Valsione has to be one of the most unreal OG mechs in the OGverse with it’s mechamusumune appearance. With a kawaii bishie face like that, extra skills like decals layering and air brushing are required because you’re not just assembling a mecha but also painting a GIRL. Not bad for some challenges once in a while and should you are afraid that you would screw up on this one, then you should just settle in for other mechamusumunes like figmas and nendoroids, which are finished works and perfectly suits those rich spoilt fags who are too lazy to move a finger.

*sigh* Dude, its a Kotobukiya kit, so the face will be more than probably be prepainted.

Comment by Nova MK X

The funny thing about codename’s statement this time is that Figmas are about half the price of this kit and even Nendoroids are cheaper. If you’re strapped for cash, it would seem that getting the Figmas and Nendoroids would be the smarter option as opposed to the Valsione kit.

As for the kit itself, I think Nova MK X is right. Pretty much all the other SRW 1/144 kits have had prepainted faces, I don’t see why this one would be any different. I’m actually quite surprised that they’re releasing this kit ahead of a bunch of other mechs (I was kinda hoping that the ART-1 or Gespenst RV would be the next 1/144 SRW kit).

I’m glad Kotobukiya is producing something different from the usual personal trooper. I expect a Compatikaiser or a Ialdabaoth soon…

‘kawaii bishie face’

Oxymoron right there.

‘mechamusumunes like figmas and nendoroids’

Please learn to spell and there are no mecha musume from either lines yet.

‘extra skills like decals layering and air brushing are required’

Coming from the skill-less and willing to learn.

tl:dr c:v making an idiot out of himself again.

(Man,, I want that in chogokin style….

It’s going to be even more horrible if this doll face casted in metal, like Maria from Metropolis? Of course you would want it in Chogokin because you won’t have to paint and polish it at all. As for the Chogokin Ikkitousen chippendale, who knows it could be worse because of the disfigured pferd mode that turns the horse into a dachshund-all to carry the Daizengar.

Sorry for everything

Comment by judo0054

@Kouban: Because it’s fun. Always make weak useless comment and too itchy to make fool out of him like previous topic.

What a funny joke after said: “Not bad for some challenges once in a while and should you are afraid that you would screw up on this one, then you should just settle in for other mechamusumunes like figmas and nendoroids, which are finished works and perfectly suits those rich spoilt fags who are too lazy to move a finger.”
CV, It seem you wanted to said “after i buy it , i don’t want assemble it because i’m too scared if i screw it up.” It like you tell anyone that you lack of skill in it and tell anyone else who lack of skill like you not to try it and better buy some Figmas. How can someone increasing his/her skill without a try and learn from failure.
And i think Figma won’t release Valsione because all Figma character are human based, not mecha based. Revoltech has possibility to make Valsione.

Comment by Fighters

I hate reading the comments section, CV alwasy manages to get on here and get first post and start all this bashing, CV seems to enjoy all this negative attention he garners, well, if the mod can’t curve this or stop it all together, I think I’ll just hang around http://www.srwg-w.org/ Its not worth trying to filter through all this bashing to find ONE useful link to something cool that the rest of you guys post (like what judo0054 posted). Thanks for the useful info guys, and a solid FUCK you to CV, enjoy the hate, troll

It looks horrible.

Horrible? She’s cute.

Hopefully the hair at rear won’t limit much her head turning.

Comment by BD

@Kouban
finally someone who gets it.. good for you.

So does banpresto forgot about Valsione R or something? havn’t seen it for yearssss now…

Comment by realgundam

i guess i getting this as part of my collection… hoping for granzon/ neo granzon to be released in this 1/144 line.

Comment by RJ

Better than paying $300+ for the Volks figure of her.
This might be worth saving for an airbrush to actually make this one look great, rather than just brushes.

Comment by Ed

I keep getting amazed of how CV can pull out the most absurd irrelevant arguments just to say something negative about everything that gets posted here. I wonder if he’s trying to play different sells, or disagree to piss everyone else because it makes me smarter. Probably both 🙂

Comment by Ekove

For any rich fags, all they have to do is to employ someone to do the dirty work. Like employing professional gamers to play MMORPGs for them, they can also get professional modelers to do this Valsione for them, which is what I see in most of you.

So why bother buy this piece of crap when you know it’s going to ended up looking plain on your desk? What more, this Valsione is getting out-of-date as she was designed back in 1996 and now she’s a 12 year-old virgin, which is old according to bishie standards. There are so many new mecha musumunes out there now and some are capable of transforming into a bike or plane, pretty much like Centurions. Playing too many SRWs has really turn fags retarded now

Comment by codename:v

CV, Valsione was designed in 1994 or earlier in SNES/Famicom’s SRW 3( appeared in the SRW 2 storyline). U should do some research before u start to complain which give other people some misleading and irrelevant information here lol

I think Valsione model kit is still worthy for collection especially for hardcore SRW fans since this mecha is one of the oldest playable unit in SRW line.

CV: Valsione was designed in the 1994 or earlier, not 1996 and first appeared in SRW 3. Don’t give misleading info, CV. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valsione

I guess Valsione is still worth as a collection especially for SRW hardcore fans who play the first few SRW games.

Comment by RJ

@CV
yeah, people who like anime girls are total fags
and as for this model kit, your right, this completely breaks all the rules of giant mecha anime, like, its to unrealistic, its a girl, and screw animes that have “unrealism” in them. Gawd, why would anyone possibly want this model kit?

Dude, who are you trying to convince. Who respects your opinion? You obviously hate SRW, which you shouldn’t have anything to do on this website since thats all it deals with, quit torturing yourself by visiting this website. Go practice your Photoshit jobs and post them on deviant art, you need it

‘Valsione is getting out-of-date as she was designed back in 1996’

Look who’s talking. You’re the one who did a piece with a VF-1, which dates back to the early 80s. By your logic, it’s out of date too. So why draw it?

‘which is what I see in most of you.’

And all is an ego maniacal artist who thinks that because of his bitching and moaning would make big name companies notice him and hire him.

WTF is going with CV ??

Dude , you are spouting this crap on a site/blog thats named SRW-Hotnews….. seriously how stupid yan you get ?

And the Valsione is an awesome design and i really DONT get you effin’ point with the Mecha-Musume stuff, when i want a Valsione i gonna buy one and not something that eventually might look possibly like one, and even thats a real low statment since what the hell do these have to do with this design in the first place ?

Damn Moron…

Comment by Nova MK X

looks decent enough, the face will probably come prepainted like many of koto’S original generation mechs or characters ( kyosuke and bullet) . a great kit for the normal valsion, hope koto makes the valsion R next

Comment by siegmund

CV have the extremely wrong idea that Mecha had to be Hard Science Realistic, yet he can’t grasp the idea that in general Mecha isn’t realistic, try to be close to realism maybe, but being 100% realistic? Never. Hell even the UC desings and Katoki desings you worship are as unrealistic, and then you go around saying that SRW fans or others aren’t Mecha Fans at all, a real Mecha Fan knows that expecting ubber realisimn in Mecha is stupid and out of place.

I really don’t see the problem with Valcione, i think the funny aspect about her is pretty much the fact that she’s like a Giant Mecha Musume, meant to make both enemies and allies that meet her be weirded out. Yet in general Valcione had being shown as a capable unit that isn’t just “looks”. Just because it can’t transform, that doesn’t mean it’s inferior to other “transformable” Mecha Musumes, in fact, at the end transformation is a gimmick that only makes it be different but not better.

And i’m not going to comment much about his stereotyped comments about “Rich Fags” it’s plainly obvious how out of place that part was.

Comment by Metzen

What more, this Valsione is getting out-of-date as she was designed back in 1996 and now she’s a 12 year-old virgin, which is old according to bishie standards.
lol, CV wants ‘some’ from a inanimate object

Comment by lxs

@Ekove : Like i said it’s fun to played with his … don’t know how to said … junk.. scum…or funny comment.

@CV:”For any rich fags, all they have to do is to employ someone to do the dirty work. … they can also get professional modelers to do this Valsione for them, which is what I see in most of you.” That’s because they don’t want to mess-up their plamo, at least they still can buy it not like you always grumble because lack some money to buy one.
“this Valsione is getting out-of-date as she was designed back in 1996 and now she’s a 12 year-old virgin, which is old according to bishie standards. There are so many new mecha musumunes out there now and some are capable of transforming into a bike or plane, pretty much like Centurions.” Are you collected some busou shinki-strike witches-sky girls figures?

@Metzen: CV absolutely too dumb, wanted close to realistic but jump over the reality of real world and get himself confused with his own realism. Like he talks about absurd aerodynamics thing and ended up with smooth surface of F-22? what a idiot, more than that, moron! Since the realism in present mecha is better and better from mecha in 80’s like getter and mazinger, but for cv it’s still lack from real.

Moreover, ” Playing too many SRWs has really turn fags retarded now” Just only your fag illusion, CV. No SRW gamers become fag just only play SRW games. How horrible if more than 500,000 people become fag because of this. It is you become real fag because you always gets hallucination like that.

Comment by realgundam

Comment by RJ
