Well Series 1 and 2 was numbers 1-6

It appeared that Series 3 was missed or not released? I've googled like mad and found nothing.

Is the Super Weapons pack Series 3?
For whatever reason, I don't think series 3 has been released. Maybe they decided to release series 4 first as it would be more popular..?

I have a small modest collection (9 in total) of the Robotech Macross VF-1 series of Valkyries made by Toynami.

They arent perfect but pretty good for what they are.
Anyway here are some pics

Naked jet mode



Jet mode with Super Weapons kit








Robot mode





GERWALK mode






The detail on these toys are amazing, as are the parts included. It was a bit fiddly with arms falling off and general looseness. But very fun. I guess with all these weapon options, you have to be patient putting them on and pulling them off.

Thanks for the news about the Toynami releases, Mr Ed. That Officers Battle Pod (Glaug) looks promising.

Ahh... the Cult of Cannon Fodder. I still don't have a CF Yammie

Nice Pics.

I picked up a 1/60 Yammie CF at the last HLJ sale. Now that those Valks have been out for a bit HLJ seems to put them on sale to clear stock fairly regularly.

I think the mystery has been solved now? I just got the Super Weapons pack from BBTS

I think Series 3 was the Super Weapons pack, however, they stuffed up the numbering of Series 4 with 10, 11 and 12. It should have started with 11!

Reason - as per the picture, you can see 7,8,9 and 10

LocusHK have the best deal currently I think. I can't personally vouch for them as I've never used them before.

I don't have a Toynami, but you can see it pictured above. The Bandai Hi-Metal is like a refined 1/60 v2. It has minimal skeleton diecast and requires some parts swapping.
