With the exception of the floppy wings the fighter mode probably there was not much to change 

I hope the biggest improvements apply to the Battroid mode and finally gives stability with a better lock system

According to me these are the differences that I found in fighter mode with regard the Yamato

I don't own the old Yamato SV-51. Never got into Zero back in the day.  However, I think we can all agree that Arcadia's VF-0S is an absolutely rock solid toy and in light of recent Bandai shannigans, I'm really tempted to give my money to Arcadia this time around as one of my high end toy purchases for the year. I want to believe Arcadia will do a n outstanding job on this one. And guess what???...I won't have an issue getting one when pre-orders open or even after it releases more than likely...<_<

Yeah, the VF-0S is an absolute gem among all the valk toys we have. But it is worth pointing out that the 0D and 0A that came before it had some major issues that had to be ironed out for the 0S to be as good as it is.

I have to agree. Would that mean Nora's would be better than Ivanov's release? Hmmm. I only wanted to have Ivanov's. Here's wishing that there will be no hiccups on that one. :rolleyes:

Yeah, I'm just hoping that they get it right from the get go this time. With the VF-0 experience and all the time they are taking on this one, I would certainly hope they catch any issues before going into final retail production.

Do the wings look longer than on the Yamato?

As for Gerwalk, I gotta call BS. Ain’t no way one little joint is going to support the wing and all that ordnance in that position - unless you use a transparent bracket.

Once again I hope the biggest improvements come in the Battroid mode my old Yamato had a very loose connector that constantly disconnected and in consequence it was very difficult to keep standing

I have always been asking my self what is the better version of the VF 0S, the Yamato one look way sturdier than the Arcadia one imo.

Also the Yamato version color looks way more original and has more markings than the complete white color of the Arcadia one, sorry for being off topic. :ph34r:

The Arcadia one feels way sturdier in hand. As for the SV-51, one thing I can see is they reinforced the joint between the outer and inner wings. As to how strong it is remains to be seen.

"Solid" is not a word I associate with the Yamato 0S. "Floppy" and "explode-y" are more appropriate.

And "droopy" since the front portion of the fuselage is not aligned properly.

Don't ask for new pictures, Ignacio. Because in case you didn't notice everytime we see new ones, we always try to find mistakes. :rolleyes:

My only question. Whens the PO?

They're still in prototype stage so I'm guessing in the next couple of months just in time for a winter release.:pardon: I'm wishing that this will get pushed towards the end of the year so we can have a 'spending break' after Sentinel's Mospeada releases. Don't you agree? ^_^

If the plan is for an August release the PO should be in May going by their recent timelines.

Cool. Where does it come from, Shukenzero?

I think it's from Dengeki Hobby/ Loopaza magazine scans.. As for which issue, I can't say for sure, unless @Shukenzero can zoom in it for better detail and clarity.

It’s from a preorder scan. I preordered one today for HKD2392. Was on the fence but seeing how there should be new parts and it was also the very first Macross Valk I ever purchased and being the first I purchased when I moved to HK, I guess nostalgia won hehe

It's already available for preorder?

BTW where would you go in HK for Macross Preorders?  Thanks.

Most stores do the Tamashii exclusives and Arcadia releases. As far as I know, almost all of them don’t do preorders for the more popular Valks. Check out Sino Centre or the usual toy hubs for preorder openings. Only once I was able to preorder the VF-31S via this method. All others are wait for release day stock.

Well.. That's the price of two Arcadia vf-1 valks right there (maybe the PE version at the discount in which some stores are offering).

Waiting for the reviews before I decide to bite on the eventual Nora.

Yeah... I was expecting over 30k yen.  I wasn't expecting basically 40k.  I might wait and see if this goes on discount or something.
