    Good luck with that normality thing... :thumbs2:  my wife just gave birth 3 weeks ago to my daughter and the concept of normal is going to need a total reboot... :sly2: 
    And definately a damn good idea to have them preorders in BEFORE the arrival. Otherwise i'd be explaining the VF-1D, the Cavaliers, the Voltron classics & 1/48 Metal Gear Rex for the rest of the year...:wink:

    From what I have heard, 'normal' only takes about 18 years to return! :thumb

    VF-1J w/ option parts.

    AmiAmi [Character & Hobby Shop] | Yamato The Super Dimension Fortress Macross 1/60 Perfect Transformer VF-1J Hikaru Ichijyou w/Optional Parts(Preorder)

    VF-1S TV Version w/ option parts.

    AmiAmi [Character & Hobby Shop] | Yamato The Super Dimension Fortress Macross 1/60 Perfect Transformer VF-1S TV ver. w/Optional Parts(Preorder)

    May release. I like that the side panels are white to match the rest of the valk.

    May is going to be super expensive. I already have the Yf-29, a Figma, Revoltech, and now the TV VF-1S coming. That's over 26,000 yen before shipping. And that's just from Amiami.

    So since most fans are over VF-1's, can we assume these won't sell out?This seems like a move from Yamato aimed at 30th anniv hype, & at new or closet fans who missed out on the V2's or for completionists that need a new 30th box & new option parts.

    I've already bought the optional parts (repro'd) via MW, so I'm not too upset with the new release.

    Back in the day I would have bought all of these so that I could have the different boxes and the option parts. Right now I'm just buying the 1D so I can have a second one. One I plan on having with the option seat parts and the other I want to have on the arm of the 1S.

    You preordered 171 things a few months ago, when you knew you were having a baby? You crazy!

    i have a 3.5 month old baby that i take into my toy room to distract him and calm him down.... i think of my new macross toy purchases as an investment for his future enjoyment as well as mine.

    That's when he's older though, gotta find a padlock for the room when he starts to walk around

    So this is a real shot in the dark, but I don't suppose anybody in here has a VF-0A they'd be willing to part with would they?? My 1st. release 0A has been armless for some time and is stuck in fighter mode as a result. I'd love to be able to display one in battroid mode again *sigh*

    I'd even be willing to trade my Blackout Custom for a second release VF-0A
