Macross fans beware: 1/72 Transformable VF-25 (Alto's unit) is coming this Fall at 4,200 Yen. ^^
The Japanese mentioned that the different parts will be molded according to their designated colors.
No big deal since it's Bandai with the drawing board and molding machines this time, not Hasegawa. ^^;
The one shown at the bottom left portion of the leftmost image above seems to be the new prototype.
