Arcadia 1/60 Perfect Transformation VF-0D for 2015

Recommended Posts

Hands down I love this VF-0D, its not floppy, super tight joints, everything locks in place and the added Die-cast metal gives it that extra balancing weight, even the hands hold the Gunpod nice & secure. If you haven't ordered one yet.... Do it!! B))

So I just dug out some missiles from my 1/60v2 VF-1's and they do not fit. The pegs on those are 2.2mm while the pegs on the 0D missile pods are 1.9mm.

Way to go Arcadia. When are you releasing the $100.00 extra weapons pack..... :angry:

Don't need a missile pack. We got enough missiles to last the next 5 releases with the 19 ;)

Only enough for two hardpoints each wing.

So it's the pointless opposite to their YF-19. The YF-19 came with TONS of ordnance that was never seen nor used onscreen, nor did we see such equipment used by any other member of the -19 family. But had enough of it to load the valk up 3x over.

Yet the 0D, is lacking much of the "Zero" equipment seen on-screen throughout the OVA (the "bronze" gunpods, triple-missile racks, etc), and doesn't have enough remaining weaponry to even fill up the existing hardpoints.

Yeesh Arcadia. :angry: It's one thing to buy a $300 -19 and get some extra weapons you don't want. It's another to charge $300 for a 0D and not include just 2 more single missiles to fill up the last hardpoints.

Hoping for a 0C or non-canon "neat-looking 0A" at this point, for a full weapons/ghost pack. (or, you know, an "anime-colored Shin with full weapons-pack" release of the 0D)

I'd think it would be an easy fix to just drill the holes out further. The peg isn't what holds the missiles on anyway, it's the hooked edges of the pylons, so it shouldn't have much of an effect on the missiles it comes with.

Has anyone tried the old v.1 VF-0 missiles to see if they fit better?

Fighter mode - anyone managed to get all the tabs around the lower leg to line up and latch? There are wing-to-leg, leg-to-backpack, leg-to-arms, and body-to-leg tabs. In my unit I found it impossible to fit all the tabs, and best to leave the backpack out of the tab puzzle if I want to keep the gun straight.

Sorry, but missiles that are top-of-the-line in 2040, are not going to look right in 2009. It'd be like putting AMRAAM's and laser-guided-smart-bombs on a P-51 Mustang. Especially since the VF-0's weaponry is already well-established. (and half of which wasn't included at all with the 0D release).

It needs some of these:

Make sure the legs are retracted all the way in. I had the same problem with tabs not lining up at first and it's kind of tough to judge if it won't go any further with everything being so tight.

What missiles does it use on screen? The only time I dimly remember it being armed up is when it lands on the beach when escorting the helicopter in episode... 3?

We know what the VF-0A/S carries and uses. If anything, the VF-0D has an even greater variety that it can use, being a two-seat delta-winged variant. The 0D can surely use everything the 0A can, if not more

Question for anybody who knows---is there any canon line-art etc, showing the VF-0D's hardpoints? Knowing Kawamori's like of the F-16XL, and the XL's reason for existence/hardpoint design--the 0D should likely "officially" actually have many many hardpoints, far more than Arcadia put on.

FYI, the F-16XL has no less than 27 hardpoints, compared to a normal F-16's 9 hardpoints. Cuz Delta wings allow for front-to-back loading:

For doubling the wing's size, the 0D should certainly gain more than just 1 hardpoint per wing vs the 0A/S.

It's a fictional toy airplane robot armed with fictional missiles, chief. Pretty sure I can put any missiles I want on there.

Please don't edit CollectionDX photos without giving proper credit.

You know, I came *this* close to giving it a credit byline. I was going to say "credit to veef"---but what exactly would be preferred? (And I did search a while for an alternative, but after 15 mins, gave up and swiped yours---has NO ONE else photographed the accessories? Was hoping I could find an official pic from Arcadia)

(would have preferred a pic of just that missile, then I could link back to your review and give you a few hits!)

Well i finally got mine.. Mine had a scratch out of the box, didnt even get a chance to tape :( The feet were not hard at all to pull out on my copy. Aside from the scratch im loving it! Gerwalk mode wins on this one.

i was going to joke you're going to put tamiya tape and wear white gloves. sucks, looks like the factory scraped it during testing.

What would be preferred is not to crop our logo out of the photo.

Oh yeah, I agree and i think she's light on missiles as well, I just wondered what was screen accurate. I mean earlier you were commeting on how the 19 came with a tonne that weren't, so I was going for a comparison

You know I just realised that there are several stickers missing that should be included. Right off the bat there are no nose numbers in one sheet, only pieces to make em up. also there are some vertical stripes on the tail missing.

Good thing I still have my old Zero sheets...
