So...."CVS101" markings means possible DYRL GBP version?  If so, I hope it is another combo with a movie correct VF-1J...

I now have higher hopes that Bandai will go with the combo pack for a TV Super VF-1S Hikaru-Type.....or at least they should definitely do the combo pack for the Max and Millia Super VF-1J's...

Looking forward to the next PO announcement!

First review

 

Really, really amazing!!

1. The tampoes make the armor look much more detailed than any previous Armored implementations.

2. The missile exhaust vents, a topic that was brought up recently, has some sort of grille surfacing details.

3. The sculpt looks perfect. The base valk has the line art accuracy, yet with the armor it morphs into & captures the exaggerated anime proportions well. The oversized hands are hilarious yet look so right with the armor. I'm comparing with Arcadia's VF-0. The 1/60 VF-0 and Bandai's 1/48 VF-1 are about the same size, both base valks look really great, yet the Armored results between both are so different. Bandai's really captured the anime feel, whilst Arcadia's has some strange proportions that doesn't endear so well.

4. The VF-1 thigh side-joints really find purchase here in getting around the traditional leg articulation limitation of Armored valks; we finally get to have the Armored in stances that we couldn't have done before.

And for the Trivia nerds-that Takani GBP art piece that went up for sale 10 years ago-that is owned by Tenjin now. :)
He has mentioned before it is the spark that made him what he is today.
I'm calling this the Takani edition for those large hands LOL

I can feel the chunkiness already from the video. Ooof this is going to be one center piece display. Bandai is the tampo king.

Even though the Armored is one-mode only, we still need multiples. One to outwardly pose display, another to display from within its cool box windows, and a 3rd for just-in-case. :p

One to send off to be custom painted into Roy’s GBP.

I was originally not planning to order this one because I'm not a huge fan of the chunky armor, but I ended up pre-ordering the set and I'm not regretting that decision! I do not own a DX VF-1J yet so this is a double new release for me. That box is very nice as well and I did not expect that. The only store available to me at the time was NY so I'm a little nervous but I have received everything I ordered from NY so far and they seem to be improving lately so I still have hope this will come through.

Well, that convinced me to get the pack on Amazon Japan...

The box looks damn nice with the windows and fold-open!

Did you get the one that ships directly to the US? Did you get any info on what sort of shipping it is? As far as I can tell it's not Amazon/DHL.

I have one coming from Luna Park (in theory) but I want a second. I'm not sure when to pull the trigger. I was hoping something would come up on AmazonJP with Priority shipping on or before release day.

The figure looks gorgeous! 

It's interesting that the missile caps on the arm don't seem to come off when they do in the hips. Also, I wonder if any of the missiles are removeable but I guess not since it hasn't been mentioned.

Oddly, the most impressive thing to me is the wings actually lined up well on the copy used for that review.:lol:
