picked these up on evil-bay last night. pretty good price for all 4! $107 AUD shipped

Nice score! Great pieces of Macross toy history...

Even though the V1 tends to be forgotten and maligned by most....it started the current new age in Macross valkyrie toy collectibles...with apparently no end in sight!

Here is a Yamato catalog featuring some of your V1 valks....

Even though there are newer toys that look better, they don't look terrible either. Considering a lot of people leave their valks in fighter mode and never transform them, the V1 Yamatos aren't a bad way to go if that's what you're going to do. Every now and then I toy with the idea of picking up a V1 VF-1D to display in fighter mode with my TV 1S, since I've all but despaired of Arcadia ever reissuing the V2 1D.

It is nowadays if it's the weathered version set like it's listed and Arcadia ain't releasing sets to satisfy our demands for the regular S/S parts. The parts set alone must be around 18000 yen last check. Nice grabs at the expo and con.

Someone needed super/strike parts REALLY bad. :D

LOL - right?

wow. that's a grip. i found a 1s v2 at anime expo for a hundred. and another for $125. at comic con. strike parts can't be that much.

Yep, the entire set were weathered versions but still, close to $ 500 for an opened set, ouch. Full disclosure I don't watch the prices of the weathered versions at all so I don't know if that was a fair price or not, it just seems like a big bullet to bite.

prices for weathering specials on the valk and strike packs are not on the cheap end as i've seen, but these are getting very hard to find now.

Hmm. Well then I'm glad I'm not in the market. Good luck to those who are! :D

yeah, i agree i wouldn't pay that much.

i was after weathered max vf-1s for a long time. and was at one point. willing to pay crazy prices but found one at a decent price before prices sky rocketed: i guess the collectiblity charm is there... bc yamato limited the max 1s to 300 pieces.

what separated max 1s from all other weathered editions was the the different colored intakes, head lasers and feet vs the regular max 1s making him another variant. (all the others were just regular versions with weathering applied)

the variant light grey colors make it more low viz, complimented w/ weathering effects... man,these pics still look good :wub:

Is it just me or are the prices of Yamato valks rocketing up on eBay? Bandai frontier valks prices are staying steady, but the Yamato's are climbing up. I wonder if the market is sensing scarcity?

I agree; I follow eBay very closely and find that even open box common variants are going around 130-140ish.

To me it appears that the market has realized that Arcadia will not be producing in anything close to large volumes and so the only alternative for your habit is the secondary market.

I for one will only buy if I can get a deal but it looks like those days are over. Shame, but I have high hopes for the hi-metal line. The 1/60 scale has all but priced me out.

Yeah, I followed a few auctions a while back of several TV-style valks. They were all ones I already owned, so really just following to see what they would end at. I think the auctions all finished at $150 or higher, without shipping. And they were unboxed valks too.

I agree with Duff -- Arcadia is really dragging their feet on the reissues, and may possibly never get to some variants, so people who own those are hanging on to them, and those that are selling can command high prices.

I already ignore the gems of his/her collector so I opted to bid for the assembly kits, unfortunately, I forgot the closing time today and my sniper bid was too low

yamato panic is officially back

Yep....I think most collectors have come to realize that Arcadia will never re-release the majority of Yamato valks....

The 1/60 Zentran cosplay outfit was an all-time record!

Wonder if that was yen-for-yen the biggest value increase? What was the original MSRP for that thing?

You know things are hopeless when a Kakizaki combo set goes for 34,000 JPY!!! ;)

http://page11.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/n141085175

lol! kakizaki was great at providing comic relief! i can't imagine the series without a character like him. but yeah, prices are really jumping up!

i think the zentran suit was 8295yen back then.

yup, this is also what i found online. i suppose it would've been lower without the JPN taxes?

LoL! The bidding war was fierce in the last minutes. I wouldn't call it hopeless, though.

:ph34r::)

Rather I'm looking forward to seeing Kaki-no deal in person and completing my DYRL squad. Lvl 1 Complete!

Idk if it's panic... so much as people realized we won't get better versions from Arcadia, so it's drying up. People are holding on to their Yammies and/or selling them for more because of scarcity.

Yahoo Japan used to be 4 pages of 1/60's, now it's like 1 page. Ebay is only a handful of listings.
