So when you thought Toynami is gone for good after their Masterpiece series, they make a comeback with their Robotech scaled down 1/100 toy-line celebrating Robotech 30th Anniversary. The toy is presented in a box with transparent plastic window showing the actual figure in battroid mode. My first impression of the toy is that the plastic looks kind of low budget. When the box was opened, the backdrop card separate the figure from a set of accessories on plastic insert. Accessories include clear cockpit canopy, landing gears, missiles, rifle (Rifle attachable to the forearm without using clip), optional hands and display stand.
Honestly, I'm impressed with the ingenuity of the display as it can be assembled to support all three modes of this veritech fighter, as such allowing the toy to be displayed in various dramatic poses. The feet or afterburner are painted with some chrome. When I held toy in my hand, it feels light and made of cheap plastic. Then again the toy held itself well and the weight is well-distributed. At first, I'm pretty paranoid of breaking the frail plastic while transforming however the toy more durable than I imagined. Nothing break with occasional joints pop out. The toy is really nimble and extremely poseable. I would say this is nice toy to play with however lack the collection value. Personally, I think the toy's look can be enhanced by adding some panel lines. In plane mode, the toy seems to lack proportionality and landing gears too high.
