DX Chogokin YF-29B Percival

Recommended Posts

WOW

It looks so much cooler in those pictures, and I'm guessing it will be a standard release so lets get ready for the PO madness

Imo, the color scheme on the Percival is tied with Ozma's as the best among the 29s.

However, I don't want to deal with the pre-order grief for a valk design that I already have and is now almost four years old, so I'm giving it a miss.

That looks pretty slick. Is that Isamu's bayonet, or is that game accurate?

@joppewo Thanks for the post.

PO madness is coming... once more into the fray.

This thing is gorgeous---if I didn't have an Ozma, I'd be all over it. (almost tempted to sell my Ozma...)

Ironically, the lighter blue wouldn't be a bad choice for a VF-0D... (better than what Arcadia went with, for sure)

Not really :)

The orange head turret visor is one of the best color choices on this thing.

haha when I saw the picture, I am expecting a comment related to the blue Arcadia was using. Bandai or at least its partner in manufacturing the toys really know their color game.

Anyone can point out if the previous promo pictures for 25 or 29 shows a SATIN finish?

This one looks nice! Love the color. :wub: Though I still wish that it has a different head unit. ^_^

@ChaoticYeti

Not sure if it's game accurate. I don't remember seeing the Perceval with the bayonet.

@chyll2

Are you referring to the first Perceval promo pics? I browsed some photos and some shots looks glossy and some kind of semi-gloss. Would be nice if it has the same finish as Chronos.

im talking about all prior 25 and 29 release, the promo pics now shows a bit of satin finish which is very similar to the YF-30 and VF-19 advance.

btw, the facebook feed stated that it is as tamashii exclusive. I am still confused, is it a general release or a made to order release liek isamu?

No bayonet on this picture but you know who can say no to an extra bayonet? :D

about the bayonet, it is all cool but it means extra parts to prevent it from pointing downwards.

While we're busy disliking everything about the saturation on the 0D in the other thread I'm curious why we're all okay with that extremely bright, pastel blue on this thing when the Perceval photo clearly shows a much darker blue all around.

@Mommar: It's called positive discrimination towards Bandai with a Stockholm syndrome sauce :D

Wait, I see a bayonet in battroid mode!

Dang, this year is going to be EXPENSIVE!

Quoted for Truth.

I'm in for at least one, regular or exclusive - although obviously hoping for one more than the other. I also like the color scheme as shown in the product photos, I'm not attached to how it appears in the game by any stretch so I'm not concerned with the real or perceived accuracy of the paint.

*looks at the pictures in the very first post* Sadly it won't look nearly as good as on these photoshopped product shots. ^_^

I'm probably going to cut my set of YF-29s down to one of each eventually. I had ordered doubles of the 30th and Isamu editions to possibly customize, but I just lost interest over time. And all the versions look boring compared to Ozma anyway. :lol:

I think if it was that color I would have kept my pre-order

Definitely loving the colors of this one! Certainly the next best color scheme after Ozma's 29.

But why would it still be classified as YF than VF if its listed as a "B" variant? I'd have assumed that the 29 would have reached the production stage and no longer be a prototype or pre-production version..?

And has there been any hint at when pre-orders might open or an estimated release date?

YA-10B exists in the real world. I assume because it was enough of a change that it still counted as experimental/prototype.

(Though even larger changes from the original, like the F-18E from the C, had no "YF" version)

Hmm, 19440 yen. Will have to think about this one.

that is the after tax price in Japan. SRP will be 18000 yen which is 1000 yen above the previous yf-29 releases (17000 yen)
