Macross HI-METAL VF-1S Super Valkyrie (Ichijyo Hikaru's Fighter)

Release : Japan
Sale price$130.00

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the TV version of "Macross" with this all-new "HI-METAL R" VF-1S Super Valkyrie!

Hikaru Ichijo's ride features a Super Pack (with a conformal tank, high-speed thruster, FAST pack, micro missile pod and micro missile launcher) that can be detached; the Valkyrie can of course transform into all three of its stages.

A newly shaped head, more rounded hands, arm missile pods and more have been painstakingly created according to the on-screen image, and new detail-up parts for its flank and upper chest increase the amount of detail when it's in Battroid mode.

The landing gear can be attached when it's in its Fighter form, and a large anti-ship reaction bullet is also included.

  • Main figure
  • Pilot figure
  • Replacement laser machine gun (closed, left and right)
  • Interchangeable hands (x5 left, x3 right)

What is the difference between USA, Chinese and Japanese releases?

Sometimes we can offer a product with both a domestic and international release. Though the specifics may change, here are some key differences:

  • The Japanese release will be sourced from Japan and be just as it is released there
  • The Chinese release will be sourced from China and is usually identical to the Japanese release (we note if there are differences) aside from package labeling.
  • The USA release will be imported through a distributor and thus may contain translated instructions and will benefit from domestic support should something go wrong with your item
  • Chinese releases usually occur around the same time as Japanese releases, but due to additional processing required, they tend to arrive 3-6 weeks later than the Japanese release.
  • USA releases typically trail the Japanese release by 1-2 months, however they do not receive firm release dates. Dates provided are estimates only and can vary based on various factors
  • ALL releases are available to ship worldwide from our location in the USA

If you care about getting the product as authentic as possible, or as soon as possible, then you'll likely want the Japanese release.

If you want it relatively soon at a middle price-point, the Chinese releases are often the best bet.

However, if price and domestic warranty support are more important and you are willing to wait, you'll benefit from the USA release.
