    Wee bit skinnier but doesnt looks as derpy as the old one. The all green cockpit was from the movie i think when he got free from whoever was controlling brera i cant rememeber the exact details but it was in the final battle. Im finally super excited for another Valk :D  I love the design of the 27 and was kinda sad when i sold the old one but i knew the renewal was inevitable. This time lets all be more careful with the nose cone paint :lol

    Only when nobody is looking. :lol 

    But yeah, using break time to check out a new toy is usually more enjoyable than sitting in the break room listening to people chew with their mouths open.

    I think the toes are also larger than before. Most likely, Bandai also implemented the hip transformation of the 25 renewals as well as the neck hinge system since it looks like the neck sits higher than before.

    So where's the kiss/lick picture of the new valk? :D 

    Your right the clear green canopy was from the second movie before he flew into the varja queen controlled battle frontier thingy.

    That new backpack on the 27 reminds me of the sound booster

    I'm sooo glad I sold my 27 v1 for $330 a while back. Been waiting for a v2 some time now.

    So it's on the Tamashi website so it will be exclusive, right? Doesn't that mean HLJ won't carry it?

    Wonder if the canopy has to be taken off to be switched or if it's an attachment that doesn't require the complete removal of one for the other.

    LOVING the FAST Pack, especially the central intake.

    Also liking the added tampo.

    So yeah, if anyone wants my v1 RVF-25 and 27, I'll be selling them for cheap! :D

    Got my -171 this morning (N-Y via EMS). Wow, left Osaka the 30th, Chicago the 1st, Iowa today. No missing parts from my brief check.

    As for the new -27: I did not expect so many changes. Must have Grace's if they make it.

    If Tom's face kills a single pixel in Ron's monitor, my bearded mug would likely cause a mass extinction.

    Great. Another one I can't have. NY needs a competitor so I can order these things again.

    Let it be known that MatrixSoul/Tom is BROMEGA SUPREME. He just hooked me up with a crazy Amazon.jp VF-171 CF purchase.

    Wont have time to transform it until tonight, but the 171 is pretty great in fighter mode. All the markings bugged me on Alto's but they look less busy to me here, probably because they aren't so pronounced against the darker background. The new canopy looks fantastic.

    Swoosh test!

    And I'll insert a buffer here in the interest of preserving Razerwire's pixels...











































    Lick test!

    Opened and transformed mine. No loose wobbly leg! What a fricken revelation!

    One of my shoulder covers fell off though. The screw was either stripped or not screwed all the way in. I managed to put it back together but if the screw hole is stripped, I might just glue it together.

    Oh an I have a paint scratch on the edge of one of the winds. I just know that's going to drive me nuts. :lol
