Back in June, it was announced on a flyer within the newly released Macross Plus Blu-Ray that a new 1/60 YF-19 was due early next year from the newly christened Arcadia Toy Company. This will be the first new mold of a Macross Toy since their debut in the beginning for the year. With a price point of 34400 円 in Japan, this will be one important test in the new company’s venture into Macross Toys. But the positive buzz within the fandom has made this one highly anticipated toy. And with all the accouterments it comes with, it’s hard to resist even at the high cost… not to mention it’s (expletive) beautiful!
1/60 Perfect Transformation YF-19 with Fast Pack
About 31 cm (12.2″) total length (fighter mode): 1/60 scale
Price: 34,440 yen (%5 tax included) . To be released in April 2014

Good news… just heard from our new shirt providers and they said they can print the design on color shirts. The only thing they can’t print is the blue background with the text because the white ink would make it too expensive. So order yours in color, just put a note in the space provided or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s our recommended colors:

Model kit building Macross fans will be happy to finally give the classic VF-1 fighter some 0-G lovin’ sometime later this year. According to HLJ, they’ll be releasing the VF-1A/S kit.

Thanks to valkyriepm for posting.
Sorry I haven’t been able to update the toy and model news… long trips plus MWCon… less time. But here’s the new box art for the 1:72 VF-25F/S from Hasegawa as panted by Hidetaka Tenjin, of course! Goegeous as always. I can’t wait to see the build ups of these babies from our forum model masters!
