As everyone knew, the newer DX toys are coming out with a hardpoint already as part of the design. This lead to the inreased price of the Armor Parts of the VF-171 (while the General machine is preferred since it comes with a pair of Reaction missile and a pair of Fold weapon missile). I do feel that the missile in the armor part looks out of place since these are the same design used in Macross Zero.
From my observation, there has been a lot of request and there has been speculation that Bandai "might" release a add-on pack. Unfortunately, years have gone and we never really got one. I have been talking to @Xigfrid lately on having to release AMM-101 (similar design in the Hasegawa 25 kit) release a model for shapeway. I think he is almost done with the modeling of the Missile but still have yet to work on the weapon pylon part.
This thread will be used to discuss on the improvement on the 3D file Xigrid is requesting for further revisions on how it will be easier to complete the model and maybe further missile request.
I am attaching the photo's shared by @jvmacross as reference.
