    I've always loved the fighter mode, but the battroid mode not so much. That price is tempting me though...

    I just noticed the price. That’s a steal.

    I think that's the lowest price I've ever seen for a Yamato 4.
    Steal is an understatement

    Yeah, anyone that doesn’t have one should jump on that.

    Video is region locked if anyone wants to see it on the Tube.

    So if anyone wishes to get the Bling Bling Overprice and Transparent 1j and breaks it during transformation, then whose fault is it specifically? :poke

    I am a big Macross Plus fan.
    With the roll out of the HMR VF-19 CUSTOM FIRE VALKYRIE this year. Will this lead soon to a HMR YF-19 from Bandai?
    That DX version looks great but too big. Need something in the 1/100 that isn’t a model.

    With Bandai who knows. We've been teased HMR and other stuff in the past that still haven't been released. Been waiting for the HMR Milia Q Rau that was teased seemingly eons ago. The current Hasegawa kit is way too big.

    The HG YF-19 kit is on the small side, but it's a pretty easy build and looks great in battroid.

    If you don't mind non-transforming action figures, you could also try to hunt down the old Yamato GNU Dou YF 19 and 21s. They are easily found in the aftermarket.

    Low price + the comment about cracks might mean it has some form of damage.

    To be on the safe side you could wait for an Arcadia one to pop up but it might not be as cheap. Wouldn’t say it’s very fragile. The Yamato release had more reports of loose joints(arms I think), not very many breakages for either the Yamato or Arcadia releases. My Arcadia VF-4G has missles and flaps that could pop off during transformation.

    I think Mandarake just a started adding the warning about cracks to Yamato Valkyrie listings just to be safe since they don’t offer returns/refunds IIRC and some cracks have developed years later(some cases more than 10 years later).

    I once got something from there with a warning about cracks and the toy itself had never been opened at all. Unless they show a closeup of the crack itself(and they normally will point out damage that sticks out with a closeup pic), I wouldn’t think the toy is actually damaged. Just be aware the VF-4G was released originally over 10 years ago so there is a chance that cracks may have formed near the pins.

    Yeah, they may just be issuing a crack warning for all Yamato valks, after the VF-1 incident. (though really, Bandai should get warnings too, for the -25/29 waist/nose hinges, and the -171's shoulder triangles)

    Lol maybe they assume people know because it became an almost common issue with Frontier DXs before the Revival versions were released.

    Goddam, the -1J is getting some love lately! It's great!

    That said, not sure I need a non-transforming VF-1J.

    Another sweet little morsel for my ongoing Tiny Session collection. Pretty much on par with the others.

    One side of the box filled! Hoping that other side will eventually fill with Sound Force, 11, 17, 21, VF-1… keep ‘em coming!

    The tiny session VF-19 Kai is borderline canon, it looks pretty close to the flower girl’s plush
