Macross VF-1 Valkyrie +Fast pack / Armored parts

See the English below:




This is a model suggestion for VF-1 Valkyrie; the distinguished variable fighter from the TV animation "Space fortress Macross".
The Valkyrie is a highly admired pioneer of Japanese transforming robot. The first animation was broadcasted on TV back in 1982. It made a huge impact on both Japanese kids and adult fans alike with exceptional transformation capabilities of changing between the FIGHTER, GERWALK and BATTROID modes. Here I wish to recreate that same emotional ‘‘impact’’, through a single model offering that is able to transform into all 3 modes.

Being an intellectual property with a long history as an animation, many Macross and Valkyrie toys launched in the past and present did not strongly consider construction play as a means to demonstrate or even allow better understanding of transformation functions and designs. Whereas LEGO unique build and re-build play qualities achieves just that and perfectly support endless possibilities for personal recreations to expand on variations of the same model.

I assume it is going to be a big challenge to produce LEGO endorsed models and products inspired directly and created from Japanese animations. However if this entry can successfully gather enough votes to make it into production, then it will be the first official LEGO Valkryrie model that has the potential to introduce greater Japanese animation designs to all fans worldwide and not just limited to animation contents only.
