So, contacted NY about 2 TV armor sets I ordered. They said they haven’t received them. I asked for refund and crickets. Contacted PayPal, they said it’s 184 days so past their window.

contacted my credit card, they gave me credit for both and said they would file chargeback.

SMH I’m tired of NY. Not using them any longer after 100’s of transactions. 
funny thing is I ordered sets from anime export same day n received both. 

I’ve always wondered what PP does when you charge them back. Can you keep us updated? Thanks!

Honestly, I hope for us all that PO madness subsides a bit. (But yes, I LOVE the thrill :spiteful:)

I love and hate the PO madness. I was upset to see Roy disappear but it followed with that adrenaline rush when I still hit it with Luna Park about 3:00am-ish. Nailing a 1D with AE so easy this time felt weird when I couldn't touch a Roy at AE (page went from not available yet to sold out in one refresh for me), but then the TWE has been always easier that I've seen (I could find a Kaki if I wanted for awhile after PO night). That thrill when you score is tough to give up.

Yeah.

Bandai pegs/connections.

Yeah...   

:mellow: :blink:

:5:

 

Fun fact.. seating the arms fully on the pegs tends to point the gunpod so high Roy shoots himself in the backside. :p 

Only way I can get the gunpod lined up is pulling the arms fully off the pegs, and angling them down.

Even if "domestic shipping" was not free....it wouldn't affect the BIN price that much.....it's the current international shipping fees that are making these "deals"....not much of a deal...which is why the market pricing for the VF-1S Focker has more or less "peaked"......let's see what happens once Covid19 is more or less made irrelevant to shipping operations

There’s nothing for @jvmacrossto switch out.  I haven’t done that pose with the DX VF-1J Hikaru.

:good:

No rush....but if you have the time I would like to take a crack at the VF-1J "half-schematic" pic...not sure how good it would look if I combined the DX -1J with the "schematic" side shown on that IMAI box.....what I do know is that you would be able to nail the pose using the DX! :drinks:

I'd like to see something like the SoC DX line, a VF with removable armor pieces to expose internal mechanicals! 

They’re already DX’s so I suppse if they were going to do that it would probably be a Metal Structure. 1/35 scale. $1000+. 

Bandai isn’t terribly consistent. The Metal Structure Gundam is about 17” tall and costs about $1000. The DX Mazinger Z is about 16” tall and $1000.

I’d buy a $1000 1/35 Focker without hesitating.

AE has a Roy available for ¥32000, before shipping:

http://www.anime-export.com/product/50591

That's way above current market price....

Dayum. Definitely above market price. 
 

My Roy shipped to my forwarding service from Amazon, 24000JY. Will probably send it via surface. I don’t mind waiting.

Just got in my second Focker and super packs from AE, and.. I gotta say, the "special" stand kind of pisses me off.

It's one thing to make your tabbing system sloppy, and misaligned, so you have to bend the arms to get the gunpod level.

It's an entirely different problem when you design your display stand to hold the gunpod at the wrong freaking angle. :rolleyes:

Seriously.  I just can't even begin to understand Bandai's designs.

Yes, the gunpod is entirely capable of sitting level, if you drop the arms very slightly, and bend them at the elbows, which of course leaves the arms hanging completely below the tabs on the underside of the backplate.  The tabs and slots that hold the arms in place with super packs on have enough slop in them that the angle doesn't keep them from locking in place.  But, according to Bandai, the gunpod is supposed to be aiming at the underside of the nose. <_<

I found myself rather underwhelmed when adding the Super Parts to Roy's VF-1S in fighter mode. Could not get the arms to tab in and hold the gunpod up at the right angle. Hadn't tried the display stand yet...so that's a bummer how it lines up there too.

Otherwise they look really nice and it's great to have proper red tipped missiles. I will have to display it in Gerwalk or Battroid for less annoyance.

Whatever you do, do not allow your friends or family to crouch down and focus their gaze on this defect....what an eyesore!  I honestly do not think anyone would hold it against you if you just decided to toss it all in the trash and set it ablaze!  :rolleyes:

Yeah, so the arms WILL NOT tab in and hold the gunpod level.  They just flat out don't do it.  They are designed to hold it pointed up at the underside of the nose, because BANDAI.

You have to bend the arms so they drop entirely free of those pegs before the gunpod will sit level with super packs.

Yours seems a bit worse than mine, at least he's not shooting his nosecone off over here.
