Macross Frontier DX Toys (VF-25F & VF-25S)

If you’re a fan of the Macross universe, Macross Frontier is a new series that came out around April this year.

"The series features the 25th New Macross-class Colonial Fleet, dubbed the Macross Frontier, en route to the galactic center. This heavily-populated interstellar fleet (consisting of numerous civilian vessels and their military escorts) contains a makeup of both human occupants and their Zentradi allies. As such, many of the Macross Frontier's companion vessels appear to merge more metallic Human designs with organic Zentradi aesthetics. On the Macross timeline, the story is set in the year 2059, 47 years after the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross, 19 years after Macross Plus and 14 years after the story of Macross 7. Macross Frontier's plot explores a combination of action/political intrigue/space drama more than previous Macross series have done in the past."
from Wikipedia.

Now Bandai are moments away from releasing its first set of toys for this new series. The Macross Frontier VF-25F piloted by Alto Saotome & VF-25S piloted by Ozma Lee, are going to be the first two chogokins (die-cast metal robots) that are due to be released around November this year. From what I understand is that there are going to be a few variants in sizes for these toys but the first set is going to be 1/60 in scale.

Needless to say I’m super excited about this. Not only are the plane modes of these toys looks super sleek, but this is going to be my first set of chogokins from the Macross series that I’m going to collect.

Have a look at the pictures below or go to the main website where galleries of the VF-25F & VF-25S are being held.
