    Not posted on Arcadia’s website either as I went on it. The Re-issue 19 and the PF 19 has been posted for release at a later date.

    There is no release-date announcement for Nora.

    Only PR events shots.

    Shame really, don't feel like having a diy YF-19 if the ankles aren't fixed.

    Not sure yet, I took a brief peek at the contents and it seems like decent plastic. I’ll try to get at least one of them built tonight. I never handled one of the originals so I wont be able to compare.

    I didn’t know much about them until recently, let us know how the build goes! Wonder if the samurai ones will be rereleased.

    Really? That makes them even more interesting to me now.

    Looking forward to your thoughts after building one @Rewind

    VF-11b for me and the Armour add on set. :D  Possibly Mylene's VF-11MAXL as well.

    I'd really love for them to release a VF-11B.

    Also, you know since you just bought Max's VF-22S they'll reissue that one.

    That fire Valkyrie set they released was really nice. And crazy expensive. A reissue would probably sell well, even without the sound booster (as the tweet seems to indicate might be a factor in production cost).

    I don’t know where I’d put one but I’d probably sell stuff to make room.

    That YF-21/VF-22 is going to be tougher to be honest @betsuni as I’ll leave that with Bandai as they teased the DX YF-21 Omega One.

    Will be looking forward when the DX YF-21 does get released.

    Its a simple fun build. I got a couple of them around 30 years ago at my local supermarket where I also get my transformers kits.. not the ones at toys stores but the one that you have to build yourself and it comes with a pack of gum.. Those were my transformers back then. :) ..it were nice kits too. , it's too bad my Parents gave them away to my cousins.

    Back to these Bandai kits. IIRC the parts looks the same but because they have 4 kits in this package they did not mold the GBP parts in blue this time .. it just share the came color as the Strike parts. :( .

    You can panel line them with a pencil to give it a bit more detail... :)

    Noob asking for info. I just got this from Jp preowned. Want to know if her scale is compatible to Bandai HMR Vfs. Iirc the latter are 1/100. Any help greatly appreciated.

    They are close enough for it to work. Had that one and a couple of the pixie squad generics with my HMRs before I climbed out of that rabbit hole. :)

    They're not that scale compatible. The RD is way too small for the HM-R scale.

    In order for the RD Q-Rare to scale properly, it has to be at least close to the HM-R Regult sizing.
