Macross Frontier & Code Geass Merchandises from Tokyo Toy Show 2008

Apart from Gundam, another line of product I'm deeply interested in is Macross Frontier. The first 'good stuff' will come in Fall: 1/72 Transformable VF-25 (Alto's Unit) at 4,200 Yen. Since Bandai is the manufacturer, I'm pretty confident with its transformation gimmick. The only thing left to worry about is the strength of the joints, especially the almost shoulders, which seem really fragile.

Also shown are the designs planned for this model, including the details on the interior of the armor pieces.

For those who are not interested in the model, you can go for the bigger DX Chogokin 1/60 VF-25 (Alto's Unit) at 12,600 Yen (with tax). Release date is in Fall, which is the same as the Plamo version.

Household names: Lancelot Conquista - August release, 3,360 Yen (with tax), and Guren Type-02 - Late July release, 2,940 Yen (with tax),

Guren Type-02, Burai, and Gawain will form the Knightmare Frame set (each sold separately of course). But the picture actually shows Guren Type-02 Aerial Type, and Zangetsu?
