The rocket booster that comes with the super packs of each VF-1J differs from the regular booster pack being sold by Yamato because it also follows the color scheme of Max and Milia's in the television series.

There was also an optional gimmick being sold by an external company for Milia's VF-1J and this was the Baby Carrier of Komilia that was seen in the TV Series of Macross.

Whatever happened to Max's VF-1J fighter after the original series ended is unknown, Milia's however reappeared in Macross 7. It was kept by her as a personal fighter. During an attack on City 7, she took flight again on her VF-1J and used it to defend the city. When she was incapacitated, Gamlin of Diamond Force rode her VF-1J into battle. When she saw it explode on screen she screamed in anguish at the loss of it, calling it her very important Valkyrie. Gamlin was Ok of course.
