It's not original as a toy, with so many scales and renditions, the YF-21 is perfect in all areas, it should be toy of the year.

We still have some months yet, lets see what else will be released and then we can do a poll for such a statement.

Looks like Yamato updated their website with pics of the 1A with Super parts instead of Strike parts. I wonder if it will come with the Strike cannon anyway. The pics of the super mode also have the other decals/stickers applied such as the "no step" ones.

Also, the 1A without Fast Packs is slated for September release.

I have to say that it is absolutely gorgeous in Fighetr and Gerwalk modes but battroid suffers. For battroid go GNU (less space). Unless you are wicked ace or ruskiiVFausssie who can make anyrhing liook fantastic.

</whoa>

I might pick these up without the armor to display in fighter mode since I like how they incorporated the retracted intake covers, which is one of the things that bugged me about the 1/48 -- using stickers for that instead. That's one feature I think Yamato could have easily done on the 1/48, especially when they thought about the removeable intake covers. It looks like they don't plan on making a cover for the gap behind the head unless this will be another part that will be released with a GBP armor set. I was hoping they would incorporate some of the detail seen in the tv series for the underside in Gerwalk mode, but then again, I don't think it would be possible when that area has the swing bar and the rotating shoulder parts already.

Assuming u mean toys in general and not Macross, I think NECA's TMNT original comic series figures are the 2008 toys of the year so far. They're just awesome in every way!

Assuming u mean macross, then i tend to agree with u so far; the 21 is awesome. I think i like the 25th Anni -19 better though...

yes i mean macross. ;)

And I toally know what you mean about the new TMNT figs, i just bought the whole set (all 4 turtles in box) and the updated separate fig just to have the ninja climbing aids (i swapped the head off Raphael and placed it on the updated fig and gave my bro Donatello combo boxed version). What about Mikey's nunchuku! real chains!

Those are awesome, i'll show ya a piccy! Gimme a sec.

I hate to continue derailing the thread with another "cowabunga!", but I concur on the Neca TMNT figures being EASILY the best action figures of 2008. Hell, I may like them better than most figures from 2007 and 2006, too.

As for the new 1/60, there's no way I'd consider it in a 'best' category unless the category was "Best Unnecessary Remake". :p

One thing I'm wondering... since they went to the trouble of making the nose section removeable, why couldn't they have used a shorter cockpit for the 1-seaters, and eliminate that giraffe neck syndrome? That would have made the battroid PERFECT.

Still lovin' the looks of this thing overall. Always a sucker for the VF-1.

When are you going to update us on what youve done with the 1/48 customs of doom????

I want to know -

1. moveable tailfins aka 1st episode 1D shows off this.

2. double jointed arms and knees? :p

3. i'm sure there is something else, just want to knowwwwwwww something.

I've already shrugged off this release of the VF-1S coz i'm getting your 1 seater conversion kit with hopes of it kicking the new 1/60's arse.

I'm working on something totally new. :ph34r:

The more perfect looking the VF-1A....the more I HATE that head design!!

While the OA head design is pure joy, I have always hated the 1A head design. It's just so...boxy....bleh...

But I don't have a Hikaru 1A...just the 1J...hmm....

VFTF1

It says:

"Due to lack of interest in Japan, all plans for "2-seater" 1/60 valkyrie toys such as the VF-1D have been postponed indefinitely."

So if you want a 1/60 VF you'll just have to get one of the old ones where the transformation requires you to pull on the leg.

Just like I'm pulling yours. :p

That looks pretty good in battroid, but let's wait to see the final product.

I just hope the pilots aren't crammed inside the canopy (meaning we'd have amputee pilots).

there's no excuse for that considering the ginormous space behind the seat in the single pilot VFs.

if yamato just add a second seat and leave the same canopy it will be wrong basically a fake 1 D

all 2 seaters in real world have longer canopy compared to single seat aircraft. will see soon ^_^

Yeah, I think for line art accuracy, we need a longer canopy.

I don't think the canopy will be longer - they already lengthened the the cockpit section (see VF-1S battroid giraffe neck), and there's no more room for a canopy hinge if they extended the canopy more than it already is. I think this may be the case where the design was optimized for 2-seater, and they fudged the 1-seater canopy/cockpit to fit.

Isnt a perfect transform 1D impossible fo the same reason as the perfect 11B? The ehat shiled sides from around the canopy as it recesses right? How are they gonna do that?

Ill take a slightly faked version ay day if it looks good.

If you compare the VF-1D battroid CAD drawing with the VF-1S' battroid CAD drawing you'll notice that the indent in the chest plate is a little deeper, indicating that the canopy will be a little bit longer too.

Yes, the indent is deeper on the single seaters, but I don't see how they are going to extend the canopy much more than it already is and fit a hinge, all in this little space (unless they go removeable canopy with no hinge, like the 1/60 V.1).
