    Fun Fact.! But did you know that antenna/head laser broke off in the Movie?? It happen in the scene when they fought in the City for the last time. I noticed that awhile ago so maybe Bandai had it planned to break off lol jk

    Hah, it's been so long since I've seen the movie. Something I need to rectify.

    Well, they are all about screen accuracy. At least except when they aren't.:p 
    You should try to find one of the special variants with broken head laser but don't pay more than $600 for it!

    Welp, NY just responded (or should I say I just saw their e-mail). Looks like I'll be getting in my last 2 SSPs sometime next week as well as 3 missile sets too :D

    Nice! I finally got them to issue me a store credit for both my orders and switch to ferry. No shipping notice yet (they said they would though).

    If they're prioritizing those who paid for faster shipping...it might be a bit. Hope you get yours soon though. These things are awesome!

    Whatever works :D  I have to contend with porch pirates so the peace of mind knowing when and where it will be delivered is more or less worth it for me.

    Got an update from Mr. K regarding the PF VF-0D:
    『VF-0D フェニックス Premium Finish 発売!』
    • Compared to the original release, the PF has side covers for the knees to fill the gap in fighter mode and the collar covers for the top of the chest plate
    • Painted the inside of a cutout area on the back of the lower legs orange instead of painting the part of the vertical stabilizer that goes into it, orange.
    • Despite being made to order, it’s still using a mass produced mold so they were aiming for consistent paint quality
    • The reason why the PF VF-0D release was postponed was because they had a series of exchanges with the factory, pointing out mistakes and what needed to be changed. This happened quite a number of times. This went on for a year in an effort to improve the quality as much as possible.
    • Mr. K thinks the delay was worthwhile as it made this release stabilized with higher quality.
    Article ended with a picture captioned with “SEE YOU AT THE NEXT PF ITEM!!”

    Quick suggestion: This is a public forum with lurkers. I wouldn’t post the link next time. Of course, many of us scan the same listings but on the other hand it can enable someone to purchase.

    Sorry you missed on that man. But you might be able to find it cheaper anyway. I got mine from AmiAmi like 6 mos after release I think? It was sealed but in their preowned section and at MSRP or just about.

    I gotcha man and thanks for the advice. This thread itself is so peaceful I figure maybe someone else might've been interested. Just extending my olive branch as others have tried to help AND ENABLED ME (you know who you are lol;) ) but I totally know where you are coming from and thx for looking out. I seriously dread that day when the DX YF21 comes out as that's my favorite Valkyrie/Plane from the series. Maybe good Karma will get me that:) .

    That's how we roll around here and most of you guys know it.

    I've helped out so many people here (and also MW) with deals or missing items from their own collection otherwise they would have skipped over it.

    First person that I helped out here was @Slave IV has he was looking for a 1/48 Yammie VF-1J Milia Full Set. The second one was @dafob on the 1/60 Yammie Max Q-Rau. After that one, I totally lost count since I posted and you guys here seem to snap it afterwards! ;)

    Your broke now so how am I going to help you out?? Maybe cut off TF collecting and starting saving for Macross items instead.

    That's what I'm doing and I think what's what @Slave IV is doing to a point, however he's got too much crap sitting in storage and still getting stuff regardless...

    Still not impressed. :sly:
