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

Recommended Posts

Damn, what will be the price tag for the $uper/$trike variants then? Those are going to be expensive as hell.

Based on the 30th rainbow valk and price point, the mold looks the same.

looks like they're taking a page from bandai and might sell the valks with a stand. My guess is they will sell the super and strike packs separately as well like bandai, with no future combo packs.

that's some money, i think i'm going to hunt for people unloading their yamato versions, unless some new features show up

Like I said in another thread, the 30th was suppose to be 160 but you could pre-order it for 130 all over.

Also, they haven't officially announced any extras.

I like that stand though. Looks nice.

The plus side with those high Arcadia prices is I don't feel so bad now about coming into this hobby so late and having to spend $150-$180 for my DYRL Yamatos

Damn, the average for me was sub $100 with a high Yen rate when I started my VF-1 collection. I think we were getting exchange rates in the low 70's per dollar.

Sweet, I was just about to buy a VF-1A Hayao for my first VF-1. I guess I'll wait for this VF-1$!!!

Are we sure it's real? Mr. K not fooling around with us

Because he knows we're suckers.

Be cool if it came with the "east" stand.

Part of me wants to buy it because I want to support Macross.

The other part of me says, I already have roy in 1/48, 1/100 (hi-metal) and 1/60 (V2)

I don't mind another movie version, esp one with all the improvements... new style crotch and the nice hinge pins. (the only one that had that was the option parts release) hopefully the yen won't strengthen vs the dollar to the point where it was last year... by the time this comes out.

Got one :D

$140 bucks is a good deal with a stand IMO.

Plus is brand spanking new.

Water decals is great news! It looks like Arcadia has listened to those who always asked for them.

preordered. I'm glad that Arcadia is back reissuing the VF1's. It gives some hope that they'll do the max and miria valks eventually. The stand is a nice add in.

I wonder what the box will look like. I hope it's even more compact like Bandai's. The smaller the better.

part of me wants to buy this..
But damn...that price...

Let's put things in perspective here.. the VF-1Sv2 was going for 9800yen MSRP back in the day.. it's what got me started on this damn Valk collecting hobby in the first place.

But here we are, Arcadia pricing themselves to Bandai DX Chogokin Valk range...

I'll sleep on this for the time being.. if I should get a 2nd VF-1S Roy.. I do have a spare strike pack lying around.....which they will no doubt reissue some point down the road.

but it comes with a stand and the yen ratio back when that one was released made it about 135 usd.

So, aside from a decal sheet and a stand, it's virtually the same thing as the Yamato release?

I think that's part of the reason yamato went out of business.

I think the "chogokin" or diecast content is pretty close. and getting a cheap stand is worth 10-20 bucks imo.

Considering the yamato stands were going for 100 bucks at one point.

I think with the size of macross collecting warrents the hike. it's still a fairly small niche in the grand scheme of things.

Also, I just check - the 30th anniversary is still up for sale. Not a good sign. haha

I guess Arcadia estimated that its stocks will eventually go on sale as shelf warmers and they are compensating it in the price?

I hope the box doesn't become thicker with the stand.

watersile decals... THANK YOU ARCADIA!! OH YEAH!

Very few still in stock, but try finding one with the option parts.

That seems to be the sale ensurer.

*Accidentally posted this in the other thread by mistake, had 2 windows open*

I guess the rumor was true. I'm excited that the release was made, but I don't really think I need another DYRL Roy. I do like that water slide decals, option parts and a stand are included though. I wonder if they will reissue the whole squad again. I am going to weigh this one for a bit before I pull the trigger. I don't have a lot of stuff on order for Nov, but I do have a ton of stuff slated for Oct.

Yes, Movie=DYRL? version.

HLJ says it's an Aug release? I thought I saw Nov somewhere else.

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.

Even though it's blurry it's obviously on the same background that they use for the photoshoot.

■ Package size: 25 × 280 × 150mm (provisional) Too small to be possible?
