Whats next for Arcadia?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Ya , the Yammy VF-11 was considered an over priced shelf warmer for a while. But it was one of the most line art accurate VF’s too. I loved the ejection pod and the super parts were really well integrated. (I’m speaking about the 11-C as that was the only version I had) More tampo and a bit more articulation would make this a home run for me.

The articulation is definitely where the biggest improvements could be made. Think of the articulation on the Bandai DX VF-1 being done a VF-11 toy... that'd be amazing.

Arcadia appears to be have inherited all the VF-1 molds from Yamato, so there would be no new R&D needed for a VT-1 reissue. Just tampo print everything and take my money! 

 

Heck, it'll be even easier for Arcadia if they do a Booby Duck PF...

Packaged with both Roy and Hikaru?

I think I need a CF VF-1A.  There seems to be a brownie shortage.

It's safe to assume that the price will be atleast doubled or more from when Yamato released the VF-11 back then. VF-1/SSP back then cost around Y12800. Arcadia released it around Y21800. Yamato SV-51 is Y21800. Arcadia is Y39744. As for the Yamato VF-11, it was Y19740. So expect Arcadia to have this price to around Y37000-39000.

 

29000 is more realistic.

That would be nice. Realistically. But I just based it on how they price with their current releases comparing it to the Yamato prices. And most of them are doubled. Atleast if it's doubled then people are already prepared for it if Arcadia decides to do it.

I don’t think most of them were doubled though.  The 0 wasn’t, the 19 wasn’t, the 4 wasn’t, the VE-1 wasn’t.  Max and Millia weren’t (premium finish were.)

This. It's the only 1/60 VF I'm going to shell out for.

PF Hikaru VF-1J + GBP still seems like an obvious one.

I agree.  I would very much like to see it as I got into Macross collecting a year after Arcadia released their version of it.  It would be nice if they also included parts to go between TV and Movie versions.

I'd take a PF GBP especially if it came with the effect parts too.

Fair enough. It's just a 'guesstimate' on my part. Anyways, besides this price argument, the real question is IF Arcadia will do a VF-11.

I would put the odds somewhere around 0.00001% but we can always hope. I think it's more likely we'd see a DX YF-21 from Bandai and then a DX VF-11.

Screen accurate, bigger vertical stabilizers please...

That would be ideal, however is Arcadia going to pack the extra effect parts when the PE VF-1J with the GBP gets made?? :unknw:

If they do it will make a most likely buy to an instabuy.

Maybe they would do a super VF-1J like M&M and then do a PF GBP with missile effects accessory release separately.

I think with the pace they're going we'll definitely going to see their design for the VF-1 40th Anniversary Edition.

I'm totally on board with a PF GBP with missile effects. They need to get on that before Bandai releases their DX version! Shouldn't be hard since it's essentially just a reissue.

I'm down for 1/60 kits  but I can see Arcadia being apprehensive since it makes things a lot easier to KO(and there's already KO's of their stuff) and the Yamato kits seemed to sit until Yamato went out of business.

I would order that PF GBP in a heartbeat!!

oh how I wanted to put the stickers on mine but didn’t because I worried I might screw it up. Not to mention the chances of them peeling over time - unless I apply some sort of clear topcoat but I have no skills to do that. 

For 2019 I am just hoping that they will release the PF 0D before the end of the year.

Add weathering and I would triple-dip...like something done on this Yamato 1/48...

The weathered VF-1J GBP is a must, but so would any other GBP in this family.

Yup,  I picked up the VE-1 a while back when Arcadia re-released it.  Now, all I need is the VT-1.   I'm just grateful I'll have a shot at buying it if they do release it again as opposed to the impossible challenge of pre-ordering a Bandai DX valk.

Wasn’t aware there was a delay. But just an FYI Arcadia is not the delay. I have 4 stands scheduled to arrive in on the 9th from HLJ. The delay is more than likely from Amazon, or Arcadia has to fill in back orders.

7/9 is the delayed date though, the original date was in June.

These were scheduled to arrive on 7/8. Not sure why or how they got here sooner but I suspect a fold booster somewhere.
