1/60 DX Chogokin VF-27 Lucifer and VF-25 Tornado Messiah

Update 11/11/2009: The 1/60 DX VF-27 Lucifer is up for pre order already at various online shops.

This was posted a few days ago at Hobby Stock and I totally missed it. Pictures of the Bandai DX Chogokin (Hyper Alloy) 1/60 VF-27 Lucifer of Brera Stern as seen in the Macross Frontier TV series. Samples of the DX VF-27 were seen at the Tamashii Nation Autumn Show.

Here's a shot of what I'm assuming to be an unpainted prototype.

Also shown in their blog post was the VF-25 Tornado Messiah of Alto Saotome that will be seen in the Macross Frontier movie. Its basically just new armor packs for the DX Chogoukin 1/60 VF-25 Messiah. My personal opinion however of this design is that it totally sucks. The part of the two oversized long range cannons that is.
