Whats next for Arcadia?


Recommended Posts

Has it ever been discussed why Arcadia has never come out with a Premium Finish 1/60 VF-1J Hikaru?  I almost wonder if they are going to be a special thing for 40th anniversary, or are they planning something for this year?  Does anyone know?  I would prefer it without fast packs, just like they show it in the animation.  If it is released without the fast packs, it might make it more attainable for us.

I don't know if there's a lot of demand, but I've mentioned wanting one of those several times, and actually, I do want the fast packs with it, because I want a fully printed set of TV fast packs that I don't have to sticker to get the kite on them.

That and a PF VT-1 are basically my last two desired PF releases.

Well, I guess you are right. If it comes with fast packs, I will still want it. I most desire the base Variable Fighter with all that printed on detail without having to spend for a rare, hard to find Bandai DX VF-1J Hikaru

While the weathering effect would be cool, the white of the recent release with GBP coupled with the black, tampo detail would really pop, IMHO.

It’s odd that the recent reissue GBP didn’thave a PF option. VF-0D style weathered finish on the armor parts would be sweet. 

Ohhh I'm down for a 0D-style PF reactive armor set. :shok:

Yeah, that would probably make me bite even though I so don’t need it. Really want the 0A in any finish.

Hahaha! :lol: I don't have the time on making a new one yet. But I do hope the old ones that I did are still appreciated. ;)

Is it just me or does Nora's bird look a little more matte and a shade lighter than the Yamato version? :unknw:

Need @David Hingtgen to chime in on whether the Arcadia color is accurate to the anime.

Arcadia's 51 Nora version is a shade lighter than the Yammie version @Mog. The Yammie is more of a crimson red (?) and the pre-orders for these version is a bit easier to order, however possibly 2.5x more than the regular DX.

Your call if you want one or not and it requires your kindey and 1/2 of your liver in the process. :girl_devil:

As much as I dig Ivanov's Anti-Pope ride, appreciate the Dobber SchemeTM, and liked the anime, I just never got into collecting the Zero crew.

Not sure I'd call the actual toy crimson red though (Maybe in the display/final production pics).  Toy itself seems to possibly be magenta, but definitely in the pink-purple range.

Will we have to pay extra for the correct right and left legs?

Praying that there are no issues with it. :lol:

You think that Yamacadia will smarten up after screwing up Ivanoff twice and a lull between two 51 projects, that should be the case right @Corrinald:crazy:

More of your enabling pics planned @Saburo:lol:

@Saburo's enabling pics led me to buy an Arcadia VF-0S...and then the Reactive Armor to go with it. Those pics are dangerous.

the nora looks even more matte than the yamato one.  as far as lighter...maybe.  could be the lighting in those photos.  i stopped following the sv-51 thread after a while.  aside from the feet/ankles were there any issues with that ivanov release?  are the wings likely to get floppy like the old yamatos?  (they really need a hard lock but doubt they did that).

If you don't want to navigate the SV-51 thread, just check out the review that @jenius posted. He does a good job highlighting the differences. Also, his video review of Arcadia's Ivanov release is included within.

Same price for Nora's 51 (like Ivanov's 51) at roughly 40k yen and hopefully none of the mismatched feet this time.  I'm guessing that the pre-orders for Nora's will be a couple of weeks later after the DX GBP orders have been dropped.

The black and gold trim ones?

Or is there another more colorful version I tried to erase from my memory?

Are you referring to the Anniversario for the 30th Anniversary as per @jenius' blog @Mog:blink:

Trying to jog my memory, so I could be completely wrong.

But before the black and gold trimmed versions were shown, I THINK Yamato showed off another prototype for the 25th Anni. color scheme.

It was universally panned on these boards.  

Again, I could be completely mis-remembering all this.  But it wasn’t anything I was interested in at the time.

EDIT:  @jenius saved pics for posterity:

The French and Swiss Armed variants colour scheme??  Wasn't also the 1/55 Chunky Monkey also done in the French colours as well if my memory is correct?
