Coming in May are renewal versions(in new package) of the popular 1/48 VF-1S Roy Focker Special & 1/48 VF-1S Hikaru Custom by Yamato! These 1/48 scale releases of the VF-1 Valkyrie are some of the most popular Macross toys. The Roy Focker Special in particular usually selling out in no time, every time it is reissued.
Despite the release of the newer V2 1/60 VF-1 Valkyrie, the Yamato 1/48 VF-1 Valkyrie toys are still the biggest and most detailed VF-1 toys ever released. Depending on whom you talk to, they are regarded as the best VF-1 toys ever made. The 1/48 VF-1 design broke the mold so to speak, as it was the 1st modern, perfect variable VF-1 toy to be made since the venerable Takatoku 1/55 VF-1 Valkyrie series of the 80’s. It’s unveiling came as a shock in spring 2002, as the only other VF-1 series Yamato had released prior to the 1/48 was the parts-swapping V1 1/60 series. The 1/48 was a significant step up.
In any case, if you missed out on these during the years, you got another chance to get these in May(for the VF-1S Hikaru Custom) & June(for the VF-1S Roy Focker Special)! Both releases feature significantly smaller packages than the previous versions.
