Huh, the Minmay figure is supposed to be articulated... I dunno about that... For large female figures I prefer them in fixed poses.

Where does it say it's articulated?

Bobe-Patt, you are correct sir. I had my wife translate the three points for me (but I didn't have her write it down, sorry guys).

The articulation was point 3, point 2 was something about it being a much more detailed and uber-awesome figure because it's being done in a larger scale (I guess as opposed to cm corporation trading figures). I think point 1 was something about a cool detailed costume.

Well, i have to say i am very pleased with these news.

I am getting the yf-19 black for sure, cause i was waiting for the dark scheme, and i dont think they will make another one (the low vis i was waiting for, but if they do, its ok, this one looks amazing for me). Only down point i can think is it need some matching booster set, which i am not sure they will make.

As for the vf-1s, i really really really want it too, but since i already have Roy's, and my girl friend is watching my budget tightly, i dont think i can pull it off (might try to secretly though).

And with this great news, i dont feel bad not having ordered the Skywarp Master Piece anymore. Thank You Yamato for making the dark schemes (but consider having a skull gold tampood print also). Honestly, as soon as i saw the original pictures, i said my purchase for 2007 - mid 2008 is set. I will of course wait for another color scheme of the yf-21 (hopefully an orange/red or a low vis type scheme).

Finally a 1/48 repaint again :D

things were getting quiet in the old-skool dept. at Yamato

(and for someone as me not interested in the 'later generations' the release is good news)

Yuck, the font on those is "Brush Script", which is one of the most hackneyed fonts ever created. It belongs in the hall of shame along with Hobo and Comic Sans. :angry:

Still, I may buy one of these, even if I have to remove the script printing. We shall see.

Exciting news. Well, the cheesy script on the valks are actually "meh" to me, but the idea of a 1:4 scale(ish) Minmay is really awesome.

Maybe the Minmay figure will have removeable clothes like Yamato's Animal Girl Lynx figures, or Mega House's Queens Blade figures... I'd be much more inclined to buy it. :)

Very cool! Tell your wife thanks for translating the text.

Hmm, a 1.6 foot tall posable Minmay figure. Lonely Japanese fanboys rejoice! :lol:

I REALLY hope that "25th Anniversary" text is all decals. Would prefer to leave them off for a cleaner, less tacky look.

If they are tampo-printed then I am suddenly not in a hurry to get these.

I'm the opposite. I want the 25th anniversery markings to be tampo printed on, not tacky stickers.

I was wondering how to remove tampo myself. As someone stated early it looks like the John Player Special scheme and that font doesn't help. It looks so late 80's.

odd, since JPS sponsored Lotus from 1976-1986 :p

I just spoke with Yamato and while my contact didn't know off hand, he is going to check for me whether the 25th aniversery markings are tampo printed or stickers. As soon as I get a reply I'lll let you know.

It's interesting that according to Yamato nearly everybody who saw the toys at the concert preferred the YF-19 to the VF-1.

That is weird. I thought the VF-1 is as cool as the 19. Maybe people are tired of the repaints of VF-1 and this is the only other color that is available for the Excalibur and that makes it special.

50 cms: I hope a Minmay with the chinese dress, or dyrl? dress...

Maybe both so you can change her hair style and dress her up depending on your mood or the time of the day... :blink:

Nevermind, its not a Barbie. I'll shut up now.

I'm j/k btw. :lol:

Are the 25th anniversary valks going to come with 25th anniversary pilots as well?

I agree, the 25th anniversary text looks sooooo tacky IMHO.

Meh.

the gold 19 does look much cooler i think. And i also hope that the 25th logos arent tampoed, Id be keen to have the valsk without em. Graham, can u tell us if the colour is a shiney one, or the same matte tones they used on the stealth?

Matte tones would be better IMHO.

I am hoping as well that the text are stickers. I prefer the look of that 19 with gold trim, but no text.

Did I miss something while reading this thread, or has it not been determined if these are limited or not?

I think it's only logical. We only get a 25th anniversary once, so we only get the 25th anniversary VF's once.

I'd prefer they put those 25th anniversary wording on a special display stand, rather than put them on the valk... ;)

Every item is limited. No item is in constant production! B))

I asked and was told these will be regular production items available retail, not part of some exclusive mail in campaign or other such silly nonsense.

I wouldn't buy it either if it were a tampon, but I'd prefer it if the marking were tampo printed. :p

Sometimes you MWers are really schitzo. Normally you are all screaming at Yamato for more Tampo printing, yet now when there is a possibility of tampo printed markings you want stickers!!!!

Don't look at me, I'm with you on this one boss. The more tampo printing the better IMO. :blink:

I think it is because, unlike other markings, the "25th Anniversary" in our world dose not fit in any Macross's universe/timeline....

Imagine the boxart for the Hasegawa model that will be done by Tenjin, you will probably see a a "real life" picture of the 25th anniversary valk that can not exists...

... why some people don't want tampo'd markings... lol weird.

Swoosh why not? 25 years down the track someone would fly a VF-1S 25th scheme out for some type of concert parade

space or planet bound air show. I can fit that somewhere in my fan boy mind. :p

Im not schitzo, I have said all along part of the fun for me is putting the stickers on! :)

In this case its...well, I guess its breaking the world to me. No real plane would fly around like that unless it was a display plane, and im not to kenn ona display plane. however the black with gold trim is a very dynamic scheme, and id like to own it. so if they can just skip tampoing on the 25th anniversary bit, then they can tampo on the rest for all i care :D

Hey graham: Again, is the black a matte or gloss, d u know?

Well... I guess you are partly right ^_^ .... But this time... The "25 annyversary" is too "advertising" for a valkyrie if you know what I mean...

I want a special color schem.. Yes... But I want a black YF-19 without "advertising" on the plane for a annyversary... even if it's for the 25 year of Macross... I woulk like a yf-19 totaly black with gold Stripes..

I want to have the choice for my valks..... Like the models kit.....

Well I want evrythings... I know... I know... And I want it now..... what can I say ?? I'm macross fan... not an advertising fan..
