That looks really, really nice. Wish the prices weren't skyrocketing with every release. =\

*sigh* I really, really want this. And I even prefer the alto version over the cannon fodder or luca variants. I guess I'll just have to wait until July, when all the scalpers put up sales on eBay....

I'll just convince myself that this is the same as the Yamato Vf-17 (as prices most likely will be similar at that stage)...

So are these things sold out for good then? (O_o)

I was hoping for a non-preorder listing at some point.

Non-preorder listings will exist. On eBay. :ph34r:

Well said. Don't forget sketchy dealers that list it for 2x MSRP months down the line though *looks at Anime Export*

While I do like this model, the price point atm is a bit out of reach for me. Also the availability seems equally scarce. Most websites were already sold out the minute they were posted for pre-order.

This is another reason I wish bandai weren't so stingy with their production runs. At least with yamato you know there will enough available upon release. Which strikes me as odd because bandai is a much bigger company with all the other properties and merchandise they have already. They should realise by now that the macross brand is profitable and does sell, maybe not as much as gundam sales per say but they can still make considerable profit from this franchise.

I know Japanese companies don't like to take risks but this trend has been getting on the extreme end of things lately and not just for the toy industry...

Wow! Didn't think it was possible but the new stock photos make it look even more badass than before.

Conversely it made me think that the nose section is a bit too long.

I'm also interested in that 1/1 scale VF-25 that is mentioned at the bottom of the second scan.

Bandai would :D

Also, great pics, but it makes the arms look a lot more spindly than in previous pics. I do prefer the beefier arms of the regular -17...

Bandai, please make the cannon fodder NUNS VF-171. You know they will sell out before release. So please do it!

Copy that.

Can't wait for the release of this. I'm not a big fan of the Frontier, but this looks incredibly sleek.

Yes please, would prefer a VF, low-vis or black/dark blue to this.

I am really hoping my Bigbadtoystore preorder comes through! Also, IF Bandai comes out with armor for the Vf 171ex, will it be the super armor found here http://macross2.net/...171ex-super.htm or just the beam gun and the micro missle launcher found here http://macross2.net/...sf/vf-171ex.htm? Personally, I hope for the super armor.

Considering the cannons on the version with extra armor are the same as the version without the armor if they do release this stuff (separately, as an overpriced Tamashii exclusive) I'd imagine they would have the armor, guns and all.

Lower page with Super 1S: is it an AD for a new artbook?

Randomly poking around on ebay bored at work just now, saw a pre-order for one of these, grabbed it... not too bad of a price as far as I can tell from other sites that were taking pre-orders.
