Bandai : Hi-Metal Red Canopy Cover for Bandai 1/55 VF-1S Strike Valkyrie
Manufactured : 1984 Original Yen Price: ??
MW's Current Collectibility Rating: Bend Over
MW's Max price we'd pay: $??
Description :

I found this on Cool Japanese Toys marketplace about 2 years ago, but missed the sale(doh!) by a couple weeks.
Apparently you could get a red clip on canopy cover(instead of the stock screw on black version) by entering special contests or raffles(or something like that). Why would you want a red cover? To match Hikaru's valkyrie in the Macros movie of course. Why it came stock with a black version we'll never know(ok-so it is drawn black a couple times in the movie by accident but that doesn't count)

If you have more information about this please send it in! Thanks


MW's Collectibility Rating
These are Graham and my personal evaluations of the item's collectibility and availability. By no means should they be considered as 'Officially Researched' data.
You are more than welcome to disagree with them.

EASY : These items are consistently on auction sites or at local anime shops at very good prices
FAIR : These items appear frequently on auction sites or at local anime shops at relatively good prices
DIFFICULT : These items rarely appear on auction sites or at local anime shops at good prices
VERY DIFFICULT : Pop up every few months. Depending on demand can far exceed expected value. Usually hard-core collectors battle it out over weird stuff like this
BEND OVER : When these appear(sometimes frequently like the 1/55 valkyries) on auction sites or at anime shops be prepared to take out a small loan
