    Animation doesn't have those huge wings? Animation magic?

    I got in an order for the Super Ostrich through Anime-Export.com.
    Strange thing is that it does show up in my account's order history, paid for and everything (¥ 38,800), but it doesn't show up at all on their website anymore. Ususally, they keep it visible on site, even when the item is marked as 'sold out'. Oh well.

    I'm assuming they'll still honour the orders made while the original listing was up???

    Emailed my buddy in JP too see if he could get me one direct. Fingers crossed.

    If he can't I guess I get to pay the markup after release. Yay.

    The VT-1 is still available directly on Bandai's page, so if you missed the preorder on J Etailers, just go the proxy route, the limit is 6 per order.
    So this actually might be selling slowly in Japan.

    Wasn't p-bandai cutting down somehow on proxy buyers for their stuff exporting out of country (I dunno if it was through limits but I remember some talk about that).

    That's encouraging. It's still available for preorder at Luna Park. Hopefully, this means Luna Park will be able to fulfill all their orders.

    Macross Modeler Showroom with the shortcut change HG YF-21 shown in the later half:


    Still not sure which VF-1J model is shown in the beginning, looks smaller than 1/72

    I'd imagine so.

    Thanks, fixed. My apologies. That's what you get for staying up late. ;)

    So what's the word on the VF-171 revival? There looks to be a glut on yahoojp and there looks to be some still available at some of the japanese etailers. Im interested if this one doesnt fall apart

    Wait for a proper review for the re-release DX Alto 171ex Full Set by Jenuis on his YouTube channel Scorched Earth Toys @jackisking.

    It’s too early to tell if the re-release is better than the previous version that was issued years ago as a two parter. The valk was released first and then the add on set was a Tamashii Web Exclusive.

    Are they straight re-released or is there a slight change? For example after the initial release the only other time I saw the VF-1J was with the PB&J armor.

    The re-release 25 and 29 has the improvements @chuckdawg1999 as of now, however it depends on which assembly line in the factory puts them together as it’s too tight or too loose.

    As for the other big companies that also make collectables, it’s up to them if they want to make improvements to the previous iteration of the product and issue it again or not.
