Huh? You prefer all white valks with one stripe of color because they are LESS bland?
Yeah, the striped DYRL valks are no less boring than the TV 1A's. At least the TV-1A's have a different pattern than the 1J's.

But what really makes the DYRL 1A's and 1S's so bland is that we've seen so much of them in toy form from Yamato. The first 1/60's were the DYRL 1A's & 1S, and then the first 1/48's were the DYRL 1A's & 1S. I'm sick of them. The Max TV 1A has never existed as a toy, which makes it special, and, come on, it's freaking Max Jenius. I think Macross fans would go nuts for Max's TV 1A.

If Yamato doesn't do this with these new 1/60's, they are really missing out on the market potential here. I'm sure there are a lot of worldwide fans who would love to see the TV Max and Kakizaki get made with the correct TV VF-1A heads on them. Not to mention the VF-1A CF and Angelbirds with the right TV head for a change.

Honestly though...and I hate to say this, I'm pretty sure they won't though, which is really sad. I'm almost 100% certain what they will do is release the same things that they did with the 1/48's, only they will throw in the VF-1D, VT, and VE valks in there. And yes, that includes the Low Vis 1 and 2 as well as the Stealth 1J.

Yeah, I know...some of you are thinking "The low vis 1 was a limited release, they won't make it again". Which you'd be wrong, because that promise only covers the 1/48 line. Trust me, they're going to do it. If they don't, it would really surprise me.

it's just stylistic differences

using the earlier picture, alot of people like the look of the TV 1A head because it's what we're used to seeing. Toynami's version is pretty close if you remove the outer ring.

I'll probably only get a VF-1S in 1/60 when it comes out myself. Just to fill out my 1/60 line.

Now, if they make the TV Max and Kazikaki with the correct head, then I'll have to get them and a VF-1J Hikaru.

Else, it's just the Focker. I'm running out of display space and I'm starting a more expensive hobby

Meh on the dyrl head vs the tv Head. The tv 1A head reminds me too much of the 1/55 Bandai 1A's, which isn't a good thing. The DYRL 1a heads look better anyway. Didn't Toynami have TV color schemes for Max and Kakizaki errr Ben?? The TV color schemes for these 2 would be wasted releases for Yamato, because I'd bet that they would be poor sellers. I'd like to see them come up with either a new custom scheme or a Minmay guards scheme.

I got Focker, Hikaru, Max and Kakizaki in Dyrl colors in 1/48 so no way am i getting anymore Dyrl in 1/60....except VT and VE ofcourse.

If they come out im getting Hikaru 1J, Max 1A, kakizaki 1A, Vf-1D and a CF 1A in TV colors.

I may also get a Miria 1J with Fastpacks to stand next to my other VF's for scale comparison since her's lasted all the way into M7.

If these 1/60 can pose like Gundam Perfect grades, then I'd buy them. Movable/Bendable hip joints would be good too.

Yamato needs to reverse the order of valkyries and start out with the VE, VT and VF-1D with these 1/60 versions...put out the 1S, 1A, 1Js last.

Wow! I was so busy moving and then the holidays, and now I come back and find out about a whole new PT VF-1 line.

I didn't supported those who demanded for a new 1/60 VF-1 line, because I knew that if Yamato did a good job on those I'd have to buy the whole line. I don't own a VF-1 line, just a couple of Valks from various manufacturers, but I always wanted a perfect transformation Elint and Super Ostrich, so I'm afraid I'll have to add these to my already long wish list. The good news is that I don't own any of the previous 1/60 VF-1's, so it's not like I'm buying the same toy again.

I have a question for Graham tho': Since Yamato has already designed the two seaters and they will focus on the DYRL versions (as always), and given that the VF-1D has a different canopy from the Super and Elint, does that mean we won't see that one on this line also? Or will Yamato just repaint a DYRL two seater as a VF-1D down the road? I'm asking this because I've always had a soft spot for the 1D.

My guess is that for the 1D, all Yamato will be doing is 1) make a different canopy, 2) new heatshield, 3) new head. Everything else about the 1D is the same as the rest of the single seater VF-1s. If Yamato went with the same body as a VE/VT-1 it wouldn't be a VF-1 at all, and we'd pitchfork them for it. :p

Everyone would buy them if that's the case, BUT there is no way they would be like Perfect grade, I don't even think they will be as poseable as Master Grades. I am happy if they are poseable like the GFF's or better yet like HCM Pros, I am hoping for better hands, like moveable fingers would be great and hopefully the legs are fixed up and won't be limited to hitting the back of the wings.

I cannot agree with you on the movable fingers :p but if they came with posed TV hands that would be SWEET!!!

There are a few more differences. The whole nose/forward fuselage assembly differs in length and proportion, as does the chestplate, back hatch, and backplate, in addition to what you mention.

I want to see a VF-1D before the ELINT and Super O, though I'd buy those too. The VF-1D would make an excellent toy, and it is memorable. It would make an excellent choice as a low viz. Me personally, I don't want a low viz based on the 1/48, I want a low viz scheme that is Tomcat based this time around(the 1/48 low viz was based on an F-15 Eagle low viz scheme).

For a high viz valk, I want a tiger meet version.

Also, I had no idea the TV and DYRL VF-1A heads were different. No wonder the VF-1A looked bad ass in DYRL!(I've always thought that DYRL made the VF-1A bad ass, its a beaut in it!)

f'n just release them all! I dont care what comes first or last... I just want to enjoy these by the time I fricken retire... haha. Actually they did really well releasing the 1/48s. If they had the 2 seaters in mind then we woulda had them by now. To think that in that span of time since they released it to now, I'm still trying to catch up.

But yeah... mix it up a bit... don't bore us with the same old pattern... 1 seater then 2... then 1... then 2.

And I dont think the TV Max and Kakizaki are boring... considering most real jets are mostly one color... and it's grey. <insert rolly eyed smiley here!>

Yep they are important, well Max is, Kakizaki isn't. I'm surprised the guy even got a 1/48 DYRL release, considering he was barely in the movie.

OOOOOO I just thought about it, with the double jointed elbows, the new 1/60 should be able to replicate Max's pose after he had just gunned Milia down. I hope this has double jointed knees too.

12 Steps:

1. Anger (WTF? Another line of 1/60s?)

2. Sadness (What am I gonna do with the old ones)

3. Obsession (Keep looking at pics)

4. Ebay (Looking thru collection to see what you can sell)

5. Indecision (Do I really need these?)

6. Back to Anger (Dammit! Why'd they have to make these?)

7. Denial (What new 1/60s? I don't see a thread about them...)

8. Interest (Well they do look kinda cool...)

9. Warming to idea (Maybe if I just get one...)

10. Acceptance (I'll buy 4 of 1st release, one for each mode and MISB)

11. Purchase (Pre-orders early bird)

12. Back to Anger (Man this canopy is too bubbly)

not to mention the 13th stage... Deficit...

Man, I'm already at about step 10.

I feel like the fat girl crying in the shower while eating donuts.

:wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

definitly didn't go through step 1, 5, 6, 7, 8 or nine. I've been wanting a updated 1/60th VF-1 for a while now. My only problem is what to do with my crappy 1/60ths. Of all the things to survive the fire that wiped out most of my collection 2 years ago.

Steps 3 & 11 are me, straight up. I've been wanting perfect transforming 1/60 VF-1's ever since Yamato's 1/60 VF-0's. It became apparent that Yamato had finally chose the 1/60 scale and was sticking to it.

So for me, there's no hesitation or second guessing this. If they keep these around $100 a whack I'm getting every Goddamned VF-1 they come out with. Cannon, non-cannon, I'll take them all with a smile on my face and an forver empty wallet in my pocket.

I just hope that its cheapest of the 1/60s that have been coming out so far.

I as well...but we all know.....no matter how much they are.....people here will still buy them up like hot cakes...okay like "oh my god......I can't believe how cool it is".......what I'm saying, is that Yamato is going to make a killing..... :ph34r:

I have been one of the few people always against a new 1/60th line and still kind of am. I am not going to buy a lot and i love my 1/48s more than what i have seen here. But i will only buy the ones they didn't make as 1/48s, like two seaters and if they every make the vermillions squadron VF-1A colors. Other than that i am not that excited by them. Actually more disappointed i feel that it was a waste for me to shell out my life saving on valks only for them to be reissued in the original size for a cheaper prices. Oh well. I should also finally get a Q-Rau soon before people start lookking for those to go with their valks.

I am not happy they are making the 1/60th better than the 1/48th, but i wont sell my 1/48, will be buying special 1/60 such as a low vis if they make it!!!! But still, i want all my valks to be same size (i dont care about consistencies), and the only toy i have that is nice, but smaller is my starscream and my master grade models (if you notice, they are sorta same size as 1/60 vf-1). Stuff like MP Optimus and Megatron, as well as 1/60th vf-0 and yf-19 all go well with the 1/48th vf-1 on the shelf.

Lmao...I hope the buyer stays blissfully ignorant about the new 1/60 line, otherwise they may end up kicking themselves. :lol:

-Kyp

True that....the only 2 I will get are Max & Millia.....unless of course the 2 seaters are there as well. Even then....damn....I will have to see just how cool they really are.

Is this a for sure price or just a guess? I can't imagine for a second that they are going to be anywhere near $100. Think more in the $150+ range.
