1/55's revisited

204 posts in this topic

Ok... many know I have a 1/55 fetish. I think I only need 9 more [mib or boxes for my loose] to have all of them boxed. 10 if somebody proves to me joon's made a 1a. Maybe more depending. Can anybody make a list of every 1/55 that was made off the original taka molds and sold boxed? I say boxed because every carded knock-off I've seen wasn't worth the plastic it was made of [even the obsessive have to have boundaries :rolleyes: . I consider it a proper 1/55 if I can swap parts between valks using taka's as my control... so toynami don't count :rolleyes:

I think I know which ones I need/exist, but looking through my loose valks I came across a taka 1s with a red chest stripe rather than yellow one and got confused. Did taka ever make a red chest stripe 1s? It's not a jetfire chestplate as its the hikaru 1a black/red rather than jetfires red/black. Anybody?

anybody have that stupid french valk I need :blink::blink:

I know everybody is 1/48 crazy at the moment, I probably would be to... if there weren't still 1/55's my completest butt still needed :( , but a little knowledge will aid my mental anguish immensely

I know where you can find the french one incomplete with broken head lasers for 75$, but I feel that is too high of a price for one.

Are you also looking for the box variants??

337756[/snapback]

if you mean like how the strike boxes can be smooth and glossy or dull and textured... not realy.

$75 for an incomplete frenchy with broken head lasers?!?! I'd probably pony up if it had the box and directions just so I could not have to worry about it anymore.

Actually, I'm positive there was a RED Joons 1A produced. I've seen them in a few Ebay acutions over the years. Prety hard to find.

It's not a Joons. The type Kanata is looking for are all boxed. The version your thinking of is carded.

**I added the Blister Packed types on to the list, just for reference. ;)

Thanks for the input easnoddy. :)

Pretty sure. The only ones I've ever seen are the red versions from China. They pop up very rarely on ebay.

Remember VF-1X that used to post here? He had an online store for a while before he got into drifting. Anyway, he also was a 1/55 completist and did finally hunt down a Red VF-1A Joons. He had pictures of it on his site and this was years before the Chinese blister carded knock-offs started.

Also there is supposedly a Green Taiwan 1J knock-off in the Robotec box along with the grey 1J Hikaru. I had the grey one at one time. Had a nice box and the inner tray was actually styro instead of plastic.

With so many beautiful 1/55s and so much love to they give, why would anyone bother going to the 1/48?

its been a few years since I've seen one, but I'm pretty sure the Joons red 1A had a Space Gandam box.
