Macross Version

 Offered is an ultra-rare example of popular G1 fighter jet: Jetfire – MACROSS variant.  This valuable large box item is one that gets veteran G1 collectors excited as very few have survived.  The Macross Jetfire rarely hits the market and when it does, it unsurprisingly results in a feeding frenzy of offers.  The Macross verision is an early release of Jetfire showcasing a handful of different features from the general Jetfire release.  These include:

  • Macross symbol on the wing (this one is the sticker version which is thought to be rarer than the painted version).  The general release is missing this symbol. 
  • The black line that rounds the cockpit glass which is missing from the general release
  • Clearer cockpit glass than the general release
  • Details in the head prongs are different in the lower region.  More detail than the general release

 Our example is an absolute stunner in regard to condition.  Rich, deep color all around.  No flap crease.  The factory tape is sealed on one end and carefully cut on the other, but never removed.  The only blemish we could find is light color break along each edge.  AFA has inspected the contents and confirmed everything is brand new and complete, and most importantly confirmed that this is indeed an authentic Macross variant.  One of the rarest pieces in all of G1 and one of the best looking examples of Jetfire you will ever see!  Encapsulated by AFA (85, 85-85-90), #14713332
