DX VF-171EX from Macross Frontier

*sigh* I really, really want this. And I even prefer the alto version over the cannon fodder or luca variants. I guess I'll just have to wait until July, when all the scalpers put up sales on eBay....

I'll just convince myself that this is the same as the Yamato Vf-17 (as prices most likely will be similar at that stage)...

While I do like this model, the price point atm is a bit out of reach for me. Also the availability seems equally scarce. Most websites were already sold out the minute they were posted for pre-order.

This is another reason I wish bandai weren't so stingy with their production runs. At least with yamato you know there will enough available upon release. Which strikes me as odd because bandai is a much bigger company with all the other properties and merchandise they have already. They should realise by now that the macross brand is profitable and does sell, maybe not as much as gundam sales per say but they can still make considerable profit from this franchise.

I know Japanese companies don't like to take risks but this trend has been getting on the extreme end of things lately and not just for the toy industry...

I'm also interested in that 1/1 scale VF-25 that is mentioned at the bottom of the second scan.

Bandai would :D

Also, great pics, but it makes the arms look a lot more spindly than in previous pics. I do prefer the beefier arms of the regular -17...

I am really hoping my Bigbadtoystore preorder comes through! Also, IF Bandai comes out with armor for the Vf 171ex, will it be the super armor found here http://macross2.net/m3/macrossf/vf-171ex-super.htm or just the beam gun and the micro missle launcher found here http://macross2.net/m3/macrossf/vf-171ex.htm? Personally, I hope for the super armor.

Considering the cannons on the version with extra armor are the same as the version without the armor if they do release this stuff (separately, as an overpriced Tamashii exclusive) I'd imagine they would have the armor, guns and all.

Let's hope so.
