  1. Not sure if it's ok to post this question here but it is kinda pose related.   Would the old Yamato stands with the different adapters that came with them work with the newer Arcadia Valks. the Macross Zero specifically?  I've got one of the chrome/silver ones and wondered if it was worth keeping if it can't be used on those valks.

  2. What's the general consensus on which is better?  Renewal or Revival?  I have renewals of the VF-25S and 25F.  I have the fast pack sets for them too.  Wasn't sure if it was worth buying the new 25F set with everything included unless it was made better.  

  3. Any moderator that looks at this please let me know if anything is wrong with the post.  I had some text issues last time and it wasn't showing.  I just want to make sure it hasn't happened again.

  4. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.  For sale are (2) Yamato Macross Stands (selling both together as one sale).  One (left side of picture) is brand new, factory sealed with minor shelf wear.   The second (right side of picture) has been opened and is missing 1 of the adapters.  I believe it is the 1/48 scale adapter that is missing.  The opened stand has more wear on the outside of the box.  Only shipping in the USA.  Please PM  for a shipping quote or with any questions.  Thanks for looking.

    They're secure on my copies.


    Nope. I just detached the entire arm and then was easily able to access the screw under the shoulder pauldrons to loosen it.

    Side by side with the Bandai version. While Bandai's toy is excellent, it's really a VF-19 Advance posing as a YF-19. :p


    Nice.  Hopefully I am able to get one some day so that if I have to adjust the joints it'll be easy.

    Shoulder surgery was a success. Both the shoulder and bicep cover on the right arm were super tight. Loosened the inside screw just a touch. They're really overtightening them at the factory.


    Was it a pain in the a$$ getting to the screws to loosen them?

    I wish I was that organized.. all of mine are essentially grouped by.. "category?" I guess you can call it that.  They're scattered across a few rooms, and only stacked one-deep in closets most of the time, so I know exactly what's in every pot.

    I've definitely gone deep into the Tetris method, finding combinations of boxes that form even groupings.  The assorted Bandai exclusive super pack boxes make great little spacers to complete a row. :lol: 

    I love reading that other collectors do some of the same things that I do.  Makes me feel like I'm not alone in my freaky toy collecting.

    A horribly crooked kite on his copy



    Little stuff like that doesn't bother me that much.  But I guess with what they cost there should be better QC for stuff like that.  I worry more about breakage and the moveable pieces working properly.  Also fit and finish.

  10. These storage pics are incredible.  Are you guys able to display any of these?  Seems like too many to really be able to display effectively unless you have them all over the house/apartment 😄.  Which I'd be all for doing but doesn't seem like a good idea

    I don't think it's worse per se. There were a batch of the regular reissue production that Arcadia posted on their Twitter feed that has defects. At this point there are no official release date for the PF release after they posted some notice on their website a few months ago. There were some discussions of it here due to the Japanese word they used that translates to 'cancel' so we thought the PF was cancelled despite of online stores not removing the listings. I'm pretty sure they will fix everything first prior of announcing a new PF release date.

    Gotcha, thanks for the clarifiaction 👍

    The PFs are done from the batch of base YF-19 released few months back.

    But it appears the reissue of this base YF-19 has quite a bit higher defects than normal? 
    So just speculating, there could not be enough leftover for the PF after accounting for defects & replacements, so Arcadia might have to schedule a whole new production batch for it.

    So this new reissue is worse than the original release?  I'm asking because I considered trying to get a PF version.
