Quick question about the special stand, is it the same as the one for the VF-1J execpt for the text, or the points of banking is more/different. I have not gotten mine as I don’t think I want to feed scalpers at this point, even for $30-50 more. 

It has an additional part “S ジョイント” (S joint) that’s new to this DX which allows for additional 15 degrees banking angles either way. See diagram and hopefully that explains it better than I can!

The new roy has a 3 part on the special edition stand which allows you to tilt it even further than the  1J ..   its a little peg that connects the clip to the plane to the base

Yes I know. Mine does not fit.  I’m trying to figure out if I’m doing it wrong. I don’t own the 1J so it’s my first time with this type of stand. The centre position on the 3 position part fits but I cannot use the left or right slot without breaking something. I’ll try it again later.

Picked up one so far.  The one from Amazon JP came in when I left the pick up location.

I’ll redo some poses that I’ve already done for HM and HMR like the Fighter to half Gerwalk transformation from SDFM.  The attachment is clear but too bad the stand is not clear.  I’ll figure something out.

My second Roy came in from AJ via Tenso. They basically just slapped a DHL shipping label on the AJ box, which is not something they normally do, but I think it saved me some money on shipping. That's the good news. The bad news is that AJ didn't bubble wrap the Roy at all, just dropped it in the box with some of that plastic air pillow packing material along one side. There was enough empty space left that Roy moved around in there and at least four of the corners are slightly damaged. Still, I know of members who've received valks from AJ that shipped in plastic bags and got damaged in a bunch of different ways, so I'm not complaining too much.

I noticed several replies and PMs regarding the DX decal set. I'll be responding to all of you tomorrow. Had to deal with some high priority stuff at work for the past two days that ate up all of my free time.

Man, Roy's VF-1S is amazing - that black and yellow w/ the skull is just gorgeous! Wow. I can't wait to pose them w/ the other Valks

I didn't bought one. But for some reason I appreciate the Yellow and Black scheme on his VF-0S more. :wub: Shoot, why do I get a feeling that my DX line is going to expand with Roy's if Bandai decides to do the VF-0S. :rolleyes:

:angry:

I think my VF-1J and one of my Hikaru VF-1S have that misaligned wing swept too in Battroid.

I actually tried Photoshop coloring a VF-0S to red before for Hikaru. But it doesn't look right like the VF-1S, hence, why I appreciate the Yellow and Black scheme on VF-0S. ;)

But, just in case Bandai makes a VF-0S, it doesn't mean that I should go back and buy a Roy VF-1S. Hehehe. :lol: 

And the other Valk that's going to make me expand my DX 1/48 collection aside from Roy's VF-0S is Isamu's YF-19. :rolleyes:

What says that pic wasn't taken in the shipping/storage room of a store/retailer?

Yup, I mentioned that, but in a later post.  

 

Anyway, to each their own.

 

Glad we're seeing more open box pics of the toys themselves now ....for a while, it was just pages and pages of shipping updates, lol!

The fit and finish of even Bandai's premium line lags behind Yamato 2008. 

If that's the worst problem you have, then consider yourself fortunate. 

Bandai does have a long history of this issue, though, so it really shouldn't surprise anyone.  They haven't quite mastered the art of getting wings to cool without curling... despite the model division having all the necessary skills and know-how.

Just be glad they moved past the "pulling 10 Gs" wing curl on the VF-25 DX.

C;mon now, JVM. That's why I said DX 1/48. If ever they decide to make one. ;) :rolleyes:

Looking at them together... now I miss the red on Hikaru's heatshield. :rolleyes:

how many videos on the 1/48 DX roy does one need? Obviously never enough, especially one with SDFM roy leading a squad of DYRL valks..:p

Plus i like the way he poses his valks in battroid..

Did anyone else see the humor in squidd's post followed immediately by treatment's picture?

See the difference now?

Well, stop looking up your VF-1's skirts....................................pervert!:lol:

I guess I had seen the wing mis-alignment and my brain went straight to "That's normal QC crap". I can see how that could drive you bonkers. That sucks. Sorry.

I guess I'm lucky with my weird compartmentalized OCD. That wouldn't bother me. Other things on the other hand I will lose sleep over.

If they do a 1/60 scale Zero line I'm screwed (I'd replace my Yamato/Arcadia stuff....probably). If they do them in 1/48 I'm in huge trouble! I'd replace everything and need more display space!:lol:

*Dreams* of a yellow TV 1S DX without roy's name, and included hikaru with misa. 

That emotion in that black and white scene. Minmay's singing softening for misa and hikaru. The magic of SDFM. :rolleyes:

Love all the pics!

I will say that Bandai can’t even completely replace the old 1/48 Yamato’s, let alone the absolutely stellar Arcadia VF-0s. There is no way my Arcadia VF-0s would be replaced if Bandai made Zero Valks. It would just mean my Zero collection gets expanded.
