Entering Macross : Bandai RVF-25 Messiah Luca Custom

Publié le 6 Septembre 2009 par Hellric dans Mech & robots

After a quiet holiday period, time to present a new addition to my robot collection : my first step into the Macross world.
After long hesitations, my choice was the RVF-25 Messiah Luca Custom from Bandai.
I found the Yamato ones not detailed enough so I choose Bandai. I looked after the VF-25S but it was definitely too blocky, I wanted this RVF-25 not because of his discutable green colour, but because of the extra armor parts, the antenna blades AND the radar dome + different head from other VF-25's.
So as usual, I asked my Japanese friend to grab it at a very good price on Yahoo Japan. 
I'm very happy of this model, paints and detail are great (not so great as Fewture's though). The diecast content is not so big but placed in useful places, I mean in articulations, so it feels solid and stable. It's very elegant, and so has a great shelf presence, I think I made a good choice.
As accessories there are usual hands open, straigth and closed, additionnal armor parts (grey ones on pics) and a gatling gun.
With his height of 24 cm, it's the same size as others favourites of mine, I mean the Great Mazinger from Fewture and the Genesic Gaogaigar from Max Factory.

It also transforms in plane (Fighter) and in a mix of robot and plane (Gerwalk), but my favourite is the robot (Battroid).
