*Pulls out the box for the Arcadia VF-1J GBP reissue that arrived a little while ago and looks at the bottom tray*

Son of a....Well, what do you know. I was so excited about the reissue showing up (I own very few Yamato 1/60 v2 and Arcadia valks) that I slapped the armor on without noticing or attaching the foot covers or the side cavity fillers. I'll fix that tonight. And both of your corrections are GBP-related. :) The non-metallic finish on the feet, which look to have no seam lines, does make one wonder if those are covers. Happy to be corrected on this stuff.

I also stand corrected on the HMR. It *does* come with foot covers. Just turned mine upside down and sure enough there are duller plastic covers on the shiny metallic feet.

Lol! 

 

I sincerely hope that the DX 1/48 has better proportions than the Yammie 1/48 (will get a better idea when more photos come out).  I never liked the Yammie GBP because it looked.......fat.  It was chunky like the 1/55 chunky monkey.

I’m sure they will be. But I look to optimistic outcomes that this could come with stickers/decals to make customs like the one they showed at the Tamashii event.

Fingers crossed.

This would be awesome:

Back from Christmas holiday, missed the 1D pre-order, damn, feels bad. I didn't even know it went up, what a stupid ass day for pre-orders, even an exclusive.

Luna Park still have this open 

"Use code NEWCUSTOMER for ¥2000 off"

Thanks for the link! Grabbed one, with that code the price isn't too bad, but shipping seems a bit weird. Do they charge later with an updated price? I didn't choose an actual shipping option, and shipping was a random, flat price.

I have an extra if you want it.

EDIT: Saw you got one.

im not sure since I haven't preorder from them, but others seems to get their item, so I would say a upgrade to fedex or DHL would be required if EMS is still suspended in July of 2021.

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it! Had a hunch that it will go for 30k yen and it did.

The one I listed for 20k yen couple of days ago was a steal at that price.

And then one for 25k

I'm sure there will be more Roys around 25k-27k, there are still plenty of Roys below 26k in YJA anyway.

I was emailing with Luna Park about my 1D order and I asked if they are still taking orders for the TV Supers April release. They are apparently. 

Would they would refund you if they cant get it? :mellow:

ie not store credit.

It's infectious! Did the same just now. First DX VF-1 I decided to grab.

I've got all of them so far but the 1A's. Holding out for Max DYRL 1A. 

I was lucky during the great Roy preorder madness of 2020.

And tv supers just got mailed to me today... Or just got mailed to me tomorrow, since Japan is in the future

Thx to a member from another board that notice the promo code for new customers :lol:

"Use code NEWCUSTOMER for ¥2000 off"

https://www.lunapark.store/product-page/dx-chogokin-vf-1d-valkyrie-fan-racer-japan-version

¥28,500- 2,000 = 26500 yen

Thanks I bought just one here for now. Will wait til July for ebay and see if I can get any for under $300

Anyone that ordered TV Supers from NY have theirs shipped yet?

Please tell me you're kidding?  I'm still waiting for my strike parts from them from June of 2019

 Same here. No signs from NY except an email at the beginning of december saying that there was a release date change. Honestly i have a bad feeling about this...i am pretty sure i will get screwed again.

Well let’s just hope NY is lagging due to the holidays. Based on all the negative feedback they’ve gotten here I knew it was a gamble, but with the 10 orders I’ve placed with them throughout the years I’ve never been burned.

Speaking of Supers again, any of us waiting on Kurama get shipping notice yet? I know there are a few of us.

I’m in the same boat, sent messages asking them to finalize shipping cost for me but they seem rather slow to respond.

maybe  Kurama is waiting it out to ship it after the christmas peak because Fedex and DHL adds a extra surcharge for shipping near big holidays .

unfortuniatly Fedex is going to extend this surcharge pass January 2021 instead of Christmas.
