Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

At that scale I would expect an articulated pilot figure.

Considering they already have macross gals at the same scale to this valk  they need to make a Ranka Concert ver from the 2nd movie so that people can do this

Disappointed at the pilot. I would've preferred a TV Version one. 

What's wrong? From the very beginning we're already seeing Strike Pack on their prototype, so it's just proper that it's going to have a DYRL pilot, right?

True.

I had forgotten about the Strike Pack

I'm really starting to fear for the size of the box that this'll all be packed in

 

 

I thought the grey was the floor, not the tabletop!

A/J/S head parts confirmed

 

VF-1A's head laser turrets looks thicker than VF-1J and VF-1S combined. :unknw:

For a big scale like that why does it look like it's still lacking details?

A fine balance between a good representation of what we know and making up details to take advantage of the size.

Get the primer out, then the details or lack thereof will reveal themselves. As long as it doesn't go the way of current Gundam "details," I'm fine with whatever.

Frankly as long as it has good forms an proportions, small detail can be added by the modeler. Too much incorrect detail would be worse to deal with.

I can't put my finger on it, but the proportions seem off a bit. Like there are a few, small but incredibly significant details being overlooked. This is coming from someone that owns multiples of every iteration of vf-1 Valkerie kit in existence.

Keep wondering if regular hobby blade and clippers can handle this bad boy!

If not careful those extra large nubs become flyting projectiles during nub cleaning, would seriously recommend goggles during build....

The details do look minimum. The fan blades look shallow without having real blades, just engraved lines. What's with the heads? They should be separate from the fuselage piece. Not to mention the laser thicknesses? Then again, this is NOT the final kit we are looking at so take what you see with a grain of salt.- MT

I don't think the parts you see are the fan blades, but the afterburner ends.

And IMO this kit is designed with a minimal parts count for the more casual modeler, and to keep it somewhat affordable (we'll see about that...)

Looks like they aren't going to fix the proportions of the 1S head (lasers too close together)

 

The whole thing looks like the spiritual successor to the 1-/24 scale ARII kit that came out a million years ago, which also lacked a significant amount of detail.

True. I will understand if this is done in a smaller scale. But at this massive scale, it's not an excuse why it's not designed or scaled properly. <_<

Probably have to wait until Wonder Festival for any updates. That's where the initial announcement came from and all the subsequent big updates.
