1/72 Transformable YF-25 Prophecy Review

If you recall, this 1/72 Transformable YF-25 Prophecy is a limited plamo kit released by Bandai for Famima Dot Com's advance sales of tickets for Macross Frontier Theatrical Version. Pre-order can only be done through the website.

This release is apparently from the first batch of pre-order, when the release date was last week. There are another three different periods of pre-order and release, as shown below:

(1) Pre-order: September 1st - 14th, release: October 8th - 12th (over)
(2) Pre-order: September 15th - October 5th, release: October 23rd - 27th
(3) Pre-order: October 6th - 19th, release: November 5th - 9th
(4) Pre-order: October 20th - November 2nd, release: November 14th - 18th

The model kit also comes with a nationwide accessible (Japan) advance cinema ticket for Macross Frontier Theatrical Version.

Anyway, Aoi Model Shop has a review on this kit:

Double packaging, with Sheryl Nome on the back cover ^^

From the looks of it, YF-25 can be equipped with Super Pack or Armored Pack as well? ^^

Another Famima Dot Com's limited Macross merchandise coming up is VF100's VF-25Fm Messiah Valkyrie (Family Mart Color Ver.). See this previous posting for more information.
