Bandai DX Chogokin 1/48 VF-1


IXTL

Recommended Posts

At first I thought this would simply be a scaled down version of the 1/35 prototype, but there appear to be multiple differences between the two. Sadly, those differences make the toy look worse IMO. I hope that I'm wrong and that it's just due to the photo, because Bandai has been putting out some impressive toys in their Hi-Metal R line and this looks like a step backwards.

Up-close it's kinda have a 'blocky' look.

It’s like a chunky monkey version 2 with modern engineering and poseability.  I like it.

Agreed and agreed. I've been hoping for a 1/55 refresh ever since I handled my first HiMR.

Still hoping for a relatively 'small' scale, in the area of 1/55 or 1/60. Anything bigger will make this cost and size prohibitive for me to collect.

I hope it has a rotating cockpit and somehow integral side covers.

i know it's ambitions but i would love if someone was able design the heat shield to come down in fighter mode. as the VF-1S did entering Earth's atmosphere.

calling it a heatshield, it should be put to use.

Anyone know what it says below VALKYRIE PROJECT?

Found a better pic. Hope someone who can read Nihonggo can translate it. I'm no good at kanjis. ^_^

According to google translate on my phone:

One time space alloy exhibition in 2015. And at the TAMASHII NATION 2016 held the following year, Valkyrie's solid appearing in each work ? was completed. "TAMASHII NATIONS VALKYRIE PROJECT" is now proceeding so that you can keep them as products.

Now, ? is announcing 2 aircraft at different sizes. Please stay tuned.

 

Sounds like there's 2 different scales of aircraft incoming.

So essentially this 1/48 VF-1J and the 1/60 YF-19?
