Okay, four things...

1. Impressive Macross 7 collection.

2. Fold boosters can attach to the VF-17?

3. Are you applying those FlightPose display stands directly to your valkyries' undersides, or do you have the rubber tips covered with something to prevent toy degradation?

4. Sound boosters can clamp onto the VF-17 in fighter mode? Is that ever done in the show?

1. Thank you, old vid new one has more ladies in the shelves.DEF12705-8F60-4659-B73D-CA5B1EBA3BAB.thumb.jpeg.70201bc910e1ce59af6c679c259e1eeb.jpeg982A5011-755C-446D-A2C9-A2D3B8E4942A.thumb.jpeg.4a6ee1158cd8ef493933bcba4c5117fa.jpeg

2. Not really but you can play with it to attach to the valk. I’ve only seen it in the show unattached 5BC5EEA9-D0EF-49FA-889D-2823A0DF8BA1.jpeg.16bf2b8b672f850b3b8e3123301af153.jpeg

3. I have not had any degradation with the clear tips but I’ve seen them happen with the dark tips. It also depends on how warm the room is which can contribute to the degradation. I try to keep it cool in there since there isn’t any sunlight going in.

4. I don’t think it’s possible and I have not tried it but there was a VF17T in the show in Sound Force with its custom speakers piloted by Ray and Veffidas

@Slave IV: There's a Sivil model kit and now long gone from Manda -  https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1085557355&ref=list

I'm sure that you can find one if you poke around online. Just finished watching Macross 7 not long ago. Haven't seen the OVA or the other offerings yet.

Thanks! I do remember seeing that before. Hopefully someday they make a statue I don't have to paint myself or better yet, an SHF/Figma style action figure.

Thanks Kicker! I'm thinking also if I should upgrade ours due to my ever-growing clutters. ^_^

Quick question. Is that a customed 1/72 Hasegawa VF-1 Minmay Special Valk behind the Minmay figures?

Why is it I feel like Sheryl Nome is missing, wearing her Macross Frontier episode 1 concert outfit? And her final episode outfit too.

Might be partly because of the angle of the picture but yes, the three in the center are angled down more. Whatever the case, it looks good and not angled oddly in any way from where I sit and look at it from across the room. Thanks!

For anyone interested in adding a shelf or shelves to their IKEA Detolf. I bought a locker shelf from Amazon that includes two essentially upside U shaped legs for this purpose and it came out great. I secured it with Velcro tie wraps around the leg and the internal wire frame of Detolf. I also put rubber pads on top of each support to grip the glass shelf.

IMG_5153.JPG.c18617b1716577b4226be795d029424c.JPG

With the shelf on its 100% sturdy and not going anywhere.

IMG_5156.thumb.JPG.71377b42faeedf2a91e9836f07d21b85.JPG

So where do you get the actual extra shelf?  Well I wound up with three extra Detolf shelves as one of the metal rod frames was bent so when I called IKEA they actually just sent me the whole box that includes all the pieces with that part (Detolfs come in two separate boxes with different pieces). So I had the two glass sides and three glass shelves in addition to part I needed. So I made three additional shelves. I'm going to add a few more later. There are online places you can order pieces of glass from cut to your size specs which is where I'll get additional shelves from. Or also IKEA makes extra glass shelves for their "Billy" bookshelves that are not the same size (slightly smaller) but can also fit they're just not as deep.

Cool but am I the only one confused about what I'm looking at? It's really hard to tell how the shelves are setup in the detolf and I'm not even sure I'm looking at a detolf.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Great figures are in here, but they get lost because everything is crowed together. Just my personal tastes that show casing your figures is the ultimate presentation and representation of that character. Your pieces are art and in turn they should be displayed as such. Each having their own space and place in the case.

I am going to rearrange everything but this was just after I put shelf in. This picture might better illustrate.

IMG_5156.thumb.JPG.730f70d1443e44586769bf4066244e36.JPG

I'm not recommending anyone to do this unles it makes sense for their display. I see some ppl using a whole Detolf to display a total of 4 Hot Toys figures and that's cool. I personally have to make use of all the room I can as to do a display like that with all that I have I'd need about 500 Detolfs lol.  It also appears more crowded as I have the door closed in these pics and there is also a Detolf behind this one. I have 4 of them in middle of the room side by side and back to back facing away from each other.

I've got them both myself, though the 19 is still in the mail. They're hard to find nowadays.

Need to get a Macross Plus display case set up at some point.

Ah, it makes more sense now but it still doesn't even look like a detolf to me. Maybe it's the lights, reflections and other things behind it that are throwing me off.

I totally get your need for space and filling in what you have. Thanks for clarifying and seems to work well.

Everyone confused because it isn’t a detolf, more a combined detolf. Some countries have something similar to a detolf but clearly that’s a wider detolf causing confusion for everyone.

Or you can just buy those U shaped clamps at Home Depot for like 2.00 and adjust shelves to make taller items fits 031EFEC3-2C52-4883-8185-1972DAC9B8E3.thumb.jpeg.8337e689b66dc22ebde1bef1e1c4cd01.jpeg

No it's a regular Detolf just like you have. I have 4 total in this room. Two next to each other facing one way and behind those two, two more next to each other behind them facing other way. The lights and close up of pic are confusing everyone.  Those clamps are also a good idea and I considered something like that as well but I didn't want to risk clamps slipping. Looks great though.

Awesome collection.  That Daedalus would look lovely with HMR.
