Just got charged by HLJ. Only EMS available for now to Mexico.

They charged me 8680 yen for the GBP combo and 2 other small items.

A compatriota! 

That wasn't as expensive as I thought it would be, got charged for my GBP combo too but it's gonna stay on my PW for a little while

Hobby-Genki sent mail that Armor only is in stock and asked me how I would like it shipped. Today is a good day.

 

BTW: Has anyone tried to put the GBP Armored VF-1J in a detolf yet? Wondering if it's too tall.

Thanks!

Totally fits, even on the stand, no problem.

Pretty nice kit. It would be nice if the missiles came out (and I'm kinda happy I don't ala Yamato and self ejecting missiles every time you sneeze). I would love for Bandai to release a missile effects set. The quality seems good. Not out of this world. Nothing wrong with it either. I'd say it gets a 9 out of 10.

Mostly I'm happy the armor doesn't self eject ala Yamato.....thank goodness.:lol:

Used a extra S as a stand in until one of the full sets I have on order comes in.

Not thrilled with this pose. Something isn't quite right. I'll have to sort that out over the next few days.

Pro Tip:

Take the intake/compressor covers off and stow them before you put the armor on. If/when they fall off (one of mine did while putting it in the cabinet) you can't get them back on without removing the "diaper" portion of the armor. Easier just to remove them and stow them in the box.

My update from LunaPark:

Yes, the item official release day is today (25th September)
 
DHL does not pick up parcel in the weekend, it will all be shipped from Monday.
 
we are expecting our US / Canada customers receive them by the end of September.

Great tip! I've seen one of the reviewers on youtube do the same.

Just paid for Fedex shipping from Okini Land for the GBP-only set so I'll have that in a few days. Woohoo!

Also had a set on order from DeJapan but given that I had to CC dispute and get my money back last month, it'll probably be the same thing again.

DeJapan sucks. Don't use them if you actually want to get your stuff.

Noted; that's gotta be a royal pain...

I have a feeling that @Saburo will be posting his shots here when he gets the time (and maybe with the plush Bio Goji to boot) or will @tekering beat him to the challenge.

While I appreciate the association, I couldn't hope to challenge Saburo.  He's got, like, an actual camera. :unsure:

My only advantage is geographic.

I've never put an armored Valkyrie on a stand before, but...

...I've never had a GBP this articulate before, either! :D
