Hi, I'm considering getting mi first macross toy and wanted some advice. Recently a friend has offered me a Yamato Yf-19 (first version) for 90 eur shipping included. I just wanted to ask if it is really wort it for that price. Semms that that design has been surpased by Arcadia and Bandai, but the price of those is more than prohibitive. I halso have heard good things about the hi metal series, but its prize has also been getting higher with the years.  

This seems like the best opportunity to get a transformable Yf 19 for a good price. 

Tell me your opinnion.

It's a great toy for the price. It won't be quite as well proportioned and it may be a little loose in the joints. But mine is holding up quite well. I think it's a good entry level Macross toy.

Not ready to drop 280 or more on that one, however, it's a beauty. 

Wait....you did not mention the scale of the Yamato YF-19 being offered....the first version Yamato released was a 1/72...if that is the one being offered to you at 90 euros, then that is not a good friend...LOL

Good point!!! It is the 1/60 one, always avoided the 1/72 one as the reviews are quite poor.

Just ask your friend if is a first release. If it is open ask him to check the the biceps.

On the first run of the biceps just exploded for no reason and to make the things worse you only noticed it when handled the toy just to find the arms to be loose as hell. (A part that slide over the biceps during transformation hide this issue)

There is the listing for the releases.

After the original release there are 2 more.

You can identify the release by the box art.
