    Naaaaaaah. Metal Build PO night doesn't come close to the madness of Macross PO night.

    Oh wow, mine shipped too. Looks like mine will be here on Tuesday.

    Edit: I forgot that Amazon Japan estimates on the slow side. Plus it is one day in the future. AJ said Thursday, but DHL says Tuesday.

    Just checked out Wave model VF-1 Multiplex Kits.
    I almost bought it. Good thing I checked the reviews.
    So the wave kits are mandatory to be painted.

    I'm a lazy ass in terms of painting kits and prefer straight builds like Gunpla.
    Thanks God I manage to avoid it :lol

    Metal Build has a wider area of distribution and is much more available even on PO night, even with Evangelion as I have experienced. You miss Japan PO night, you have North America and EU POs. Macross is in Japan only. You miss PO night, expect to pay marked up prices unless you get lucky on release day.

    Most likely after the upcoming Tamashii Nations Exhibit in April/May (don't know the exact dates). Might show the long awaited HMR release, newly refined DX YF-21 or the next DX VF-1 variant.

    You’re speaking to my animal spirit right now!
    Just curious, have you experienced a recent DX 1/48 PO night from any of the VF-1S? I mean I just scored EVA-01 for about the same as MSRP with EMS ship from stock that The Chosen Prime is getting in March. That doesn’t happen for Macross let alone having an American company sell at or about MSRP a year later or at all.
    This.

    Well I would't use the term "going for" in this case. That implies it's actually selling.

    People ask all kinds of crazy prices for stuff on ebay. I remember last year some dude was trying to sell the OG vehicle voltron for like 10 grand.

    Damn, some say when those things grace our shelves it's the most important day of our collecting lives.

    But for you, it's just a Tuesday. Salute!
