Destroid Conversion Kit

Always love more Destroids.

The Spartan never really shared a chassis with the other three in fiction, so the omission makes sense. The tooling wouldn't be very similar, so they'd either have had to include a very innacurate Spartan, or engineer a significantly more involved armor system, and it's easy to see why they'd just stick to the three that did use the same chassis in-universe. Still a huge shame they never made more Destroid figures with this quality, because these are some of the designs I always found most memorable in Macross.

Seems like most fans just go nuts over the transforming planes, and I'm all about those too, don't get me wrong, but something about these frog-man looking mechs has always appealed to me. Probably the same reason I always preferred the mass production type mechs in Gundam.

This is a great piece that never seems to get enough attention, so thanks for sharing it!

Yes, this is a lovely set...

...I have one, and I don't recall paying that much for it at the time compared to what vintage Valkyries were going for. Mine is a little floppy but I never thought of adjusting the screws. Its a little bit of a shame that theres only one body included, it would have been nice to display all three Destroids at once but I understand the kit-like nature is part of the appeal.

My Mum found one of these in a UK Charity Shop for £15!!! Missing about 3 pieces and a few stickers applied but otherwise perfect. Cant bring my self to apply any stickers even though I am Gunpla nut.
