Bandai 1/72nd scale Perfect Transformation VF-1 Model Kit Details Revealed
Bandai has revealed some juicy details about their upcoming VF-1 Valkyrie model kit. As the first modern transforming plastic kit of this venerable design, Bandai sought to go all the way and incorporate the VF-1's quirky leg delivery system into their product. There's no obvious swing bars here like on the toys. Now there are individual panels that literally move the legs down to the nosecone and then detach from the thighs to return to the chest. It's a detail that has been with the design since its creation but this is the first time it has been attempted on a mass-produced figure.
Bandai also showed off preliminary designs for the Super and Strike parts and also the underwing missiles.
The VF-1 Valkyrie kit is priced at 4,725 yen and is set to be released in June, 2013.
The Super and Strike parts are priced at 2,100 yen and are also coming out the same month.
