VF-17S Stealth Valkyrie

The 1/65 VF bootleg toys from Macross 7 had die-cast metal joints on the hips. Are there any metal joints on this reissue & the original one?

Wow, I kinda dig that fighter

Wow, I kinda dig that fighter mode, it makes the Valkyrie look more of a "space ship" than a jet.

I've seen around the web some people who made some modifications in the toy's legs to give it more poseability and the ability to achieve a normal gerwalk mode. Sounds like a nice thing to do, since it boosts the play value.

Thanks for the review!

For a second...

...I thought that was Yamato's NEW VF-17.

Will you also be reviewing that Josh?

I had one of these years ago,

I had one of these years ago, I never saw Macross7 at the time but I really liked the look of this thing. In fact if I'm not mistaken I ordered both through the Previews catalog but only received the VF-17, for the gun I just used one of the screw holes in fighter mode to keep it together (I know not anime correct). But this thing was a solid brick and super durable but unfortunately I sold it years ago on Ebay.

so really, there is not any knee articulation (that you are able to use.)
