1/55's revisited

Recommended Posts

So it seems the 30th anniversary Macross party has not run out of steam yet....as we approach 2014.....we can now properly celebrate the 30th anniversary of DYRL...

With that said...anyone up for 1/55 Bandai Hi-Metal VE-1, VT-1 and VF-1S Strike (Hikaru and all-new Roy!) re-issues with all new Tenjin box art? :rolleyes:

I actually think that a 1/55 toy would be very fitting for the 30th Anniversary scheme since it's been around the longest.

I still like my 1/55's but they are no longer the premier display for my Macross toys

Mine died :(

Arms fell off. Tabs on the armor all broke. Parts yellowed. Stickers peeled. To be fair, I played with it a hell of a lot as a kid.

Hrm... on one hand, free labor to dust the collection... on the other hand, there's probably some sort of laws against it, but I might be willing to take that chance

Hello, anyone know where to find the old 1/55 collection websites like the "Shirogane's Toylab" or the "Valkyrie Museum"? And other websites that showcase pictures of the 1:55 boxes, manuals and stickers, fighter, gerwalk and battroid modes in front, side and back views etc. Something like the mactama website? Or is there someone who was able to preserve these websites and their pictures?

This thread is ten years old now, I can't believe it still gets posts. That shows the power of the chunkie monkey. Move over Arcadia the old guys are back.

Well once my new workshop is built ( a little way off yet) I intend to get very interested in my 1/55's again, along with all my Macros kits that are all boxed. There will finally be somewhere I can show them off after as well, air tight and UV stable. :)

Valkyrie Factory in the 90s, what a web page that was. It was at the top of my list.

I miss all the old links... Valkyrie Factory, Rosario Love's Dreamflight, Valkyrie Exchange... because it wasn't just a store, it had a lot of interesting pages. Your cockpit and stickers was the tops too!

But now I rather keep my 1/55s pristine and original. The other toys provide all the articulation and extra detail. But they still can't beat the fun of transforming it.

Quick Question:

Will the 80's Strike Parts of the VF-1S Strike Valkyrie fit the Bandai Reissues and the Origin of Valkyrie toys?

Yes with the exception of the arm armor

Yes you need to be a bit brutal with a dremel

I saw the answer to this for strike parts, but I've got FAST packs with my reissue Max VF-1A. My question is: will the 80s GBP armor fit the Bandai or Origin reissues?
