The Main Macross Frontier Machine ‘Valkyrie VF-25’ Appears in Life Size at Solamachi (first permanent exhibition) Hidetaka Tenjin Invited to Produce an Exhibition of Unprecedented Detail!
Valkyrie is a general name for transforming robots in the animation series “Macross.” The VF-25, the latest and the most advanced model among the Valkyrie series, is the favorite of the hero Alto SAOTOME in the television animation version “Macross Frontier.” The primary feature of the Valkyrie is that it can transform into three shapes according to its situation: a fighter jet Fighter, a human shaped Battroid, and an intermediate form known as Gerwalk. This exhibition is a life-size model of the Gerwalk form of the Valkyrie VF-25F. In conjunction with the public opening of this exhibition, the “Macross Feature CIT Project” has also been launched. In this project, the executive director and mechanical designer, Shoji KAWAMORI, of the Macross Frontier has been working closely with us at Future Robotics Technology Center (fuRo) in Chiba Institute of Technology (CIT) to create robots that have never been seen before.
