Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Were the YF/VF-19's wing root laser guns ever used in animation?

Was there ever a Macross mecha section? If yes, why was it removed?

The Weltall-2 reminds me of God Gundam due to the way they go into hyper mode.

Re: Unusual Super Robot?

I don't consider the golems, aura battlers, and guymelefs as "super robots". They are common tech in their respective worlds just like the mobile suits and variable fighters of Gundam and Macross, respectively. the damage it takes is registered as pain to the pilot. This idea was later reu...

Force Five aired four years before Transformers.

Re: Questions regarding the SRW Huckebein

Despite the Huckebein having vulcan guns mounted in the head, its line art and toys / model kits don't have visible gun ports.

Destroy Destiny's hands and it won't be able to use any of its weapons except for the vulcans.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I believe the only other model besides the VF-1 Valkyrie to have individual FAST Pack model numbers cited in official Macross setting materials is the VF-11. Variable Fighter Master File  offers unofficial designations for certain packs on other models of VF. Can you post the designations?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I've never seen the VF-19 (A-D) equipped with the NP-BAP-15c booster units in GERWALK and battroid modes. Are they mounted on the shoulders or back?

Do the super/FAST packs of the VF-11, VF-17, VF-25, VF-27, VF-31, Sv-262 have designations? What about the armored packs of the VF-25 and VF-31?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

What are the differences between these gunpods used by the VF-22: Howard/General GV-17L and Howard BP-14D?

Which are the default wing root guns for the YF-19 (Mauler REB-20G or Mauler REB-23) and VF-25 / VF-27 (Mauler ROV-25 or Remmington ES-25A??

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Looking at the VF-22 Master File, it seems that when the VF-22 equips a reaction missile, it also removes the nearby compartment that houses the gunpod and micro-missiles? Speaking of that compartment, can it equip both a gunpod and micro-missiles at the same time? What kind of weapons are the LPP-1...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Is there art or animation of the VF-171 either ejecting its gunpod from its leg compartment or storing it away?

Supposedly the gunpod is stored inside one of the legs but I've seen the 1/60 toy mount the gunpod externally underneath the main body.

I only see "YF-24" but no "VF-24" in that article.
