    Not officially the title but I figure I might as well borrow the name since it pretty much sums it up...

    These are from blind packs and only these two "transform..." And I use transform in a loose sense here since there's a lot of detaching and re-attaching of certain parts... They come one per blind pack along with a little stand and extra parts for the different modes... Keep in mind there are three other figure options in these blind packs and they don't transform, but they're poseable... I'll take pics of the box too...

    I got Roy's VF-1S a while ago and figured what the heck, I'll try my hand again today at one of the local import stores... Luckily, I landed Miriya's VF-1J (red one...) What I did was I shook the box to see if I could hear any of the parts... These ones that transform have more parts and you can hear them distinctly in the boxes as opposed to the other three non transformable ones that are made of the same stuff as the PVC TFs, I believe...

    Here's the box:

    The two on the bottom right on the back of the box are the ones that can transform... The two on the left and the one on top can't transform...

    Here they are in fighter mode:

    And here they are in guardian mode:

    Battloid mode:

    And here's all the parts...

    The only difference in parts between the two is the head pieces... The VF-1J has only two laser cannons as opposed to the VF-1S which has four... Oh yeah, and the laser cannons on the robot heads can swivel...

    Those are sort of cool, I like the jet and gearwalk modes better then battloid. Can you take a pic of them standing next to something for size?

    Thanks for the size pic but the question remains where did you get them? One of the shops in Japan Center in SF? That place in Milpitas next to the Amtrak station called something My House. Damn I forget the name of that place.

    Yeah, Milpitas???:lol 

    KMH is by the train tracks in Emeryville... The Amtrak station is a bit further towards Oakland... The nearest thing to KMH is the USPS distribution center, I think...

    Edit: Hmm...I just want the two Valks though, not necessarily the set of 5.

    The blind packs were $8 each but keep in mind, this was a local import store which means inflated prices...

    That means I'm almost better off to get the full set on ebay... I'm not really in the mood to ebay stuff today (or ever, really)... I think my friend knows of an import store somewhere around here...
