After a long wait, I finally received Yamato’s 1/60th-scale VF4-G Lightning III! After playing with it, I realize why it took so long to make. There are so many intricate parts, and the transformation is quite complicated, too.

Now, opening the box…
The top is protected by two layers of plastic
The VF4-G, two stand parts, two articulated hands, and a pilot. Wait, where’s the gunpod??
Bottom of the inside of the box. Nice labeling..
Instruction manual and sticker sheet
Fighter mode. Ah, looks just like it does in Flashback 2012, except this is a gray color scheme, not the white color scheme..
Close-up of the pilot
Close-up of the left engine booster. Looks like the booster on the VF-1 Fast pack.

Onto gerwalk mode!
The VF-4 is slightly difficult to stand up in gerwalk mode, because of the long nose.
And finally, battroid mode. It took a long time to transform from gerwalk mode!
Someone please tell me this is some booster/thruster, and not a speaker!
The build quality is superb: the VF-4 is heavier than the VF-1’s because there’s more die-cast metal. The shoulders, elbows, neck, and leg joints are all made of metal. A must for Macross fans!
