DX Chogokin VF-25 Revival Ver (WWM Releases)

It took a lot of superglue and careful sanding, but I was able to piece back together one of the sets of crumbled triangles and shoulders on one 171CF.  I think what I had to do was remove the metal spring pins, and replace them with segments of insulated wire, and they work good as new.

The one whose knee shattered became a stock of spare parts for all the others, so I'm pretty close to having three decent ones out of the four wrecks I picked up.

A green renewal VF-27 would be much appreciated if they took it back to the original dull olive green color of the first release.  The 1.5 version was WAY too deep/bright a green, and didn't match the show at all.  (but the stripes were at least grey, while the 1.0 has lavender stripes carried over from Brera's)

Agreed and the green wasn't even uniformly consistent.

Yes, improving the mold would be a welcome addition to the mold of the “renewal” VF-27. I would also hope that they would improve the VF-171 mold, such as the disintegration triangles and the exploding wing pins.

The Alto , Maruyama, and  Luca 171's all seemed to have been fixed of those issues.

I’m still holding out for a YF-24 Evolution.

Oh yes ! I want one! But it's probably not   Coming until it's featured in the next game , OVA, or Series.. even a cameo would be justification!

So, with the revival Bandai DX Chogokin VF-25F Super Set Alto custom revival version (try saying that 3 times fast), it comes with Alto in his ex-gear on a little stand. Is this new, or did it come with the renewal version of the toy. Thanks!

You're asking about the small Alto Ex-Gear figure, right? If so, yes, it did came with the Alto Renewal version.

It is slim chance these days going by their current release pattern, but I hope Bandai also move on to revive the non-heroic schemes.

The YF-25 Prophecy is one of my earliest valks, it is now yellowed as heck. I dug up an old pic back when it was new and re-processed it, and to me this one of the best schemes of any valk.

The YF-25 Prophecy was the only renewal VF-25 that I owned from Bandai. It was such a unique scheme, and the only one that was officially from the New UN Spacy.  Way back when you could get it from BBTS,  for Christmas one year I got the original VF-25F Alto Custom.  It is definitely showing its age, but I passed it onto my 14 year old son, and he enjoys the heck out of it as one of his only, true Macross jets that he owns.  I now have the special VF-25F World Wide Macross release and it has rekindled my love for the designs of Macross Frontier.

So in my stocking, I received a slip of paper proclaiming that my wife pre-ordered the Bandai DX Chogokin VF-25F Super Parts Revival edition Alto Saotome custom!  I am super excited!  BBTS says June, hope it comes in earlier than that!

WoooHoo!

My searching ability is apparently not very good. I see a DV VF-25 Version 2 thread in the hall of the super topics but there had to be other VF-25 Renewal threads since then. Anyone know where I can locate them? I'm trying to figure out if Bandai made any changes between the first Alto release in 2011 and the 'final' reissue in 2014.

Do you mean this thread?
