Does this mean a hiatus on any further DX VF-1 product?.....this is the second announcement of a DX from the upcoming Delta movie....in quick succession too!

The "New Hat" Hayate was from the previous movie, not the new one I thought?

No word on release details as yet.

But I would think it as a regular release, since its a 'new' version of the 31 and will tie in with the movie.

It needs to build its widespread demand first.

I'm... not sure I care at this point.  Still got the ugly jagged back end mount over the pod, and now that giant stinger, and those new wing/tail hinges look like a sloppy pile of yuck.  I don't think the giant sawtooth cuts help the wing design.

Think I'm just burned out on Delta at this point.  Maybe I'll wait and see, and pick up one or two if the demand doesn't go crazy.

Actually.. I think I might just be bored with the base 31 design.  It's not the most creative, the arms always feel whimpy, and the landing gear look like a quarter-baked idea.  I love the 31A, and the basic design is nice enough, but this doesn't feel like much of an upgrade to me.

Am feeling this is just a run on the A mold which proved it was more desired than the FW 31's. 

So am also watching to see how it turns out.

It looks like a contender for this year's christmas valk release, seeing the new movie should be released near November.

I am bothered abt the size and design of the fold quartz area..

New 31 design looks kinda boring for me.

Looks like someone thought "look! they liked colors on Kairos and his wings! New hero valks should have wings just like there, but bigger! And grey. more grey!"

Man, I don't know about these. They certainly aren't lighting a fire under my tail. I like the 31's and I have a few. But I guess they never really hit me in the gut like other variants. 

Bummer. I like getting new toys!

The fact that the show they're from is a steaming pile doesn't help. 

I'll buy them all and imagine that they're from a better show. :rolleyes:

Orders on pre-order days open at 4PM JST for the major JP online retailers like ami-ami. 

Other non mainstream retailers may also open orders before that, but it is a risk on whether your orders will be fulfilled.
However lately they also have been fulfilling orders ok. 

The best thread to monitor PO activity would be in the PO thread pinned in this section..

If the AX is a regular release there's a good chance we can just order the thing at BigBadToyStore now.  If the trend holds.

It will probably be less expensive to get it directly from JP.

And if BBTS does carry DX's how do per orders work?:unknw:

I'm in for one, if not that exact version, at least one of the other paint schemes.

Is this the exact same mold as the vf-31A?  Are there any differences?  Do we even know yet?

It is not the same as the 31A: there's the much more aggressive saw tooth on both wings and canards, different mission pack, and extra large beam guns that are no longer integrated into the fuselage.

Personally, I think the original 31A was a prettier bird, but I do like how the new FP's look and will hopefully get a few of the AX's just to put the FP's on.  I especially like Arad's new ride, but Hayate will do for now :)

Cool! ;) And once they decided to upgrade the Kairos Plus to a Kairos Plus Max version, post a comparison pics and videos as well. You never know, it might feature a bigger Fold Crystal for wider coverage. :lol:

I feel like we’re talking about iPhones now. I need the 31-AX Max Pro XS
