Featuring Variable Fighter (better known as Valkyrie or Valk for short) VF-1A Low Visibility from 'Do You Remember Love' of Macross.
This is supposedly a limited edition production and the price for this piece is sky high; approximately 200% above its original price.
Variable Fighters are transformable and it comes in three modes. The Fighter mode (plane), the Gerwalk (Ground Effective Reinforcement of Winged Armament with Locomotive Knee-joint) and the Battleroid (robot mode)
Next up, we have the Super VF-1J with Fast Packs and it's piloted by the protagonist of the series, Hikaru Ichijyo in Macross, otherwise known as Rick Hunter in the Robotech series.
The Super VF-1J is featured in the animation series of the Super Dimension Fortress and is accompanied by the Super VF-1js of Max and Millia which I will feature the next time round.
These are manufactured by the Yamato group and they are of 1/48 scales. Highly detailed and are great display pieces with good articulation for great poses.
However, they can be very fragile and one wrong move could be disaster. Great caution must be exercised when handling them. Each valkyrie took me about 2 hours or so to transform, display and take pictures.
Well, although time consuming, it's all worth it. Did I mention I have 10 of these?
