Kits: Viper II kit preview

Posted on : 22-09-2009 | By : | In : Toys/Kits, Videos




The upcoming release of the 1/100 scale TRV-06k-H Viper II kit has been previewed over at the Kotobukiya blog, prior to its release this month. This is the 1P colour variant from the first Virtual On (we have a nice feature about the Virtual On series if you’re curious). Originally, Viper II was intended to transform but due to the technical limitations of the Model 2 board this wasn’t possible, much to the disappointment of the game’s mecha designer, Hajime Katoki. Naturally, in the sequel the upgrade to Viper II, in the form of Cypher, retained the transformation ability. The kit itself costs 4,800 yen and you can get it here.

On the recent SEGA AGES port of the first Virtual On, the game featured expert matches via its playback feature. Below is a video of two expert Viper II players squaring off, in case you want to see the design in action.

It’s interesting how they charge at each other like that in the beginning of the fight. It’s like how people bow to each other in Jedi Knight II before a fight begins, to signal their respect for the opponent.
