    I’m sure they’ll reissue it without the flight stand

    I’m sure the new VF-1 mold will be used for at least a few more different releases.

    Still the case and bookmark the DX VF-1J Hikaru pages, IIRC preorders opened up again as recently as last week. It's looking like it's going to be one of the easier, new valk toys to obtain. I haven't seen anything like that have preorders reopen that frequently in a long time. Usually with the DX's, after the initial sell through the orders open up on the day of release. With the DX VF-1J the preorders reopened up a lot more.

    In addition, some places limited units to 2 per customer where many times before they were limited to 1.

    Hell none of the releases from this year were anywhere near as difficult to order as the Macross Frontier DX Renewals.

    Hey all! I got a used G1 Jetfire Valkyrie over the weekend, on the cheap. He is missing a spring in one of his shoulder joints, looks like. Anyone have any extra, or know where I can get one? I am in AZ. TY! 1220603983.png

    @Jarrod I'm thinking .50" diameter? Mentioned you since you might know.

    Ratchets are a lost art! Hope Bandai shoved a bunch into the new DX

    try THE HOME DEPOT or the like, for a roughly equivalent spring.

    this was essentially what i had to do back around 1999/2000, when i came across a JETFIRE of my own, with a missing arm.
    i was able to acquire a replacement arm online, but it was missing it's shoulder spring, so i had to head over to my local hardware store
    and find myself a compatible compression spring, sold, then, in packs of five.

    while i have not shopped for anything of the like since, i indeed assume you ought to be able to find similar luck
    at whatever large department hardware store you may happen to have nearby,
    as i imagine general demand for small/medium-size compression springs couldn't have dropped off too terribly much in the last 15+ years now...

    It looks good I just wish the black stripe was higher so it struck behind the center of the kite rounded rather than towards the bottom. I'm itching to see the complete accessory count, I want to know if the gunhands can retract into the forearm instead of having to be swapped like the Yamcadia 1/60.

    Also hope Bandai doesn't stop here and pushes out other obscure valks in the line, like the bad ass VF-3000.

    @Shin Densetsu Looks like Bandai came through and allowed Nexx's custom gunpod can fold up properly without part swapping.

    btw.

    as noted over at MWF, it seems the HMR Nexx comes not with a Capt. Nexx pilot figure, but with a not-Capt Nexx pilot-figure:

    Could be Hibiki (or Dennis) pilot figure.

    Good job, Bandai...:gen069:

    Cool, I just got the payment request from AmiAmi, even though my October order haven't been paid yet (that ES Gokin God Mars is holding it up, but I guess it didn't announce the new available date, they can't move that item out or something).

    Hell yea! Now if only they could've added an arm armor that could actually store the regular rifle instead of using but a faux part
    LOL freaking Dennis....a dead guy!
