Today I saw that Yamato is releasing some "25th Anniversary" Valkyries, including the 1/48 VF-1S and the 1/60 YF-19. I liked (most) of what I saw...I like the black...and that was about it. Their faces are so plain (unpainted visors), the black is so monotonous, and the usually-welcomed Tampo printings are too excessive. The many "25n Anniversary" logos really gave this toy a showy quality that I think hurts the overall aesthetic. In case anyone wants a look: http://www.macrossworld.com/macross/toys/25thyf-19/25thyf19.htm It took only about 5 seconds before I thought that one can easily fix this toy with a few quick paint apps. I used Photoshop and made some paint jobs that ought to be easily done once someone gets the toy. I removed the Tampo printings, changed the gold to purple, gave him a gold canopy, and a red visor, and that's it. I think the difference is like night and day. Even better is that (in my opinion) a skilled painter can get this done in maybe half an hour. It's not as hard as (for example) turning Classics Prime into Nemesis Prime. And, whether or not this is a satisfactory Skywarp repaint, I have to say that I think it looks better without the gold or the printings. In any case, this toy seems pretty rife with repaint possibilities. I tried adding Decepticon logos onto it, but I couldn't make it look right. Here's some examples of what I tried: 1. Putting the logo on the chest seemed like a good idea, but that would mean the logo ends up on the tip of the nosecone in jet mode. Didn't like it. 2. Putting the logos on the shoulders seemed like an even better idea. All the better that the shoulders end up facing outwards in jet mode. However, the shoulders have such small real estate that the logos would have to be tiny logos. Didn't like it. 3. I actually really liked how it looked to have the logo on the wings (upside down! ) but the wings transform in such a way that any printings on it aren't visible in jet mode. 4. My best bet seemed to put it on the shield, but the shield becomes the jet mode's rear end, between the engines. It seemed like a strange place to put the logo, so I didn't do that either.
