Online retail giant, Amiami, posted on their blog today photos of Bandai's and other Model Manufacturer's items on display at the 49th All Japan Model Hobby Show 2009 (第49回 全日本模型ホビーショー). The show started today, October 8 2009 and will run till the 11th. The venue is at Makuhari Messe, Chiba.

More shots of Brera Stern's VF-27 Lucifer that Bandai is offering as a 1/72 kit was shown.

What stole the show however for Macross fans was a new VF-25F design from the upcoming Macross Frontier Movie. I'm not so keen however to the design. Then again, depending on how good the movie is, I might just be swayed to change my mind about it...hehehe. I'm guessing that this is just an optional armor pack similar to the fast packs and armored packs that can be worn on the regular VF-25 Messiah's.

Also added to the 1/250 Macross Fighter Collection was the new VF-25 Design and the YF-25 Prophecy.

There was this sign posted that means: Emotion Style, Next Character, Ranka Lee, Sheryl Nome. PVC Figure plus the title of the Macross Frontier Movie

Could mean that they'll be showing soon on the Bandai display some new figures of Ranka Lee and Sheryl Nome related to the movie. Macross Frontier Merchandising is definitely gearing up for the showing of the movie on the 21st of November.

Also shown there was the much anticipated 1/60 Perfect Grade Gundam Raiser Double O from Gundam 00

Not sure, but is this a prototype figure for Mylene Jenius and Lynn Minmay in a bathing suit from Wave Corporation? The signage is cut but I can make out the starting characters for Macross as well as the name "Lynn Minmay." I guess this was from the episode where Mylene went to the Riviera recreation ship in Macross 7, while the Lynn Minmay figure is from the Miss Macross contest. Update: Confirmed from Akiba Hobby Blog that it is indeed Mylene and Minmay
