Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


IXTL

Recommended Posts

Bandai should have printed the numbers correctly then included reverse decals for the weirdos who love backwards numbering. :p

Checked From Japan and requested shipping before they even sent me the item arrival email. :lol:

Anyone going to do a Messer-style custom for Kakizaki?

I've been wondering about the quality of the replacement decals. That looks downright decent. Hopefully this is the last time we get Bandai'd with reversed modex numbers.

That would be wishful thinking at this point, haha. I think they might realize that more of them are not reversed on the starboard side and mirror them all :p

Bandai hasn't posted any pictures of a decal sheet for the Roy 1S, so this might be a one-off to appease collectors. For anyone who is interested, I still have a few decal sets available from my last run and can do another small run, if needed. $5 plus shipping. Each sheet has markings for up to four valks.

That's too bad if so. I like those kill mark decals on that sheet, but I have no interest in getting Kakizaki's VF-1A.

That sort of practical logic applies to Bandai engineering, NOT to Bandai marketing.  <_<

I could totally see Kakizaki making that pose and grinning like an idiot after finally managing to make a kill.

I still think these are the best hands on a Macross toy to date with all that you can do with them.

"Your lack of military decorum is most unbecoming, Mr. Kakizaki.  What do you have to say for yourself?"

What's up with the number on the bottom of the wing? Do all the DX's have that and I just missed it? 

The TV Valks don't, but Hikaru's VF-1S has the exact same number on the bottom of his wing.  :blink:

I like the green with it all dressed up. I think I may end up regretting not getting one.

No Skull Squadron is complete without Kakizaki.  8)

I really wanted to buy into Kakyzaky and Roy, but goddam Bandai and their continuing practices to avoid any corrections.  They blatantly don’t care.

This line could have been my all-time favorite but I just can’t seem to get over all the inconsistencies present.

To me it feels like your buying a Ferari and getting a Ferari. So close, but yet so farr.:5:

I’ll just keep my other DXs and drop my support until two seaters are released.

In another universe, Kakizaki beat Milia in a fight and we make jokes about Max’s cameo in DYRL. 

I mean, if he shows up in two parts of the movie and has some lines each time it's more than a "cameo". We can even assume that all the missiles he fires in the opening battle kill at least some Zentradi. If he wasn't in the beginning and got introduced and summarily offed later on it would have been a bit too pathetic even for Kaki :p

It juuuust released like 24 hours ago. I wouldn’t worry. Notifications will start flowing this week and next.

If you did manage to get one via NY, you're possibly screwed as they have screwed everyone else also.

ROFLMAO!!!

:bump:

Bandai's pure arrogance or unstoppable tonedeaf  shenanigan?

Maybe both...

   :5:

When they did the SANS SERIF 00l as l00 I honestly thought they just flipped it upside down on accident on the machine for the whole Hikaru run. Seeing them deliberately type out 210 is just bizarre

Well, I broke down and ordered a second via Amazon Japan.

¥28,400 shipped. Not terrible, considering that ¥4500 of that was the shipping cost.

Where on Amazon did you find a seller who would ship to you?  All of the sellers I see say it's unavailable to ship to CA.  I'm in the Bay Area as well.

Hmm, if you are in the Bay Area as well, any interest in getting 2 and saving on shipping?

I also bought one from Amazon tonight.  It depends on the seller.  Some ship internationally, some do not.  I tried adding to cart and found one where I could complete the checkout process (to Canada).  Currently, I see none ship internationally, but keep checking as they seem to come and go fast.  Good luck!

I'll keep looking, then.  Thanks, man.

Hello everyone,

I wanted to ask who still has their VF-1 Strike Parts from NY waiting to be shipped? 

 

I do, from last June!  Hahahahaha!!!

When I look at Amazon.jp, it shows that it's not released until the 28th.  Did you guys preorder one through them or is there another place I should be looking at?  Sorry for all the questions, y'all.
