Excellent review, VF5SS.

Excellent review, VF5SS. Though I remain non-fan of most Macross mecha designs after DYRL?, your words here moved me to nostalgia, and almost convince me that I want to get one of these as well!

Almost. =3

And with this review and what you have said, I am becoming even more excited about that upcoming Yamato Ver.2 VF-17.

EDIT: One request- could you please provide us a close-up of the missile launchers in the legs?

I'm going to express my

I'm going to express my feelings about this in the same way most mecha fans in my country do when they feel jealosy, admiration and respect all at the same time: I'm seriously starting to hate everyone who can afford getting this!

Jokes aside, though, excellent review. Very detailed and informative, with quite nice photos, and overall seeding even more desire for having a small fleet of Macross toys in my 23-y.o. head. A job well done.

Yes, after seeing so many bad

Yes, after seeing so many bad quality toys the plastic and deep colors on these are amazingly sturdy and solid.

These are really top toys.

Veefs also correct about how tight these things fit together, it really is one of the best toys of recent time.

As he stated the fit is so tight you can't tell that it turns into a robot and not just any robot but a blue Orguss.

Imagine that, a Valkyrie that turns into an Orguss, how cool is that? The best of both worlds.

"Gerwalk mode is so secure..."

"...even genius Asterpaulinizer could not begin to transform it to a different mode."

Hahahaha it's true, I handled VF5SS's Fire Valkyrie in gerwalk mode for about five minutes before just handing it back to him and admitting I had no idea what part to transform first.

It makes me a little sad.

Nice review. The toy looks sweet, but I must admit that I'm a little sad at how complex the new Macross toys are. The transformations are so complex that I have to watch Josh B or someone else on youtube walk me through the process. Once I've done it I'm hesitant to transform it back. Or if it's been on my shelf for a few months I don't remember how to transform it back. I think Bandai and especially Yamato are doing some amazing work, but these toys are really becoming complex models to me. My 1/55 I can just manhandle and transform all day long whereas I haven't even bothered to transform my Yf-29. That's a little embarrassing, but it looks sweet on the flighstand. Anyone else feel that way? Or is it worth the complexity to everyone to have the perfect transform?

If you don't want your YF-29

If you don't want your YF-29 you can give it to me.

Also get off my lawn.
