    Dude to me, I wanted it before, BUT most places sold out. I mean sure it only showed up for a few seconds but it is important, PLUS you can turn it into VF-X-1! That to me, kicks ass.

    Important as it's the "1st 2" VF-1's made in Macross canon. Also, it looks like a low viz, hence another reason why I wanted it.

    After this I might go after the Angel Birds and Max 1S.

    Enjoy, the VF-X is awesome. I broke down and got one from BBTS a couple of months ago, even though I wasn't going to buy any more 1/60s. Glad I did, its quite lovely.

    :lolol 

    That brother of yours must've been found in a dumpster. No love at all! :lol 

    On a side note, I always forget that I should time my overseas purchases. I should buy at the beginning or the end of the week. If I order mid week it always takes an extra day because of Sunday.

    I'm glad I did too, it sold out quick overseas! Hell BBTS, last time I checked a few days ago, only had 4 left.

    So I was looking at my DX VF-25F Renewal next to my VF-0A, and wow that VF-0 is a chunker, it's big! Not a bad thing.

    VF-25 looks less aerodynamic/realistic to me in fighter mode. I like it buut I prefer other fighter modes, like the VF-11. VF-0/VF-1/VF-3000/VF-11/VF-25, interestingly enough, look like they have the same design lineage....all F-14 derived with SU-27 influence starting with the VF-11. It's also cool that the VF-0 bridges the gap between F-14 and VF-1.

    Well I went and done it last night boys! Got me a VF-11B! It was on sale @ tisinc99. I'm assuming it is 1/60 as the description said it was around 9.5 inches tall. Ugh, now to start saving for that renewal!

    My wife bought me the chrome Yamato stand from them for cheap years ago. Usually their prices are astronomically high but every once in a while they have a good deal.
