What's next for Bandai? (Wish List)

Recommended Posts

I don’t understand why we never got a YF-21 already or at least this summer!

woukd have made the obvious perfect companion to their YF-19..

Is the YF-21 design not so popular in Japan??

I think it makes sense to release the 1/48 first since no major changes to the mold. Quick and easy...

But for a yf-21, a new mold for bandai 1/60 scale, and that would be special enough perhaps for a end of year release...

pure speculation it’s a valk of course, it could end up with just a 1/48 gbp set as the end year release...

Yeah, a DX YF-21 is what I'm waiting for!

I'll be okay with vf-11 first. Or any other vf not from frontier or delta. Even fire valkyrie.

My current wishlist for Bandai is: 1) DX YF-21, 2) DX Kairos Arad Custom, and 3) A recolor of the DX VF-31S into a Skull Leader variant (like what they did with the YF-29). Oh, and release Chuck's and Arad's supers soon please. :D

I'm always down for a wish-list. And with a Max TV-1A in a deluxe mold finally on the way, (how did we never get one in an official 1/55 release?) now seems like an especially good time.


1) DX VF-1D
2) DX tv version SDF-1
3) HMR Q-Rau (Millia tv version)
4) DX cannon fodder VF-1A


...That's really it. Anything else is just icing at this point.

DX VF-25 Re-Renewal Version. Previous version is super dated already.

DX VF-4. Yamato already did all the hard work, just copy them but in FB2012 colors. :p

DX YF-21. Yamato's is still great, but there's plenty of room for improvement.

I’ll buy a DX YF-21, DX VF-11B, and DX Ghost X-9 for sure.  I’ll also take them as HMR.

I really want a vf-1 that scales with the other dx chogokin

It would be kinda small though. I love the VF-1 in 1/48 scale; big boy for the win.

Same here. Would be nice to have an in-scale VF-1 besides the Frontier and Delta Valks. And it’s going to be cheaper too. ^_^ :good:

True, Yamato did it. But we’re talking about DX Chogokins scaling here.

If we just want to be that way, yes we can line it up like that. Which I already did it at home. But I’m just agreeing with @t040484. For me, in regards to being all DX Chogokins figures. As much as YamArcadia VF-1’s lines up nicely in-scale with DX Frontier and Delta, it doesn’t have that ‘DX Chogokin’ look. Which in the end I can just do it via Photoshop. ^_^

DX Chogokin isn't really 1/60, it's more "all robots roughly the same size".

Well, considering the fact that the YF-21/VF-22 is my favorite Valk design ever, I'm so glad that everyone else is also looking forward to a new DX toy from Bandai. Seriously, as a fan of the design, it's a crying shame to see it get so little love. Not to mention, the Yammie YF-21 has aged so darn poorly. 

The thing is, how likely are they going to do it? I know they had plans for a Hi-Metal YF-21, but scrapped it. Are fans in Japan also clamoring for one? Heck, at this point, if they wanted to tie it into Delta, I wouldn't mind if they did a VF-22 Immelmann version first.

Seriously, if they ever come out with a DX YF-21, I will go out of my way to save up for two, if not three. Imagine if they implemented the ratcheting hip joints + detachable limbs with a press of a button.

When and how often does Bandai usually announce new Macross products anyway?

I would love another yf-21 from somebody.  I’m thinking that they think they wouldn’t sell well or they would have difficulties improving on the old design so they’re leaving it alone.

The old design can be improved cause even Mr.K from Arcadia has declared he wants to do so.

That, in the hopes that Arcadia will finally gives him the go signal to produce it.

Except that it would be 5 years from now and cost $500 from Arcadia....By then they'd have to redo the 19 AGAIN ... :lol:

From waaaay over here on the west coast, it seems like the YF-21 design isn’t so popular in the land of the rising sun..wah.

What'll be interesting to see is if Bandai does make a VF-11B DX would they make it closer to 1/60 scale or do the "robots of similar size". If it's the latter, the 11B should be closer to scale with the new 1/48 VF-1 line

I doubt that a DX VF-11B will be closer to scale with the recent DX VF-1. Because if it is, then a DX VF-11B will be bigger than the DX YF-19. You don't want to have a big VF-11B beside your YF-19.

If given a choice between a DX or HMR of a particular valkyrie, I'll take the DX version. Bring on the DX YF-21 already!

A million times this, I don't want to knock the HMR and the inherent benefits of a smaller size and less expensive price point, but for me they're not fun to play with.

So a DX 21 and 11 would make me very happy.

 A DX YF-21 is probably the top item on my wish list.  At least for items that haven't been teased/prototyped in any way.

I know it is a complicated design, but I think Bandai is at a place where they could really nail it.
