    Looks Sweet but 1 question?? Do you have to remove the legs to transform him or do they just flip forward? If the come off to transform then its a waste of a good sculpt for me.

    According to CDNShockwave, it's going for $160...
    From the pics, it looks like it has the same transformation process for the legs as do the 1/48 line... So here's hoping that's the case... :thumb

    ITS PERFECT TRANSFORMATION NO PARTS REMOVAL FOR TRANSFORMATION~!!!

    Though its smaller scale, the physical toy itself is a bit longer in fighter mode than the 1/48 VF-1 and roughly similar in size in battroid mode.

    In true scale, the VF-0 dwarfs the VF-1 by a considerable measure. So a 1/48 VF-0 would be substantially bigger than the 1/48 VF-1 moreso than the 1/60 VF-0 already is as it is.

    Positive proof? Ken, this one is perfect transformation man, the 1/100 that got CANNED(thank god that thing was a monstrocity!) was SUPPOSED to have removable parts, and it did. For a while we heard nothing of it and found out it was cancelled.

    Then out of nowhere yamato posted up autocad drawings of a perfect variable 1/60 VF-0S. If you go to macross compendium it should say perfect variable and its stated across the japanese boards and of course macrossworld. In fact the mere fact that it was perfect variable has been known for quite some time now. The 1/48 VF-1 and 1/60 VF-0 seem to have very similar transformations EXCEPT, due to kawamori's design, the VF-0 may actually have a simpler transformation(the VF-1's hands as by design retract into the forearms, the VF-0's hands do not retract at all, and the heatshield for the VF-1 internally folds, while the VF-0's shield does not go internal at all, merely bends and is on the top fueselage in fighter mode instead of tucking underneath the chest plate like the VF-1(EXACTLY how it is in the anime boys so this thing is pretty darn accurate as well).

    I myself am waiting on initial qc reports before I put in some money on this thing. But man its tempting...cept for that high price!

    It's a sweet looking fig but since I got all the Bandai and Toyami line of Valkyries I don't feel like shelling out $160 for it.

    I am in the same boat King. I have all of the Toynami line of Valks and Alphas and am wondering on if I should pull out $160.00 on this fig. It looks great and all but if I bought this one I would have to get others that came out in teh same scale and detail and that would cut back on my TF funds. So I dont know yet and my wife was looking at me with that "Dont even ask to increase your toy fund money" look. So probly not but maybe just that one. Arrrrrg I dont know!?!?!?!
