2 months delay is nothing compared to the elusive Kairos. :lol:

Not bad! Looks like there’s storage under the “hatch.”

Now: will they charge ¥10,000 for this?

Possible that Arcadia will go in hold-my-beer mode when they saw the original still getting scalped at ami and/or manda for almost 10k-yen used/abused...

 

:bump:

I'm going to assume it functions way better but it doesn't look like much of a change from the original release....

are these new stands?

Hey David. Yup, it's new in a sense that it's a reissue/revised arm stand with a new base that has compartment inside for storing parts.

Will they change the tampgraphic  print and box to say 36th Anniversary or just slap a sticker on it?

No matter how you Add it up. It is waaaaayyy late.

From and including: Sunday, October 3, 1982
To and including: Thursday, January 31, 2019

Result: 13,270 days

It is 13,270 days from the start date to the end date, end date included.

Or 36 years, 3 months, 29 days including the end date.

Or 435 months, 29 days including the end date.

Alternative time units

13,270 days can be converted to one of these units:

  • 1,146,528,000 seconds 
  • 19,108,800 minutes 
  • 318,480 hours

I know. I really like to have that old arm stand before. But I didn't since it's expensive to get. So hopefully this time the price is somewhere around $40+/-.

I can see them pricing these at 8998 yen.

But i won’t get these unless they are on sale, have the original ones before and don’t like them since they are suppose to grab onto the top of the fast pack instead of the bottom.

Yeah. 4K is a good price for it. With all the VF-1's that they have reissued, I think it's really about time for them to start reproducing again those arm stands.

What did they charge for their clear stand alone display stand? Hopefully they don't have to pay much for licensing right for the launch arm design but there's that and and the added complexity of the arm and all its bits. My guess is 6,500¥.

Unless the new Launch Arm can actually finally do the proper anime-accurate grab-mode with the claws, I rather they just re-release the recent Clear-Stand and/or resurrect the Mighty Block stands (possibly super-size it a bit) instead.

Yeah. The Mighty Block would be a good alternative from the Arm Stand. ;)

I picked up one of those awhile back and I like it way more than the launch arm stand. It's a basic stand that can't bank or do anything fancy, but I just use Yeti stands for that.

i think can definitely bank a valk...

Hehe i just posted a pic in the DX thread with the gears down!

Those yammie clear stands look cool. 

Bandai's stand were a throwback to NASA's/USAF(?) flight displays with the arching arm....

 

And as always yeti's stand are the standard for macross valks!

I have nightmares thinking about the cost of the SV-51.

I think that it's fair to say that all of us will be on the edge of the upcoming SV-51 price wise as we all know how Arcadia works.

First with the regular release to get sales and interest and then "WHAM" the Premium version follows out a few years later as we all look back at the VF-1 and the SDF-1.

[Actually not to give Arcadia ideas: I haven't seen a PE Version of the VF-1J with the GBP. You can toss me into the frying pan with that idea folks. :blink:]

Honestly?  I want a PF version of Hikaru's 1J with super packs.  My ideal set would be 6 PF valks: Hikaru and M&M 1Js (all with supers), a CF with supers, a 1D (with supers for fun), and a TV Roy with super packs.  We've only gotten two of those so far.

I'm still waiting (hoping) for PF VF-0D and PF VF-1J with Armor...

If only so I can buy one at retail cost, even if it's inflated.

Maybe I will be more excited about the SV-51 when more information comes around but at the moment I'm not really interested.

I'm still dreaming about my VF-4 Hikaru...
