Arii is better known for their Macross model kit so this action figure released during Macross 15th anniversary can say to be a daring attempt. Well, nice effort but strangely, I have not seen Max's valkyrie appearing like this in the anime series or movie. Given a VF-1J head would be more appropriate I think? Anyway, I won't mind having this unique action figure in my collection especially when it's a birthday gift from my wife ages a long. This is a non-transformable 8" action figure and the rifle is the only accessory. Limited articulation as the limbs can only go back and forth. Thankfully, there are elbow joints and the cannon at the rear can rotate forward. As a novelty, a figure of Max was thrown in so to give Macross fans more reason to buy it. This battroid figure had been on my display for more than a decade so this photography session allows the figure to have a thorough clean up.
