Goodbye money...

This is the VF-25 I've been waiting for. I need to preorder is from SOMEWHERE asap!

I hope the gun color is just a trick of the light, thought that weapon always did have a purple-gray color.

Now, out of idle curiosity, what don't you like about the VF-25's? I admit that I prefer the 19's and my favorite is the 17, but the 25 always struck me as an appropriate 'super sleek' update to the valkyrie concept.

I've been asked so many times

I've been asked so many times not to vent about my opinions of Zero / 7 / Frontier mecha in CDX reviews that I'm afraid of getting my post deleted again... >.>;

Bah!

I wish the private messageing functions on this site worked... I LIKE your rants from the videos and discussing tastes and opinions of Mecha is a must for me when I can. Still, I respect your desire not to irk the Admins.

The good thing is that this

The good thing is that this looks to be compatible with FAST packs from the start and not only after second, more expensive release. Maybe Bandai will learn from Yamato and release these as an option and not in a bundle.

Are those gundam style head

Are those gundam style head vulcans on the head? With the beam guns on the side of the head, why does it need them? Maybe it's just me, but I don't remember seeing those in the show or lineart.

Those things

They are part of the head design of the VF-25S, I have no idea what is their function:

Problem...

I definitly want to grab one of these (Alto or Ozma), but I rather have the armored version...

So Am I suppose to wait for a kind of bundle version of, grab this one, and buy the armored pack later ?

Well...

In the original run of these, there were some combination packs but it was more common to sell the figures and upgrades seperately. It's not far-fetched to assume they might do the same this time, once they have more repaints out the door.

The bodies have been tweaked, so I don't know if the old armor/super/tornado packs will work or not.

This is all theory, of course. They may not release upgrades at all, or maybe these WILL be compatiable with the old parts, so people who bought the first run can save some money and we're almost guaranteed a release since a reprint of existing molds is easy money for Bandai.
