    I suppose you are talking about the YF-19 vs the VF-31S. I’d only base it off the YF-19 set retailed for 25,000Y and the VF-31S for 21,000Y so if they were available somewhere for the same price, I’d go with the YF-19. That and there is typically only one style YF-19 to get and it comes with an arsenal of weapons you can use with other Valks and there are a whole rainbow of other VF-31s that you can choose from.

    There is no competition for the YF-19, whether it be a tf or a Macross.

    Hey I've got couple things I want to sell.

    HMR VF-1D unopened $100 shipped in US

    HMR VF-1A Hikki only opened to make sure it came with the correct super parts for the legs $110 shipped in the US

    Arcadia VF-1S Hikki. The one that came with the stand instead of supers. I bought it used from Manda I think. I never took it out except to take pictures of the inside for this sale. Was going to decal it up. Got too lazy and bought the PF instead. $210 shipped in the US.

    First VF-1D DX shipped from BIJ. 6100yen for ems--pricey. Surprised that they don't offer dhl or fedex. Should be here in about a week. Ended up being about $293 shipped.

    Some posts from MW DX VF-1d thread via the following links below:

    @lethal injection - Look in Mandarake's Macross subheading in these following days as this will be up for grabs at around 24k yen (not including S+H). Make sure that it can be shipped to where you are.

    I'm sure that there will be extras floating around as members here are willing to sell off their extras.

    I had told myself that I was satisfied with the VF-19 Advance, but I was able to grab a YF-19 DX Fullset on Manda for ¥24000. Shipping was a bit expensive, but even after that it was about 300 which is way nicer than the current eBay price.

    BIJ usually doesn't have stock after pre-order, so you won't see it back in stock. In fact, at this point it will mostly be available for a back-tax fee where scarcely available: DX Chogokin VF-1D Valkyrie & Fan Racer | Bandai Spirits

    You can check Amazon Japan as well for 3rd party resellers.

    There are a couple right now. But none are shipping directly to the US. So you will need a Tenso address.




    And man, I'm such a child! I've got 1D's coming from three different sources but none are moving fast enough for my tastes. Must have new toys now!!!!:p
