Production of Macross transformable valkyrie toys had been lucrative for Yamato. But with all the success the company had achieved, I'm puzzled why they went into making action figures of Macross battroid. Feels like the company down graded itself. Well, this is still quite a decent action figure of YF-19 from the series Macross Plus with fairly good sculpt. It stands around 6" so it's about the same height as the later Gundam MSIA figures. Thoughtful of Yamato that the packaging is in a box so collectors can keep the figure after play and having a box increases the storage value. The accessories that come this figure is pretty straight forward with just option hands and a rifle. Articulation of limbs are fairly ok but definitely inferior to Revoltech. If you are going for plastic quality and a figure with sturdy pose, try GN-U Dou mecha figures.

i think Yamato must think both in the high & low budget purchasers, is the way the market works & not only in toys matters... this figure has a neat paint job & sculpt, so yep is more than decent & the finishing is better than that u can expect from a Revoltech version, is a nice acquisition indeed pal =)

hmm judging from the picture, overall this is recommended action figure to buy and you describe it with simple word but strong inside :D

I was never sure if I liked the nose cone in the front like that in these design.

I am old school and had a hard time accepting these as 'macross'.

I think you are right about catering to different types of purchasers. I have the 1/60 version but still I got this during an offer.

Ha! Ha! There's nothing too special about this toy but I like the quality of it.

The design is indeed different from most of the valkyries from the 1st Macross 'Super Dimension Fortress'. If you have noticed, sequel Macross valkyrie takes the design of YF-19. A example is 'Fire/Blaze Valkyrie' from Macross 7 - VF-19
