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.

its been repeatedly stated(like over 20 times now) that these will be about 10000 yen(straight from yamato's site) which is less than $100. i even put it in my sig. ;)

Heh......damn.....I totally did not see that either.....I was just sitting here hoping for under $100 and my dreams have come true.....at least thus far. :ph34r:

Again, why the hell would the charge more for something a lot smaller? If you are going to bring up the VF-0, like you did earlier, have you even seen the 2 side by side? The VF-0 is a giant in comparison. Even the article that said 10,000 yen may have actually said less than 10,000 yen.

What you are saying is like bandai charging the price of a PG Gundam for a MG Gundam. Its market suicide.

I'm wondering if a lot of people here don't have a 1/60 VF-1, and don't realize just how small it is compared to the new "giant" 1/60 valks like the Sv-51 and YF-19. The *1/48* VF-1 is dwarfed by the Sv-51. The 1/60 VF-1 looks like it's a baby that'll some day grow up into a valk when put next to a Sv-51.

^ i think a lot of the confusion is because people have a hard time understanding the differences between scale and size.

I for one have owned both a VF-1 1/60 and a VF-0 1/60 in the past so I am aware of the size differences ^_^ .....but I have been looking at the Yamato site for a bit now trying to find anything on the new 1/60 VF-1's and I cannot read Japanese so I do not know where to look. I would like to see the dimensions for the new one if anyone has seen them. :ph34r:

They should be the same as scale is scale.

But the thing that weirds me out is that the VF-1's are actually that smal and it doesn't seem right at all as real planes are freaking huge. I guess the zero's addressed the scale issue as the redesign of the VF-1. Now we'll see what size the pilots are going to be. LOL.

For those that don't know just how small a 1/60 VF-1 is.

For those that don't know what a VF-1 is, it's the red one.

Your right.....if it's a 1/60 and the new VF-0's are that big......the VF-1's should be that big too.....or maybe just a tiny bit smaller.....no the same size as the old ones. :ph34r:

:lol:

being that they are the same scale and same model, i'm gonna take a wild guess and say that the new 1/60 VF-1 will be the same size as the old 1/60 VF-1. :D

Yeah, but check this out.

WTF? 1/55 to 1/60. I know the old chunkies are way wrong in every way possible but 5% diff equals that? Wish I can look at a real VF to verify scale LOL. I guess we'll have to take Yamato's word for it.

What really wouldn't seem right is how big a Mospeada Legioss would be at 1/60 scale. It would make the VF-1 seem LARGE. The idea back in the 80s, amongst certain designers at least, was that with technology came the ability to make everything we have now much smaller and much better simultaneously. It seems that Macross kind of started in that direction before swinging back the opposite way to "bigger is better"

. . . unless SK decides to tweak the size a little, like in the case of the 1/72 (1/6x) scale VF-11. :mellow:

Yes we need a real VF-1 to compare. I am okay with that. And the chunkies are NOT way wrong damn you lol...I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY.......I just hope that they are at least as big as the chunky monkey or the VF-0 size will be okay too. I LOVE THE CHUNKY MONKEY

Have you seen the PS2 vs. the PS3? LOL. It defenitely did not get smaller as technology grew.

Well in that picture, the 1/60 is standing with spread legs, shortening the height a little bit. The other two can't even spread their legs, and why does that sound so wrong? :p

the funny thing is scale changes all the time...

i.e. if a girl is 5'6", and she has B size breasts, they wouldn't be big but they would be in scale to her frame.

but if a girl was 6' tall and had the same B size breasts, they would look tiny and not in scale to her frame.

whats my point? nothing other than i prefer size over scale. :D

*head explodes*

And DND, thanks...now every time I look at woman I'm going to wonder to myself if her breasts are in scale with her body. :D

Just run around with a rubber stamp the reads "1/60". Tag 'em when you see 'em.

boys boys boys.

Finger painting.

Nuff said.

To return to the topic at hand, while i know the VF-1 will be smaller and thus cost less, Inm surprised that Yamato didnt jack the cost back up by including a stand and maybe FAST Packs right off the cuff. i mean Id pay an extra few dollars to have it all in one conveniant package....

Love to have it all in one pack, but i guess they will want to bring the FP/Stirke set as a standalone...

But for special releases like Max and Millia (1J's) and the VT-1 and VE-1 they will HAVE to have their FP's/Parts included coz they are special.

All the rest i'd doubt they would have Super or Strike parts bundled together. But we could dream.

WHAT I WANT IS A BETTER BOX SET-UP AND FIRE THAT LAZY BOX ART DESIGNER AND BRING BACK THE OLD DESIGNER WHO DID THE ORIGINAL 1/60 VF-1 BOX ART. THAT MAN KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING!!! THEY LOOKED AWESOME! PLEASE??!

while releasing the FPs seperately would follow in yamatos previous footsteps, do you know how small a 1/60 scale FP kit would be? its pretty tiny, theres not much to it, and i doubt they'd be able to cram in the details of the 1/48 FP kit. for its size, i don't think they'd even want to bother creating box art for it, let alone seperate packaging.

my hopes are they'll release every valk with the FPs as they could up the price and guarantee sales of the FP kits instead of hoping they sell individually for whatever ridiculous asking price they come up with.

its been repeatedly stated(like over 20 times now) that these will be about 10000 yen(straight from yamato's site) which is less than $100. i even put it in my sig. ;)

Is that with or without FP's?

it didn't say on the yamato site and graham didn't mention it.

i'm sure when graham gets clearance or it shows up in a magazine, we'll all be informed. :)

this is macrossworld after all and all the late breaking news comes through here first! B))

If they go for that much with FAST packs, I'll be much more inclined to attempt at nabbing as much of the line as I can. Without...well, yeah. A couple here and there maybe. Possibly just one or two to display along with my other 1/60 Valkyries.

How much did the first 1/60 VF-1 toys go for? I recall picking them up my DYRL Max 1A for about $60.

I am totally down for them coming with FP's as well as one coming with GBP armor (I have seen this one the old ones). Now if a non-FP 1/60 (a new one) went for $60. I sure the hell would get a few.

i'm hoping they'll package 'em with the FP's.

it would make more sense to just include FP's with the ones that should have 'em. just like the Max & Milla.

everybody knows DYRL 1S' come with strike packs, so just sell 'em as Strike Valks. right?

imagine if they sold the FP's separate, would you really shell out the 'traditional' 6000 yen on a box of parts half the size of the original FP set? ...box size debatable :lol:

6,800 yen

Being that the original 1/48 FP set was 6,400 yen give or take, its doubtful that the price for new FP's would be what you would call "traditional". More like "half the price".

Heh thanks for the price in yen, right after I posted I was thinking the higher price might be due to the deflating dollar, but no it really is a jump. I really hope they come with FAST packs.

Just box art for the VF-1's, not box art for the FP's... :p but if they reduce the size of the box by a third (comparing to the old VF-1 1/60 boxes, i'd be happy with a lack of box art.... but still!
