    Well, as I've searched long and far throughout the net, I stumbled upon a very interesting little tidbit for any Macross fans. Rumour has it that Yamato will be releasing another 1/48 scale low viz. I don't know if this is the same one as the limited edition, or whether it's going to be anything new. But hey, for anyone looking for a low viz, keep an eye out from pre-orders.

    Rumour also has it that a "stealth" valk will be released, which is presumably an all black paint (like the F-117 stealth fighter used by the U.S. Air Force).

    Thought I'd toss that out there.

    Where did you hear of these rumours? I highly doubt either of those at this point.

    There aren't any pics at this point. I believe that it's coming out since Yamato seems to be in full swing with re-issuing valks. It's been confirmed that the Low Viz won't be a re-issue but somehow different than the others.

    I read about this earlier today!! I am so freaking excited to finally get a Low-Viz Valk. The stealth sounds intresting too. Man, these things are like crack. You think you can just buy one but you keep wanting more and more.

    I hope something materializes out of this, been looking into buying at least one half decent Valk this year so if this thing is as cool as people seem to think it might I might have to look into this. Anybody got any pics of the one that apparently looks similar to the ones your talking about?

    This a link to a custom made low viz. Low Viz is just a gray vallkyrie. What I like about them is how they have a more realistic paint scheme.
    If you're looking for a great valkyrie toy I highly recommend any of the 1/48 scale Yamatos. They are fantastic.

    But yeah, so far it's just a rumour with a wee bit to back it up. So at this point it's pretty much speculation. No pix yet I'm afraid. Here's the original post:

    WB Cdn!! Well , for the time being atleast. Hope the schooling is going smooth.


    Just bought another Yamato (Ben Dixon) and the new VF-1 armor pack and I think Im going to lay low with the Yamato's for awhile. This set is a headache to keep together.
    That stealth does sound sweet though.
