A PF YF-21 before Bandai does it would be a smart move.

Oooohh. A PF YF-21? That's cool but then they have to fix the cracking inner thigh problem and release the weathered YF-19 they announced years ago first. :rolleyes:

I'd take a PF YF-21 in a heartbeat, if only to put the pressure on Bandai to do their version justice.  They (mostly) nailed the YF-19, and I would love to see them improve on how well that one turned out (hopefully with about 50% less obnoxious tampo splatter :p).

Indeed, I've been waiting for Arcadia to release a YF-21, or even a VF-22S

There's enough repaints of the VF-1, so why not give the YF-19 some more love and release a repaint in the VF-19A and VF-19E color scheme?

True. I also don't mind to see another run of Bird of Prey and Double Nuts.

Do we have any official release-date for the VF-4A Hikaru, yet?

No official release dates for both regular and premium on Arcadia’s site. Still says December and February respectively. However, on AmazonJP, the regular release is labeled to get released on December 31st.

More official than Arcadia?

VF-4A Hikaru (regular release): December 2020

VF-4A Hikaru (premium finish): February 2021

I'm guessing the end of the month for both, per the usual.

I've been waiting for the Raven's scheme since yamato's 1/60. I still keep around the 1/72 because they won't release this recolor.

Both of these would be welcome provided Arcadia actually fixed their terrible ankle design.  Adding an extra click at the intake joint for better Getwalk a la Bandai’s 19 would be great as well.

I used to have the VF-19A, but sold it off when Yamato released the revised 1/60 scale YF-19, in the hope that a VF-19A would be rereleased in that color scheme.  Unfortunately, that never materialized and we got the Bird of Prey and the Double Nuts.  Both of them are nice, but I don't see why they couldn't have gone back and released a VF-19A?  My next option is to buy a used (broken) Yamato YF-19 and repaint it into a VF-19A.  Other than the color scheme, were there any other cosmetic changes made to the design?

I wonder if Bandai or Arcadia will be releasing a 1/60 scale VF-11B and/or C sometime in the future?

Nope. Just different color scheme. Only difference is the internal hardware and upgrades.

It's on most of everyone's wish list. As for who it will be, it's to be determined and if they have enough funds after this crazy insanity right now.

heh!

I was just gonna post the amjp deal stuff:

No grey-goggles and is rather bereft of the old tampo details from previous Yammie and Arcadia variants, but  no annoying WTF self-detaching t-bar shenanigan and other annoyances of the DX.

Still actually the best valkyrie toy to own and play with.

Good balance in aesthetic, engineering mechanics, and fun factors overall.

 

 

:hail:

  • 1 month later...

I don't know if this is the right thread to post this as its a given that Arcadia posts their own Macross stuff that's to be released soon, however Wonderfest has been cancelled for this year due to unfortunate world wide events that have been happening.

So no doubt that Arcadia's VF-4 (normal and PF released has been delayed), possible teased VT-1 (in premium format?), Nora's regular SV-51 etc, has been put on hold.
