    Ebay:
    High: I revieced these two figures today, originally they're from the Macross 7 series. However as I've never been 100% fan of the looks of these compared to VF-1, VF-11B, VF-21 etc I wouldn't pay too much for them. But, an original resissue VF-19 Fire Valkyrie (Kai) costs $50 MISB, more than I want to pay... and the original VF-19 Blazer Valkyrie has never been reissued so a original one here would be $100-120.
    So therefore after being gone from ebay for a couple of months I found these two again, and this time I bought them, and yes they are oh-so-scary-originals-be-frightened-for-your-survival-bootlegs. The are actually made of quite durable plastic not far from the originals and with diecast metal. They have some sprue-marks and small indications of stressmarks at screw assemblies, but nothing you can't ignore. You may want to take your screwdriver and tighten the joints a bit, but other than that they are REALLY COOL... and to a price of $23 MISB for both you can't really complain. They are perfect for repaint/touch-up projects.

    Actually, I took care of the low, sort of. So I couldn't pose him with the cross in his hand, BUT, I drilled out the stuck peg, used another hand instead, and used the cloth and chain to wrap the cross(it came with an instruction sheet for wrapping a piece of cloth around it, heh.). So now he's smoking with a pistol in one hand, and a very nice looking cloth and chain wrapped cross standing behind him.

    If I didn't loan out my decent camera, I'd snap a picture. It's not quite what I wanted to do with it, but it probably looks better anyway.
