The Double Nuts is still my favorite YF-19 toy representation.

Dig the colors

I'm a total sucker for the blue/white paint scheme on VFs. Max's TV VF-1A is my all-time favorite, and this looks like a good match for that. I've never really liked the YF-19's battroid mode, but this could tempt me...

Double Nuts!

It's the best color scheme for the YF-19, it really brings out the beauty of the design. I have my eye set in this thing since it was first announced, sadly it's on the very expensive side for me and have yet to see it on sale.

But I won´t loose hope that one day I might get it, I also loved the GFFMC Z plus blue, after reading the review here on CDX and watching how awesome that thing was. I remember thinking how unlikely was to get such a cool Gundam, yet almost a year after I was able to purchase one!

Thanks for the review of this Valkyrie. Now I know it's totally worth getting it.

The Double Nuts and the GFFMC Z Plus Blue go well together. I think the Z Plus blue's got a brighter white than Double Nuts which has a tint of grey to the white. Nevertheless, they still look good together.

I got a pair of YF-19

I got a pair of YF-19 (Duuble Nuts and Bird of Prey) in Hong Kong for almost exactly USD100 each ;) but the 25th anniversary black version is a bit more pricy, about USD130.

These things go on sale from time to time, check often and browse on the internet, a good way is to copy the Jap charcter of the name and try google with it, you sometime get real bargain by doing so -- I got my 1/12 purple scopedog for 5000 yen (shipping not included)

That's pretty informative tip to save on some Otaku tax for customers. Thank you alchemo, I'll keep that in mind when I'm shop-surfing.

I'm not too hot about the 25th anniversary stuff. The color schemes remind me of tar & licorice bars.

Love my Double Nutz

The YF-19 was and still is my least favorite Valk design, but in the interest of having one to go with my YF-21, I went with this one. I love it. Never was on board with the brown paint scheme...but this one rocks.

Well, It does feel good to

Well, It does feel good to get the latest items especially if it is an item you really like. but sometime if you are willing to wait a bit you'll get it with a bargain. I got nine 1/12 ATs and except the Brutish Dog I got all of them under or around USD100. even the Scopedong II with round-mover.

Certainly sometime you end up without the item that you want - I did not buy the GFF Metal composite 1002 Psycho Gundam when it was released and I never find it until now.

I don't know the case in other countries but here in Hong Kong and Macao toys usually retail with some 20% to 30% discount over the suggested prices except those that are sure hits, limited items or if the suggested price is low enough. The first 3 GFF Metal Composite were much awaited items at a very reasonal suggested price indeed.

Anyway, the Double Nuts is exceptionally good looking and the Bird of Prey is not bad either. joints are firm also. As I really don't like the 1/60 rendition on the YF-21 and VF-22, I can get more of the YF-19 instead (don't have the original one though).

I'm really glad to see the gunpod straight. Some men might be distracted by "new color schemes" or "tight joints" but I know where my priorities are: phallic machine cannons on giant transforming airplanes.

Did they add any locking

Did they add any locking mechanisms or latches to hokd it together? As I recall, nothing holds the parts rogether during Gerwalk on my reissue, among other such prblems. They should also strenghten the racheted feet; they collapse under the weight with both the 19 and 21 reissues.

This toy is the same as the original release in terms of construction. The joints are just tighter.
