is that VF-1J Hikaru a Hi-Metal R release?  It looks variable....or am I missing something. That VF-19A does not lool variable though.

Twich

Not sure about that VF-1J (might be an HMR) however the VF-19 is definitely for the GN-U DOU line from Yamato and is Non-Variable. 

Image result for GNU Dou VF-19

Never had one of the Yamato GN-U figures...the detailing though for that VF-1J seems to make up for its small size.  Thank you for clarifying that for me.

Yup. 

VF-1J is the HM-R version. 

VF-19A is the old GN-U Dou.

Awesome collection @LORDRANCID77. The Old Yamato 1/48 may not be as poseable as the new DX Valk but still looks damn good IMO. 

I definitely like this pic cause I own all 3 as well. :D

Most of Macross' historical Valkyrie progression in just one formation. What else could you possibly want. This is why Macross valks are so much fun. 3 modes, several armors and set ups. It never gets old to me.

 

Great pictures everyone. Interesting sideways display there Lordrancid. Also, Saburo's and Kuma-style's photo work, should be in magazines.

I am 99% certain it is. I'll check soon, but i don't have any of the accessorizes for it.

Well, not sure if it is the matchbox, but it says Bandai underneath. I bought it at a collectible store out of the box like 17 years ago. This poor thing has been with me for nearly two decades now.

Matchbox licensed the SDF-1from Bandai, after they acquired the Takatoko molds. So yeah that is a Matchbox by way of Bandai SDF-1. I Still have mine for three decades.

^ That's what it was! Thanks for the info! (this may sound cheesy, but that Bandai logo always made me happy, when i spotted it in a toy, back then)(Like Jetfire, etc.)

You are lucky! I had to grow old, grow a beard, and then i was able to find one at a reasonable-ish price. It's radar array is hanging on one side, partly broken, but it reminds me of that episode when they go dark. I was going to fix it, but I never got to it. This is how i got it back then, and i am just grateful I have it at all.

I know this is a pretty simple toy, but it has the spirit of the Macross, and that's enough for me. Every once in a while i think about weathering it, but i have not made my mind up yet.

Yeah those radar antenna and side antenna are not durable I forgotten how many times I had to glue it in place. Gorilla glue works better than crazy glue.

I know, I'm showing of. But since we're on the subject of the Matchbox SDF-1 and I just scored a really sweet one yesterday I thought I would post pics. This dude is completely custom painted. There are no decals/stickers ion it. That's all paint!:yahoo:
