Special Display Base for DX Chogokin VF-27 Under Development?

Tamashii Web has a detailed introduction on the already released 1/60 DX Chogokin VF-27γ Lucifer Valkyrie Brera's Unit, and a couple of very interesting points are mentioned. ^^

Double joint design grants a much wider articulation range for the elbow

The leg can rotate horizontally at the knee level, a feature not possible for VF-25 from the same series according to Tamashii Web.

The feet can connect with the surface firmly.

A large section of the wings is fixed.

Storage of the arms and shoulder mode in Fighter Mode.

Design of the details inside and outside the figure is supervised by Shoji Kawamori-sensei.

Pilot figures of Brera Sterne and Ranka Lee are included.
The canopy is made of both clear and painted parts.

Landing gears are made to be of much better quality than VF-25 in design and shape.

The shield is much thinner than that of VF-25. The knife can be retracted.

The part to hold the Beam Gunpod is designed to be contained inside the Fighter mode. So no part-swapping required when the weapon is to be mounted to the Fighter.

Landing gear right in the middle of the Gunpod's barrel ^^;

The air duct unit inside the chest can be removed to show it in open/close modes.

Super Fold Booster unit from Tamashii Web Shop's Galia 4 Fold Set for /60 DX Chogokin VF-25F Michael's Unit works well on VF-27γ as well.

Special poster featuring Sheryl Nome illustrated by Risa Ebata (江端里沙) included for the first batch of release.

Poster featuring Ranka Lee is for VF-25F Tornado Messiah Valkyrie Alto's Unit (March release, 17,850 inclusive of tax).

Combination of both posters.

1/60 DX Chogokin VF-27γ Lucifer Valkyrie Brera's Unit is 16,800 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Also, from the same article, Tamashii Web mentioned that with the landing gear, plus the stability of the Gerwalk mode, a display base is not exactly needed. But a display base with adjustable angle is currently under development anyway. To be sold separately. ("現在、角度調整できる別売り台座を開発中です").

Tamashii Web Shop limited item maybe? ^^;
