Arcadia 1/60 SV-51 Ivanov

Recommended Posts

Let's hope for some nice Po discounts.

I’m fine with my Yamatos as well, but my collector mentality tells me I have to buy it to complete the Arcadia M0s.

Though asking price. If Bandai is clever they could really kill Arcadia by announcing a HMR VF-0 and SV-51 now.

To bad we don't have something akin to MG or PG Valkyrie releases, I think we are at a point where this is much needed.

Well, I'll be buying that, plus the PF VF-0D.

And not much else during that timeframe.

Non PF version I believe. Since when did Ivanoff's and Nora's get the PF version from M0? 

Can anyone imagine if a stealth version of the SV-51 ever gets done... :ph34r:

Same price as the VF-0D when it came out so I guessing the same PO pricing.

My old e-mail confirmation is only in Dollars so I can't comment on the Yen amount of the time but based on conversions today it's not the same price.

Checked my Amiami order for the VF-0D as reference 31400yen. We'll see how it goes when PO goes up.

Edit: Pretty neat Lego SV-51.

The most outstanding is the improvement of the double hinge in the arms and also apparently the wings could support the missiles weight this time

Wait was there a PO for the VF-0D already?

I want to downgrade to an HMR VF-0. I hate details, hardpoints, and correctly sized pilots.

I'm honestly just hoping this ends up at a pretty steep discount.  That might be the only way I can justify buying one.  Enemy mecha + less-popular-franchise + ridiculous price seems like a good combination to be a shelf warmer.

Arcadia might be considering that already, though, and make this a very limited run (hence the high price already).

An HMR VF-0 would be probably 1/4th the price and have better paint applications so..... I could see the draw.

That’s more than likely an SK special, as he’s been known to use LEGO in many of his prototypes.

Nope. This was for the original Arcadia VF-0D release. No news yet on the PF one.

 

Edit: Yup. Lego and paper SV-51. They should make a how-to tutorial for those lego valks as I got a bunch of my kids old ones. I know folks out there made some of them already.

It’s not the size of your Valkyrie that matters, it’s how much fun you can have with it! :p

I never owned the original one.  I’m not sure what I’m supposed to gather from this pic.

I did own the original, and I don't know what's so great about those pics.

Well, there's an open-used-joints loose/cracked Ivanov at Mandarake for ¥20,000. So at least the price doesn't seem terrible relatively if it really is better plastic/articulation/no sagging wings.

I will get this and the eventual Nora and then my Zero collection is pretty much done. Not interested in a CF version, but what are the chances Arcadia will make one?

Just seems like the bookend to an era of Yammie/Arcadia valks. I started with the Yanmie SV-51 and I didn’t know what show it was. Just knew it looked killer and never looked back.

Honestly I think ¥20,000 is way too much for a floppy , cracked  Ivanov. That’s an ¥11-12k fixer-upper..

Lol. Same ,same . I’m sure it’s an improvement. And as far as collecting goes, I’m sure it will satisfy all. 

I’m just done buying everything being put out these days , as my collection is brimming over and some of the oldies are still great. I’m not , by any means done collecting, just being VERY selective.

The fact it's still worth even $100, with a $400 new version coming out and all that damage, gives me hope the Arcadia ones will sell decently enough.

To be fair you can get it for $320 right now at AE.  That's not exactly $400.
