Arcadia VF-1J Full Armor - January 2015

Recommended Posts

Awesome, a May release works so much better than earlier in the year.

Guys, I thought you already knew that this will be released on May and not January as per first page's photo. Were you guys panicking because all the while you thought this will be released on January? Hahaha! j/k :lol:

I held off from getting the 1/60th armored parts since I have the 1/48th scale version of it. I hope that the incentive for getting this Arcadia offering would be the additional part swappers like side armors and extended pilot seat(s) for battroid and of course an improved 1J w/ a grey visor.

I am rooting also for a grey visor but I remember Mr.K already tweeted before that it will just have the regular white visor. :unsure:

ahhh ok well that clears things up a bit! Thanks for the info dude! B))

and yes gives us a little buffer to help wallets & bank accounts recover before our next crazy mad spending sprees! I definitely will be getting one for sure!! ;)

You're welcome. ;) Hope everyone's ok now and not panicking anymore. Imagine the reaction of 'one member' here who has 4 PO's of VF-0D and have to add this one coming January. And we're not sure if he's just going to get one or two. Hahaha! :lol:

... :huh:

*Gasp!* :blink: Oh wait, that's you! Hahaha! Just having fun bro. :lol:

Yeah, I certainly thought the release was earlier in the year. Panic no, but wasn't looking forward to spending more money post Holiday season when it's usually time to pay off bills or replenish the disposable cash reserve.

Wait. I envy you b. You don't panic when it's that time again post holidays to pay bills and replenish the reserves. That's what I meant when I said panic on my post. Coz I need to panic. Hahaha! Definitely all of us will spend coming holidays only to realize that we will also need to pay for those upcoming preorders of not-so-expensive VF-0D next year. Hehehe. :lol: Again, imagine that 'one member' who has 4 VF-0D PO's. (Sorry, spanner.) ;) Guess our post holiday spending spree will end mid-year 2015. :lol:

Yeah, so this is going to sound like double-talk. But I do panic, I'm panicking through the roof right now trying to figure out how to pay for all the stuff that's coming out in November that I've pre-ordered. However, with regards to the 1J/GBP and 0D, I'm good. B))

Yeah. And that results in a course correction for me: I'll be passing on this. I don't need two of the same VF-1J Valkyries. I already have a nice Hikaru 1J that I picked up from another forum member. Arcadia is confusing me with their VF-1 releases. I hope the next use of the mold hits it out of the park.

Does anyone know if the hands can be replaced by other Valk hands we might already have? I'm thinking of grabbing one of these and painting it up for a DYRL version, but the clown hands will have to go if I'm going to do it.

Yes it can - just use the valk's original plug holes and don't use the armour fists/wrist plates - also this; https://www.shapeways.com/model/782086/vf-1-valkyrie-hands-a-set.html

There are some example of these fists (can use any of the originals too) used on the armour.

Kinda disappointed that the visor is white instead of grey. Looks like the older grey goggle 1J will become even more expensive.

I need more armors but I already have two VF-1J's (grey goggle and white goggle).

Hope they release just the armor pack in the near future!

man am i glad I got Yamato's original version. Way cheaper and will still be easily distinguished from Arcadia's.

Me too...;-) no details on what may be different / extras still?

Since I missed Yamato's version this will be an easy sell to me LOL....

so far no extra's announced. It is confirmed though that this will not have the missile fire effect.

LOL, I am kinda figuring they will charge a bit more than the 1S releases from earlier this year..... I figure that's fair since they are using the SAME old moulds after all....... time will tell......

Grey goggles ... I'll do that fix. Should be easy as heck. Just a little paint.. Hard part would be getting it off.

Plus I have a 30th TV 1J for white.

Never having owned a set of GBP I'm looking forward to this.

its the only release I really need.

Does this mean it comes with a stand? ( and yeah DYRL hands?)

I'm sure it will.

I just hope they can pack the parts in a fairly small box with the valk.

Cool!Hope that's the case.Also VERY curious about the option parts, particularly the side covers! (Grey and white/only grey/only white?)

highly likely they won't come with either stand or dyrl hands.

Looks great. As much as i do like the white goggles of my TV Hikaru it shouldn't be too difficult to paint it gray yeah? I probably wouldnt bother doing that myself anyways..

It would be cool though if it did come with the DYRL hands, we already got the TV hands the first time around.
