The DX VF-25F Tornado Messiah from the Macross Frontier line by Tamashii was released recently, and the MetalBox Blog has posted images of it out of package! The Tornado Messiah debuted in the Macross Frontier movie and was designed to combat the VF-27 Lucifer. With beam cannons reminiscent of both the VF-2SS Valkyrie II with SAP attachments and VF-1 Strike Valkyrie, and wings reminiscent of the VF-0D Phoenix, this is a unique version of the VF-25 Messiah.
The VF-25F Alto Custom included in this set is molded in white like the 1st standalone release from the end of 2008, but with metallic limb/joint parts like the ankles and biceps. Click on the title bar to see the differences, as Metal Box took photos comparing the Tornado Messiah to the original standalone VF-25F, and the movie VF-25F Super Messiah!
