New from Hasegawa 1/48 Weapons and 1/72Gerwalk

Recommended Posts

Why do I remember them being more expensive than that?

Anyway still a good deal.

Anyone know if the 1/48 weapons set will come with pilots like the 1/72 kit (I'm thinking no, cuz they already come with the valkyrie)?

No, no pilot in the 1/48 weapon set.

Chas: Not really, when you consider that a 1/72 VF-1 Super/Strike kit is around the same price.

Here's a sample: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10037736

Well it's a good deal considering what I paid for my 3 Hasegawa gerwalk kits. ;)

Looks like my reply got displaced again, mobile foruming is really not the best way to go yet. :p Was actually replying to your earlier question of whether the Gerwalk kit seems too low priced :D

Pre ordered mine last night along with a YF19 as a "spare"

Price wise they seem cheaper, maybe the exchange rate is better for me now ?

Yeah, that's what I thought... oh well, beggars can't be choosers I guess.

Any word on whether there's a TV cockpit too?

Also, is it just me or does the 'backpack' look too small?

Right now, I'm going to assume that TV pilot also means TV cockpit. Should know for sure once Hasegawa releases actual photos.

Gerwalk box art.

Nice!

Is that official?

Wouldn't it be nice if the wings came with optional parts for a flaps down build like that pic?

That box art captures what made the Arii box art so great. It's the 1980's all over again.

That was a flash back moment for me. I remembered when I saw the first IMAI macross kits of the Variable Fighters and their dramatic artwork of all their modes.

Could this herald a rebooted weapons set with the upgraded missiles ?

More for us to spend our cash on.

For myself, I'm hoping for a 1/72 VF-171 Nightmare Plus kit from Hasegawa.It makes sense after doing the Messiah and the Lucifer.

I'd hope they'd do one before the start turning their attention to the new series kits.

Bad enough a VF-17 was never done beyond a 1/144 by Bandai for Macross 7.

And I don't want to pay $200.00+ for the Chogokin figure version

Unfortunately, Hasegawa hasn't done a VF-27 Lucifer yet, only the Bandai POS.

Ooops! My mistake. I thought they had.

Well now I really won't be holding my breath for a VF-171 :(

And is the Bandai version really that bad? I've not seen an actual kit myself.
