Toys: YF-29 Durandal Announced

Over at GA Graphic there’s a pretty cool interview with Macross creator and mecha designer extraordinaire Shoji Kawamori, in which he blithely pimps the upcoming 1/60 scale DX Chogokin toy of the new YF-29 Durandal. This is the new variable fighter that was revealed in the just released Macross Frontier film The Wings of Farewell.

Whilst this has yet to be featured in a game, as it’s just been revealed, the fact that Artdink are clearly working on a full blown PS3 Macross game (off the back of Macross Trial Frontier) is reason to think that this will be a playable mecha in the near future. Most are betting that the game will be released around the time of this new movie’s DVD / Blu-Ray release later in the year, though that is obviously still conjecture. In the meantime, you can always play the excellent Macross Triangle Frontier (available here).

The planned release for the toy will be June 30th at the princely sum of 17,850 yen. You can pre-order it here.

good!so nice ,get it.

YF-29 Durandal = VF-25 + VF-27 + Tornado Pack mashed together.

Why isn’t there a 1/72 high-detail transformable plamo from Bandai yet? Those are still the best renditions. The other toys (DX, Hundreds) get the hip-crotch areas bunched up wrong except for Robot Damashii but that’s non-tansformable.
