Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014


Recommended Posts

The intake lip looks thicker!

That's what I thought too... taken in isolation, I think it looks worst. However everything else looks better (except for the glossy finish).

i have to say after looking at amiami's blog picture of the intake thickness vs. the new T-2 photo, the T-2 intake lips look thinner.

It's still the same resin prototype, it's full of paint scratches (look a the biceps, the wing root connectors, the leg connectors). The canopy is not translucentent, the gunpod is still the lighter shade one.

The production sample is going to have a tighter fit.

This is shaping up to be a really nice valk; certainly light years ahead of the V1 YF19. The intake lip thickness does stand out a bit in some of the close-up photos, but then again, so much attention has been drawn to this small detail (IMO) that I can't help but actively go looking for it. I think that once you have this valk in your hands, that small detail will effectively blur amongst the rest of the design elements that are pretty much bang on.

On another note, that Isamu figure is arguably the best looking pilot figure to date and it reminds me of the 1:48 Stealth/LowVis pilot in terms of sculpt and detail. Superb.

Whether you like the new design or not, I have to say that I definitely like the business approach to design and release of this valk, in that we've essentially been included every step of the way in being provided with ongoing design photos and the sort. Pretty cool way to keep everyone in the loop (for good or ill) and build that excitement factor prior to release date. Well done Arcadia.

What do you guys think about the colour? Apparently it's not too far away from the definitive one.

The color looks good to me and it bares the matte finish that was common to Yamato valks.

For some reason, the more pics I see, the less excited I get about this release. I think it has to do with the battroid pics. The proportions don't look right to me. I know it's mostly the same as the VF-19S which I love, but I guess that was fine because M7 animated their mecha to look bulky while in Plus I seem to recall they're animated to look sleeker.

The V2 is the answer for skinny and elongated torso.

In that case you should watch the OVA and/or movie again.

With all due respect, watching the OVA again just reinforces the off proportions of the toy's battroid mode. Just take a look at the fight between Isamu and Guld during the trial run and you'll notice that the YF-19's proportions make it look taller and slimmer.

Anyway, I was just stating my opinion.

I think it's very subjective if that is the case. The YF-19 always appears short and bulky to me in battroide mode but skinny & sleek in fighter mode. This is the reason that most sculptors find it difficult to make it in 3D on transforming toys or models.

If you don't like the way it looks that's fine. Arguing it doesn't look like one scene or another won't work though. The animation throughout isn't accurate with itself from scene to scene. The closest you could come to "accurate" or "official" is the lineart from something like This Is Animation Special, etc... and in that case the Battroid mode is shown as being more stubby like this toy is (and even still, the toy is lanky compared to that lineart.)

That's a heavy loadout.

That isn't the final colour though right? It's just a test type without colour. Considering hw everything else is white as well.

Resolve... Weakening...

You know you want it! :lol:

Mr-K has mentioned the colour isn't exactly this one but fairly close.
