1/60 DX Chogokin Galia 4 Messiah Valkyrie Fold Set for VF-25

Tamashii Galia 4 Messiah Valkyrie Fold SetUpdate: The bad news is that it is exclusive for Tamashii club members, the good news is that it is available at overdrive, the bad news is that order taking has already stopped...the good news is that it looks like a waste of money anyway...hehehe

Announced yesterday on the Tamashii site that pre-orders are being taken of the Galia 4 Messiah Valkyrie Fold Set for Michael Braun's VF-25. The kit will cost about Y5,250 Yen. Order taking started yesterday and will end on May 20 (3PM, Japan time I think). Expected release date is on July 2009. And you have to keep in mind that Michael Braun's VF-25 is not included in the kit.

Macross Frontier Fans will remember this as having appeared in the episode titled "Fastest Delivery". Where Alto Saotome, Sherly Nome and Grace O'Conner are hostaged in Galia 4 by some Zentraedi Battalion. The Zentraedi were demanding entertainment, so Sherly was requested to perform. But since Sheryl wasn't able to perform because she was sick the Zentraedi used this as an excuse to go berserk on their commanders. Michael and Ranka borrow an experimental fold booster to get there on time and fly in to save the day.

Included in the set are:


  1. Fold Speaker - 4 Speaker Pods, placed on the wing - I don't think any further explanation is needed. All that has to be said is "Ore no Uta Kike! (Listen to my song)

  2. The Super Fold Booster - This was developed by LAI and lent to SMS so that Michael could get there in time. The difference with this fold booster from the regular types is that it isn't affected by fold faults in space that results in longer time and more energy consumption for vehicles that execute folds.

  3. A 1/60 scale Ranka Lee Figure - about 25mm in height. Not sure if this is painted. If it wasn't, it sure would be a difficult thing to paint at only 25 mm. Seikan Hikou anyone?
