a VF-11 will probebly come with both the super pack boosters and the SFBs so they can pad the box out and justify charging the same price as the YF-19.

I feel like the 21 could stand to be 5~10% larger. I just think the  YF-21 should be taller than the YF 19.

I noticed that the 1st time too, then realised the 19 somehow sits higher on its adapter, compared to the 21.

Yeah, in my mind the 21 always seemed larger than the 19 somehow, but maybe am not paying attention.

Maybe if they put them both on the ground standing would be a better comparison.

The YF-21 (and the VF-22) does not have hard points on the wings coz it does not carry missiles on its wings.

this looks dumb, where is this from?

Looks like a Zentradi half plane.  Kinda don't make sense to make it look like an alien if a human is piloting it.

That's kinda the point, supposed to be reminiscent of the zentradi pods.

 

Also the pilot is a zentradi.

Vertical video 

 

That video is awesome! And after watching this, my conclusion is that I would be happy if the nose got a few tweaks: a bit longer, and a complete rework of the shape.

Think the shape isn't that far off, but the canopy needs a rework.  Narrowing the canopy toward the front would help the nose shape a lot, I think it's not tapered enough vertically.

Really can't say I'm feeling the gigantic engines yet, but maybe in time.  :huh:

The good thing about MW is we have all the best animators, producers, designers, commenters, followed, artists, engineers, manufacturers and many more.

Finally they made it!

Don't like Yamato shapes, think Dx has more solid legs and feet. 

Defenetly in it. Maybe two, maybe waiting for 22.

Wings won’t have hardpoints because, if you’ll recall, the 21 used MAW (mission adaptive wing) technology to change their camber and deflection. Don’t think that would play nice with inflexible stores. 
 

What this SHOULD come with are the FAST packs and gunpods, as well as a fold booster and, maybe, the ability to remove the arms and legs for delimiter mode. Maybe. 
 

Oh, and we need a Tamashii Web Exclusive X-9 Ghost. And some new figures of Isamu, Guld, Myung, and Sharon wouldn’t go wrong.

I dont have a site, and all photographs I posted here were taken by me, or in one case by the friend who was with me at TN2019. I'm asking nicely that you do not repost my or others images to promote your own site.

Fair. Then it was an inaccurate assumption on my end and I apologize.

Battroid looks about as close as you could get without the legs getting in the way of everything (minus the terrible elbows that have already been discussed.)  But the shape of fighter mode between the nose being shaped wrong (which does affect the look of Battroid) and the back half is considerably incorrect.  The placement of the vertical stabilizers are too far forward.  The legs may be longer in figher mode, the Bandai 19 is guilty of this as well.  The stabilizers seem oversized eightwise too, probably to match/obfuscate the oversized brick on the back.  At least they're proportionally the same as the lineart even if they are larger. 

The tampo on this is far less obnoxious than on the 19.

These additional pictures are clearing up a lot of my concerns about fighter mode. Wish we had a front-end fighter profile picture, though.

I wish it would have been in a better spot in the display for more angles, especially the back of Battroid.

hmm not sure , it seems to me the height is spot on, loved that Bandai didn't put those skinny legs from previous releases found in Yamato's versions:
