Wish I would have known about

Wish I would have known about the 2009 Limited 05 release being an improvement before picking up this version. This figure always felt like a freshmen effort into Muv-Luv figures for Volks, especially when compared to later released figures from the A3 line.

Looking forward to the 2009 Limited 05 review since from what I can gather from the Volks site it incorporates many of the improvements Volks made with other similar A3 figures.

If you get a chance to review the standard Type-97, be prepared for all the same early shortcomings as this figure.

Always looking forward to seeing more Volks A3 reviews.

The EF-2000 Typhoons are worth a looking at.

I actually didn't know myself

I actually didn't know myself and shortly after receiving this one I found a Joint Strike Package that came with a bonus.

Volks archive

I'm sure you've already checked it out, but the Volks A3 archive is a great resource for anyone interested in seeing what TSF's Volks has put out and what features they have. Looking back, they did mention on the site that the 2009 Limited 05 had upgrades, I just missed seeing it.

Also, far warning for would be collectors, the smaller more narrow boxes (with a grill like window) come with the same figure, but barebones accessories. So they can be a good way to get a would be pricey figure for a little less. Plus the accessory packs can be bought separate. However, it almost always seems to be a better deal to get the standard issue set with all the accessories in tow.

My A3 fleet of TSF's is up to 16 (and growing) after catching the Muv-Luv collecting bug from some of your earlier reviews.

Yes I have seen the Volks

Yes I have seen the Volks page before. I even thought about buying direct from them while they still had stock of A3 figures. As for the narrow boxed ones, I reviewed the TMC F-15E Strike Eagle and noted the differences between the TMC and A3 toys. The TMC Shiranui is based on the Joint Strike Package one so it's another way to get the upgraded toy but it is made out of a different kind of plastic.

Look at you guys with your fancy websites. Some of us have to make do with a folder full of links to old message board posts.

Edit: I realized this comment might look weirdly hostile to anyone except Veef. All the official FAF sites have been scrubbed from the internet, and my notes on the line are a horrifying jumble of old links and fan sites.

Look you've seen those dolls. I think we know which property was Volks's favorite.

I was trying to find out how many dolls from each respective series were made, and now I want to stick forks in my eyes and I still don't have an answer.

Well I know they made a Kasumi Yashiro and Meiya Mitsurugi and probably also Sumika.
