    I'd really love for them to release a VF-11B.

    Also, you know since you just bought Max's VF-22S they'll reissue that one.

    That fire Valkyrie set they released was really nice. And crazy expensive. A reissue would probably sell well, even without the sound booster (as the tweet seems to indicate might be a factor in production cost).

    I don’t know where I’d put one but I’d probably sell stuff to make room.

    That YF-21/VF-22 is going to be tougher to be honest @betsuni as I’ll leave that with Bandai as they teased the DX YF-21 Omega One.

    Will be looking forward when the DX YF-21 does get released.

    Its a simple fun build. I got a couple of them around 30 years ago at my local supermarket where I also get my transformers kits.. not the ones at toys stores but the one that you have to build yourself and it comes with a pack of gum.. Those were my transformers back then. :) ..it were nice kits too. , it's too bad my Parents gave them away to my cousins.

    Back to these Bandai kits. IIRC the parts looks the same but because they have 4 kits in this package they did not mold the GBP parts in blue this time .. it just share the came color as the Strike parts. :( .

    You can panel line them with a pencil to give it a bit more detail... :)

    Noob asking for info. I just got this from Jp preowned. Want to know if her scale is compatible to Bandai HMR Vfs. Iirc the latter are 1/100. Any help greatly appreciated.

    They are close enough for it to work. Had that one and a couple of the pixie squad generics with my HMRs before I climbed out of that rabbit hole. :)

    They're not that scale compatible. The RD is way too small for the HM-R scale.

    In order for the RD Q-Rare to scale properly, it has to be at least close to the HM-R Regult sizing.

    Fun little build for the most part. It’s not finished yet, and the canopy trim paint needs another pass with a magnifying glass since the camera reveals my naked eye sucks for small details. :lol  Also the Elint looks kinda odd in white but I’m just doing these for fun and I don’t really care about accuracy or neatness in them so I doubt I’ll take the time to paint it. Also, glue is recommended for these but on this one everything fit tightly together like any snap kit so I didn’t end up using any.

    Are there any screws or poly caps used for the build?

    Four polycaps in the torso, no screws.

    this was years ago, and i only paid a little over $100 (if that much) for it new. it was floppy in fighter mode, would not stay together in Battroid, then worse when i changed it back. wasn’t worth the hassle of selling it and then someone trying to tell me i robbed them with them knowing it was a flawed Valk.

    Damn LOL

    Yea that and their VF-0 were designed in that in between phase after the 1/48 VF-1 and before the V2 1/60 VF-1. I’ve got no issue with them sculpt-wise but their build quality left a lot to be desired. Not as solid as the 1/48 nor V2 1/60 VF-1s.
