The slick transforming Macross mecha from the likes of Yamato and Toynami in recent years makes this collection of 15th Anniversary action figures look, well, rather pathetic. In 1998, however, these were some pretty cool toys - despite their minimal articulation (5 points) and very soft sculpts (but built Tonka tough). These Macross figures were also one of my first experiences with a Japanese import - the 7-inch figure collection produced only in Japan. These toys didn't transform so if you wanted your favorite Valkyrie in GERWALK mode you had to purchase a separate figure. Sorry, but fighter mode wasn't an option.
