Is it yellow orange or is it just the lighting?

Definitely the lighting.

MUAHA HA HA HA HAAAA!

Just three in a row!

Go for one more!

Go for it.

Connect Four!

 

Phalanx, TV Armored VF-1J, TV Nousjadeul-Ger, or TV Queadluun-Rau.

 

Realistically, come on Tomahawk, Phalanx, and DYRL Nousjadeul-Ger.

Pretty sure there's already an armored VF-1J and a VF-1A CF.

So just the bottom row, Tomahawk, and Phalanx.

I'm pretty sure it's just a 'display' model that we're seeing.

@no3Ljm is correct..  Here's a pic that I found on Google (Flickr) by Joriel "Joz" Jimenez of the 1/60 Yammie VE-1 and VF-1d. I believe that someone will also do it with the HMR VE-1 and VF-1d when their together.

Saw that. So there was a movie version of these?

Yes, first release is DYRL version but the biggest difference is the missile color and they got that wrong. I imagine TV version would just be the same but the 1J would be brighter white with a blue canopy, they might make the armor a paler blue also.

If you look at the boxes for the HMR releases, they either have the TV show branding for Macross , or the DYRL branding for the movie(or none for things like the Messer VF-1S), depending on the release.  IIRC, the only release that has "dual" branding for both the show and movie is the VF-1A cannon fodder.  Which makes sense because they give both a TV and DYRL style head for it, so it is a clear and deliberate move by Bandai to give us both versions.  This pic from anymoon gives you a good idea of the difference in branding:

Bandai-HMR-VT-1-4.jpg

The other obvious candidates for "dual branding" would be the destroids, imo, but they only have the TV style branding on the box.  I don't know if any differences exist between TV and DYRL destroids, besides perhaps a slightly different coloring.  The GBP release could possibly squeak by as a "dual release," but there are enough details that are DYRL-specific to land it squarely in the DYRL camp (most notably the pilot).

All that is to say... I don't really know why Bandai does what it does.  I think if they make a concerted effort to give you two distinct releases in one box, like the CF VF-1A, then they will dual brand it. There are plenty of toys that obviously fall into only one brand or the other, but they still give DYRL-style accessories to toys that only appeared in the TV show.  For the rest of the in-between stuff... they just do whatever, I guess.
