I think we'll all get the answer in October/November when the solo GBP Armor unit is out  @peter;) 

I sort of want, but I wasn't all that stressed that I failed to get one during the pre-order. 

The hands, and even the feet and shoulder extensions just look a bit odd to me.

I think the balloon hands are exaggerated a bit too much, lol!

 

They look like giant sausage fingers.  I wonder how it would look with fixed pose DYRL hands?

They are quite exaggerated, but they do mimic the ARII model kit box art well.

Not juat the hands are a bit oversized. I wonder since when the size of the shoulders started to grow in size. Even the Anrcadia VF 0 reactivate armour has huge shoulders compared to lineart.

I have always liked this rendition the most

I swear I posted this before, but I guess not?  Or was it deleted because it was inappropriate?

Ohhhh....I like that one.....guessing that's a resin kit that goes with the Hasegawa battroid.....do want, but don't want to pay the collector price, which I imagine is high.

It's a custom build commission using the 1/72 Hasegawa kit as a base, made by professional modeler for the Dengeki Hobby magazine...you see the process in the spreads after.

Top is okay but the leg armor needs to be bigger and buffer! -_-

He skipped leg day. Although in comparison modern valks like the vf-31 are anorexic.

I am super excited to get my hands on this thing. 

I think the packaging is going to be relatively large.  I wonder how it will compare to the Yamato 1/48 SSP Combos?

 @spacemanoeuvres - I'm guessing the packaging for this beast will be possibly the size of the DX YF-19 Full Set or the DX 31s Arad + the Silpheed Armour boxes combined. 

I can tell you that the DX VF-1j + GBP set will be around the same as the Yammie 1/48 GPB versions (however the chest on the Yammie 1/48 GBP units sits on top if the collar bone notches and prone to be easily knocked off when handled the wrong way).

Edit: I have the Yammie 1/48 Stealth 1j with the SSP and also the Low Vis 1a with the Urban City Cameo GBP that I can do the comparisons when I get the Full Set at hand or if anyone can do it besides myself, then let's see this pics!

Bandai is pretty good at packaging , The DX VF-1J + GBP combo could very well be the same same size as the First edition VF-J / VF-1s roy that comes with the free flight display stand.  The GBP will just need to squeeze into the space about the size of the Flight display stand box. :lol:

Or Bandai can sent the entire DX 1j + GBP in a shoe box and save the extra $$$ for other big ticket items. :rofl:

That's probably going to be the case, or like the YF-29 Full Set Pack. Bandai is pretty good at packing things tight when they really want to. The smaller the better, cheaper shipping and easier to hide from your s/o lol.

There is no way that this DX 1j Full Set will be like the DX YF-29 Alto Full Set @leeboo1211

The GPB Armour itself is too big and bulky (and we're talking about the same size of the Yammie 1/48 GBP unit itself).

i am expecting shipping to be 60~100 ish a pop via fedex / DHL. It'll hurt especially if SAL/ EMS alternative is still not available in the fall

Heads up EMS will be resuming in July, but with massive 20% surcharge. See thread:

Isn't Beer/Liquor and Tobacco sponsoring banned in some countries around the world if I recall? 

Now it's Real Estate, Life Insurance, Auto Manufacturing, Sports Brands, Clothing Company et all that does it now. 

So it may have to be changed to make it properly adhered.
