1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker


Recommended Posts

Just got my roy focker cockpit as well. This diorama is gorgeous!!

However after owning all 3 cockpits the roy focker is my least favorite. The paint and quality control is probably the worst of the 3. And roy looks really funny cuz his body is so small.

Also i dont know if it is the screen itself or the video file that was chose for roy but it looks to be a lower resolution or quality to it :(

Surprisingly the max cockpit has the best quality control. Its flawless. Maybe because it was so limited they had more time to build it? Surprisingly the shade of blue is not as bright as in the proto pics. A darker shade with the mass release. 

Even the shade of paint and even some of the color of the lights varied from all 3 releases. Especially rick hunter being the most different from the max and roy cockpit. 

I could see the rick hunter being more sought after later on cuz he was the initial release with its own unique perks....

That's dedication to get all three of them. What are the issues with Roy's version?

Unless you’re asking a specific one, I believe @carlodibi already mentioned the issues on his Roy’s copy. ;)

Yeah I was looking for more specifics on the paint and quality control. If the paint is sloppy or something.

The roy focker is obviously revised since the rick version. Some of the paints used inside the cockpit is not as nice. Rick edition has more of a gunmetal look than just flat black paint. And the weathering is nicer on the rick edition. Different shade of paint on the rick console as well. 

The cockpit hinge for roy has been remolded to be a little thicker in some areas.

Very few lights differ in color as well.

Thanks. I wonder if this will be it now for the lineup?

I would get a brownie if they made it. 

Be careful what you wish for. Looks like you need to start saving now. ;)

Maybe it’s a CF VF-1J with Rick.

While possible it is the laziest and easiest way to produce this.

I would rather much have a true CF pilot with a light sequence that makes it appear to explode.

Probably that's only a stand-in. Would be nice if they had shown some pilot that wears a green/teal striped helmet and green/blue/teal striped uniform like a regular CF pilot in the series.

if they also did my body proportions, I would not fit in the cockpit.

Well, Toynami certainly doesn't care about body proportions...

Question for anyone with the Hikaru 1/6 figure, are the feet installed properly? There's one for sale here with the feet installed backward and I'm just wondering if that's a prevalent issue.

Hey guys,

I'm thinking of getting this cool cockpit but don't want to spend too much for it. My question is Is the Speaker/bluetooth version really worth that much? Or more of a gimmic? Is the reissue the same exact as the original release? Whats your thoughts and opinion about the two version? Also whats a good cockpit to collect VF1J Or VF1S? 

Also I like the fact it came with an extra Skull Canopy with the reissues.  Any thoughts

Thanks
