I gotta say, pictures dont

I gotta say, pictures dont do it justice because Ive seen it many times and I never gave it a second look, but I saw this one in person over the weekend and I was impressed. I dont have any newer style macross valkyries, but Im seriously going to look into picking this one up.

Head Visors

There's no light piping effect on the valk's head visors. I wonder if there was one for the prototype the Bandai team has made in the first draft.

I love that fighter mode so much, but I'm still not digging the other modes, save for a few bits. Like those delicious ankles. Mmmmm

It will be MINE!

While I don't love the VF-27 as much as, say, the YF-19 or VF-17, it's still REALLY awesome. This figure also seems to have fixed all the ugly ass problems inherent in BanDai's VF-25's.

And thus... I want!

Thanks for bringing this to

Thanks for bringing this to "show-n-tell' this past weekend, Andrew. Really cool set. So nice to see some progress, in a few joint areas, the landing gear, and head/neck, as compared to the one, 1st ver. VF25 I've got.
Also, that nosecone folding looks a little less frustrating into Battroid mode than the 25.

I'm diggin' the balanced overall design, and the slim look.

Looks very nice, But...

The design looks fantastic, and is a definite improvement over the dx chogokins of the vf-25s in terms of gerwalk mode. However, considering the standard bandai has set with some of their recent kits in terms of articulation, I can't help but feel that such an expensive toy should have double-joints in at least the arms. It seems to me, once again, bandai is deciding that it is "good enough" for your $200.
