Fz-109F Battroid Mode (Alternate)

Variant Fz-109F Elgerzorene "Alternate"

Notes

Debut: Macross 7, Episode 1
Description: Examination of published material for Macross 7 has revealed the existence of alternative line art drawn for the Fz-109A/Fz-109F Elgerzorene and FBz-99G Saubergeran. These alternate drawings depict those three Varauta Battroids with different dramatic proportions and lack some details found in the more common art. There has been speculation that these alternate drawings are animator-friendly versions of the Varuata Battroids because many details are simplified and the physical proportions are more overtly dramatic. The Macross Chronicle has offered little in the way of clarification; the Chronicle features colored art of these alternate versions for the Fz-109A Elgerzorene and FBz-99G Saubergeran but the Fz-109F Elgerzorene is published with the more common line art. Since there is a lack of information on the subject, the more common Varauta mecha line art will be featured as the default artwork for the primary profile webpages on this site. As access to rare line art becomes available the alternate versions will be posted as variant profiles. Upon this webpage is featured the Fz-109F Elgerzorene as it appears in the Macross 7 Sketchbook.
