The world of Macross kept expanding and so does the toy line. What invoked this and the subsequent post is due to pre-order for new VFs (Variable Fighters) from the latest Macross Frontier Movie. What I have here is an old purchase which I had no time to post but I have and posted the SV-51ɣ Nora Type from Macross Zero.
"The SV-51 was the only Variable Fighter secretly developed by the Anti-U.N. forces. This top secret fighter was constructed with the use of alien OverTechnology obtained illicitly from the U.N. variable fighter development under undisclosed circumstances."
This is one of the weirdest looking Macross Valkyries I have and I like the Ivanov and the Nora Type for their peculiar design and that they reminds me of Maximillian Jenius and Millia Fallyna and their VF-1Js.
I shall not say too much as this is an old and the only place to get it will be the open market. Yamato has also been renamed as Arcadia and the prices of their toys have also been revised and I'm glad I'm not getting anymore.
Starting with the Fighter mode and the details are superb. The color scheme is D.D. Ivanov, an ace pilot thus flying the ɣ version which is specially tuned.
Display stand is provided for this.
Although it's stated 2002, I think this was out in 2007-2009.
The gerwalk mode.
The interesting feature is the feet which is oriented differently in Battleroid and Gerwalk.
The unique periscope feature
The following poses were incidental. The joints being loose gave way and I found the pose rather intriguing and apt for the SV-51ɣ.
