This is amazing. I want. I see a bit of VF-1 and VF-25 in the shape of the fighter, a little VF-25 and VF-19 in the transformation, and a whole lot of awesome throughout. If/When this goes into production...

Loving this, can't wait until you start printing it out.  What kind of printer will you be using?  And, will you be putting the STLs up for the rest of us?

Wow. Congratulations on having a great idea and seeing it through to completion! Is it too late to request a female pilot option?

Are these going to be 1/60 scale? This one looks amazing, I can't wait to see the other styles!

 Gotta chime in for this...These designs are absolutely blood raw!

Is there a possibility of seeing these done in a scale comparable to the Yamato 1/48ths?  If your size is bigger than a 1/60 VF-1, I might buy into these after seeing the final product.  

Well done sir, well done.

Whoa, wait a minute IamChris...did I just read "60 cm/23.622 in." in fighter mode? 

That's freaking waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy longer than a 1/48 VF-1 in fighter by almost twice the margin!! 

OK you gotta make this happen now; cool innovative designs, unbelievable articulation, hella weapons options, and...wait for it...BIGGER than a Yamato 1/48 in fighter?...

If you can get top quality & decent pricing as part of the formula, then consider me $OLD!!

I think he means the exploded view of every single part laid out is 60cm long

Pretty sure he means fighter mode is 60cm long. This is a transforming GI Joe Skystriker!

Don't want to contemplate the cost.

sorry anime52k8 that i have not stated clearly that the fighter mode length is 60cm.

What scale is this supposed to be in? 60cm is absolutely massive even at 1/48 scale.

yes, i have contacted third party china and taiwan manufacturers. estimate cost between 450usd-600usd. T_T

can get more pre-orders, price able to adjust lower(factory)....

ouch. I think the best thing to do if you want to actually get this manufactured and sold would be to simplify the design a bit. if you worked on simplifying some of the mechanisms and ditch some of the extravagant features you could seriously cut the parts count which will drive down the manufacturing costs a lot.

Could you render a video of this sexy beast spinning around in each mode and transforming? I'd love to see some of those mechanisms in action, but three digits before the decimal point is basically "nope forever" for me as far as being able to buy one is concerned.

 

re-edit: on second thought, this is a better example

We can’t let this thread die! @IamChris are you still on this project or can you make more 3D renders? 

I mean that the official release have nothing exiting to me, Arcadia takes their sweet time (3 years now?) to get a V2 mold out, Bandai is releasing the same thing again and again in different paint since 2-3 years. Third parties makes 1:72 diecast VF-1S, or Yamato copies...

At least this project is something freshening for Macross fans
