What's the deal with this? Is it a sale?

It is a sale. I'm assuming they want to clear their inventory. But only to be ship within Japan. So if anyone want to participate, better contact your favorite proxy service so they can order some for you the moment it became online on Feb 5, 7pm, JST.

Any chance gaijin like us can have access to those goodies? :-)

Additional FYI, you guys don't need to stay up late since you need to place the orders via proxy. So email them about it ahead of time. ;)

Like most of us mentioned here, you have to use proxy services to avail it.

Unless you order directly, and have it shipped to a Tenso forwarding address.

Ok. Looks like Arcadia will unveil another (not-so) Premium Finish release on the WonFest 2019 event besides the other display items such as the upcoming SV-51 Ivanov, VE-1 Elintseeker Premium Finish, and the Variable Stand.

Seeing that the Ivanov doesn't have the PF term on the listing, I'm assuming they will release a regular version first(?).

That's going to make us double dip for both copies of Ivanoff's 51 (regular and PE) for those that want it which we know well. Get the regular and then the PE which makes us sell off the regular version afterwards? :rolleyes:

Can't wait to see the pics of the semi-finished 51 and the PE VE-1 during WonderFest. I'm more interested in the PE VE-1 than the 51 honestly speaking.

Any guesses on the new premium finish announcement?

  • VF-1J GBP?
  • VF-0D?
  • VF-0A? 
  • VF-1D?

Prices? For the sale or for the ones they're going to display on the upcoming WonderFest? If the latter, at this point no one knows what's the prices is going to be.

TBH, I'm just interested on a regular release since I'm not planning on rebuying what I have in the hopes that there will be a PF version down the line.

I would welcome multiple premium finish announcements, if Arcadia were to be so bold later this week.

If the VT-1 is announced, I'll have to shout out a "woot!" or two. Same if Max's 1A or 1S are announced, or the VF-0D...All are long shots, I think...

Given Arcadia"s pattern of releasing PF versions of prior Arcadia non-PF releases... maybe a PF VF-4?

If it's a Premium Finish of a VF-4 in Flashback 2012 version, I'll probably bite. :rolleyes:

But, I already have three VF-4G for me to get another one.

I kinda hope they come out of left-field with another Yamato re-release. Like a PF VF-11B/C for instance.

It is not like I particularly want them to do a PF version of the VF-4G, but when you consider that they did PF versions of VF-1S Roy, VF-1S Hikaru, VF-1J Miria, VF-1J Max, VF-0, and SDF-1.... all of which had prior Arcadia non-PF releases... I think the PF VF-4G is kind of likely.

The PF VE-1 technically does not break this pattern, given that the really was never a non-PF VE-1, since the original Yamato release was effectively a PF, with all the tampo printing it got.

As far as Arcadia's release pattern has been, I would first expect them to release a regular VF-11 before seeing a PF version comes out.

I'm guessing PF VF-0D and a display of previous PF releases. 

As for the SV-51, I wouldn't pay the extra markup for a PF SV-51 for such a small amount of tampo compared to the VF-1 and VF-0 sets. I don't think there were too much to add for a PF since the sticker sheet was small and most of it (like Ivanov's logo and the  Anti UN logo) were already tampo'd.

Here's my list of what I think is most likely PF announcement from most to least:

1) Hikaru 1J (GBP or super)

2) Shin 0A

3) Shin 0D

4) VT-1

As someone who joined late the Valk party, I'm quite happy with any (all?) of them :-)

agree with your number 1 pick, it's VF-1J GBP for me. with that Hong Kong retailer saying last year it was coming, plus the teased release of 1/48 GBP armour now's the time to do it.

As much as I'd love to see a PF VF-0D or PF VF-4 FB, I would not be able to afford the premium on top of the already expensive Arcadia base price for these toys.

I'll save my money for the inevitable DX VF-1 releases instead.

Actually, for me, the only thing that I'm looking forward to from Arcadia's WonderFest photos is just the SV-51 Ivanov. I'm actually burned out now from VF-1's. The only VF-1's that I'm looking forward to is DX Hikaru VF-1A/S. :rolleyes:

So who purchased from Arcadia's campaign when it opened earlier?

Based on the listings, these are the only ones you can add to your cart:
- VF-1J Max
- VF-1J Max Premium Finish
- VF-1J Millia
- VF-1J Millia Premium Finish
- VF-0 Reactive Armor
- VF-0 Reactive Armor Kit
- VF-0S Roy Premium Finish

Again, do note that this is Ship to Japan only. So you need to use proxy services to get one.

...I already have all of those, except the VF-0A

Now if they'd had a PF VF-1S...

If Arcadia pops up with a PF VF-1J Hikaru, I might bite, but I'd prefer the supers to the GBP, just because I want a PF set of generic TV super packs.

I wonder if Arcadia would consider releasing PF super/strike packs?  Strike probably not due to the variety of skull markings, but they could easily mass produce the standard TV packs with the kite printed on them.  I'd probably buy three or four sets of those.

So disappointed with the lack of tampo on the 35th anniversary valkyrie.  Same goes for the 30th.

And that's where the included stickers comes in. You know Arcadia. :rolleyes:

Imagine how much if these Anniversary Scheme releases gets a Premium Finish treatment? ;)

I'm more likely to get it without the tampo, because it looks better to me without all that added junk. The scheme is busy enough already with just the striping.
