Macross VF-1D Arii Action Figure











Produced in year 1998. This action figure with strong nostagia was released to celebrate Macross 15th Anniversary. It’s a time when there was no reissue of any Macross toy and when the super posable Toynami range and Revoltech was unheard of. This is a rare collectible item in my collection that’s manufactured by ARII, and made in China. The action figure is apparently non-transformable (only presented in its battroid mode) and the articulations are limited. This action figure stands about 7” tall and it also comes with a figurine of Minmay that stands about 3" tall.

It's quite inferior compared to modern toys these days but I'm glad I have this as a doctrine of my collection when I started till now.

i’ve heard many times that the old times r better, the vintage toys even with their lack of detail have their own charm, specially ’cause they were the infancy’s toys for many collectors... this toy has a high nostalgia value i guess so =)

Oh yes! It's Rick Hunter aka Hikaru first jet fighter by accident.
