Clear Fast Pack Covers ~ 1/48 Macross Valkyrie










With perseverance you will success and this applies to toy collection as well. It's amazing to see how rapid Aaron expands his collection in such a short time. Here's another hard to get item from Yamato 1/48 valkyrie toyline. Yes, I'm referring to this limited edition clear parts that was only available via mail order through Dengeki Hobby Magazine a few years back. With this clear parts, Yamato was able to showcase their excellent quality and details even on the inner frame. I have used some of the pics which I had taken before I sold away mine a long time ago whereas most of the pics were contributed by Aaron.

This concept is the same as Gundam with clear parts!

Bro, why did you sell yours if this figure is awesome??

chrismandesign said...

this collection figure is massive in every sense & i think that to watch it in person must b even more rewarding =OOOOO

Clear parts make for very nice display especially with the kit that features great internals!

clear parts for yamato products are much more rare compared to bandai's. With the intricate details on the 1/48 scale valkyrie, it definitely looks great.

I got this as part of a set from an ebayer. $475 for a 1/48 Roy VF-1S, with Super Strike Parts and the Clear Covers.

But somehow, Clear covers just look better on a Red Hikaru. Think its the combination of the red, white, dark green and clear parts.

Reviews online say this is a waste of money, as if I wanted to show off the internals, just remove the normal FAST pack covers. But I beg to differ as i feel they may have missed the point. It's an entirely different look.

No regrets on this, though I would have preferred it if my Strike parts were a darker shade of green for added contrast. :)

Cos great toy companies share the same idea. Lol...

Gave up on 1/48 toyline but I started DX Macross Frontier which is a great toyline with metal composite too.

>> chrismandesign
Yes bro, it's rare toy parts that grown the valkyrie and worth showcasing.

>> chubbybots
Yamato is certainly proud to show off their good workmanship even on the internal of valkyrie.

>> sl619
Yamato has really established themselves well over the years even since their first Macross Plus valkyries. I wonder what's in store next.

>> Aaron
You are right bro, reviews could only give opinions and in the end, it still voices down to whether you like the toy. Toy collection is something really based on you feel about it personally.

Aaron said...

Exactly Dennis, toy collecting is like watch collecting. It's deeply personal and your tastes will differ from others.

But what I can't stand is when people go "eee", or "Wah, you spend so much? Waste money", or "I rather buy ".

My view is that in the same way I refrain from commenting on how others spend their money on their hobbies, similarly, they should keep their mouths shut whenever they want to comment on our toy collections.

From now on, if some fool decides to provide their unwelcome comments on my beloved Macross collection, I shall have to put them in their place. =D

Know what I mean? How many of you have ever had to justify your toy purchases?

It really showcases the coolness of the parts with he clear views. I have not seen this at all for any of the Macross line.

I think this should be a key idea for a clear version of the Valkyrie.

What Aaron said is true...
Some people like to say that...
Wasting money and bla bla bla...
My Aunt had said that to me too because of my Anime collection...
(including Gunpla,DVD,action figure and cosplays prop)
But I think, she is a God of wasting money...Buying branded bags like Gucci,Jimmy Choo,Prada and Guess bag...only using it once and then put in the closet...
Who the one that wasting money?
