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

FINALLY!!! just got my pre-order in at AmiAmi for three of em! 2 for me and 1 for my son. Gee aren't I great dad!! ;):p:DB))

Wow! You are an awesome dad! You looking to adopt an older "child"? If so, I am available. I am educated, I can dust all the toy as part of my daily chores and take pictures. :lol:

Unfortunately I know you're right... but its MW, I can bitch & complain can't I?! It really bugs me, can't they just include water slide decals as well - how much more would it really costs them to include that? AND what's with providing stand adapters to stands that they never include nor can we actually buy anywhere in stock? They're just laughing at us sayin' haha you can never use these adapters.

I just don't get why everyone hates Bandai, for 1/3 the price they tampo print EVERYTHING and include a stand.

You lucky U.S. people... you just don't understand the woes of paying an extra $40-50 per toy every time to the government that actively tries to prevent things you want from entering the country just because it doesn't have French on the label.

I am not an expert model builder, but I prefer waterslides too. They look much nicer, there is a bit more time you have to get just the right placement if they could only provide them as an optional ordered item, like Bandai does with the Gunpla. As for stands I wish they would include them, because if it wasn't for the Chaotic Yeti, my display would be all the Bandai Valks were flying, and all of the Yamato/Arcadia Valks would be on the ground parked.

Ordered (X) of them from HLJ. B))

You ordered 10!? YES!!! ;)

Ha, ha, ha! No way could, or would I order 10 of them.

Think (X) in algebraic terms and not Roman Numerals - it's currently an unknown variable. :ph34r:

-b.

Haha! I knew you didn't but I just wanted to think that you did. :)

So, does anyone know how much tampo printing this release will have?

Also, preordered on AmiAmi. Has anyone had issues with them that I should be concerned?

With the YF-19 release a couple of MW members had issues with Ami Ami when their Valk arrived damaged still in box.

NY have the lowest price, but their S&H fee is absurd, even for SAL none register is almost $50. I guess it worked out to the same as other sites, because there’s paypal fee. NY does not have paypal fee on items that are not in stock. I don’t order a lot of stuff from HLJ like most do, so I can’t save on S&H there.

They aren't stupid. They put their price lower to encourage impulse buyers (a lot of toy collectors are impulsive) then hit you with higher shipping.

They only way to save is to combine shipping and be patient :D

Damn near everything I have on pre-order is an impulse buy.

Sigh

*edit*

Well now that you've said it I'm going to imagine how awesome it'd be if I (or anyone for that matter) could swing 10 and then post pics of that epic purchase. :ph34r: / ;)

Oh my God did they ever try to swindle me out of paying me back for my damaged 19. If you want someone who won't try to bone you go with HLJ.

Wanted one of these to continue my 2-seater valk streak, but this price is just too insane for my budget. I'll just keep on the lookout for the inevitable "I bought 'x' amount of these valks!!" folks fire selling their multiples in the BST thread once wives start finding out how much these things cost. lol

I would have to see both next to each other to decide. If they were both visually identical....I'd probably pass. I'd rather have something entirely new from Arcadia. Like a TV SDF-1!!! ;)

So if the visual differences were like those between a 1/60 Yamato YF-19 and an Arcadia YF-19.....yes, I'd buy an Arcadia VF-0A and S. If the differences were internal and not readily visible when displayed next to each other...then I most likely would not buy Arcadia versions.

I pre-orderd mine from AmiAmi. Atleast they bubble wrap and take care of the item before they ship it. HLJ just throws the items in the box with a few air bubbles things. Also HLJs prices are always higher than Ami Ami and hobby search.

I'm glad I'm not the only one feel this way about HLJ. I guess it's just my bad luck with HLJ.

Assuming this has improved mechanics with some diecast joints, would you buy 0A/S again if they release it?

I will buy them again.

I do believe that this is not entirely a new mold. They improved the arm, knees and feet joints. The legs landing gear doors are also different but everything else is the same. It has the same seams as the VF-0S/A.

It's not the damage that occurs after leaving the retailer that should concern folks when dealing with overseas retailers (insurance covers you for that).....it's the damage to the item present right out of the factory and the online retailer's policies about helping (OR NOT) their customers outside Japan that should be thoroughly researched.... :rolleyes:

haha! Sorry Saburo no adoption gonna happen! Supporting a teenage son is proving a big a challenge as it is! But I appreciate the offer of daily toy dusting though, but sadly still gonna have to let this one pass.. ;)

Ha, ha, ha! No way could, or would I order 10 of them.

I was gonna say 10!?!? not even I would have displayed that level of lunacy! hehe! :p

I have purchase a good amount of stuff from AmiAmi in the past never with any drama, these 3x VF-0D will be the biggest single order I would have got through them but I doubt there will be any trouble.. I'd sayy go for it and give em a try! I'll be getting the 4th from Nippon Yasan. B))
