I would recommend AE any day of the week. They delivered my 31A with no issues.
NY's shenanigans with Arad's 31s is total unnecessary fluff.. That's literally the price of the Karios or the Chronos.
Lol, to make up for how useless he was as a team leader.
I use both but prefer NY because they have lower prices and cheaper shipping options.
I've used both many times as well, never had problems with either. Just wasn't sure which is the safer bet for a TWE item.
As far as I know, neither has not delivered TWE items in the past. NY had that issue with the 31A taking a lot longer to send all the orders out but in the end they still delivered.
Yeah, Nippon Yassan are just capitol A holes with their price gouging. Guess I won't be getting an Arad after all.
I recently find myself watching too many DX VF 31 reviews...
Once the preorder listed it shot up. When the preorder date was announced they were still available on Manda but every hour they started to disappear pretty quickly. I caved and picked one up from Manda for 22k yen which I think was retail price.
Go with AE, they are a better service. You can also go with any proxy service like From Japan.
I'm gonna be visiting SoCal in a couple weeks, any recommendations for shops in LA, San Diego or Palm Springs I should check out? I'm on the lookout for Hasegawa models, Hi-Metal R, Arcadia and DX Chogokin figures
There are not any shops I know of to buy Macross items but I highly recommend you check out Frank N Son as it’s a collector’s haven.
There are a couple booths that carry some Macross but they don’t specialize in it so you have to keep your eye out.
Gotta go to Frank and Sons in City of Industry.
What Hi-metals are you looking for? I might have some extras.
Smaller destroids mostly, I've pretty much got all the VFs I need, as well as the Monster, Regult and Glaug
I'll definitely try to check that place out, I googled it, and I think I'll be able to make it on the saturday before I leave town
Let me know which ones I think I still have some destroids
There is a Destroid from Amiami for grabs if your interested @Face.
Item A/Box B for 6.4k yen - AmiAmi [Character & Hobby Shop]
It's a step up over all the DX Macross Frontier valks, primarily because it's got a more secure torso in battroid mode and much more secure legs(the hips use ratchets instead of ball joints). Out of all the Bandai new-mold DX valks since 2008, I like the recent DX VF-1 most with the either the DX YF-19 or DX VF-31 2nd to it. The DX VF-31 could've used better articulated hands and ratchets for shoulders but otherwise it's solid.
I'll pm you
So I got a pretty decent bonus from work and I finally bought a VF-19 Advance! He came in today.
I should have the new VF-1J by Friday. So excited!!
Very lucky to have the money for these bad boys. They are so expensive!
Nice! Where did you find the illustrious VF-1J? I keep debating if I want to do something about that now or just wait to see if they mass release again to bring the price down.
There was a "sale" at Solaris Japan. I got him new for $307. Compared to Ebay, I thought it was a good price.
