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!
Sorry I haven’t been able to update the toy and model news… long trips plus MWCon… less time. But here’s the new box art for the 1:72 VF-25F/S from Hasegawa as panted by Hidetaka Tenjin, of course! Goegeous as always. I can’t wait to see the build ups of these babies from our forum model masters!
On a more interesting note, Hasegawa announces their version of the VF-25 Messiah. Bandai has already released a well made model of the VF-25 but this marks the first time that Bandai has allowed another company release a mech in any scale from Macross Frontier. It seems like there was a trade in licenses.
It’s been four long days since this was posted, it’s amazing how ancient news becomes on the internet in mere hours… obviously from www.toyworld.com.hk, charger69 put up these pictures of Mikhail’s VF-25G.
These include the 1:1 scale statues of Minmay, Sheryl and Ranka, as well as scaled display stands of various Frontier characters. Also pictured in the article are various exhibit displays.
From GA comes the first pics of the 1:1 scale VF-25 Messiah display. Now stare at the pics while I wipe the drool of my keyboard…sglokijuxdtcrgyhijuok;lpkojygfu[lntyjo0u ctjiyuh87tg6fred3wtygfr6hjkhy87xzededstyvuyytvrezxtghfyvjuikouhytregyhikohuy7tyfgetgyhjuikohuytgfvtryhujikouhytfgtyhujihy7tgtgyhuijhy87tr6grrtyghuj
