Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


IXTL

Recommended Posts

If there’s ever a piece that was meant to be bought and displayed in multiples, it’s the VF-1. I think @spanner‘s arrangement looks great. It makes me wonder (or wish) if there was a stand like the Tamashii Trident that some of us use for HMR that’d be large enough to handle 3 valks of DX size. Would a Yeti stand base work with 3 arms?

I was messing with my 1J earlier today and wondered if the gunpod can be stowed in reverse into the forearms. Well it can’t.

I truly hope Bandai will make an improvement on this to allow the DYRL valkyries the capability to do so. I always remember back when Max in his 1A fires into the face of the Zentradi he rips out of his N-Ger. It sure would make an awesome way to display him if he should ever be released.

It's great to see that you have three 1J's, Spanner. :good: ^_^ 

Thanks Noel, it certainly feels great to have another trio going! I only have the two sets of three Valkyries now and they're both VF-1's.. these DX and the the TV 1:60 Brownies. Absolutely loving these DX's! Can't wait to see their next release!

I know the YetiStand works great with Arcadia's VF-0S. You can probably use it with 2 VF-0S since they're both the same size. But I think the DX VF-1J is much heavier so I won't suggest to use it for 3 DX VF-1J's. Probably 2 YetiStands will suffice just to be safe. ;)

I have to agree @ScrambledValkyrie. VF-1 looks great when displayed in multiples. :wub:

Howdy all!

First time on these Macross forums, and first time buying a Robotech/Macross Valkyrie.   This Bandai DX VF-1J is amazing! This piece is light years beyond some of my current transforming robot collection.  This piece belongs in a museum! 

Welcome to my '80s childhood collection!  Wow!

NY can be hit or miss in the customer service department.

Some will apologize for them more than others; but by and large, if they are communicating with you then you will probably receive your order (when is another question). Only NY can offer more info.

My 1j from amiami finally arrived today.  i sold all my 1:48 valks years ago when i started collecting the 1:60 v2's....i forgot just how big 1:48 valks are.  I share all the pros and cons already stated in this thread so i will keep this short.  Its gorgeous and very well built. It looks great on a shelf.  I am glad i got one and i will get the hikaru 1s if released but thats probably it.  I prefer my yamato/arcadia 1:60's and i don't see them going anywhere/being replaced anytime soon.

Hehe! Absolutely! But I don't think I should spend all my money... The Macross museum should replace all their 1:60's with the new DX 1:48's!!

Nippon Yasan still doesn't send mine. Someone else?

I ordered one from NY and they shipped it last week and it arrived yesterday. Though it was in order preparation for over a week..

that is a really nice shot.  If the VF-1J wasn't making a thumbs up, it would look like he's taking a selfie . :)

Sorry about the phone 'pink case'. I just saw some movie last weekend about a man who can talk to the sea creatures. ^_^
