I've been on a hiatus from this thread. Has anyone not received their TV super parts from Nin Nin yet? Mine is apparently still in progress.

I've sent in a ticket with no reply for about two weeks now. Shame.

NY sent me this email:

"We apologies we still cannot ship by eco sal registered to your country

Please don't hesitate to send another message if you need anything else.

Kind Regards

Customer Service"

After I enquired about my order, but they don't offer another option. Maybe it is the Covid thing? I don't want to cancel the order, but IDk what to do.

Anyone else see a picture yesterday of a DYRL strike Max 1S? I saw a link to it on a Facebook page that went to a twitter. It seemed like an odd choice, if it was real. I don't think there WAS a strike Max 1S. Wasn't the last we saw of him in the movie in a non-armored one s before he ended up getting unmicronized and getting his own queadlunn rau? Anyway my memory could be faulty.

Your memory is correct. A strike max would not be canon (despite having a big-ass cannon). There are a number of custom DX Max 1S (repainted Hikaru 1S) running around, some with weathering even, and yeah, I might throw some SSP on mine just for fun :D

Has anyone else got loose Gerwalk rotation joints above the knee cap?

They are extremely loose on my VF-1S Roy.

I'm assuming you mean the joint allowing the lower leg to rotate for a good splayed stance, and I do believe some of mine are that way as well.

I don't think Bandai has ever quite figured out a good way to make these joints.  Worst example was the VF-171, where the entire leg rotated on a hollow plastic pin around a metal spring pin.

It was a 1/100 scale mode kit that was posted.

Thanks for clarifying I couldn't tell if it looked like a DX or not from the tiny picture. It just seemed really odd.

Yup.

I have 3 DX Roys, one is loose to the point where the legs splay out on their own, and the other two are loose as well, but tight enough they can at least hold a pose.

Somebody lucked out and got a 1S Roy for 20k on Mandarake. I wonder what was wrong with it. I'd buy one for that price even with a beat up box. They paid maybe $250 after shipping?

Look carefully : this is a used item, with no more detailed information. You may expect some good or not really good surprises...

Used item at Mandarake is usually an Excellent condition item unless they specifically mention an issue with the figure. If you don't care about the open box then it is a great deal, I have seen a couple of times the 20k price.

Here's a crazy question but has anyone that ordered Kakizaki from NY actually received it yet?  I paid to upgrade shipping to UPS but now they ignore requests.for an update.  I just did a live chat and they tell me my item will ship when it is release so I pointed out it was released in August so they forwarded a message supposedly to their fulfillment team.

Yes. I ordered my 1J recently. Mandarake said box damage but when I received it, only a small nick on the opening flap that I don't really mind.

 

But to fussy collectors who want perfect boxes, then they will say that it is badly damage.

@manfred17 -  Used items from Manda are usually in excellent shape just like what @betocc and @jemC has mentioned. If there are flaws, Manda discloses it and lists the damages.

If the box of the item mentions heavily damaged, it means scratched, dinged, creased or the corners worn out. If Manda says severely box damaged on the listing, then the box is extremely worn out, box beaten to snot, creased, visible rips and very worn out bashed in corners.

If there are any tiffs about your stuff from Manda, they will work out an solution with you to get the issue sorted out and hopefully that you have supporting documents to help out. 

 

Jungle on the other hand has three listings: Sealed (untouched and straight from the factory), Grade A: Brand new in box, Grade B: Opened and displayed. However Grade B sometimes is a flag: Hidden damages not seen, items maybe fixed due to damages, dis-colouration, etc... and sometimes not listed. You have to ask Jungle for more details and hope that it doesn't get swiped at the same time.

 

Amiami has listed their stuff as follows: Item A, Box B and down the list it goes.

Here's the list stated below:

"Notice Regarding Pre-Owned Item

Please confirm the following conditions of pre-owned items before placing order.

C: Opened item with conspicuous damage. Sub parts may be missing.

Just a thought here...

We all know for sure that bandai will release the DX Roy DYRL Version some day. (based on the black skull emblem included in the SSP set)
For some of you who bought more than 1 DX TV Roy recently, will you consider getting another DX Movie Roy? There may be some differences here and there on the tampo print and I'm not surprise that they will do something to the head sculpt. But will you pay full price or go through another po madness for these differences, assuming if you already have more than 1 tv Roy? One to display as tv ver and another in movie ver, regardless canon or not.

I have three TV Roy’s.

If I didn’t already have three custom DYRL Roy’s, yes, I would get DYRL Roy’s when released.
