Time to Procure a Valkyrie

Posted by MikeD 


just for fun, the VF-17 had a regular Gerwalk mode in Macross VF-X2

also it had purple stripes

they should make that one

go ravens

see it's funny because the team and the squadron in the game are both named-

wait a minute can the vf-17 gerwalk even really hold its arms like that??

Yep. It's a demonstratively legitimate falling idol saver in that mode. The shoulders are free to move in any position. How else would they turn around to allow the arms to bend up for the VF-17's stated Gerwalk mode?

It's just that they didn't want to code anything other than the regular gun pod (which they changed to being a laser gun for some reason. A bunch of the games do that) for Gerwalk mode.
Just put your arms straight out and bend your elbows so they're pointing towards the enemy. Now you too are a VF-17 Gerwalk. Try it at home or at the office

i'm sure the right hips don't hurt either
Okay...so Yamato's VF-17 looks way better than the Bandai 1/65 ever did in fighter and gerwalk mode, but the battroid mode looks like a blocky garage kit? WTF?!?

This almost makes me want to customize one of my Bandai's to see whether I can blow that thing out of the water just for the sake of it...

Frontier movie 2 was certainly better than 1 but I still liked the tv series better.

Anybody else watch yet?

No, really, have you seen the 17's Battroid mode? It's spot on.

compare it to experten's garage kit


All four VF17's next to each other. The Yamato's chest is way too blocky and way off in proportions. The Bandai's legs are misproportioned and the upper arms too long, and the garage kit is off in the legs and arms.

The lesson we have learned from every previous Yamato release is that you cannot use the poofed up anime art for comparison. It just doesn't work.

Er, I guess that should say 'spot on for what is practical'... goddamn Macross always tripping me up.

painted sample I believe. I think it is close to the final colors. A nice black for collecting dust.

The article says many fans eagerly await this item.

If I wanted to get a 2.0 1/60, would Hikaru's VF-1A be alright or are there any problems I'd have to worry about? Any minor differences between Hikaru, Kakizaki and Max's? All three are on sale.

I included that shot of the eyes so we wouldn't incur the wrath of Jeevrage.
Someone answer my question, please?

'cuz of that time when you said you couldn't tell where the RVF-25's head was
(the RVF is the minty green one with no real eyes, just sensors on the sides of its domed white head)

Aw jeez it does. I was thinking of it more like a pilot's helmet, and now I think you've ruined it for me :d

it's okay

that YF-29 can be like Johnny

MISTO FINER!

Johnny touches underage girls and that is not okay

he also wears a cowboy hat, not a captain's hat

this valk would be more like May

giant anchor weapon

EDIT: damn I WISH there was a valk in bright orange with black trim. or is that too Astro Plan?

So...

Alto VF-25 = Kermit the Frog
Luca RVF-25 = UFO for a head
Ozma VF-25 v.2 = Alien space leech for a head
Ozma YF-29 = Pirate hat?

Wow, I checked out the playthrough, and the voice acting is awful, annoying and boring, and gameplay is really awful too. How do games like this get produced without the company going bankrupt?

Actually, if you consider its shapes, the RVF-25's head is designed to iconically represent its AWACS/ELINT role, as a visual counterpart to the antenna rotodome on the valkyrie's back. The smoothly tapered white face resembles the external radar pods that can be mounted on some planes, and the whip antennae on the head create the impression of an electric arc jumping between a pair of "rabbit ears".
