Bandai DX GBP Armor Set and VF-1J Armored Valkyrie - NO PO LINKS or PO TALK Thanks!


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Based on the pic and 1982 BW copywrite...it currently looks like it will be a TV version.....

Hoping it is a combo pack but maybe they are going the KitzConcept route.....either way PO madness may be upon us again! :good:

Hmmm. Same thickness on the goggle. At this point I'm thinking it would be nice if they just include an extra head on the set because I rather just get the armor part set. But if they decide on making a bundle set, then atleast I have an extra VF-1J. I know it's going to be expensive if it's a set. Oh well.

I am hoping its a cover for the visor/goggle or replacement head.  If it turns out to be a full bundle, I’ll pick it up anyway, but my wallet is not going to too happy about it. :wacko:

This is literally the only reason I have a 1J...so I hope it's sold separately! If it's a bundle then it's gonna be close to $400 MSRP no? 

$400 maybe, but that's after market. VF-1J's MSRP was Y18000/19800(JPY tax). VF-1 Strike/Super Parts was Y8000/Y8800(JPY tax). Since GBP has more plastic and paint details than Strike/Super Parts but somehow less compared with VF-31S Armor at Y16000/Y17600(JPY tax), let's estimate the price for GBP, if it's just the parts, somewhere around Y14000-15000. If it's bundled, then we're just playing with a total of Y33000+/-. Which in today's US$ conversion, it's $303.

I hope they release 2 versions...one with a bundled vf-1j and a one that is a stand alone armor only package, because then the die hard collectors will have to buy 2x to be complete...and Bandai just doubled their sales! 
LOL  :)

It's gonna be pricey! I'm questioning if I'll actually be able to afford it if it is a complete bundle.

If it's offered as only the GBP, I'll probably skip since I don't have a 2nd VF-1J to put it on.

This describes me and I’m okay with it.

Just 2x?

Have you not heard of the Collector's Mantra?... ;)

Good luck with that willpower! 

I'm in for another preorder night, it has been too long since the last Macross-focused "event".

Hahaha.. fortunately I'm not as hardcore as the rest of you guys. That and the lack of space. :lol:

Whether it is bundled with VF-1J or a standalone armor pack, we are all gonna buy it and Bandai knows this :D

I had really hoped the next announcement would be the YF-21 instead of more VF-1 stuff.. but if the recent BW-HG deal means a bit more time needed to work out a worldwide release of this YF-21, then all the better. :good:

  • jvmacross changed the title to Bandai DX GBP TV Armor - Coming Soon!

Probably, but i am pretty sure that, like what happened with Roy, there is going to be a short second wave of pre-order(with a slight mark up) and it shouldn't be too expensive to get after the release. I feel the market (for SOC, DX, etc.) is somewhat in a down phase.

Armor only release -->Current price of existing VF-1J release goes up in resale market

Bundle Armor/Valk release --> existing VF-1J release goes down in resale market

Am I missing something here?

Well that and Ebay will flood with them at semi-decent prices.  You can still pick up a Roy for around the $319 mark on there.  I think the original TV VF-1J release is over $440.
