Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014


SCOOPUDA!

Recommended Posts

I'd love to see pictures of the final off tool sample myself before committing to a preorder, and the YF-19 always struck me as Ivory in color; the original 1/60 YF-19 was perfect in this regard... make it any version of white, Arcadia, and it's a no sale.

I agree. The colours on the prototype are very nice as it is and accurate enough.

Maybe he's following tweets that are seen as the "majority" that are saying that the prototypes are too dark? I'm curious too if there are anyone who's saying that current colours are good enough.

But still, we will just have to wait till the new sample comes out and hope that it's not too much of a colour change.

This spectrum of color (yellow/light brown) has to be one of the hardest to match. My house is a similar color, and I had to take multiple samples to Home Depot for them to get a color match, and I'd say it's still 10% off from perfect.

Not sure how possible this is, but it would be cool if Arcadia could find out from either Kawamori or from production notes what color they used or intended to be used. They could even scan some original cells to get an idea.

I'd personally like to see it darker, but I have an old SHE model that is quite a bit on the lighter shade and it looks fine to me as well. I think I'll be happy regardless of what they pick.

I can't find any tweet where he said it was going to be whiter than or white like the DYRL valks.

I can only assume you are getting confused with the content of the 21:06 tweet on the 7th, where he says "This is not about the 19, but the subsequent DYRL VF-1's are all going to be white, in accordance with everyone's opinions."

wait wait wait wait!!!, there will be no longer a difference between TV and DYRL white?? why? I loved this small detail. I'm starting to fear that Arcadia could fall with the terrible problem of listening to obsessed fans crazy ideas and start ruining stuff by trying to please everyone. Arcadia doesn't need to change standard things, just improve old error and add more stuff.

He did mention way back the 19 will be lighter color so i didn't bother to look carefully.

[Kawai] child's [iroaji] (yf-19) is adjusted based on the comment gotten from you. Wait for the progress result a little more and ….
A basic image is the current main body color though the main body color becomes white inclined to somewhat from the current state. Because white doesn't appear strongly, I think it is perhaps safe.

Come on, guys! Too white? YF-19? Something was up the entire time...

Thanks for clearing that up, David ;)

...as for all the VF-1s being the same shade of white...that makes me sad. If anything make them all DYRL white PLEASE.

i'll move this over to the vf-1 thread but seeing the further responses after that first tweet...

TV版のような白ですか?
そうでございます。
(tweeter)"Is it white like the TV version?"
Mr. K: "That is right. "

Wait......they will be white like the TV versions???......suddenly (as of yet unseen) photoshop'd box covers are no longer a reason to cancel my preorders......never understood why they weren't white to begin with.....every time I've seen them in DYRL.....they look white to me...not off-white.....

Aw.. I was kinda looking forward to the off-white DYRL scheme, considering it's my first. Oh well, white white is fine too. Decals are the best.

So that means that the revised YF-19 will be a slightly lighter tan-yellow-cream than it is now?
