Yamato 1/60 VF-1S Roy Fokker Low Visibility Edition

Yamato 1/60 VF-1S Roy Fokker Low Visibility Edition

Update: Official page of the Low Visibility VF-1S is already up at Yamato's Website. Me thinks Yamato forgot to turn on the lights when they took pictures of this *snicker*

Hobby Stock's coverage of the 48th Shizuoka Hobby show has them going over to the Yamato-Toys stand. One shot they had was of Roy Fokker's VF-1S in low visibility colors. According to them it will cost around Y10290 yen and will be out by fall 2009.

Some other items they featured were the 2 new 1/60 YF-19 Color schemes that Yamato is going to sell, the Bird of Prey and Double Nuts version. There also was the 1/60 VF-1 Elint Seeker featured in Macross DYRL (albeit for a very very short time).

I think there was a little boo-boo on Hobby Stock's part by referring to it as "Bandai's" VF-1S instead of Yamato's... hehehe

48th Shizuoka Hobby Show, boy, wish I was there.

Update: Additional Info and pictures from Yamato's Website with regards to the VF-1S low visibility

According to the literature from the site, this is supposed to be the transition aircraft when Roy Fokker first moved from his VF-0 Phoenix to a VF-1 Valkyrie.

Most also likely why the Roy Fokker figure here resembles greatly the suit in the VF-0 version.
