This Valkyrie popped my cherry.

This was the first mecha toy that I ever owned, purchased at the Heroes World comic book store in Morristown, NJ. (I now live a couple of blocks from where it used to be.)

I remember that the Sausage Ranger rifle it had was really incongruous with the design. Loved that thing.

The one you have pictured here is in surprisingly good condition. Tommy Yune has one at the Harmony Gold offices that is severely yellowed.

An Old Favorite

Thanks for the reply. The previous owner bought this valkyrie on a family trip to Solvang, CA in one of their local toy stores. He was a huge Transformers collector so it very much stayed in the box all these years until he told me about it. It's great to finally own another one as I really enjoyed the one I had as a kid. the gun on the other hand still bugs me all these years later!

Dankon!
Leonardo
