 So I was way off... I remember the scene and wrong description. It's been over half a year since I watched M7. 

I'm watching it for the first time right now (on weekends with a friend), just watched that ep on Sunday.

Nobody buy this thing. We all wait it out until it goes on clearance for under $100 and then those who want it, start buying.

The battroid isn't bad, but the fighter looks terrible to me.

Well I like fighter but can't stand battroid:D

why do they have to make the anniversary schemes so.....ugly.  i bought the rainbow tuxedo 30th one to "support arcadia" because they were brand new and i didn't want them to fold lik eyaamto...I then sold it a few years later.  at least the 25th anny yamator 1/48th wasn't ugly (minus the lettering). 

i wish arcadia would have just done a 1/48 low visibility vf-1a scheme (heck make it a J or an S or a D if you want to make it different) in 1/60.  a stealth or woodland camo would have been gobbled up...those 1/48 schemes were great.  i own the stealth just because of the scheme!  or do something new like a digital camo  low viz.  also although i'm not clamoring for it, an alaska base or minmay guard would have sold like hotcakes and i'd have bought it too.  any of those would have been a nicer 35th anniversary tribute. 

should we as fans just give up on arcadia giving us interesting non hero valk vf-1 releases (there hasnt' been a non exploding shoulders reelease of VT-1) and just move on?  i suppose i could build one of those yamato kits i have and give it someone to paint but it'd always be non factory paint so  one would have to be more careful or just do one thats a mostly white scheme anyway (less paint).  i'd much rather arcadia do a new scheme release though!

I love the battroid mode, but I would not get it as full price.  I would love to see other paint scheme (artic, woodland, low vis, etc) like the 1/48 before this.

To be honest, I like this 35th scheme way better than the 30th one. But, I'm not saying I'll support and buy one. I'll rather display an ITASHA VF-1 than these VF-1 Anniversary schemes. I'm not sure why Arcadia can't create one. Is this another case of characters copyright permission thing? :rolleyes:

Look at this VF-1 DLC content from Macross 30 game. Who doesn't want to have this in their VF-1 collection? :wub:

Just so you know, Ignacio. The Hasegawa kit version is still widely available. ^_^

That would be unique if there were itasha valks for a change...it walks a fine line tho as everyone’s taste in art decor will be different ...

First of all that is some nice CGI from that game, but I'm not such a huge fan of that itasha thing.  its a little too in your face.  the vf-171 maruyama custom is about as far as it should go i think, cool art but doesn't distract too much from the actual valk.  even smaller like the monster from frontier with the sheryl would be my preference.  that being said, that itasha scheme from that game...i'd at least consider buying it because its so different and well done.  the 35th anniversary scheme...i'm not sure how they came up with it.  theres too much lettering and at least one too many colors IMO.

All I'm pointing out is that the Itasha designs that's been done for VF-1 in the game, Bandai kits for VF-25, YF-29, and the VF-31 is done with a good taste than this Anniversary scheme. And to top it off, as much as how I respect Tenjin on his artwork, I'm on the fence when it comes to his Anniversary Valk designs.

Not feeling that at all- too busy. I wish they'd rerelease the VE-1; it's really the only version of the VF-1 I'd spend money on at this point. Maybe the VT-1, too.

Other than the SV-51 they've got in the works, I'd be happy to see them take a crack at the YF-21, with lessons learned from the Yamato.

Like everyone else, I'd like to see them get a license to do a VF-5000, or a VF-9, or VF-14, or a Variable Glaug. It'd be nice to have some variety outside of Plus, 7, and the VF-1 ad nauseum.

Who thinks that Arcadia have lost the Plus license at 1/60 scale? Their teased premium finish 19 is now no where to be seen. Do they even have the 7 license at 1/60 scale any longer?

I feel like Arcadia only has SDFM/DYRL and Zero license under their belt at this point.

Bandai will compete and license Zero at 1:48 scale, and we'll see a massive DX VF-0 that puts the Arcadia VF-0 to shame. Oh man that would be 1 big plane.

I don't remember any premium YF-19 teaser, but I'd be sorely tempted.  I admit though, after seeing all the tampo Bandai splattered their version with, I like having the clean Arcadia as an alternative.  It probably could use the intake warnings, but it otherwise looks very accurate to the animation.

It was a weathered YF-19 shown at a show, not a full tampoed one.

I'd totally get a weathered Arcadia YF-19.

I really like the 30th and will be getting the 35th.  Trying to find the 25th valks at decent prices.

I would go for the VE-1 if it gets remade as I don't have any RVFs in 1/60 scale. As for the YF-21, that's going to be an interesting battle as Bandai just released the full package YF-21.

Edit: There is a 1/60 VE-1 listed on Jungle for 60K yen sealed.. For that price I night as well get Arcadia's take on it (and pass on the hidden damages if there is any and not noted).

Lol! That was worth a 100 up votes.

I think they have and they may have lost the Macross 7 license a few years ago. Shame if so since I could sure use a Super Ostrich reissue sans knurled pin shoulders and a VF-19P. They only did 1 release of the Fire Valkyrie with the Sound Booster and gold trim and that was it. Bandai also showed a DX Fire Valkyrie prototype at Tamashii Nations a few years back...I don't think they would've shown that if they wouldn't be able to make it.

Hard to say where Arcadia will go from here. As of December last year, they were still trying to get a greenlight from Big West to make a TV SDF-1. We've yet to see a FB2012 Skull Team VF-4 from them, presumably due to still waiting on Big West for approval.

Their Battle 7 kit was released about six months ago, so they could well still have the Macross 7 license in some form at least.

Bandai seems to be closing-in in their promised VF-19 HMR... so :unknw:

Bandai hasn't done any teasing of a VF-19 HMR. They teased a DX VF-19 but it was a 3D print and paint, not something that looked like they were seriously working on.
