  1. The Newbie and Short Questions thread

    I always see where the VF-4G made its appearance once in a particular side profile clip....but no one ever mentions the desk model of the lightning sitting there when Lisa walks in on Rick/Minmay hookin up....plus it has a blue paint scheme....
  2. Any tips on weathering them? I would love to see that process.
  3. Curious if anyone ever applies the supplied decals that come with the valks? If so, can you post pics?
  4. YF-21/22 Transformation Question

    Bummer. Hate to see that. I really wish Arcadia would come out with the YF-21.....Im sure they could improve on so much
  5. Yahoo! Japan - Experience?

    Awesome thank you so much. So I need to go through Buyee. Hah. I'll make sure not to bid on anything of yours unless it has to do with Macross Zero. Do you need to look for specifics on shipping? What is a good average price to ship to the US?

    So what is the estimated ETA for the release on the ride armor? Pre-order kind of thing? What price do we think its gonna debut at?
  7. Yahoo! Japan - Experience?

    Curious if any of you have made any transactions on Yahoo Japan? I thought about bidding on something but do not have any experience using it. Anything to look out for? Easy to use? Not easy to use? thanks!
  8. Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014

    Heck yes! I just had a recent thread going looking for this neck piece. Person who sold me their YF19 failed to mention it was missing the neck piece. Thank you. Just ordered this
  9. Whats next for Arcadia?

    Tell u what....if I owned a pair of Yamato M&M, I'd be selling while the demand is hot. I watched several people hold out on selling the VF-4 when the prices were stupid high. Then arcadia re-booted the lighting and prices flopped on the yamato. I've collected a lot of things.....funny how this hobby ....the vintage toys go down in price once a re-issue comes out. In the majority of the collecting world, most original vintage 1st issues are so much more valuable....whether it's comics, skateboards, etc. Here it's the opposite. Fascinating
  10. Whats next for Arcadia?

    Wasn't the YF-19 mold just as old?
  11. Whats next for Arcadia?

    Bummer. So another year before the possibility of the YF-21 or VF-11b.
  12. Arcadia: Can we expect the YF-21 & VF-11b?

    A thread that I started back in 2015! Hah. Forgot all about it and I do apologize!
  13. I remember a few years back, everyone was discussing the likely next move was Arcadia creating a reboot of the VF-4 Lightning. Prices on the Yamato version were averaging $800 - $1400. And per everyone's speculation, the re-release came out. So FF a few years and what are we looking at now as far as a possibility of what will be released in the coming days? Do you think Arcadia will reboot the YF-21 or VF-11b? Since they already did the YF-19, we can expect they will probably work the realm of Macross Plus...IMO. Your thoughts?
  14. 1/60s: Magnets for attaching armor

    That almost makes me want to buy a Yamato over the Arcadia
  15. 1/60s: Magnets for attaching armor

    So I own the Yamato VF-11b. Why on earth did they (Yamato/Arcadia) not use magnets to hold armor/super packs on with other models? This works flawlessly and does not fall off! And so freakin easy for assembly/disassembly! Why would Arcadia not use this method currently? In my opinion, this should be a given. Like someone trying to use a square wheel when we have a proven round one. I'm sure this has been discussed in the past. I don't get to spend too much time on here as I do love collecting some of these but not all. I have too many other hobbies to dedicate all my time to one (80s skateboards, vintage 4x4s, etc) So are there other Yamato or Arcadia models that make use of magnets or no?
