Did her pre-order happen before Hayate's released?

My Hayate was delivered 1/12/22 (not sure about release date)

I PO'd Mirage's 31AX 10/24/21

I wonder why there's no heavy promotion for Mirage's unit? :unknw:


Perhaps there’s less enthusiastic response to Boque than expected so far.. and they push out more pics in the final days of PO..

But it’s great these new pics are of physical toy, rather than the 3D renders used previously. The wings appear to tag properly against the legs in Fighter, though not sure if Bandai photoshopped it as they sometimes do in the past..

I want to be optimistic somehow regarding Mirage's release. But checking Bogue's photos once again, I doubt that the origami arm design under the wing was fixed. I encircled the folding tab under the wing. Still not tabbed properly. :unsure:

You could be right about that.  But it just might be recolored Hayate body with an updated prototype head.

I also noticed the wings are not tabbed in at all.

Good catch on that @no3Ljm. So sad that these tolerance issues continues to plaque the 31AX..

On the plus side, this issue actually made me go through most of the Macross valks, stare at their undersides, and have renewed appreciation how Kawamori have designed them to have little or no kibble on the underside compared to other transforming toy IPs. It is just so much more difficult to do that for aircrafts, as their underbellies are an important aesthetic factor as compared to say, ground vehicles whose underside are usually not seen.

Mirage’s ride comes out Friday, I’m not holding out much hope for it to have these issues fixed.

It's probably why I will stop on Mirage's release for now. Not planning on completing the whole squad. If they'll do Arad's then that's my last DX 31AX.

 

Spoiler, there is no Arad version...

Remember kids, Bandai doesn't fix problems. They double down on them. It's a feature, not a bug:good:

Working for a SaaS company these days and I had to quote this because there are times I swear this is what a some of our Devs want to say. 😅

To their credit they don't, but I truly believe that they want to.

Also, I skipped this 31AX and if I could go back in time and skip Hayate's I would skip that one too.

I wish we could have gotten his 262Ba over this. Between the continuing QC issues and the hideous paint scheme of this AX, I assume this wasn't greatly desired in general.

Do you mean his red & gold 262Hs? Yeahh agreed, more 262 will balance out the avalanche of 31s so far..

Although, I prefer the normal 262Ba the rest of Windemerean Knights used, with the more normal looking wings..

Did he have an Hs? I suppose somewhere in the movies after Keith?

I was thinking of the Ba he had in the series. And we already have an Hs made, but there's no Ba variant yet in the DX line.

Ah apologies, I confused myself. I keep thinking the Hs in the series was his and not Keith's.

Well, bring on the Ba, Bandai!

Is it released this month? anyone get update?

Last I saw it was due out the 24th.  I might be miss-remembering, that's a Sunday which is an odd release day.

Good news, looks like Bandai made fixes to Bogue's fighter mode - as reported on Twitter
 

 

 

That's great to hear! The earlier video linked by @treatment above, already appear to show improvements to that area, but it wasn't that clear.

Bogue's AX didn't seem that popular during PO, but will it be now the most popular sought-after DX VF-31AX from these mold improvements? :unknw:

The drooping guns and the wing peg have improved significantly on Mirage release already. It looks about the same to me.:unknw:
