Official 1/60 YF-21 News & Picture Thread (ver.2)

Recommended Posts

Have to say the Flexi Stand and Yamato clear stand are equal, both give different options to the displayer.

ESPECIALLY for the 21, i had a hard time prodding the 21 up with the flexi stands (battroid is awkward), clear stand is perfect.

So now you seen the 21, are you finally going to give into the macross Plus line when your done with the hikky shrine Ryno mate mate??? :D

Is it me, or does the YF-21's clear stand kick ass; in battroid mode in particular??? Since my display is all glass, the light passes right throug it and it almost becomes transparent as if the figure is actually floating or flying! If it wasn't from my walls being a tanish beige color the stand would be invisible! I LOVE ITTTTGHHH!!!!

^_^

OO

Your not wrong man it does blend in well! See with mine the glass and clouds make it pretty much invisible.

Yeah, did you get that from TSINC99, the guy from San Francisco (his store's name escapes me atm) or someone else? I got the 21 and the fold booster for $260 and I thought that was decent. I find it funny that I still see the old 19 and 21 around with asking prices above $200...

Pretty happy overall with my purchase but I'm kind of suspicious that the unit has been played with already. I noticed some wet/shiny substance on at least the left leg/hip area. Thought it might have been glue but it's not. Might be oil/grease but I'm not positive. Did anyone else notice copious lubrication any where on their 21?

Yes, oil stains or greasy fingers :lol:

Can't remember which wing, but other than that, it's a nice, tight work of art!!!

Not sure if it was TSINC99. The guy that sold it to me did not have a store name up, but he did give me a business card. It said Taostoys. I forgot from where.

Mine seemed fine--no evidence of prior handling of the toy.

They could have done a good job of cleaning it up though. <_< The tape seals seemed ok.

I still love it!

Nope definitely some form of lubrication. It was right near the hip joint and all over it and the hip/thigh area. Having transformed it and played with it a bit I am no longer suspicious of foul play. Just never had a yammie with visible greasing before.

That's an online dealer. Good deal man they have the 21 listed on their site for $220!

I'm supposed to go check out Cards & Comics Central (the San Francisco guy that was at SDCC) with a buddy. I guess he needs another yammie fix. He only got a yammie stand for his 19 at SDCC :lol:

Ah finally got my YF-21. It's almost perfect. A bit irritated that the little nubs that are supposed to lock the nose/front-torso in place are much smaller than in the manual (they don't do their job). Uncollapsing the backpack scared me $h!tless. First I couldn't do it despite multiple tries, then I pulled reaaaaally hard and it went *CRACK* and was fine. But damn if that isn't the scariest part of the transformation for me (followed by the belly plates being pulled out for battroid).

The gunpods were a pain to get onto the belly plates too.

It's one damned beautiful valkyrie toy. :D I'm confident that the VF-11 will be nothing short of amazing! :D

this bird must be selling very well. i spent nearly a whole day combing the toy stores in HK and couldn't find one until late afternoon. unfortunately, it's from a mall where the proliferation of fake stuff has been rumored. does any one know of any fake YF-21's? or better yet, how can i tell if mine is fake? looks good from the box viewing window though the stand is less clear than i thought it would be. any info appreciated. thanks

btw, got it for a little under US$160. not sure if that's any indication

Absolutely!

To be honest I had never been a big fan of the 21, I always preferred the 19. However now that I got the 21 staring me in face I am falling in love... even my wife likes it more than the rest of my valks. yum yum..
