Revoltech Expo 2009 - Macross

Kaiyodo revealed a big surprise at this year's Revoltech Expo with their brand new lineup of transformable Valkyries that I translate as Revoltech 3 Mode Change Valkyrie. No official English translation of the series yet but that's my take on the name translated in English.

Each Valkyrie can switch between three of its main modes: Fighter, Gerwalk, and Battroid. You'll need to do some parts swapping and attaching stuff though like the canopy piece, hands, and possibly the head.

First to be released will be Roy's VF-1S Movie ver. due out in January.

Looks decent from top down in Fighter mode but it does look kinda fat from the sides.

Hikaru's VF-1J TV version.

Hikaru's VF-1A movie version.

Retails for 2,400 yen (inclusive of tax) each. Proportions just doesn't look right to me. I'll stick with Yamato's 1/60 Valkyries instead. What do you think about Kaiyodo's transformable Valks?
