Goes to show that Arcadia making a VF-0B variant would be very easy. Just produce more VF-0D forward sections (Milk that mold Arcadia!!), add it to a VF-0A/S body and new paint job.... See, that was easy! B))

Not really. 2 screws (or one if you're lazy like me) and it comes out in half. Pop and swap the heads then done. It's going into battroid for the B that is the tricky part.

From the last page:

I almost picked up an extra 0D and 0A specifically for this. The 0B is my absolute FAVORITE!

Yep, VF-0C is a single seat Delta wing, VF-0B is a two seater 0A/S variant. B))

Also, going with Master files the VF-0B has the D head and the VF-0C has the A head.

Ah, that's good then, makes it an easy switch, so you don't have to mess with the folding plates that fit around the head.

Yeah. Based on Arcadia's site Y37584 is the MSRP plus tax. MSRP is just Y34800.

Initial PO price for this were:

HLJ: 31,320 JPY

NY: 28,920 JPY

Ami: 29,700 JPY

So nowadays, that Y33060 is already a good price. The only risk is that since this release didn't have reissue, there's still a chance that it will come with broken hip joints. But still, it's fixable.

one of my vf-0s gerwalk joint is extremely (frightening) stiff and wont move. any recommendations to open it up so I can transform him properly? I managed to get him in batroid but I dont see hope for gerwalk. Also the hip extension gimmick is incredibly tight on mine restricting movement at his hips. @jenius

Since that's probably true, II just can't remember that they were that expensive at release... no wonder why Arcadia can't sell many of these.

No matter what are the reasons they have for these prices, they can't seam to be reasonable.

After a frustrating 2-3 hrs I figured out the culprit the gerwalk joint was glued shut literally on my vf-0s. It took some slow tender loving to pry it open without damaging it. Glad that is over

Any other place that have stock for this? or VF-OS.

Not in the most retail shops. But you can check the For Sale thread. Warrhead is selling one.

Or you can post one in the Wanted Section just in case there's some members who's willing to let go one of their extras.

Has anyone experienced the wrist on the Arcadia VF-0S forming cracks over time? Is this a problem this toy is known for? I have not messed with the hands (only displayed toy) since I bought it years ago and just saw cracks forming on both wrists.

Not this again.

I am so close to the point of swearing off Arcadia if this has happened to mine. Now imagine what the new SV-51 is going to end up like.

Bummer.

5 OD's?! :shok:

Love the display, @Kicker773. :good::wub:

By the way, are you going to replace all of your Yammie SV-51's with Arcadia ones?

Maybe just one Ivanov. I don’t think they'll be making any other variants anytime soon considering it’s taking them this long to release one.

Lots of armor talk lately and I finally had a chance to armor up a VF-0S

Getting ready to finally open up my PF version and anticipating the PF 0D and hopefully 0A.

I'm wondering if I should pull the trigger on this purchase here. I'm worried about the whole leg falling off thing I keep hearing about. 

Also, is a perfect finish version gonna be released?

I actually pulled the trigger and ordered it from HLJ. Got it yesterday and transformed right away. 

immediately, the right leg was on the ground. Completely detached.

Been thinking of ordering one myself, but it sounds like these should be left in fighter mode forever

The only reason I'm hoping for a PF is so I can have one with the fixed hip... well, other than the hip I fixed and re-fixed several times. I think it's pretty good now but I will forever having some surgery scars on the back of the leg.
