Attached are pics of the prototype Toycom YF-19 toy in all 3 modes. These
pics are from the February issue of Dengeki Hobby magazine.
think the Toycom YF-19 looks nice, but not as well engineered as the VF-11
toy IMO. Here is my list of minor complaints:-
I don't think the landing gear looks that great when compared with the
landing gear on the prototype VF-11 pics.
it appears that the groin piece of the YF-19 can't fold completely flat
in Gerwalk and fighter mode which may block attaching the gunpod in
the screw on the forearm just behind the hand. This means that either
the hands cannot retract into the forearms or possibly, there are forearm
hatches which can be opened and the hands will rotate rearwards into
the forearms as per the Studio Half Eye YF-19.
screw socket on the mid-wing pivot point.
I'm still gonna buy two or three despite these minor niggles :) The February
issue also has some great close-up pics of the Studio Half Eye VF-19 Kai
& VA-3, which I haven't scanned yet.
