Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014


SCOOPUDA!

Recommended Posts

So sexy! I was late on the pre-order, I hope I'm able to get one *crosses fingers*

EDIT: Should I pre-order at more than one site? Don't want to end up buying two.. lol..

EDIT2: Newbie question. I preordered one at Amiami as it's still listed. What are the chances of not getting one if they don't have stock? Similarly, I checked at Hobbysearch and their reservations are closed, but at HLJ preorder is still available as well. Is HLJ more reliable in terms of receiving the preorder because you have to pay now? THANKS!

You do not pay now or pre-pay with HLJ. You pay when the item is available.

Either way you should be fine with AmiAmi...plus they (amiami) are more difficult to cancel orders with and they frown upon it. FYI,HLJ is very simple as you can simply go into your account and just cancel there. No muss no fuss.

Where the new YF-19 is concerned, since it's built to order, availability isn't an issue; if your preferred web shop has preorders open and you reserve one, barring some extraordinary snafu on Arcadia's part, you're guaranteed to receive a copy. Any stock around after release will likely be due to last minute cancellations and no-pays; this should work out the same as Yamato's VF-4G.

All the pics together:

Very cool - thanks for posting these.

Edit to add;

Like Scream Man said I'd also love to see some side profile pictures of fighter mode with the landing gears up.

Yea. Every shot I've seen of this new YF-19 has the wings not swept forward far enough. Hopefully it's just a fluke

Well, considering that the wing is on so many hinges due to the high speed mode, maybe it can allow it to be more swept forward to your liking. For me i like it as it is.

i like that the front part of the LERX is attached to the back of the hips instead on the side of the torso, makes it different from the VF-19's.

Hopefully the chest, backplate, and shoulders' paint will be the same color hue, it looks like they're still a little off (well aware that this is still a T3 sample).

Yamato/Arcadia has been doing a very good job in matching the paint on diecast. Usually you can't tell much from the naked eyes, but photograph will make it pops.

I hope the wings in all modes somehow lock into place and it isn't just a friction joint. I could see that becoming loose, especially depending on how it's stowed/angled in Battroid.

Yamato, and now Arcadia, have had to fudge the transformation of that part on both the VF-19 and now the YF-19 though it looks more accurate here on the YF-19 even if the transformation still isn't quite so. It's easier to do it this way on the YF-19 then the VF-19.

Well that is something that I never went through the mental gymnastics to think about: Hardpoints in battroid. Looks alright folded, and I suppose ok extended if you were in space. I imagine it being quite cumbersome to do that in atmosphere.
