 I wish the Speaker Pod Gamma was true but should come with the VF-17T which is the one that transports

Part of me wants Arcadia to produce a 1:3000 scale Flash Back Megaroad 01. But I'm not sure if I would buy it as it would be around 24 inches long and would probably be way more than I would want to pay.

Have to agree it will. They might put this in their resin 3D print line rather than a full production so yeah, it will cost more.

Still no word if Arcadia is going to re-release the VT-1 Super Ostrich?

Nothing announced.

Admittedly, now that Arcadia has an active VE-1 Elintseeker mold, it will make their eventual production of a VT-1 easier.

Start with the VE-1. Replace the head, boosters packs, and leg armors,... and get rid of the arm attachments and radar dome entirely, Then repaint.  Hello VT-1.

I wonder if Arcadia would do a regular or PF version.... In the case of the VE-1, when Yamato originally released it, it was pretty much effectively a PF version already. But the same cannot be said for the original VT-1.  So it will be interesting to see if this is just a re-release or a PF upgrade when announced.

I hope they stick to PF. I don’t like the uncertainty of picking up a plain version and hoping for a PF down the line.

That's how Arcadia gets us all @spacemanoeuvres:p 

Issue the Plain Jane version first then get us to upgrade to the PE version a year or so later. We have discussed this topic too many times to count.

But in all actuality, this is the first time Arcadia offered a PF release prior of a regular version. Though there's no word if ever there will be a regular version after for VE-1. ;)

I'm actually wondering why Arcadia decided to issue their version of the VE-1 in PF first. Marketing enticement perhaps?

The Elintseeker was shown for 2 seconds (?) in DYRL and slightly different from any of the VF-1 valks due to the sensors that where plastered all over it and the oddball looking head.

As I understand it, the Yamato V2 VE-1 had a lot more tampo than the other V2 VF-1 figures.

And to be honest, the toy incarnation of the Elintseeker is still different on how it was shown in DYRL. ;)

I thought it was the VF-1J Mass Production?

It’s funny about the VE. According to the guys from podcast whom attended wonderfest .. There wasn’t much about it that looked PF. Except maybe the markings were tampo’d on instead of apply your own stickers. They didn’t seem too impressed with it. Now the VF-0D was another story. I heard the word gorgeous used ..

it's not that special,

 

the yamato VE-1 aside from the mass 1J already has the most tampo printing on it. so the premium is not worth it for previous owners.

 

esp if you have the rainbow tint version.

The big plus is the eye insignia on the fast packs.

It's only in DYRL for a second and it's drawn pretty funky in comparison to the final line art the toys are based on.

Oh, the new launch arm stand have quite a lot of improvement over the old one.

- storage space.

- two extra stabilizing legs.

- round plug adapter for VF-0, SV51.

- no exposed screw holes on the big arm.

- 4800 yen is only a bit more than the original price (around 4000 yen at 2004), cheaper than the knock off

I'm sure that there will be other colours available down the road David.

Made a pre-order for one already and will be using this and the Yammie version in my display. I might even do a comparison as well.

It should be fairly obvious though.  Do they honestly expect to sell a 1/60th valk with no stand and a paltry fraction of the markings Bandai applied to their DX VF-1, for a higher price?  They had to amp up the detail to stay competitive.

Not only that, but the VE-1 is about 20% cheaper than the other recent PF VF-1s Arcadia has released.  The M&M VF-1Js were each over 31,000 yen, while the VE-1 is under 26,000.

I'm personally hopeful that they're just done with the dual release schtick, and move to giving everything the PF treatment from the get-go.  Bandai's been doing it that way from the start (minus the landing gear, of course <_<), so it just makes sense for them to raise their standards.

Looks like Amazon is best price once more.

I really do hope they start allowing more things for overseas purchase.

Who's buying this thing? I'm on the fence as I don't know if it's worth mixing it up with my Yeti stands.

I'm getting one. I'll probably do a full video review.

Not I. Much to blocky for me. For the price, I'd stick with YetiStands.

I’d get one for the sake of options and having an upgrade from the originals.
