Well, that 29B was unexpected. The color scheme is nice but that visor color is not terribly attractive.

yeah, i'd have liked it to be a bit more yellow. i wonder if it's accurate to the game though....

they're hitting all the right notes, alright! =) hope they implement stricter quality controls as they earn more

Oooh, that's a pretty color scheme. So what's supposed to be different about the 29B?

And while I'm asking that, why don't the other 29's have letters assigned to them when they are clearly variants? It's not like Isamu or Ozma went, "I want you to design completely new monitor turret hardware to go with my new paint scheme!" Or if they did, that seems a little unreasonable :p

Does this now set a record for repaints with a mold?

Ha ha, looking only at Frontier/Frontier-era not quite.

The 29 has (4) Variants with;

Alto

30th Anniversary

Isamu

Ozma

This will be the 5th. The 25 already has (5) variants with;

25F

25G

25S

RVF-25

25A

But Bandai sure does love the 29, no doubt about that.

Exactly! But I figured that wouldn't be a fair comparison, especially since the VF-1 has variants from a tv show and movie. :lol:

Very nice. I don't need another Durandal but the low vis colors with yellow/orange highlights are so tempting.

Don't forget the YF-25 which is mostly the same except for some minor changes in the cockpit, canopy, and sensor array forward of that.

That's why I didn't include it, especially with the modified cockpit but I guess if I count the RVF which has a radome the yf-25 should be included too.

So (6) 25's to (4) + (1) pending 29's.

I really like it but will not buy it most probably after my bittersweet experience with YF-29 30th Anniversary's both arms snapping

Breaking 29' arms is impressive.

Yeah, add me to the surprised list re: the Anniversary 29 as well.

So...is it too soon to start whining for Fighter Mode pics of the 29B? Cause, that's what I really want to see before making a mental commit to buy.

Guest davidwhangchoi

maybe we the canopy will be similar color with the sensors on the chest?

yeah, i'm thinking the same thing but how transparent will the color be. for ozma it was heavy blue for alto it was a light tint where it's easy to see the pilot. the vf-19 advance has a heavy tint.

Heavy probably. Most of the recent releases by Bandai have been heavy tints.

I love it, she looks great! The colors are fantastic.

And yeah looks like she has the bayonet. I guess that's fine, I kinda liked it but i wish it was unique to just Isamu.
