  1. 1. If you lived in Japan would you pre-order a VF-4?

    • I would pre-order but I'm not sure I can afford it.
    • Yes I would pre-order, but I would only buy it if it was under $300 (about 24000円).
    • I would pre-order it and buy it at any price.
    • I would pre-order it just to bump the numbers, but won't actually buy it.

So Tenjin is wrong?

in the over-photoshopping of the skulls yes.

The brown VF-1A cannon fodder (TV vers.) also has brownish feet, so you're not far off from an already established color scheme.

I guess the definite color tones of the VF-4 will be like the TV version of the SDF-1.

Tenjin's art is amazing but it's not the end-all be-all. He's just another artist offering an interpretation, after all. I'd go off of what I see in animation before I took production or promo-art into consideration personally, especially when building/painting models or toys.

Yeah, that's definitely not one of his better works either. Some serious funkyness going on with the perspective and proportions.

Looking at it again, he also couldn't make up his mind on that illustration. The striping on the nacelles is chocolate, while the engine vector/feet things are slate grey, so it looks like he couldn't make up his mind on what color it was either. Really though, that's just a one-off illustration for those binder inserts, so I wouldn't take it as anything more than that anyway. Especially since, as said, it's hardly his best work.

He has been known to make mistakes, as well. Like the one illustration where he got the markings on Hikaru's VF-1S wrong and had to revise them later... :D:lol:

Actually Tenjin has been annointed the canonic blassings. He's not just another artist with interpretations.

I read an interview with Tenjin, and he said that Kawamori is always trying to get him to change the old designs. He said something along the lines of " I really like the original work the best" but makes minor tweaks and tries his hardest to keep them as close to original source as he can get away with. So EXO is right as far as I can tell.

Could anybody doing one of these customs cover the disassemble/assemble process?

Interesting. How does it look with the cannon installed?

well, that gives an idea of what it would look like with the packs.

I think the ones in the original lineart had the back sections folding down IIRC.

I don't think so, IIRC this is all there is:

VF-4G fastpack

As Reïvaj said:

Not officially. Maybe you're thinking of Sketchley's designs.

Here's the official links:

Guess I should've put watermarks on the images or something...

I kind of want to special make those Fast Packs of yours sketchley. I know they're redundant given how the VF-4's engines already function but I think it's a great idea how you implemented them.

Good luck. Though, I think the dorsal packs should be stretched forward somewhat - basically so the vertical stabilizers don't interfere with the opening of the missile launcher covers.

Nice Bird! What color of white did you end up using to paint the head?
