    Yeah, me too, though I suspect it will still be very difficult still. I think it's inevitable.

    Someone from MW posted these. I really like the little men with the ladders. Would be nice if they came with the super packs. Regardless, the armoured pack is so freaking bought. Can someone translate those cards if there is any decent info? Might be too small :(

    Looks like the boob cannons are going to be separate attachments.

    I'm with both of you on that brothers. All I know is that when SydneyY translated the initial scan where the armors were shown, it said the armors(cg of super and armored messiahs were shown), it said that the armors would be TamashiiWeb exclusives. A credible rumor came through not too long afterwards, that all the armors including Tornado armor will be TamashiiWeb exclusives.

    I would rather get a bundle, bundles kick ass. That 1st time opening my Bandai 2002 VF-1S Super Valkyrie reissue was like the Werther's Original commercial where that grandpa tells his grandson how he had his 1st piece of melt in your mouth butterscotch candy.

    Me too.

    I had that feeling when I opened my 1/60 VF-1S DYRL anniversary set. Been chasing that feeling ever since.

    Probably right. My v2 VF-25F came with one leg that was ridiculously tight, and the other just average. The tight leg is still stupidly tight, and the other leg is now looser. I've been playing and transforming this thing nearly every day since I got it though, so I guess it's to be expected mine would get so loose already.

    I also transformed my VF-27 to battroid this morning. And yeah, things are now loose on it finally. Kind of flops around. Bandai really has to find a way to prevent this sort of thing, like using ratchet joints, etc.

    Dude your 25F is exactly like mine! I'm tempted to use the clear nail polish trick.

    Hi. I'm thinking about buying the Yamato 1/60 VF-22S Max type. Are there any known QC or design issues that I should know about before taking the plunge? I don't want to end up spending a lot of money on an inherently defective toy.

    Thanks!

    Actually all VF's are Valks, it's a common name for any VF, it's just that the VF-1's primary name was Valkyrie.

    Is that right?

    I used to think so then I noticed that pretty much every variable fighter has some sort of other designation, i.e. . .

    VF-0 Phoenix
    VF-1 Valkyrie
    VF-4 Lightning
    VF-9 Cutlass
    VF-11 Thunderbolt
    VF-17 Nightmare
    VF-19 Excaliber
    YF-21/VF-22 Sturmvogel
    VF-24 Evolution
    VF-25 Messiah (YF-25 Prophecy)
    VF-27 Lucifer
    VF-29 Durandal
