The whites/greys will be different and the VF-1A head will need to be detached along with the neck joint to swap with the VF-1S head

If I am like this now, I would hate to imagine what I am like when I am in the midst of dissertation work, or when I hit 30.

Can confirm. 40's. Completing doctoral dissertation. Spending thousands on Macross. Best form of thesis procrastination ever.

Thanks bbrain!

Would the VF-1J Hikaru wings w/ hardpoints be a close color match?

No.  The closest would be the CF wings and then paint the brown areas tan grey.

Quick question, does this one include a strike cannon, or did Bandai do its usual thing of only including one specific version?

Hikaru's VF-1A figure doesn't come with the Strike Cannon. Only Super Parts as per DYRL appearance. And the Strike Cannon wasn't mentioned in the Tamashii product page.

Gotcha, I mean I wasn't expecting it, just would have been nice to have the option like Yamato/Arcadia always have.

But they don't have that as extra, both of those were label as SUPER Strike, so it was part of it.

When Yamato release their SUPER vf-1j it did not include strike parts .

I just got in my first set of HMR VF-1S Strike valkyries (both Hikaru and Roy).

I did not realize that, while the packaging calls them Strike Valkyries,  they are actually Super + Strike. They include 2 Super thingymajiggers, with a Strike cannon component that can replace the front half of the Super thingymajiggers, much like the Yamato v2 / Arcadia Super + Strike parts.

That is awesome!

I had assumed that one of the thingymajiggers was a dedicated Strike, and the other a Super.

Grew up watching the animated G.I. Joe series back when I was younger and this got stuck in my mind.. ^_^
