I grew up watching a lot of afternoon TV in the 1980’s, and Robotech was one of the most fun to watch because it includes drama (particularly the love triangle among Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, and Lynn Minmay), really cool-looking/transforming mecha, and a very interesting storyline.
Robotech opened the door to anime. However, somehow I didn’t collect toys back then. Now, more than 20 years later, I stumbled across my first Yamato-built valkyrie in an anime store, the 1/48 Stealth VF-1J with Super and Strike Parts! I was amazed how true to the line art it was! So, I started collecting these toys.
In this blog, I’ll focus more on how a particular toy is true to the line art, or what emotional moment a particular toy reminds me of.
