Update: Recently posted at Yamato Toys youtube page were two videos demoing the transformation sequence, here.

Update: More pictures again posted at the Yamato Toys site, here.

Posted today at Yamato Toys official site was the product information for the VF-17S Diamond Force ver. Just got giddy after seeing this. To be honest, I'm not really a fan of the Macross 7 anime, but despite that I am forever a fan of the brilliant designs of Shoji Kawamori.

From this view, those hands sure look impressive, when you compare it against the regular hands of Yamato's VF-1 series. Unless of course those are optional hand types which don't open up and are of a fixed design, wherein they are really supposed to be impressive and functional... hehehe
