    Ok so I’m jumping on the Valk thread band wagon but after much searching of my Dads dirty old garage I found something I almost totally forgot about, my SD Valk. It’s vary old with warm paint, peeling stickers, loose joints and a lost set of armor but I bet few if any one here has one.

    So this is the sort of thing one tends to think of when they think of SD Valks

    But this is diffrent.

    Mine came in an American box and didn’t have the little person but it did come with the armor parts that have been lost as can be seen here [​IMG]

    Someone was just looking for one of those little VF-1S's that have the extra poseability. No one never did say where you can get those anymore though.

    The cockpit in the first pic looks photoshopped over for some reason.

    I love these little guys , had one when I was little but don't remember what happened too it. Would be nostalgia city If I ever found the little bastard

    Yeah, that was me. The one I ordered wasn't the one pictured here, so I cancelled it. Oddly enough, the SD Alpha morpher has more articulation and converts to all 3 modes.

    The only editing I did was tweeking the brightness and contrast (the pics came out dark) and I kicked up the sharpness.

    I will trade you mine for a 1/48 Yamato. :D

    I have that same VF-1s, with all the parts, I love it. I still remember my Mom buying it for me at a Department store who's name escapes me, but it wasn't a major Dept. store...

    I used to have that one. I also had the matching red and blue valks. Regretably, I sold them at a garage sale long ago along with most of my TFs from my childhood. Mine was in american packaging also and I think all three came with tiny figurines.

    I bought them all at one toy store along with the SDF-1 which I also sold dirt cheap before it was so valuable :cry

    I know these were re-released sometime in the past 3 years, although without the armor. I've got a couple of them and a limited edition chromed one in a tin.
