Robotech: VF-1J Battloid Mode
In the mid 80’s, if you liked robots, then Robotech’s Valkyrie was the hottest thing going…
“Not until June 2007 [ed. I just looked out the window in 2020, and I still can’t see one flying about!] was the final version of the VF-1, which could transform into battloid mode, released. It unofficially saw its first combat in early 2007, when test pilot Roy Fokker “borrowed” the first production-model aircraft – a VF-1S that would remain his mount for the rest of his life, and become Rick Hunter’s aircraft after his death – to thwart an Anti-Unification plot to destroy the three primary symbols of UEG power. Officially, the first combat of the VF-1 was, like Macross, February 7, 2009, during the Battle of Macross Island – the first battle of the First Robotech War. Much like its “Macross” counterpart, the VF-1 would remain in service for the remainder of the conflict.”
