Here’s the Yamato Macross 1/60th-scale VF-1S Super Valkyrie, TV version!
Inside the box are two plastic containers, one holding the VF-1S and normal accessories, and the second one holding the super parts. There are also two instruction manuals and two decal sheets.
The major difference between this toy and the VF-1S TV Version without super parts is that this one comes with a Hikaru pilot figure, whereas the non-super-parts version comes with a Roy Fokker pilot figure.
Now let’s transform this guy and put the super parts on!
The Super Parts are a lighter gray than the Super and Strike Parts that come with a DYRL valkyrie. The DYRL version has more of a bluish gray.
The arm armor pieces are different in the TV Version and the DYRL version.
Another major difference between the TV Version and the DYRL version is that the leg locking mechanisms in the nosecones are different. Yamato improved the locking mechanism by widening the hole where you lock the metal leg hinge into. Because the hole is bigger in the TV version, it is much easier to lock the legs into place than in the DYRL version!
I also noticed that when detaching the air intakes from the back breastplate, it’s much easier to detach than previous versions of the VF-1.
Anyway, I really like the bright white color of the VF-1S in battloid mode!
Besides the black arrows on the side of the head in the TV version, does anyone else notice any differences between the TV version and the DYRL version?
