    I know you guys mentioned it a bit and I hate to bring it back up again but here's Bandai's supposed statement regarding the tampo error and if someone would be able to translate it is much appreciate it

    Also they did mention something about the be the next batch or so but what do they mean by that I didn't think they reissue as often or if any?

    They sometimes make another production run to address issues(like the DX YF-29 Alto 2nd or 3rd run with upside down "SMS" print). I wouldn't expect it soon but who knows.

    The best way to translate is to download Google Translate on your mobile phone. It allows you to take a picture of the text and have it translate or even do it in real time using your phone's camera.

    This is the second message I've seen. The first one floating around simply states that the 100 tampo is intentional as it looks better in Battroid. This message also states that it was intentional but that they would take the feedback into consideration. I haven't seen any text yet that claims there would be a rerun with fix or even a fix period.

    So, he's guarding the microwave? You must have some great food in there! He's like, "Back off of my food!" :D 

    He's awesome for sure.

    The use of lazy acronyms is destroying our ability to communicate. :( 

    Yahoo! Japan auctions. Many use proxy services like Buyee to place bids.

    Googling YJA does not in any way point you to yahoo Japan auctions @Flapjacks .

    same with NY. Or MWF.

    Let me do another version.

    The inability to determine sarcasm (by use of blue text) in Transformer World 2005 boards is destroying our ability to communicate :( 

    Using the blue FTFY was meant to be sarcastic and humorous on my end. I tend to find them funny when I see the blue text response in other threads but that's me. I tend to pick up on things because I read through pages or backtrack on topics/toys I'm interested in. I wasn't referring to google per se but rather the information picked up by reading through topics here. Besides, using acronyms doesn't destroy communication. It furthers it because the dialogue continues.

    Back to Macross stuff...

    you think they'll re-release the strike pack for when the vf-1a's start coming out cause if bandai seriously wants us to buy them ahead of time, then...i honestly just don't know how to react given that it's around $100 when importing and it'll be 3 that we'll need to get and thats not including the ones for hikaru, fockers, or maximilian vf-1s

    Maybe and maybe not , they could very well just release a super Dx vf-1a hikaru combo. If you are planing to get them anyways then you should just preorder them now when it’s still msrp. Or if you are in lack of funds , then maybe preorder what you can now and then try to buy the extras later if needed (as long as you are ok paying more for it later )

    Bandai made 2 p-Bandai batches so the probably of a reissue is low at best .

    Hi guys, I got a 3rd DX VF-1S coming, but just needed 2x.

    Letting go for how much I got it from Nippon - $420 NZD (approx 264 USD according to google)

    PM me and I'm sure we can work something out and can let go for a bit lesser on what I have paid [​IMG] Payment would be via paypal and item will be shipped from NZ. I think shipping is around 52 usd to the states.

    EDIT *SOLD*

    Hey @Jarrod How exactlly did you remove the foot to replace just at the ankle? I removed the one screw that is in the joint that connects to the ankle but the foot still doesn't come off. Looking at it closer, it seems like there is still something holding the foot on from the two sides of the slider where the screw came out of. Can you help me out here with some more details or guidance? Thanks!
