    Arcadia 1/60 Perfect Transformation VF-0D for 2015

    For those who own a VF-0D and a Arcadia YF-19 (or Bandai VF-19A), can you post a pic side by side in fighter mode? I am curious to see how big this bird is. Thanks

    Bandai VF-19 Advance....!!!

    Thanks, Barurutor. I was having a hard time trying to attach a pic, hence I saved them into flickr instead. One thing I noticed from my Bandai: - the right wing metal bar clicks when I rotate the wings. I didn't hear the same click on the left wing. I recalled seeing the same message across other members where left wing's metal bar doesn't click From quick comparison: - The gaps on the legs in Bandai (between the shield in fighter mode) is an eye sore. Arcadia won on this part. Kind of wishing that they either make the top section of the leg a bit wider or make a wider shield. - Amount of Tampos. Bandai won this hands down. Hopefully Arcadia will take notice of this and implement it on their future release. The comparison pic made Arcadia's look really bland. I like both versions (Arcadia and Bandai), each has its' own strengh and weakness. Will try to attach the fast pack booster tomorrow and see if the right booster has the same issue

    Bandai VF-19 Advance....!!!

    Finally had time to open the box of Bandarcadia (got it last Friday). Haven't had a chance to transform it yet. I also pull out my Arcadia and upon comparing and holding the two (swooshing thru the room), I noticed that the Arcadia version is a tad bit bigger and heavier. Not sure what plastic materials used in both toys. Below are shots of each valk in its' weight in grams.

    LOL on the "Banana bend" and "Bancadia." I'm going to start calling the gunpod as "banana-pod" cuz of the bending functionality

    Oh, a transfomer masterpiece perceptor. I got it. Re Tesla: We'll be able to buy a cheaper version in 10 yrs

    If $200 Euro is including EMS shipping, that is still a great deal. Pretty sure a lot of us here pay at least $210 USD even with the cheapest price at HLJ w EMS shipping

    Nice. Hopefully those who couldn't get one can get one now at a reasonable price.

    Bandai VF-19 Advance....!!!

    Yeah, not to mention that it's cheaper by 4K Yen (around $30ish). You can pretty much get it shipped via EMS for 28K Yen, which brings the valk price to $233ish. Wonder if Bandai decides to increase manufactury qty due to demand. Quoting a member's post here: I guess folks are underestimating the power of Isamu.

    Go go go for those who still wants to buy one.

    Bandai VF-19 Advance....!!!

    For those who already has the toy on hand: Can you tell firm how many diecast content located in Bandai's VF-19 Advance? Is it more or less than Arcadias? From watching Bandai's video, it seems most of the leg is diecast (kind of similar to VF-25 style) For those who still want to place an order, Nippon Yassan has it back in stock (though they raise the price ) http://www.nippon-yasan.com/product.php?id_product=10446

    +1 to this too. The secure link order worked for me as well and payment was requested by HLJ.

    LOL. That's a lot of spending. Re Tesla: r u getting the battery or ordering the gull-wing car?

    Thanks for posting the pics. Glad you got your VF-19 Can you see which parts of it are made from diecast? I think some members here also wondered if the backpack are made from hard plastic or metal? Now go around your home and do some barrel roll
