Arcadia has arisen from the ashes of Yamato Toys! After much speculation as to if and when Arcadia would “resume” production of Macross Toys, the answer is within the pages of Figure King #184. Their 1st Macross toy will be the Macross 30th Anniversary 1/60 VF-1J Valkyrie. It sports a rather extensive paint scheme designed by famed artist Hidetaka Tenjin. Hasegawa is also releasing a 1/72 plastic model kit(fighter mode) with the same deco.
Arcadia’s new VF-1J toy is scheduled for release in August for 16,590 yen. We aren’t quite sure on this, but previous issues did mention “fun, new gimmicks”. Whether or not this 1/60 VF-1 features even more gimmicks than previous Yamato 1/60 VF-1 toys remains to be seen. Read on to check out the 1st image(courtesy of Cybergundam Blog) of Arcadia’s 30th anniversary VF-1J.
