CdnShockwave has posted images of his recently acquired VF-11C Thunderbolt from Macross 7! This 1/60 version was recently released by Yamato, after a few delays. It follows the release of the various VF-22S’ which started last year when Yamato acquired the Macross 7 license for 1/60 scale toys.
Known as the cannon fodder of the series, the VF-11C features a design similar to that of the VF-1 Valkyrie; which is quite fitting considering that the VF-11 is considered to be the true successor to the classic VF-1. Despite it’s cannon fodder status, the VF-11C was a highly anticipated release, featuring retooled parts to make it more animation accurate and distinguish it from the previously released, VF-11B.
With the announcement by Yamato that they are making a 1/60 VF-19 Kai Fire Valkyrie, what other Macross 7 releases could be next in 1/60 scale? Could the heavy armor, similar to the VF-1’s GPB armor parts, be released for the VF-11C later this year? Click on the title bar to see Yamato’s new VF-11C Thunderbolt III!
