Amiami finally sent me the payment link after another email for any other members who are still waiting. Now just wait for them to ship. With this I am finally done with this line. Hikaru's 1S, Roy's 1S and this 1J armoured is a good way to say goodbye to this line.  😄

You'll be back.:p

So, now that VF-1J combo packs are popping up for around 32000-ish on Mandarake, I wonder what effect that will have on the Standalone VF-1J Prices (between 34000-42000 on Mandarake) other than to go down

hmmm.png.46fa1e59e0e11339fe6fcb73365251b5.png

One brand new VF-1J was sold for 34,035 yen in YJA. If they have a low starting price I think that´s how the market will behave in YJA.

Mandarake will probably keep same prices, the 34,000 yen one was a used item with some details.

One used for 27,500 yen

Until they announce a VT & VE lol!

You're going to need to be more specific.

Actually, there's no need to specify, 'cause every DX VF-1 release to date has sold out.  Regardless of what Valkyrie (or accessory set) you're after, the secondary market is your only option.

Good point. They are all sold out at retail.

But some retailers do have new units still in stock (at above retail pricing). Then there is the secondary market where everything is available for quite a bit more money.

Right but not too bad of a markup from some of those retailers.  I only paid around $30 USD more than what the pre-orders were going for so I can't complain.

We're still not sure he's talking about the GBP. Kinda makes it hard to give a smart reply to the OP.:D

Just rewatched SDF Macross.. I regret not buying the TV Max DX. Oops! Oh well. Maybe sometime I'll trade an unopened GBP Armor + some cash for a Max.. I SERIOUSLY Doubt theres any chance of a reissue of Max VF-1A TV version.. There's nothing to add to it to resell it.. Unless they want to add a 'missiles on the tailfins' edition :D

They are going at auction for about 30,000yen, still semi reasonable.  Go through a proxy and get one.

This has probably been discussed in previous threads already,  apologies if I'm beating a dead horse: what is the difference between the Max yamato 1/60s & the Arcadia 1/60s?

I'm sure the correct thread for that discussion is buried somewhere, but check out this link, explains it all in detail

Not sure where to post this. I saw on Twitter that Bandai had a QR code you could scan at NYCC this week to do a survey about Macross toys in Canada and the U.S. (possibly other locations, not sure). I just did the survey and I thought some of you may be interested. I assume they are trying to figure out what to sell outside of Japan?

Thanks for posting!  Lol, I filled out the survey, told them AJ and HLJ are good for macross purchases, told them Nippon Yasan stole my money.

 

I know, totally unrelated, but figured it couldn't hurt for them to hear that.

 

Also asked for them to do an SDF1, a 1/48 VF-1A cannon fodder, low vis, also told them I wanted their 1/32 VF-1J prototype.....lol, it was like a list for Santa.  Unrealistic but fun :)

Not a bad little survey, I was tempted to beg them to start painting landing gear white, but I don't really want them to start now and have to rebuy everything to match :lol:

I did say I really wanted them to get the YF-21 done, and do a VT-1 though, and put a final note that they need to release a weapons/fold pod pack for the VF-31s, since none of them have anything to use, and asking people to buy another copy of Hayate's plane just to get the pod is silly.

What a glorious way to self plug, eh Jenius? LOL!

Are you coming out with any reviews soon? I’m assuming you are getting the GBP-1S for the Bandai DX VF-1J and VF-31J Fold Equipment set? I check YouTube and Anymoon for your reviews almost daily.

very exciting time with Bandai asking us in the USA what we want…..

I don't know if I've ever said this but your channel is awesome.  It's fair and it's informative.  Once in a while, something NSFW pops up, and I got the stink eye from the wife, but all in all, good stuff.

What's up with anymoon website though? It's very slow and many pictures are broken.

As for DX wishlist, I really want Super Ostrich and Bandai's take on DYRL SDF-1

The slow part is beyond my control, I have noticed it going down and coming up a lot lately but I don't know why. Email or PM me when you come across broken pictures. I think the last update to Wordpress broke a bunch of things but I have no way of knowing what is and isn't working without clicking through it all... and while I'm doing that, it will take forever on my own.
EDIT - Also, if anybody with web skills does know some tricks I can do to improve either of these things, let me know! I'm just a content guy... everything else gets quickly beyond my skill set.

I like the metal gear as is.  I see it as a nice little callback to its chunky monkey predecessor.

Am I really the only one that begged Bandai to complete their Hi Metal R Destroids and enemy mecha?

You certainly are not the only one.   I also mentioned the Phalanx, Tomahawk, and Queadluun-Rau by name.

I filled out the survey last night too and did my best to give props to all the sites I've visited over the years: MW forums, Anymoon, Macross2.net, as well as the company sites (tamashii.jp and arcadia.ac--why not?). For the "wishlist" question, I noticed that they asked about units AND characters, so I went all out.

I'd love to see a DX YF-21, VF-11B/C, VF-19 Kai, and VF-11MAXL. An official VF-9A/E release would be sweet (as much as I'm into Xigfrid's transforming model) as would the VA-1SS, and I made sure to mention the TV SDF-1 just for good measure. I also explicitly asked them to keep going with the Macross Hi-Metal R line and called out the HMR Tomahawk, Phalanx, and Qeadluun-Rau, as well. If nothing else, it would be cool if they released every Macross HMR that they've teased.

For characters, I would be ecstatic to see more SH Figuarts beyond the Macross idols: Roy Focker, Hikaru, Misa, Claudia, Mirage, Britai, Quamzin, Bruno Global, Max and Milia, Isamu and Guld, Nora and Ivanov, Shin and Mao, armored rank and file Zentraedi...yeah, even poor Kakizaki. For unrepresented idols (at least from Bandai), it would be nice to see them release their own Minmay or maybe Myung and/or Sharon Apple. Having a complete SH Figuarts set of the Fire Bomber crew would be awesome too: Basara, Mylene, Veffidas, and Ray Lovelock. Ah, if only...
