Yamato 1/60 VF-17 Nightmare Diamond Force

Recommended Posts

I hope they don't forget to make it Fold Booster capable.

http://www.macross2.net/m3/macross7/vf-17d-foldbooster.htm

They won't...but it will be a proprietary version that doesn't work with your other valks. Check this out vf-17d-foldbooster-lineart.gif

Only one attachment point, which means the booster you have won't end up working. Maybe they will package it with the radome and super parts.

EDIT: Comparing the fold booster to the "Plus" ones on mecha manual, it seems there are some subtle shape differences that would necessitate a new mold anyway...you win this time Yamato...

Milia's short-lived -17 does have yellow stripes. Always thought it'd look MUCH better with white...

Of course, I wouldn't mind a teal version too. . . but with an elongated cockpit, a more slender-looking battroid, and a "1" and an "EX" after the "VF-17." ;)

Thanks for the CAD pic and update, charger69!

I too prefer the color-scheme on the 17D in anime52k8's post. If we wind up with the 17S and its yellow-striped scheme though, I'm sure I can bust out some light blue paint and get exactly what I want. :)

I like the fighter mode of the 171 more too but I don't like how the nose cone needs to fold in battroid mode.

Looking good!!!

Surprisingly enough, Yamato’s CAD drawing has EXACTLY the same shape than the line art.

Just two differences though: the lower legs seem to be thicker in the CAD drawing, which makes me think the battroid mode might be on the chunky side. The other difference is the CAD drawing is much better looking!!! :lol:

The slimmer nose in the CAD looks better too. Happy.

Will it have a compartment in the leg to stow away the gunpod and then another compartment in the other leg for the laser attachment ? – that’s what I wanna know

That may the hardest thing to achieve on the VF-17 - the lower leg will need to store a folding gunpod on one side and landing gear on the other, but thin enough to keep the fighter mode from getting too thick. If they can, I would still expect it include a second, bigger "anime-proportion" gunpod, like the VF-19 Kai will include two guns.

Hoping this bad boy has ratchets and detented joints ALL OVER. The silhouette evokes indestructability, I hope the toy does too. Yamato has been stepping up.

Now to finish Macross 7 and see if Gamlin used the D more than S...and which one he was more bad ass in.

If I recall, he did use the D more, but kicked more ass in the S.

I thought it was top secret so we are not allowed to discuss it. :rolleyes: We might have known already too much.

I watch over my shoulders from time to time these few days.

And the topic title needs changing. Not sure why you guys think it is a D. Just saying.

I'd prefer Yamato started with the D, I like it more than the S.

But I'm sure we'll get both, and I'm positively sure I'll get two of each :lol:

welcome back graham! I was suprised too when this topic was suddenly locked...like maybe this info was not supposed to be released to the general masses.

I'm looking forward to pics of the prototypes. If the VF-19 Kai gives indication of Yamato's effort from now on, I am extremely optimistic...

I'd also prefer an S first, but will still buy at least two of each.

I was surprised by the whole "D" first as well. The "S" is seen far more often and has 3 different hero pilots. There is an easy repaint with Miria too, though none too stealthy.

They both look good and I am sure that no matter which one comes first, the other will follow.

Miria's VF-17S? Yes please.

Will buy 4 of each. If you got FAST Packs comin, then I will buy 7. This is one of my favourite mecha in the Mac7 universe.

Hope the USD is still low when it comes out.

Don't obsess on the CAD details and shape too much, still preliminary stage and could change.

If we are getting Gamlin's S, I guess I will be busting out the light blue paint on that yellow trim. ;)

YIPPEE SKIPPEE! Oh man, what if my wife gets pregnant before its release?

Just be the super-husband/super-dad beforehand:

* If the wife has a late-night craving for burgers and ice cream, just go out, buy the stuff, and bring it home without making a fuss.

* If she's tired and uncomfortable, help her make her fortress of pillows or offer to give her a foot massage.

* When the baby comes, try to be the one to wake up in the middle of the night to change, feed, and/or soothe the kid.

* Be the one to wash all those freakin' bottles and other baby feeding accessories (Yes, I'm looking at you, ya damn Doctor Brown bottles!).

Do all this stuff (and more) for the wife and kid, and she may not mind it too much if you give yourself a little "Nightmare" reward*.

* (Just remember she may pull the "I carried and delivered your child; where the hell is MY reward?!" card). :blink:
