Arcadia: 1/60 VF 1S Roy Focker Special Movie Ver

Recommended Posts

Is there any real difference between this and the focker yamato v2?

We won't know until somebody gets one and transforms it. Or unless arcadia release details.

The plastic looks a lot geryer (is that a word?) than the off-white from the yammie DYRL.

The head looks more angular too.. but it could just be me.

Maybe they refined the mold. Maybe not.

They seem to be picking up the release schedule a bit from what most people were saying. Looks like they'll be pumping out the VF-1 mold to help pay for the re-design of the other valks like the 19.

I never got a Roy of any kind so it works for me :D

The mold looks the same to me, the only difference is a way higher price and the stand. I guess we will have to wait and see what Arcadia says.

So Arcadia will now post new release info on non-Arcadia sites?....heck non-Japanese sites?!....

Looks like someone took a DYRL Focker V2 and adapted a YF-21 stand to hold it...

So is this another MG release? As in JK bro.

These things were MSRP 118$ a year ago with the option parts.

I could say a 10-15% increase in price might be warranted, but not 50%

That is a different base than the YF-21's stand base. I think this could be fake though, this would be plastered all over net right?

Wow....Arcadia took the crazy ebay prices to heart. Too expensive for me, I'm out.

Waiting until official confirmation. The Minmay Guard topic comes to mind.

Yeah that is not the same base as the YF-21. The arm part is, but the base looks wrong.

It also shows the SDFM SDF-1, should we assume they're making one of those too?

Coincidence that the new page banner prominently features a Roy -1S? I think not.

But there is no announcement on the main page here: http://www.macrossworld.com/ Why would it mean anything related to this subject? Roy is probably the most famous and recognized character of the SDF-1 series and DYRL movie.

Aha, now we are getting somewhere. I was not watching Mr K's tweets. I figured it would be on the Arcadia blog or main site.

This is a good thing to keep the VF-1S Roy manufactured, and it would be a good idea to add the Ikaru version also because they are both the most popular and desired toys amongst the Macross series when you start the collection.

Concerning the release from Arcadia, it seems that it would also come with option parts (cover under arms as seen in the 1st picture).

Looking at his twitter pics, is he building the Bandai kit?

Yes, but at what price? I am so used to the VF-1 being the inexpensive staple valk.

So what makes it a "Special movie version" ? The option parts?

If this is official I might consider a buy. Especially since I don't have a V2 VF-1 from Yamato.

I don't know if I prefer the DYRL? Skull Squadron or the SDF Vermilion Squadron. I like the gray color and the consistent markings as well as the Strike Parts better on the DYRL? Squadron but on the other hand the SDF Squad + Roy has a VF-1J whose head unit I adore and since the four planes include a VF-1S, VF-1J and two VF-1As you get more variations.... and no strike cannons. :(

So I guess DYRL? yay! ^_^

Yes, because the MW banner changed it is confirmed the SDF-1 TV release is in 2014... :)

Mr K said so through the great oracle banner of MW.

It's true that Arcadia prices are a step up more expensive than the Yamatos, but I guess this is the price we will have to pay to convince Arcadia to develop new molds on Macross lincense

I was hoping that the creepy "O face" pedo dolls would make up for that with how much those things go for LOL.

That's just a coincidence that I changed the banner last night. I've been wanting to change it since 2012 ended and that was my first chance. :D

While I'm waiting for Arcadia's official announcement before I even start to drool, I do think that the inclusion of a stand would make it that much more expensive. But at the way the market is going, is making a toy more expensive the right move? At prices like this, I think people will be fighting for it at the bargain bins or others will wait to see if there will be an unassembled version.

One can never have too many VF-1S.

Although at that price, maybe Arcadia should change the name to VF-1$ :p

Nice one Graham. :D However, if it's a sign of things to come, perhaps it might be more fitting to cover all the releases by just calling the whole series "Macro$$"

Someone ask Mr K about that picture and he said it was an old Yamato Roy of his own that he was swooshing around and at the moment he wasn't aware of a reissue or something; well, that's what I interpreted from google translate.
