Well, they technically show pics for both versions...maybe they will split the releases into TWE and Regular releases like they did with the HMR Super M&M....but probably will just make you build your own Super M&M with TWE FP sets....:unknw:

 

Hey they also suggest a VF-1D VR edition!

yeah, i'm excited for the wedding valk!

You wanna sell one of your MSIB VF-31As?

Honestly, I got within a few hours of listing all of my doubles after getting 5week's notice from my job.

However since I've now got something new lined up it's gone onto the back burner again. Plus don't quite have the free time to arrange a sale at the moment.

wow, bandai's trash. they going to release max and miria w/o supers, i called it first.

Could they? Given the specific color on on the boosters and the leg.

Also they would need to make those regular releases and not jusy WE.

I would like to have some TV parts for my Roy. But I don't see a future where I pay for after market prices just for an accessory.

Everything they've done with super parts in the past (the vf-25 and 31) would indicate regular release standalone toys with TWE super parts.

Im cool with some red super parts so I can put them on a VF-1S:lol:.   

But yeah, TWE for superparts , even if its just for 1 specific valk seems to be the norm for Bandai.

Everything?

All we know is that there has never been a Japanese M&M "DX" type PT toy release that did not include the Super Parts since Takatoku released the 1/55 Max and Millia VF-1Js.....but the Maruyama and other Bandai releases show that there are exceptions to eveything Bandai does....heck, if you want to include more recent releases than the Takatokus, you can also include the HM VF-1J Max, the Bandai re-releases of the Max and Millia VF-1J...or even the Toynami "Masterpieces"...for some non-Super-Packed releases....

My money is currently on naked releases...but would be very glad (would prefer) if they went with combo packs...one regular and one TWE, because why not....both methods are now getting just as difficult to acquire these days anyways....

Might as well put up the page-1 pics of that TD thread since it had lots of other interesting pics:

Wish @Kurisama can update his previous Shapeways work to a 1/48 version of the Macross The First VF-1J head to fit the DX figure. :rolleyes:

Yeah, I know what you mean. :lol: But that's how it is this time for me for this DX 1/48 VF-1 line. And it's why I only have Hikaru's VF-1J and VF-1S. I didn't PO his VF-1D nor planning on getting his VT-1 if ever there will be one. ;)

oops...thought you said the DX VF-1A Hikaru would be the last one you'd get in the Bandai DX line?

Maybe Bandai will decide to sell it as a combo pack only! :good:

Yup. That's the plan. :hi:

Unless I misunderstood the 'Gotta Catch 'Em All' phrase with the pic of the Skull Squadron implying I should get everything? :rolleyes:

Hopefully it's a combo since the DYRL SSP doesn't have Hikaru's VF-1A modex number.

I fully expect the future VF-1A/S releases to just include the matching modex roundels for the boosters, unless Bandai just repeats how they did the original HM releases, and we get the rest of them as bundled web releases.

My only concern is if M&M have WHITE accents, and not the hideous grey like the latest HMR's.  

The gray/white is less important to me than Bandai taking "liberties" with the entire scheme based on individual animation frames.  I'm half expecting them to take another completely unique take on the entire scheme, just because they can. <_<

Anyone else has a feeling that a Hikaru TV VF-1S with Super parts giftset is in the plans? I mean, that valk release itself is a must for a Macross toyline, while Bandai has to add an extra to differentiate it from Roy Focker version.

If Tatsunoko hadn't done such a poor job establishing the color scheme in the first place, Bandai wouldn't have so much varied animation reference to work from. <_<

Yawn.  I just want the other 2 VF-1A supers in HMR.  I don't have PO for the VF-1D or GBP-1S, will see how available those are around release time.

I wanted to ask if anyone who ordered the 2nd release of Super Parts from Big in Japan have you received your sets via DHL?

Oy vey.

I ordered some TV super parts from Okini land. I've heard nothing from them since. Those have been out for a while, right? I just bugged them about it, we'll see how they respond. But I assume it's going to be a cancelled preorder.

I'm so out of the loop. It sounds like the GBP armors were just recently on order and instantly sold out?

If your order is the 2nd batch then the release date was 04-23-21.  So it only released recently and then there’s the holiday so it will be shipped out soon .

I got mine in last week.  Think I remember a few others on here as well getting theirs around the same time from BiJ via DHL.

Has anyone made a repro of Kakizaki's exclusive decals set yet? They are marvelous, but I don't feel like getting the whole toy for them.

To my knowledge, no. I've received a small number of requests to do one, but given the amount of time involved in making a new set, it's hard for me to justify right now.

Hi, I ordered from them and received mine at the end of last week.  They did send me a message asking for payment of shipping fees before sending out.

 Aside from the pilot, they only need to replace the name in the canopy.
