Bandai Sv-262 DX valk

Recommended Posts

Fighter mode of 262 is much better than the Battroid to me. The Anubis/Jackal headscupt on battriod makes it more sinister.

Do you have the Slavos and the rest of the add on set for it @Slave IV?

Yeah, I have every DX Delta release so far. Some (most) of them multiples. Just haven’t opened some of the packs yet.

Edit: It's very close to each others pricing when everything is said and done once you see both  listings. ;)

Was dusting and doing some rearranging and noticed I never got a good 262 battroid pic.

Bandai where's my white 262? <_<

There is something really appealing about the 262 in battroid. I display it in that mode with the sword, shield, leg armor, and Lil Drakens (in flight on either side).

Wait a minute, that's a GREAT pic of the 262 in battroid!

I prefer having the Lil Drakens on in fighter mode, but they look great in all modes.

Haha thanks. :) People pretty much stopped using melee weapons and shields with the advent of firearms, and now we've come full circle. :lol:

Not sure if these had been posted before. Just found it from a Japanese Twitter. Someone actually build a model of this beautiful aircraft. Looks like modifying from SV-51.

... and the F-104 mecha from Shoji Kawamori. Does anyone know what art book is this?

 We briefly discussed this on April 8/2018 (over two years ago) on page 110.

Roid's plane pre-Draken: SV-154 in which Kawamori took some influences form the F-104.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_F-104_Starfighter 

Is this SV-154 a Hasewaga kit by any chance (or clobbered from other model kits)?

Looking very much like an extensive kitbash of several kits, including the Sv-51, Sv-262, and quite possibly chunks of any number of other aircraft.

Really makes me want one though, and I would be very curious to see the entire transformation for that design.

Definitely do like this in battriod mode inside the hanger @Saburo:good:

Hopefully that I'll get at least two of the Fext Hobby Sci-Fi 03 sets when this world wide situation is completely over (still haven't even ordered it when the announcement was made).

Beautiful @Saburo!  I almost forgot what it looked like in any other mode other than the aircraft which is what I have mine displayed in.  I do like the Gerwalk mode very much in this design.

Thank you @borgified!  Its pretty crazy times for all of us, I am sure that there will be a remedy and things will get back to normal.  My hope is that shipping will slowly ramp back up. 

I look forward to seeing your photos with the Sci-Fi 03 setup.

Thank you @wm cheng, I had forgotten what fighter mode looks like.  I have had mine displayed as Battroid since I did the photo set when the Lill Draken were release so many years ago.  I usually display in fighter but this is the one I didn't feel like transforming back because its a pain to do. :lol:  I am sure I will watch @jenius video when I eventually put it back to fighter. 

The Sv-262 gerwalk mode is awesome its so compact looking compared to the other valks.

GREAT pic @Saburo!  The Sv-262 doesn't get enough love! I'm in the same boat and am totally scared to try to put mine back to fighter or go to battroid! Mine's in a psuedo-gerwalk.

Thank you @derex3592!  I agree the Sv-262 needs move love.  Its one of the more photogenic Valk because of the gold accent.   I know eventually I will have to put it back to fighter so it can go back into the box for storage. :lol:

@Saburo I just pass on a nicely priced set on yahoo.jp, now you are making me regretting my decision. :(

I swear, the cooler a valk Bandai makes, the less likely they are to do the obvious repaints...

Yup, still waiting.  I'd take either Roid's or Mirage's.  (Prefer Roid's, I do like the Anubis-style head a lot) (plus it wouldn't need a remold like Mirage's would---if they won't even do a pure color-swap like Roid's, I have little faith of ever seeing the others)

There's a complete 262 Hs and the Lil'Draken set starting on 15k yen on FromJapan with 6:45:00 left before the auction closes.

The show's 4 years old now and the previous 262 came out 3 years ago. Pretty sure a DX white Draken isn't going to happen. Going to have to build a model kit if you want a white 262.

What? Bandai didn't complete a toy line? You don't say...

I am waiting as well, Maybe one day Roid's white 262Hs and on the slim chance they make the 262Ba (Pope Hat). :unsure:

It still surprising that Delta is 4 years old already, time has sure flown by.  I am still hoping that they'll release super parts for Arad and Chuck...  but I know its not going to happen.

Given the very lukewarm reception the 262 DX had I’d be surprised if they bothered with another one. 
 

maybe it’s a good candidate for a v2 in a few years. After the v3 25 and v2 29 and v3 27 everyone wants.

I'd buy the Bandai 1/72 white Draken kit, but they added extensive idol decals, which raised the price, and made it limited, which raised the price even more.  Thing goes for a ton of money nowadays.
