Arcadia VF-1J Full Armor - January 2015

Recommended Posts

the reason it will be released later is probably so they can see who wins the, which color should be what, debate.

The 1982 in the poster means they have macross tv license? (M&M vf-1j in the future!!! ^^)

Well seen, Sir.

I'll get it with or without as I don't have this release yet

A spare head would be great though.

And effects parts.

I'd rather have effects parts than a grey visor. A little gray isn't as cool for a display as missiles!

It seems like Arcadia is trying to do definitive releases with all the goodies, so it sounds likely. Look at the Fire valk release. Sound Booster, extra figures, and the gold trim.

I agree. Including the Itano circus missile effect parts and an extra grey goggled head would go a long way towards softening the impact of what will most likely be a dramatic increase in price over the Yamato versions.

Yeah and the effects parts can't cost that much to make. It's just molds of tubular plastic.

Spare heads can't cost much either.

some kind of standing 1/60 pilot or mechanic figure would be a nice extra.

I would expect them to pass on the missile fire effect simply because of the packaging issues. They only sold the missile effect with the standalone GBP because the missiles took as much room as a Valk..

Mr. K scuttled the missile talk:

みすたーK @Mrk_arcadia 6h

あっ!ミサイル発射エフェクトをお持ちなのですね! 今回のアーマードにはミサイル発射エフェクトは付属しません。

"Oh! Missile firing effects you have of it?! Into this armored missile firing effects are not included."

Silly collectors, always driving prices up at the earliest opportunity.

I imagine it's going to be be white, simple because we know they have the DYRL licensing.

Looking at the "©1982" on the banner, it looks like they also have the SDF-M licensing.

No grey, no buy for me.

Already got a 1J and couldn't really care less about a standalone GBP armor.

Arcadia's gonna jack the pricing to scalper-highs anyway, so why still exclude the grey visor?

Asked Mr K. about a spare grey visor:

予備は入れないと思います。 少しでも価格を抑えたいのでね・・・。

I think that the spare can't enter. Because even a little wants to hold a price in check, ; ...

(Used the babylon translator and it made more sense.)

So glad I got the original Yamato IJ and then the grey visor armored IJ back in the day when they were first released and "cheap"!

Asked Mr K. about a spare grey visor:

How about just putting a grey colored sticker on the decal sheet that can be wrapped around the white visor? Sure, it's not ideal, but it's something...

Now this....

And maybe "tomorrow" a SDF1 TV ver?

Is this to much to dream of?

Here in Argentina prices get almost impossible for these wonders, so I don´t know what I´m gonna do, but I have to have one :D

How come they can't add an alternative visor for this so they can please both fans who like white and grey visors.

I am not sure about the cost since it is just a small plastic that they can easily reproduce in batches. If they said the missile effect parts is costly, I would believe them but not that small piece visor.

Is the visor a separate piece? Anyone got quick access to the assembly kits? Was the head on a separate sprue?

$$$$, everything you said i agree with.

they can, but if arcadia does that, they will open up Pandora's box. They will never do this.

Just checked myself on a 1S kit...entire head is on its own tree so there aren't any extraneous pieces. Can't see it costing more than just the extra head...but maybe the tree for the head is included with other trees so they can't just make them without having other trees that would be extra. The plastic is poured into big steel molds after all. It's probably difficult to just pour the plastic for a small section of the mold if the head parts are in the same steel mold as the wings or chest or whatever. Your cost in such a case would go up if they have to pour the plastic for the entire mold. So it can't be that simple. I'm probably off base but that's my guess.

Boo.

The upside, though, is that I needed an excuse to buy new model paints. Now I have one.

It seems I also have an excuse to get active on twitter again. :p

more than the cost of adding an extra piece, which imo will not be much as yamato just threw in option parts in a little plastic bag in each box, as well as arcadia threw in a plastic stand in the 30th rainbow in similar fashion.

a move like that will damage their economic market structure and hurt their profits.

Sure...but maybe those are on a separate steel mold.

Edit: Actually...they would be since they were added much later than the original releases.

If I'm not mistaken, I think that's what Mr-K said they're going to do.
