|This is Plastic Crack – posts, usually of video reviews, that continuously stimulate the collector passion through demonstration of a figure’s features. More importantly, these mainly comprise of items in the CATALOGUE wishlist.
Tamashii Nations just announced that they are finally expanding the ROBOT Damashii line to include the Labors from Patlabor. While really appreciated, it made this collector think of what to do with the purchased 1/60 kits Bandai reissued thanks to The Next Generation —PATLABOR—. Whether or not to ditch them and just get the ROBOT Damashii versions.
Someone fortunately did a recent build of the 1/60 Ingram kit and in the process, inspired this collector to go with the kits instead of getting the upcoming figures.
|Super Dimensional Fortress Macross II —LOVERS AGAIN— isn’t exactly the best entry in the franchise, so much so that no official work considers the events that occurred and is pretty much considered an alternate timeline.
Guess that’s the reason why it took more than 20 years for a decent representation of the Valkyrie II to come out. Similar to those released by Yamato/Arcadia, this figure is in 1/60 scale for display consistency. Likewise, it can also transform between Fighter, Gerwalk, and Battroid modes.
For weapons and accessories, it will include a gun pod and a Silvie Gena pilot figure.
