Hi, Everyone!

This is for any and all Captain Harlock fans out there...

Back in 2012, Hasegawa - under their Creator Works line - released a 1:1500 Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia model kit (kit number CW05) as it appeared in the 1979 first Galaxy Express 999 anime film.

Then in 2014, Hasegawa released a 1:1500 Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia Second Ship (Phantom Death Shadow conversion) kit (kit number CW08) as it appeared in the 1978 Space Pirate Captain Harlock anime TV series.  This model came with two tiny Cosmo Wing fighter crafts.

Now scheduled for November 2017, Hasegawa will release a 1:1500 Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia Second Ship model kit (kit number 64756) based on how it appeared in the 1977 Space Pirate Captain Harlock manga (Japanese comic) series.  This latest version will come with two small Space Wolf SW-190 fighter craft.

For now, Hasegawa hasn't released much to give modelers a peek at what's coming beyond the illustration that will be used for the box and two parts images.  Check out the pictures below.

Stay tuned for more on this one...

:)

The Death Shadow is the blue one. I'd like to get the green anime Arcadia ship sometime. It looks like it has clear parts so that lighting could be possible, even. I love the back side with the old-style ship windows.

Hi, Everyone!

Hasegawa was at Osaka Hobby Fes 2017 (http://osaka.hobbyfes.com/) which happened on 11/3/17 and they showed off a build-up of their upcoming 1:1500 Space Pirate Battleship Arcadia Second Ship model kit (kit number 64756).  This particular version of the model is based on how the ship appeared in the 1977 Space Pirate Captain Harlock manga (Japanese comic) series.

This latest version will come with two small Space Wolf SW-190 fighter craft.  The kit will have 147 pieces and is 12.3-inches (313 mm) long.

Check below for a picture from the hobby show and a few officially released images.

The kit is scheduled for a 11/30/17 release.  Pre-orders from Hobby Link Japan (https://hlj.com/product/HSG64756), Hobby Search (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10486756), Plaza Japan (https://www.plazajapan.com/4967834647565/), and some Western retailers (Omni Models, Tower Hobbies) are up now.

Stay tuned...

:)

Nice. There is a recycle shop I've visited a few times in Nagano Prefecture where they have the Galaxy Express 999 version of the Arcadia. From what I can tell, the windows are cast in clear yellow, so it could be very possible to light this kit. It's 3800 yen, which might not be bad, considering this is OOP.
