I'm angry

I'm angry because none of my hobby shop in my country seems care to import these things. I want them badly! So bad that I bought the smaller trading figures to fulfill my thirst. These things are so beautiful.

this line in general was

this line in general was very popular in japan.

it sold out very fast on HLJ.com

they were available as crane prizes in machines in Japan.

The other large-scale version of this ship was $150, diecast, and is a little difficult to get ahold of sometimes.

All of these combine together to make getting ahold of one a little tricky.

try ebay- I got a great deal on the GE999 Train by being patient and waiting several months only a couple dollars over original retail price, shipped. so they are out there- you just have to be patient and look.

and those mechanical collections are really, really cool. Well worth getting for those who like Harlock, but not enough to have half a shelf dedicated to the character.

Welcome back!

Good to see you back, Shogundan!

And now that I'm back from vacation, I should get on the ball with some reviews, huh? ;)

No matter what, green Arcadia is always a great looking ship

Even though this one has omitted a few tiny paint applications, it is still a great looking model.

When Bandai decided to make the first Captain Harlock movie, Arcadia of My Youth , they requested a 100% redesign of the ship. Leiji Matsumoto really redeemed himself this time. Unlike the first blue colored Arcadia, this green one has heart and soul.

In my opinion, this maybe the best starship design of all time, along with Space Battleship Yamato.

Lots more great pictures:

Arcadia (Galaxy Express 999 - movie version)

I bought this toy from Yahoo Japan via a middleman. The toy is a masterpiece. When considering the amount of anime-accurate detail and the incredibly cheap price, I prefer this to its diecast or plastic model counterparts. A must-have for Leiji Matsumoto-sensei fans.
