  1. Bump this; I completely forgot about this and still have the valk gathering dust. Anyone interested?
  2. Playing with the idea of selling my last 1/60 Valk. As in the title, this is the 1st release Arcadia Toy from 2013. It comes complete with the stand that was only released with this toy and the desirable water slide-decals unused. After I bought it, I was able to obtain some loose Yamato super/strike parts and added them to my toy. Box is in pretty good shape, has some dings but no major rips or anything. I'm mostly interested in $ to finance other hobbies. Negatives: Sticker sheet applied (I think I did a good job) but if you don't like it, you could always remove or add water slides

    Wondering what are the odds that Bandai carries this line through other series, like a revival of the VF-19s/kai and maybe the VF-25 series. Would like it if I could "standardize" my Macross scale at 1/100
  4. i'm in the bay and can pick up if the current deal falls through

    Geeze, save some for the rest of us!
  6. With the caveat of limited examples I feel as the Arcadia is overall better; my Hikaru has much tighter arms and joints compared to my two v2 Yamatos (not that they are loose or anything)
  7. UNICORN!!! Why am i broke right now?
  8. So I reached a odd place in my collection. Over the last 2-ish years I've managed to collect 6 1/60 Valks; 3 v2 Yamarcadia, 1 V1 Yamato and a couple others. So as we all know, over the last 2 years, the cost of the 1/60 scale has grown exponentially with no sign of relief. Some of the oddball VF-1 Variants will probably never be re-released by Arcadia as they seem to be concentrating on low run, high cost toys. So I got excited when the Hi-Metal R line was announced. Finally a chance to get things like the VT-1 / VE-1 / Etc for a "reasonable" price. Except that it's not that easy to get

    I have to say that i'm again very disappointed in this line. When it was announced I had high hopes of collecting a variety of VF-1 variants for something approaching a reasonable price (~$100). The first couple of releases were pre-order madness and now the aftermarket is jacking up the prices to near Yamato V2 levels. The 1S Hikaru is trending on eBay for $130, which is about what I bought my Arcada 1/60 Hikaru for in early 2014. (I found a dented box one at a discount) I love Macross and collecting toys; it's been enjoyable for a long time, but lately I feel like selling off my collect

    Sorry for being lazy, but does anyone know where one can get a 1J or 1S for a reasonable price?

    What site was that?
  12. Seriously, I hope everything works out for you and people overbid the crap out of your stuff. Please get better and post up some more.

    The ability to actually buy it...

    I'm reserving judgement until I get my hands on one, but it's pretty frustrating. Can't really order/preorder. Scalpers on eBay aren't a solution. It's kinda sucky that a $75 today is being resold for $125 or more, which is like a 200% markup!.
  15. Nice! I'm usually not a fan of weathering, but that looks awesome!
