So the shoulders are safe on

So the shoulders are safe on this one? Honestly that's been the main thing holding me back on picking one of these up..

I just bought this one. I was super excited to get it out of the box and on the first transformation into battroid mode the right shoulder snapped right off....

I notice the shoulder pin feels 'tighter' than my VF-1S Max so I think it has that bad shoulder/pin problem. =(

ive always liked the look of the VF-1A head, but this new sculp makes it look even more nimble (can a head look nimble? hmm...) and kind of menacing in that blank stare kind of way. im rambling. anyway, it looks real sharp, and im tempted more than ever to get into yamatos latest line of valks, too bad my wallet cant weather another toy purchase...

question: does the VF1-J suffer from the aforementioned shoulder issues?

I like the design of the VF1A headsculpt as well, but I remember it as the one which got crushed most often by Zentraedi bare hands. Gee, the Valks looked so vulnerable.

"At this point, you have heard all about Yamato's 1/60 scale Macross Valkyries. It's just more of the same with this release but this time in Ben Dixon colors!"

We've heard it already it's true, but we want more information on them to see if it's still worth getting based on personal experience & you're the answer.

I'm convinced with this review. I'll consider getting this baby on my want list, but I'll pass on the Toynami Robotech Masterpiece version. The thing looked like a bad Bandai model kit pretending to be a high end toy, & thankfully this one's the real thing.

Only reason I like Max's -1A

Only reason I like Max's -1A over Kakizaki's is the latter's color scheme is still too similar to the standard -1A soldier we see all the time. Max's stands out a little more with the blue.

That's well and good of course, but personally I like all 3 VF-1As except for Hayao's DYRL VF-1A. The color scheme reminds me of chocolate mints & I got a habit for scarfing chocolate mints.
