Bluefin Tamashii has given us information about the stateside release:
The Battleship Arcadia is taking off on an adventure, not into deep space, but into your home! From Galaxy Express 999, Soul of Chogokin welcomes Captain Harlock’s Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia to its line-up. Complete supervision of the design was carried out by original author Matsumoto Reiji and Toei Animation. Strategic parts are made with die-cast for added authenticity. In further pursuit of Arcadia’s perfect form, extreme attention is paid to the original mechanical design of Miyatake Kazuki’s skull mark on the hull and bow. Use the included remote to control light and sound (background music x3, sound effects x5). Arcadia even makes the sounds of an engine starting when turned on. Set comes with display stand, Galaxy Express mini figure and mini stand. Coming November 2014 for $275.99.
You can preorder the Arcadia at Big Bad Toy Store.
