My latest acquisition and now favorite piece in the collection.

How much did you pay for the Bandai 'Strike? Back in the day I paid $1400 for one when things were out of control...

Been a long time since I posted here...out of the loop sort of thing....anyway, I love that after being off of the Macross radar for so long I can come back here and see a good old fashioned joke machine posted up as someone's favorite toy...warms the cockles of my almost 40 year old heart....

thought I'd revive a dormant thread.. just because I can! :pand now back to the original topic..

so for me my all time fav has to be Hikaru's VF-1J presented to you by Miss Macross herself.. Lynn Minmay!

VF-1J nice! I have to hunt down one of those too.

Until I can get a VF-1S + Strike parts in my collection the VF-25S + Armored parts is my favorite, or they'd be tied for 1st place. :)

Dude your photos are works of art! Just looks sooo sexy! :p I have saved them all to my hdd! hope you don't mind! ;) The armored Ozma still is my fav Frontier Valk next to the Brera's 27y..

Hmmm maybe now just a little ahead of the Lucifer thanks to the armor parts! And I like how you have the chest missile launcher bay doors opening outwards also!

I think it looks much better this way and doesn't obstruct the view of the head unit!

But my Hikaru VF-1J was one of my earlier purchases when I started collecting again after selling of my old v1 VF-1 Valks years earlier..

The 'J' was an expensive little sucker too! at nearly $500 (aussie) MISB delivered! my VF-1J MPT was similarly priced.. actually more expensive if I remember correctly.. <_<

^Nice!

I'll post some pics once the Tornado Parts come in for the 25F. B))

Thanks! I can't wait get the Tornado Parts, I have F and G just waiting for their Tornado Pack upgrades. :)

That is absolutely badass Saburo!

As much as I love the VF-1J as well, for my favorite I would have to go with the VF-19 Kai.

Thanks abbadon.

Thank you for the compliments spanner. I don't mind if you saved them, I am glad you enjoy them. :) The VF-27γ is my favorite from the series but favorite toy is the VF-25S. :) Yep, I switched out the chest missile bay doors, it also helps with taking photos because doors don't obstruct the view of the head. ;)

I didn't get into collecting Valks until about a year ago so I am a late to the game. I did had a couple 1/55 Valks as a kid, but were a lost in a fire.

I hope to get a 1/60 VF-1J one day, but first is a 1/60 VF-1S. :)

I am currently using the top photo as my Samsung Note 3 wallpaper! works perfectly with the dark background!

Its funny you mention how you lost your 1/55's in unfortunate circumstances! During the late 80's in our (old old old) house we were robbed, we lost a whole bunch of stuff! all our tv's, video players, hi-fi system, cordless phones, money, jewelry.. etc etc even a few rugs & food! they almost completely cleaned us out! it was during the day and funny enough none of the neighbors saw anything.. <_< they would have needed a truck to take it all! so anyways among other things that were taken were my own 1/55 Valks that I had on display in my bedroom at the time were also taken! The only one that wasn't taken (of which I still have to this day) was a Transformers Skyfire version which I never kept on display as I didn't really like it so much..

1/48 low viz

That looks crazy!! I haven't ever seen that parts set before! and the mini style guns look cool too! very nice! are they original issue or from something else?

Ah yes, and the 1/48 Thunder Hummer kit. Very, very nice.

Those are from a custom kit that a few (or one) members here made for both 1/48 and 1/60th scale VF-1's. Jorawar B, EXO or a few other members can fill in the blanks (too lazy to look up the original threads right now).

I am sorry for what happened to you and your family. It seems a bit strange that no one saw aanything. :(

These two for me. :wub:

Only to realize that this one shows Hikaru's 1A instead of the 1S. Hehehe. :lol: Either or, both Hikaru's DYRL Valks looks the same except for the head but atleast it compliments Isamu's 19's head lasers on this photo. ^_^
