These are just some of the 16 total mini kits that came packed inside the Morinaga Choco-corn candy boxes....they are extremely difficult to find in either built or unbuilt, boxed or unboxed condition.  Model kits are one of the Macross collectible categories that I do not generally collect, however, these Morinaga mini kits are so cool and quirky that I had to make an exception for them!

These kits do not seem to be created from the same molds as their similar small scale ARII, IMAI or Nichimo couterparts, all of which are far superior in terms of detailing.  To me, they look like something Ohsato would have created but as of now I cannot be certain of this.

More info on the various kits released by Morinaga, including the Macross series of kits, can be found here:  http://gundam-morinaga.com/

I think the "modern" take on these would be all those mini Macross fighter collections...like these...

and some of the various Macross gashapon...like the Missions series and others....

I do not have any of the new Delta mini kits...Mecha Colle series.....but those are close to being gashapon/kit....
