I haven’t watched the entire Macross 7 series yet, and am slightly hesitant because of how music is used as a literal weapon. However, when I saw Yamato release the VF-11C Thunderbolt, I was drawn to its appearance: I really like the bone-white look, and the curved nosecone. I also looked at the VF-11B, but the dull gray color scheme with orange accents doesn’t appeal to me.
I like the VF-11C best in its fighter mode.
The Super Pack consists of two boosters, and two pieces of leg armor, each of which attach with a small circular magnet.
There are some nice gimmicks: the cockpit is ejectable, and the white flat pointy piece you see between the legs is really a shield for the left arm.
If you’ve seen pictures of the VF-11C in an off-white/yellowish color scheme, those pictures came from an earlier prototype.
The VF-11C is slightly longer than the VF-1. Here’s a picture comparing it to the VF-1S Hikaru.
I bought the VF-11C from AmiAmi, at a 15% discount off the list price, and 50% off shipping!
