Arcadia VF-1J Full Armor - January 2015


Recommended Posts

Not the greatest quality picture, but it's the 30AE VF-1J in GBP armor, with DYRL hands.

in that shot aside from the head you pretty much couldn't tell that there is a 30th AE Valk in under all that bulkiness! Nice shot of Valks Viiof!

That's cool. Head looks nice on it. ;)

Got mine today. Does anyone else have yellowed missile clusters on their GBP? On one of the leg units the top cluster is totally yellowed as if it were really old PVC, while the bottom cluster is fine. On another part there is one or two individual missiles that are yellowed while the rest are white. I'm not anal enough for it to really bother me, but I do find it really curious that brand new plastic would already be yellowed. Is it possible they used some leftover parts from the Yamato run? I'll post a photo later.

I'm just lucky that it doesn't bug me much because I got it from AmiAmi so there'd be no possibility of an exchange.

I'll just pretend the yellow ones are the dirty bombs. :ph34r:

Mine is fine, had to go check (from hlj)

It is slightly pink in the flesh though. Could be the lighting as it wasn't obvious by natural light.

Regardless i am very happy with it. Looks awesome on the top shelf of my detolf.

It doesn't look anywhere near as yellow at home as it did at work under the long fluorescent tube lights.

In the photo it's hardly noticeable at all. But the top cluster is 'yellowed' while the bottom one is bright white.

I also had to remove a 1cm sized spot of what appeared to be dried blood on one of the 1J's legs. Fun times. :lol:

Yeah.

I can't see the yellowing on 'em from the photo.

oh, and blood???

Was it really? I like to think simple overspray, but damn blood?

dafuq, Arcadia?!

I don't know what it was, I just said it looked like dried blood. Brownish red smear. I doubt it was overspray since there is no paint that color on the toy, and it wiped off more readily than paint would.

Whatever it was, it came off.

Received mine today. Showing my support for Arcadia.

Please re-release the VF-1D. It makes total sense now that 0D was released recently. I never got that one when it originally came out. (after all I am a low vis guy and bright orange high vis looks bad in my collection)

Hikaru's first valk in the tv series.

....And yes give us those damn side pieces as freebies. Thanks. :p

Yes for the VF-1D! But please, with the accurate canopy size!

that would be nice although I don't mind the canopy size that they originally came with.. Many of the 1D model kits look kinda goofy with the extended cockpit canopy.. Im not sure that anyone has ever actually got it 100% correct. And besides I doubt they would go about making a new mold just to correct that specifically and I don't think that many people would care anyways..

I wouldn't mind a second copy VF-1D myself, and yeah, I like the current canopy just the way it is.

Anyway, congrats on the VF-1J GBP purchases guys. I cancelled mine. Happy with my Yamato version.

Mine arrived today, and NY has terrible packaging when it comes to large shipments. 3 of them had visible dents and another 3 were crumpled at the sides. Only one of them is mine though. :p

Whoa!?!? 14! Hehe! Thats either a photoshopped image or you are just nuts! (Or obsessed) ;)

So which one is yours!? :p

Got mine in from NY today as well and in my case the individual valk was packaged extremely well. Never having seen a Yammie GBP in-person before, I was surprised at the size of this valk's packaging. As for the white, it's clearly a different shade from my Yamato VF-1S TV, but it does look nice and white in-person. I noticed (and was bothered by) the pink tinge on my Arcadia VF-1S immediately, but the VF-1J's white is looking good to me! :D

Quick and dirty shot of the Arcadia VF-1J with the Yamato VF-1S TV:

6 out of 14 , that's almost half. At least there's 8 mint ones to choose from.. ^_^

NY has a policy called "I got your money, so f!@# off"

broken or missing parts is not even compensated.

Haha good to know, they opted for the softest bubble wrap ever which i may use as a pillow for my puppy, and the quality of the shipping box causes me to think they are going green and using recycled cardboard, at my expense, what's one valk when you are saving the trees right?

It's an enterprising group order which NY recently foiled when they realized they were losing out on shipping profit. I'm probably stuck with the worst box.

Unfortunately, I don't get to choose the best.

Got mine, does anyone know NY's policy on dented boxes?

I sent them a ticket as well but I'm not hoping for much, especially when the contents are intact.

Finally! Got mine today. I might say my initial reaction on the white is... there is really a 'pink' hue to it. :lol: Though I'm a little bit disappointed since I was expecting that the ejected pilot seat is included based on their webpage product info. Oh well... :unsure:

Anyways, presenting... DUAL STRIKE ARMORED VALKYRIE.

Just so everyone knows... I don't know how to Photoshop. ;)

Whoa....beautiful overkill, if they had this idea in the anime I bet the armour would've had more screen time lol

I was disappointed about the ejected seat too, though gonna use the ejected seat from the 30th anniversary VF-1A for my armoured VF-1J. Aiming for a maintenance pose when we finally move into our new house >.<
