1/60 Scale Macross Zero VF-0S : The Arrival

To err is human.
I'm no exception.

My intention on purchasing this particular toy was short lived a single letter; 'A'.
I intended to purchase the Yamato 1/60 VF-0A, but due to my carelessness, I end up with VF-0S.

Not that I'm complaining. The only different between those two are the colour scheme & head mold.

More on the VF-0S on the next entry.

Yamato announced that they're be releasing the reissue of the 1/60 scale VF-0A and VF-0S from the Macross Zero series.
I asked the local toy shop whether they'll be bringing in the reissue, & the answer is a disappointing 'don't know.'

Apparently there's a silver lining to the predicament when I browsed the online hobby store, AmiAmi etc.
No only they selling at a discounted price, but EMS shipping is at half price, & when I checked the price sold previously, the online store is cheaper.

So I pre-ordered it late February & made the payment late April.
Due to Japan having their Golden Weeks Holiday, they can only shipped it on 6th May.
Today the package arrived.

The package is humongous!

Protected by few bundles of paper & wrapped with bubble-wrap.

Speechless when I saw the goods. Wasn't what I hoped for, but excited nevertheless.

I was on my way to Ipoh Perak on an assignment when it arrived.
Will do a proper review soon when I get back to KL.
