If people don't bitch and moan about something then nothing ever changes.

Anyone remember the VF-0 Shoulders? :p

Hell, prolly if it weren't for the insane amount of bitching and moaning about the lack of an upgraded VF-1 since Yammy started it's premium 1/60 line of M0 and M+ valks a bit back, would we even have a 1/60 PT VF-1 to be bitching about right now? :p

I'll agree on the shoulders... but the second part.. meh. there's correlation but no evidence of causality. It's like going outside everyday and saying, "it's going to rain." One day you'll be right but you hardly made it rain.

And honestly i could care less about the side covers. I never used them on the 1/48s so the few 1/60s i get it doesnt bother me that i doesnt have them. I find them a bit of a nuisance anyway.

Just pretend you want them then. That way they might include them. I always thought having a gap there was bad visually for robot mode. (not enough to stop me from buying one but it makes enough of a difference to be worth mentioning)

Just as some of you guys have issues with plane modes having stubby noses even though these are planes designed for space combat anyway and chubby FAST packs that spoil the sleek look on top of it. :p

If you don't like the covers then you at least have a choice not to put them on right?

Yes.....please.....if you don't want side covers I understand.....but......PLEASE PLEASE say you do so that we may have a fighting chance of getting them. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE it to have some.

Hrmmm,

Looks alot better than what I thought it would. I may have to get some of these after all. Now what do I do with all my 1/60 version 1's? I guess I will keep them as their value is sure to bottom out and I would have to sell them at a huge loss. Dang this sucks, at least I only have one of each. Oh well, I have grown accustomed to being poor!

It also makes me glad I only got 4 1/48's, my fave pose is battriod and I think I will keep the 1/48's for valk mode.

If the price is really going to a little above or below $100 I think I can do with buying just the skull squadron all over again. . .

I prefer it stay under $100 Other wise its looks great

edit :

didnt come across this but are the boxes smaller.

the 1/48 had huge boxes compared to the actual Valk

These do need to follow that pattern.

edit: meant that they do not need to have huge boxes

I never imagined that I would be happy that a toy that I wanted would be ONLY $100! Strange times indeed.

Yeah me too I'm so used to paying through the nose it is almost a relief, almost. . .

Are you serious!?!? Those HUGE boxes are HORRIBLE. They take up way too much space.

Definitely nice! After seeing this thread and the pictures, it's motivated me to start collecting again. The 1/48 valkyries are nice, but the size was a turn off for me, with regard to my display space limitations. B))

I'm pretty sure that since these are the same size as the old 1/60 line, that Yamato will use the same boxes that they did with the first 1/60 VF-1 line. The only difference we'll see is new box art.

That's one of the reasons why I'm so happy about them redoing the 1/60 VF-1 line. Space is at a mega premium at my place, so the smaller, the better.

I thought I may just remain being a Chunky freak...but there are a few of these that I actually wanna get and think they they will display nicely with my Chunkys.

Don't quote me on this, but from what I understand, the 1/60 VF-1 with FAST Packs will retail for roughly the same as a 1/48 without FAST Packs.

Thanks Graham! I guess we will know for sure in the coming months.

BTW, the pics in the new magazines look like screengrabs from a commercial, and those usually advertise the price at the very end towards the bottom. I noticed that the images look cropped, so perhaps pricing is not yet finalized?

I'm excited for what might be a new VF-1 commercial!

are we those pics right? are those FP's finally molded in the correct color?

and... now that we have proof of FP's, i'm a little concerned about the backpack now.

-can the new backpack lock be used in gerwalk? you know, fighter + FP's. it needs some kind of lock, right?

-how sturdy would the whole backpack section be with the FP's attached?

we get stand alone & deluxe FP sets! woooo! my wallet will hate me now :lol:

possible deluxe GBP set ?

Great!!! fast packs!!!

it seems that the small missile pods is not included?

and the cover doesnt open for the leg armor?

too early to tell..... :)

i hope that they make the part "BP8" a lot stronger as we encountered some problems in 1/48s... so that we can leave it in battroid with fast packs n pose it around without any worry for cracks or breakages..

thanks graham!
