New shots of the 1/2000 Macross SDF-1 HDP Prototype

Update:: Found out that this available at HLJ, but you have to contact them directly by email because of the price.

More updated shots of the 1/2000 Macross SDF-1 Prototype resin kit by Yamato Toys. Price for the kit is still an eye opening 210,000 yen. Based from my understanding of the literature, they will only be able to produce 10 kits per month of this behemoth.

If you find the price too steep, you can always try building your own Macross SDF1 using everyday materials found in your hardware store.
