Arcadia VF 0D Phoenix Prototype

Type-R of our sister site TFW2005 has posted a new scan from the latest issue of Dengeki Hobby showing the resin prototype for the Arcadia 1/60 VF-0D. Something that stuck out right away is the use of diecast metal for the arms. Some of you may remember that Yamato’s VF-0A/S releases prior to the VF-0S Ghost bundle/2010 stand-alone re-releases were prone to arm breakages.

Arcadia’s VF-0D is due out next year, price remains to be determined. For Macross Zero fans, Shin’s VF-0D has been a long time coming, read on to check out the prototype!

Arcadia YF 19 FAST Pack 08

Arcadia has released their official images for their upcoming 1/60 YF-19 with FAST Pack. This long awaited release aims to be the definitive YF-19 toy. Aside from the FAST pack, it comes with several missles shown in the VF Master Files VF-19 Excalibur book. The only things missing are the fold booster and arm missle launcher that Isamu used to take out a Monster Destroid practice target.

Arcadia’s YF-19 with FAST Pack is scheduled for release in April 2014, just a few months shy of the 20th anniversary of Macross Plus. The list price is 34,440 yen. However, save some money by pre-ordering it from our site sponsor Hobbylink Japan, for 29,520 yen!

Hobby Japan Arcadia YF 19 Scan

The latest issue of Hobby Japan includes some new images of Arcadia’s 1/60 YF-19 in full color! The images show the full set of weaponry to be included with the release as well as the FAST packs. Also shown are the opening split canopy, and wings swept back in fighter mode for high-speed mode. No specific release date nor price have been announced yet. Due to the sheer amount of weaponry the YF-19 will come with, it will not be cheap.

Arcadia VF 1S Roy Focker Special Movie Ver 01

Arcadia has revealed their next upcoming Macross release, the 1/60 VF-1S Roy Focker Special Movie Version. Yamato released the VF-1S Roy Focker Special Movie Version numerous times in the past, with the last(Macross 30th anniversary version) released last year bundled with Option Parts(side covers for battroid mode, as well as exposed ejection seat also for battroid mode). This upcoming release by Arcadia includes the Option Parts bundled with a new display stand. This is also reflected in price as this price is the higher than previous releases(17,640 yen). Fortunately, our site sponsor Hobbylink Japan has a pre-order up for 15,120 yen!

This is a great release for those of you who missed out on Yamato’s previous VF-1S Roy Focker Special offerings. Read on to check out the new images.

Arcadia YF 19 Prototype

Thanks to Type-R of our sister site the 2005 boards for providing scans from various recent Japanese hobby magazines showing the following:

These 2 releases are a testament to the popularity of Isamu Dyson. Thus far, no price or specific release date is listed for the YF-19, we just know it’s scheduled for release next year. As for price, Mr. K(formerly of Yamato, now working with Arcadia) has hinted that the YF-19 and future Arcadia Macross offerings may feature higher price points. Given that the YF-19 to begin with will come with FAST packs and a generous amount of external missles, it is a possibility that this may exceed the 29,600 yen price point of Yamato’s VF-17D w/FAST packs set.

Arcadia YF 19 Alpha One

Ever wonder what Arcadia has been cooking up for their upcoming 1/60 YF-19? According to some new scans(and alluded to from Arcadia’s Mr. K not too long ago), Arcadia will be including external missles for the YF-19! Previous YF-19 toys lack them. These missles may look familiar if you’ve perused the VF-19 Excalibur Master Files book. In addition, the missles have the ability to sweep back in fighter mode for high speed mode! The YF-19 was shown like this briefly during Isamu’s last dogfight with Guld in Macross Plus. Previously the only YF-19 product able to replicate this was the 1/144 diecast model by Doyusha!
