noel, you need to get one. 

Hahaha! Thanks David. But I rather focus my budget on Ivanov's and some Sentinel Mospeada stuff. ^_^

Can’t decide to get this or the SV51 :huh: unfortunately can’t afford both :(

Do you have the Yamato Ivanov?

If so, and if the leg issues are fixed in this one , i’d  for sure go for the OD. Purely based on @Loliconwonderfest pics..

I have neither. Just the 0A and 0S... right now I’m leaning towards 0D(especially if the paint matches the pic). Maybe if/when there’s a PF SV51 way down the line I’ll have money saved up for that.

As I remember it, we were all shown those promo shots and got all excited and plunked down our $$$ for the original 0D and then we got the box and the uproar was horrendous aorund here about the color. I thought it was Kawamori himself who told Arcadia that the darker blue was correct "as it would have been on a brand new aircraft". So if they do the lighter weathered scheme right this time, it would be cool to have both....but damn..not at $400.00. And you really have to wonder what color you are REALLY gonna get upon opening this one! :unknw:

Exactly.  I do not trust Arcadia at all, when it comes to "actual final release color" of a VF-0D.  I will wait, until someone has it in-hand, to see what shade of blue it is.  (though even if the blue is right, I suspect the belly will still be pure white, and not "DYRL grey" like it should be---that was also changed from the first-release sample, not just the blue upper surfaces, but the lower surface's main color too) 

(yes, I am still bitter about their 0D's coloring---I love that valk, AND it's scheme---and the sample pics were so perfect, with slate-blue and ghost-grey, then they gave us royal blue and snow-white...)

Perhaps the 1E PF then?

Tenjin said the color was wrong so they messed with it and made it worse.

Factories often don't seem to understand how to do "subtle" changes of color.   You get stuff like "sample to final" 0D color....

Guess it's ok that a PF release apparently now means it will be closer to the correct colors...but I would have preferred this Arcadia pair....hope we get them someday

And where's that long promised cannon fodder VF-0A? :search:

VF-0C  and VF-0D are basically just part swapping. What take it so hard for Arcadia to release them? Are they trying to force people to buy both (0A and 0D)?

They'd need some agreement with Hasegawa to make the VF-0B and VF-0C in those schemes. They could do a CF version I guess.

I was just goofing with my 0D.  I’ll gladly get another one in a different Livery.  I do hope Arcadia tightens up the thigh swivel though.  This damn thing will face plant if you splay the legs in Gerwalk even a little too much.

No, they only said they hope to sell it this year.

I would be more than okay with a wait until 2020.  This year is PACKED.

Bumping, as the just-announced premium finish 0D probably deserves to be in this thread, more than the 0A/0S thread.   Though---perhaps we should merge all the Arcadia VF-0 threads?

It actually looks better now (more slate-grey-blue than powder blue) than it did at Wonderfest in February.  Actually repainted/new sample, or just way different lighting?

Yup that would qualify as premium for me, and not just tampo.

IF its not a bait and switch. 

Does anyone think if HLJ or ami will accept returns/cancellations if the final appearance did not match as displayed?

I'm sure the "final product may differ from prototype" small print is somewhere. These days they're pretty good about getting an artist proof in hand before doing the press shots. The press shots should be a good indication... these prototype shots are probably still "this is what we're going for!"

Just wait till after release day and see how it turns out. It Macross Zero and it'll be expensive, so I expect it to be readily available after release day.

I would be blown away if indeed the promo's show it that way....and the more i think abt it, its delusional for me, to expect it coming out looking as detailed as the display unit.
Very likely a used prototype which arcadia played around with, panel lining and all...

Yeah that's one thing to enjoy, no pre-order madness!

Order it at HLJ so you have 10 days to decide whether you're going to have it ship or not. Just an option and easy return.

Chill sir. No need to rush. Arcadia PO is not as difficult as Bandai. ;)

That seems to be a good option in this case. Just hope someone reviews the 0D in jp right after release as its not bandai which has reviews right after release...

anyway no preorder madness so there should be time to see what the final release looks like...

I have a problem. And the only prescription is more Macross. I love adding items to my preorder excel document :p

Don’t know why the color seems so attractive on this pic, probably the camera used ...but the more I see it the more I wish it would come out as displayed...

Urgh ...addiction symptoms...reminder to self: do not search for pics of vf-0D until release day...
