Bandai Sv-262 DX valk

Recommended Posts

Note: This is not a bump in the thread of an SV 262 Ba variant, however its more as an "What If" when the DX version gets released.

Just listed on Manda, Hasegawa model kit of Mirage's 262 Ba is shown and the box art shows in her own colours [I know that this kit was shown in battriod form way back in the thread (and valk if my memory serve me correctly)], will anyone pick it up based on this? :nea:

I think that a fair amount of us will wait for the regular Ba (Pope head) variant.

Edit; I might get it cause of Mirage herself, however the actual colours on the DX will either make it or break it.

I love it.

 

Yes, you will feel the urge to smash it against the wall more than once. But its uniqueness, colors and poseability is why I just can't stop staring at it, and it's the only valk I'm considering getting a 2nd unit.

 

Legs are freaking strong, and it's extremely balanced. You only need a stand if you want a flying pose. 

 

You will regret getting one, I'm sure, but eventually you will love it as well ;)

Agreed. I didn't find the transformation all that bad, but I highly suggest you watch a video or two of it and then work along with the video, at least that's how I do it. It is a beautiful toy, no doubt, has great shelf presence with the sword and missile attachments, Little Drakkens are kinda meh, but nice to have.

Wish I bought one when they were 13000 JY at CDJ  : /

This is what I paid for mine (except from Manda).

At that price,  I'm not disappointed.  Getting it into gerwalk is a pain, but just going fighter-> battroid (you can skip gerwalk) really isn't that bad.  I have the lil'draken/missile set on the way, I'll give impressions of that when I get it.

Be advised that while the valk is still available at a discount, the accessory pack is not.

Also, it's my wife's favorite valk (appearance-wise, at least).  So that's a bonus, I guess.

13k yen for a DX SV-262Hs is worth it.

Manda had it for low as opened condition at 10k, 12k, 14k and now presently at 17k. Thankfully that I got my copy from Jungle for 13k [Box B/Item B] couple of months ago (as the ordering site is still on overhaul) and the Lil'Drakens for Amazon Japan at the same price. Still in the box as of now along with my other valks, since I've got no room to display it (Edit: All the boxes are opened if your wondering).

Amiami has a pre-owned Hs (last copy) for roughly 17k if anyone is interested -  https://www.amiami.com/eng/detail/?gcode=FIGURE-023079-R

Manda has two listings of the Lil'Draken at 12k - https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1075741705&ref=list

As for the valk - https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1062529883&ref=list

As discussed in the other thread, I would also love a second SV-262, would it be a Pop Elvis variant, any screened CF 262Ba or the new concert 262Ba:

Ok seriously, I would buy all of those. :lol: 

I should really grab some more of the kits before they get hard to find.  They've got some structural issues, but they're really fun to build, and more enjoyable to transform than the DX.

I just want the Cannon Fodder version, can never remember the model number. I far prefer the standard head over Keith's Annubis head.

The Pope head is the SV-262Ba.

So, any word that this Valkyrie will see more releases? Since the Macross Delta movie and word of another, a single release seems disappointing. I love the unique nature of this design and hope that I can convince my wife to let me get one soon, if still available at reasonable prices.

Have you watched the transformation video? That thing is super complicated.

I love the 262, it's been the closest valk ever to get a second copy (still haven't pulled the trigger).

- Extremely Unique transformation (the arms, the shape of the head, the position of the head)

- Amazingly balanced. 

- Articulation Range

- It even has a freaking sword!

 

I'm literally looking for any excuse to have more of them. Give me Hernan, Xao, a white 262, anything please!

Just so you know, you're not going to have the freaking sword, until you buy the Lil Draken & Missile Pod option set.  :rolleyes:

And yes, I'm still waiting for Elvis Draken. ;)

Enough of those VF-1's, Bandai. And release the Elvis Draken, now! :aggressive:

That didn’t seem to diminish the demand for the VF-31A or the super armor parts success for the 31-S and its subsequently massive mark up , thereafter..

But compared to Frontier and just about everything else Macross, I’m sure you’re right. The Drakken just didn’t get the love..

I’m much more hardcore with my 1/72 collection these days and I snatched it up as soon as it came out in that scale..

It doesn't help that Delta was a terrible show. 

I laughed when the draken appeared and it was wielding a freaking sword!! Ugh, I thought, this whole knights of the kingdom thing and sword is just so un-Macross. 

But months after the Sv-262s release I ended up getting an unused one on Mandarake. Simply because of my curiosity in the unorthodox transformation that we have never seen before. (Or probably never will again).

So what’s your verdict then on the DX Draken? Is it still laughable after?
