1/60 perfect transforming vf-1 from yamato?

If they do tv series valks I wonder if they will have bubble hands?

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

Maybe even chuck in a hikaru figure standing upon the shoulder of the vf-1d looking down. So in battroid mode you have him in a "WTF?! it's a robot!" expression. I dunno, the "cola kid" would be pretty good to have too. Haha.

Why is the newer 1/60 VF-1 being treated like it's only just an improvement over the 1/60 original?

It should be compared with the 1/48! Why the f would Yamato bring out a new release VF-1 with removable legs,

non hinge canopy and no 100% don't fix it if it ani't broke swing bar???? Are you people mad?????? crazy talk, just crazy.

/rant over.

charger69, you rule, i think i love you man, you like... wana make out or something? :p:D

New VF-1 WINS! btw guys, the fighter will always look stubby with the LANDING GEAR DOWN.

dante, if it's true there is no new leg bendy feature then i'm ok with it, dissapointed but it isn't as important as

double jointed arms, those joints will revolutionize our posing.

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.

What's wrong with a nosecone that hangs past the knees :lol::lol::p

EDIT----> Sorry Graham......I could'nt help myself.

You are TOTALLY correct mate. Once these bad boys are out the "strike a pose" topic will be OVERLOADED instantly.

I love the way it looks in ALL modes. I don't see any one mode looking better than the other. In fact, I think it looks better overall than the 1/48's...and this is coming from someone who owned a 1/48. And I also think that the fighter mode of this new 1/60 looks just as good and even a little bit better than the 1/48 due to the arms no longer hanging lower than the nacelles.

I'm getting every version that comes out.

But do its legs come off??

:ph34r:

Argh no no not the ban stick! Not the Baaan Stiiick! I was kidding I swear I was kiddddiiinnnnggggg....

:ph34r:

I will at least be getting a max/Hik/Millia/Roy, and the VF-1D.

This just looks nice and is in a scale I can safely display and at a price I can afford... any word on fast packs for them? I have not been able to sift through all the pages to find out if it was mentioned.

it looks good but i have yet to see it with FP's so i don't really care. if yamato is going to sell the FP seperately, im just not buying these.

the FP's are small to begin with so it should be cheap, but with yamato oversized packaging its probably going to end up being a rip off.

I still think the 1/48 looks better in fightermode. Sure its arms hangs lower but it also got a better looking and longer nose and moving control surfaces and such details.

Still the 1/60 looks better in Battroid and its got 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

times better hands B))

Am I the only one loving the look of the gerwalk mode? The backpack shape looks perfect.

Also, I posted in-scale comparison pics of fighter modes somewhere in this thread, and the nose of the 1/60 was not really any shorter than the 1/48.

while some of the improvements are good, why the heck would they make the lower fin on the legs hinge?

i'm sure it for the GBP but won't that hinged fin eventually get loose over time? and whats up with the ridiculously oversized red dot on the S head? hope they make it smaller as it draws attention way from the head itself.

That is VERY true.....why would they hinge. A hingeing (really a word???) part that small would just be ridicuously stupid for it would just get loose and fall off eventually. And maybe the red dot is from Charger69's sniper rifle :huh:

Battroid is perfect. Something weird about fighter mode though.

I'd get a 1S and a 1D and be done with the vf-1.

Ok, those two plus a CM Legioss/Tread, the YF-21, a supernova YF-19 and a VF-0D and I could be done with this god forsaken toy addiction... maybe if they ever did them, a VF-4 and a VF-17/171 and a VF-25... F* Macross Frontier <_<

Looks Good! The hands are better, as well as the acuracy on all of the 3 modes. I love the profile with the arms being tucked closer to the belly for a more streamlined look. The photos look very good for a paint master! I wonder if the feet-nozzles are going to be that light blue color??

Magnets for the leg fastpacks perhaps??

Nice!!

I hope Yamato produces the VF-25!

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.

Not for me - it's likely to spend as much time in fighter and Gerwalk as it does in battroid should I buy it. It does look rather nice indeed - liking the look of it and the proportions a lot. The only thing stopping me from making a resolution to buy it is that I am asking myself how many Roy-1S's I actually _need_ to own. I've already got two of the 1/48th scale ones (one with FP's and one in "atmospheric" config) and the original 1/60th (totting my GBP armour). Not sure if I'd immediately jump at a fourth.

Now when they come out with the Hikaru -1J I'll be very interested, and it a Max and Millia would be nice just so I can have decent ones in the same scale.

Very nice looking toy though, very nice indeed.

The hands are NOT the same as the 1/48's! They actually look closer to the HCM's. The new hands do not fold at a diagonal angle, just a right angle, unlike the 1/48, where the lower fingers were folded at a diagonal angle. The hands on this are more straight forward. Notice the tab to help keep the gun in place. The new positioning of the fingers as well as the tab should make the gun connection more sturdy than the original 1/48. Notice the intake covers are either painted or molded inside the intake and viewable from underneath. Pretty nifty. There might be double jointed knees, but the lower knee joint may be obscured and not viewable. The backpack locking mechanism looks better, maybe its just me, but I have a feeling we won't see any BP8 breakages with this toy.

Just wish they were newer pictures, yea half of them are, but I'm talking dengeki hobby 2 page spread showcasing transformation.

To: Anybody in the know

Does anybody know if they've improved the hip joint mechanization from the 1/48? That's the only part of the design that bothers me.

My 1/48 roy does have a herniated hip joint rubber.

Damn, I was so looking for a reson to not like the new 1/60's(I just love the 1/48's that much). But those pics have me sold. :o Those hinged leg flaps should make for a killer GBP armor set.
