Sadly, the pics on Arcadia's PF product page clearly show a grey gunpod.

Yup yup. Get a PF and repaint the old Gunpod you have. ;)

You beat me to it. Looks like they are offering just about every Macross item they have made. The question is how limited is their stock of each item.

Last time this sale came around everything was gone in an instant.  I need to pickup a Hikaru VF-1S PF but I'm not counting on it.

is this like a "hey we found this in our warehouse, so lets sell it" thing? 

i'm starting to lose hope on getting a reissue of the VT-1 super ostrich.  FWIW i would also buy angel birds, or another low viz roy or new low viz/stealth scheme too.  Its hard to believe we've been collecting this SAME exact toy (well aside from "V2.1 and V2.2" or whatever jenius calls them upgrades) for ~13 years now (released in 2008 if memory serves) and a lot of us are still looking for a particular deco.  lol.

I think with this sale, they're just off-loading what they have in stock or probably stocks that wasn't sold on regular retail stores and got returned to their warehouse or some sorts.

And as much as I like what Arcadia produces when it comes to Macross, them as a small company compared to Bandai, I think they're just stuck with what they have.

Wish they wouldn't post the whole article as an image, so the text could be auto-translated. :p 

I think the only three PF items I'd be interested in either don't exist, or haven't been released.  Obviously the PF YF-19 is coming this fall, but all I've wanted for a long time is to see a PF Hikaru Super VF-1J, and a PF VT-1.

Close to zero percent. There's only been one production run so unless Arcadia handled these for some reason, they're the same crapshoot as all the other ones that have been sold.

That’s what I was thinking because I’d definitely try to get one if it was guaranteed to be fixed...

...but this is most likely the case considering there was some 0A stock HLJ had fairly recently that was the same crapshoot as before.

【Notice】 Regarding the "Kuradashi sale" to be held tomorrow, "Reactive Armor KIT" is on sale at half price, and "VF-0S Phoenix" and "VF-0S Phoenix Premium Finish" come with "Reactive Armor KIT" as a privilege! Thank you for taking this opportunity!

Looks like they're going to be putting the VF-0 armor kit on sale, or giving it out as freebies with any VF-0S purchase.

Pardon my ignorance, but how does one living in the US order from this Arcadia sale?  Do they ship direct? 

You have to either use a proxy, or get a Japanese forwarding address.

Ive had something from them shipped through a Tenso address before without issue.

Just for my VF-4 PF that way. I won’t be up at 3AM fire this though.

Base on their previous sale they do not have much of each, so some items get sold out super fast.

Most proxy stores close at 1800 JST, or work with very limited staffing after (working from home? maybe?

So if you use a proxy , it will all depend if they were able to purchase your item for you before it gets sold out.

 

If you really need something , it might be best setup a Tenso account.   Then put that Japanese address in your Arcadia account .

Then you can place your own order just like any other store or site,. .......................at 1900 JST^_^

The site went live at exactly 1900 JST:

They indeed sold out of some stuff FAST. By the time I finished the purchase of an SF-3A Lancer II, the regular versions of the VF-0A and VF-0S were gone. In the time that it took me to write this post, the Lancer sold out, too.

Going back to bed now....

Jeez even the expensive stuff sold out quickly. They must not have had much stock of anything. Why bother with a week long sale?

Was thinking about a PF SDF-1 if they held on for a minute. The flip side is I didn't spend any money yay!

Didn't even try. When I read that this would be like (or worse) than a Bandai PO night I proactively gave up. :lol:

I managed to snag an SF-3A Lancer II during the opening minute of the event. Theoretically. The transaction went through and I have an email notification saying the same thing, but I won't believe it until it ships to my Tenso address. Their ordering system was a bit weird. Even though I had a credit card on file, I had to re-enter all of the information. And there was a dropdown menu asking for the specific date when I wanted the item delivered, which I ignored in the interest of time, and ignoring it didn't stop my order from going through. I'd never seen a menu like that before and I didn't want to stop and look at a calendar. Maybe that decision will cause them to cancel my order. I hope not.

Not bad.. for a 'warehouse sale', they priced the stock at MSRP and pretty much almost everything is sold out. A far cry from Yamato days..

Yeah, things went fast.  I was able to get a VF-0D Premium Finish, which was my priority.  Was hoping to go back to get a standard VF-0S too if there were any left after I secured the 0D, but they were already gone.  Probably should have secured the VF-0S first since the 0D was available for a while afterwards...

I'm somewhat nervously waiting to see what Arcadia does with my order for the Lancer. It's my first time ordering directly from them. Did they charge you any additional fees, like for shipping? My order confirmation looks like this (auto-translated):

image.thumb.png.61ab154f3d1f40f0f4f05e2cada8c177.png

I'm shipping to my Tenso address, which should work, but they only charged me for the Lancer. They do have a FAQ section on their site, but it doesn't talk about shipping fees, just the method:

Quote

Q: I would like to change the delivery date of the product.

A: When the purchase procedure is completed, an automatic order confirmation email will be sent to you.
There is information about specifying the delivery date in that email, so please specify according to your wishes.
We cannot accept specifications that are more than one week ahead of the shipping date you contacted.
Also, please note that we may not be able to meet your request depending on the delivery company.
[Caution] Products on sale will be shipped at 9 am on weekdays except Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.
(We will inform you on the website separately during the year-end and New Year holidays, summer, GW and other long vacations).
Therefore, please note that even if you have been notified of a change in the delivery date, the product may be
shipped due to a miscommunication.

Q: Please tell me the delivery company

A: It will be a post office (Yu-Pack).

I guess we'll see what happens next week. :unknw:
