I have the bandai releases but I don't have any of the Arcadia/Yamato 19s so I'm going to grab this one.

I don't know if I would splurge for it if I had any of the previous Arcadia/Yamato releases.

I'm going to wait and see if any webshops decide to carry the PF version before I make a proxy purchase. I've been burned now by using proxies on two Arcadia website exclusives just to end up paying more than I would have had waited for webshops to carry them.

Was the 1st Arcadia YF-19 (non PF) this expensive? I feel like the price tag went way up on this one.

According to Anymoon, original MSRP is listed at ¥32,800. So pretty much the same price.

I do know it went on discount, and I bought mine marked down a bit (¥22,960).

Thanks @Sanity is Optional, that explains why I keep seeing it for way less online. While it's way past my budget I am very curious to see what their PF Version will look like. Wonder if Arcadia will go the VF-0D route?

I'm not sure if Mr.K is referring to the YF-19's weathering version on his latest tweet:

 

Google Translate:
"Unfortunately, weathering painting cannot be achieved, but please consider it. Thank you."

So not the "weathered" version.....was sort of hoping it would be.....maybe it was a PITA to have done the VF-0D "weathered" so they are steering away of another one for now.....guess I'll be saving some money on this "PF" release....:rolleyes:

"Please consider it?"  Japanese is a poor language to begin with, but Google is particularly bad at translating it. <_<

It's more like "I'm afraid the weathering wasn't possible.  Thank you for your understanding."

 

Machine translation may yet become a reality, but for now it's still a pipe dream... :rolleyes:

I'm sensing a shelf-warmer. Hopefully the wings will stay in place on this one.

Yeah, that's not happening without a redesign of the mechanism... which technically exists, if you don't mind sacrificing high-speed mode, and doing some disassembly and parts swapping.  I'm not sure if the parts are available right now though, I'm going to have to see if they can still be ordered.

I'm fine with no weathering at least, but my wallet is still going to be jumpy until we know for sure whether a normal PF will happen. :ph34r:

And yet....it pretty much assisted any non-Japanese reader understand that there would be no "weathering" version released this time around...seriously, it's not like we are requiring Google to translate some legal document or medical terminology critical to a life or death decision....:rolleyes:

Google Translate keep getting better all the time! :good:

The weathering really only made sense on the 0D anyway.  It literally is supposed to look like it's been exposed to sea spray.  None of the other Valks from any series have that same look.  Panel lining and tampo are fine.

 

Man, I don't know.  The FromJapan shipping price was ludicrous.  Is there anyplace actually cheaper anymore though?

Might be able to get one through Anime Export, but don't know how their price will be, and not sure if their new options to pay later would apply.  I wouldn't mind waiting until September to pay for this one, if I can. :lol:

It does look like they're going forward with the whole panel lining deal again, but I only now realized just how few panel lines the Arcadia YF-19 even has to fill in, so it doesn't really stick out like it did on the VF-4.

Sometimes. For instance they sold the VF-0D, SDF-1,  and the VF-4 is up now (though it wasn't available for pre-order).

On their twitter I only saw them advertise the regular version of the re-release.

Finally! Been waiting for a pf yf-19 to get the intake warnings tampooed. Though it should've been on the regular release to begin with.

That's a good point, but a high price to pay for those intake warnings.

I may end up going for it. :lol:

I wonder if Arcadia fixed issues with the Yamato one on this release and not just some panel lining and more tampo....

The Arcadia YF-19 is a completely new mold compared to the Yamato YF-19, just like the Arcadia VF-0.

When I think of weathering on the YF-19....I think of how it would have looked after brawling with the YF-21.....

The PF price.. is just hard to justify, not only just against Bandai’s, but against their own, normal version that’s been sitting below MSRP for some time now.

Normal release circa 20k yen on secondary market, vs PF at more than double the price...
