Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

Recommended Posts

I've pre-ordered the premium vf-0s recently through Nippon Yassan. This is only because the first release is more expensive now than the premium.

Just giving you a heads up, @anubis20 is selling a first release brand new Arcadia VF-0S for $350 shipped within US CONT. That's cheaper than the Premium Finish at NY in case you're just comparing prices. ;)

Thanks! I wasn't sure there were any sub $400. I'll have a chin wag now thanks

I see it. I want it. But the sticker shock tho... I guess I'm not getting one. 

Maybe they'll rerelease a fighter w/ booster combo. I might be persuaded to jump on that.

My source states that the Booster Combo will be released and will done with the VF-0A first followed by the VF-0S.  Premium finishes of that version are unlikely at this point and it serves as the end point of the 0A/0S print line.

This is what I've been holding out for, that is great news for me.  Can you say anything about the reliability of your "source?" (I understand if you can't)?

Urgh a bundle and not as a separate release? Most likely a skip then.

The VF-0D didn't have a ghost booster, so that much makes sense. This news does raise a bunch of questions, though. Will we get a stand-alone premium Shin VF-0A release like we are getting with the 0S? What about the VF-0A brownie that was teased? 

I'm not sure if I'm going to buy the VF-0S again just to get the ghost booster, but Shin's 0A is a possibility. It will be tough deciding between this rumored box set and a premium version if both are announced. Whatever we end up getting, though, I hope Arcadia fixes the quality issues in the new batch.

Not "news" yet, just a rumor.

Hmmm. A bundle set. So if this rumor is true then do you guys think that Arcadia will fix the Ghost Boosters wing clip attachment to the VF-0 or keep it as is. And yeah, pass for me since I really don't need another VF-0. Money saved. ^_^

I'm hoping the new ghost booster is updated to clip into Arcadia's VF-0A/S without stressing any delicate parts. That's the only way I would even consider purchasing the rumored bundle. If they end up using the same mold Yamato did, with no changes, then I will pass on it too.

Well this rumor leaves me in a bit of a quandary. I passed on the VF-0S the first time as I already had the Yamato and was fine with it. When the premium was announced I was going to pass on that as well but eventually gave in and pre-ordered it. Now with the booster bundle I would probably prefer that over the premium and I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually cheaper.

If this rumor ends up being true I hope they officially announce it before payment is due on the premium so that I can cancel it. Knowing my luck Arcadia will probably wait to announce it to avoid people doing exactly that.

Yeah, that is part of the reason I'm inclined to believe the rumor.  It fits entirely with Arcadia's MO.

I do wish we had more than "I know a guy," but sometimes you can't be specific on sources.

I'm fine staying with the premium VF-0S I think.

Though I wouldn't mind a premium re-issue of the VF-0D, seeing as it'd almost certainly have the leg fixes from the VF-0S, and the secondary market for those is stupid.

I hear you on that point. I could use a release, even a standard 0D will do, where the intake warning markings match. :p

Rumors. Hmmm. I guess the 'only' rumor I'm concerned about is Arcadia's SV-51 Ivanov. I mean, we didn't get any info or details on that one since last year. What are the chances that there will be any updates on that one this year? :rolleyes:

The SV-51 is another one I'm hoping Arcadia delivers on with the first run, whenever they get to releasing it.

I don't want to see disintegrating plastic parts again, like I did with my Yamato Nora. :mellow: Sad day.
