GA Graphic has posted new full color images of the upcoming 1/100 VF-1J Valkyrie Hikaru Custom from Tamashii‘s VF HI METAL line! The VF-1J Valkyrie was Hikaru’s main mount until the middle of the Macross TV series.
The VF HI METAL VF-1J is the most articulated 1/100 figure made of the VF-1 design. It’s able to strike poses such as the classic pose shown at the end of the TV opening. The hips can extend outwards to the sides, to aid in poses, such as kneeling poses. The prototype also shows pre-painted missles with red trim, which is a 1st for Bandai(missles on the HCM and 1/55 VF-1’s by Bandai never had painted trim). Engine covers can be removed to reveal the turbines, and landing gear is swappable. The VF-1 is set for it’s debut in the VF HI METAL line in late June for 5,775 yen(MSRP).
