Arnval and Strarf MK 2 Repaints

Postby Hylian Pirate » Fri Oct 22, 2010 12:50 am

We knew this was coming. Here's another chance, folks! Source is 4chan, so take with a grain of salt until we learn more.

I kinda like these moreso than past Arnval and Strarf repaints. The stark black and white with red accents has almost an Asuka vibe to it. And Arnval Mk 2 heavily reminds me of my favorite Seeker, Skywarp. If they aren't too crazy to get a hold of I might actually pick these up. And by "not too crazy" I mean "Amiami gets them as normal releases with a 30% discount." (Not likely.)

Making edits as I go, by the way. Oh, snap! Strarf gets a new gun and Arnval gets a new... uh... sword? I think? It's not a laser sword this time...

For that matter, is it just me or does Arnval have new wing pieces... WING PIECES! I AM HAPPY AND RAGEFUL ALL AT THE SAME TIME! Really? they give the repaint bigger wings? I've got $10 that says we get these in standard colors again as Arnval Mk 2 Tranche 2 and Strarf Mk.2 bis... and I'd buy them both and sell the ones I have now... :*( Could be a new headstock for Strarf, too.

MOD EDIT: Putting in known, official info on the front page.

Threads merged and stickied.

I like... both. Way more than the original MkIIs, actually.

for arnval.it's already the MKIII since they merged the tranche2 and the MKII set-ups..same for strarf so we can't really call them repaints..or I bet konami just gave some tranche2/bis parts to the MKIIs...

though for heaven's sake. why didn't they changed the ride modes!!! they want me to make my own again? sure thing..and I think they'll be in set again like the first..-_- if not then good.

I hope these are easier to get a hold of, I really dig Arnval and Strarf's pretty cool. If I can get these, I'll only get the Strarf. I still hope the original Mk2s get a bigger release sooner or later.

Good news!

Repaint Arnval&Strarf Mk-II are retail release. Hobby stock already started pre-order on them for 6,248yen each. They aren't cheap, but still better than buying the limited version for over 20,000yen. Pre-order for them on AmiAmi should be up tomorrow or the day after.

...Well, at least it's going to be a general release this time. Not enough changes for me to pick up, although I do like the color patterns.

New parts look to be a new set of head gear and shotgun for Strarf. New wings and gunblade for Arnval. With the tie, Strarf looks even more like what'shername from Valkyria Chronicles. Arnval...she DOES look a lot like Skywarp.
