Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


Recommended Posts

Not quite sure if the subject has been discussed yet but i was wondering...is it possible to use the old yamato variable stand on the new Bandai 1/48 line?

I know there is a thread dedicated to NY issues but just wanted to inform everyone here as well that PayPal offered me a $100 voucher for my original pre-order of the TV movie parts. It took a lot of time and effort contacting them and reiterating the issue but it paid off. YMMV

Appreciate the update, I'd post that to the other NY thread too if you haven't already.

Might be worth hammering the issue with Paypal a bit to see if they'll take action despite the timeline.

You probably going to need a custom adapter for it to be able to use it.

Thank you, by any chance do you know if there are any available already?

Chaotic Yeti has yet to make one for the DX VF-1 (I believe) once he's free, not too busy with his new job and has time to design new adapters.

This is why I don't buy the PF version. In my head, I rather do all the panel linings or weathering if I want to add it. So all of it will look the same. ;) 

Or I'll just save a lot of money and send everything to @Lolicon so all of my Valks will have that Premium 'Lolicon-Special-Touch' Edition. And all the landing gears will be white. :rolleyes:

 

Man I don't even have time to finish off my own stuff, much less others'. :lol:

Be careful with panel lining and weathering. Once you start, you will want to do it to every Valk you have. The ones without it just look too plain by comparison. 
 

Can confirm. Just did a 'quick' panel lining of my copy of Roy and now I NEED to do the rest. I didn't even do a very good job, but it's HEAPS better than vanilla. I should do a side by side comparison... hmm

My mind says "YES YES YES!" but my wallet says "Ummmm, well, sure. YES YES YES!"

I try not to think of how much my Macross collection cost/is worth.

Well, at least if I suddenly need a new car I have options.

Yeah, I saw your collection. It must be quite a bit!

Yeah, that was only about a third of it, (most of) the rest is in the walk-in closet. I don't have enough space to display it all.

The biggest issue with being a collector is you need double the space - to display and then to keep the box in as mint a condition as possible too... This doesn't even take into account the multiples of copies people buy, which if displayed in various modes, is double space again :(

I am lucky enough that I have a big ol' closet connected to my classroom, so my Valk and TF boxes hide among middle school science supplies :p

Now imagine if we had taken every dime we spent on collectibles in the past 10 years and bought Bitcoin instead, we could build an ACTUAL Valkyrie with that much cash B))

Preview of the VF-1J with Fast Packs pose from Macross Chronicle.

Macross Chronicle :rolleyes: yeah, THAT’s why I got a TV fast pack for Hikaru and Max (unless Max doesn’t use one there, then I was just kidding).

I don’t think Max does but this is the cover from Macross Chronicle.
