Ya but it was epic;)3507DC3C-723E-4D19-9433-41835F2FD969.gif.d2f6e8acb844b241d7f41f5b94c34192.gif

Indeed it is. I've seen this clip a billion times and I still dont understand how he got the pilot out of the pod. They need more animation frames for that sequence. 

That is why I have little interest for TV hero valks. I was exposed to DYRL first and didnt see the tv show until years later and even then it was robotech. The animation didnt exactly wow me.

I expect my 1S Hikaru to be naked for a long time. Paid for my AE preorder more than a half year ago. I'm in the April batch but the postal service from Japan to Argentina is postponed for the time being.

Hope AE holds my preorder for me.

AE has always had an “indefinite private warehouse”. I’ve had items sit with them for over a year.

I use Mandarake all the time they ship to the States, Canada, etc..  However, since Japan Post has really changed their shipping during COVID, you'd be best to use DHL.

Your better off using DHL as EMS will take forever to mail out due to delays and SAL is a no go providing that your not within the "Suspended Country" list.

Is boat shipping still an option? I'm pretty sure I ordered 3 sets through NY via boat. 

You're in the safety zone @jenius as your located in the States as Manda has stopped SAL indefinitely (see Japanpost's PFD in regrards to shipping restrictions). 

The other question is: Who knows if your stuff from NY has ever shipped at all before this situation unfolded? :unknw:

Fast Pack set on YJA (April)...buy it now for $100...but if you read the comment on the auction, it made me laugh!!!

https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/r392226159

柿崎機の尾翼を見て、集める気が無くなりました。
あらかじめ注文していた本品が再来週に届いてしまいます。
キャンセルできないので、ここで処分します。

translated (machine)

I saw the tail wing of Kakizaki machine, and I lost my mind to collect it.
This item you ordered in advance will arrive again next week.
I can't cancel it, so I'll dispose of it here.

:)

It’s fast, but when he punches the pod in the sensor eye area, it crunches and breaks open the hull, he then grabs him by the arm and pulls him out.

I only collect transformers normally and I bought the Bandai VF-1S Hikaru and told myself I would only buy the future Roy 1S and be happy with two.

But it’s my birthday later this week so I decided to go ahead and order the Kakizaki. So now I’m looking at getting the whole skull squad..... I think I may have an addiction problem. 

This place is the Skid Row of the addiction problem with valks.

He punches him in the eye!!  Never noticed that before.

Highest price for the DX 1s Hikaru is 32k yen (unopened, package damaged) and still available at 26k and 28k yen. 

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1134181918&ref=list&dispCount=240&keyword=%E3%83%9E%E3%82%AF%E3%83%AD%E3%82%B9&lang=en

For us that got the Hikaru's DX 1s, concider us very fortunate to get one before the prices go totally insane later on.

As for Roy's release, will see how it goes once the floodgates open upon release date.

The GU-11 gunpods are quite versatile...

They can be held and fired in any position!  :rolleyes:

That's great! Someone should make an online database collecting all of this great packaging art
