Hi, Everyone!

The 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show 2017 (www.hobby-shizuoka.com) is happening 5/11 to 5/14 in Japan.

Who is ready for the Max Factory PLAMAX 1:20 Macross (or Robotech: The Macross Saga to Westerners) VF-1A/S Valkyrie?

Max Factory is at the show and is showing off some test sprue trees for this giant 711.5mm (28.011811 inches) long kit.

There will also be an in-scale 1:20 Lynn Minmay kit that will be sold separately.

Check out the attached pictures!

Stay tuned...

:)

Hi, Everyone!

The 56th Shizuoka Hobby Show 2017 (www.hobby-shizuoka.com) is happening 5/11 to 5/14 in Japan.

The other day, Max Factory showed off some of the test sprue trees to their planned PLAMAX 1:20 Macross VF-1A/S Valkyrie.  Now they threw in a surprise...a 1:20 Macross VF-1S Valkyrie Gerwalk mode model!

Check out the attached pictures!

Stay tuned...

That Valkyrie looks awesome but I can imagine it being a bit pricey? :(

I saw it in-person at Tokyo's All-Japan Model Hobby Show last September. Pretty big! The Gerwalk looks fantastic as well. I imagine the price will be close to 20,000 yen.

This year was my first not attending the Shizuoka Hobby Show since I moved to Japan in 2012. I used to be a convenient train ride away from the event, but this past winter I moved to Gunma Prefecture, so far away. I didn't have the money for a trip. I will focus on the Summer Wonder Festival instead.
