hmm that being said....wasnt the vf-31 armored over the shoulder railguns also in a similar vein?

They did telescope out, but this is way closer to the SV-262 gun design-wise.

I like the design of this Valkyrie, but I am not digging the fact that in GERWALK, the engine intakes are disconnected and the gun tonfa's are not connected to the arm....I wonder what the other side of the mission pack does?  I thought that it was a double beam cannon, but looking at it, I am not so sure now.  Like the new take on the SV-262 gunpod for the VF-31AX Kairos Plus though!

Disconnected intakes in that GERWALK pic have to be a mis-transformation right? It doesn't seem like this should be any different from the other VF-31 toys.

I had assumed that it was mis-transformed, I guess that I was drawing attention to the fact that a promo shot for a new DX toy has all of these inconsistencies that we, as avid Macross toy collectors immediately see, and the manufacturer is giving us these pics without greater proof reading.  I am excited to see your review of these toys when they release Jenius, as I am an avid follower of your youtube videos.  Cant wait to see more DX toys for this upcoming movie.

The whole, larger wing outward of the vertical stabilizers give it quite a different vibe than the normal 31A. It makes it look more similar to the VF-27 now, which in turn look like bat wings..

Bandai regularly has miss-tranformations in their promo photos.

That's a regular release. To distinguish TWE/P-Bandai items, always look for these characters and its stylized text in the description. ;)

Thanks @no3Ljm for the heads up, this will be an insane PO then, cause I think they will put the new Metal Composite Gundam Wing EW to PO as well.

most shops list their preorders with the tax included now. so it will be around the 25300 listed price.

Amazon japan will removed the japan sales tax,, but then will add in your state /city sales tax.

This will most likely be a pass for me. Why Bandai do not re-release original 31A, that make a lot of people happy.

I'm still on the fence about this release. On the one hand, my goal with collecting Delta valks has been to get just enough to cover all the kinds of things that have been released, but not complete the full Flight. So I have a Messer with Super Parts and Lil Drakens (flying alongside), Arad with Armor, and Keith with Lil Drakens. The AX is a new variant, so I can probably justify buying it that way. On the other hand, buying it would just encourage Bandai to release ten more Hayate valks as reissues, lottery exclusives, or Malibu Stacy variants instead of giving us other things we actually want.

I'm in the exact same boat. I want one because it's different. That's pretty much it. I'll wait till release day and see how I feel then (and pay my late tax if I'm getting it).

I’m debating whether I should get a good night sleep and just pay my late tax haha

The gun and special pack cannon are HUGE. Almost disproportionately so ... not feeling it.

I'm not crazy about that cannon.  Looks like a scorpion tail and kinda clumsy.  Maybe it'll grow on me.  

I think it's one of it's best features.:lol:

So would there be a "CX" version of this (Mirage Farina Jenius)?  I'm just missing the magenta valk... 🙄
