Finally got around to testing my Yeti Alpha Stand.

That looks fab! but for me personally I still cannot bring myself to display a Valkyrie without the fan covers in place.. other than a VF-27

It would be tough to get the compressors to work without air.:p

Thanks mate! I pretty much always take them off unless in Battroid or when Strike or Supers are attached.  It's annoying to keep them in their box, but my OCD gets the best of me LOL

Why is that? Because they're not recessed enough?

Haha, I'm the same way mainly because I just think the covers look better. One reason is because yeah, the fans look silly so close to the intake. The other is the way the covers look, they could work either by sliding open or just folding open, in the latter case, they would still be visible and I can just pretend they are either way with them on.

Just compromise. Left intake with fan covers and right intake without. :lol:

:ph34r:

Might as well just cut them in half and put them both on but each side is only half covered :P

That could work as a mid transition mode. Reason now to by an extra of each Valk!

Once you cut it doesnt patch back quite the same way.

I keep the intake covers on all the time except maybe for photo taking. When you have dozens of valks, it gets a bit onerous keeping track of all the little baggies with each valk's intake covers. I don't keep them in their boxes because that's even more annoying to have to find the box and dig them out.

All the little ziplock bags go into one big tupperware container with all the intake covers and other small interchangeable parts.

I don’t have enough valks for it to be a problem for me, so i prefer to keep them on or off appropriate for the mode its in. 

I do agree that it can be annoying to have all the intake covers in 1 zip lock bag, as I found it hard to match up the correct cover for each valk when i had more valks. 

Convenient if you had the Arcadia clear stand with the storage built in.

Each valk gets its own separate labeled bag. I use the small "snack size" ziploc bags. 

But I have a lot of valks so it's a lot of little baggies. :lol:

Yup.  One zip-loc bag per valk.  (or any other collectible with swappable pieces)

So essentially you're paying a premium for the weathered edition.

I have never really liked the exposed fan detailing in most if not all the Valkyries.. the VF 27 just has black holes with no fan detailing and looks great with the covers off in fighter mode.

I know the technology behind the Valkyries is meant to be different to real life fighter jets but even in most jets you don't see the fans especially the more stealthy ones..

@spanner see what you started? :rofl:

Actually, it’s pretty interesting seeing everyone prefer to keep them on. I’m in the minority here it seems.

Asthetically I like them on. But, when the Valk is in atmospheric mode I tend to take them off. The 0D having no space mode (as far as I know) means no covers except Battroid.

I just realized how strong the dork is in me.:lol:

It's time to update that storage game.:D

I got some of thseand only use thre shelves so I can stack boxes better. They work great because you can roll them into each other which takes up a lot less room. When you want to get at something you can just open up acess to the shelf you need. Works like a charm.

What happens when you have so many stacked in a room there’s nowhere to roll them?:p
