Armored Parts for VF-25S Renewal Ver.

When news that the VF-25S was going to be re-released, I quickly searched for a used set online before prices would shoot up to crazy levels. It still wasn’t cheap, but the price is probably reasonable compared to current levels. Either way, it’s still kinda dumb when the add-on set costs way more than the main figure itself.

This thing was sealed and even came with the original shipping box.

DX Chogokin VF-25S Renewal Ver.

Thanks to my topsy-turvy life this month I didn’t have time to settle down and take pictures of my acquired holy grail last week. It’s quite a long story though, maybe I’ll leave it for the end of the post or something.

This time round I managed to squeeze out enough time during my rest. My new room doesn’t really have much table space so I had to move a lot of stuff away just to set up the background. I only have enough natural light in the morning, and the rest of the time I had to rely on a tripod instead.

As this is mostly a recolour of the VF-25F which I reviewed earlier, I’ll skip on a lot of things and jump straight to pictures.

Holy Grail Get

2014-11-30 19.33.52

Following this post in which I mentioned I managed to get in a preorder at HLJ, they dropped the ball and being the desperate idiot that I was, I went to buy one off Amazon instead.

Life has been pretty topsy-turvy since I moved to Fukuoka. There isn’t any internet in my dorm room and I had to rent a pocket wi-fi dongle. It doesn’t have great reception but it doesn’t have a data cap and has kept me sane this past month while I wait for the cable guys to come and install the necessary infrastructure so that I can have some proper internet. Also, I’ve been made to do shift work for about a month as part of my training program. I’m not exactly doing any work but it’s still making my body clock a mess, and things like weekends don’t apply to me for now.

I’ll try to do up a review as soon as I’m free. I usually post on Sundays, like today, but I’m leaving for work soon – doing the night shift tonight.

DX Chogokin VF-25F Renewal Ver.

Got this guy during the ordering frenzy over a year ago when it was re-released, paying well over retail on Nippon Yasan. When I received it the box was already busted up as you can see below. I finally decided to open and mess with it. As the previously-reviewed YF-29 shares many similarities with the VF-25 series, I might gloss over some details.
