Bandai DX YF-30 Chronos

Recommended Posts

But the YF-30 has shields on both arms!!!

You're right, but they are kind of VF22 or SV51 "shields"... And I have to say that I do like the shields too, but the rear of all the "Shield-ready" Valks are just the same... I don't know.... If they make it kind of folding, or anything, but the "Detach the shield, release the arms, re attach the shield bla bla bla" have me a little tired.

And I admit that the backpack on the Chronos is overkill, but in-game looks amazing ;)

And please excuse my caveman english...

Maybe it's just me, but i love the arm shields on the 19's and 25 series. I know it isnt practical, but i love em.

It's not you... I like them too, but it's just too much. If you like Battroids they look good, but they are way small to be anything but effective! They are what they are to line up the rear of the Fighter, and it's ok... But a change is always welcome :D

I think I've found the concept behind this YF :D

Bandai has no current orders for any DX models. It's just the two super parts sets.

The lull before the Storm.

I have a strong feeling the worst is yet to come. LOL

How much worse could it get?

knowing Bandai, there will be slew of repaints and remold of the YF29s and other variations of the VF25 Messiah. and we will still buy them. ALL OF THEM.

This is the first time they've ever really done "slews" of paint jobs. It's kind of hard to tell what they will do to me.

Honestly, I like the 29 so much that i can see myself getting several more variants. An Ozma scheme would be an almost certain buy.

There´s no doubt that Kawamori loves Russian aircrafts !

The YF-30 is a transforming tribute to the SU-50 PAK-FA and I love it ... just like the Messiah was to the Flanker ;)

Might grab this guy just because I like the fighrer mode so much and it's a little different.

I suppose that depends if the YF-24 had those inspirations as well.

Does Bandai even have a presence at Wonderfest? They do their own thing don't they?

Bandai didn't feel like showing stuff under heavy snow conditions. They preferred to stay in bed.

Bandai had a shortage of materials so they couldnt print posters or prototypes, apparently that's why there's so little preorders avail.

afaik, they dont participate in wonderfest since as you have already thought, they have their own event every year

and seeing the feeds from wonderfest, it is like "THE EVENT" for figures (and not for general scale models). I mean the amount of prototype and announcement of figures are too high.

I thought Bandai would only announce new items at their own events like the Tamashii Nations stuff or the Gunpla Expo.

Someone is going to see this update and get excited for news so I'll apologize in advance. I wanted to ask when the next Bandai event is because I'm hoping there will be more info on this thing then.

Comparing the pictures, the YF-21/VF-22 looks more similar to the Sukhoi, and its as if the YF-30 is an incarnate of the YF-21/VF-22...

The YF-21/VF-22 are actually based off of the YF-23 Black Widow there are also video's with Kawamori taking pics of it and checking it out when he came to the US to look at it. I wanted that plane to win over the Raptor so bad when I was younger, but I think the Raptor was ultimately cheaper.

Oh yea, almost forgot back in the days (2003-2004) I was searching for different macross planes, the YF-23 came out in the search, when I was incrementally increasing the number after every YF and VF (i.e YF-21, 22, 23...lol). Thanks for the heads up, now watching some awesome YF-23 videos
