BANDAI DX YF-19!!

It's definitely not a match but it's much better than the bright green, no?

Much better, yes.  You should paint the front two mounts to match... and then spray a couple layers of matte clear coating, to knock down the sheen and give it a more consistent finish.

How did you attach the display stand to the side of your shelf so securely?

And more importantly, how does the display stand hold up the toy so securely? :unknw:

If I were you, I would give a try to Tamyia spray AS-9 (dark green) or AS-14 (olive green) on both front and back pylons. Just sand gently the acrylic paint before applying the spray can.

Well, the answer is simple.....I didn't.  That photo is sideways!  I couldn't rotate it so I just said screw it.  The stand is just laying flat and gravity is doing its thing.

LOL, I think they are likely just pulling your leg.

Color matching is a pain. Good luck.

Arcadia adapter are for ... Arcadia products :-)

Someone correct me, but I think the SV-262 adapters should work with the Bandai DX YF19

Crazy question guys. I am an MISB collector so I very rarely remove these items from there boxes. How much does the YF-19 weigh in grams without the armor parts?

 

I was one of the lucky ones. Both my YF-19s came with the antennas intact. I did not remove them from their tray though :-)

The SV-262 adapter does work, however the upper sitting side brackets where the valk sits on is a few mm taller. It was mentioned in the Yetistand thread.

At this point, I've just accepted that any Bandai valk is probably going to need some combination of tampo stripping and repainting.  Fortunately, the wings are fairly easy to remove, and black is an easy color to match.

wow, not even a pound. Thank you so much though! How about the DX VF-31J? 

 

Still much better quality than the Arcadia. Writing on wings or not :pardon:

same +2...  basically why I passed on this one and stuck with my Arcadia. 

You are crazy. You would pass on the DX for that reason? Dude, sell your Arcadia and just buy the DX. The Arcadia was just too flimsy for me.

I'm not sure what's wrong with your Arcadia YF-19, but I love mine as is. I find that the DX one is more flimsy due to that gap in the legs in Fighter mode. Not to mention the over-engineered chest transformation. :rolleyes:

And having both I think is much better to go. Having both is like having the best of both worlds. Flimsy or not. :db:

I like both, personally. Arcadia is more anime-accurate in appearance, Bandai is more detailed. Plus it has ankles that aren't too weak for gerwalk.

I'm very happy with the DX but I only started collecting just about when the Delta figures were being released so I missed out on a lot of the Yamato/Arcadia releases.

The VF-31J is 421 grams.

The DX YF-19 has great heft also the Arcadia one, man YF 19 what a beautiful design it has, I have One Yamato YF-19, YF-19 Double Nuts, Arcadia YF -19, VF 19 Advance, and the DX YF-19, best design in my opinion. :D

421? Impressive! It weighs as much as the MP-10 Optimus. 

 

Actually you began collecting at the right time. There are a few Arcadias I can't live without. I've sold most of mine two years ago. The Delta valks are masterfully designed Valks (at least IMO). The YF-19 will remain as my favorite design. It just looks amazing in all modes!

Mine didn't feel like it was on par with the DX YF-19. Yes, the Arcadia version was beautiful but felt frail in comparison. Anime accuracy is a must of course!

Did Arcadia address the loose ankles for the YF-19? My Yamato Fire Valk ankles are loosey goosey but still stands in Battroid mode.

I remember the days when these were only a wish. Now we have a great selection to choose from.

Thanks for sharing Bing.

No. Arcadia's YF-19 ankles were arguably the worst ever since they were mostly loose out of the box. Mine faceplanted itself once (or rather uniboob planted) in battroid mode and slightly dented the nosecone. I have never trusted leaving it on battroid mode ever since.

I managed to have mine standing up in gerwalk for a few weeks. As soon as I touched it, it decided to fall forward into the cockpit though.

As much as I bash the Arcadia, I do regret selling it. The YF-19 is possibly the most attractive Valk design there is. What I would do just to have a DX YF-21 right now.

 

Hell, I would lose my mind if Bandai released a DX Regult with a detailed cockpit.

@mcfly50 is also selling his DX YF-19 MISB in the F/S section. Just promoting a fellow member here. ;)

I actually just bought this YF-19 from mcfly50, and it looks beautiful next to my VF-11B.  :)

Nice! :good:

Now, imagine a 'DX VF-11B' and 'DX YF-21' with tampos like that. ^_^
