Yamato’s Battle Suit Queadluun-Rau Maximilian Jenius

At the beginning of the final battle scene in Macross the movie, we see Miriya and Max in Queadluun-Rau’s:


Yamato recently re-issued Max’s Queadluun-Rau, and it does not come with a Max action figure:


However, in CM’s Corporation’s Macross Figure Collection #3, there is a Max action figure, and it fits in this Queadluun-Rau!  But you have to remove Max’s feet.




Miriya’s action figure, made by Yamato, has no articulation.  Note that her feet are close together, so that the figure can fit inside the cockpit:


Here are some close-ups of Max:



I’m wondering why Yamato decided not to include the Miriya action figure.  I have one guess:  these action figures are made of PVC’s (polyvinyl chloride), which can emit odors.  And boy, do the CM’s Corporation’s Macross action figures smell!  I keep the Max action figure in a closed plastic display case.  If anyone has any advice on how to get rid of these odors, please let me know.  I read that keeping the figure in baking soda can help, but I tried that, and it didn’t help.
