Arcadia 1/60 VF-4A ‘Flashback 2012’ Premium Finish & Regular Release


Recommended Posts

Looks great Anasazi! Just waiting for the order info.

Any plans for the YF-19 now that the PF is priced way out of most people’s affordability?

This looks to be a decent print layout for the set. I can get several of them on a single sheet of decal paper.

Woohoo! They look fantastic!

Interesting idea. I just saw the ¥51,750 price tag for it on HLJ. That's nuts. These days I mainly create sets to correct injustices for collectors, like the missing and incorrect markings on the Bandai DX line, so I might have to expand that include making up the difference between regular and premium finishes for the Arcadia line.

Test print successful. Those slimelight-like markings in the lower right aren't as dark as they appear in the image. Not the best lighting right now.

Looking good. PM incoming for a sheet.

Oh goodie, because I was gonna ask for at least 3 or 4 sheets. :D

I hope one day we get a good quality Minmay FB2012 figure so I can replace the Arcadia 3D printed one.

Just opened my 4A PF. Looks real good. I wasn’t sure about the panel lining but it’s not as dark or noticeable as I’ve seen in pics. You never know until you get it in hand.

Definitely interested in a couple of those.

I've already received a few PMs about the set and will respond to those, along with putting together a list based on who has expressed interest via posts in this thread. Price per set will likely be $10 plus shipping, given that they are twice the size of the DX sets, but I need to run the numbers. Stay tuned.

Until @jenius gets his premium review online (hint hint), this can hold me over.

Make sure to enabled Closed Captioning, and then choose Translate to English. Such an awesome looking version.

 

Thanks for posting that Shawn, the video looks better than some of the promo pics. 

Would have loved to seen a side-by-side of two 4As (Premium and Regular) but this is still a nice comparison.

Good to know, I've been hesitant to ship mine from HLJ because I don't want to be disappointed.

Yeah I didn’t have high hopes for the PF. I was pleasantly surprised.

Sorry for the delayed response, everyone. Absolutely crazy week at work. Ran the numbers and sets will indeed be $10 each, plus shipping. I'll post something in the For Sale forum tonight and will also start responding to members who have already expressed interest.

I lucked out today. Got my VF-4A and the screw hole cover in front of the cockpit was missing. Somehow it was squeezed between the inner and outer clamshell so no ugly holes in my Valkyrie!! :drinks:

Yup. I think @Lolicon did a review of her.

Not terribly high-resolution 3D print, unsmoothed. It is in color though, so there is that.

Probably would have been cheaper to pay people in some 3rd world country to print resin castings, and would have looked better.

The Fighter mode of that looks great.  I'd consider getting one just based on that alone.

Yeah, I know some may cringe but I seriously never need to transform it! LOL I just love it like this.

Am I the first one to receive Anasazi's decals?   Just showed up a few mins ago.  :)

Awesome! USPS estimated that most of the domestic orders would be arriving today, but I think some folks might be waiting another day or two if they're waaaaaaay out east. :)

Sounds like mine arrived the same time as yours. Thanks Anasazi!
