how do you attach it onto the wing?

the hardpoints are visually identical [or very near].

so you just mount it to the hardpoint like a Yamato or HMR: gently push-on to the hardpoint and twist for alignment... unless I'm doing it wrong.

well i did try to "make it fit" like a yamato or hmr, but it doesn't quite "fit". so i wonder if it requires any modification.

“Make it fit”  yes , you mod it so it will fit 

Iirc , you will have to sand off or cut off some part of the attachment point on the Yamato so it will fit on the Bandai .

Amazon.jp has Roy's 1S for  24.5k yen.....some for as cheap as 23.9k.  While they won't ship those ones to my address in the states, it's still crazy to see that they're available for that cheap.  

Good prices however still not shipping to the West Coast of Canada either if anyone is wondering.

I was buying VF-1S Hikaru's for that out of JP only 6mo ago. Do I think there are more Roy's on the market? Yes. A ton more? Meh, maybe.

SDFM 
VF-1J Hikaru (done)
VF-1S Roy (done, thanks)
VF-1A Max (yep, done as well)
VF-1A Kakizaki (expected but you never know)

VF-1J with GBP (revealed, very sexy)
VF-1J Max (more Max? yes please)
VF-1J Milia (best girl, expected if 1J Max comes)
VF-1D (coming soon)
VF-1A CF (I will buy at least 2)
VF-1D Virgin Road (always need more Max and Milia)
VF-1A Angel Birds (gimme now)
VF-1A Alaska Base (would be nice)
VF-1A Cavaliers (bandai please…)

DYRL
VF-1S Roy (yes bandai, we need that movie head sculpt)
VF-1A Hikaru (teased, I like)
VF-1A Max (teased as well, i love)
VF-1A Kakizaki (done)

VF-1S Max (lawdy lawd, yes please)
VF-1S Hikaru (done)

VE-1 (mmmhmmm, gimme that 1/48 elintseeker)

VT-1 (a 1/48 is always welcome)
VF-1J CF (would be cool)

Others:
VF-1J Stealth (I need this)
VF-1S Low Vis (maybe? jk I will PO this so fast)

 

There might be some more, GBP for Max and Roy was teased and that'd be cool. Maybe a Minmay guard or Woodland color? I don't know if that is licensed. Blue Roses w/ Fast pack? Hell yea! What I really want is a no-paint version or kit based on this mold. :)

You got the ve-1 in the wrong list there... Seems like a wallet bruising for sure.

Nice list and thots..;)

My take is that with the new delta movie coming soon, those long shot vf-1 valks are most likely to be in the wishlist wonderland for quite some time...
