    I've ordered from them once and received it just fine, it was DX VF-1D. I'm not sure if anyone has reported NOT receiving something they ordered from them.

    I recommend you watch the video Slave IV posted below and follow the instructions, the coupon is worth your time/effort if you decide to order from them.

    Thanks, I sent them a screen shot last night, it ended up taking 1500 off so I just ended up ordering one. Figure it comes out in less than 6 months so worst case scenario I can still file a claim.

    Given that the earlier releases of it never really went super high in price I can't think of any reason this one would. There might have been a window where they sold for higher than MSRP, but only slightly.

    I think this idea that the reissue will have fixed ankles came from a picture that was posted on twitter by "Mr. K".

    https://twitter.com/Mrk_arcadia/status/1392621826409259008

    There is a YF-19 leg with the ankle extended on the desk. So from that picture it was assumed they were going to do something to the ankles. No actual announcement has ever been made about it.

    (There's also a fold booster in the picture, but their YF-19 release has not included one in the past and I don't think anyone was jumping to conclusions that one would be included now.)

    At any rate, last I saw it was delayed until November, so I guess we'll find out soon enough. Unless it's delayed again.

    Arcadia’s Nora 51 is also either delayed or put on hold @deruberhanyok as the intended release date was last month.

    I don't remember Arcadia announcing any official release-date for the SV-51 Nora.

    The SV-51 Ivanov re-issue was the only SV-51 that was announced and then got released last month or so.

    Don't tell me that you didn't see this at another Macross forum @treatment. You even posted Mr. K's twitter about Nora's molded exploded bits for her 51.

    I remember Nora’s being shown but i don’t think it’s actually gone up for order anywhere. Or did I miss it?

    no doubt it’s delayed but we didn’t have a date to start with.

    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.

    Looking forward to your thoughts after building one @Rewind
