    Apparently the Arcadia is gonna be as good or better with the re-release. If they fix the ankles.

    Since my little brother lived in Japan for 2 years, he still has good friends there. Instead of ordering import wanna let one of his friends buy it for me and send it with cheapest way possible as a gift. Canceled my previous order since it wasn't out anyway. You don't pay taxes for gifts right?

    can confirm the Arcadia is a fantastic figure except for the ankles. I had a brand new one and they were so loose out of the box the battroid mode would just topple over unless I had it positioned in a way where the wings could be used for additional support. That bugged me so much it made a few other issues seem more annoying as a result.

    it was pretty close to perfect IMO. If the reissue fixed those ankles, it’d be up there with their VF-0.

    Hmmm, my 19’s ankles are fine and it’s been displayed in Battroid forever now. still this will make me check them. I’ve always like the Arcadia more than the DX i know i sold my DX to someone here when i got rid of it.

    Yeah, that's what has me worried that even the reissue will have similar problems.

    Suddenly a ton of Hayate VF-31AX pre-orders were cancelled.

    Edit: Here's the image from Twitter for those who don't want to click on the link.

    Nah. They go together as far as fighting buddies. It's like you can't have one without the other... or maybe not but something like that. Lol.

    I'd really like to get Mirage's 31A, that looks great. But I also don't like Delta nearly enough to wade through the madness for her.

    Mirage colors look sweet

    But nothing beats the real world inspired deco of the plain Jane VF31A

    I already have a 31J and 31C so I’m not as into either of the 31AX revealed though I do really like the new head on Mirage. Here’s hoping of Delta 06

    If I didn't already have Mirage's 31C, this would be a no-brainer. But I do, so I really can't justify a bit different version. Might pick up a full-armor low-vis 31A if it ever comes out, that'd be different enough.

    (Mirage's 31AX is almost exactly in the middle of a 31A and 31C visually, would be a great "covers all the bases" option----but if you already have a 31C or 31A...)

    That's because the DX Chogokin Yf-19 already give you everything ;) , fastpacks, Missiles, fold boosters, arm cannon, pin point barriers punch effect parts. display stand /base, pilots, .

    you can even use the extra missiles for other valks :)

    Let’s see if the teased DX YF-21 does get made into fruition or it’s typical Bandai shenanigans as usual (like the GBP Armor for both TV Roy’s 1s/Max’s 1a, HMR N-Ger, Q-Rau, Phallanx, Tomahawk, Regult Scout, Figuarts Britai, and the rest of Walkure) and vapourware years later.

    Looks more red than the 31C's magenta in this photo. Looks real good, too. Hmm.
