The optional parts are two side covers (colored white) for the VF-1S in Battroid mode, as well as a cover for the back of the neck. Then there is the seat for the head that can be used to recreate a scene in the Macross anime where the pilot seat lifts up so that the pilot can embark or disembark in Battroid mode. Although the actual scene was done by the VF-1D Valkyrie in the anime and never by the VF-1S.
