So pretty

That is such a beautiful toy - not just worth the price, but worth the wait as well. Two questions:
Is this the first fully new-tooled product from Arcadia?
Also, what is the fiction connecting Shin to this model and color scheme?

Arcadia answers

The first wholly new Arcadia Valkyrie was their YF-19 with FAST Packs that Ben reviewed.

Shin's connection with this Valkyrie is he's the main character in Macross Zero so they assigned the one uniquely colored VF-0D to him. The rest had gray in place of blue.

D'oh

I was afraid you'd say that. Guess I really need to go watch Zero again. I only remember the swing-wing VF-0's appearing in it.

Zeroes

Shin does go through a number of VF-0's over the course of the story but he's mostly associated with the blue D type.

I fail

Man, I just need to turn in my Macross card. I've seen Zero twice (though not recently), and I honestly never picked up on the fact that there was more than one configuration of VF-0 involved. All the time this toy has been in development, I just assumed it came from one of the games or other media.

Time to go watch Zero again... but I am hitting fast forward every time Sara is on screen.

This review reminds me, I

This review reminds me, I still need to see Macross Zero even though I HATE 3D CG mecha mixed with 2D characters.
