It's got pedigree, though.  SDF-018 has appeared on most toy and model representations of the VF-4, 'cause it was there on the very first: the Musashiya garage kit...

...and rumor has it Kawamori himself did the box art. :hail:

Oh I know. This exact same conversation, with the same pics and article links, already took place when the HMR version came out.

It makes about as much sense to me as UNT SPACY on older gunpla models. :aggressive:

Scale models of fictional aircraft (from decades-old hand-drawn animation) provide such a wealth of creative opportunities for unseen markings and nomenclature... and yet, we fans try increasingly hard to reproduce each other's work down to the minutest detail.

I'm surprised so much gets canonized after the fact, based on "that's what the garage kit used" or "Tenjin's art included it" or "Kawamori once drew it that way." :lol:

Do FromJapan always drag their feet actually shippinf.

sometimes,   they are deciding which oversize , bigger shipping box to use B))

below is just a example .  not a Arcadia box but similar in size.

 

Smaller box on cardboard, then shrink-wrapped to keep in place, then place in bigger shipping box. then sents out higher shipping invoice . lol <_<

When?  I paid for DHL on Sunday and I’ve heard nothing since.

I'm in the same boat as you. I hate paying for an express shipping method only for the company to sit on it longer than it would take to make the trip halfway across the globe.

That's crazy-expensive for a toy this size. HLJ charged me $40 for FedEx when they shipped the regular version exactly one month ago. I'm assuming the boxes for both products are nearly identical. I wonder if part of the higher price is proxies taking the Arcadia shipping box and putting that in a still larger box. If anyone here is getting their PF through HLJ, I'd be curious to know what the FedEx/DHL cost is, for comparison.

Okay, looks like I need to make that set of decals for the regular finish....

Anasazi, please put me down for two sets of VF-4 decals.  Thank you!

They did finally ship it.  But DHL seems to be frakking up on the regular now.

Mine shipped Wednesday. I guess it took a couple of days to find a bigger box for 2x units? Hopefully it'll be here tomorrow.

Shipping cost was nuts and I'm hesitant to order the YF-19 PF through them if pretty much all the savings evaporate due to high shipping. I'll wait and see how much it costs through other retailers.
