I think you mean the VEFR-1 " Funny Chinese" instead of the Cat‘s Eye

Nice list and thots..;)

My take is that with the new delta movie coming soon, those long shot vf-1 valks are most likely to be in the wishlist wonderland for quite some time...

 

I agree, hopefully they release TV Kaki and the rest of DYRL skull squadron.

Others:
VF-1J Stealth (I need this)
VF-1S Low Vis (maybe? jk I will PO this so fast)

 

There might be some more, GBP for Max and Roy was teased and that'd be cool. Maybe a Minmay guard or Woodland color? I don't know if that is licensed. Blue Roses w/ Fast pack? Hell yea! What I really want is a no-paint version or kit based on this mold. :)

There's a high percentage that these will not get issued.

The GBP for Max and Roy are teasers to get peoples' interest and not going to get done. Roy's GBP Armour reminds me of Ozma's 29 paint scheme and Max's is too oversaturated with blue (Wasn't the GBP for Roy and Max made as a model kit [which I think it was] and then "HG" made them for the blasphemed non- Macross toyline?).

For the Stealth 1J and Low Vis 1a, Minmay guard, Woodland it would be a bonus if Bandai does make them into DX, however will variants valks sell if it's not cannon to the timeline?

So a canon VF-1 in wrong colors?.....sadly, that actually sounds plausible...

It would be easy for them to rationalize also as black is an awful color for anime. Black vehicles are sometimes depicted as dark blue so they can be discerned from dark backgrounds.

Perhaps...but not in this case....it's actually just briefly shown in a quick hanger shot in all it's dark blue glory.....anything too far off from the color that Yamato released it in would be a fail...in either case, I would be shocked if released...even in black! :bigshok:

Anyone who owns the Yamato Caveliers Valk can attest to the fact it DOES NOT look like those promo pics! It basically almost looks black on a shelf in normal room lighting. 

I do....but not sure what your point is...."almost black" is still not "black"...LOL....

The point WAS that releasing a Cavaliers VF-1A that was ACTUALLY black would not be canon....

Here you go.....

Want a black VF-1 from Bandai?  Pray they do copy Yamato and release a version of their non-canon "Stealth" VF-1J which does have "some" black in it's overall paint scheme....

Or rip off the black and gold anniversary 1S.

 

But I'll still get a black Cavaliers if they do it.

The point wasn't so much that Bandai WOULD make a Cavaliers black, just that they wouldn't copy Yamato non canon schemes. Cavaliers or some new homage scheme are the best bet for a stealth looking scheme (and still, very long shots). We have a lot of primary and secondary schemes to get through before that's a thought.

Still need GBP.;)

Sure do! Though I think it will be a separate accessory set with a possible 1J reissue to go with it. I think Bandai will balk at releasing a a 35k+ yen bundle because people will balk at a 35k+ price tag. ;)

Thanks @no3Ljm! I just wish Bandai wouldn't overlook such basic details for a high end valkyrie toy.
