Harmony Gold must have toy madness on the brain. After recently
releasing their Robotech series on DVD,
they also started issuing out all sorts of Robotech paraphernalia,
which should make any fan of the series happy, especially
considering how little was available for purchase in recent
1/12 Super-scale Veritech Battloids: Yes, you read
that right. These 5 foot tall statues come with a numbered
plaque of Authenticity and look to be priced at around $3,000.
There looks to be five different versions, including Rick
and Max's Veritechs. While they aren't poseable or all that
detailed for their size, they do look fairly impressive by
sheer size alone. For shots of what they look like, check
Robotech Super-poseable Figures: This line up includes
some excellently detailed version of the Veritechs that are
highly poseable. It's a set of five figures, including the
veritechs for Rick, Max, Roy Fokker, Ben Dixon and Miriya.
Considering how lack-luster some of the previous toys for
this series was, I'm quite impressed with the quality shown
in this new line.
Model kits: BanDai has also created a line of model
kits for the Macross Veritechs, each running at $50 a shot.
Model fans will love the quality of this line. Also available
as a cheaper line of Battloids. For more info, check out BanDai's
Masterpiece Veritech Collection: This limited edition
collection set is possibly the hardest to find but easily
the most worth the effort. Each figure is built of die cast
metal and plastic at 1/55th scale and fully transforms into
all three forms (Battloid, Guardian and jet). They have insane
amounts of detail and mobility. The initial run for Rick Hunter's
VF-1J were bumped up from 10,000 to 15,000 just due to the
And if that wasn't enough, there are also mini-busts of Rick
Hunter, Roy Fokker, Max Sterling, Miriya and Lynn Minmei on
their way and a series of super-deformed Veritechs already
out. If this isn't enough for you, check out Robotech's
website. I'm quite sure that any die-hard fan of the series
will want to get their hands on a number of these items.
