A Step Up

This looks really nice. I own the old armor parts, and finally just put it on display (after a couple years boxed). While it looks good standing still, there's no way I could pose that bad-boy in the dynamic way you seem to be able to here. Also, all the missiles on the old one are seperate pieces, which is neat...for a minute, until you realize you'll NEVER take them out of their mountings. This looks like a killer set. Thanks for the review.

"Hey, uh...let's volt in."

Dude, it's *Yamato*

"The problem with this is that the faux-shoulders are molded in color, in this case white, preventing the set from being "anime accurate" should you want to use the armor with other Valkyries of non-white base color."

Well, given Yamato's track record, that just means we'll see like six different repaint versions to cover all the possible color variations! (White, Blue, Red, Brown, Grey, and "unmarked" White.)

Although given the Japanese toy industry's new "screw you America" attitude, they might instead do shoulder-only sets as web-shop exclusives.

i have the old version 1/48 but i think this smaller version is much steadier and solid. as always, has nice detail, accessories and paint apps. nice review chief.

Standalone Armor?

I'm wondering if they will have (or do have) a kit with just the armor parts? I just don't think I need so many VFs just to get a heavy armor.

Standalone Armor?

A quick check of the Web shows that they do have a standalone armor. Yatta! (Should really check before I post.)

Weathered edition

Was there ever a weathered edition of this? Someone said there was one in which the VF-1J came with weathering on it.
