No one wants any of these, as evidenced by bandai’s dud of a VF-31A release. 

They need to go BRIGHTER; toss a neon racing stripe or two on there and you’ll have a hit for sure :rolleyes:

And an obnoxious tramp stamp on it.  I nominate a butt with a tattoo of a butt on it.  Everyone would want one.

Also, at Arcadia, a prototype model was displayed along with the ongoing announcement of commercialization of 1/60 perfect deformation VF - 1 J Macross 35th anniversary coating machine.

I wonder how much this VF-1J will cost at release?  Being new to collecting, I have been paying a premium in picking up valkyries well after they go out of print. For once, I'd like to pick up a valkyrie at or below MSRP. *sigh*

This valkyrie looks like a perfect candidate.... to either try to remove its hideous paint job, or paint over in white. Then re-decorate with decals or something. Maybe a cheap alternative to picking up a Yamato unpainted VF-1?

WTF Arcadia!?

I want whatever they're smoking

It may as well be stacks of cash, for all the amazing sales figures this thing will be bringing in for them. :p

An anniversary edition I’d buy: Alaska Base.

I would love to see them release a 1/60 scale ARMD. I can already imagine someone's 4 car garage filled with one of these... and I'd be envious.

oh man that  canopy colors look so bad, the whole color design in battroid mode looks bad in my opinion, for me at least not sure others but only fighter mode is kinda bearable :D

Even an Angelbirds with 35th Incorporated into it would make so much more sense.

I suppose I could get this in the bargain bin and just paint over it. Oh but why bother. That's just too much work.

Tenjin should've left the heatshield blue. And not create that 'Renault' looking logo.

I rather have a transforming Org-Roid than that. ^_^

they should have done a custom head. especially since the last anniversary one was a 1j

The 35th reminds me on the kind of paint scheme Toynami would come up with for one of their "original variant Veritechs". Like the VF-1R from the animation error with the 5 head lasers. 

 

Edit. I take it back. It's too complex for them.

Toynami has done much better on original schemes. They're stealth schemes have been fine, especially the Navy blue one. The 1R was fine too, from head to color, I thought it worked well.

It wasn't to say that those were bad per se but that I expect more from Mr. Hidetaka. Although based on the 30th ann scheme perhaps my expectations were unfounded.

If Arcadia was able to make one, I’d personally buy a 1/60 VF-1S Messer without any purple on the chest instead of this 35th Anniversary Valkyrie.

I just have to wonder from where Tenjin is getting inspiration for these anniversary schemes. The real life aerobatic team colors and JASDF anniversary liveries are far more appealing.

Hopefully at Summer Wonderfest. I’ve occasionally tweeted “Sv-51?” at Mr. K with no response.

Ya know?

Arcadia should release Shin's F-14 (along with his squad) and their rival MiG-29. 

In 1/60 scale, of course.

Non-transformable, but die-cast,panel-lined and stuff. Especially some damaged/blown/holed-wings parts and pilot figures.

Just to keep us all even moar wanting their new SV-51's...

 

:bump:

I'm only buying the '29 if it's the "last battle" version with canards... I have plenty of mig-29's otherwise...

.... but Shin's tomcat in 1/60... they'd get me with that one for sure!
