    LOL there's a story 2 this 1 I actually bought this 2b used with the amazing head made by a fellow boardmember into Alpha Triton or sumtin...

    but soon as I got the figure I noticed the arms had been swapped,
    so while trying 2 correct this... I suddenly saw another possibilty

    so far this mod will only require soldering iron 2 get the inner attachment lose...
    then just press it between the toes (yeas it cracks, so I should've carved in a slot)

    (not sure yet if I'll try 2 transplant the shoulder armor.. onto the forearms?)

    C&C Welcome N'joy! :D 

    PS: I have a question about the 3rd pic of the (4me) very expensive FireValkyrie!
    I bought it some time ago 2 make a Masterpiece slipstream...
    But after holding it and paint it already awesome, can't stop seeing: FLASH CROSSOVER!!!
    since I don't collect those it would b sold, but what idea would make most $$$?

    UPDATE1:
    Well couldn't stop playing with it, but it's really hard 2 find a decent alt-mode :( 
    However I did lots of big mods now, inverted + swapped lower legs...
    carved out a lot 2 make the knee bend the otherway!
    Then carved out 5mm of plastic which was obstructing the foot from tilting
    And obviously cut the shoulder gaurds into 2 pieces leaving the small attached..
    and the bigger half mouted to the forearms
    (I did managed 2 get some hovercraft/spaceplane mode, but i'm not happy yet)

    PS: it's also not garaunteed that it will stay Kickback, the Ransack suggestion in great!!
    but somehow I might still go for Alpha Trion hehe :p 

    and about the voting, thanx ever1 4 ur time... I'll prolly go 4 my initial purpose of the figure: SLIPSTREAM, but incl. heavy modding

    leave the valk alone IMO. I collect macross as well, it actually makes for a good tformer on its own with MP and alt Collections.
    If you really want to sell it, go to macross world forums.

    I'd be inclined to spare the expensive Valkyrie, but if you really wanted to bash it, I have to admit that a Flash crossover is almost too great an idea to pass up. :) 

    But really... you'd be counting on transforming robot/Flash fans with deep pockets on that one.

    Where is the option to leave the Valkyrie alone? lol Sorry, I wouldnt mod it, but I collect Robotech/Macross stuff. The yellow vector prime looks an awful lot like Ransack or Kickback with his wings like that. More Ransack than anything

    That last pic would pass for a FOC Jetfire. It has that look to it.
