Another lovely MB, I love how the segmented armor on the legs split apart as you articulate the knee. The way that all the joints were kinda hidden or tucked into the sculpt is really awesome. I was lamenting the lack of any ankle rotation, but then realized it was hidden into the lower leg. I was wishing they had a hinge for the wrist joint, but then realized the entire wrist socket is effectively a ball joint.>>6877156
Webshop preordering is usually quite reliable. I've preordered a ton of stuff and the VF-31A is the first time I've had any sort of issue. I never would have expected a problem because I always figured that paying upfront meant securing a figure Bandai was making to order, but as you say, we don't know how NY and co. are using our deposits to secure figures. Definitely has me wondering now.
If it's really Bandai's fault for under-producing, I wonder if that means there are individuals in Japan who are getting refunds from Bandai for missed VF-31As?
