Harmony Gold and Toynami to release VF-1 Super Valkyrie Battroids to commemorate film's 20th anniversary

Harmony Gold has announced that they will be releasing models based on mecha from the 1984 MACROSS: Do You Remember Love? movie. The models are said to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the movie's release.

The first DYRL? "Super-Poseable Figure" series will include three different VF-1 Super Valkyrie Battroids:

- VF-1S Roy Focker's "Skull Leader" Strike Battroid Valkyrie
- VF-1A Hikaru Ichijo's Super Battroid Valkyrie
- VF-1A Hayao Kakizaki's Super Battroid Valkyrie

The set of three will be available for $39.99.

Additionally, Harmony Gold's announcement has re-ignited speculation about the DYRL? license and the ongoing status of the Macross Rights. DYRL? has been released in several different guises in North America, once under the guise of the heavily edited "Clash Of The Bionoids" by Kiseki Films, again by Celebrity's Just for Kids with some violence edited out and finally, with a relatively accurate dub, as "Superdimensional Fortress Macross" by Best Film & Video in 1995.
