    While Haya Haya's 31J is readily available for decent prices here, Mirage's 31C is disgustingly overpriced. I'm more than happy to substitute some 31AXs for the series' fighters.

    31C is the highest right now following by 31S, so I too am very happy about this AX

    Whelp... got my notification for both of my Sound Booster 31Js. I'll have an extra one if anyone is interested in purchasing.

    Nice shelf @FireSkyJet ! I appreciate a display that isn’t too packed. :) 

    I noticed okini still has the standalone 1J armor set available new, if anyone is looking:

    DX Chokokin Armored Parts set for VF-1J

    also I’m not sure what’s up with this listing, but they have brand new Arcadia YF-19 sets listed as in stock:

    1/60 Perfect Trance YF-19 with Fast Pack

    it says it’s the version that was scheduled for release in august, but I thought both regular and Premium Finish versions had been delayed? Anyways if you’re looking, seems they’re taking orders on it.

    @FireSkyJet Very nice display!

    That reminded me though; I really need to add an SDF-1 to my Macross display.

    I haven’t been following too closely, the 31ax seems to be a straight repaint as the Kairos mold? Just different mission pack?

    @deruberhanyok - From what I understand, the AX is the upgraded version of the Karios with different sensor packs.

    The valks from Delta Series is not on Macross Mecha Manual as per Noel’s post on MW (not the Black Aces guy), however it’s on Delta’s wiki page.

    thanks! Was just talking about the toy though - the technical in-universe stuff is all fold crystal magic anyways. :)

    Woah, I might have just rewatched this a few months ago, but I’d totally support this on the big screen domestically

    Hot damn, the deco on Mirage's 31AX is sexy. Have they changed the forearm guns on the mold for 31AX? They look different...or maybe I just need to put my glasses on more often.

    There's more than that as well: The canards are new, the arms look to be all new, with extra bicep armor. The forearms guns appear to be larger as well, and from older pics, the way the arms store in fighter mode is slightly different. The fold crystals are new as well, and I'm pretty sure theres a few other little minor cosmetic differences Im forgetting
