This is the VF-1S Armored Valkyrie and I thought I got this as a set but looking at my old handwritten notes, I got the armor for 25 dollars in Japan in 1985 and the VF1S in Hong Kong in the same year. During my last trip Japan trip 2013, I saw this in a 2nd hand store for about 140-150 (I think) and I was thinking of getting this for my cousin but I noticed that the plastic was starting to yellow and I so, I ended up getting him the Orguss. In the Macross cartoon, you see the armor is on the VF-1J as showing in the cartoon still (and not the VF-1S as shown below).
Ouch, looks like you did not finish your thought on this one. I definitely would like to have this one. This guy is on my bucket list. The armor and accessories give it a solid look. It looks like a tank and makes I think the armor makes it look like an entirely different robot. The armor alone is over $100 on eBay. Hope you can pick one up for me if you go back. CCC
Yeah, I had to amend my thoughts on the price since I found my vintage price list. You could get the Yamata re-issues if you’re inclined(?). I’m really planning on going back this year and I’ll definitely keep an eye out for these since I now have a better idea what you have.
