Thanks Izzyfcuk!

The VF-1S ended up looking much better than I thought it would. Those new golden stripes on the arms look very nice and the coloured visor and cannopy are very welcomed.

The YF-19 also has the new stripes, cool.

Can we see pics of the YF-19 pilot?

nice, thanks for the pics! I can't wait till I get mine in my grubby little hands.

question: Do you have the yf-19 head stuck in that odd way in the fighter mode because you're afraid of scraping that gold paint? Is the gold flaky?

Did they spell 'Excalibur' correctly on the YF-19?

Mine are all wrapped up for X'mas, so I can't check.

Thanks Izzy. I love the pilots. I can't wait to see how the Vf-1s looks in GBP armor.

I hate having to wait. :angry:

It's too bad the LAF doesn't get then in right when they are released.

You would figure, for an almost $200 toy, that Yamato would at least spell the YF-19's name right. Jeez...

the only thing that interests me are the pilot figures.

gold = gawdy

i mentioned yamato spelled excaliber wrong when the pics first surfaced.

i guess they just didn't care.

maybe we should all pitch in and get yamato a copy of Word or something. Or hell, just email them the url for dictionary.com.

I guess the lesson is: Never underestimate yamato's ability to frak it up.

I can't beleave that they kept the miss spelling, I can't spell for sh#t and I picked it up on the first pic's and they couldn't be bothered fixing it. That's a big turn off on the 19, not that I'm getting these anyway as I don't like the colour scheme, but really Yamato could have got a spell checker. If I did get any it would have to be the VF-1S anyway as the 19 just doesn't seem to fit with the 25th anniversary IMO.

Now someone needs to make a correctly spelled decal for the 19 to replace the engrish. Pretty poor QC for such and expensive collectable considering it was printed right under their noses, this fault should have been corrected on the prototype.................Yamato what the hell are you doing?

Should just do it for a joke, they might get the message. :lol::)

I was thinking the same thing but is there going to be a secound release or are these limited editions?

I think Graham talked about them being limited. But Yamato could still make the "25th Anniversary Non-Engrish Limited Edition version" :lol:

I am really trying to like these. (I do not know why, because I can not afford them).

But I just can not bring myself to desire them.

I much prefer the VF-1 Stealth version with variations of black and Grey.

And for the YF-19 I would have preferred a Vampires Scheme similar to the Stealth version.

I guess I can thank them for making something that I do not want. Now I can save up for the ones that I do want. There are plenty of those.

looks kinda shiny to me...in the preview pictures it seems to me that the black was more of a matt-black than shiny-black...is that because of the lighting?

I'm with you there, I was really hopeing for something really spectacular but I just can't bring myself to like these. But your right that there is plenty of yammies that I still want and not getting these make purchasing the 21 easier, need that for my M+ collection so I'm not concerned. I'll build a Hasegawa VF-1S strike battroid and make up some 25th anniversary decals. PeteB's VF-4 came up a treat and really looks like an anniversary piece. :)

Phew good thing I didn't pick these up. I almost ordered a 1S just to make a stealth 1S. But with the green-tinted visor... oh well :(

I just placed my order for one of each. I think they look pretty cool and the price was hard to beat. I got the VF-1 for $129 and the YF-19 for $165.

My last couple purchases were over $200. These seem like a bargain!
