Wait till we get an arm breakage report shortly after release... sorry, I couldn't help it :D

You are right, I think I am being too optimistic. With Yamato, you never know :rolleyes:

Anyhow, this toy looks darn good.

This is the most awesome toy I don't want to buy.

Other than the 1/3000 DYRL version SDF-1.

Height difference between VF-19 and VF-11B is not that bad IMO

i'm still not sure. in certain pics they seem to be translucent. in in the new photos (just posted) the eyes appear to be painted.

Graham, are the eyes translucent or painted?

Looks great, just want to know if it can be manhandled. The 1/48 VF-1 and 1/60 VF-11 are very sturdy releases, if this thing is at least as good as those 2 I might pick one up(my intention was to always wait out for the Blazer but now I might buy both...depends).

IMO this is the right difference and will look more proportionate than before –I mean YF-19/VF-11.

About the eyes… I don't really care too much, they seem to be painted IMO but very nicely done for what I can see in the latest close up pictures. Could they have been better made? Most probably. But there must be a reason for them to be like this, I remember the designer mentioning some difficulties regarding the faceplate design, so I don't think it's something they haven't think about.

Anyway, it's a hero's valk that seems to be the best Macross toy ever and looks great IMO, so I have to have it. I preordered it about a month ago at Anime Export for US$220, looking forward to the shipping invoice!

yep, looks okay between the two. but i suspect the joints might be extended at the knees and ankles (for GERWALK purposes) to make it a bit taller. any pics beside the M&M or Gamlin's VF-22S?

Eyes are painted.

Graham

They look good enough to me.

I don't know why there's already complaints about this. If it was a visor with depth like the VF-1S then yes it should be translucent. But with two small eyes there's not that much detail to be seen behind them.

Graham, can you ask Yamato to give the Blazer clear visor and get rid of the gap in the chest in B mode? Does it look like the wings can be swapped out easily? I want a Blazer with the long skinny wings from the Kai. Never like the fat short one on the Blazer.

Speaking of which....

Does anybody know why Yamato decided to choose "street clothed" Basara over his "band" outfit? Did Yamato take a poll of some sort to decide? I certainly hope Yamato won't make a limited edition version with the same exact Valkyrie but with a different Basara pilot. That would be the worst kind of milking for a $250.00 plus toy. However I do hope they add a band outfit Basara to the Soundbooster set.

It can be read at Yamato's site (http://www.yamato-to.../?infolnk=index) that as they can realize that some people may not be happy with a street clothed Basara, the possibility of a stage outfit Basara version to be included in a future release is under consideration.

So where else a Basara figure could be included? As you well guessed, only with the Soundbooster set.

Now look at the picture and tell me whether you can see the same I do beneath the Soundbooster…

Wow, it's been in plain sight all this while?

Also, still not seeing the McDonald's in the VF-19 Kai.

Reivaj.....awesome eagle eye you've got there.

Graham did mention this a few weeks ago...and we all just forgot it until you brought it up.

I'm giving you a post up for that.

Umm... No?

Edit: Nvm, just spotted it. Pretty poor product placement, but I guess they can say it was always there.

sorry, didn't get it... what fate would that be exactly? it'll sell out in a week and be re-issued a few months later?... or an unpainted kit version will come out later on? :unsure:

Ah. That picture. (^.^;) I guess I don't see it because of the lack of white and prominence of yellow.

Just got my "payment sent" update, 22,360 from HLJ, and luckily, I just got paid. Just got enough on this freakin' check to pay for this, car, bills, and rent for next month. Why does the first always seem to be just around the corner?

In regards to Ronald McKai, that really makes me want some french fries, a cold soda, and a Big Mac.
