The Nifty Macross Keychain

Thinking about getting the 1/60 VF-1S Hikaru or Roy valkyrie with Super and Strike Parts “Plus”?  The “Plus” refers to a nifty Macross keychain that comes taped to the underside of the plastic that encloses the toy.  If you really want to be reminded of Macross every day, now you can carry this keychain with you!

About three inches long, the keychain comes with 4 very small AG3 “button cell” batteries, which stack on top of each other in the back of the keychain, the part with the key ring.  The other end of the keychain twists off, revealing a piece of plastic with a skull emblem inside.  When you press the small button above the “AC” in “MACROSS” (the white plastic to the right is to cover the button to prevent pushing it), you see a cool image:

As you can see, the image is not clearly in focus because the plastic lens isn’t of high quality.

Later, I’ll take a look at the valkyrie itself!
