    So I've been thinking about what I'd love to see from one of these companies and I keep coming back to one idea...

    A red armour kit / Jetfire conversion kit for the Macross 1/48 Valyries.

    In all fairness I'm amazed that Yamato haven't release a red armour set themselves to get some of the TF fans interested.

    Not a bad idea. I like Classics Jetfire so it would probably be something I would pass on.

    1/60th would be a better scale for classics, plus the newer perfect transformation. But yeah that is an awesome idea!

    I was thinking more for a scale that would go with MP/BTs but sure, the same could be done for the more Classics-scale line too. :) 

    I'm actually surprised there are no repro labels for such a conversion either. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    Aha - found a link. Custom 1/48 "Masterpiece" Jetfire - Macross World Forums

    See, something like that for those of us who have no painting skills/kitbashing skills.

    A custom Skyfire head would complete the kit nicely too.

    Why do we never get a Skyfire anyhow? We always get Jetfire butnever Skyfire...

    Same here. Plus, I already own a MIB G1 Jetfire.
    However... a fastpack set in the G1 style FOR Classics Jetfire? THAT I'd consider buying.
