Whats next for Arcadia?

Recommended Posts

Nah, they just announced the June release for the launch arms and DD is scheduled for September right? It sounds like PF 0D will be December.

Hmm.. Looking at @scand recent pic of his copy of the Yammie VF-1d, is it plausible that Arcadia can produce the VF-1d if and when if they ever issue the out the Super O? :rolleyes:

Is it plausible that Arcadia will reissue the VT-1 and VF-1D? Sure it is. ;)

When will they do it? I have no idea. I'm thinking we'll be lucky if we get an official announcement before the end of the year with pre-orders for a release sometime in 2020. Of course, it could go down like the VE-1 with no one expecting anything and then (bam!) the news shows up.

Yeah, I lucked out on Buyee/Yahoo auctions with that one. I would buy a PF VF1D in a heartbeat though.

I love models and resin kits. But this is meh, to me. I’d much rather have a Meltran cruiser or destroyer.

Anyone know where to find the 35th anniversary valk at a decent price ($150-170ish)?

I believe Manda has a unit for 15k/16k yen the last time I checked. You might try and see if its still listed.

So far, this is the cheapest I have found....

$158.06 from eBay + $26 shipping

16,000 yen from Mandarake (not sure how much shipping is)

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1106802839&ref=list&soldOut=1&keyword=macross 1%2F60

There is also this...

21.565 yen from Lucky Bell (via AmazonJP) + 1,200 yen Amazon Global Shipping

I’m really surprised the anniversary Valk is holding value and sold out at most shops. I was hoping to get one on clearance for under $100.

Be patient. 

It will come. What we are seeing now is scalpers doing what they do best. I for one am  in no rush to get one or want one.

This seems like a case where an item selling at a premium has nothing to do with scalpers. It's hard to imagine people bought this thing up expecting to flip it for a profit... it had 'bomb' written all over it and is pretty surprising it sold out and now can only be found at a premium.

The formula one anniversary Valkyrie’s just didn’t do it for me. Except for the HMR Messer anniversary VF-1S..

There were plenty of anniversary VF-1s on the streets of Tokyo just recently. Can't imagine it becoming a hard to find super expensive item in such a short time.

does it come with the stand that the tuxedo valk came with?

Negative.

Yeah, I don’t care if I get it or not. Just wouldn’t mind having it for cheap. But now that the FEXT 1/60’armor isn’t coming out, I need one even less.

Man, the 1/60 VF-1J 30th Anniversary prices are crazy! I used to remember them practically being given away and now you'd be lucky to get it less than 40,000! :blink:

You just need to look farther from eBay. :search:

Get it now while it's still cheap. :db:

I would like the 30th and 35th anniversary schemes more if they were FULLY TAMPO'D.

The sticker sheet for the 35th is ridiculous. I hate applying stickers, especially on top of black.

I like the 35th a lot better than the 30th... but that's pretty faint praise.

I think I prefer the 30th in fighter, but the 35th in battroid.

The curved lines behind the cockpit look a bit like the UN Spacey logo (probably intentionally).

Tampo would make these amazing to me.  As they are, they're just ok.  I still need a 25th YF-19 or 1/48 VF-1.

Love my 25th YF-19 . I wish Arcadia would do another flat black anniversary Valk.

You should have your chance for the 1:48 now that Bandai is getting on a roll with those.

Only Yamato YF-19 I have, the black+gold looks so smooth.

I wouldn't want to start buying macross figures purely as an investment opportunity. Would rather enjoy the figure, transform it and admire it. Neither of these Anniversary VF1Js look good, to be honest.

Tell that to the guys and gals that collect TFs, Star Wars, 1/6 + 1/12 figures, comic books, bronies, and others.. They would like to have a word or so with you. <_< :aggressive:

So wonderfest had the pf O-D and the Sv-51 Ivanov mock up. Does anyone know what/when the next tease is going to be. Or are we still guessing and wishing?

I imagine a “Nora”. version of the SV-51 (and a cannon fodder) would be an easy guess..
