Looks very nice.

Can't wait for the 2 seaters!

Looks like the poll that was held to remake the 1/60 has paid off..

Only thing is it needs GBP side parts as standard: come on yamato.... You know Robot mode is what people will pose this toy in.

YOU CAN BET ON IT! Hot dog that looks sweet. I wonder if those are stickers are tampo printing? Either way this a very nice representation of the VF-1. Look at those nice meaty hands!!! SOMEONE HAS GOT MAN hands now!

Oh My.....VERY NICE!!! I can't wait for the M&M's. There will be few I will buy from this line but the Jenius' are at the top of my list.

Kick ASS! Very very sweet lookin ride. Notice the back hinge? Theres a split in the middle or something that looks to lock it.....hard to see.

Nose is a LITTLE stumpy, but not horridly so. Also looks better on the side on angle, so it may be a distortion on the photo.

And Lurker: I display in fighter mostly :) Just sayin ;)

Charger69, Domo Arigato Gozai mas!!!

I love the battroid. I will have to compare in person but from the looks of it I am thinking that I like this battroid more than the 1/48. The 1/48 definitely looks better in fighter mode though. However I preffer the look of this in Gerwalk mode to the 1/48 in Gerwalk. Again, just from the photos here. To know for sure will have to compare in person.

I am really excited about this now.

Now I am thinking it may be time to sell my 1/60 Milia. I just want confirmation that they will do milia in this new line though. But I am definitely keeping my 1/48 milia. Also if there is confirmation on the VF-1D I may have to sell my 1D as well.

There slight changes that have made this a better, but still not PT, VF-1.

I'm just not loving the locking peice for the backpack. Oh well, I guess.

Once Yamato is done taking our money for the second version of the 1/60 VF-1, they will announce a second version of the 1/48 VF-1. This time around, instead of Graham dropping a hint with his sig of "Saturation Penetration," it would read "Non-Lubrication Penetration." :o :o:wacko:

Just noticing that the lower portions of the legs look a little bit thin in battroid but not enough to make me not crave this beauty.

The nose is a bit small in fighter, yes but it looks great in battroid.

The arms just absolutely rock! I love them!

The side covers would be nice. Maybe for the one after the VF-1s Roy.

I want to see the pilot!

For the VF-1S I think it would be incredibly cool to have a TV Roy, TV, Hikaru, a DYRL Roy and a DYRL Hikaru! How absolutely sweet would that be?!!

To add to my insane fantasy, the VF-1D would come with Hikaru in his orange civilian flightsuit and two Minmei's, one for the back seat and one to be held in the hand, of course also come with an extra cockpit/nosecone/fuselage to recreate that scene when Roy saves them.

Would we get that? Could we get that? Doubt it but it would be really nice!

Still like the original 1/60 nose and cockpit better but the rest of the new 1/60 = win!

The original cockpit may have had a better shape but this one I think has a better detailed cockpit inside (at least it seems) and a clearer dome. It is a little bit bulky in shape but I personally prefer it so far for those reasons. Maybe once I have one and compare it I may change my mind!

looks great!

the backpack seems a bit slimmer than its 1/48 counterpart, which is a good thing, but what bothers me (at least a bit) is the backpack lock that can be seen from the front view of the gerwalk picture (picture #4)...wonder if its a separate piece?

charger69, thanks for the pictures. *Looks like the tampo print enthusiasts will be disappointed in this one -- look at all those stickers. At least this time around, the I hope crooked skulls on the v-stabs won't come from the factory.

* edit: Graham states we get tampo printing on the production models.

It looks amazing!

+ Battroid mode looks great because they shortened the nose a bit.

+ The arms are perfect. double jointed elbows!

+ Looks like they used die-cast on the shoulder joints.

+ I see a swing bar in the bottom view so it's deffinetly PT!

+ The legs are nice and long which makes for a beter representation of battroid mode.

+ Looks like they made the backback lock out of die-cast.

- The backpack is too flat

- The nose is a little short for fighter mode but it doesn't bother me too much.

- The knees aren't double jointed.

? Why are there hinges on the little leg flaps? future GBP?

wooo... I'm sold.

but the backpack's kinda off... they could have tapered the top a bit, so it doesn't look like squashed lunchbox, and i'm not too sure that new backpack clip's gonna stay in place. is there a reason they put it there instead of the back collar thingy?

plus the "horse shoes" look weird.

2 out of 10, not bad. considering the 1/48 has its weak points too

HAIL TO THE NEW 1/60, BABY!

Sigh..........................we go through this with every single new toy.

That's a preproduction hand painted sample. They don't do tampo printing on hand painted preproduction samples.

The production version will of course have tampo printing.

And yes it will come with a pilot. The pilot sculpt was not ready and/or not approved when these pics were taken.

And in reply to post #704, NO THE BLOODY LEGS ARE NOT DETACHABLE! next person to ask if they are detachable or removeable gets an instant 1 week ban! What part of perfect transformation to you people not understand, huh?

Not so much they shortened the nose, rather it uses VF-0 type transformation so that the nose doesn't hang down past the knees in battroid mode.

Graham

I see now. The heatshield is a little shorter than the one on the 1/48's and the back of the cockpit is visible just under the chin which means the whole front end moves up into the chest.

Kewl!! ^_^

what's that line that goes through the intake covers?(visible in the underside pic, but not in battroid)

and is it just me, or do the under-wing hard-points look kinda odd? like they are not round anymore?
