Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014


SCOOPUDA!

Recommended Posts

And I'm thinking, "why does anyone care about the box art, I don't play with the boxes."

If I had more than one of these... and some talent, I'd probably attempt to paint the red stripes on the other two (because of course I'd have three) blue and green so my triplet of YF-19's resembled Vermilion Squadron.

I keep boxes and I agree with s001! The box SUCKS big time. They seriously need to hire someone to make awesome box art for their future releases. Wasted opportunity. ANYWHO....watched Plus again on Sunday to get me primed for the arrival of this thing!

I personally wouldn't care if these came in compact plain white boxes. I buy these online so it's not like the box would catch my eye in a store and get an impulse buy out of me.

Of course, these are indeed sold in stores so they do need an eye catching box and this box seems like it'll do just fine.

cool. thanks! guess I just wasn't paying attention -- don't remember it sounding like him

Lol no it does not sound like him. I even have the 4 episodes on my phone. I can't wait for this but as someone mentioned earlier my wallet can wait

I've thrown every box away. All fifty of them... (God, I have fifty of these things!?)

Even though the odds of me selling them are low, I'd still try to keep them, as there's a chance I might pick up whatever better iteration comes out later on. Case in point, the YF-19....

Funny how this quickly builds up eh?

The only iteration of the 19 I own is the Double Nuts so that one is staying around purely because of the color scheme. If they release a new version that's better I'll just give the old one to my buddy Kevin, he'll dig it.

I've been hoping something like this would be a reality ever since 2006 - I was always a little letdown by the V.1 1/60, with its large gullet, non-locking chest, and really skinny legs. It just never looked "right" in any mode it was in. This? This one's a different story.

How much is EMS and Fed Ex shipping generally? I don't think I want to wait for the cheapest option on HLJ.

Best guestimate? Probably around $ 30 to the States, give or take.

Someone else can keep me honest.

Oh my god, the pilot figures are poseable!! Jan/Yang can move his arm and Isamu can turn his head!! That's incredible!

EDIT -- Also, fold booster attachment parts confirmed, for use with the Yamato one!

okay, this has probably been covered before, but in case I missed it, please humour me..

Do the wings actually extend like that?! Or did they remove a part to show how the inner mechanism works?
That looks fragile and awkward..hope it's at least made of die-cast

Also nice hint for the fold booster at the end.
