Macross DX Chogokin VF-1J Valkyrie Highlight Video Featuring Shoji Kawamori

A special video uploaded to Bandai’s YouTube channel features Shoji Kawamori, the original creator of Macross, going over details of the upcoming DX Chogokin VF-1J Valkyrie (Hikaru Ichijo Type).

Macross holds a bit of significance to Transformers as an early toy of one of the VF-1 variations was brought over as the Autobot Jetfire. Kawamori himself was involved in the design process of the original Diaclone Convoy that would become Optimus Prime and would later design MP-03 Masterpiece Starscream as well as Hybrid Style G1 Convoy.

DX Chogokin VF-1J Valkyrie (Hikaru Ichijo Type) stands at approximately 270 mm and is scheduled for release in December 2018 with a suggested retail price of 19,440 yen. Thanks to TendouToys on Twitter for the news.
