VF-27 (Super Deformed)
Review by Atom
Brera Sterne VF-27 is from the Banpresto produced prize items for Macross Frontier. Ichiban KUJI Premium Macross Frontier is sold in convenience stores across Japan as a lottery. Customers buy an 800 YEN ticket you pull from a blind box with a letter on it telling you which item you have won. It's completely random on what you end up with for your hard-earned YEN. Available in the set of Premium goods are...
- A. Klan Klang (Melatrandi Pilot) 25cm tall
- B. Sheryl Nome (Finale Concert Dress) 22cm tall
- C. Ranka Lee (Kira Pose) 20cm tall
- D. Nyan Nyan Bowl
- E. Sport Towel Set (Monster Girl, VF-25, Kabuki Alto)
- F. Super Deformed Character Figure Set (Ranka, Sheryl, Klan, Alto)
- G. Super Deformed Mecha Set (VF-25F Alto Battroid, VF-25S Ozma Armored Gerwalk, VF-27 Brera Battroid, Klan Queadluun-Ray, Raramia Queadluun Ray)
This review we take a look at the Super-Deformed/Chibi style of Brera Sterne's mecha comes in Battroid mode.
The figure is fairly non-poseable with only the waist turning and rotation in the shoulders but is featured in a striking action pose that still makes it look fairly cute even being a super cute version of the mecha.
The figure stands 4 and a 1/2 inches tall.
Paint detail is neat and clean and I must say for a “prize item” I am impressed. The figure feels like a nice solid, well-made piece, not a cheaper lottery/prize item.
The VF-25F is suitably cute and adorable and while I normally don't collect the chibi/super-deformed/nederoid style of figures but I got the entire Banpresto Prize set as a package (I was after the bigger, fixed pose ladies – to be reviewed soon) so I am happy to add it to the growing display of Macross in my collection. Fans of the cute/super-deformed style who like Macross F are sure to enjoy it as it is a top-quality collectible.
