    Hey guys, I've reached this thread by googling... does anyone knows if this thing is still done and when it will be done?

    Hey guys, I'm still alive! Got my order in with Big in Japan, and had my proxy order more for my store if people miss out.

    It can be both(both heads are included) but the only pilot figure shown is Hikaru.

    Post-1987 means post-DYRL/FB2012 stuff.

    MII and up.

    Wonder if Arcadia will resurrect the old Yamato-USA franchise for their M+, M7 and M0 valks local distro...

    I get that part as it pertains to series but was wondering if it covered modern toys based on series prior to 1987

    Probably my favorite aspect of the DX VF-1 is that, because the larger scale allows for articulated hands (and they are obviously bigger) you can do stuff like this:

    if it weren’t for the two-part swing bar I’d probably call it my favorite, but as it is I’m about even between it and the Arcadia.

    I was pretty happy to see that the Hikaru’s VF-1S colors lined up so well with the YF-29 and VF-31F. Makes for a cohesive “hero Valkyries from the movies” setup.

    (Also! I've been looking for that stand adapter on and off for a couple weeks now and it turns out it was right in front of my face this whole time. I just couldn't see it because of the normal angle I have looking at that shelf from my desk.)

    I had originally thought because FB2012 contained, or more accurately is made of 95%, SDF, DYRL content, that it would still be under HG’s purview, content and any merchandise.
    But with today’s YouTube release of Flashback, I’m betting there’s more loopholes than are obvious as far as how deep this deal goes. I’m getting very hungry for more surprises... content, music, toys/merchandise. Exciting times.

    Having the stand alone GBP would be pretty sweet, since I have the Valk(s) already, but I also don't want to deal with the madness. I may have also missed the madness already? lol. Bandai stuff is real nice, but it's exhausting to bother with. At least if I want an Arcadia product I usually have weeks, or months, or even longer to make that determination.

    The DX GBP has been sold out on (if not) on TWE suppliers, so you don't have to worry about that @Juraash, however when it shows up on secondary stores (Jungle, Amiami and Manda) a few days/weeks after re-lease date in September then you have to kick it up as it goes fairly quickly.

    The upcoming Arcadia Nora 51 (to be out in August if I'm correct) is really going to kick you even harder as it will cost you close to 40k yen. This upcoming DX 1J and GBP set pre-order drop will cost you 33k yen (30k yen not including the Japan 10% tax) on late night 27th/early morning of the 28th depending on where you are.

    The price on the SV-51 kills me. I love the design and the colors on it, and I'd happily get one at, say, $300 (given the size of the thing it's a "reasonable price" for Macross), but... wallet yikes.

    Ditto for me too. Right now I'm hoping I'll be able to find it on Amazon so I can use gift cards.

    IN other news, just got my YF-29. This thing is glorious. I have now unfortunately opened a Pandora's Box, and the accompanying black hole to my wallet.
