1/144 Chara-Works Minmay Guard









I got extremely tempted after seeing all the customized 1/144 valkyries Ant Sized Man had blogged about. So one fine day I happened to shop at Marine Square and saw a VF-1S Strike version of Minmay Guard. I had approach the staff wanting to buy however he had declined cos it was solely for display.

Filled with disappointment, I left but the first thing I do when I got home was to search the Internet for 1/144 Chara-Works Macross Valkyrie Collection Vol. 2 ~ VF-1S Strike Valkyrie (Minmay) Minmei's Guard Movie Version Miniature Model. So very lucky I managed to get it from MicroNation online Shop.

This 1/144 valkyrie to me is like an in between of model kit and toy. The material feels like kit which you need simple assembly. It comes with optional parts like, missiles, firepods, stand and landing gears. The decal ain't pre-painted but instead you need to self apply the water slide decal.

It's hard to put it back into and box so I have display it in my room together with the 1/72 scale.

This can't be transform but still it feels great to have this since there ain't many valkyrie toys in Minmay Guard form.

I'm not used to applying water slide decal and it caused a little panicky during the process. Ha! Ha!

LEon said...

I can understand that Dennis. I think if I try it maybe worst. LOL

very sweet find.

I have actually just pulled out my Transform Jetfire that was actually made by Bandai way back when. It has some yellowed parts, but I still need to get it photographed.

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

Wow! That's a vintage G1 Jetfire I suppose. You really do keep your toys.

Looks gorgeous - like it...

Thx bro! I like the details despite the small scale. The water decals makes it more real. It's now on my display cabinet together with the battroid Minmay Guard.
