    Hey look, I finished a thing!

    Wave models 1/72 VF-4 squadron, Hikaru's is the initial release while Max and Milia's are the second DX release with the additional missiles. It's worth noting that it doesn't look like Wave accounted for how the VF-4 transforms when figuring where to mount the reaction missiles, because, yeah... They would kinda get in the way of the legs

    Anyway, they're pretty decent models, I really enjoyed the build!

    Available at Kuramatoys at scalped prices. I didn't expect that from them.

    Give it a few weeks. Amiami restocked the DX VF-1A Max 2 weeks after release IIRC.

    The fact that HLJ is taking orders again for the DX SV262, DX Messer VF-31F's, DX VF-31E and the HI METAL R Hikaru VF-4 gives me hope. Maybe Bandai did HLJ a solid or vice versa. Nice to see those available again quite some time after release and not at scalper prices.

    Hmmmmm... I mean I don't think those ever really had that much high of a demand compared to the rest. I see them floating on the secondary market for close to retail.

    HLJ just had a few preorders up for 1S again but couldn’t snag one in time. Damn thing is still sitting in my cart

    Same same. In hindsight, I'd rather get one from AJ if possible especially with the cheap DHL shipping.

    Yeah, so I’ll at least have one extra NY one to sell later if others don’t land here. But I got that one at first round markup

    Well, well, well.

    Congrats to those that got DX VF-1s Hikaru before "Order Stop" at 18k yen. I'll guess that we will do it again for Roy's DX 1s right? :D
