Thanks to members jocasle and TMBounty_Hunter for the scoop. Looks like there’s no stopping Hasegawa’s series of 1/72 Macross Frontier Valkyries. This time it’s going to be Luca Angelloni’s radomed RVF-25 Messiah. This is scheduled for a July 2014 release.
A year ago we posted that Hasegawa was going to release a kit of the VF-25 from Macross Frontier even though it was thought that Bandai had a death grip on the license. This week, the 1/72 scale model was finally released in Japan. Hopefully, the very talented roster of master model builders from our forums will start posting their build ups soon. Meanwhile here’s the box art and some more images after the jump!
Thanks to Vi-RS for posting the box art for the Hasegawa 1/72 scale 30th Anniversary VF-1A, scheme designed by Tenjin.
Updated with more images at the bottom.
Bandai debuts its perfect transformation 1/72 scale plamodel at the Shizuoka Hobby Show .
The kit is shown with the VF-1S Strike, the VF-1A Battroid, another VF-1S in fighter mode and what looks like another VF-1A in GERWALK. This is Bandai’s lastest version of the VF-1 since the 1/100 transformable toy. While the detail is impressive, there’s some huge shortcomings overall aesthetically. But with the lack of Macross products in the market, will this lone representation of the 30 year old design prevail in the market?
Once again, master model builder “Cool8or” has completed one of his beautiful pieces. This time he tackled another mech from MW’s own Captain America’s 1/72 line, the Zentradi Regult Scout Type. Not his first from that line, Cool8tor continues to showcase his talent and technique, not only choosing the beautiful colors for the standard scheme, but applying weathering that makes it hard to believe that what you’re looking at in these photographs are tiny scaled models.
