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


Recommended Posts

I am legit debating on having a fire-sale of my entire backlog of unopened 1/72 VF-1s and just get one of those fighter-modes in 1/20

It looks like Hikaru's face is molded on in the inside surface of the clear helmet visor

But that's Roy, not Hikaru.  Hikaru never wore a yellow helmet in the film, nor did his Valkyrie have yellow stripes...

I think we'll need to correct the thread title, too.  :unsure:

True. They started announcing this kit 2 years ago as Hikaru's scheme but they keep on showing promo shots in Roy's scheme.

Well, the kit comes with all 3 heads, A/J/S, and the decals for both Hikaru and Focker. The figure runner themselves are only labeled Pilot Figure and not by name, but if you look at this shot of the visor, those are some big, tall eyes. They definitely look more like Hiraku's than Focker's.

C'mon now. We're just playing. It's obvious that the head and visor looks like Hikaru's face. But it just so happen that all they show as a finished product is Roy's scheme. And I'm pretty sure Tekering knows this too. ;)

They announced it as 'Hikaru' kit. Better display it with Hikaru scheme. ^_^

Whoah, the missiles have to be purchased separately?

Sure, we know there's a precedent for it -- the Hasegawa 1:48 weapon set, for example -- but I would've hoped at least some missiles were included in the main kit...

Nah, that's not surprising in the least, and I'm glad they went this route. Whenever I think of the VF-1 and basically all VFs, I think of naked wings. With or without Supers and Strikes, but definitely always clean wings.

Would be interesting to see this one finished in anime cel style. 

That sure is going to be one big expensive cel-shaded Gaohku. ^_^

Could you explain “Gaohku”?

That's just a more phonetically-accurate spelling of "gerwalk" (and frankly, makes about as much sense).

Still better than "guardian mode!"  <_<

I think we just got a 1/20 scale preview of how big the box will be at the latest Macross Modelers stream
 

 

The shipping costs of this kit are going to be terrifying ..

Any updates on when this month the kit's releasing?

There's no definite date posted yet. Most sites including MaxFactory says it's end of this month.

All I have seen confirmed are stickers ( as per the HLJ ) listing -- have they mentioned waterslide decals somewhere? I can imagine some extra aftermarket waterslides might be necessary anyways depending on what they might miss but it'd be nice to have a base set of them.
