1/60 Chogokin DX VF-25 Alto

I have made mistakes to the transformation of DX VF-25 Alto on my last blogging attempt and hence I will re-blog it again with the recent photos taken. This time round, I have chosen a black background to give it better contrast since this toy is fairly white.

Bought this Alto’s custom VF-25F together with Ozma’s. The colour scheme of Alto’s VF-25F custom is similar to DYRL Hikaru’s VF-1A and that’s maybe because Alto is the main role just like Hikaru. VF-25 valkyrie is bigger if you compare its size with 1/60 Yamato VF-1.

Macross Frontier has a happy ending but the relationship of Alto, Ranka anf Sheryl was rather inconclusive. Some say that there would be a movie to the series and Alto would make his decision in the coming movie. I have placed my bet of Sheryl Nome. How about you?

Impressive detail all the way around. The figure is fairly detailed as well which is nice.

>> Asrul
It's a cool toy. Just that the toy is over S$250/-!

>> Bluedrakon
I would say it's fairly detail for a toy that has 3 transformation mode. Cos of these I have been following its toyline.

SUPERB !!! i barely watched 2 or 3 OVAs of this series & i was enchanted by these mechas... this colour scheme seems to me so classic & i like a lil’t bit more the other colour schemes available for some Macross like the VF-27 Lucifer Valkyrie Brera Sterne Custom or the RVF-25 Messiah Valkyrie Luca Custom... however i hav one VF-25 Super Messiah Alto Custom model kit in my future wishlist... =)

Your are not wrong in your prediction,in fact AltoxSheryl are pretty much the official luvluv couple by now

deSMOnd said...

Must be very expensive??

chubbybots said...

Woah black background as a contrast is so much better :D

I'll place my bets on Sheryl, she is hotter and more curvy at the right spots haha!!

Dennis: can you share how you do the photo with black background?

Where do u put the light?

>> G.G
It's better to focus on one collection to avoid having headaches on what to buy. Hee! Hee!

>> chrismandesign
Interesting to learn that you have ignite some interest in Macross.

>> Gunstray
Thx bro! The black cloth as backdrop cost me less than 3 Sing dollars.

>> LEon
I must admit, this Macross toy range to steep. Anyway for the quality.

>> franco
I seriously feel that Sheryl and Alto looks more an item.

>> deSMOnd
Yes! Expensive and above 250.

>> chubbybots
Using the black backdrop is my little tryout and thankfully it works. Sheryl's hot! Lol

>> Hi G.G again
There's no formula to it. I simply use a black cloth as the backdrop. No extra lightings since I took the pics during bright sunny day in my living room. Pics were taken using point-n-shot Cannon digital IXUS 80IS. I did process the pics using Adobe Photoshop CS & PhotoStudio to enhance the pics. Playing around by tuning the contrast, exposure and saturation.

Thanks Dennis.

But the thing is... I can't see the cloth. When I use my black board as a background, it reflected light. But your black cloth doesn't do that. What kind of cloth do u use???

Dennis aka Katsuden said...

It just the cotton fabric cloth that ain't silky so it would reflect light. On the original pic, I will see the background is cloth. What I do was to reduce the exposure, increase saturation, increase contrast.

Hello all!

I was trying to get some Viagra Online when I encountered this awesome site. The matter of fact over here is that i have always loved every single thing related to Macross and so, your column catched my eye as soon as I rest my eyes on it.

In short, I loved it!
