Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014


Recommended Posts

Seriously, nerd-linger, you just came up with a way for Arcadia to sell nine of these (including the original scheme) to me.

lucky you that you evidently have $3000.00 squared away to pay for them all... :p

i mean, for something around that sort of scratch, i could have my own custom 1/1 Mikuru-chan♥ made... :wub:

- sure, clothes would be extra, but that's where the thrifts would come in... ;)

I'm not one to brag but I have a lot more money than that squared away. ;) However, I would hope these things are spaced out a bit... I don't know if I could justify that many similar heads (don't look at all of my VF-1's, don't look at all of my VF-1's...)

Mammar; - ohgodohgod, just go on ignoring all my silly little toy airplanes honey. :D

- i won't ask about how much all those shoes must've cost, so feel free to go right on ahead and scratch my back in return, babe.

one good turn deserves another after all... :D

Mammar's Significant Other; O.K. Dear, what precisely are you trying to hide from me... :angry:

Mammar; OH S%$T!! :ph34r::o:unsure::(:ph34r:

Shaorin; :D:p:D

So what kind of loser would buy that? It's more pathetic than even a real doll.

I agree... What the hell else would people here on the toy forum be talking about between toy releases!??! :lol:

maybe info on something that's going to actually be released :lol:

jk, the photoshop pics are nice!!! so shop away!!!

Certainly didn't want to talk about nor see pics of creepy dolls!!!

furthermore, few at YAMATO or elsewhere seemed to ever realize that one could achieve a vastly superior neutral stance

via the stupidly simple expedient of canting the intakes forward at the GERWALK joint just a single notch.

it truly allows things to fall right into place nicely for a much more attractive stance, IMHO;

- ALAS, mine is no longer capable of transforming from FIGHTER. R.I.P. you fugly old bird... ((YMMV))

Canting the intakes forward? Mind explaining in more detail? I almost never display my YF-19 in GERWALK mode (the fighter mode is just too damn sexy) so I have little experience in that particular mode (GERWALK).

Whats up with the cut out on the inside of the leg? I never noticed that before. What is it making space for? Why does it bother me so much?

I don't know why they removed the collapsing panel (though I assume it's cost-saving), but that is nothing new. The indentation has been there in all of the M7 VF-19 types Yamato released. The engineering on this toy is basically the same as those, apart from the cosmetic changes to make it look like a 19 (with the exception of high-speed mode).

To be honest the gap doesn't bother me -- it did a little bit in the prototype photos before the VF-19kai came out, but now I don't mind it at all.

The gap/indentation was is there for the VF-19 variations because of the forearms when its in fighter/gerwalk mode. So it's not like they removed the collapsing panels on the YF-19... Yamato just never implemented them on (or carried them over from the YF-19 onto) the VF-19.

I think it looks better on the Yamato version. But honestly, its not going to stop me from buying it. lol Thanks for the clarification, everyone.

Looking good. It would've been nice to have the moving panel to accommodate the arms, but the legs on this version aren't as wide from shin to calf as the Yammie, and there wouldn't be room enough for the gear, or just barely, not to mention the internal stores bay. Overall, this version improves on the Yammie in so many other areas that a small indent is negligible. Nice color correction...she's really purty. Wish they'd posted a lower angle photo of the 19 on a stand with the gear up. Looking forward to a slimmer, trimmer fighter.

I'm really really hoping the macross kites are tampo printed on the neck and on the left wing when this comes out, instead of leaving it blank and having us apply it as a decal.

Why wouldn't they? Except for the designer who didn't care for the kites on the 17 every other Valk has had them where they should be.

In the off chance they think "leave it blank in case people want 'SMS' instead"

I guess that would be a bummer for some of you guys, and at one time I would have lamented that scenario myself. At this point in time I'm comfortable with, and sometimes prefer, being able to decal my own Valks so it wouldn't personally bother me at this point. I still don't think they will do that, however.

It would better not, for our's and Arcadia's sakes: the price tag of 250USD was pretty impressive for the DX VF-27, although it came together with the super parts. I can't imagine myself putting 400USD in a single valk + shippong costs, or at least not without a second thought!
