Do you think there are actual chances that Arcadia will remake the SV-51s ?

The Yamato ones have reached insane prices on ebay, perhaps it's a sign that some desirability does exist...

Hard to say really. It was already mentioned before on the VF-0S thread that Mr.K of Arcadia expressed that he wants to revisit SV-51. But his reply mentioned IIRC is it depends on Arcadia since it's the company decision whether to make it or not. And also involves rights issues.

Don't only check eBay for Macross stuff. You can check Jungle. They have a few used SV-51 figures since some of the high priced items at eBay are used as well. Just saying.

As someone who owns an SV-51, I would love nothing more than the opportunity to chuck that thing in the garbage and replace it with something better. The SV-51 design is great and it's awesome to have something to pare with the VF-0's but the existing toy is just a dumpster fire.

that said, I think I want them to release a VF-0A who's legs don't fall off first. <_<:rolleyes:

Thanks for the link!

 

Also, I noticed that the Mass Production SV-51 is quite rare to come by... I guess Yamato "mass produced" very few of them XD

Anybody know when the VF-1S Hikaru Strike goes up for preorder?

I need/want this in my collection.  Was but a poor student during the Yamato days, and skipped the first standard Arcadia 1S releases expecting a bundle release to happen.

 

there's no rush, unlike Bandai it will not be sold out.  You will see it everywhere along with posting here and there.. the preorder last for over a month if not more

Not worried about grabbing a preorder when it opens up, I just have some CDJapan points I need to use up before they expire.

^ No. I'm thinking it will be a reissue of Hikaru's VF-1A. In normal and premium version. ^_^

 

They haven't done a VF-1A yet so I think that's a big reach.

Anybody fancy that the VF-1S Roy Premium will be next? LOL!

I'd buy it and sell my 1S Hikaru.

You know I was surprised that Arcadia didn't start the whole premium finish thing with Roy's 1S... 

But whatever Valkyrie is next after Hikaru's 1S, I would like to see Arcadia release Max and/or Milia's 1J this year too. That would be a nice change of pace, methinks.

I'd go for a premium finish 19 over a weathering version. 

that is a bloody brilliant idea! the Arcaida YF-19 was a rather bland affair when it came to tampo details so this would be hugely welcome in my book! 

I have thought of getting a second one for quite a while so that would be perfect!

There's already a premium finish -19. Bandai makes it :p

speaking of, maybe bandai will give us a DX VF-22 based on the one that showed up in delta. :lol:

Actually, Arcadia is not charging $100 more. It's more like $50-55 price difference based on their MSRP for each release. Y21600 for the regular release and Y27864. It's just so happen that Nippon-Yasan is offering a big discount on the regular release PO whereas they charge Y1000+/- more for the Premium Finish. 

I understand the frustration there since we can only get the Premium Finish from Nippon-Yasan only. Unless you have friends, families, or relatives who lives in Japan who can get it for you. We can say all we want too. Love Arcadia. Hate Arcadia. Blame this or blame that. But that's how it is. :(
