For a moment there, i read it as in the year 2022... :o

which in this pandemic, think in terms of years was pre-conditioned since last year...

I thought the same. I almost felt we'd been past April already. It's been that sort of year.

Cool.  I wonder if it will be released as Hikaru’s or labeled as just an Armored Valkyrie like the HMR.

Also TV closed fist hands.  If they’re not oversized and are compatible with an armorless VF-1, then I would be happy to incorporate them into poses.

Maybe the grey goggle is part of the armor set and fits over the the existing figure? That would make the most sense in many ways. I’d actually prefer a set but happy to save some money if they only release the armor.

With how thick that band of gray looks around the visor, I think this is pretty likely what's happening here.  That looks a lot bulkier than a simple paint application.

I didn't compare with the figure but that's the initial impression I got from the image.

Here is the image brightened up.  A separate 1J head with grey goggles would be nice for just an armor set as well.

Looks cool.  :drinks:  I'm thinking of doing more poses before, after, and in between the ones I've already made from that episode.

Hello, does anyone know what shop is ST* COLLECTOYSGOU TOKYO J ? This is what appears on my bank statement for ordering a Chogokin Super Parts set.  Thanks

Edit: Nevermind, it must be "Big in Japan" because that's the only site besides AE that has my order.  Hopefully this post helps someone in the future though :)

I'm still amazed at the articulation on these DX toys.  

You can get them shooting from prone!

Really impressive, excellent pics.  The VF-1A Max & CF are always been favorite, since I was kid.

The 1J has grey visor in that pic. Wonder if it will come bundled as a set.

 

Wouldn't that be nice! And if it's next year, plenty of time to save up some $$$. B))

@peter, those are shots are amazing, very natural poses and great use of scenery!  Where is that sniper rifle from?

Excellent work @Lolicon, as always your weathering and photography is superb. Well done! :hail:

A picture is worth a thousand words and this one says it all.  It is also making me hungry.

Though we're going to have dumplings for today's lunch. I'm now officially craving for Spam. :lol:

I feel like that needs to be Photoshopped to change "25% LESS SODIUM" to be "Itano's Original, 1000% more missiles" or something similar :)

Give me some time, let me see what can do. :good:

Hit ALL the quick meal favorites!:rofl:

Glad to be of service. :hi:Though, I did omit the instant raman and the Korean instant noodle bowls.  Maybe someone can photoshop those in? :angel:

Milia knows that Corned Beef is GOLD!  Sauté some onions, garlic, and tomatoes; mix the corned beef in; and then put the whole mix on top of rice. <chef’s kiss>

No cans have been opened, or packages unwrapped yet.  These instant foods are still MISB!

The extra SPAM is needed for Fast Pack fuel.
