    Mirage's valk head looks like an S version with double lasers and a forward horn/antenna.

    Edit: so does that mean she's squad leader now? So has Arad decided to retire and eat his snacks in perpetuity? Lol!

    Definitely a new head. Looks like a new gun pod, and new over head weapon pod/container as well.

    Watch out for the clear plastic stands for Kang Klan's feet as they might crack over time. Now you need DX Michael VF-25g to go with her as a couple at arms! :p 

    Another thing: Klang Klan's voice shouldn't revert into a small child if you have been de-micronized. Vocal chords don't get don't stay stay the same as people age through out the years.

    I did notice that the armored Klan is finicky as all hell and you need like 5 hands to hold it together while positioning it...lol

    Holy shit! Have you ever heard the phrase, “she looks like she got hit in the back with a couple of torpedoes”? Haha. Nice looking figure.

    Based on that pic, your DX VF-1 collection is already at least 3x larger than mine...lol. I do love these things, though. I honestly feel I’m getting my money’s worth with them compared to so many other things out there. Welcome to TFW, by the way!

    Just a quick shot of my meager fleet of valkyries. Upcoming additions will be a Yamato/Arcadia 1/60 VF-1S and a DX VF-31E

    These things are not worth the money imo. Will I get a yf19 if there's a reissue? Yea. Is it overpriced as shit, fuck yea. Anything over 150 shipped is highway robbery for these things, imo.

    Yeah, keeping this collection small instead of when I originally collected and was grabbing EVERYTHING. I'm really glad I found that old Yamato stand buried with my Gundam stuff for the VF-4. I printed up a Bandai gunpla-style stand for it and it wasn't designed with the odd weight distribution of the VF-4 in mind. Hell, the OFFICIAL stand is a little finicky with it. Once the VF-1 gets here, hopefully the stand will work better with that, otherwise I'll have to hop on eBay or something to see if I can grab a second one for it. REALLY appreciating the stands Bandai packs in with their DX valks.
