1/60 VF-0A Phoenix Reissue New Images & DX Chogokin VF-27γ Special Article

New images of Yamato's 1/60 Complete Transformation VF-0A Phoenix.

As reported in early February, this Macross unit will be reissued in April along with VF-0S at 17,640 Yen each (inclusive of tax).

Images are from Yamato's official blog.

On the other hand, Tamashii Web has a very special article on the already released DX Chogokin 1/60 VF-27γ Lucifer Valkyrie. Soichiro Hoshi (保志総一朗), who voiced for Brera Sterne in "Macross Frontier" was invited to review and talk about this action figure, as well as his own experience with the hobby ^^

Soichiro Hoshi's favorite release from Tamashii Nation at the moment are the limited Robot Damashii [Side KMF] Tristan Divider, Jumbo Machinder Neo Machinder Z, and Robot Damashii [Side EVA] Eva Unit 2 New Theatrical Ver.. He also said that he likes S.H. Figuarts Kamne Rider Kabuto series, and is looking forward to the release of Kamen Rider W Fang Joker.

From the interview, Soichiro Hoshi said he would like to see future releases including:
- Kazuma from "S-CRY-ed" (character voiced by himself)
- Saudade of Sunday (Yoroi of Michael Gallet, voiced by himself in "Gun X Sword")
- Vital Guarder (a battleship from "Infinite Ryvius". Soichiro Hoshi voiced Yuuki Aiba, the protagonist's brother in that anime).

Soichiro Hoshi also hopes for the release of Robot Damashii [Side MS] Strike Freedom Gundam, as well as G.F.F.N. Freedom Gundam.

Soichiro Hoshi voiced for Kira Yamato in "Gundam SEED" for your information. ^^
