Finally got to unboxing these two figs after leaving em’ in storage for over two months. Gotta say, looks fantastic having both of em side by side with the Frontier fleet.

Just some quick pics of pretty gorgeous figure. The wings are absolutely magnificent.
Looking around the internet, chances are you’ve probably stumbled upon something that you just have to have. I’ve had my share of those… and the Miku VN02 was one of them. I mean, there was just something about it that just oozed awesomeness. The futuristic, sleek design. The bright green that’s amazingly flashy, yet not overly so, nor to the point where it detracts from the rest of the design. It’s just a great figure. Never mind that I’m generally not interested in anything relating to Vocaloids. The VN02 was something I just had to have. Sadly though, it was long, long sold out by the time I found it. There were still some on Amazon and other sites, but yeah, as expected, were exorbitantly priced as a result. Anyway, long story short… I managed to acquire one the other day via a friend (Many thanks!). And well, it’s time to share the wealth a bit with some pictures and a quick review.
Once you start, you can’t stop.

Another spectacular addition to the Almecha line by Alter. Loads of weapons and accessories, great figure stability/balance, even have magnets in the box itself to keep it closed. The rigid hair gets a little in the way sometimes, but no real big. Was discounted to 4900 yen on Amiami recently, but now sold out.
EDIT: Fixed some image loading issues on the “click-to-view” pictures.
Bandai released this beauty as part of their Macross Frontier 1/72 kit line way back in 2009. Some old pics of the process in building the kit and some small details about the time it took etc. I’m only an amateur model kit builder using basic tools like Tamiya Sprue Cutters and the stickers rather than decals, but figured that this’d be a nice topic to write a quick post on regardless.
