The red, hot and saucy Veritech Fighter customed for Millia has striked. It was assigned to Millia after she was married to Max Sterling and had pledged her alliance to U.N Spacy. We have come to the last second issue of Toynami's Masterpiece Robotech Veritech Fighter (Volume 5). In this post, I will also cover the Super Veritech Armor Appendix-C, specially tailored for Millia's Veritech Fighter. Again, this Masterpiece Veritech Fighter is limited to 10000 pieces in production which came nicely in a classic book cover casing. It's production was before Yamato's Valkyries, but Toynami had improvised on Takatoku's 1/55 Valkyrie design and rectified the issues collector faced in chunky monkey.
A swiveling joint was incorporated into the legs of the Veritech at the thigh. The thigh joint makes for a dynamic pose in Guardian mode. The nose of the Veritech Fighter was lengthen slightly compared to the Chunky Monkey. With the extended nose, the detail in the cockpit was increased and enabling openable canopy. One special feature of the Toynami Masterpiece that give an edge over other Macross toy-makers is the LED light in the eye visor incorporated to bring the robot to life just a bit more. The switch and battery compartment were cleverly designed to fit between the head and landing gear. A plastic barrier was placed in the ring surrounding the neck, so as to prevent the head from twisting around past 180 degrees, and possibly causing a disruption in the LED wire.
Super Veritech Armor Appendix-C is tailored to suit the colour scheme of Millia's Veritech Fighter. You won't see the problems with breaking the fastening parts in the legs, like those in vintage chunky monkeys cos Toynami had cleverly used magnetic force to hold the armor to the legs. As for the armor on the hands, it's done by extendable fastener. The front portion of the booster can be detached and he outer casing of the leg armor can also be removed to show some details of the interior.
