With preorders for Bandai’s recently unveiled 1:48 scale DX Chogokin VF-1J opening today, multiple stores in Akihabara have displays set up to show off the upcoming toy to curious shoppers. Akihabara Yodobashi Camera in particular had an entire wall dedicated to it – including a video interview with Shoji Kawamori, and samples of other recent Chogokin Macross products.
Being an iconic, well-known design, the VF-1J displays were pulling quite a bit of foot traffic as suited salarymen stopped to reminisce over it.
The DX Chogokin VF-1J will release this December. Did you get your preorder in?
