Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

This was first announced at last year's Wonderfest (this year's is this Sunday (2/18)).  So... we might hear something then.

Hopefully some protoype over WonderFest like what they did on their VF-0D last 2014. So if we see some prototype this month, it's safe to assume that this will get released same month next year like the VF-0D. (Announcement and Prototype in 2014. Released in 2015.) If that's the case then developing SV-51 is taking longer than the VF-0D. Hmmm.

A shame nothing is there but is that a photo of an actual 51 and not a render?

Render. Actually looks like the same poster from last years WF at the start of this thread.

Because bandai gets all licences,  I guess Arcadia has its priorities elsewhere

So the future isn't looking too bright for a new SV-51 release, maybe someone reminded Arcadia how poorly the Yamato version sold.

I was actually expecting some resin copies of Ivanov's version; however we ended up getting the poster version from two years ago. This reminds me of a 3rd party TF company (who is well known to make stellar products) in which shows a few renders for the pubic, goes silent after the show and months later the product shows up on the shelf..

I think that Arcadia has enough on their plates as it is (in regards to the premium finish Valks and the SDF-1 as their focusing on that more). For myself, I rather let Arcadia focus on the Premium finish stuff first and then tackle the SV-51 afterwards. I rather have a well built product then have one riddled with multiple flaws and QC issues upon getting a copy.

This is worrying

I expected that show at least the prototype so this makes me believe that release at the end of December if it's to come out this year:(

Well, atleast we can afford to get 2 the most if they will going to release it next year. :rolleyes:

 

And TBH, it's so expensive to support Arcadia. :p

The only reason I'm not super bummed is financially I'm tapped out for a while. I have two more orders on the way and that's it for a while. 

That said, if Arcadia does come through with a new SV-51 I'm all on board! B))

Arcadia valks are not too usually budget friendly to say the least (as they can go for a hefty sum after MRSP). I managed to get an Arcadia VF-1S DYRL Roy at a slight discount as it was used within my budget of around $200 CND and can pay a bit more if there's another valk that catches my attention (beyond $250 CND is my limit).

You can actually get pretty good deals if you know where to look.

Almost all of us here know this already... until we panic to secure one ofcourse. :lol:

Then you hit F5 until your digits starts to crumble which may (or may not) secure your order in the process. :blink:

No need to jump and get excited about the "supposed leaks of the new SV-52"... Is the bird going to take off by 2020?? :rolleyes:

If so, might as well get another valk in the mean time.. <_<

TBH, I really don't mind for the SV-51 to get released on 2020. ^_^

Anyone want a Yamato SV-51 Ivanoff before Arcadia releases the upgraded version?

Note: I don't know if its the V.1 or the V.2 version (fairly reasonable in price than compared to other listings)

https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1078008827&ref=list

Note that one's got some sun bleaching. The stand's got it bad, hard to tell if there's any on the figure itself.

Well... You can put the valk in battroid version along the beach getting a suntan with shades, towels and the whole nine yards! :lol: 

Edit: On a second though, good for doing customs if anyone is up for it.

For customs? Hmmm. Here’s a suggestion. And it has cool looking hot chick as a pilot. :wub:

Now that since that PF SDF-1 is done and completed, is it plausible to say that the Arcadia SV-52 project is a go ahead? :search:

51, wondefest isn't too far away, I'm guessing we'll get lots of answers then. Sv51 mock up, anniversary VF1, VF0 ghost bundle, and I'll guess a PF hikaru 1J with GBP.

Hopefully that this new and improved SV-51 doesn't fall apart like one of your VF-0 valks jenius,  during your future reviews. :huh:

Honestly, I could care less about a PF GBP... I want a PF Super Hikaru 1J, or TV-style Super VF-1S.

This Sv-51 seems like it's so far at the bottom of their to-do list, I'm not expecting anything yet.
