Yamato's VF-1 Super & Strike Parts Weathering Ver. & Special Campaign

Yamato announces a special Super and Strike Parts Weathering Ver., made specially for the following items from the 1/60 Complete Transformation VF-1 series with special weathering effect:

- VF-1S Valkyrie Max's Unit (Yamato Web Shop limited release)
- VF-1J Valkyrie Hikaru Ichijo's Unit (Hyper Hobby limited release)
- VF-1S Valkyrie Roy Focker's Unit (Yamato Web Shop limited release)
- VF-1S Valkyrie Hikaru Ichijo's Unit (Dengekiya limited release).

Since it's meant for various limited VF-1 figures, this add-on pack will be a limited release itself ^^; To be available on Yamato Web Shop next year. Release date & price TBA.

On a related note, Yamato also announces a special campaign dedicated to the 1/60 Complete Transformation Macross series on its web shop.

There are two parts to this "Macross Series Campaign":

Part 1: A customized display stand will be included for the first 200 customers who purchase on Yamato Web Shop when the campaign opens. The display stand is suitable to be used for the VF-1 series.

Part 2: Lucky draw - for all selected items in the campaign. Prizes include:

vmf50 Lynn Minmay in Chinese dress - 1 pick.

1/60 Complete Transformation YF-19 25th Anniversary Commemorative Model - 1 pick.

Macross Display Stand - 3 picks.

Set of 5 GN-U "Do" Action Figures - 3 picks.

1/60 Complete Transformation VF-1S Valkyrie Roy Focker's Unit, Hikaru Ichijo's Unit with Super & Strike Parts Plus, VF-1J Hikaru Ichijo's Unit with Armor Parts with Shoji Kawamori's signature - 1 pick for each of the three.

16 selected items for this special campaign can be seen on Yamato Online Shop Yahoo! Store.

This should be a Yamato Web Shop limited campaign I suppose, where you are only eligible to the stand, or the lucky draw only if you purchase through Yamato directly. I doubt if other websites that also sell Yamato's 1/60 Macross series are also involved in this special offer. ^^;
