Good news for those who missed out on the Yamato's. Still...I'll be holding on to my mine...after all..this IS Arcadia we're talking about...blues, reds and whites..LOL! we'll see if they get it right! 

I half expect Milia's VF-1J to come out sort of orange-ish and Max's to be a purple hued blue while the visor frames are black because they maybe might have looked that way in one frame of animation error during an explosion while squinting your eyes really hard.

I'll be honest, I wouldn't be entirely opposed to them being slightly different colors, just for variety.  If they go with the colors Yamato used on the VF-22s, that might be about my limit though. :lol:

And actually, I wouldn't entirely mind a set of packs in the colors Bandai is spitting out as "canon" now.  Some light gray missile packs for the boosters might look really nice on a VE-1.

Hope this is a thing.

I was thinking on jumping out of the boat of collecting Macross stuff since I miss this 2. There is no way I can get the Yamato releases at the ridiculous price of the aftermarket.

Tell u what....if I owned a pair of Yamato M&M, I'd be selling while the demand is hot. I watched several people hold out on selling the VF-4 when the prices were stupid high. Then arcadia re-booted the lighting and prices flopped on the yamato. I've collected a lot of things.....funny how this hobby ....the vintage toys go down in price once a re-issue comes out. In the majority of the collecting world, most original vintage 1st issues are so much more valuable....whether it's comics, skateboards, etc. Here it's the opposite. Fascinating

I've made that observation long ago, therefore I don't think collecting toys as a long term investment is a good idea. There aren't very many who will opt to pay a higher price for an older toy (which is almost purely born out of nostalgia) VS a newer version of it that is most likely improved in all aspects significantly.

It's probably similar to gadgets. How many people would prefer to pay a higher price fon an original Nokia 3310 VS the newer 3310 version that Nokia is releasing (assuming they want something that looks like a 3310 in the first place)?

Old vintage toys and comics are only valuable because people actually played with and enjoyed them, so that very few survived to today as MISB or whatever. :p

hehe! I do invest but in my satisfaction and enjoyment in owning the toys themselves and never to make money reselling.. yes that does suck.

I agree. Don't like talking about it too much online rather enjoy it in person

I already have them too but I hope the new Arcadia's releases could combine the boxes to show a big picture like the older ones

Whoa whoa whoa do you have your beautiful custom on a Flightpose? Be careful with those; the nubs are notorious for eating into paint and clear coats.

Nice pics spanner and Darotower.

If Arcadia's turn out pink (high chance) then I'll just leave them in Fighter mode or skip them and stick with my loose and MIB sets from Yamato.

No worries. Arcadia has you covered. They will sell you the option parts and give you a free Valkyrie too. :p

Well, they were only on screen for 9 seconds.

Ah...so that's what they did with the 1/60 Fire Bomber figurine set...makes sense, who in their right mind would have bought that VF-19 Kai Bling Edition! :acute:

I do indeed! Just checked it after reading your comment. Its been sitting on that stand for a few months now and so far so good! Though i haven't had any issues with any of my Valks sitting on FP stands..

Yeah I'll be pretty bummed if these re-issues have pinky white problems.. fingers crossed they don't but Arcadia has already a track record for this problem..

Would be pretty silly for anyone wanting to part with their super parts.. or at least I certainly wouldn't.

That's good. Would hate to see a lovely custom get marred by it. They're fine if the nubs are only touching bare plastic, but they've been known to damage paint over time. 

I stopped using them (except for taking brief photos) because of it.

Cool....if you really do not want them I'll definitely buy them.....not sure if I need an Arcadia M&M.....I'd be all over a clear plastic Arcade version set though!  Someone really needs to petition Mr. K about those via tweet or FB.....
