Who is VF-1 Valkyrie?
In the fictional Macross Japanese anime series and its English adaptation Robotech, the first mass-produced variable fighter (Macross) or veritech fighter (Robotech) is called the VF-1 Valkyrie.
Origami VF-1 Valkyrie Fighter mode
1/48 scale VF-1S Strike Valkyrie (Fighter mode) by Yamato Toys The VF-1’s Fighter mode is its basic mode and is the typical mode employed when the craft is parked at a military base and is the primary mode used in high altitude aerial combat planetside and in space combat. In this mode, it features a basic fuselage similar to the real-world F-14 Tomcat jet fighter.
Origami VF-1 Valkyrie GERWALK mode
In GERWALK (Ground Effective Reinforcement of Winged Armament with Locomotive Knee-joint) mode (called “Guardian Mode” in Robotech), the VF-1 looks like the nose and wings of a fighter plane stuck on “chicken walker” legs with two arms. The legs are formed by the aircraft’s engines and intakes, bent down and forward
Origami VF-1 Valkyrie Battroid mode
In Battroid mode (called “Battloid Mode” in Robotech), the VF-1 looks like a fighter airplane folded up to resemble a 12.7-meter-tall (42-foot-tall) humanoid. The legs are now straight and bend in the normal direction; the sides of the nose now resemble a human chest and shoulders (where the arms attach), and the laser turret is now a head.
