@RedComet has a VF-1 with a damaged leg that is basically junk. He may be willing to sell you that swing bar.

Yeah, I believe it's only the leg missiles though

I'm still hoping the rest of the missiles will be 'somehow' removable. Even if the upper ones are just painted tips on a flat plastic base...

I'm holding out hope for a effects kit with itano circus type 'missile trails' .. that could include the missiles that don't come on the GBP.  *fingers crossed*  Actually I guess if they are not removeable the 'smoke cloud' could effectively just tab in over top.

That would be a pretty nice kit.  They really should do those.  The only one I've seen that had anything like that was the VF-19 punch effect.  There might be others but that's the only one I know of

There was a HMR add-on with missile launch effects.

I've seen those too.  They're pretty neat.  For what they cost it would be nice to see more accessories like that added.  Of course it would probably end up being a Tamashii Nations exclusive :lol:

In the pictures of "next item?" i don't see a VF-1A Cannon fodder DYRL version...Yamato never released neither... is it going to be a cursed valk??

I really hope that one comes soon. I'm surprised they left that out and put instead a GBP with yellow tipped missiles... come on. The 1A CF DYRL is the only one I want after these GBP parts to be set and done. There were 1/60 and 1/48 releases from Yamato, they exist.

You misremember, Yamato did release a DYRL VF-1A Cannon Fodder during the 30th anniversary.

Yamato relased both TV and DYRL? version as 1/60 v2. For the 1/48 line only DYRL?

jenius beat me to it :lol:

I definitely hope Cannon Fodder VF-1A is next, that would be a perfect option after the D and GBP.
Then they can switch back to movie editions and do the VT-1 and VE-1 and then I'll be completely broke!

No Yamato 1/48 tv cf....closest to it would be the Macross Chronicle exclusive TV VF-1A Kakizaki...

:( For a moment i really hoped i missed something througout all those years of collecting...a 1/48 DYRL from Yamato would have been like a dream coming true(although on mine i did replace the tv pilot with a DYRL pilot).

This every 6 months or so schedule they are doing has really been working well for me... I've skipped tv max (mistake) and DYRL Kakizaki. And having stopped buying Gundam kits til I build the ones I have. The budget can handle what DX Chogokin is throwing at it.

 

I'd love to see DYRL Max. So he is represented in my incomplete collection

Maybe Bandai will include a swappable DYRL CF VF-1A head with the TV CF VF-1A.  Throw in a CF 1J and 1D head and that would be pretty cool.

That wouldn't be a crazy idea now that they've included the grey goggles head with the GBP. Fingers crossed.

There is a list of Yammie 1/60 valks for grabs on Jungle and there is a Weathered 1s Max for 40k yen (Grade A) if your interested (plus others too) @lavinrac

A DX 1s DYRL Max shouldn't  be too far if Bandai does decides to offer it. 

Edit: Name of store should be a help d'uh.

But with all the DYRL specific tampo....Bandai would not pass up on fleecing their customers with TV and DYRL versions....lol

Yes, there was a DYRL version that Yamato released of a VF-1A in 1/48

They should do a TV or DYRL version and make the other a TWE but as part of the same production run with just a different head and markings. Seems like an economical way to get both variants done.

Yeah...I am pretty sure they will release a stand-alone DYRL GBP set.....but what if they go nuts and release a DYRL Armored Valkyrie VF-1J....the one we see in the movie with movie specific markings for the VF-1J and a DYRL pilot in "Hikaru" TV colors like they did with the HMR release of the DYRL Armored Valkyrie....if that were to happen I would hope it would be a TWE

:shok: What??? Where do i get one??? No seriously, are they still available on second market? What are the main differences from the TV version except for the pilot? Are there any pictures around??? Can't believe i missed that for so many years!
