeks now:fool:

That sucks but really all of this is just too much 1st world problems to me. Three weeks means jack to me in the world of having or not having a toy. Heck, I have toys in my possession that I have not seen for years and I’m still all good.

There’s 2 batch , I’m pretty sure you are on the 2nd batch which hasn’t even release yet .

Didn’t they already shipped it?  Iirc ,you use their new Trans-Logistic shipping which is only for Europe, but the shipping company there were overloaded due to the holiday shipping.  So your incident could be more related to the Trans-Logistic shipping than N-Y delay shipping your order out , maybe?

I'm in the same boat. Last email said new date is 4/30. I guess someone mentioned there is a 2nd batch? Just hope I get it....don't want my valk to be naked!

I'm in the same boat. I was in the initial preorder and got pushed to April release. I've already bought another set and had it delivered while waiting.

NY didn't place any orders for the 1st batch even if you think you ordered from them early enough. By default, orders from NY are all 2nd batch. 

Ah ok...that makes more sense....cuz I PO'd pretty early...ha
