Bandai 1/250 Macross Fighter Collection

Recommended Posts

That sucks the ghosts got lost in the mail. I thought I could help you out but the only extra ghosts I have are the QF-4000 group. Too bad :(

I check Ebay just about daily looking for the last 2 I need for all 4 series, the series 2 Ranka secret and the Klan secret from series 4.

If I happen to see those ghosts I'll let you know.

I've been playing with the idea of a custom shelf for all of the MFC valkyries. Came up with this to see what it would look like.

It would be better if the base is wall-mounted instead of resting on a shelf. =)

Thanks to Rabidweezil spotting it on Ebay and sending me a link, I finally have the AIF-7S that I was missing.

That means I finally have all 78 valks! My collection is complete until they release Macross Fighter Collection 5. (I really hope they do, but it doesn't look like it this many months after MFC4)

I just updated my post on anymoon.com to include series 2, 3, and 4. I tried to make it a one-stop shop for all the information anyone could need to know about these toys. Give it a peak and let me know if you feel I missed anything. -

Scored a Series 4 red Klan Secret off of ebay. That completes that series.

Series 2 Ranka secret is once again, the only one that stands between me and complete Macross fighter collection domination! <_<:angry:

It's a shame they didn't go forward with this line. There is so much more they could have done:

  • YF-29 Alto, Ozma.
  • VF-27 with Super Packs
  • SV-51 Nora, Ivanov, Cannon Fodder, with/without boosters.
  • VF-11B/C/D, with without Super Packs, radome, Atmospheric Super Packs.
  • Various Varauta mecha.
  • VF-17D/S/Kai, with/without Fast Packs, Radome, Sound Booster.
  • VF-5000B/G with/without Super Packs
  • VF-3000
  • VF-9
  • VF-22S Max & Milia,
  • VF-2SS with SAP
  • VF-2JA

Etc., etc.

I'm surprised they quit too. It looks like they sold pretty well considering most places ended up out of stock somewhat quickly.

I'll check tonight when I get home. Personally, I can't stand those Ranka and Sherly versions, so I just slung them all in a plastic bag, which got shoved on top of my closet and haven't looked at them since.

Thanks Graham, I appreciate you checking.

I don't really care much for the deculture ones either, my interest in this one is more to complete the collection then just the valk itself.

I recognize that picture. :D

Glad to hear you're closer to the complete set and hopefully you find that last one.

I wonder how many folks here have complete sets of all 4 MFC volumes.

I don't remember if I've mentioned this idea before. Did you try a "want it now" listing on Ebay? That's how I ended up finding my YF-19.

Working on a little project with these things. And since my series boxes are all packed away. Can someone send me large, hi-rez scans of the front of each series box? Not the main big box, but the smaller boxes the actual valks come in.

for example, the series 1 box

Hi everyone,

This is my very first post.  I Joined the forum after seeing this thread online.  I have been a fan of Macross since the 80's and recently bought a few fighter collection figures.  Now I am hooked.  It's been some time since the las post on this thread but other than ebay is there any other place to buy single fighters?  I hope there is a 5 series.  Would love to see the VF-31' s, VF-17 and VF-2SS with super armor pack.  I would like to obtain:

VF-25 Alto tornado pack

YF-19 Isamu Daison

YF-21 or VF-22

VF-0S

VF-2SS

VF-1 super pack

I would be happy with just those.

Since this line is pretty old now, you will basically only find them second hand. I would recommend have a look at Yahoo Auctions Japan (you need to buy through a proxy service like From Japan or Buyee) or Mandarake.

Mandarake and Jungle don't have any, also they're g'dmn expensive.

Thanks Lorindor and Sanity Is Optional, I have seen their auctions but I am a bit hesitant to buy in there.  There are a few good finds on those auctions. I will keep trying.  I guess I am a little late to the fun :)

Yeah, YAJ is probably his best bet. But from time to time both Mandarake and Jungle add new items. They may be expensive, but not as much as eBay.

I wish I'd been collecting when those came out the first time, maybe I can hope another set comes out to go along with the Delta movie?

Hi everyone, its been a while.  I have been doing my own models since Bandai stop making them.  It has not been easy and results have not been the desires ones but I am for the most part pleased.  I made 1/250 scale for the  Sv-262, the VF-2SS with armor, the drone for the VF-0 and the YF-30.  Just need to make the VF-31 and I will feel complete.  These are made either with PVC plastic or hardening Clay.
