The Valkyrie, though, looks great. It also has the half-robot half-plane Gerwalk mode that looks cool as well. Take that, you fuckugly transformers!
Anyway, there's a new Macross series in Japan called Macross Frontier, and they released a new Valkyrie design, using the original colour scheme. This makes comparison easy, and that's what you'll find below.
I like robots, OK? Shush.
While I think the old design is just brilliant, the new one really appeals to me as well. Ideally I'd have both, parked in the yard, ready to rain destruction, or commute to work.
Both of these toys have been re-released recently, for the entirely reasonable <cough> price of ~$125 each.

I've blathered on about these silly things before:
