PLAMAX 1/20 VF-25, YF-29 and VF-31

Recommended Posts

I suppose this means the VF-1 fighter kit pre-orders have been selling well...

...and we'll probably be seeing more "Minimum Factory" pilot figures from Frontier and Delta (and fewer DYRL characters as a result).  <_<

It seems they'v only printed the noses so far and stuck them onto clear plastic sheets

Interesting, though next time I've learned my lesson, waiting to get those until there's a "free shipping" promotion somewhere.

You're lucky that you're just waiting for a free shipping promotion. Whereas me, I worry where to put it that's why I didn't bother getting the VF-1. :rolleyes:

Hm... I have a suspicion that those noses are actually indicative of the final products. No full models from here on out, just the noses to complement the figures. I dunno how I feel about that.

Nice to see Mirage getting some love. But STILL, I wish they'd just scale these up a bit. Everything else about them looks great, it's just the minuscule size of them...

I know exactly what you're going through. All my stuff is sitting in piles of boxes right now for lack of space to even build anything. Finally was able to buy a condo, but haven't moved in yet.

Just imagine how much space it would take to display 5 1/20 VF-31's.

It's obviously a "pick just ur favorite waifu's VF-31" and leave it at that :0

So, are they going to cheap out again, and only offer stickers for all of them? <_< Frankly speaking, those sculpts look fairly terrible, especially the VF-25.  Misshapen, under-detailed for the size, and just plain off-model.

Have to agree though, the idea of just making the noses as a display piece for pilot figures makes a bit more sense.

On the other hand, I'd be all over a 31A or YF-19 kit. ^_^

1/20 YF-19 kit would be an instant buy, so long as it wasn’t horribly malformed.

I'd consider these if they had clear canopies and fully detailed cockpits and the option to have the gear closed and decals and good pilot sculpts and good surface details...

Guess I would not consider these...

It'd need a YF-21 and a Ghost to go with it... I'd need a whole room for that :)

Okay, so it's confirmed then that these really are just the nose cones, right?

Bonus points if you include actual broken windows, too.

No. Why would they suddenly switch to that?

These are rough 3D prints with zero information aside from IN DEVELOPMENT plaques, but that's pretty much exactly how the VF-1 development cycle went. The only difference so far is VF-1 started with a cardboard cutout silhouette before proceeding to a very rough 3D print of the nosecone some months later and more and more 3D prints for a ~2 year period.

So don't bother preparing your wallets until 2021.

I ask because the HLJ Twitter refers to a "Minimum Factory Nose Collection."

The plaques say something about nose assemblies when translated.

nose assemblies seem a whole lot more feasible.

Hopefully, since they are only concentrating on the nose assembly they could add a ton of great detail to it. Opening canopy, maybe a helmet to match, water slide decals, and opening panels at various access points.
