I’m willing to pay more for a first run, that’s what I’m trying to find
I cringe every time I click on this thread, Im broke as a joke and I just know, somebody is going to post that he's up on Amazonjp for $200 like max
As much as I'd hate to say it, you could always try e-bay. But you may have to contact the seller to find out if what they're listing is for next month's release. Unless someone else knows of somewhere else, that's all I got.
So, did anyone other than me and @Flapjacks purchase VF-1S? Any other news of them shipping for ya'll?
I don't know of anyone selling the first run anymore. My guess is that you'll see people flipping them after they actually receive them.
My VF-1S from NY is due to arrive soon
I’ve been watching the Amazon Japan listing out of curiosity, watching the seller prices slowly drop down. Same thing happened with the Max VF-1A.
I stayed up with you all trying to get one only to be thwarted with cart jacking and timeouts. I tried since I missed out on Max and wanted any DX VF-1, but didn't realize how crazy it would be. I'll take one if I can land it at cost, otherwise I'll leave it for those who really want one.
I have one at NY but haven’t gotten a shipping notice yet.
The only problem that I've seen is a lot of those sellers lowering the price are either new, have a low number of reviews, or not the best rating. When it comes to Amazon, I feel like you shouldn't have a rating lower than 98%. This isn't eBay. It's Amazon, ya' know? It's interesting to watch.
Yup. Got a shipping notice from NY for my VF-1S on Monday.
Watching Amazon Jp all the time too. I won’t buy from anyone there but Amazon.
Nice roll call. Looking forward to seeing pics.
Amazon took their sweet time getting them to me, but I received my VF-1S shipment today:
Puts the ol' Yammie to shame, of course...
...but I do think the tempo is a little overdone.
I especially hate the fruity font Tenjin-san chose for the pilot designations...
At a glance, it always reads as "Lieutenant Tokyo."
The cockpit screen could've used a little color, I think... but it's better than nothing, right?
I love all the ways you can style the hair.
Again, puts my old Yamato to shame...
...in more ways than I care to mention.
Brilliant pics! Looking forward to getting mine. Can’t wait to see those pics again once Strike Parts come in.
Same here. I'm still watching AJ like a hawk to try and get one for a friend, and maybe a 2nd one for myself after that if I can.
I should be getting mine in about a week or less as NY just shipped mine out
I bought my 1S from Anime Export, and it shipped last week so I should have it Friday at the latest.
Oooh those photos are awesome! I was laughing away over here with the hair comments. Plus I would like to thank you for the close up of the head and I can see the details they put in with the cameras and sensors in the "eye" area. It really looks beautiful and glad you got one. I'm with @FireSkyJet with hoping you got the strike package to take some shots of Yammie and Bandai together.
They did a glorious job with the head.
all my DYRL Yamato 1/48's are that same lovely shade of white/yellow.
