Personally, I'm still holding out hope for a ghost booster bundle of the 0A or 0S (they do have those adapters, after all).  But I've been waiting for... a long time.

I've got Yamato Ghost's on mine. They don't fit perfect, but they fit enough......as long as you're not swooshing.:D

People have been speculating because the VF-0 is a "Roy" version that they can't release the HMR version here.  I wonder, because there's nothing tying the design to the original series, if they would get away with releasing the SV-51's and the other 0D's and 0A's because they don't have any of those markings or name associations?  Unless the Kite holds up the 0's.

Arcadia should simply shock the world an announce a 1/3000 TV SDF-1 (standard & PF versions), the sales from that would keep them in business for a long time. 

Wishful thinking for now though. 

Yes please!!!!

Whoa?? Does this suggest that perhaps Arcadia might NOT be able to produce/develop/release more Macross toys in the future??

😮 😮 😮

No, the full conversation is that the license between Arcadia and Big West is solely for Japan release only.  I bothered pressing them on it.

Hmm...and at the same time bandai is teasing a macross zero HMR vf-0 for worldwide distribution perhaps? 
Naaah.. probably a coincidence..

More likely that Bandai is a bigger company, and was able to get their license agreement re-written for international distribution in a shorter timeframe. Arcadia is much smaller, and Big West frankly isn't going to spend nearly as much effort dealing with them.

Sad. But, on the flip side, only when Macross zero valks/merch are actually available worldwide, will I believe it. 
Proof in the macross pudding..

I don’t recall seeing otherwise but the HMR is Japan only last I saw.

Its conflicting at the moment, as the live presentation mentioned all items including the HMR was for worldwide distribution.
Hence my reluctance to say that macross zero is indeed a worldwide distribution.

But to have Arcadia asking for licensing updates from BW, at the same time bandai is now on macross zero, well smells like BW might be thinking to re-price license costs.
Watching what happens. Could be purely co-incidental and just be a administrative delay. May never know, as well.

All licenses are probably being renewed, one at a time, since the resolution of the HG drama and the upcoming new media. All Bandai lines, including HMR, will become a blend of WWM releases and domestic only. DX VF-1, domestic only. DX YF-19 WWM, etc. Arcadia will probably go through the process, prices may change a bit, but the big change to their agreement will be that sales anywhere will incur the licensing fee where the language previously said sales were restricted to domestic distributors and any international efforts were ground for revoking the license. Since Bandai is the big money maker, Arcadia will have to wait until everything is settled with them.
